I received this award from Merveilleux. Thank you!

Seven random things about me that you might not know...

1. Some things I wanted to be when I grew up: ballerina, mom, pirate, Indian, doctor, explorer, Olympic silver medalist in backstroke, architect, archeologist, physical therapist, artist, and chef.

2. Not normally very talkative in class, I got in a little trouble in 9th grade history class when I made a snarky comment about the Bayeux Tapestry. I was trying to be funny for the benefit of the rest of the class. While I don't remember what I said, I will not forget about William the Conquerer and the Norman conquest of England. I've been to Normandy, but I've not confronted THE TAPESTRY in person. I should probably do that someday.

3. I can't diagram a sentence to save my life... I missed out on it as one of the schools started it after I'd left, while in the other school everyone had already been doing it for years.

4. I've won $500 on two separate occasions. The last time was ten years ago.

5. I home schooled for three (3) years. One of my sisters and I used to say we were in mariachi band and on the jumping team. We went to state two consecutive years... we were that good.

6. I didn't know I had curly hair until I was about 20. My hair was either too short or it was dried and brushed into a frizzy mess.

7. Neil Diamond is my nemesis.

I would like to pass this award on to: Jam Hands, Kitchen & Bakery, and mushitza.


  1. Natalie, thank you very much! It's a great honour for us :)
    You have a lovely blog!

  2. Okay, so about #1.
    I want to be a mom, Indian, doctor, and artist as well. But I got business and phone numbers.
    Some of us got better results.
    I digress.
    Why silver medalist? I never knew this. Why not go all the way with winning a gold?


    Lil' Sis
    P.S. I'm making a speech about my phone number/business success story in speech class.

    You know I'll get an A.

  3. Why didn't you want to be an Olympic gold medalist?

  4. Mushitza: You're welcome!

    Li'l Sis: Hey! I'm none of those things I wanted to be in that list.
    "Business" and number memorization have nothing to do with it, chai wallah.
    The silver medal decision was based to my liking the look of silver better than gold. You can still be near the top...
    Besides, after thinking about it, I believe being "gold" would be too much attention!
    And you obviously go with what you know.

  5. Funny that you wanted to be Indian, since I wanted to be Asian. Look at us, aspiring to other ethnicities. Amazing.

    And our 9th grade history teacher did love that Bayeux Tapestry.

  6. Sounds like lots'a good cooking to me -----but I like to work in the yard!!!!& COME IN & EAT A SANDWICH
