I got tagged with two things recently, so instead of 2 blog posts, I'm combining them into one ;)
I was tagged in this one by the lovely Laura at Clothes, Cosmetics and Chat. Her blog is so cute, definitely worth having a look around ;)
The rules of this award are that I should share 7 facts about myself and then pass this award on to 15 other bloggers. I don't think this award is particularly new in the blogosphere, so I'm just going to tag those of you I follow that don't appear to have this yet :)
A Polished Touch
PishPosh and Polish
Obsessive Compulsive Nail Painting Disorder
Only Always a Soccer Mom
Purple Fairy Dust
As for the facts, see the following tag!
I was tagged by Jackie over a MeMa's Mani's. Check her out :)
Here are the rules to this particular tag:
Each person must post 11 things about themselves on their blog
Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post and create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.
You have to choose 11 people to tag and link them on the post.
Go to their page and tell them you have linked him or her.
No tag backs.
No stuff in the tagging section about "You are tagged if you're reading this" You actually have to tag 11 people.
11 Things About Me
1. I'm french Canadian, born and raised in northern Ontario but have been living on the east coast for 7 years because of school (and because it's pretty great out here).
2. I am in my late 20's and have never taken longer than 8 months off of school.. I'm a sucker for punishment
3. I'm currently working towards a masters degree in fish population genetics (essentially I look at fish DNA and can find out how many populations I'm dealing with, if the population(s) are healthy or not etc., it's more complicated than that but that's the jist of things)
4. I have a much older brother and sister, a gorgeous niece and nephew, and a huge extended family.
5. I love to knit, and I especially love knit socks, they're the most comfortable socks one could wear
6. I have 2 kitties, one's a munchkin and the other one quite possibly has the longest legs I've seen on a cat. They make a pretty cute pair.
