Lovely Blog Award

All of this is new to me, but I’m doing my best to keep up!

I was graciously nominated by Melanie from for the Lovely Blog Award! Thank you!!

Rules of acceptance:

  • Thank the person/people who nominated you and link back to them in your post.
  • Share seven possibly unknown things about yourself. -Nominate fifteen or so bloggers you admire.
  • Contact the chosen bloggers to let them know and link back to them.

Here are seven things you may not know about me:

1. Although I played collegiate volleyball, soccer was my first sport since my days as a toddler.

2. I have monkey toes, they are nearly a second set of hands.

3. I have lived several states apart from my parents and brother while I’ve been away at college–and the homesickness is palpable.

4. Favorite Artist: Billy Joel.

5. I have a weakness for wasabi, I put it on nearly every plate of eggs I eat.

6. I didn’t get my driver’s license until the beginning of this year at age 24. I have used either my bicycle or my legs to commute while in college.

7. I started this blog on a whim, but am increasingly excited to share the knowledge I have accrued through years as an athlete and nutrition-conscious individual.

These are some EXCELLENT blogs that I follow (and you should, too!). I’ve already learned alot from these individuals!

  1. We have two awesome things in common:
    3. I have lived several states apart from my parents and brother while I’ve been away at college–and the homesickness is palpable. Me too! I have lived in NJ, California, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Maryland, Virginia & South Carolina

    4. Favorite Artist: Billy Joel.!! He is amazing! I’ve seen him live once- will NEVER forget it


    1. That’s SO cool!! I bet living in several places has made you good at adapting to new surroundings. I’ve lived in Florida, Texas, Indiana, and New Jersey– I feel like I’ve grown so much from living in each place! So, in a way, it’s quite a blessing.

      It’s a dream of mine to see Billy Joel live! LUCKY!! I bet that was unforgettable–like you said.

      Thanks for sharing… neat to meet wonderful bloggers like you via the internet! 🙂


  2. oh the toes. I’ll join the chorus, my toes are prehensile and dad reckons I could climb a pole with no hands…*deadpan expression*. My partner hates me moving them because he reckons my finger toes scare him. I bet he just wishes he could pick the bath mat up without bending like me!
    And you so deserve this award, you and your pink-hot blog. I love Billy Joel as well, I have a best of album of his that a LOT of play here whilst I’m blogging or having a few sparkling wines!
    Keep up your blogging, I’m glad you’ve found a passion for it even though it started on a whim.
    I will have to go through your list of nominees! I will never get off the computer, I think I have to quit my job 🙂


    1. Hahahahaa! You might have me beat then with the toes–mine are mainly long and skinny–they just look funny on me. Glad to hear Billy is getting some air time! I feel like if I get too wrapped up I won’t leave the computer either! Thank you so much for the encouragement an here’s to finding balance!! 🙂


    1. yep, monkey toes—haha 🙂 Well thank you so much! and you are so welcome! You may not have played team sports but you sure do offer a whole lot of great knowledge and I enjoy everything you share both on your blog and on instagram!! 🙂
