Are You Calling Me A Liar?

So Pen nominated me for the Creative Writer Blogger Award! Which meant so much to me because I respect her greatly and her blog is one of my favorites!!  Once nominated for the Creative Writer Blogger Award, here is what you have to do:

1. Thank the person who gave this to you.
2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
3. Link to the person who nominated you.
4. Tell up to six outrageous lies about yourself, and at least one outrageous truth.
5. Nominate seven “Creative Writers” who might have fun coming up with outrageous lies.
6. Post links to the seven blogs you nominate.
7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know you nominated them.

OK…here are my 7 things.  Can you tell which one is the truth???

  1. I spent a semester in France on a study abroad program my Junior year in college
  2. I was a cheerleader in highschool
  3. I was in a local commercial when I was 4 years old
  4. My Dad is a part-time actor and had a role in the movie Ms. Congeniality
  5. Keith and I have a pet fish named Lucy
  6. I was in a Sorority in college
  7. I broke my arm falling off the monkey bars in 3rd grade

I feel like it is TOO hard to pick another 7 bloggers (and most of you have already gotten the award)…so consider yourselves ALL nominated and start playing!! 🙂

I will let you know tomorrow which one was the TRUTH!

I hope everyone is having a great start to your Saturday! Mine has been awesome so far! I ended my workout week with a 14 mile run in this glorious (no cloud in the sky…high will be 65 degrees today) weather! And now I am refueling on coffee, eggs and a ginormous bowl of oatbran. (seriously…that stuffs cooks up…but hey no complaints here!!) Later this afternoon Keith and I will be seeing the Blindside (so excited) and I will definitely let you know what I think!

Do you have any fun Saturday plans?

So here are songs that I have recently become obsessed with while running. (please don’t judge me by my running tunes!! haha!)


Have a fun Saturday and don’t forget to play my game…how good of a liar am I??

Oh and check out Stef’s AWESOME give-a-way!! Or don’t because I REALLY want to win this one! haha!


‘Remember When’ Sunday

Last night Keith and I were totally going down memory lane. It was so fun. But what makes it so fun with Keith is that I are a decade apart! He was born in 1970 and I was born in 1981. So my ‘remember whens’ from childhood are more like Keith’s teenage ‘remember whens.’ But here a few notable things we covered last night:

Do you remember troll dolls?

Do you remember slap bracelets?

Do you remember New Kids On The Block?

Do you remember Saved By The Bell?

Do you remember Hypercolor Shirts?

Do you remember The Goonies?

Do you remember old school Oregon Trails?

Do you remember Keds?

Do you remember CapriSun?

Do you remember Brach’s Neapolitan Candies?


Do you remember Fun Dips?

Do you remember Rainbow Brite?

Do you remember Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?

Do you remember Etch-a-Sketch?

Do you remember Rock-Em Sock-Em Robots?


Do you remember Starter Jackets?

And lastly, do you remember crimped hair?

What are some of your favorite ‘remember whens?’
