My First Award!

The sweet Mrs. MBL over at My Beautiful Life passed on to this humble new blog the Stylish Blogger Award!  Go check out her new(ish) blog and make sure to take a look at her amazing paintings!  The girl has talent. 

Getting this award means you have to share 7 things about yourself, link back to the chica that awarded it to you and pass it on to 10 fellow bloggers.  Here we go!

1.  I am a physical therapist and work with the geriatric population.  I love old people and love making them feel better.  I've heard the best stories ranging from their crazy sex lives (yes 80 year olds have sex!) to amazing WWll adventures. 

2.  I've ran 4 half marathons but still have yet to muster up the nerve to train for a full marathon.  The whole idea scares me!

3.  I have a new puppy named Uli who is truly my first born!  Anyone with a dog knows what I'm talking about.  I can't believe how much I love that little thing.

4.  I hate vegetables with a passion!  When I was a little girl I wasn't allowed to leave the table until my veggies were eaten.  To remedy this, I would keep them in my cheek and later throw them away!  I know, gross.

5.  I met my husband in the library during grad school.  We obviously weren't getting much studying done.  We always joke that we were studying anatomy that day.

6.  I am such a book worm.  I read 3 novels last week while on vacay.  I'm so excited because I just joined a book club.  Yes, I know, nerd.

7.  Man these are hard to come up with!  I'm a sucker for a good reality show and do watch Real Housewives of wherever.  But geez, those women are silly!

Hope I didn't loose you all there! Now to pass it on to these 10 wonderful blogs!

  1. Congratulations on your stylish blogger award. These are so fun, I enjoyed learning more about you. I definitely know how it is when you get a new puppy. Dogs are amazing.

  2. Amy,

    This was a great read. I thought you would take a couple of days to compile. (I didn't get around to it for 3 weeks)

    That is so sweet that you work with the geriatric population, and I'm sure they'd have some stories to tell! I can understand your love for Uli as your firstborn-I officially consider my English Springer Spaniel as my first child. Oh-and regarding the veggies? I totally understand that childhood trauma. For me it was brussel sprouts. Horrid little vegetable. Surprisingly, I like it now-I just realized it wasn't being seasoned back then, and was extremely overcooked!

    Also, love that you have run a bunch of half marathons.-that is on my list of "to-do's". How fun! I gave Brittany the award too. :)

    Thanks for sharing-it was a great read. :)

  3. wow THANK YOU! Loved learning a little more about you! :)

  6. Thank you so much Amy :) I loved reading your 7 facts--4 half marathons is pretty darn inspiring (especially since I can only run for about a minute at a time!). And please share some of your fav books-I'm always on the lookout for good books. Have a great day!! xx

  7. I had a hard time coming up with seven random things, too. And btw, I would watch all of the Real Housewives shows too, if we had cable. We don't even have basic cable, so I can't get Bravo. :(

  8. Congrats! I'm *loving* your cute blog! I love that a couple of posts back you mentioned "my blog, my rules", LOVE IT! It's so easy to get sucked in to the blogging rabbit hole! And holy gorgeous wedding photos!!! So awesome. Glad you came to visit so I could find you!

  9. LOVE your blog and it is so great to learn more about you. THANK YOU for passing the award on to me :) That is amazing that you have ran 4 half-marathons and that you have completed so much school to be a Physical Therapist, you are awesome and inspiring. Thank you again and have a perfect day!!!! XOXO

  10. Congrats on your award Amy thoroughly deserved you have a great blog and I love checking in on your new posts every day!
