The Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award

Irresistibly Sweet

Imagine my surprise when I got home from my mini vacay and found out that two of my favorite blogging friends bestowed me with this lovely blog award.  A big hug and thank you to Deanna of Paperback Daydreamer and Diana of Offbeat Vagabond for thinking of me.  You guys are some of the sweetest girls I know and I’m happy and grateful to have met you both.

Seven Facts About Me:

  1. I am deathly afraid of cockroaches.  To the point where if I’m home and I spot one I will quarantine myself in a room far from the roach and wait until my boyfriend gets home so he can take care of it.  Yes, I know I’m a wuss but, they creep me the hell out.
  2. I love going to office supply stores.  I don’t know if it’s because I’m an assistant or if it’s just a personality quirk but, I love shopping for office supplies.
  3. I like playing and watching others play video games.  I’ve had some sort of gaming system at home since I was 7.  I wouldn’t say I’m a hardcore gamer but, I’m definitely not scared to pick up a remote and throw down every now and again.
  4. I have a thing about putting things in color order.  This includes clothes in my closet, supplies in my home and office desk and most recently some push pins on some paneling my boss has on his desk.  I think he thinks I’m strange.  *shrugs*
  5. I used to be an e-reader hater and then I got a Kindle 3.  Now I can’t imagine not having it by my side.
  6. I will be participating in Tough Mudder this year with my boyfriend and a group of our friends.  I’m scared for my life but, I’ve already agreed and can’t back out now.  Pray for me.
  7. I love the ocean but, don’t really like to go IN the ocean.  I don’t like the idea of not being on top of the food chain.

  6. Aw! Thanks Jen! You're so sweet!!! (and p.s. I color code my closet too ;)

  7. Thanks so much hon and you deserve it :) I love your seven facts, I am the same way except with #6. Man you are a tough girl :D I hate roaches too, but there is no man in my house, but I am the oldest, so it is left to me if we ever find one. I hate it!

    I love video games too. I am not hardcore, haven't sat down for 14 hours playing before, maybe 6 or 7, but I just enjoy shooting things. Wait, should I see someone about that? LMAO! Great post hon :)

  8. Thank you for mentioning me for the award as well! :-D I'm glad that we've been able to be come friends through this too! :-D

    1. I remember you telling me about your fear of roaches! I have a phobia of Sharks...yeah they give me the creeps!
    2. I find your office supply store love funny! Everyone has to have that one outlet that they love. :-)
    3. Playing video games is so much fun! When I watch other people play video games I get so into it I start cheering for them and helping them figure out their next moves.
    4. I have never been that way except wanting my DVDs to be in alphabetical order...I know a lot of people like that though so it's all good. :-D
    5. I wouldn't say I'm an e-reader hater...I just prefer my paperbacks. LOL. There's just something about a book and paper in my hands.
    6. Tough Mudder looks like a blast! Will you actually be recorded and be on TV?!?!
    7. The ocean is cool but then it goes back to the shark thing...I agree with your not being the top of the food chain anymore.

  9. @Julie - You're very welcome. LOL! Woohoo...closet color coordinators unite!

    @Diana - Thanks my friend! LOL...I wouldn't say so much tough as I would say easily duped. LMAO! You're perfectly normal. I like shooting stuff up too.

    @D - You're very welcome! How could I not?! Sharks are indeed creeptastic. LOL! The video game cheer squad. I think it's got a certain ring to it. No clue if we'll be on TV but, my boyfriend and his friends want to get helmet cams to document our torture.
