Kindness all around

I have more San Francisco pictures coming, but first things first. So many amazing things going on around the blogs, but I think the best is Katie's Operation Chocolate-Covered Kindness! Click away on CCK to raise money for The Enough project!

Some contest love, if that's what you're looking for... lots of loot to celebrate An Apple A Day's Blogiversary, a chance to try Stogo (in NYC) from Gena, a tera's whey giveaway from The Healthy Everythingtarian, and if she wasn't already giving enough, Katie is also giving us a chance to pick our own prize!

~Phew~ I still feel very behind from all that's been going on the past few weeks, but hopefully I'll catch up :/ I also want to thank Brandi before I forget. She passed along an award to me! I was very excited to meet her (and her hubby Nick) this past weekend :) Hopefully we'll meet again soon!


Now for 7 things about me that come along with this...
1- I feel badly for crumbs. If I'm at home, I tend to eat the crumbs first so they don't feel bad ;)
2- I don't know how to dive, and I'm too scared to learn now.
3- I'm not a coffee drinker, and never have been. Tea, please!
4- Finding Nemo is one of my favorite movies :)
5- I was a Girl Scout, as a Brownie and Junior! Good ol' Troop 12, still friends with some of those gals!
6- My right foot is ~1/2 a size larger than my left. (how rude!)
7- I have a bad habit of cracking my knuckles. I used to be alot worse, now it usually only happens when I'm nervous.

To share the love... I'm passing the award on to Sarah, Kerstin, Kelly, Sabrina, Diana, Mary Kate, and Sagan. If you haven't checked out these lovely ladies, I encourage you to go do so now ;)

Thanks Shannon! I love your random fact, I'm going to have to think about what to write.

Your pictures of the minicupcakes is beautiful. I can still taste that pumpkin spice one...sooo good!
I made that pumpkin muffin recipe recently, I might need to make those as minis very soon.

Shannon, you're too cute. And I love Gena and her blog! When I finally make it back to the east coast, I'd love to do a whirlwind trip from Boston to New York to meet both of you. And oh, the food! There would have to be food involved in these trips :-)

Have a great weekend and get some rest.

Congrats on the award! That really must be hard finding shoes!

Fellow tea addict here :)

kitchenbelle said...

Shannon--you are so sweet! Thank you!!

Sagan said...

You're such a sweetheart! Thank you :)

I only ever drink tea too. And I also have a TERRIBLE habit of cracking one of my fingers (only one. It's weird). My foot isn't bigger than the other but my left leg is 3/4 inch longer than the other. I think we might be twins.

Sophia said...

Love Nemo too. And ARE YOU CRAZY you don't drink coffee?!! If you lived with me, I might get you to that habit! ;-)

I crack my knuckles, my neck, my back, my legs, well, every part of my joints.

Emily said...

Yay for Katie! And congrats on your award! :-)

Joanne said...

Love all of the shout-outs you've got going on and reading the 7 things about you. Can't wait to see those foodbuzz pictures!

Have a great weekend!

Erin of Care to Eat said...

That award is well deserved :) I love your sympathy toward crumbs. You have a big heart Shannon!

Adam said...

Congrats on the award, it looks really sharp!

So you have to buy shoes from two different boxes? Wow that's kinda interesting. Even more so when you can still kill triathlons :)
