triple tangent tuesday.

29 Mar

Hello to anyone who might be here from FitBlog or Foodgawker! :) Today’s post is just a little bit about me… Very random bits, but still ;)

I’m taking a cue from the oh-so-adorable Janae at Hungry Runner Girl and doing a triple-tangent-Tuesday. Particularly since my food the past two days has not been noteworthy at all… Though I do still have a few recipes from the weekend up my sleeve. :) But for now I’m trying to stay awake after a rather excruciating 4 hour chemistry lab that was probably the most tedious thing I’ve ever experienced. No joke.

So here are three random tangential things about yours truly for your reading pleasure.

1) I used to have short hair.  Here are my senior pictures for proof.

PS If you’re on the west coast and need senior pictures check Michelle out, she’s amazing. :)

Now my hair is significantly longer but I’m kind of debating chopping it off again because it’s easy and because it’s kind of fun. But I can’t decide… I do so like being able to do braids, or just put my hair out of my face…

2) I once climbed a mountain. Mount Baker (elevation 10781 ft, not huge, but still!) in Washington, to be precise. It was intense, and by far the coldest I’ve ever been in my life, and I kind of thought I was going to collapse near the top, but I made it, and it was probably one of the most gratifying moments of my life.

I’m 2nd from the right. :)

Also got a whole lotta memories out of that trip. It was to fulfill our outdoor trip requirement in high school, and I did it the summer before senior year of high school (wow this post is just a flashback isn’t it?!)

3) My friends constantly poke fun at me for all the cookies I bake, and/or tell me I should open a cookie shop and sell my cookies.

More low-sugar cookies

I secretly kind of wish I could. Don’t tell. I mean, it’s not like I’m plastering this all over the internet or anything weird like that. Though I don’t know where or how or even if I would want to go the healthy-cookie route or the buttery-delicious cookie route…

A preview of dough-balls to come.

Tell me some tangents about yourself!

Do you have any random dreams/things you totally wish you could do?

    Gorgeous pictures of you!
    Here’s a rando tanget about me: I’m SUPER good at untangling jewelry ;)

    You should open a bakery!! (just make sure you come to Colorado to do it so I can enjoy your fabulous cookies and your wonderful company ;)

    Those pictures of you are gorgeous! Your hair looks beautiful both long and short. I cut mine short last December, but now I’m growing it back out (I love the braiding part too! :)

    Random fact about me: I’m claustrophobic. Not when I was little, but now I can’t even sit in the back of a two doored car. It’s bad. :(

    Wow you look really pretty with short hair! :)

    I totally think you should open up a cookie shop for buttery AND healthy. Then it could appeal to everyone!

    That short hair looks so cute on you! I could never pull off that style =/ And love those cookies, low sugar? I don’t believe it ;)

  15. Ellie March 30, 2011 at 12:27 pm #

    wow you can actually pull it off Nicole!! You do look super different though and didn’t realize it was you :P It makes you look more mature I think? but regardless, you look great in it. I love that–TANGENTIAL TUESDAY! haha–clever.

    I love short hair! It’s so easy to do, and it looks so good on you!

    Ah hiking is the best! 10,000 feet is impressive seeing the highest mountain on the east coast is 6000 something, and that was a tough climb.

    You look so pretty with short hair! You should cut it, just to change things up. Either way you’re gorgeous :)
    I’ve always wished I could own a bakery/coffee shop. A cozy little one that has regulars. I think that would be such a cute little life.
