Beautiful Blogger Award

I was the recipient of the Beautiful Blogger award from Michelle at Let's Roll Mama. Thanks, Michelle. I loved being tagged.

I'm supposed to tell you 7 random things about myself and then tag 7 people. Here goes.

1. I lived for a year in Northern Quebec in a town called Chibougamau. At that time the closest town was 150 miles south and I got isolation pay added to my salary. I LOVED it there.
2. When I was born I weighed 3 pounds and that was way more shocking when I was a baby. Since then I have had no trouble putting on weight!
3. I am teaching in the same school my mother taught in, I attended and my husband attended although we were not there at the same time. But he did have my mother as a teacher! This actually means a lot to me because my mother died long before I got married yet she knew (and liked) my husband.
4. I love desserts especially sweet frosting heaped on cakes!
5. I have never gone a day in my life as an adult without reading for pleasure.
6. I had to have my gall bladder out when I was in my early 40s and it was one of the best things that ever happened to me. (began exercising and losing weight - major life change)
7. I love the ocean. Even though I don't live in a state that borders the ocean I can get there in less than 4 hours. Running by the ocean trumps all other runs for me.

Well, that was rather fun to do. Now I will send this on to 7 other beautiful bloggers. Sorry if I tag you and you have already done this post! Have a great weekend and happy running.

I will send this on to:

Manderez at Road to a New Life.
Alicia at Alicia Runs.

Great list!

Tara said...

Congrats on your award! I love your #3, #4 (I am the same way about frosting, I could eat the frosting and leave the cake), and #5 (I love to read too!).

Fun list, I love frosting too, much more than the cake!! People at work eat the cake and same me their frosting...two or three plates and I'm done though! I love running by the ocean too, there is nothing like it.

Christina said...

I LOVE frosting. If I could have a little bit of cake with my frosting I'm in heaven.

Jill said...

3 lbs, eeks? I love frosting and cake and oceans and reading... :) Happy weekend, hope you get in a great run!!

Erika said...

I like your list! I could eat frosting without the cake (and honestly have more than once).

Hi! Thanks for stopping by. It's so nice to find a fellow "late blooming" runner :) ...I only just started running about 6 months ago and ran my first 13K only 2 days ago. So I am very much looking forward to being inspired by your exploits!
