Noteworthy, Moi?


Blogger made my silly little blog its Blog of Note today.

In the spirit of being noteworthy I will list six other things of note about me, for your reading pleasure.
1.) I am short. Short as in "can't reach the bowls" short. 
2.) My cankles are pretty noteworthy. The Holbs's college roommate even noted on them one time so you know (for once) I'm not exaggerating.
3.) I threw shot put in high school track after getting kicked off the sprints, distance, and jumps teams for being too slow, too pathetic, and too short, respectively. The shot put team, they keep everyone they can get. My PR was 8 feet.
4.) I have no kids, though not for lack of trying. I have decided I am not infertile, I am impatient.
5.) I think Diet Coke tastes best when it's from a fountain and for breakfast.
6.) My goal is to one day have pretty handwriting.

To help us get acquainted, I will refer you to this post which I wrote for my Blog's fourth birthday (my blog is so spoiled!). My more popular labels seem to be Gurgly Babies and The Holbs. You should know that I try not to take myself too seriously in here and neither should you. (I take myself plenty seriously in my real life, thanks.)

You can also check out my Etsy shop, Onesie-Twosie, should you feel so inclined.

So, welcome! Feel free to introduce yourself in the comments!

  8. Hi Nat. I randomly saw you listed as the "blog of note" and decided to drop by. Your name is what caught my eye because I'm also a Nat. :)
    Cute blog! Anyway, I discovered we have other stuff in common- we like to blog about random stuff (mine in the form of my favorite actor, but really I just like to blog and have met lots of people this way- plus I have a family blog and a business blog. I guess I'm just a blog addict. and I like saying "blog"), I am also LDS, I have a hubby who grows a beard (although his isn't red and I usually tell him to shave), and I love all that stuff you listed in your "about me" section.
    That's it... I think we should be friends.
    *high five* :)

  12. Hi! I´m Ana and I started a new blog today. I´m tall and portuguese. I like my job but I´ll be something else in the future, like some kind of hungry writer. I travel a lot but never stay enough time in one place. I wear too much makeup daily and I´ll end up whit some skin disease for sure. I can be nice, and can be mean, I´m a normal human being.

    If you don´t have much to do, go and visit my blog http://onestoryperweek.blogspot.com/. WARNING: it is not cultural, neither educational ;)

  21. Happy day, what a fun blog. I like your writing - but full disclaimer, I also like reading Men's Health in the dentist waiting room. And yes, the Office wedding was a bit of a letdown. All the shots panning between Pam and Jim at the end like "oh geez, look at our CRAZY co-workers!" was a bit much. Anyway, have a great day as the blogger.com superstar-of-the-day.

  24. Wow, blog of note. Pretty prestigious I say. Congrats!

  25. Heart of the Arts? Hmm. I'm finding that hard to believe. ;)

    I grew up in Idaho (the southeastern part) now I live in SD.

    I must tell you that I thought my husband was giving me a death sentence when he decided to move us here for school. But it is the most wonderful place I have lived thus far!

    The housing prices are reasonable, the people are wonderful and the landscape is beautiful (albeit slightly flat).

    He wanted to go to Moscow... I talked him out of it. ;)

    Congratulations.

    Oh, and how short is short? Do you have a measurement you'd like to give?

  26. Blogs of Note directed me here. And I am glad it did. Lovely blog.

  27. Hello! After even a quick scan over your blog, I very much think it looks like a great read! And I love your ethos 'making our little lives significant', why shouldn't we write about what we see and do! Your dogs look adorable!
    Best wishes

  29. Blog of Note, congratulations. I was reading your previous post and saw the comment about libraries. I went to one yesterday for first time in a long time to get blog books and the box of pencils on the desk were minis!!!!

    So insightful. :)

    Have a great weekend!

  33. I 100% agree with the Diet Coke from the fountain...there's something about the ice in a fountain drink. I think they put some kind of crack in it to get you addicted. That's the theory in my house anyway. Congrats on Blog of Note!!

  51. Introducing myself in this comment:

    I'm Rach, born and raised in Portugal. I'm a law student and I truly believe Diet Coke tastes better than regular Coke.
    Also, I'm so happy your blog was noticed by Blogger, otherwise I would never have noticed it myself...and that would be a great loss ;)

    ReplyDelete
  52. I'm glad they added you. That's how I found it, and I'm a sucker for these "me" themed blogs.

    We're still waiting for Coke-fountains up here in Canada.

  53. I am short as well...Oh well, we deal! Cute blog.

  56. Hello there,

    First off, love the picture. I was laughing really hard when I saw "Welcome to Moscow" right next to "University of Idaho". Congrats on being noteworthy!

    My name is RJ, and I am a journalism student with one sole mission: informing the public about the latest tech trends. It's a bit geeky, I know, but I try my hardest to put some humor in my blog. I've been blogging for the longest time, but I have yet to have an audience of my own. (But hey, I'd take 2 loyal, daily readers over 100 followers that don't even glance twice at my blog.)

    So won't you all please give my blog a looksie? Please and thank you.

    One last thing...short people are AMAZING. Without them, tall people would all be the same. :)
