I am so excited!!! My first award. Thank you Kim for handing me the award...I do not know how stylish I am..but I will take it. lol  Since I am going through such a hard time  with infertility...this just brightens my world!!:) And the greatest part of this is I get to give awards out too.

Only 7..hmmm hahaha

1) When I turned 21, I achieved a promise I made to myself a year prior: to walk a marathon. I did in Hawaii and I  made it to the finish line. It was one of my favorite memories, training with team in training and meeting so many great people. 

2) I traveled to Israel when I was sixteen. It was another great adventure. so many great people I met and such great history to be seen. 

3) a silly favorite guilty pleasure is watching the reality show big brother. I get so hooked. It is on after dark every night and three times a week during the summer. I just love the psychology behind it. It is just about the best reality show!

4) I had a dalmation while growing up. She was my best friend. We used to go to the beach and have picnics. I would bring pretzels and cheese. And in another bag would be lots of good cookies for her. And then we would stop and get ice cream for both of us. I loved her so much. My boyfriend would get jealous! He said I loved her more than him. It is probably true! loved them equally!

5) I am extremely giggly! I have the worst giggle fits. Normally if I am in a good mood, I will probably have everyone giggling or singing. Good times. 

6)  I have a Psychology background. I have a B.A. in Psychology and went to grad school for a master's in counseling..let's just say...did not proceed in that area...that story is for another post.

7) I love black licorice! Have you ever tried black licorice gum and ice cream. So delish!!

oh here are the awards..I really can't just pick 15...

I think I went over...oops:). But these blogs have made my blogging experience  so rich and meaningful. I am
sure I am missing a few..but theseblogs have brought me to tears and laughter, helped ignite the fire in me and helped me see the light when I was far down in the dumps.


  1. Hi. Learned some new things about you. I too like black licorise (sp?) Especially in the good and plenty candies. Isreal, how amazing!! I have thought about doing a martahon (walking it) but, I never get around to getting my lazy, fat butt up to do it. LOL.

    I enjoy reading your blog and sharing my journey from my blog with you as well. So, no thanks needed. Thanks for supporting me on my journey.

  2. Loved reading your 7 things! Thanks for the nomination!!!

  3. oh hey! Thank you so much! This is an amazing surprise on such a not-so-amazing day!

    and, I'm not ashamed to admit this here, but I just ate a Good&Plenty out of the couch yesterday. No telling how long it was there, but that candy shell really protects the licorice inside.

    I hope your weekend is fantastic!

  4. thank you so much for the nomination, that means so much to me :)
    love the fun facts about you, so nice to learn some non IF things about you.
    I want to hear the story of what happened with your counseling degree. I have a psych background too and currently in private practice.

  5. Aw, thank you for mentioning my blog for the award. That's interesting about the psych degree. I know another girl who has her bachelor's and master's in psychology and decided to go in another direction. You should post on this!

  6. marilyn, in reply to your question, I find out saturday, so 4 more days! eak!
