Tag: 10 Honest Things

Another tag that was going around, I wanted to join in. I love easy assignments!

 1. I'm allergic to fire ant stings. I discovered it last summer when one attacked my foot and I had difficulty breathing, heart palpitations, swelling, rash, nausea, dizziness, and a fever. All from one tiny ant! Unfortunately now I have to carry an Epi-pen so tiny gorgeous clutches are out for me.

 2. I'm still on the fence about mineral makeup. I get suckered in to trying it but it really emphasizes dry patches of skin and some of it makes my pores look bigger. I have had great experience with mineral blushes.

 3. I love Shirley Temples and I drink them all the time. When I'm in the mood sometimes I'll make a Dirty Shirley.

 4. Love love love wine. I prefer Merlots or Pinot Noir but sometimes in the mood for Cabernet.

 5. I much prefer Pepsi to Coke. I drink a couple of soft drinks a week but it's either Pepsi or not worth it.

 6. My eyes are very large (think Bette Davis or Christina Ricci) and I have to rim them with black liner in an attempt to make them smaller.

 7. I'm not tech savvy. I usually have to enlist help from friends before I buy gadgets for my home.

 8. I'm petite (5'3) and slim but not very strong. My resolution this year was to exercise for strength and I think I have improved. I love cardio but I'm trying to incorporate strength training - I love Ellen Barret from FitTV because she ties cardio, strength and flexibility into every workout.

 9. I'm a clinical dietitian. I work in a hospital now but eventually I'd like to work exclusively with patients with kidney failure on dialysis.

 10. My favorite item in my home is a hand sewn king-size quilt that my grandma and mom made and gave me for Christmas last year. The fabric it at least 50 years old so I'm really timid to use it. I'm hoping to buy a quilt rack to display it in my new apartment.
