Liebster Award

Posted by CheapRunnerMichelle

Happy hump day friends! everyone tell the many of you are now running the camel commercial in your head?!?
Jill over at Live, Love, Run nominated me for an award earlier this week


So I guess I am suppose to start off by telling you 11 random things about myself - so buckle up - here we go.

1. I have super thick hair - and I don't "style" it like I probably should every day...if I had more money then brains I would get my hair blown out daily

2. Mike and I never really "dated" we just got married...certainly not something that I recommend for everyone...but 13 and a half years later...I think it's worked out pretty well for us :)

3. I only arrived at the hospital just over an hour before I had Kennedy

4. I still get ID'd all.the.time

5. I've been at my job for 14 years now

6. I love everything Disney - and look forward to our annual trip!

7. I'm a reality TV junkie

8. I'm a hard nut to crack, so when people meet me - they just assume I'm a bitch

9. I love travelling

10. I have 6 email address that come through to me on my iPhone

11. I hate parting with my $ but love shopping at Lulu

So now that you've learned some randomness about me - now it's on to Jill's Q for me

1.  When and why did you start running?
I started running about 1.5 years ago when I agreed to sign up for a 5km - so I'll blame the peer pressure on Rhoda (JK) :)

2.  When and why did you start blogging?
This past help save the people in our lives from our obsessive running/racing/running shoes etc. talking all.the.time

I work at a Bridal Store

4.  What is your dream job?
Being retired...or a professional wife ;)   (Hint hint Mike)

5.  If you could eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Math...I think I'm a pretty logical thinker

8.  In light of last night's TV - If you were a Miss America contestant, what would your talent be?!
Didn't watch it...but hmmm my talent...maybe something musical?!?

Don't sweat the small stuff

10.  What's something you are really proud of?
My family

11.  If you were still young enough to Trick or Treat, what one candy would you hope to get in your bag this year?!
The past 4 years we have spent Halloween at Disney - and we have gone to the Halloween Party - which has meant that Mike and I have still been trick-or-treating the last few years! my candy choice - starbursts or skittles - for chocolate - Caramilk

And since this must have been a super boring post for you since I didn't show you any pics - here is a collage of our family run we went on after school/work yesterday
