Look at Me! I’m Stylish

 Okay, don’t look at me. I admit I’m not stylish, but my blog is! Jean Henry Mead said so when she gave me the Stylish Blogger Award. So stop your snickering.

The rules seem pretty simple: List 7 things about yourself and pass the award on to 7 others. Like there’s something y’all don’t know about me already. But here goes:

1. In high school I worked at the local Dairy Treat (not Dairy Queen - the town was too small for one of those).

2. I also worked at the local bank.

3. Since we’re talking high school, as a senior I was President of the VOE (Vocational Office Education).

4. At graduation, I was one of the speakers.

5. On to college…where I studied constantly.

6. During the one class my (now) husband and I took together, he drove me nuts. While I worked all semester on the end of term project; he waited until the week before it was due to start. And, yes, he passed.

7. I joined a sorority at the start of my junior year, so only two active years. And, yet, I served as the Advisor during the year I worked on my Masters.

That’s it. Seven (boring) things about me.

I’m passing this on to:
Writing Ramblins & Sundry
traverselife
Calling Shotgun
LM Preston
Positive Letters
Thoughts in Progress
Giggles and Guns

I wouldn’t be surprised if some of these lovely people have already received this award, so if any of you would like this award, grab it. So far, I’ve yet to visit a non-Stylish blog.

  1. Well done on your (well-deserved)stylish award! From those seven things we learned that, clearly, teaching and advising others is a life-long vocation for you, which is why we always learn so much from your blog! :)

  5. Judy, you're a sweetheart. You take my boring life and make it sound interesting!

    Thank you both Elizabeth and Hutch. I hadn't really thought of it as having a lot of jobs, but I guess I have done quite a few different things.

  10. Oh those first high school jobs, they seem like such a different time. Thinking of them is like watching a movie, it feels unreal. My first high school job was as a part-time cashier in a local department store.

  11. I love stories of college sweethearts staying in love and staying married. It's so rare these days. You're lucky, Helen. And stylish!

  13. Congratulations, Helen! You are, indeed, "stylish."

    I had to laugh at your list. There's a Dairy Treat in a neighboring Amish town near me and they have one, and years ago, somebody spray-painted it to change the name to "Dairy Sweat." The owners have never changed it back, probably because they knew that everyone talked about it and laughed about it and it became a landmark--just showed good marketing acumen.

    You rock... as always!

  14. Woohoo, congratulations on your award! And thank you again for picking me as one of your 7 Stylish Bloggers. It's made my week. :)

    #6 made me grin. I've also known people who have the ability to wing exams and courses. How do they DO that? So unfair!

  15. The award is well deserved, Helen. I can't think of anyone online who has more class.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I think we might have been the Burger Cousin, Alex.

    Liza, hard to juggle underwater.

    Joanne, I'm surprised they trusted me with money. Math is not my thing.

    Karen, you're clearly not seeing me today. I can't even smile since half my mouth is numb. Just got back from the dentist.

    Les, I love the Dairy Sweat. And that the owner kept it. I didn't know it was a chain!

    I wish I had that ability, Jennifer.

    Jean, there needs to be a Sweetheart Award for you!

  21. Congrats on the award :)

    We had a Dairy Something or other in a nearby town too - wonder if it was a chain as well :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. And then I totally slacked off, Donna.

    Hey, Hilary. Since I married the guy, I'll say it's because he's so freaking cute.

    Bob, did you know that every time I click your name, I get taken to a page that says, Profile Not Available?

    This has been a learning experience, Jemi. I truly thought the Dairy Treat was a local thing.

  29. You're one of those people who can "appear" normal (you say, 'boring'), just going along inconspicuously, 'looking' run-of-the-mill, and then ALWAYS rising to the top with achievement after achievement.

    Not boring - solid and unswerving.

    Hubby drove you nuts, hmm? LOL ...

    ReplyDelete
  30. Ha! Well, you asked for it! ;-)
