Blog Hop: 3 Things You Didn't Know About Me

1. I follow a strict exercise regimen and a vegan diet.

Ha! Fooled ya! Actually I do enjoy exercising. For example, last night Elyse and I went on a nice 3 mile jog. The jog was fine. Pushing 30 pounds of baby and stroller was not so fine. But we managed to finish in 27 minutes with a pace of 9.10 minutes per mile. Not too bad. After we got home and put I Elyse to bed, I proceeded to have dinner. It was definitely not my healthiest choice ever. 2 bowls of Reese's ice cream with chocolate syrup. Followed up by a few handfuls of barbecue chips. I guess I felt I needed to make up for all those calories I had just burned.

2. I am an accomplished pianist.

Ha! Fooled you again! Didn't think you'd fall for it twice! When I was little my mom signed me up for all sorts of classes and lessons. Piano. Ballet. Gymnastics. Art. The list could go on and on. I was so super, super shy that I never wanted to participate in these activities. I would beg and cry, cry and beg and after forcing me to go for a few weeks my mom would eventually give up and let me stop. My poor, poor mother. All she wanted was for her baby girl to be involved in some activities. To have a well-rounded education. But I refused. It was just torture to me for some reason. Now, however, I have gotten over most of that shyness and do leave the house on occasion. :)

3. I have the most incredible family and friends ever!

On this one I am not joking. I am so blessed to have an amazing group of people in my life. I wouldn't trade them for anything. And even though sometimes I get caught up in wanting this pair of shoes. Or that pair of shoes. I know that the most important thing in my life is now what I have, but who I have. From my husband and kids. To my best friends I grew up with. To my friends I work with. I am truly blessed to be able to spend time with these people everyday. I don't know what I'd do without them.
