Who's calling me F-A-T?

Tracey@ Tales of Little Bitty that's who! But, it's not what you might think. Tracey is a dear friend of mine from my Gainesville, Florida days {Go Gators!}. She has been sweet enough to pass along the Versatile Blogger award, which means she thinks I'm Flexible, Adaptable, and Talented. Pretty nifty, huh?


Now here are the rules:

1. Thank the person that gave you this award.

Thank ya kindly, Tracey!

2. Share 7 things about yourself.

It just keeps getting harder and harder to come up with things that I haven't mentioned before. Honestly, I'm just not that interesting so here goes nothing...

  • We are horrible Netflix customers. Bret and I are really bad about getting a movie from Netflix and letting it sit for months before we actually find time to watch it.

  • I'm a Twilighter, albeit a little late in the game, but a Twilighter nevertheless. Just a few weeks ago we sat down to watch Twilight for the first time. I mean it's only been out for how long and I'm only now watching it? {Told you we were bad Netflix customers.} Is it weird to wish that the Cullens had gone to my high school? One thing's for certain, it sure would've made sitting through AP Biology a lot more entertaining! I can't wait for the next movie in the saga to be released later this summer. Until then, you'll find me hidden behind Eclipse poolside. Pale skin may be becoming on a vampire, but this girl needs a tan!

  • I enjoy reading magazines. With the attention span of a gnat, I need short spurts of information and lots of pictures. Out of my subscriptions---Real Simple, Rachael Ray, Southern Living, Coastal Living, a local society mag, and Us ---any guesses as to which is my favorite? Well, Us Magazine of course! The pictures alone are worth the cover price and with all the vital information I learn from its pages, well...let's just say I could host my own show on E!

  • I talk to my mom at least five times a day! Excessive I know, but with most of my friends at work during the day, I've got to have someone to call when GG has a mega blowout, shoots Cheerios out of her nose, or says a new word! Plus, Mom is my bestie!

  • Roller-blading, smoller-blading, nah-uh! After a nearly catastrophic incident my junior year of college where I almost got a little too personal with a large brick planter outside the stadium, I've never quite recovered. It may be great exercise, but you won't ever find me with wheels where tennis shoes should be.

  • Re-runs don't bother me, but Lord forbid that someone repeat something they've already told me, I'll go nuts! Don't ask, you just can't explain crazy.

  • I cannot sleep well without a ceiling fan. Don't tell Al Gore {you know excessive consumption, global warming, and all}, but even in the middle of winter with the heat blasting I have to sleep with the ceiling fan running. I don't know if it's the breeze, white noise, or a combination of both, but I never have a restful night's sleep without the ceiling fan whirling.

    3. Pass the award along to bloggers who you have recently discovered and think are fantastic!

    4. Contact the bloggers you've picked and let them know about the award.

    Now, that's a wrap. I've finally finished all my awards posts. Yay!

    I always love discovering new blogs. If you'd like, leave a comment telling me about your favorite F-A-T {Flexible, Adaptable, and Talented} bloggers and feel free to pass along the award!
