An Award with Cupcakes!

I was a lucky gal to receive this award from Stephanie at Girls Just Wanna Go Run and Erika from Chasing My Monkeys 1 Mile at a Time.  But of course, being the prego chick that I am, all I saw was...cupcakes!  Yum!  Oh great.  I'll be right back...

...ok, back now withalittlefrostingonmyupperlip. 

This is how the award works:

#1. Answer this question: If you had the chance to go back and change one thing in your life, would you and what would it be?

#2. Pick 6 people and give them this award. Then inform them that they received an award.

#3. Thank the person who gave this award to you!

1.  I consider myself to be lucky and to have a pretty normal, low-key childhood.  The only "fighting" was between us three younger sisters, but that wasn't a big's normal.  My grades were good and I was plenty busy with extracurricular activities.  Never did any kind of illegal drug.  Was probably a goody-two-shoes and a nerd, but that's ok by me.  BUT, there is only one thing that I really do regret and I've always wondered if it could've changed anything...I wish that I would have gone back to the hospital the night my mum died.  I had planned on it, but I ended up falling asleep with her pillow (it was about 2am when I got home).  For some reason, I just regret not being there.  It probably wouldn't have changed the outcome, but it was something I've always wondered about.  
Sorry, this isn't meant to be a downer.  I just can't think of anything else I'd truly want to change from my past. (Aside from maybe that guy I kissed in high school with braces...)

2.  Now, I pass this award to:

H Love @ Keep On Keeping On

Holly @ Run Like the Wind (or Shuffle Like an Old Lady)

Liz @ Writing Mommy

Karrie @ Hello*Pretty

Genesis @ More Than Your Average Runner

Jeri @ JerBear Shares

3.  Thank you so much for thinking of me, Stephanie!  You are totally going to ROCK the Chicago Marathon next month! :)

And Erika, keep up your excellent training and you will no doubt be amazing at your first marathon in Long Beach!  :)

Now, I have to go find some real cupcakes...


  1. Whenever you share about your mom it always makes me want to hug you and makes me wonder if I could ever repair the relationship I have with my mom. Hugs to you girl! Hope you found that cupcake too!!! :)
