The Versatile Blogger

I was lucky enough to recieve the Versatile Blogger award from Heather over at Just a Colorado Gal. So without fruther ado we'll get on to it!

There are a few basic rules with this award:
1. You have to thank the giver, and provide a link to the post. Thanks a ton to Heather over at Just a Colorado Gal.
2. Share 7 random facts about yourself.
3. Award 15 other newly discovered blogs the same award (I changed this one up a little as you will see below.

So first up Random facts about myself:

1. I love Mexico. And I have a real fondness for the all inclusive resorts. I’ve been to Cabo San Lucas a couple of times, Mazatlan, Cancun a few times, Cozumel, Puerto Vallarta and Playa Del Carmen. I’m hoping to be able to take the boys again in the spring before Josh goes off to the Marines.

2. I’ve lived in/owned (ok not really the bank still owns it) my house for 20 years. That makes me feel really old.

3. The idea of a full marathon is starting to enter my head every once in awhile.

4. I can be pretty shy when in social situations where I don’t know many people.

5. I quit smoking 10 years ago, but when I’m in situations with smokers and alcohol I will smoke.

6. I’m not much of a housekeeper these days....I was never great, but at different times in my life I have been better. These days I would much rather go for a run/bike/swim/read blogs :) then sweep the floor or dust.

7. I pretty much only drink water or coffee. And I drink quite a bit of both. I drink hot water during the day when I’m trying not to drink so much coffee...that’s right just plain hot water. People at work finally stopped offering me tea bags and got used to the idea that I just want water.

Pretty boring stuff huh?

Well instead of tagging 15 new blogs I want to introduce some fellow Colorado Bloggers. Many of these you will already know. Some I've met and become friends with, some are new to me. Some like me are newer to exercise and some are fantastic athletes. The one thing they all have in common is we live in and enjoy this beautiful state of Colorado. So take a minute and check them out. And if I forgot someone or you have another Colorado blog I should check out, please let me know! So here we go in no particular order.

Love this idea!! But how am I supposed to get anything done tonight now that I have a bunch of new Colorado blogs to stalk??!

Jill said...

High Five to #6!!! And I have no excuse other than I really don't even care. :)

I didn't know you smoked - wow! I'm glad you quit and I hope don't do it any more!!!! (that's my mom voice yelling at you :)).

I've only been to Cancun with the family and to Cabo with some girlfriends. I think it's cool you want to take your boys there...that'd be a great trip they'd never forget!! FUN! Will you adopt me so I can go, too? :)

Um, I did this versatile thing-a-ma-gig many moons ago...do I have to do it again? I'll buy you some hot water if I can get out of it!! :) Ok, maybe I will.

The fact that you've been in the same house for 20 years now days is quite an accomplishment! Many folks can't say that.

Julie said...

I knew I liked you for a reason. We have A LOT in common!

I LOVE Mexico all-inclusives. I think it's the only way to go....been to Mayan Riviera and Cancun. One place even had a espresso machine! Thanks for including me!Let me know when you can come to the Arvada Running Club some Sunday as well!

Christi said...

Great post! I love Mexico well maybe I should say Cabo. I used to go every year with my girlfriend. Didn't go last year and I missed it so much!

Thanks for pointing out all the Colorado bloggers. I picked up some great new blogs to follow!

Have a great day girlie!

Beth said...

Hey girl, thanks so much for the shout out! I will now have more CO blogs to read, what a great idea =)

Aimee said...

Fun post!! I love your idea of tagging all CO bloggers! There are some on your list that I need to check out!

Um...my house is a mess! I'm not very good with housework either...especially when training is crazy!

These are always fun to read

THough I do not like going to Mexico

Molly said...

I love Mexico too, went to Moon Palace in Cancun for my honeymoon : )

Tara said...

Yay! I loved doing these things, thanks for tagging me.

I've been thinking about doing another marathon too. And then I change my mind and it just goes on and on.......maybe this spring.

I've only been to Cancun, but it was absolutely beautiful.

adena said...

Hiya! I'm back from 4 days away and virtually no cell service, scary. I am just catching up but as always I love learning fun stuff about you. I hate cleaning as well and funny, the thought of a marathon NEVER enters my head.

hahahah :-)
