seven things thursday!

Amanda at Runninghood awarded me the Stylish Blogger Award!  Please check out her blog if you have not.  I love it!  (Other than the tofu part... I just don't think I can do that Amanda! )

There are 4 duties to perform to accept this award:

1.  Make a post + Link back to the person who awarded you this award.
2.  Share 7 things about yourself.
3.  Award 10 recently discovered great bloggers
4.  Contact these bloggers and tell them they’ve won!
7 Things About Me:
1.  I am the youngest of 5 girls.  Yes, I said 5!  My very brave (or very fertile I should say) parents had 5 girls.  At one point my mom had 3 under 4!  I am the youngest by 8 years so I am not sure if I was given the pleasure of having 4 sisters or just 4 more mothers.  Love ya Jennifer, Melissa, Amy and Sarah!  ;-)

2.  For 27 years of my life, I have been actively involved in tennis.  Ok make that almost 30 years.  When I was tiny, I didn't play but watched!  I started at the age of 2.5 because everyone else got to play, why not me?  I was a D1 scholarship college player (Go Dayton Flyers) and having been teaching the sport for 15 years.  Because of tennis, I am strong, independent and own my own business!

3.  I am a perfectionist.  So much so that sometimes it prohibits me from doing things because I am afraid of not doing it perfectly.

4.  If I could financially support it, I would have 10 kids.  I love 1 baby girl running around at my feet, I would love to have more.

5.  I picked up running because I am competitive.  My now brother-in-law Aaron told me that he was running the Columbus Marathon in 2006.  I was a part time runner, but figured if he could do it, I could at least do the half.  I could not let him completely show me up!

6.  I can accomplish more things in 1 day than any human should be able to do.  But then I do not move for 3.

7.  I have these secret dreams of packing up the Ray-man, baby girl and the pups and going on some big crazy, life altering adventure.  Maybe some day...
Most of the bloggers I read have already taken part so if you are on this list and have just let me know!
Danielle Discovering Beauty Daily (if she has time with her recent adventure!)

Thanks Amanda for this award!  I am glad I have found all these wonderful people through the world of blogging!
