I think this means I’m famous! Big thanks to Maureen at Not A Coupon Queen for passing on this award to me. I love that I’m getting an award before I’ve actually done anything – Pretty sure that’s the best kind of award you can get.
In order to keep this award I have to tell you 7 things about myself. If you recall a while back I posted 100 Things About Amber so hopefully whatever I come up with isn’t on that list or the award police may come a knockin’ on my door, ready to delete this blog post.
~ I want another dog. We have 2 right now and they are more than I can handle some of the time, but the Michigan Humane Society is always emailing me sad stories of dogs in need of homes and I can’t help but want to adopt another one!
~ I have a compulsion. It’s not enough to land me on an episode of “My Strange Addiction” but it’s pretty gross in my opinion. I pick my split ends. If I don’t have my hair curly or tied up in a ponytail I automatically start running my fingers through my hair looking for split ends. I’ve been doing it for at least 10 years and it drives my mother crazy.
~ I did a modelling campaign for The Bay when I was 11. My first and only foray into the glamorous world of child modelling. I remember the 5 hour work day being a lot of fun, making some great friends and getting into trouble by the representatives from The Bay because I was snooping around the private home we were shooting at.
~ I am a garbage can. While I eat very healthy foods and try to minimize the amount of sugar/carbs I eat, when it comes to dinnertime I am a monster. I can easily eat more food than my husband who is 6’2. More often than not my portion is bigger than his and I’ll go back for seconds. I might as well enjoy this metabolism while I’ve got it!
~ I’d risk my life for a few more minutes of sleep. When I was very young my sister & her friend played a mean trick on me. They came rushing into my room late at night when I was sleeping, started jumping on my bed screaming “Fire! Fire! Amber wake up the house is on FIRE!” I woke up immediately and told them to go get my brother and come back for me. I’ll be the first to admit I did this – not out of love for my little brother – but because I didn’t want to get out of bed.
~ I wish I was clever. I wouldn’t say I’m unfunny – I make my mother and the ladies at work laugh – I’m definitely not clever or very witty. I think I follow way too many clever people on Twitter that I’m a bit jealous.
~ I can be very morbid. Case in point: When I was younger I wrote my own will and was totally serious about it. I left my TV and my magazines to my brother.
Now it’s time to bestow the award on some of my favourite bloggers.I’m supposed to list 15 blogs but I don’t think I even read that many =/ Feel free to participate as well my dear readers. Link back to me if do.
