Sugar Doll Award: 10 random facts

With gratitude, I accepted my first Blog award (yes, I'm new to the game!) from a fantabulous blogger I follow, Jaime. Since I'm not going to turn down a Sugar Doll award - not sure what it means but I like the sound of it! - I'll play the game and list 10 random facts about me, per the rules of acceptance of the award!

By the way.... I did NOT neglect New Moon day! Click here for my heart and soul post for today.


10 Random things about me

  1. I sleep with a fan on at night, 24/7/365. It's very hard and unpleasant for me to sleep in dead silence.

  2. I am RIDICULOUSLY obsessed with: Cheese, Soup & Saltines. If I could eat one thing for the rest of my life for a meal… it would be those three things. I love them all together.

  3. I started superstitiously knocking on wood freshman year of high school and can't stop. Truly, I will always do it, even if it's discreetly on my teeth which I have decided is the closest thing to real wood when wood isn't around.

  4. I love animals more than I can say. I desperately want a 3-legged-dog. I don't really have the space for a Dog at this point in my life (dogs in apartments make me sad) BUT, I would love to own one missing a limb. Just so darn cute when they walk and I would love to give one a home!!

  5. I like to change my hair very often - my hair color goes from Black to Blonde to Brown over and over and constantly. I never know what color I like the most!
    (ABOVE: the spectrum of hair color over the years.You can view image larger if you click the picture! Keep in mind the bright red hair shot is from Halloween, haha )

  6. It would be a cold day in July when you would see me in a T-Shirt and Sneakers anywhere outside of the gym.

  7. My parents are divorced - yet friends plus I have a Stepmom. I have an older Sister and a younger Brother. Both of whom I'm close with in different ways.

  8. Every summer I head to Maupin in Central Oregon and I raft the Deschutes River. I've done it annually since I was 6-years-old and last year I even guided one of our group's rafts. It is my favorite time of the year - being in the desert, rafting and camping!

  9. I've gone through some awful break-ups where I didn't want to wake up in the morning, but the cliche is true - you come out at the other end a stronger person.

  10. I dream of the day I have a large closet where I can organize all my clothes which overflow my room in my older apartment right now! Architects in the fifties did NOT account for girls' love of clothes!


Now, I'm going to pass this lovely award on to a few gals whose blogs I enjoy!:

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I've added yours to my reader :-)

P.S. My brother and sister-in-law have a three-legged dog named Chopper. He's my favorite. He is even on a wine label now - proceeds benefit the Humane Society. Here's his picture:

u're so lucky to be able to go rafting every year!:D how fun! i've only gone once in colorado and loved it! this 6'2" guy was sitting in front of me and fell out during a class III rapid and the guide yelled for me to help him back in. i'm just under 5'3" and he almost took me in with him while I tried to pull him back into the raft. it was pure chaos and craziness! lol yet so much fun!
