Try a Little Tenderness

I wasn't planning on posting today, but then Hayley at Learning the World was lovely enough to pass on this little blog award to little ol' moi:

Thank you, Hayley, for thinking I am stylish - I certainly love style but most days I feel I look less than stylish (though I do feel a bit less boorish today with my new much-needed haircut, I must say!). It sounds cheesy but it always means a lot when other bloggers acknowledge you as someone they enjoy following. I continue to be blown away by the humility and friendliness of this odd little community!

Anyhoo, I am supposed to list 7 random facts about myself (which shouldn't be hard considering I'm a rather random person) so here goes:

1. I have 4 tattoos
2. I count stairs whenever I go up or down them
3. I love eating raisins by themselves but absolutely hate eating baked goods (cookies, muffins) containing raisins (don't ask me...I think it might be the texture)
4. My mom and I have the same birthday
5. I am practically a midget (I'm just 5 ft tall, pretty much on the dot)
6. I love elephants and collect elephant paraphernalia (even though I hate that word)
7. I have an older sister with Down's Syndrome and an older brother who's gay (and married - so I am therefore a huge supporter of both gay marriage and disability issues)

And now it is my duty to pass this award on to 7 other bloggers I think are great!

I'm looking at you:

Go forth, you chosen 7, and spread the blog love!!

Have a lovely (and stylish) weekend!

Addendum: The lovely KG from Lost to Gain awarded me this same award on June 14th! Thanks so much! Rather than do the above twice, just thought I'd give you a shout-out and thanks :)

My mom loves and collects elephants too! She says it's because they have such strong family bonds and never forget a friend :-)

Thanks so much, this made my day!

Aw what a nice sentiment! I have heard that about them. I am not sure why I like them - they are just really cute and seem like sweet, gentle creatures. Plus they are pretty easy to find like, anywhere, which is funny lol

Kim Humes said...

No problem! I'm glad you are happy with it

Erin Chase said...

I totally agree with your number 7 - I am a proud supporter of both as I struggle with a disability and a  really close friend of mine is gay.
& for counting stairs, I do it every time! A couple years ago when I was "in shape" I used to try and only climb stairs by the 2's ; ) I'm kind of a nerd, I admit it!

love your blog
new follower!

Thank you muchly Erin! Glad to have another supporter of #7 - my family is so untraditional, I am seriously THE most open-minded person in the world lol. Glad to have a new follower! Please keep in touch!
