Pass it On, Versatile Blogger!

After a long, frustrating day of research last week,
I was delighted to find comments of encouragement right here on my blog.
Just like a football team needs cute cheerleaders on the sidelines,
sometimes I think I need some people on the sidelines of my life--
cheering me on.
{But don't worry. I won't make you wear a uniform ;) }
Can I just say that my 16 followers are the sweetest you will ever find?
And ya hear that?
Only 14 more to go and I shall be giving a fabulous necklace away to one of YOU!

But as I was starting to feel much better about my stressful day,
I soon discovered something else that brought a smile to my face.
Laura, over at Fall in Love,
awarded me with the Versatile Blogger Award.
Thanks, girl!

To be perfectly honest, I didn't even know fun little
blogging awards existed.
{Give me a break. I'm the new girl!}
So here is the deal, I must now spill 7 tid-bits about myself.
{I know you are just dying to hear them}
Then, I must pass on this lovely award to
15 blogs that I have either recently started following or
just love in general.

Here we go!
1.) I love running! It is the ultimate stress-reliever.
I would be one crabby Amanda if I lost my ability to run.
My celebration of National Running Day in June
2.) I would go crazy if I weren't organized.
My closet is even color-coded.

3.) I would love to learn to cook well...and enjoy the process
(This is a work in progress)
Ohh just sipping Sparkling Grapefruit Juice and
wishing I really knew how to cook

4.) My guilty pleasure is peanut butter
(I eat it by the spoonfu!l)

5.) I am a Dietetics student and my dream job would be to own my own business,
where I serve as both a personal trainer and dietitian--a life coach of sorts!

6.) I am terrible on keeping up with current events since graduating from high school
(My debate coach would be so ashamed!!)
In my defense, I haven't consistently had cable
since my senior year of high school

7.) Money is a huge cause of stress in my life.
I have yet to take out a student loan
(thanks to generous scholarships),
but I may just have a heart attack the day it is a necessity to take one out!

 So there you have it!
I am a pretty boring 20-year old girl.
I probably should have warned you of that before you proceeded to read this post.
Ahh well.

Now it is time to pass on the torch
by selecting 15 bloggers to participate in the Versatile Blogger Award.
