Versatile Blogger Award! (and more!)

Hello again friends!  I got a blog award, from a few different people and I just kept putting it off because I am so bad at thinking of things about myself!

However I don't want to pass up the opportunity to highlight the three amazing bloggers who nominated me!

So every award has rules and here they are :
  1. Thank the person who gave you the award.
  2. Share seven things about yourself.
  3. Nominate fifteen newly discovered blogs.
  4. Let your nominees know about the award.

Thank Yous
  1. The first person to give me this award was Vegan Ana - a runner who has adopted the idea to have a vegan diet for all meals except dinner!
  2. The second person was Midori, Mighty Warrior - who is not only kick ass at losing weight but is hilarious the whole way :)
  3. And then Kristina at Off The Couch - who like me looks at everything she does to see if it burns calories...and is now cardio waitressing!

Seven Things About Myself
  1. A lot of my OCD manifests itself in obsessing over insignificant decisions.  My stylist told me to find a picture of someone online with hair color that I liked - that's all.  But there are SO MANY colors and I hate decision SO MUCH that I've been trying to convince a couple of my friends to find pictures for me.
  2. I trained myself to smile one summer because I had this friend who just smiled all the time and I really admired that about him.  More than just smiling though, I trained myself to be happy almost the same way that I'm training myself to be worked once and it's definitely working again!
  3. I really want to retire.  I don't know if I've posted that on this blog.  I'm 29 and desperate to retire...hoping that when we're ready to have kids that I will be able to!
  4. I like to collect things.  But I'm unfocused.  I have a mini collection of those lucky cats, the ones that look like they're waving.  I have a collection of glass paperweights - we get a new one every year on our anniversary.  No big, impressive collections yet though!
  5. I like being wrapped up.  In the summer when it's too hot for blankets I keep a sheet out on the sofa so I can still have that feeling of being nestled into bed or whatnot.
  6. I love octopi.  Why don't I have an octopus collection?  Well...I kinda do but they're all dog toys!
  7. Another OCD one, and octopus related.  I love the numbers 4, 8 and 16.  I fixate on the number 4 constantly!
The 15 Blogs
I don't know!!  There are so many out there...I know this is a total cop out but....I'm nominating you.  All of you...I subscribe to all of my readers' blogs (if I don't follow yours, leave a link in the comments section!) and I love them all!!

I have a small favor to ask of you all...if you have an extra minute can you vote for my friend Jasmine in this contest?? they are Richard and Jasmine and they are fabulous!!

Congrats on the award! I've received this a few times in the past week or so and just haven't gotten around to posting it yet. :P
