Blog Awards and Stupid Human Tricks

Happy Monday! (As happy as a Monday can be.) I hope you all had a great weekend! I was honored to receive a couple of Blog Awards last week. First I want to thank the lovely aspiring make-up artist behind Funny Face Beauty for awarding me the Sunshine Blog Award.


My second thank you goes to the talented photographer Snappy Q for awarding me the Versatile Blogger Award.


In order to receive this award I'm supposed to list 7 random facts about me so here goes. I  used images 'cause that's how I roll.
 1. I’m a terrible, terrible cook although I can make a mean-ass salad ; ) When I moved in with D. my best friends presented me with a copy of "The Rookie Cookbook" which I will crack open soon. Maybe. No, just kidding, I do want to learn ; ).


2. I can flip a coin from heads to tails on my stomach using my ab muscles and nothing else. This is just one of many useless and stupid human tricks I can do. ***Please let me know what stupid human tricks you can do in the comment section below, I'd love to hear!***

3. I don’t eat anything that has a face. I just can't do it. (photo via Cafe Bellini)

 4. One of my favorite things to do is to go to the movies with my girlfriends and eat a huge bag of extra-buttery popcorn.


5. When I was four, my brother burnt my face by accident with a marshmallow that was on fire. It left blisters but luckily no scars!


 6. I am a Reality Television junkie and watch waaaaaay too many reality shows: So You Think You Can Dance, Dancing With the Stars, Teen Mom, The Real World, Jersey Shore, The Bachelor series…these are my guilty pleasures ; )


7. I am a recovering D.P.A. That's Diet Pepsi Addict. I decided to quit aspartame a couple of weeks ago because of what I think it's doing to my stomach.. It's been soooo hard! I used to drink 3 cans a day. (I know - BRUTAL.) I can't seem to find a low-calorie, refreshing, non-chemically enhanced drink besides water to replace it with. But my tummy is doing better so that's a plus.

I'm supposed to pass on these awards to some of my favorite blogs but I'm going to be B.A.D. and pass it on to ALL of you because really, how can I choose? So I apologize for being "That Girl" who doesn't play by the rules but I hope you understand why. I don't want to leave anyone out.

Please please please make a video of you tossing a coin on your abs. That has to be the coolest trick I've ever heard of.

City Cinderella said...

girl you gotta get ZEVIA. It's a soda pop flavoured with Stevia. You can buy it at planet organic and probably online too for cheaper. The black cherry is my fave.
Aspartame is the devil!! But I definitely understand your pain...

Pop Champagne said...

FunnyFaceBeauty said...

Love the picture. I am the biggest reality junkie!! I also haven't eaten anything with a face in 16 years (that pig is so cute...who would want to eat him?)
I finally posted my 300 subscribers giveaway. If you get a chance, check it out.

Lena: I can't actually toss the coin up in the air, I can flip it from heads to tails while it's on my stomach, sorry if I was deceiving!

City Cinderella: THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for the suggestion! I'm going to try it!

I too am a DPA as well. Love it a bit too much and it's the only thing I drink other than water. I try to limit myself to no more than one case/month at home.

I don't cook at all! I would be perfectly happy to live on microwave dinners and canned tuna for the rest of my life, but Ryan LOVES cooking, so I get to eat all of his good meals without putting in any work.
Awww, that piggy was so cute, makes me reconsider eating anything with a face too!
I LOVE Jersey Shore, I actually just recently got into it, and it's such a guilty pleasure.
AND I also drink 3 cans of diet coke a day :*( ... Can't help it. Good for you for giving it up!

StyleFrost said...

Wow, can you really toss a coin on your abs, amazing! I love reality shows too! x

That quater trick is pretty awesome.
I don't think I can top that- What flare my nostrils- I can do that.

I can't stop watching Jersey Shore-We don't have cable because we used to watch too much TV and now my hubs and I watch JS on Hulu- it's pretty much the only TV I watch.

Nice to meet you- I'm loving your blog.
