Here’s something that made me feel all sorts of happy feelings yesterday. I went over to visit my girl Lindsay at Lindsay Weighs In and found that she had tagged me for this cute blog award. The jean pocket in the picture made me feel that this post title was appropriate. I’ve never seen that movie, but I do have a general idea of what it is about and I hope they wash those pants frequently if they are going to keep passing them around.
Thanks, Lindsay!! I used to love doing these when I wrote my old blog! There are rules. Here they are:
1. Post the logo on your blog. Check.
2. Thanks the person who nominated you. Check.
3. Answer the questions.
4. Choose 10 or so other ladies who blog as your nominees.
5. Post the links to the nominees’ blogs and notify them on their blog.
Bring on the questions!
In the words of the great Gogol Bordello…”Start wearing PURPLE wearing PURPLE!” It might have just a little bit to do with the fact that I’m a HUGE Baltimore Ravens fan, but purple has been my most favorite for years. It might have been pretty obvious when I did that Favorite Things post. Purple shoes. Purple Garmin. Lots of my running gear is purple. Come to think of it, most of my wardrobe is purple.
No-brainer. One need look no further than Betty’s first Halloween costume:
My daughter was the most spectacular and magical baby unicorn of 2012. Runners up would be giraffes and cats. I like cats enough that I have one tattooed on the inside of my wrist.
Favorite Non-Alcoholic Drink
Specifically a venti skinny cinnamon dolce latte. I should just give Starbucks my bank account information. Or get one of their rewards cards. I would probably have earned so many free cups of coffee by now if I had one of those. Okay I’m literally applying for one right after I finish this post.
Facebook or Twitter?
Can I say neither?
I think Instagram is pretty much the best invention ever. I’ve been participating in Fat Mum Slim‘s Photo-a-Day since October of 2012. I love how it allows me a little extra creativity every day even if it’s only for a second.
That bowtie dress might be my favorite ever and I really love polka dots. I have a thing with circles in general. I think they are very aesthetically pleasing and they show up a lot in my design work.
Least favorite pattern is anything involving mustaches. That needs to cease immediately.
What is Your Passion?
I think this blog pretty much sums it all up. First and foremost I am very passionate about my role as a mom. We definitely have our off days (what parent and child doesn’t?), but there is nothing that gives me more joy in my life than watching my daughter grow and learn new things and it is my goal to make sure she smiles and has fun every day. When I became a mom I was also very passionate about holding on to my identity and my other interests have allowed me to do that. I’ve been very passionate about my yoga practice for the past 6 years. I’m passionate about design and love to make things look beautiful. Running is an even more recent passion and it quickly became one of the strongest. I view my runs as kind of like relationships…I feel like I’ve learned a little something about myself on every single one of them. Even the crappy ones.
Basically, life is good. 🙂
Now I’m supposed to choose 10 other ladies. Just ladies? Whatever…I think I’m going to go rogue and pick a couple guys also. I just hope they can fit into the traveling pants.
First and foremost, my Sole Sister BFF, Helly @ Helly on the Run!
Kelly @ Turned Up To ELEVEN!
Michael @ Running Around the Bend
Julia @ Here’s What’s Cooking…
Amber @ PB & PRs
Kristen @ Run Away With Me (Lindsay already tagged her too, which means she extra has to do it.)
Kristine @ Pink Cupcake Runs
Sharsti @ Sugar Plum Runner
Anita @ Dunwaetin
Scott @ Piratebobcat
Elle @ A Fast Paced Life
CONSIDER YOURSELF NOTIFIED! 🙂
Thanks again, Lindsay, for including me! It’s been a little while since I thought about what I’m really passionate about so writing this all out was kind of eye-opening!
I hope everyone is having an EPIC TUESDAY!
