Stylish? Moi??

Last week Marcy from Life's Gristle  chose li'l ol' me as one of her Stylish Blogger Awardees. Here 'tis in all its sparkly glory!

Ain't it pretty?  Thanks so much Marcy!

Here's how it works:
  • Thank and link back to the person that gave you the award
  • Share 7 things about yourself
  • Award 10-15 blogs you feel deserve the award
  • Contact these bloggers and let them know about the award
(Ok, so it's kinda chain letter-y, but it's flattering and who doesn't want to learn more about their fellow bloggers, right?)

And now, on with the show:

#1.  I am Canadian.

#2.  I speak three languages.

#3.  I can't whistle.

#4.  I am an introvert.

#5.  Despite being an introvert, for some reason, during races (all 2 that I've been in completed) I suddenly turn into Perky Penny, cheerleader extraordinaire!

#6.  I'm going to be in a flash mob!!  But I can't tell you when or where :)

#7. I just signed up for my first marathon!!!

And now, to nominate some fellow bloggers.  There are so many great sites but lots of them have already done this. (Oh, and this really feels like a girl thing, but boys you know you're stylin'!)

Watch MeGo Run  A great running blog that is so much more than that.  Meg loads her posts with great photos and funny stories about her day, her dog and her man!

a steady stream of chatter andrea is an awesome and funny writer; she is the coolest substitute teacher your kids will ever meet!

Hipstir Fresh Cooking I just found this blog.  Jacqui' and Emily have delicious recipes!

OK in UK Mollie is an Oklahoma girl living in the UK; her observations always make me laugh!

Peas and Crayons I just found this blog too!  Jennifer is one of those all around creative people that you have to marvel at!

Happy Girls are the Prettiest Girls Adrian's philosophy is that you're prettiest when you're happy.  She is a fellow runner and soon-to-be trier!

One Mixed Bag Bernie is such a witty writer.  She and Mr. Bernie seem like quite the cut ups!

I Try Stuff On She goes by the mysterious name "anonymous" ;)  As her blog says, she tries stuff on so you don't have to!  She takes pictures of the clothes she tries on and lets you know all about them!

Check out those blogs.  Seriously!  And have a great week, y'all!

  9. Completely deserved. You could take the most boring post and make it awesome just with the pictures alone!

    And it's always fun to have suggested blogs for more reading. I'm off to check out Happy Girls and I Try Stuff On. Thanks!

  10. Alicia: Thanks so much! Yeah, definitely feeling a little scared about that marathon...
    Lola: Glad you like :) Oh, i really hope your friends are not following my training "regimen".
    Kurt: That's so nice of you! Glad i led you to some new blogs :)

  11. Thank you for the award! Luckily I had some time to pop on and check my blog today -- usually it has to wait until the weekend given the long hours at work (that luckily yield the cool office view you liked so much today!).

  12. I Try Stuff On: You're welcome! I guess I could have tweeted you since you're always tweeting ;) (i really need to get better at that whole twitter thing)

  13. Love this post! I am now following you from the hop. Please, help us reach our goal of 1,500 friends so we can offer great prizes. Thank you, Amee from

  14. How cool!!! Gonna go ahead and write mine today!! woot woot on being stylish. I love those pics.haha

  15. I LOVE your illustrations!

    I also can't whistle. My husband is some sort of whistle master, being able to whistle whole songs. It gets kinda aggravating. I always feel that he is trying to show me up. :)

  16. amanda: Thanks! Yeah my husband can whistle really well too...those men.

  17. Jacqui': I can't believe I missed your comment! You're welcome :D I'm gonna go see what I can learn about'cha!
