Yep, that's right. I'm stylish...

Mike tagged me with a Stylish blogger award. Go visit him. And now, you guys get to learn a little about me (as if I didn't already give you it all). Because of him.
The award involves doing the following:

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

So, yeah, about me:
1. I LOVE to read. Love it. Always have. Memoirs are my fave.
2. I am divorced. I got married very young. And I learned that marriage doesn't fix problems. In fact, it may enhance them.
3. I need alone time. Absolutely NEED it. I mean, if I don't get some every day, I start to flake out and get irritable and crazy. Between working full time at the bank, on Saturdays at the shop, training and a bit of a social life, I don't mind spending weekend nights alone.
4. I like to do crossword puzzles.
5. I haven't been to a salon in over three years. But I love to paint my fingernails, pluck my eyebrows, wear heels and get dolled up.
6. I make cards. I don't know how to describe it, but I paint them. If you want one, send me your address and you will see.
7. I have been to Italy, Belize, Mexico, Canada, Australia...and I'm kinda thinking I'm saving up for Ireland.
 
And I'm also very behind on blog reading, so if you guys have been tagged, forgive me, but here you are...

and, last, but certainly not least... Zen (come on, Zen, give us something, ya know, besides half naked chicks:))

argh, tagged again! Ok, it will be tough to come up with something funnier than the last meme, but I'll give it a shot.

and I did not know you were previously married. You're right, it's incredibly tough.

I'm still waiting for you to contact me and tell me I've 'won'.

I'm on it, Amanda! Thanks for picking me; I'm honored.

Crossword puzzles rock. I sit at the front desk of the Y all Sunday and get paid do the Sunday New York Times Xword while half listening to people's workout woes.

Mine's up. It was kind of fun. You know how some people complain about writing cover letters job apps or online dating bios, saying, "I hate writing about myself. I never know what to say!" None of those people are bloggers.

I would love to see one of your cards! Let me know if you're willing to mail one to Canada and I'll message you my address!

Amanda, just curious if you devised your own cleanse or found it on-line. I'm coming out of hibernation (ramping up training) and realize a winter's worth of junk food is problematic!

Amanda said...

@ tri like mary - yes, absolutely. send me your address.

@frilly - it was based off standardprocess.com, but i modified a bit. didn't use their supplements, just followed the plan. added nuts because of the training load. needed some fat for satiation and recovery
