random facts!

I have never participated in the blog awards before for many reasons. One being,  I never want to hurt anyones feelings. Everyone has a great blog and I enjoy reading them every day.  Last week Kelly nominated me for an award.  Of course,  I was touched and thrilled. Since I started blogging, it has changed so much about me and most importantly it has boosted my self esteem. I liked this award because you had to give 11 random things about yourself! I figured I could open up to you on random Stesha facts :) 

11 things about me:

1. My name is Russian. No I am not russian, no one in my family is either, my Dad found the name in 2000 names for babies and fell in love with it.  My mom was not sold so I was not named for 3 weeks!
2.  I grew up on a farm in Canada. Yepp, that means cows, chickens, lambs, and goats! Best childhood ever.
3. I HATE melted cheese! Except for on quesadilla's and pizza!
4. I broke my hip when I was 13 and now I have to un-pop both of them before I go running!
5. Country music is my favorite. However, recently I wished I was born a DJ! Dj SJ in the house!
6.  I lived in Hawaii on the island of Molokai for 2 years.  
7. When a pull a plastic cup off of a pile I have to take the 2nd one down. I dont like take the one on top. 
8. I broke my noise when I was in elementary school and am very insecure about the bump. It wasn't until I started blogging that I allow side profile pictures of myself. 
9. I was a ballerina growing up and dance all the way until half way through college. 
10. My favorite color is pink and sunshine yellow
11. I am scared of the dark. 

I also had to nominate 11 other bloggers for the award.  Once again these are in no particular order and it does not mean they are my favorites, but each one of these bloggers has helped me in more ways than one! 
11 bloggers nominated:

1. Kristin: Fancy Things
2. Katie: Running on Happiness
3. Ashlyn: let it be beautiful
4. Kelly: Dirty Messy Hair
5. Amber: Barefoot Blonde
6. Shanna: Because Shanna Said So
7. Gentri: Gentri Lee
8. Leeann: Join the Gossip
9. Meg: Henning Love
10. Candice: Teatime Thoughts
11. Alexandra: To Vogue or Bust

That's so cool you lived in Hawaii! I love Hawaii. Part of me wants to live on a farm surrounded by tons of animals. It would just be a more simple life. Glad you participated!!!! Love you're white glasses so cute!! Xoxoxo Kelly

Melissa Wright said...

Love all these facts! I didn't know you were dancer, I am too! Still dancing and hope to be able to until the day I die!

Faith said...

I was going to say, she hates melted cheese??? But you like pizza and quesadillas so all is well with the world :)

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

Aw thank you! I actually have the same post scheduled for tomorrow - perfect!
You poor thing! You have broken some painful body parts :( In all honesty, I've never noticed a hump on your nose. Promise! You're perfect as is :)

Love reading posts like these! That's so cool that you lived in Hawaii and were a ballerina!

Jenn @ What You Make It said...

Ha I love your random facts! Your name is gorgeous, and I have to give your dad props for sticking with the name he liked. And choosing an original name. Try being in a school with 20 other Jenns and you'll see what I mean ; ) I love that you take the second cup down! I don't know why, I just think it's quirky : )

Lauren Knight said...

Such a great post. It sounds like you had an amazing childhood.

P.s.- your nose is beautiful. you should not be self conscious about it!

Unknown said...

Thanks for sharing :) I thought my husband was the only one who wouldn't take the top cup! I'm also quite scared of the dark...I love horror films but evidently I'm a big sissy when it comes to walking into my house if I forget to leave my porch light on :)

Lovely pic, too!


Nicole said...

Such interesting facts!!

Julie Khuu | Haute Khuuture said...

Aww love these fun facts! Your folks sound so daring and ahead of the trends! Stesha is such a unique name you must've hated it growing up but now it sounds so European and sophisticated! Totally banking it for my future girls :D You're adorable!

Peace. Love. LOL!

Oh my goodness... why did you ever move away from Hawaii?? :)
I love that it took 3 weeks for your parents to agree on your name... I'm afraid that's going to be the case with our baby! Eric likes the weirdest names...

It was so fun getting to know you better!
