The Versatile Blogger Award

This is so ridiculously long over due... A while back, Em over at Kicking Assphalt tagged me in one of her posts to receive this award :)

Thanks Em!  If you haven't checked out her blog, do it now!  She is one of my devoted readers... another reason why she is so great!

So here are the rules for receiving The Versatile Blogger award according to her post:
  1. Thank the person who gave you the award and provide a link to their post. 
  2. Share seven things about yourself.
  3. Award this blog to 15 recently discovered blogs.
So here goes nothing, hopefully these are all new things you don't know about me...
  • I wear hearing aids, and have worn them since Kindergarten 
  • Although I'm sporty, a personal trainer and fitness fanatic, swimming is one thing that I absolutely struggle with.  I took lessons as a kid, but never could get that front crawl down (I didn't like getting me face in the what if I'm a wimp).  I may take adult lessons some day, just because swimming is the only thing holding me back from doing a triathlon. 
You may see me sporting arm floaties in the pool

  • I had another blog before this one called My Food Events, but let that one fall by the wayside.  I started it right before I left for grad school and it didn't have much direction and I couldn't devote very much time to it then.
  • I have been blogging on this blog for 8 months!

  • My favorite foods are macaroni & cheese and pizza. Fun fact for ya: I used to eat an entire box of mac & cheese by myself before every basketball game in high school!  And just in case you're wondering I prefer off brands over Kraft... they are so much cheesier!

  • I have a lot of nicknames including: Mac, Mack Jack, Macaroni, Mac Attack, Big Mac, Mac & Cheese, Mac Daddy (my fav, comes from my college basketball days), Mackers...I'm sure there's more!

  • I one went through 7 tropical fish in one summer :(  This was my first time ever having tropical fish and I got a tank with a heater and everything. I bought the fish two and a time and I'd leave for work and come home in the afternoon and they'd be stuck to the filter!  I still don't know exactly what happened, but I think the filter was just too strong for the little fish to handle... Please don't stop reading my blog because I am a fish killer!  I promise it was just a bad summer, I've had my beta fish for 8 months now!

And now for 15 blogs that I have "recently" found or are just under the radar blogs that I love (in no particular order):

Have a great weekend everyone!  


  1. Thanks for the tag!
    It makes me feel better that you're not a swimmer - because I can't ride a bike! (Unless the stationary ones in the gym count?!)

  2. @Vanessa @ Gourmet RunnerSounds like we'd make a great tri team, I'll bike if you'll swim lol
