I am such a terrible blogger! So many of you have tagged me for awards and it's been weeks and weeks and weeks since I've posted about them!

Very recently, I've also welcomed my 200th (and then some) followers and truly, each and every one of you makes my day! Thank you, thank you for reading!

I've been a bit of a blog-slacker lately, but "life things" have picked up a bit in the last couple of weeks and let me just say, my plate is a bit full at the moment. But enough about that serious shtuff..

Dezzy Lou Where are You nominated me for this little diddy. I'm a newbie to her little slice of blog heaven and can't get enough! I've spent most of my lunch hour catching up on her posts!

Because I'm such a good little rule follower, here's my list of 7 (more) things you may or may not know about me!

1. Hubs and I will be married for TWO years at the end of this month. We dated for three years before becoming engaged. We were engaged for approximately 18 months before we became Mr. and Mrs. M. and as of January 27, 2010, we'll have been together for a whopping 7 years. Ask Hubs and he'll say, "7 years? That's it? Feels like a lifetime." Funny guy.

2. I can sort of play the piano. I've played the drums since I was in the fifth grade and have recently (okay fine, within the last year) attempted to teach myself how to play the acoustic guitar. (I secretly want to have that coffee shop girl-and-her-guitar thing going on...)

3. I can only play Smoke on the Water and a handful of Christmas songs on the guitar. Therefore, I should probably give up my dream of being a mysterious, emo-esque coffee shop girl-with-her-guitar.

4. I love Christmas music. Sometimes, when I'm around the house doing those silly little house chores that have the ability to suck the absolute life out of you, like tidying up, vacuuming or dusting, I will throw on a Christmas mix circa 2001 and it just seems to make me uber productive. Weird, I know.

5. I love my job. I don't blog about it often, but I LOVE it. Not many people can honestly say that. I've always wanted to be a nurse and I can't imagine working in any other specialty than Oncology.

6. I have Essential Idiopathic Hypertension. (This is a new one for me, just diagnosed last month after a couple visits to the ER and a rendezvous or two with my primary doctor, who, by the way, is nearly 100 years old and ilovehimandiwanthimtobemygrandpaRIGHTNOW). I'm twenty six years old and I take the same blood pressure medication as some of my friends' grandparents. I may be a great nurse but I make for one terrible patient. I can't remember to take my meds at the same time every day! Maybe I just need to retire now. Hubs, whatchya think?

7. I didn't learn how to swim until I was 8 years old. No joke. Private swim lessons in your own backyard? Fail. Group lessons at the town lake? Fail. Group lessons at the town pool? Maybe it had something to do with the creepy seaweed that always managed to find my feet? Fail. It wasn't until I was enrolled in lessons at a local spa that I finally learned how to swim. I.was. 8.

I now tag the following bloggers, my NEWEST and most FABULOUS followers, for BOTH of these prestigious little bloggy awards:

Jenni at HelloWorld

Meredith at La Buena Vida

Alisa at Daily Violets

Chelsea at A Colorado Cupcake

that's it for now folks!

  2. Congrats on your awards :) I am so like that with the Christmas music as well. I put on the only CD we have...NOW That's What I Call Christmas...and jam my little heart out :)

  3. Congrats on your awards. I love that you're an oncology nurse that's so amazing and I can't thank you enough for what you do for cancer patients everywhere my mother's nurses are some of my fave people in the entire world!!
