Who Me? A Stylish Blogger Award?

Please bear with me as I indulge myself in this post. I was graciously awarded a Stylish Blogger Award yesterday, thanks to Viv over at Adventures of Veganism in Midwestern America. What an Honor!!!

In order to fulfill the duties of this prestigious award I must:

1. Make a post & link back to the person who awarded me this award.

2. Share 7 things about myself.

3. Award 10 recently discovered great bloggers.

4. Contact these bloggers and tell them they’ve won!

Seven things about me:
1. I have a law degree from UCLA but I never took the bar exam.
2. After law school I became a full-time potter. My pottery career ended when I had my first child.
3. I was a vegetarian for 10 years for ethical reasons and didn't give a poop about my health.
4. I stopped being a vegetarian a year after we moved from Los Angeles to Cleveland because the smell of b-b-q'd ribs just wore me down.
5. I couldn't eat b-b-q'd ribs right now if you held a gun to my head (okay, that's a little bit of an exaggeration).
6. I was Indian in a former life.
7. I am actively involved in the study of Mussar, which is the study of traditional Jewish ethical and moral literature. It is a form of self-improvement.

And the next awards go to (my apologies if you have received this award in the past!):

Do you ever use what you learned from law in your everyday life?

Wendy (Healthy Girl) said...

Yes Kat, I do use what I learned in law school in my everyday life. Mostly, though, I learned how to think critically and not see the world as black and white but rather as shades of gray. The best thing that came out of law school was meeting my husband at a UCLA Law School party--but he wasn't in law school--he was just crashing the party!!!!

Did you see your award up there Kat?

Congrats Wendy! I think you are super stylish. I am honored to receive this award from you as well, though I doubt my ten facts will be nearly as interesting as yours.

PS your husband is obviously very smart to crash such a prestigious party.

Of course you're a stylish blogger! I knew that already ;) I had no idea you went to law school. I love how so many of us don't let our studies define who we can be. One more thing I like about you! :)

I thank you profusely for the award -- it may take a bit of time to post because I have a few things lined up on the blog...but I'll add this to the queue :)

Congrats and THANK YOU! Such fascinating info about you! I love that you don't say the typical crap - like "My friends and family mean a lot to me." Ha! Such an interesting lady you are! :)
