And the Award Goes To...

Me...YAY! This past week I was given two new blog awards. The first award was given to me by AppGal at Musings on the Mountain , Monogramgirl at A Nantucket State of Mind , and Drewablank at this, that...and what not ...thank you my Fabulous Friends! :)

Here are the instructions:
1. List seven things that make me awe-summm!!!
2. Pass the award on to seven bloggers, I read religiously.
3. Tag those 7 bloggers.
4. Don't forget to link the Queen that tagged us.
5. Copy the pic and put it into your sidebar.

So here are my 7 Awe-Summm things (which I am also interpreting as 7 random things about me):

1. I rowed on the girls' Crew Team in High School. It was also the first year our school even had a Crew team. Since there weren't many other high schools to compete against at that time, we rowed in Regattas against Yale, Harvard, Tulane, and Boston University, among many others. We also traveled to Miami, Tampa, and Georgia to compete.

2. I worked on a 4700 acre ranch in Montana in my early 20's.

3. I can hear the sonic boom of the Space Shuttle at my house.

4. I sang in numerous Talent Competitions in my childhood and teenage years, winning many ribbons and trophies.

5. I like watching British television on BBC America, especially Doctor Who, Absolutely Fabulous, and the original What Not To Wear with Trinny and Suzannah.

6. I absolutely LOVE 80's music.

7. I was a vegetarian for 15 years until I became pregnant with my first son and started craving I can't imagine not eating it. I LOVE me a big, juicy steak! :)

I read numerous blogs so I am tagging the ones I think haven't yet received this award but really deserve it, too. :)

  3. Also--enjoyed reading the "7 Things that Make You Awesumm!"
    I am a semi-vegetarian--I do eat fish and eggs and milk...a guy at work asked me "why do you eat mostly vegetarian?" And I said, "I don't know I just feel better when I eat like that." And then he said, "I feel better when I eat a 12 oz. steak!!!" smile
