A Blog Award and Five Question Friday!

My good friend Katie over at Words by Katie presented me with a blog award. Thanks friend!!

The rules for this award are pretty unique. I have to list five things about myself. However, only ONE of the facts will be completely true. The other four might have a little bit of truth in them, but are ultimately incorrect. Think you can guess which one is real? :)

1. The first major league baseball game I attended was between the Rangers and the Orioles.

2. When I was in junior high, my family hosted an exchange student.

3. When I get married, I want to leave the reception in a DeLorean.

4. I didn't learn to swim until I was 10.

5. My favorite clothing store is Old Navy.

Leave your answer in the comments below (or tweet/email them to me!)

I'm supposed to pass this award along to other blogs, so I'm going to cheat (again) and pass it along to all of you!! Let me know if you participate, I'd love to see your facts!! :)

It's another Friday that I'm very happy to see! For more Five Question Friday answers, go check out Mama M. at My Little Life!

1. Can you drive a stick shift?
Now, if the question was "can you drive a stick shift WELL" the answer would be NO. A big NO. HECK NO. I can give you a list of people who have tried to teach me to drive a stick shift and they will laugh at you for asking. Now, if I was stranded in the middle of nowhere and the only way to get home was a stick shift, I would eventually get home. I can't guarantee the clutch would still be in good condition though. Once I get going, I'm okay. It's the whole getting going and starting/stopping thing that I can get down. My own personal hell is being stuck in a stick shift vehicle on a hill. **shuddering**

2. What are two foods you just can't eat?
Only TWO? You know me, I'm picky, but if I had to pick two, I would say guacamole (gag) and pasta salad. Now, I LOVE pasta. HOT COOKED pasta. The whole cold pasta thing doesn't fly with me! Blek!

3. Do you buy Girl Scout Cookies? What is your favorite kind?
I really hope I don't lose friends/followers by saying this, but here I go: I don't like Girl Scout Cookies. Now, to be fair, I don't really like many cookies (except my mom's homemade peanut butter cookies). So no, I don't buy any. No, I don't even like Thin Mints (is now a good time to mention I don't like chocolate and mint mixed together)?

4. How do you pamper yourself?
I usually go get a pedicure (the super-duper kind, where they use hot rocks and wrap your legs in hot towels. It's blissful! I even get little flowers painted on my toes!) :)

5. What is your nickname and how did you get it?
I actually did a post last year on my nicknames. Go here for that. In addition to those names, I'm also called Sniffles and Soul Sista! :)

Go make a new friend at For the Love of Blogs!

Have a great weekend lovelies!!


  1. Pasta salad..... way to make me gag just by mentioning it!

    Of course, seeing as I might just be the pickiest eater alive, it's not really your fault. :)

  2. I think the DeLorean is true! :)

  3. Okay, I think it's either the DeLorean thing or the swimming thing. But the fact that you know how to spell DeLorean makes me think it's that one. If that's true, where will you find one?

  4., now might be a good time to mention that I got the rules of Katie's award BACKWARDS! I have a REALLY bad habit of skimming through directions...which explains why my reading comp scores were always so low! :)


    I'm with you on the stick shift too.

    And I don't know which of these is true. It seems like they all could be...but I just don't know. Maybe the swimming thing?

    I guess we shall find out later! :)

  5. Hahaha I want to go to your wedding just for the site of you leaving to travel into the future

  6. Congrats! I love how you handle awards, I may do the same thing. :) Have a wonderful weekend my friend!

  7. husband lived next door to John DeLorean once upon a time. Congrats on the award :)

  8. If you want to leave your wedding in the DeLorean, make sure the flux capacitor is working correctly or your honeymoon in the future and/or past will be a wreck!!

  9. I think the 'odd man out' is the DeLorean one.

    I'm sorry to hear that you don't like guacamole OR thin mint cookies. I can see that what I thought was a compatible relationship we had needs some work. LOL

  10. OK! i had to google a Delorean something or another and can't stop LAUGHING-----U are truly the best eva!:) I love this chick more than cupcakes! xo

  11. I found you through Freckles and Fudge. Congrats on your award. Your blog is a ray of sunshine!

  12. My husband & I have been eating the HECK out of tuna pasta salad lately! Where are you from? I've found that Southerners tend to like it more than anyone else, haha, but that could be totally my experience... here in South Carolina, lol :)

  13. Sounds like a stick shift race been us would be ahilarious sight ;)

  14. I pick number 3. And if it is true then you are my HERO! HA, that sounds so amazing! When are we going to get hoverboards anyway? ;-)

    I drive a stick shift everyday and get MAJOR anxiety when I am on a slope of any kind- it is quite funny... to other people!

    So happy to be catching up on your blog and hope you are having a FANTASTIC weekend, friend!

  15. I vote for the DeLorean. :) Haha. That would be awesome!
