Factual Information.

14 Jul

Ok, friends. I lied to you. I didn’t post those random facts about myself last night. Instead I made the executive decision to drink wine with the husband and watch Pretty Little Liars. Again – I must have been under the influence to have watched yet another teen show. I really need a job. πŸ™‚

I’ll be posting all about my phone interview in a later update. But I’ll tell you this – it went as well as it could! I was prepared and really enjoyed talking with the recruiting coordinator. Deets to come! THANK YOU so much for the encouraging comments – y’all rock.

Onto The Fabulous Sugar Doll Blog Award – oooh la la – that sounds fun! I received it from Allison at One Day at a Time – thanks again!


I was explaining this “award” to the husband, and he seemed rather confused. Wanting to know why I had to post random facts about myself, how I got this, who gives them out. I think he thought it was like an actual award, so I said that posting the facts is like the acceptance speech. πŸ˜‰ Let’s roll with that…

I am going to make one minor change – I’m cutting it down to 5 facts. I feel that 10 is just way too many. And really, I’m not that interesting/cool, so you’ll thank me. πŸ™‚

1. I watch QVC. Now before you judge me, let me explain. My grandma lived on a farm and was the most fabulous person I’ve ever met. Always wearing sequin-studded blouses, bright red fingernail polish, piles of rings and bracelets. She LOVED QVC and ever since she passed away from colon cancer around 10 years ago, I’ve found myself gravitating toward that channel. I don’t buy anything, but it reminds me of her – and I like that.

2. I’m married to a genius. The husband is a real, live genius! He’s a super private person – that’s why you don’t know too much about him. But I’ll say this…he has an engineering background and designs medical devices – real ones that save people’s lives! He is inspiring, dedicated, passionate and unbelievably intelligent. He’s a cool nerd, don’t get me wrong. However, I’ve had my fair share of conversations revolving around thermodynamics, biosystems engineering, medical this, medical that and many other things that I don’t know how to explain, let alone spell/pronounce. He’s a catch. πŸ™‚

3. I’m a sorority girl. Obviously, not an active member now, just an old alum! The Greek system was very strong at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln where I attended for undergrad (Go Huskers!). I met so many people and was presented with many opportunities through my sorority. Having moved away from home right after college, I was lucky to connect with my sorority’s alum chapter out in Baltimore. It was a great way to meet people, and I’m looking forward to meeting other women from the Silicon Valley chapter when I move out to the bay area of California in the fall. Networking, people!

4. I have the biggest sweet tooth. Not even kidding. I was the kid that always ate too much candy and would end up with a stomach ache. Now that I think about, I still have those days. Only my tastes have sophisticated a little bit, and now I indulge in gourmet cupcakes, ice cream, truffles, baked goods, etc. Sweets make me happy!

5. I have a food blog. And unless you find it on your own, you’ll never know about it! πŸ™‚ I don’t mention that blog on this blog, or this blog on that blog. They are separate and meant for different audiences. A lot of family and friends follow my food blog, and I love having their support. Three Months is currently a way for me to share minor details of my life that only other lifestyle bloggers would understand. Make sense?!

So now I’m supposed to pass this along to other bloggers. However, I know that some people don’t get into this sort of thing, and I also can’t narrow down the field – I like too many of you! So let’s do this instead:

I’m giving all of you this award (congrats!)…now share two facts about yourself! Anything…anything at all!

    First, I want to thank the Academy.

    Too cute! And I am 90% sure my sweet tooth would destroy yours. There is no candy store I couldn’t clean out. Crap, I’m sounding like that’s something to be proud of, lol.

    Always fabulous knowing more about you.

    About moi: I shave my legs every day.

    Okay…seriously I watch QVC too! NO SHAME SISTER!!

  5. Katie @ Healthy Heddleston July 14, 2010 at 10:58 AM #

    hmmm… I can touch my tongue to my nose and make my tongue in the shape of a flower — ever see someone do that??

    my name is katie — not katherine, kathleen, or kaitlin. people should get over the fact that my birth certificate ACTUALLY says katie. ha, it’s funny.

    can I do a third? I feel the same way about my husband as you do yours — he’s getting his PhD in Cell Biology with a focus on glioma “stem cell like” cancer. It’s crazy. AND his undergrad was Biomedical Engineering. you just listen and nod your head and act like you understand it all πŸ™‚

    I’m looking forward to hearing how the interview went. I’ve always thought phone interviews are really hard, so it’s good that you think it went as well as it could have. You husband sounds great! Does he have a brother? <– Totally kidding! πŸ™‚ Fun facts:

    1. I play rugby. I have pink cleats and a pink mouth-guard.
    2. I'm a software engineer, so I work with mostly men. For my wardrobe choices I've declared Monday as skirt/dress day so that everyone is reminded that I'm a woman…and so I can wear all my cute dresses!

    I’m so curious about your food blog now! I combine my stuff into one: fitness, food and mamahood. πŸ™‚ I admire someone who can juggle a couple diff blogs at once.

    I so do not judge on the QVC thing. I’m a sucker for infomercials and I have been known to DVR some. πŸ™‚
