A Mario Update... Plus Some Random Facts

>> 11.20.2009

May I just say that you all are awesome? I really appreciated all of the helpful comments and suggestions about my painting dilemma from yesterday's post! I was really worried about losing my 'thrifty cred' by hiring out some of the painting work to Mario. It's such a relief to know that I have your support in doing so :). As I mentioned in the comments, I think I'm going to try my boyfriend's suggestion of doing one more big push this weekend and then hiring out the rest of the work (oh, and he offered to help!).

In other news, I'm happy to have been awarded two new blog awards this week from my friends at Bromeliad (don't miss her DIY Wednesday posts!) and Chicago Girl Gone Mild (I'm beyond jealous of that awesome city she lives in).

Let's get random:
*My biggest fear? Swimming with whales. I know, I live in Central Texas and probably won’t come across any whales in the near future… but that doesn’t stop them from haunting me in my dreams. Seriously, I'd rather swim with sharks. This really makes zero sense.
*I run a couple of hours each Saturday morning then I follow that up with extreme exhaustion and sore muscles for the rest of the day.... and I do it for fun.
*I live within a few miles of my parents. Our dogs have playdates.
*Speaking of living, my boyfriend will be moving in within the next month. This will be my first time to live with someone that I'm in a relationship with! And yes, I will be collecting rent from him ;).
*Officially, the farthest I've been out of town this year was on a day trip to Waxahachie, Texas (2.5 hours away).
*While this year was somewhat uneventful travel-wise, I was actually a pretty cultured kid. I like to say that I "studied abroad" in Kindergarten when I lived in England while my dad was on a business assignment.
*The boyfriend and I are pretty Lady Gaga obsessed. We were singing Bad Romance at the tops of our lungs last night in the car.
*My average bedtime is 9:45. I'd take a sunrise over a sunset any day.
If you're really into random facts (or me) here's my last random list.

I should be linking to the blogs, but with a brand new blogroll, I can't just pick a few to showcase! Please check out all (or at least some) of the bloggers I've added ! For friends that missed out, the comments on this post are still open...

I used to dream about being stuck in a huge aquarium tank of some kind with a hungry shark... not fun. but a whale, interesting! you should check a dream book and see what the "experts" think it means?
