We've been tagged by Paulina of Veggie Delight to share a little bit about ourselves through a meme. These are the rules:
# Players must list one fact, word, or tidbit that is somehow relevant to their life for each letter of your first or middle name.

# When you are tagged you need to write your own post containing your first or middle name game facts, word, or tidbit.

# At the end of your post choose one person for each letter of your name to tag.

# Don’t forget to leave a comment telling them they’re tagged and to read your blog.

# If I’ve tagged YOU (the bloggers that I've tagged are listed at the end), please join in on the fun!

Ok, here goes...
Lisa and Krista

L is for Learning. We enjoy learning - learning about nutrition, health, cultures, vegetarianism, sustainability, God, and just life. We've been in school for so long, and even though this is our last year in school, we will continue to learn everyday.

I is for Involved. We love volunteering and making a difference. We are always doing some volunteer work. Through volunteering in the community, we have grown personally and have met some of the sweetest people. We have learned so much by being involved in the community. Our most memorable volunteering experiences has been volunteering at an assisted living, our church food pantry, and an animal shelter. Not only do we volunteer, but we try to donate to worthy causes. We also are sponsers to two lovely girls (Mary from Zambia and Daniella from Columbia) through the Children International sponsorship program. Finally, we are members of the Nutrition and Dietetic Association, American and Dietetic Association, and Texas Dietetic Association, and we were members of the University of NH's Animal Rights Alliance.

S is for Studious. We are very much hardworking and dedicated students. Trying our best at our work is one of our highest priorities in life. Sometimes it seems we work too hard...

A is for Appreciative. We try to appreciate all that has been given to us. Each day we try to be optimistic and thankful for our family, our friends, our pets, school, and all that we are blessed with!

K is for Kind. We are friendly sweet gals and want to please people. We enjoy volunteering and helping others. We don't like it when we hurt someone else's feelings!

R is for Religious. Our faith is very important to us. We love God and look to him each day for guidance and strength. We regularly attend mass and strive to grow in faith and love. We depend on Him and thank Him for all that we have in our lives.

I is for Interested in Nutrition. Our passion is nutrition and food. We love learning about nutrition and how food impacts health. We love cooking and baking. We love to eat great-tasting vegetarian natural foods. We are finishing up our Bachelors in Nutritional Science, and we would like to work in the food industry dealing with nutrition-related work. We try to help our parents improve their nutrition. We are disgusted with the American way of life - non-nutritious junk food!

S is for Soft-spoken. We are shy and quiet. We just don't talk that much; rather we are better at listening. Sometimes people associate it with being rude, but we aren't. We are very sweet, just reserved. Communicating in person isn't the strongest characteristic about us.

T is for Traveler. We enjoy traveling and seeing beautiful landscapes and architecture, national parks, quaint towns, and new places. We love experiencing new cultures. Ever since we were little, we've enjoyed traveling with our family - Canada, Germany, California, Hawaii, New Hampshire, Cayman Islands, and other US states. We also learn new things by traveling! (For instance, by exchanging to the University of New Hampshire, we learned about vegetarianism!)

A is for Agreeable. Overall we both agree with each other on things, and we get along quite well. Every so often we bicker at little things and maybe raise our voices at each other, but most often we come to an agreement. But overall we think alike and so we end up agreeing in the first place!

So, now you know a little more about us.

Since we don't know too many other bloggers, and many of you have already been tagged, we are just tagging two people (Sorry for breaking the rules!):
GG of Be Animal Aware

- Peace, LK

Thanks for the shout out to Children International. I'm one of the blog moderators for CI and a vegan to boot! I love the recipes and the photos.

Great site! I've bookmarked you.

It's great to learn more about the two of you! I didn't know we had so much in common. I too tend to be very soft-spoken and if you ask anyone to describe me they'd say I am quiet but sweet at the same time. I also consider myself to be studious and I have a huge passion for nutrition. Also, in my life God comes first, I strive to grow closer to him each and every day :)

You are truly twins - each of you spoke as "we"! Thanks for sharing yourselves. I think you have a great blog and we're practically neighbors!

I used to be shy too and it really hurt my feelings when people would call me stuck up.

You asked where to get kasha. I got mine from the bulk bin at Whole Foods.

Maybe you two can come to Austin for the Veggie Chili Fest. I think it's Nov. 4. I'm trying to rally the locals.

Loved learning more about you two. It's so great that you guys are so close and always have one another. I think it's awesome that you are pursuing your passion for health and studying nutrition in school.

Thanks for tagging me, I'll be posting my meme soon!
