7 Degrees of Awe-summm

The fantastic & lovely Fidgeting Gidget tagged me as a fellow Queen of All Things Awe-summm. I love that it's AWE-SUMMM, not just "awesome" :)

The rules: List seven things that make me awe-summm and then pass the award on to seven other people who I think are fabulously awe-summm.

1: Fifteen months ago TODAY I gave birth to the cutest boy EVER! Here's proof -->

2: I speak fluent Spanish and learned it in one year while living as a volunteer in an orphanage in rural Mexico.

3: I was MVP of my softball team my Senior year of high school and continued to play until 3 years ago. I hope I get back to it too cuz I really miss playing.

4: I'm from Michigan. Go Wings!!

5: I have seen The Phantom of the Opera (the musical, NOT the movie!) 3 times and in 3 different cities; Toronto, Detroit & Tucson. Loved it EVERY time!

6: I've lived in every time zone (ETA: in the Continental US) except for the Pacific. Maybe I should move to CA to knock them all out?!?!

7: I have traveled alone to NYC two times and would go again tomorrow if I could.

Other totally awe-summmmmmm bloggers I know are:
1) Katie @ A Look Behind My Eyes
2) Rachel @ If Its a Hero You Want, I Can Save You
3) Sizzle @ Sizzle Says
4) April @ Thoughts In My Tumultous Brain
5) Moonjava @ Moonjava's Muse
6) Chele @ On the tip of my fingers
7) Cathy @ The Slop Chest - maybe she'll start blogging again!

I just randomly picked 7, but you're all pretty awe-summmmm. :)

That's a fun one!

I've been to Michigan quite a few times (my mom's family is from there:)

Perfect in the damn cold in the winter!

every time zone? how 'bout Hawai'i? ;o)

I saw the Phantom in London a while back (after having waited 10 yrs for a chance to see it!) and LUUUUUUUUVD it!

I knew I could come here and find someone who is not all smiles and bunches of joy when I need them to be in a funk just like me.

I just have to cuss. SSSSHHHHIIIIIITTTT.....

Ok...I had to get that out. I'm having the worst pre-mothers day in my freakin' life. Like how come the owner of the digital shopp where I sell my kits decided to give me the boot because of a lack of participation and because people are complaining that my stuff is too much like Ali's. O man...I am so hurt like dude....

Gaston Studio said...

Congrats on the Lemonade Stand award and your son is adorable!!!

Heidi Renée said...

Yes! Go Wings!

I've seen Phantom in Toronto, East Lansing (or maybe it was Detroit... can't remember), and London.

So clearly we have lots in common. :)

I have also seen The Phantom of the Opera 3 times on stage.

NYC - on Broadway

Funny I expected the Broadway show to be better somehow - it really wasn't - they were all equally fantastic. :)

Hey if you do go to NYC again let me know! I'll take the train down and meet you if I can! I love going to NYC.
