The Stylish Blogger Award

Thanks to Chelsea at Early Runner for awarding me The Stylish Blogger Award.

Here is how the Award works:
  • Make a post + Link back to the person who awarded you this award (done above)
  • Share 7 things about yourself
  • Award 15 recently discovered great bloggers so we can share the love
  • Contact these bloggers and tell them they’ve won

OK here goes - 7 (hopefully) interesting things about myself.

1.  I was the drum major of my high school band (and can still twirl a baton) and was a "Flag Chick" (that is really what we were called) in college.  I started college as a Music Major (and still play my clarinet) and then switched in my Junior year to Accounting.  

2.  I used to race radio control trucks and sedans - 10th scale - We all had our own trucks and sedans and raced under the name - Team Radio Schaack.  

3.  I love to head out on the lake on windy days with the Jet Ski's and can pretty much keep up with the guys in the family.  

4.  I make a really good Long Island Iced Tea - but usually only make them in the summer.

5.  I am trying to embrace a more minimalistic lifestyle - I know I can't go all the way, or don't actually want to - but I do want to minimize. 

6.  In my house right now - we have 2 MacBook pro's, 2 iMac's and 1 Macbook, and 3 Motorola Droid's and my work Blackberry.  To say that we are internet connected is an understatement.  See item 5!!!! 

7.  I love to have polish on my toes - but HATE it on my finger nails.  But I have never had a professional pedicure - letting other people touch my feet freaks me out.  

Bonus # 8:  I love Housewives of . . . . Beverly Hills / that is my secret!  Don't tell!  

I will follow Chelsea and simply award 7 people.  
Heather at Run O'Donnell
Erika at MCM Mama

Next up is to contact everyone on my list and let them know that they have been tagged!

Have a great day
Peace and JOY


  1. I love these kind of posts! It is so fun getting to know other bloggers through tags with random info:)

    I wish I knew how to work a baton and I was super jealous of our flag chicks in high school:)

    I had a really bad experience with Long Island Tea in college. It was so terrible that I can't even look at a Long Island drink anymore:)

    Thanks for the tag! Take care and hugs to you!

  2. Thanks for thinking of me Linda :) I'll fulfill my duty over the weekend ;)

    Always nice to get to know you better...I especially like your #5 and #6 :)

  3. I am new here and am learning so much. Your journey inspires me as I am currently undergoing chemo while keeping my running up. Thank you!

  4. Hey, thanks for tagging me! I was so happy for you when I read your comment regarding your last doctor appointment. YEAH!!! That is wonderful!! I love your list, too. I was also an accounting major. Thanks for tagging me- I'll have to work on my post!

  5. Hi Linda, thanks for the tag. Now instead of obsessing over polluting the planet with my skiing (my latest post explains it all) I will be thinking of what to write. Certainly more fun.
    Could you post some video clips of you playing a clarinet? (You doing accounting would not be as much fun)

  6. Thanks for the tag! I'm trying to come up with something interesting LOL>

  7. Congrats! What a cute idea! :0)

  8. Great list!

    I stopped by from Tall Mom's 1,000+++ Mile Club - had to swing by the other WI peeps aiming for 1,000 miles this year.
