Stylish Blogger Award!

I would like to give a huge shout out to http://umseti.blogspot.com
for this award.  I am new to the blog world and this made me feel special on a day that I needed something to cheer me up.  Thank you!
This award comes with some rules and I will try my best to adhere to them: 
Rule 1:  I am to acknowledge the blogger who gave me this award, and duly thank them, and list/link their blog and URL.  Done and done.
 
Rule 2:  I am to list seven things you may not know about me. This could be difficult, although really what do you know about me? Not much, as I just started blogging over the past weekend!

                          Seven Things You May Not Know About Me   


1.  I wanted to be a psychologist since I was eight years old, (thanks to the Bob Newhart show), but then I found out that you had to spend at least eight years in school and well, I am lazy, what can I say?  But I do have excellent listening skills and people do talk to me about their problems; I'm just not getting paid, feel free to call me Dr. Salmon ;-)


2.  I love movies!  I could watch movies all day every day for the rest of my life.  I love old Hepburn, Grant, Tracy movies very much.  I am also a sucker for the cheesy goodness of ate e's movies. Anything by John Hughes I can watch over and over again.  Why can't I get paid to watch movies?


3.  I have lost too many friends as a result of alcohol and drugs.  It is devastating to think about.  I used to drink more and do drugs every time I found out I lost another friend.  Three years ago, I lost two friends within two weeks of each other and I drank an ungodly amount of whiskey in those two weeks and did some other terrible things and I decided I had enough and quit all of it on August 30, 2008. 


4.  I love my friends like they are my family.  Friends are the family that you choose, and I have some really awesome ones.

5.  I have been running a restaurant/bar with my husband for the past eight years. It was a lot of fun in the beginning and don't get me wrong, it still has it's moments, but, the stress is outweighing the fun by a billion pounds right now. You will find out more about the past eight years as I keep reading and you keep writing... you should reverse that statement and it will make more sense!

6.  If it weren't for my sense of humor I would be in the "grin bin" or worse, by now.


7.  I am really quite shy.  Social situations give me anxiety (hence why I used to drink tons) and I go through horrible bouts of depression.


The third rule of accepting this stylish award is to share it with other bloggers who are starting out.  Fifteen, to be exact. I don't know if I know fifteen, I will try:

Ummm,  I'm so new to this that I am having a hard time finding new bloggers to share this with!! Any suggestions would be awesome! I will edit this blog when figure it out and share this award!!

Splendid then...

  1. Congrats on quitting drugs and alcohol, at least too much of either. One of my best friends runs a bar/restaurant in Manhattan with her boyfriend, and it is TOUGH. I know. Just breathe, and do your best! Good luck!

  2. Thank you! It's been such a tough winter this year - I breathe often, although I do catch myself holding my breath; which is funny and ridiculous! I can only focus on the day at hand, if I look ahead then I completely freak out!
