An award for ME??!?

The FABULOUS Nikki at The Worth of My Sole tagged me for an Amazing Blogger Award!  How sweet is she??  If you haven't visited Nikki's blog yet, what are you waiting for?  She is an inspirational runner and has an infectiously positive attitude!  Not only that, but she somehow manages to find time to run AND raise her kiddos!  I am always unbelieveably impressed by runner moms.  I cannot even imagine the great balancing act that is involved in that!  ANYWAYS, thanks Nikki!  I think YOU are awesome TOO!

My Favorite Cartoon Character
Belle!  (Don't you just love this runner Belle cartoon??)

My Favorite Thing to Photograph
I'm not a HUGE picture taker, but I love taking pictures of and with my friends. :)  
This one is circa 2006 and taken in the mirror at IKEA...can you say CLASSY?

My Favorite Thing to Cook
Cook?  Who me???  The truth is, I really hate cooking.  When I do cook, though, my favorite thing to make is a really simple omelet with salsa.  YUM!  
(No, I did not cook THIS omelet...mine definitely don't look this pretty!)

My Favorite Exercise

My Favorite Movie
Hands down The Shawshank Redemption.
I find I am so excited I can barely sit still or hold a thought in my head. I think it is the excitement only a free man can feel, a free man at the start of a long journey whose conclusion is uncertain... I hope I can make it across the border. I hope to see my friend and shake his hand. I hope the Pacific is as blue as it has been in my dreams. I hope.

My Favorite Article of Clothing
It may be boring, but I love a good cotton v-neck tshirt.  Hey, I never said I was a stylish teacher-runner!  (At least I'm not wearing the denim jumper and ABC vest...yet...) ;)

My Favorite Flower
Love. Daisies. :)

My Favorite Breakfast
Blueberry Pancakes

My Favorite Book I've Read Recently
Just finished reading Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer last week and loved it.  Powerful, horrifying, and beautiful all at once.  If you are interested in learning more about the meat industry and factory farming in the United States, or feel like educating yourself about the meat and egg industries, this is the book for you.

My Favorite Place to Be

A tie between running at my favorite forest preserve and laying on the beach with a book.

And one of my choice: My Favorite Candy
M&Ms!  Peanut, Plain, Pretzel, Peanut Butter, YOU NAME IT!

Now, I'm tagging 5 other Amazing Bloggers!  Check out their fabulous sites!
Vanessa @ Gourmet Runner (Just started reading her blog, and LOVE it already!)
