Some of you might be unaware of my stance on medals/bling. Just so there is NO confusion. I love it. Honestly, sometimes just THINKING about the awesome shiny medal I will get at the end of a race is all that keeps me going. Most fellow bloggers have the really awesome Allied Medal Holders. I bought a bunch of these (not so cheaply) last year to make sure I'd have enough so all my medals could be displayed in matching cases. (I personally like the Allied ones better, but I already have these...) Anyway, I certainly do NOT just toss mine in a drawer. When I get around to it, they are hung up on my wall even!
Sometimes I might be too lazy to hang up the display,but they are still hung up nicely (although the case is on the floor - and has been for... at least 2-3 months now).
I will admit that I am NOT so great about getting them hung up. Actually J does it for me. I just need to remind him to do it and tell him which order they go in... So for a few months they just *might* be in a heap on my dresser (for shame)
I know not everyone feels the same way I do about medals. Considering I'm not super awesome fantastic at anything, these are the only real awards I've ever really received, and I'm damn proud of them. So you better believe I'll have them on display for anyone/everyone to see.
