I'm Stylish... really?

So, sweet, sweet Mom Running from Cancer for some weird reason decided to reward me with the

Here is how the Award works:
  • Make a post + Link back to the person who awarded you this award - go HERE
  • Share 7 things about yourself
  • Award 15 recently discovered great bloggers so we can share the love (15 is a little much for me)
  • Contact these bloggers and tell them they’ve won (i'm a slacker...  not sure I have time, but will try).
Seven things:

I am not really sure there are seven things that I have not shared with you.... I am an open book... remember? But I will try:
  1. Before becoming a stay at home mother in 2003, I worked for the US Secret Service. My most favorite job EVER!
  2. I visited more countries in one summer than I have in my entire life - 12 (Europe and Asia)
  3. I speak German and Cantonese - well, I can read them both better than I can speak now.
  4. I really, REALLY want to become a professional runner. (INSANE, I know).
  5. I don't own too many casual clothes... I am either dressed up or in workout gear. I love dresses!
  6. Despite being talkative and overbearing, I am actually quite shy, hate being the center of attention. Ex: I love throwing surprise parties, but hate to have one thrown for me. Seriously afraid of them.
  7. I never eaten sushi... scared to try it. My twin sister LOVES it.
Award 15 people:  

I have decided to award the 15 people who commented on my Monday post the award:

The Secret Service! All that travel! German AND Cantonese! WOW! I am like your #6 most of the time. But I want a surprise party someday.

I just did one of these the other day, so people who want to know all the weird stuff about me can come on over and check out the Random Things posts linked in my sidebar! But here are a couple of other things: I don't like wearing socks... except when I run... then I must. I wear two running bras when I run... always. I once took French, German, Spanish and Italian all in the same semester (I actually did it for 2 years). I dream to one day live abroad with my husband and kids... for about a year. There's a few... now come on over and visit!

Awwww thanks for the award. I will have a hard time finding 15 blogger since I have so few who actually read my blog. I am a lot like your #6 people think I'm crazy when I tell them I am really shy and don't like attention. I am also impressed with your list. I love #4 and think you should go for it!
