7 Things About Myself

1. I'm a Cancer (old school, not the new horoscope garbage) Traits: Emotional and loving, intuitive and imaginative, cautious, protective and sympathetic ... all me. Apparently the bad come with the good: changeable and moody, overemotional and touchy ... these are all very true since I've been pregnant.

2. I absolutely, positively LOVEEEEE pickles. Chips, cut dills, gherkins ... hmmm, now I want them!

3. I was born with very dark brown hair which turned platinum blonde when I was 1 and then turned light brown when I was a teenager. I have been FOREVER trying regain my blondness. Sometimes I want to bring in my kindergarden picture to show the stylist. I don't think it's ever going to look the same, but it's not for the lack of trying.

4. My BFF and I have been friends for almost 20 years. We met in 8th grade French class. Since then, we have grown up together, lived together, been each other's maids of honor, our husbands are really good friends now, C and I are her youngest' godparents. She is so much more than a friend or a sister. She is my soul mate.

5. I'm addicted to shoes and handbags. I have struggled with my weight for the vast majority of my adult life, so I spend all my money on the things that won't grow or shrink - my feet and my shoulder/hand. I honestly lost count on my shoes at 75. Eek!

6. I used to play soccer. I played from the time I was 5 until I was 17 and then I coached for a few years after I graduated high school. I was a goalie - I loved getting dirty and hurt. I was such a tomboy.

7. I'm an artist ... professionally I'm a graphic designer, but I paint, draw, do photography. I wish I had more time to paint and do photography, but my life is full of designing on my mac. Sometimes I have to stop and thank god that I get to do what I do everyday.

10 blogs I love: (I'm doing 10 - I don't follow that many ... sorry.)

1. Seriously? This lady is awesome. She is more of a friend than some of my IRL friends. One day I SWEAR - you hear this Michelle - we will meet! xo

Thank you to all these lovely ladies. I fully enjoy reading about their journeys and look forward to the future for all of them.


  1. Awwwwww! Love you too!!! Yay for making the list! And yes, we're overdue for our first date!!!

  2. Do you like fried pickles? Love them!!! Dill pickles only though. I used to play soccer too-from 5-18, no wonder we get along!

  3. Aww thank you for the award! And congratualations of the pregnancy and a little girl! :)

  4. Thank you for the nomination! you are very sweet.
    I was very excited reading your list, we have much in common: I am very typical cancer myself; my BFF I have known for 36 (eeek!) years; I was born in The Land of Pickles (seriously, we pickle just anything in Hungary, like even baby watermelon?); enjoy graphic design on my mac; and hmmmmmm for shoes and handbags.

    Your story about your hair is quite fascinating! is thee anybody like that in your family? interesting!

  5. Thank you for the award! I love following your progress to see what I am in store for the next week.

  6. Congrats on your award -- very well deserved! I had straight hair till I was 17, and then it turned curly. My sister's was curly, and then turned straight. I'm curious to see if DD will have curly or straight hair as a baby. Good luck with the DayCare visit!
