Blogging Awards

I have never been nominated for a blogging award.  I don’t check my grammar, I don’t really spell proof besides the button at the top that does the basic misspelling check, and I don’t know if everyone can read my sarcasm through the web so I’m not sure if my humour is even funny. Not that I”m always trying to be funny.  Anyways now I’m off topic.  Journey to Awesomehood nominated me for the liebster blog award, and I’d love to give a big shout out to her for it! Check out her blog as well, she’s just had a major surgery and is unable to work out (scary thought) and is still super positive about the situation! very inspirational!

I do love to talk about myself, but coming up with 11 Facts about myself was harder than I thought.

11 Facts About Yourself

1. I am 5’3 but I always say I’m 5’4.

2. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Child and Youth Care

3. I have been working as a Child and Youth Care Practitioner for 8 years

4. I have dislocated my right shoulder twice.  Once in dance class in grade 10.  A girl flipped me doing the jive and landed only on my shoulder.  the second time was 2 years ago a girl tripped me during a ball hockey game and I just landed wrong.

5. I call my mom almost every day.  She lives 3 hours away. If I don’t call her that often I spend about 3 hours on the phone talking to her when I do.

6. I’m easy-going yet a type A control freak about certain things, such as having a clean house.  I don’t have kids ye,t so I haven’t had to struggle with having toyed up dirty house.

7. I ran 2 half marathons this year! My very first one was in Canmore, AB with my girlfriend Jill (who I will be blogging with again in the next few weeks from JillandNikkidowork) and the second I ran alone, which I never thought I would be able to do!

8. I love cooking.  I find it relaxing and fun.  I love when I can cook a good meal for friends and family.

9.  I have 2 cats.  They are brothers from the same litter and look nothing alike, seems their mother was promiscuous, but that’s  not about me, they make me laugh daily, also I can now understand why there are crazy cat ladies out there, if I was allowed I would own 10 cats.

10.  I am getting married on April 3, 2013 in Mexico!

11. I worked at a summer camp for 8 years, at this camp all the staff have nature names, so many of my friends still refer to me as Sky instead of Nikki.
