Lovely Blog Award

I was pleasantly surprised yesterday to realize that I received this lovely blog award from Emily Did I Say That Out Loud. Thanks Emily! It is greatly appreciated!

Rules for accepting the award:
1. Post linking back to the person that gave you the award
2. Share 7 random things about yourself
3. Award 15 recently discovered blogs (15's a lot, so I'm going for 10. Not all are "recent" per say.)
4. Drop them a note and tell them about it.

So... 7 random things about me:

1) I have only recently become a distance runner. I was actually a pole vaulter in high school and for 3 years during undergrad. At that point, 100 feet down the runway was my "distance." Now, I've completed 5 half-marathons and 1 full marathon!
2) I drive a lime green Volkswagen New Beetle and love it! 
3) We recently moved from Nebraska (where I had lived my whole life) to Arizona. I have yet to get a new license plate, but decidedly told my husband that I need to get one that says "Bugeaters." (Reference my car. You may only get this if you are from Nebraska).
4) My husband and I are high school sweethearts and have been together for 10 years!
5) I don't like to eat anything where I have to pick around a pit, bone, seed, etc. I have taught myself to eat an apple around the pit when away, but if I am home, I will cut it every single time.
6) I am finished with school. All 21 years of it! I am excited to start as a pharmacist resident in July!
7) I grew up literally feet from a lake in Nebraska. I am a beach girl at heart and would give mountains for sand between my toes any day.

Here are the blogs I am giving this award to (in no particular order):
2) Dave and Sarah at 1 Cup Awesome
5) Claire at Claire Cooks
6) Fallon at Fallon's Cucina
9) Sarah at The Pajama Chef
10) Tiffanee at One Crazy Cookie

    My boyfriend loves extra sauce whenever we eat pasta, so it is a must to have a lot of leftovers. The huge can was definitely worth it and SO cost effective. Tonight I'm making a pasta bake with our leftover sauce. Yay!
