Hope you all had a fabulous weekend! I sure did, because two pretty awesome blog-type things happened:
1.) I was accepted as a Sweat Pink ambassador! It’s “where tough and girly come together at last” — so proud to be part of such an incredible movement.
As part of the award, I was asked to share 7 facts about myself. So, here it goes!
1.) I am obsessed with all things Disney. And have been since…well, forever.
2.) I have two businesses: I’m a freelance writer, but I also moonlight as a private piano teacher, which pretty much means I work all day long…but I love what I do, so it never feels like it! Plus, one of the best bonuses of being my own boss means I can lace up my sneakers and go for a run whenever I want…I got 8 miles in this afternoon!
3.) I LOVE to read…especially true crime. Ann Rule is my favorite. I do like fiction, too, and when I find an author I love, I have to read every. single. one. of their books, and have effectively done so with authors like Kristin Hannah, Jennifer Weiner, Emily Giffin…
5.) There is little that excites me more than scoring a good deal, whether it’s when I’m buying groceries or adding new tanks or capris to my endless workout wardrobe. I always know what’s on sale and where, and am never without a stack of coupons (or, of course, phone apps like Retail Me Not).
6.) I have a younger sister, and we used to hate each other…but now we’re BFFs. We are the absolute epitome of that thing moms always say to their kids when they’re fighting…you know, “someday you’ll appreciate each other.”
7.) I have had the same two favorite bands since I was 12 years old: Hanson and Third Eye Blind. I pretty much stalk them both whenever they’re in the tri-state area, so I’ve seem them in concert about a zillion times…in fact, I just scored tickets to Hanson‘s two-night event at Irving Plaza in NYC this summer! EXCITEMENT!
I also get to pass the award along to 15 of my favorite bloggers — fun! Here are just a few of the awesome bloggers I follow…it was SO hard to narrow it down!
6.) We Run Disney
9.) Road Runner Girl
11.) Run and Write
12.) Run Eat Repeat
14.) Live, Run, Grow
Here’s how it works:
