{My First Award!}

Uncategorized

November 25, 2009

Yay! I received my very first blog “award”–isn’t that fun?? Too bad I don’t need to rush out and go shop for a red carpet couture gown- haha! =)
Thanks go out  to Mrs. MFC for her thoughtfulness for not only one, but two awards…

The rules are this: list 10 interesting {oh, this could be tricky–how interesting am I?} facts about myself and then pass on BOTH awards to 10 people! Let’s see:
1. One of my biggest pet peeves is when people don’t speak proper English–maybe all of our Spelling/Grammar/English teachers weren’t the best, but I know some people who consistently speak poorly, and it drives me crazy {like Bozo the Clown crazy}

2. I have never ran a race of any kind, but starting NEXT Monday, I will be preparing for my very first 1/2 marathon in Nashville on April 24, 2010… and yes, I will be keeping everyone updated with my progress
3. I am O-B-S-E-S-S-E-D with the holidays… between Thanksgiving and Christmas, I only listen to Holiday music, and I am the person that constantly wants to be talking about the holidays… the decorations, the food, the presents, YAY!
4. I hate potatoes–there I said it! Yes, my friends and family think I am extremely awkward {especially being from the South}, but I don’t like them… it’s a consistency thing, and no I will never ever try mashed potatoes again- GROSS!
5. Growing up, religion wasn’t that big in my household… sure, we went to church and I believed in God, but I didn’t really have a “relationship” with Him until just this year– and on September 13th, I was baptized and became a member of Brentwood United Methodist Church… since accepting Christ in my heart, my life has changed tenfold and I couldn’t ask for more

6. I only have one regret in my entire life, and that is giving up the chance to live in my dream city {NYC} because of my college boyfriend–sure there were other factors involved in my decision, but I had a job offer from my internship {Y&R: a very prestigious advertising firm} and I decided to come home to Tennessee instead… it’s the ONE thing I know I’ll always regret

7. I went skydiving for my 23rd birthday and it was the most incredible adventure I’ve ever done… I didn’t tell my family {beacuse I knew they would FREAK OUT}, but then surprised them after and showed them the video–the best 70 seconds you will ever experience!

8. I am such a planner that I basically have my entire wedding planned {and yes, my boyfriend does know what he’s in for when that day comes around}… just think of me as Jennifer Lopez in “The Wedding Planner”– “those who do not wed, plan”
9. You know how everyone has a talent?? Like my Mom can find a 4-leaf clover anywhere… but me, I can tell the exact make and model of a car just by the headlights, even at night. This has been tested time and time again and it freaks my Dad out– don’t know how far this will get me in life, but it’s something I guess =)
10. I was named after Natalie Wood, the movie star– her real name was Natasha…for those of you who don’t know me personally, my name is pronounced Na-tash {like cash}- a… sounds more difficult than it really is. And my middle name, Carol, comes from my Grandmother–I love having a meaning behind both of my names
OK, so now I have to tag 10 other bloggers and hand the awards to you… have fun!

Caroline at Simply Smithwick

    I love LOVE Christmas music. And I may even be listening to some right now;) Seriously, the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas is my absolute FAVORITE!!

    And skydiving…you go girl!!

  2. Thanks for passing the awards to me =)

    I am just like you with many of your 10 things about you. I love holiday music, had the best time of my life skydiving when I was 19, I planned out LOTS of my wedding before I was engaged too, and I can tell most cars from their head lights too 😉

    Congrats on your awards!! You deserve them. Happy Thanksgiving sweetie. xo

  3. I love love holiday music but cannot believe you don't like potatoes! hah you are missing out, but totally understand everyone doesn't like everything! Thanks for sharing the love 🙂
