Okay .. so seven things about me .. little ol'me.. could I possibly come up with a list of seven things?! Well.. let's give this a shot..

1. I don't drink coffee and never have!! My idea of a good wake me up a cold glass of chocolate milk.. or hot chocolate on a cold day..

2. I miss Dawsons Creek and I'm sad that they don't even play the re-runs on tbs anymore! :(
ps- I would have totally picked Pacey too.. and if you don't know this reference ..just move to #3

3. I'm a Hallmark snob. I check for the crown when I get a card.. I'm sorry!! ..but it's true..

4. I'm always listening to Pandora Radio on my computer.. I love: Counting Crows, Pearl Jam, Tori Amos, Ray LaMontagne, John Mayer, Radiohead, David Grey, Damien Rice, Ryan Adams, Tool, Deftones, The Grateful Dead, ..and I'm lovin Camera Obscura .. + the occasional gangsta rap song or country song thrown in for good luck!

5. I love reading my horoscope and believe in physics .. I'm a Capricorn and my hubby is a Leo and my son is a Taurus..

6. I love a fresh pack of crayons.. oh the possibilities..

7. (same as carmens!) I want to have Pin-up-type pics taken of me once I reach goal and start to love what I look like on the outside..

Okay for my nominations.. in no real order..
She was one of the first blogs I started reading when I was considering having this WLS ..and with her humor and her ability to share the ups and downs.. I knew then .. that I would have the strength to do the same. Thanks so much Amy for all that you share with us .. and I hope you know how many people you've helped! Go Amy/Oprah!!
How can you not love her before/after pics! Her dedication to exercising and her cute choices in bathing suits! Another person that writes from the heart..

3. oh her being real is great for someone that's a few steps behind and wants to know what it's going to be like after surgery! the ups and downs!!

4. Oh yeah! We rock the same name (just spelled a pinch different) and we're both from the great state of Connecticut!! So yay us!!

5. Again with the same name thing!! Kristen's of the world!! We must band <---- ha ha ha together and win this chubby war!! And she is .. she's rockin it! I'm a new reader but I love reading your blog!!

6. One of my first 'followers' and she's getting so close that I check her blog almost everyday to see how she's doing!! Can't wait to hear all about the 'after'!!

7. Another one of the blogs I started out reading after Amy's and Gen's .. and she's a foodie! Loves good/quality food.. I love reading about her underground food clubs experiences and wish I could live that cool of a life in NYC!

I have almost 30ish blogs that I'm keeping up with right now and I love to 'get to know' all of us in our great bloggy community! And a big thank you to the handful of followers I have.. it's great to know I'm not alone in this!!
