My first blog award!

I am so excited that Morgan from Live, Love, Eat and Play passed this award on to me.  Hooray for my first ever blogger award!

Thank you so much Morgan for thinking of me.

So, here is the deal.  Now I am suppossed to leave 7 creative tidbits about myself, but only 1 is true.  This means 6 are lies...um...I mean false.  I will let you try to figure out which is true and which are false and let me know what you think.  Oh, and then I will graciously pass this award on to 6 other fantastic bloggers.

Here goes:

1.  I am originally from Las Vegas and I spent most of my 20's working as a cocktail waitress on the Strip. 
2.  I have a dog and a cat, but the pet I really want to have is a snake.  I love things with scales.
3.  My hobbies include roller derby and stamp collecting.  I have been doing both since I was in middle school.
4.  I met my husband while at the library doing research for my professional paper during my master's degree program.
5.  My husband and I have done some really fun activities together.  We have canoed down the Colorado River, visited the Grand Canyon, gone to several amusement parks, biked down a volcano, and go snorkelling together.
6.  I was once bit by a spider and nearly had my right amputated.
7.  My original major in college (at Muhlenberg) was chemistry and a minor in English.  I wanted to be a pharmacist and publish papers in journals.

Ok, that was fun, and tougher than I thought.  Now, I get to pass this along.  I love all of the great blogs that I read and I only get to pick 6, so this is a tough one:
1.  Gina from Candid RD
2.  Nicole from Prevention RD
3.  Kristen from Eating RD
4.  Astra from Food for Laughter
5.  Naomi from One Fit Foodie
and for my last one I am going with a non-food blog that I really enjoy...
6.  Sara from Notes From Spain

Melinda, thank you so much! I'm so deeply honored!! You completely made my day!!! :-) Such a fun meme to go along with the award, too - I can't wait to type up my list of true/false! :-)

Hmmm, I'm having a hard time guessing... :-) I think #5 is the true one! :-)

Thank you again!!!

Mer said...

I am going w/ #5 being true :)

Rachel said...

HAHA I know which one is true. I guess I won't ruin it for everyone. :)

Congrats on the award! And what a fun list! I'm guessing #5 as well. But the more I think about it, the more I think it may be a bit too obvious... Can't wait to find out the correct answer! :)

Congrats on the award! I'm gonna say number five is true as well. Can't wait to hear which one is true!

Aww, thank you! And congratulations! Would you like our snake? His name is Pinky and he's an albino corn snake. He really is sweet, but we don't take him out much because Lily tries to eat him! : ) I always love reading people's fun facts. I love that you met your hubby in the library...sounds crazy, but I think that's romantic! I'm a book worm :)
