Tag…I’m It…

So, the other day as I am reading through my regular blogs I started reading Life, Really, and when I got to the end of the post and she tagged me with two great awards – I Dig Your Blog and The Versatile Blogger.

I feel so honored – thanks, Kathy!  So, now I get to tell you 10 fun facts about myself…

1.  I love dancing.  I started when I was three years old (officially) and haven’t stopped since.  To make sure I get a little fix each week I go to Zumba and shake it with all these lovely suburban wives – one of which I am not and most likely will never be (well, if I have anything to say about it – the suburban part, open to the wife part…).

2.  I think in lines of poetry, but then have to filter it to sound more normal so my friends don’t look at me like I am a crazy helpless romantic.  Trust me, I have given them straight stream line before and the eyes start rolling left and right.

3.  I also speak in sound effects from time to time.  My closest friends now know what I am saying – it never fails to impress me.

4.  I still have no idea what I want to be when I grow up.  I love fashion, but I am also loving working in the medical field (never thought I would utter those words).  How could we combine Carrie Bradshaw and Meredith Grey into one?!  One thing I do know, is I would like to live outside of the Midwest for at least awhile.

5.  I am obsessed with personality tests.  I am an INFJ.  I am a high DI on the disc profile.  My five strengths are Relator, Discipline, Intellection, Futuristic, and Learner in Strength Finders 2.0.  What are you?

6.  I want to go to Bali.  Better yet, I want to live in Bali for awhile at some point.  I joke about moving there whenever I feel like I need a break from reality.

7.  I am a vegetarian.  I do not like eating things with a face.  I also prefer organic and all natural.  Yup, basically a little hippie in that sense and I am completely okay with that.  I do not care if others eat meat though – to each their own.

8.  I love music SO much.  It is therapeutic for my soul.  I love discovering new artists, others sharing new artists with me, and especially supporting independent artists – thankfully, I live in a city that has a huge music scene so there are a lot of local artists, meaning concerts all the time.

9.  I look at the world and see how beautiful it is and think – dang, our Creator is an artist, and that makes me thankful to be created in the image of God.  Not sure where you stand with God, but I love Jesus.

10.  I am getting to know my mom for the first time in 16 years (long story – just know it is has had a happy ending) and it one of the most amazing gifts I have ever been given.  No matter how old I am and independent, I still love having my mom back.

So, some of these are deeper or heavier – but they are real.  Thought, you should get to see a more real side of me since we do have these lovely daily meetings.  And, as much as I love fashion, we all know it isn’t the only thing in life.

Now it is my turn to tag some of my lovely blogger friends that I find lovely and versatile and I completely dig…
