TAG! Name yourself!

I've been TAGGED! I was "tagged" by Jen of Jennyfer's Culinary Creations. As a result, I must list facts or tidbits about myself and then tag other people. However, I'm throwing in a twist I found on other food bloggers.... and you have to post these rules before you give the facts.

-- Players, you must list one fact, word or tidbit that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your first or middle name.
-- When you are tagged you need to write your own blog-post containing your own first or middle name game facts, word or tidbit.
-- At the end of your blog-post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your name to tag. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.
-- So if I've tagged YOU, please join in on the fun!

My name.... JOELEN:

J ~ Jovial approach to life. I love sharing the little things in life that make me happy with hopes to make other people smile (which is usually food related!)

O ~ Opportunities. With every day, I find opportunities to better myself in some way, shape or form. Either in my work, relationships, personal time, I like taking opportunities that challenge me to be a better person in the end.

E ~ Energetic. When it comes to food related things, I feel completely energized and full of life. However, I wish I could be as energetic when it comes to doing the daily chores of cleaning, laundry, etc.

L ~ Laugh. You can be sure that you will hear be laugh at least once with each time we meet. It's a way for me to relieve stress, relax and enjoy the company of others.

E ~ Entice. I hope to continue to improve my photo taking skills so my blog can further entice my readers. Heck, I hope my Chicago cooking group continues to grow and I'll be able to entice more Chicagoans to my group's events in the coming months!

N ~ No beef. My husband and I recently decided to cut beef out of our diet. We're focusing on more fruits and vegetables along with lean protein. So far so good!

Here's who I'm tagging!
