4. Thank the person who nominated you and add a short blurb about them.

5. Inform the nominees by posting on their blogs

I am very honored to have received this award from Kwizgiver over at 'What if this is as good as it gets'.  I have loved getting to know her through all of our challenges together.  I totally believe we could laugh together for hours on end.  She could try to teach me to knit and I will hope to not fail horribly.  The way she describes the relationship she has with her students is amazing to me.  She is definitely making a positive impact on youth of today.  I only wish I lived closer so my daughter could have her for a teacher.  I can't wait to continue to learn more about her.  

Seven things about me? 

1.  I cannot do the Vulcan salute.  I don't have a very good finger spread.  
2.  I am in the process of enrolling to go back to school.  I am thinking professional student.  I love learning.  

3.  I desperately want to live in New York for a couple of years to experience all it has to offer.  I have already picked out my brownstone in Brooklyn (anyone have $15 million I could have).  

4.  I love watching documentaries about anything Disney.  Last challenge, I should have picked Walt Disney as the person I wanted to spend the day with.  Can I have a do-over!

5.  I have become more passionate about my photography lately.  I think it is because of all of the challenges.

6.  Hi, my name is Cristy.  I have become a movie theater junkie this summer.  I have seen more movies in the theater this summer, than I saw all last year.  I think it is because they are showing classic movies.  This summer I have seen Grease (love), Back to the Future (the whole family loved), Animal House (I could have done without this one, but glad I have finally seen it), American Graffiti (loved, I love the soundtrack too), and this week is Ghostbusters.  I am taking Elexis to see this too.  Next week is the final week and it is Dirty Dancing, the first movie I ever saw in a theater without my parents.  

7.  I love home improvement stores.  I love wandering the aisles of Lowe's and Home Depot and even the local lumber store.  So many possibilities and I love the smell of the lumber section.  

People I want to nominate are (yes, some of you have already been nominated, but I don't care I love your blogs):

I love you girls.  And a big thank you again to Allison for this award.  


  1. I love you for nominating me and I graciously accept if you will understand that I cannot come up with 7 more things to tell you all about myself at this moment! What are you enrolling in????

  2. I didn't want you to have to do it again. Between all the challenges, I think you guys know more about me than my own family sometimes. haha. I was pretty tapped out on my 7 facts. I am either thinking graphic design or architecture. Both I have strong passions for and it accentuates my photography.

  3. I too would love to live in New York city for at least a year or so, I guess from all the movies and TV shows that place just looks like such an exciting place!

  4. Aw! *tacklehugs* Thanks for the nomination! ^_^ Also, I love how to asked for $15million to HAVE and not BORROW. lol Gutsy move.
