Stylish Blogger Award

Two people recently nominated me for the Stylish Blogger Award! I would like to thank my friends Kristi and Christina for nominating me for the Stylish Blogger Award. I am supposed to tell you 7 things you may not know about me, and pass it along.

I don’t know who to pass it on to yet, but I will do that another time, but for now, here are my answers:

1. I had my first cup of coffee at age 41! I always tried a sip, but never liked it until one day at my office I tried it again and I LOVED it! Now, 2 years later I have one cup per day.

2. If I microwave something, I always stop the microwave at 1 second left. Don’t ask me why, that’s how I roll.

3. Growing up, my brother, sister and I were great friends since we were kids and never fight. In fact when we are all together we laugh and laugh!

4. I finally got my associates degree a year ago! I took time off when I started having kids and when I finally decided to finish, I only had 4 credits left.

5. I entered the Pillsbury Bake Off almost every year when I was a kid. Our grandma lived with us for a while and she loved that contest. I only submitted cookie recipes, I just would change up the recipes and add different stuff.

6. My sister and I have best friends who are twins who we met in 3rd grade and we are still friends all these years later!

7. My husband and I went to the same high school, (graduated different years) and grew up less than 2 miles from each other our whole lives and I never met him until I was 25 and he was 31!

So, that’s a little more about me! Interesting stuff huh? 🙂


I actually wanted to share one other thing with you today. Andrea Beaman posted a great quote on FaceBook that Jack LaLanne (who just passed away at the age of 96) had said. I never heard this before, but it is very motivating:

“Exercise is king. Nutrition is queen. Put them together and you’ve got a kingdom.”
— Jack Lalanne

I was really tired after work and didn’t want to walk home, but then I thought about that quote. I had eaten great, kept within my calories, and I decided I wanted the Kingdom, so I walked. I was happy I did too!

By the way, does anyone have the Jack Lalanne juicer and if so, did you like it? I have an old juicer (different brand), but you practically have to put in 8 carrots and 6 apples to get 1/2 a cup of juice. And there is a ton of pulp leftover.

Let me know your thought on that. 🙂

Have a great day everyone!

    It makes total sense that you have entered the bake off since you were a kid – no wonder you are so comfortable with trying out so many ways of baking things!

    Fun facts – the microwave thing cracks me up!

  2. Roz says:

    Hi Jenn, I love getting to know my favorite bloggers better. Have a great week.

  3. Brittany says:

    Love the quote! #2 is hilarious!

  4. Nomi says:

    We’ve never met, but I would happily nominate this blog for several awards.

    I have recently found a Rhode Island based food blog which you might like.

    Thanks for sharing those facts and the Jack L. quote…

  5. Kristi says:

    I have a Jack Lalanne juicer. I actually really like. I go through phases with it. Sometimes I use it all the time, and other times it sits in my counter. I love it though. I can put 2 carrots in and an apple and have a cup full of juice.

  6. I like that Jack Lelane quote! but I would argue that nutrition is the king and exercise is the queen! lol

  7. Errign says:

    I am not a coffee fan, which is funny since I work part time as a barista!

  8. Deb says:

    Jenn, I loved this — the microwave thing makes me laugh. I think I knew all the rest but still enjoyed reading it. Now how do we vote for your blog for the Stylish Blogger Award? Girl you gotta win that
    : )

  9. I liked reading about your life, your words made me smile :). Have a great weekend! Miriam@Meatless Meals For Meat Eaters
