I'm Telling You About Myself

Lady Bug at My Journey to Conception was very sweet to include me on the above award.  She has a very cool-looking blog and has been diagnosed with endo, which may be impacting her fertility journey.  She's a devoted follower and supporter and I so appreciate her presence!  Thanks Lady Bug!

Similar to the Liebster Blog Award, certain rules also apply in receiving this award:
  • Thank the person who passed the award on to you.
  • List 7 things that people may not know about you.
  • Pass the award to 15 other bloggers and don't forget to notify them as well.
1) I love food -- to eat it and to cook it.  When I go on vacation, my schedule revolves around meals.  I grew up in California, so desperately miss In-n-Out and Trader Joe's.  It's on my life list to eat at the The French Laundry in Napa, Per Se in NYC and Masa in NYC.

2) I was once invited to audition for Cirque du Soleil's KA in Las Vegas.  I didn't make the cut, which is okay. 3) I met DH when we were both in a swing dance performance group.  I was on the A-team, he was on the B-team.  : )  Lindy Hop, to be exact.  Now, we mostly just dance at weddings.

4) I have a very crass sense of humor.  I love The Oatmeal, shows like South Park and movies like Get Him to the Greek.  I prefer smart humor to dumb humor...

5) I did martial arts (have a black belt) competitively growing up and have competed in two world championships.

6) I have a potty mouth, but I do a very good job of keeping that buttoned up during my day job as a teacher.

7) I love to read trashy magazines (like People, Us Weekly, InTouch, etc -- but I'm too cheap to subscribe to them).  CCRM has a decent collection in our local office, but have terrible mags in Lone Tree in the main lobby.  What the hell?  We aren't paying them enough money???

Awardees (I'm just stopping at 9):

1) Yet Another Infertility Blog
2) Life of an Army Wife
3) BattleFish
4) The Cornfed Feminist
5) My Infertility Road
6) Donor Eggs Journey
7) My Fertility Blog
8) The Yoakum Crew
9) Compromised Fertility


  1. Thanks for the award. Wow quite an accomplishment with the black belt.

  2. Wow, such wonderful introduction! My notification might have been late but thank you for accepting the award. It sure is good to know some other details about you apart from ttc. Congratulations for advancing to the next level of your journey. Words can never be enough to describe how happy am I for you. I wish you well...

  3. I am so impressed with your resume!! Very impressed with the martial arts too, wow! That is very sweet how you met your husband and I'm also guilty of reading junk, lol. Thanks for sharing and for the award, I'll start working on my post :-)

  4. Love all the things about you :)) xoxo

  5. Oh yay! Thank you :) I am going to start doing this! Can't wait to learn about you!

  6. Love that you met Lindy hopping -me and my husband met that way. our daughter is named Lindy..

  7. Black belt, eh? So cool! What branch of martial arts? I'm an upper yellow in Taekwon-do. I plan on going back to training someday (either after I get lucky and have a kid or we're no longer trying).

  8. p.s. Thank you for the award! I'm posting my nominees this evening.

  9. Wushu -- like Jet Li, Jackie Chan-esque. Cool on TKD! I hear you re: training. I've def. been a pile of goo in that dept (stopping and going all year w/ iuis/ivf makes it pretty tough!)
