Another Award? BEST DAY EVER! :)

I love this community. SO much. I feel like there is so much support and genuine concern for everyone out there blogging about their personal journeys. This support keeps me motivated and in line on days when I feel like slacking really bad. So I just wanted to say THANK YOU for your support. :)

Speaking of awesome people in the community...Mia Bella Vita gave me The Versatile Blogger Award:

As part of the award I have to share seven random things about myself. Here are 7 things you should know about me (with pictures)!

    My mom and dad!
  1. I brush my teeth in the shower. It's not weird--it's awesome and efficient. Or so I tell myself when I get teased for it!
  2. I'm a potato farmer's daughter. I recently ate my own potatoes at Five Guys Burgers. They made delicious french fries. See the proof above!
  3. I have a very irrational fear of dead bodies in shallow lakes. For this reason, I will not waterski in nearby Utah lake. I think that if I fall when skiing, a dead body will reach up and grab me from the shallow depths. Totally irrational, but totally terrifying. Feel free to laugh at me for this--my husband and friends sure do!
  4. Today I cleaned out my work fridge and there was rotten chocolate milk all over it. This isn't really relevant, but it was gross so I am sharing.
  5. I am the only one in my family with red hair. I kind of look like I am adopted! There is proof of this as well.  See above pictures!  (For whatever reason, it won't let me move them to below each bullet, so I suppose this will have to work!)
  6. I am allergic to some forms of penicillin, but not all.  This makes prescribing me medication a hassle.
  7. I have asthma, but I haven't had it my whole life.  It struck without warning after I had an allergic reaction to a bee sting.  The doctor says I was predisposed to it and the bee string triggered it.  Talk about lame!  However, running is helping me to get it under control so that is a beautiful thing!
Now I get to nominate two other versatile bloggers that are new to blogging.  I don't know who is new and who isn't, so hopefully these ladies are new.  If not, they are still inspiring! 


  1. omg!! I brush my teeth in the shower too!!!! In fact I refuse to do it any other way. :-)

  2. Congratulations on the award! I don't have a fear of dead bodies in shallow water, but I do have a fear of water that I can't see the bottom in (oceans, lakes, etc). That's why the only thing I swim in is a swimming pool. LOL (Oh, and I'm allergic to penicillin too!)

  3. Congratulations on the awards! I'm still getting into my blogging grove but you are definitely an inspiration.
    How awesome was it to eat something from your own farm at a place like Five Guys?! I really love that they tell you where things are coming from, it makes me feel more like its "real" food and not just some giant 100 lb bag of frozen french fries from who knows where.

  4. I love reading your blog it puts a smile on my face.
