Tell Me About Yourself Bloggy Award

Fly has decided to nominate me for an award (YaY! and Thank you!) and seeing as I have been blogger blocked, this seems like fun, right?! 

The rules of this nomination are:

I get to tell you seven random things about myself as well as pass on the award to seven other great bloggers (see below).

Nominees, in order to accept this award you must:

-Thank and link back to the person who awarded you
-Write seven random things about yourself.
-Award seven other awesome and inspiring bloggers.

Are we ready?
7 random things you don't know about me yet:

I gave myself bangs last night. That was interesting. I haven't had a haircut since like March? It's really long now, and I only trust 2 people in the world to cut my hair. Both are in New Orleans so I'm screwed til Christmas. And I will bitch about it, every day (according to some people) til I get it cut. So, anyway, I've been missing my bangs, so I cut them myself. They're not even, but I live in Williamsburg. I can get away with it.

I ran an entire 5k last week and forgot to tell yall about that amazing accomplishment. Yes, I have finished 6 half marathons, but I have never run an entire 5k. On a treadmill, no less. It was originally "see if you can run 30 minutes straight" and then it turned into "see if you can run a 5k". I have also decided I need a present for that accomplishment, I just haven't gotten around to it.

Another present I haven't gotten around to? My lululemon for not smoking for 3 months. It's over 6 right now. But being funemployed and all, I really don't need to be buying that even if I go to the outlets.

I might be a multi- half marathoner, but I'm still lazy when it comes to walking around in New York City. I get shit for it all the time and I don't care. The less time I spend trying to navigate through idiots, the happier I am.

I have a step son. He's a 7yr old Boxer. We get along famously.

I am not packed for DC. This does not make me feel good, but whatever. It's going to be a redonkulously short trip, which actually makes me happy because I hate DC with a passion. Depending on how this trip goes, I might even be persuaded to sign up for the Run for Chocolate 15k. But I don't know, that's a lot of DC time.

I just ate an entire roll of Ritz crackers with cream cheese on top and a bag of popcorn for dinner. How's that for carb loading?

and done.


  1. We want pictures of the bangs!

  2. I love it!
    I haven't had bangs since 8th grade ... when I started growing them out. I would be terrified to try to give them to myself. Brave lady!

    When I come to NYC (because it IS on my bucket list) I will coerce you into walking places with me.

    I used to have a step-brother. He was an Old English Sheepdog!

    I have run 5K straight in ages. I used to all the time last year, and once I switched to half marathons it is like I got wimpy or something. So Yay Abby!!!

  3. Fly should know better than to nominate you for any award that doesn't come with Shiny bling. However, I now feel compelled to reply to each fact as if they were each their own blog.

    1) I love that I knew about your bangs before reading above blog. Maybe we aren't as out of touch as I feel. Maybe you should come home more often to get a haircut. I'm just saying...

    2) Woot woot for an entire 5k! Its called training, and you're clearly doing it. Run a full half marathon? I see it in your future.

    3) Races have become presents to myself. That's how boring I am. But damn we've been to some kick ass places and done / seen some cool things. And there's more to come very soon. Can we say drinking around the world .... after running a marathon? I'll make it to Mexico.

    4) No judgment coming from over here for your hatred of dumb people on the street. The only thing worse than walking the streets of NYC? The streets of NOLA during Mardi Gras. I'd rater run an ultra.

    5) Does that make him my step-son in-law once removed?

    6) I'm not packed for DC either, but seriously I don't care. Jeans, shirt, Boston Pullover, and running shoes / shorts / shirt / socks. Done and done. What more could I need? I am so low maintenance. You ... are not. This is why we get along.

    7) My dinner ... Lebanon Cafe. A-Maze. I could eat there every day for a year and never get sick of it. Our heritage shines through.
