Bundled Up Spring Outfit and an Award

It's raining and cold here. So photographing my outfit was not an option, today. Instead I thought I'd share an outfit from last year around this time. When the temps fluctuate all you really need are a warm sweater and a good pair of slacks.

Thank you Sarah of Simply Sarah for awarding me the Tell Me About Yourself Award!

Here are the rules:
    1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you.
    2. Write 7 random things about yourself.
    3. Spread the love to 15 more bloggers. 

    Here are my seven random things:

    1. I used to be a competitive figure skater. Now I am a coach and teach kids and adults of all ages. I landed all of my doubles except for my double axel. I started learning it, but that was around the same time I started college so studies came first. At a skating clinic in Ann Arbor, I met Tara Lipinski and Kurt Browning.
    2. I was the Arts and Life Editor for my college newspaper, the Carroll News. I met Halley Barry and Giovanni Ribisi when their 2007 movie Perfect Stranger premiered in Cleveland. Barry, a Cleveland native, was trying to show some love to her hometown and all of the local college papers had the chance to interview them. She IS really that gorgeous.
    3. In college I was also involved in greek life. I am a member of the sorority Kappa Kappa Gamma. Our colors are dark and light blue. The fleur-di-lis and the key are our symbols. I always keep an eye out for anything featuring either symbol. Jewelry with either is not hard to find. 
    4. In 2008, I did Race for the Cure. My aunt is a breast cancer survivor, so I was interested in getting involved and raising money.
    5.  I have always wanted to learn to play the piano. People always comment that my weird long fingers would have come in handy if I had been a piano player. Also, I feel like it would be a good skill to break out at any social gathering. I should also mention that I love to do karaoke.
    6. This may sound cliche, but I want to travel the world. I think a great job would be as a journalist abroad. I have been out of the United States on a Caribbean cruise and to Canada. I have never been to Europe, and I think my first stop is a tie between Paris and Rome.
    7. Recently, I bought a sewing machine, and I really want to teach myself how to use it and make my own clothes.
