awwww, you shouldn't have!

Haha, so this is cheeezzy, but I'm kind of excited because I got nominated for my first award! One of my dear friends, Erin at C'est La Vie, nominated me for the Master of Karate and Friendship award! Karate and friendship - 2 things I love!

The Rules:
1. List 6 things you are a master in.
2. Pass it on the 6 bloggers you think are masters at friendship, and make blogging so awesome!

I am a master in/at:
1. Disney Scene It. Yup. Watch out, not only did I spend countless hours of my childhood watching every Disney I could get my hands on, I am good at the newer movies too because I have a sister 9 years younger than me and spent highschool and college babysitting/nannying. Don't challenge me, cuz you'll most likely lose.

2. Making guacamole. Thanks to my dad, who loves guacamole, I learned at a very young age the basics to making a great guac dip. The key is the perfect ripeness of an avocado, and I always change it up by adding something like garlic, cilantro, green onions, hot sauce...whatever I think sounds yummy! Come on over and I'll whip you up a bowl! 

3.  Saying what I think. Definitely a master at this! For better or for worse, if you are being offensive, I will speak up. And maybe offend you in turn! haha. Sometimes I need to keep my mouth shut, but I am compelled to say something when people are putting down anyone based on race or sexual preference or anything like that. Take it or leave it, I am opinionated. 

4. Hanging out in the sunshine. I am such a better puppy mommy when it's warm outside! Dog park visits daily, runs in the morning, walks after dinner...haha. I LOVE the sun. I have gotten much better in recent years with the sunscreen factor, because I really don't want to resemble an old leather purse when I'm older. It's just that I love the feeling of sun warming my skin, and I love the look of a little tan...*sigh* I'm hopeless. And Tyler just got done with his dermatology unit in med you can bet that I get an earful when I sit out in the sun!

5. Doing my job. Honestly, I am so detail oriented, and I want to please whoever I am supposed to please in a work setting, that I never have felt like I wasn't a valuable asset to wherever I worked. Okay, well maybe that's not all true. Once I started dreading the customer interaction blah blah fake smiles, I quit my job in retail :) Because it was no longer a mutually beneficial job. 

6. Being creative. Whether it's making up a game to entertain a child, gathering odd ingredients to make a casserole, or turning the old junk into something new and pretty...I like to have a little challenge and face it with some creativity! 

Now for my nominees:
1. Sarah at Starting Now: Reflections on Life
2. Lindsey at They Call Me Pro
3. Jody at My Life
4. Whitney at Dining on Mom's Dollar
5. Caitlin at Love Life
6. Natalie at Extraordinary Love
