A blogger friend, Lil Desiqua, gave me a blogging award, The Versatile Blogger award. It's such an honor, and I really love the community I've gotten to know blogging.
As part of the award, I'm sharing seven facts about myself. I'm also supposed to nominate bloggers to share as well, but I'd rather just have you share a random fact (or seven) about yourself here in the comments. Because I want to know about all of you.
I've actually been trying to put these facts together for a while, but I've shared quite a few random facts about myself over the years (here and here). 32 facts, actually.
And I'm riding a bit of a sweet potato mole high, so if things get a little scattered, blame the deliciousness.
Seven Random Facts:
#1: I have a bit of a lead foot. Not in an endangering-lives way, but in a love-cruising-the-open-road way.
#2: I refused to wear dresses for a number of years. But now I love them. I like to think of my style as tomboy chic.
#3: Pre-braces I had an overbite big enough to fit my fingers in. Thanks Mom and Dad for chipping in the fix that problem!!
#4: I only discovered sweet potatoes last year, and am a complete addict. I eat them multiple times a week. Seriously.
#5: Onions and garlic make me emotional like nothing else. Tears pouring down my face. And the snot. I am never going to cook either while trying to impress someone. Because I will fail completely.
#6: I feel naked without a watch on. I got one I loved a couple years ago and then went to Europe sans cell phone, and now I hate to be parted from it. It makes me feel a little old school, but at least it's one more reason not to look at my phone.
#7: Okay, for real, I'm blanking on a seventh random fact. So ask me a question in the comments and I'll answer. Or, better yet, share a random fact about yourself. Or just pretend I wrote something incredibly interesting here.
But seriously, I want to know random things about you. It will make this whole thing much less of a vanity exercise.
