5K, Award, & Meme

I wanted to do a special post for my daughter who joined the Girls On The Run program earlier in the school year, and recently ran a 5K! She did an awesome job, and I couldn't have been more proud seeing her finish the run, and the program. Congratulations, Chelsea, on a great year at school and finishing it off with a bang! I can't wait to see what you can accomplish next year!

Also, Shubha over at Chutki Bhar pyar passed along the Good Chat Blog Award to me recently... Thanks Shubha :D I would like to pass this along to ALL of my blog friends who are always so kind to leave comments and visit my blog!



I was recently tagged by Mirchi for "six unspectacular quirks." I'm not sure how much these could be defined as "quirks", but nonetheless...

1) I still count on my fingers, and am terrible at math. My poor daughter, in the 3rd grade, couldn't get help from me for math this year.

2) I can't stand clutter and when my roommate has a few things on the dining room table sitting here and there, I have to condense them down to one neatly piled spot.

3) I love country music!

4) I have huge, horrible bruises down my inner thighs from riding a mechanical bull every weekend, and I think I also might have a broken finger.

5) I love to sleep during thunderstorms, or have a thunderstorm on the weekend when I can just be lazy in the house and enjoy it.

6) I'm a bit of an OCD personality and worry and fret about the smallest, most insignificant things.

I am tagging nobody in particular, but anyone that wants to do it.... I would love to read about your "six unspectacular quirks."

The meme was interesting Meeso and congratulations on the award.

I love bread pudding Meeso. They are too good. And the Zataar – wow – it’s my favorite too! In Middle East I can take only this as Vegetarian – Labaneh and Zatar make a good combo. Lovely Posts. Viji
