Stylish Blogger!

I was so excited when I learned that Julie from You Just Have to Tri! and Suzy from Running on My Time tagged me for the Stylish Blogger Award!  I have to admit, I love these type of awards because I think they're so fun.  I like reading the random things that people post and learning a little bit more about them.

I know this has been going around for awhile now, and I'm sure you are all familiar with the rules.  But, just in case you're not, here are the rules:
1.  Make a post and link back to the person who tagged you with the award.
2.  Share 7 things about yourself.
3.  Award to 7 great bloggers.
4.  Contact the bloggers and tell them they've won!

So, Here are some random things about me.  I apologize if any of these are repeats from posts before! :)

1.  Hi, my name is Aimee, and I am addicted to organizing.  I love to organize things and put them in their own little area.  This is a picture of my training binder.  It has separate tabs for swim, bike, run, strength, registration receipts, etc.
You should see my cabinets and closets.  I have labeled bins for just about everything!

2.  I hate my hair.  I have never liked my hair.  I've tried long hair styles, cutting it short (something I will NEVER do again), and shoulder length cuts and I've never really liked any of them.  I have a really bad habit of pulling my hair in a ponytail pretty much every day and it's getting old.
My problem is I just don't know what style would look best on me.  If you've ever seen "What Not to Wear" on TLC you know about the hair stylist, Nick.  I would love to make an appointment with him because he always seems to know the right hairstyle for everyone.  Someday maybe...


3.  I am TERRIFIED of spiders.  Seriously, just looking through the images of spiders to put on here gave me the heebie geebies!!

4.  I am horrible at making decisions.  Sometimes I am spontaneous, but for the most part, I like to research things and compare options before making a decision.  It drives my husband crazy, especially when it comes to decorating our house!

5.  I love racing, but I really like being on the sidelines cheering on my loved ones and friends!  Now that my husband is getting more into running, he's been doing more and more races.  I love seeing him come down the course, taking pictures, ringing the cowbell with my boys, and cheering him on.  It's so much fun!

6.  Someday I think I would love to try my hand (or feet) at Ultra Running.  There's something alluring about it and I think it would just be an amazing experience.  This year is out of the question because of IMAZ, but maybe sometime in the future I'll work my way up to it!  Who knows!?!

7.  I love when my boys draw pictures for me and my husband.  I have them all over our house and I love them all!  They are on our refrigerator, the bedroom doors, in our bedroom, etc. and every time I pass by them they bring a smile to my face. :)

Now, to tag 7 other bloggers! This is tough because I know so many of you have already gotten it!  So, I'm sorry to be so lame, but I'm going to tag all of you out there that haven't gotten it yet!

I hope you are all having a great weekend!  :)

I am scared to death of spiders as well. I had one bad experience has a child and that basically set me up with a life long case of arachnaphobia.

I gave up on hair a long time ago; which is why mine is short.

Love the rainbow pic! I can't wait until my son can do that : )

I think we should have a Bloggy Ultra or something. For all the people who "know" each other thru blogging to run with people they "know"

DRog said...

Im also putting an Ultra on my checklist after reading BTR! Suddenly I feel like decorating my training binder in stickers:)


Alisa said...

I am trying to be more organized. I used to be a lot more organized but I definitely feel like there are areas of the house, etc that are disorganized.

- I need to hire you to get me organzed

- I hate snakes

- Ultra running, ummm, no for me

Colleen said...

I love learning more about you! It's fantastic that you are so organized. And I'm right there with you on the ponytail thing. Go for the ultra... you'd rock it! :)


Tagging 230+ followers? Hmmm
Don't think that is fair... isn't there some kind of blogland rule about that?

Love your training binder. :) And I love when my kids draw me pics. I have them everywhere. Actually I have a little piece of rope where I hang them above the mirror in our dining room. Um, I need a recipe for dinner and you're the first person I thought of...maybe it wasn't you but I thought you'd mentioned a Tasty Tuesdays...was that you? I've got to get better about cooking period but cooking healthy and tasty will win me big points with the hubby and kids! off to find recipes. Happy Tuesday!

Pretty please, can you come to Pittsburgh and organize my house for me??? :) Or do you have any organizational tips/secrets to share- maybe a future blog post? :) My organizational skills are severely lacking!
