Summer Blog Challenge -- playing catch up.

Here's some random posts for catching up on the blog challenge!

June 15-- Post a photo you took that you're proud of.

Here's one I recently took during our family vacation (I take a lot of photos!)

I like this one because it's an action shot showing my daughter having fun, with the water shining in the background.  She was fearful about swimming out to the swimdock when we first got to the lake, so this shows what she overcame.  Plus, this image just means "Summer" to me.  I grew up doing this kind of stuff.
June 16--Fitness guru or couch potato? Talk about your fitness habits.

Or? The answer there is NO.  Neither, than you very much.  I don't watch much TV, but I don't crave the treadmill either.  I'm a big fan of yoga, and I have a few choice shows I watch.  I personally think moderation is best in all things.

June 17--3 things you are proud of about your personality.

I recently completed a leadership training at work, and we had to complete a little "values" activity.  Basically, we had to rank what things we value the most. My top three were Family, Integrity and Knowledge. I think those three values also reflect my personality, and my strengths.  I think anyone who knows me would agree.  By the way... I'm quite inclusive on what "family" means.  I have quite a few friends that are "family" to me.

June 20--Photo of you as a young child.

I'm the one with the glasses (I was a nerd even then!).  This is a picture of my cousins, brothers, and myself.  We took a "cousins" picture ever year for a few years.

June 21--Most recent words of wisdom you heard that stuck with you

Here's something from Pinterest.  Sometimes children have the best wisdom.

June 22-- When I was a kid, what did I want to be when I grew up?

I wanted to be a teacher when I was a kid, probably because those were the smartest people around me (from a kid's perspective).  I then pursued teaching, and decided it wasn't for me.  But, that's a story for another day.

June 23--Favorite Blog Post you've written before this challenge.

I hate picking favorites! This one is quite popular (it could be because it has "naked" in the title, though...).  It's the story of how my daughter saved the day!

June 24--Favorite eco-friendly thing to do.

I don't know why this makes me feel good, but on trash day... I feel so good seeing my recycle bin overflowing, and only one trash bin out.  Meanwhile, my neighbors have two, maybe three trash bins out and a meager amount in the recycle bin. 

Hmmm.  That gives me an idea...Eco-competition in suburbia?  Maybe that's how we can get people to reduce and recycle more... let's make it into a competition!  We already compete over our kid's achievements... why not the trash? 

June 28--How do you do your laundry??

Ok, ladies.  I have the Best. Method. Ever. for laundry.  Are you ready for it?

My husband does ALL the laundry!  And he rocks the laundry.  He reads labels, sorts colors, folds with precision...  This man is a laundry ninja!

Pretty sexy, huh?
