Happy Tuesday Lovelies! The hubs and I just got home from a 5K run in the FREEZING cold! I am so proud of us. Week 2 of Training is a go! WOOT! Also, I have to give a shout out to my bestie Laine. She is a badass and is running the Arizona Rock n' Roll Half Marathon this weekend. GO LAINE!

And...I was lucky enough to get a bloggy award from an awesome new blogger right here in Dallas! Cutie-pie Hayley over at Cheap Girl Chic World made my day with a fun blog award. Check out her blog and follow her! Its so important to support and encourage fabulous new bloggers.

So now I'm supposed to share 7 things about myself. (I also received blog awards in December from Jen over at Pretty in PDX and Jo at Daily Haiku. Check out 7 things about me from that post.) But I managed to think of 7 more things to share (hey, no one said they had to be super interesting right?)

1. I'm getting my hair cut this weekend and I can't decide whether or not to get bangs.
    Like these. Any opinions?

2. I LOVE to cook! 3 of my fave recipes: Curried Beef Short Ribs, Tortellini Soup
    & Paula Deen's Peach Cobbler.

3. Right now I'm reading The Pillars of the Earth & The House at Riverton.
    (My fave books are historical fiction.)

4. I am working toward my ultimate career goal of having my own design business.
    (Need a logo? Invitations? Anything wedding or baby? Check my portfolio.
    Insert shameless plug here.)

5. This is embarrassing, but I'll tell you anyway. My hubs and I took dance lessons
    so we wouldn't look like a couple of morons at our wedding reception. On wedding
    day, we head out to the dance floor where I proceed to freak out and tell husband
    just to sway back and forth. Apparently I was too freaked out to box step.
    Husband says I owe him $95.

6. I hit the In-Law jackpot. Seriously. (I'm not even sucking up! Ha!) The hubs has
    amazing parents. I love them very much. Its such a blessing to have another set
    of amazing people to be related to.

7. Fave shows right now: How I Met Your Mother, Chopped, Glee, and yes, its sad, but
    I can't stop watching The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Its like a car wreck.
    With wine & Botox.

Ha After much debating I got bangs recently too and they were a trainwreck the first couple of days but now I like them!

and I love HIMYM and Real housewives too, That medium lady gave me the creeps.

Oooh, I like the Nicole Richie bangs and I think they'd look great on you. They might be a pain, though, when you train for your half-marathon. Speaking of which, my training starts the week of January 24. I can't wait!! I've signed up for the Edge to Edge half-marathon, which is on Vancouver Island. The run takes place literally beside the Pacific Ocean. I can't wait!!!

For #1 - YES!! They would look adorable on you!

Agree with Daily Jo! The bangs would look lovely, but would be a pain in the you-know-what for training!

Thanks for the shout out! I'm thoroughly excited for my half! :) the training process has been super-rewarding. I'm so glad I didn't quit, as I had expected I would!

Congrats on your training success and all your awards! I'm so proud of you little friend!!!

Much love, L

2. Thanks for the recipes! Andy and I only make a handful of things (we're not so good in the kitchen) so it'll be nice to try something new! :)
5. Aw! I can relate. Except we were like the only ones dancing at my wedding, no one else wanted to step out onto the dance floor (except my sisters and a few others). It was really stressful.
