Beautiful Blogger Award…

26 Feb

Yea…that is right. Someone thinks I’m beautiful! Apparently 2nd most beautiful of her blogging friends apparently!

My good (real life) friend Kati on her blog, What a World…, nominated me for the “Beautiful Blogger Award.”

Here are the rules for accepting this award:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you for the award.
  2. Copy and paste the award on your blog.
  3. Link to the person who nominated you for the award.
  4. Share seven interesting things about yourself.
  5. Nominate your own seven Beautiful Bloggers.

Here we go…

  1. Thank You Kati!!!!
  2. Done above
  3. Done above
  4. Seven INTERESTING things? This may be up to someone else’s interpretation but here goes:
  • I’m a HUGE Disney pin fan. I love going to Disney (or even just Downtown Disney) and scouring employees pins looking for good ones to steal from them. I’ve been thinking about blogging about this…maybe soon?
  • I have the most beautiful girlfriend in the world. Straight up! I’m beyond lucky to have found someone so amazing who just fits with me (which isn’t easy BTW).
  • My hair is falling out. So much so that it creates “Joe Bunnies” (as JC coined them) that appear in the bathroom and try to escape. I’m worried that one day my hair may lead to the downfall of the human race.
  • As I said in my post yesterday, I’ve read more books this year than I had in many many years (maybe my whole life). I have a hard time getting into books and lose interest quickly. I also will develop headaches after long periods of reading. Lame.
  • I have recently started singing in a church choir again and am REALLY enjoying it. The choir at Tuskawilla Presbyterian Church is REALLY good and Pastor Chris has interesting sermons. It finally got to the point where I decided to join the church. As of Valentine’s Day I’m an official member! They had to vote on us, scary, and I passed!! Woo Hoo
  • I don’t have a lot of self-confidence. Prime example, this list! Writing seven things about myself is really hard. I’d much rather talk about a movie or some stupid internet fad then about myself. I also get REALLY nervous when I sing in front of people. I’m ok in the choir but I sang a solo at Christmas and will be singing a duet (with JC) coming up. I’ll probably have a heart attack that day
  • Last thing! I’m going to Italy this summer!!! WOOO HOOOO. I’m going with JC and some of her family. We will be visiting Venice, Florence and Rome. Maybe even going to squeeze some roller coastering in!!

5. I don’t think I know seven bloggers personally and one that I DO know tagged me (which means I probably can’t tag her!). I’ll tag Jessica, Joe and Rob.

Thanks again Kati for tagging me and I hope everyone enjoyed learning some “interesting” things about me. I’m beautiful!

Farewell to a Dear Friend!

6 May

Some of you already know because the other night I polled a bunch of my friends as to what they thought of it. The response was a resounding “Joe, we hate your beard!”

Now, don’t think this is peer pressure. I’ve actually been thinking about a change for about a month and once I thought I came to a decision I put it up for vote knowing I would ignore all of you if you picked the wrong answer anyways! I really didn’t think it would be so lopsided though. I received 15 responses and only 2 were pro-beard!

Before:

There it is!

There it is!

Yup, the rest are past the break!

Barry Melrose

25 Jun

Yesterday the Tampa Bay Lightning named Barry Melrose as their new head coach. My favorite NHL team happens to be the Tampa Bay Lightning. My favorite hair-do happens to be the mullet. Barry Melrose has always been an icon in hair to me. I do NOT have a mullet, but recognize the benefit of the “Business in the front, party in the rear” look.

This is classic Melrose:

Recently, as an ESPN analyst (he hasn’t coached in the league since 1995) he has sported a slick back mullet-esque look:

I’m hoping he goes to his old coaching hair when he steps back on the ice. So, three cheers for great hair behind the bench for the lightning!
