Siete Cosas

I was tagged by Michael over at Slowly Tri-ing with a Stylish Blogger award. Thanks Michael! I'm a newer reader of hers but already I'm enjoying her blog quite a bit.


1. Make this a post and link back to the person who gave the award to you
2. Share 7 things about yourself
3. Award 5 great bloggers
4. Contact the bloggers and tell them they've won

Hmmm.... let me see, what seven things about me have I not shared?

1. I bite my nails. It's a bad habit that I've actually done well at curbing. When I was growing up, it was bad, to the point that I'd bite the skin on my fingers and I'd regularly make my fingers bleed.

2. I suppose the above bad habit is because I often feel like something should be in my mouth, like gum or mints or whatever. It used to be food, so I ate a lot and, well, we all saw where that got me. Lately I've been jamming Altoids in my mouth and that's worked out well.

3. I want to take a class on how to style hair. I want to learn how to French braid so I can do my girls' hair up all nice. The girls always look so nice when their hair is in a French braid and it would be nice if it was in one more often.

4. I don't like peanut butter. I also don't like a lot of "white" foods as Mrs. LB calls them: sour cream, mayonnaise, Alfredo sauce, ranch dressing, cream cheese. I know, I'm picky.

5. I prefer driving a stick shift but haven't had one since '05.

6. A car of mine was stolen in '98. It was recovered but completely stripped. I was devastated since it was my first car.

7. I shaved my head completely bald just once. I was maybe 19 when I did it. My mom got mad at me. I looked strange. I remember my hair being really short and I just went and got a razor and started shaving my head. I don't know that I'd do it again. I'd probably still look strange.

Alright, well, there you go. Thanks to Michael for tagging me. I'm supposed to tag some peeps bit instead will offer this along to anyone who wants to try on their own.

I'm with ya on #4 ... Ranch Dressing is the devil ... but I do like PB.

No. 3 - You're way ahead of me on this one! I used to know how to french braid, but that was years ago. Every morning, when we walk out the door, I wish I could do something with my daughters crazy bangs!

No. 4 - I actually like all of those things, but I can't imagine life without Alfredo sauce! It's one of my favorite indulgences!

No. 5 - My husband taught me how to drive a stick years ago when we had a Fiero. I could never seem to get the hang of easing off the clutch without rolling backwards at stop lights. He tells me it's possible, but I'm skeptical!

No. 7 - Never shaved my head, but I wanted a partial mohawk when I was a teenager. My mom would have killed me!

I don't know how you can live without peanut butter. That is a big must have for me... what do you put on your pancakes?!

I learned to French braid from a book when I was much younger. I practiced on a doll. I'm sure you could do it. It is really sweet that you want to do that for your girls.

What a great Dad! #3 is awesome. Sour cream and cream cheese are gifts we should all be truly thankful for! Thanks for sharing and playing along!
