Beautiful Blogger!

My friend Tawny at A Beautiful Life nominated my blog for the "Beautiful Blogger" award! How sweet is that? By being nominated I am required to let you guys in on 7 random things about me and also nominate 7 other bloggers! woo hoo!
So I am trying to think of 7 random things..this is hard but here it goes...

1. I have always wanted to be a DJ. Ever since I was in high school and I would see someone mixing on the 1's and 2's I was hooked. I love listening to music that is mixed and especially love when the DJ mixes crazy stuff together, for instance Metallica and Jay Z or Def Leppard and Eminem....LOVE IT! DJ Hero came out around Christmastime and I soooo wanted it, but I couldn't justify spending that much money on myself right now!

2. I am one of those crazy coupon women that you see in the grocery store and hate to have in front of you. I cut every coupon (actually 2 of each because I get 2 newspapers) even if I am not going to use it, just in case I need it. I get excited to watch my total fall and I could care less about the dirty looks I am getting from the person behind me in line. The best I have done is have my total go from $150 to $43! woo hoo!

3. I secretly wish I was working! Don't get me wrong, I love my children and being a stay at home mom is such a hard but fulfilling job. Sometimes I just wish I could have some time to myself, or at least drive in my car and not have to listen to Barney all the time! I was planning on going back to get my teaching credential when I found out I was pregnant with Gavin. The job market is not doing so hot in California right now so I haven't decided yet what I am going to do, so for now staying home is alright for me.

4. I am training for a 10K mud run in June! I am also *thinking* about doing a 1/2 marathon AND I am also doing the Stroller Strides Get Fit Challenge starting February 1st! I am gonna be in shape for bikini season!! another woo hoo!

5. I have a mild case of OCD, especially when it comes to my boys toys! I cannot stand when a piece of one toy is in another room or mixed up with another toy. I constantly am organizing and rearranging and "fixing" their toys and they are constantly mixing them back up! It bugs me soooo much! I also HATE clutter. I feel like I am always NON-STOP putting things back where they belong so they aren't out on the counters.

6. I have this crazy ability to drink a beer super fast. (also known as a beer bong) Hahha, yes I am kind of embarrassed that I am posting this. This talent of mine became apparent to me in college. I don't practice it so much anymore. Except for a trip to Mexico with my husband 4 years ago, they had a contest on the beach against the employees of the bar. I volunteered and kicked the guys bootie! I won the entire bar shots of tequila! hahahah yes, something to be proud of, I know.

7. Me and my husband got married in Las Vegas at the same chapel that Britney Spears got married. Yes, it was spontaneous and we were already in Vegas so we just did it! No one was with us and we didn't tell anyone right away. I don't regret marrying my husband the way that I did, but I do want to eventually have a vow renewal and have my dad walk me down the aisle. That is the only thing that I wish I had done differently!

Anyways...those are my 7 random things...I was going to try to nominate 7 bloggers, but a lot of my "blog friends" have already been I will nominate 6 that haven't.


  1. Love your randomness! I totally was laughing out loud when I read about being a DJ! Love it! So when do we get to hear your tracks?!
    Yeah for the Get Fit Challenge! I totally want to do it too! What 10k and 1/2 marathon are you going to run? I am going to try to run the OC 1/2 marathon! I can't wait! I am trying to get back into the swing of things, ran 1 1/2 miles steps!
