I would like to sincerely thank Vegan Fueled Athletic Mom for this award! I really appreciate it!
The rules for this award are:
1. Make a post & link back to the person who awarded you this award.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Award 10 recently discovered great bloggers.
4. Contact these bloggers and tell them they’ve won!
Here are my 7 random things:
- I hate talking on the phone. I avoid it whenever possible. My poor family has to email me or call my husband to pass info along to me.
- I have a HUGE cookbook collection, but I rarely cook from them. I just really enjoy reading them.
- I'm super clumsy. I fall all the time. In fact, I fell down the stairs just this morning. Thank God I didn't break anything this time.
- I can't work in silence. I need music playing or the tv on in order to concentrate.
- 6 months ago today I launched ecolissa.com which carries eco friendly and vegan clothing and accessories.
- I have never and will never live more than an hour away from my family.
- I'm a night owl and often stay up until 2 or 3 am before going to bed.
