Don't be backward about coming forward - Or, as others put it - I'm awesome!

So, I've been tagged not once, but twice (that I'm aware of!) as being a blogger that is awesome. As part of this, I'm supposed to state 7 reasons why I'm awesome, and here's where it gets a wee bit tricky!

This is hard for me, but I'll give it a shot since the others have already spit out their own reasons!

1. Well, let's start with the obvious. I'm dealing with cancer for the 2nd time in my life. And, I am 100% confident that I'll get through it. It's scary, but so are other things in life, and I've done okay so far!

2. I was smart enough in life to wait for my prince. I didn't marry until I was 38 years old and looking back, I am glad I waited. I found my soul mate, I found the man who loves me for being me, and I found the man that truly makes every day a joy. He is MY Prince of Denmark.

3. I have the guts to go just about anywhere. I grew up in upstate New York, I went to college in Michigan, I lived in NJ and worked in Manhattan, and then I moved across the country to Washington state. And then, as you already know, I packed up my world and moved halfway around the world to live in Denmark.

4. I can do a triple pirouette. Admittedly, not nearly with the same level of skill I once possessed, but I can still do it! So there's something you probably didn't know about me - I have a B.A. in Dance.

5. I was once given the nickname "Brit", which was the short way to call me Encyclopedia Britannica, because I can remember things and my head is full of all sorts of random facts and trivia. It comes in quite handy in my work as I'm often the go-to person for 'do you remember when we made this change and why?'.

6. I amuse people. In most situations, unless it's highly inappropriate, I try to make people laugh. I don't take things too seriously and I have fun with life. I credit my father for this trait! If a joke is to be found within a situation, I'm going to do my best to find it!

7. I make an awesome chocolate cheesecake, an awesome chocolate cake, and very tasty chocolate chip cookies (sensing a theme here!). I don't really like cooking, and therefore, haven't really tried to excel at it, but I can bake. And the chocolate cheesecake is my masterpiece!

So there you have it. Now, the real challenge is to attempt to find 7 bloggers that haven't yet been tagged by someone that I find awesome! If you've already been tagged - it's just more pressure on you to come through!

  1. All we need to read is number 1 and that is enough to make you more than awesome.....

    however, I think I need some proof of no. 7!!!

  2. I second Kelli!!!

  3. Yes, you're awesome because of number 1, but number 7 really clinches it for me!! I'm salivating over here...

  4. What, no awesome banner? I'll have to make up my own. Thank you for the tag, that was very awesome of you. Is the rule to find 7 people who aren't tagged yet OR 7 people who aren't tagged by someone awesome, i.e., if someone not-quite-awesome tagged them you can tag them again? ;-)

  5. I had a bit of a misplaced modifier in that last sentence. You have to tag 7 bloggers that you think are awesome. I was just trying to pick some folks that I didn't think had yet been tagged!

  6. I'm with Kelli! Number #1 makes you all kinds of awesome and I'd like to see some proof of #7! :-D

  7. I came back a second day to read the bits about the chocolate desserts. Cheesecake would be so amazing right now.

  8. I was going to make a chocolate cheesecake and when I reviewed my list of ingredients, I realized that I don't have everything that I need, and can't purchase what's missing. :(

    The missing ingredient - chocolate chips - and if you've attempted to bake cookies or anything else with the Danish version, you'll know it just doesn't work right! Kelli, however, has promised to solve this dilemma for me and is bringing me back some chocolate chips!
