7 things

Thank you Kelly for this "award". It is my very first. And, this is the first image I've pasted into my blog. I admire all you ladies who put up fun pictures and stuff. I need to do more of that. Anyway, here are 7 things about me:

1. I love triathlons and have done a couple half-ironmans, the Escape from Alcatraz triathlon (3 times) and some others. I've tried to pull back in recent years given our IF struggles but I sneak one in each year!

2. I am the only child of two PhD's in chemistry. Nerds. I stayed away from science but opted for finance which is pretty nerdy too. I wish I had a more creative/artistic side.

3. I don't normally wear thong underwear but have found a recent soft spot for hanky pankies.

4. I hate eggs and always have. Actually, I don't really like pancakes, waffles, french toast or pastries either. On the other hand, I will happily eat italian, mexican or chinese food for breakfast.

5. I want to come back in my next life as an amazing singer (preferably a fertile one). I want to belt it out and move people to tears!

6. My husband is from Minnesota and plays ice hockey once a week. I am still trying to figure out the rules of ice hockey.

7. We went to Buenos Aires and Patagonia in February. Steak, wine, river rafting, lakes, mountains, sleep........I cried (literally) when I left.

I'm not good at "chain letters"! But, pass it on to Melissa, Cathy and hope4joy.

I hope everyone is doing well. I feel like it's been a rough week for a lot of people.



  1. That's funny about your penchant for dinner food at breakfast! I used to crave that stuff after a night out (i.e. hangover food), but since TTC got serious for us, I don't have too many of those nights anymore!

    My husband and I are dying to go to Argentina and Chile - he wants to plan a trip, but I'm so focused on fertility stuff I don't want a trip to interfere. We shall see...

    PS Love hanky panky - the BEST!

  2. Awww shucks, thanks for the award!

    And I am totally with you on #5. I have such a terible singing voice. I actually consider it a public service to lip sync Happy Birthday...

  3. I'm glad you enjoyed the "award"! It was nice to get to know you a little better!

  4. I hate breakfast foods too. Just give me a slice of pizza, and I'll be your new BFF.
