An award? For moi?

Hey all, I'm back with my second post for the day (a semi-rarity around here), because this awesome chica, Casey over at Poodleism has passed on an award to me:

She is a SUPER cool blogger, highly entertaining (I love her humor), and is one of the people who inspired me to start writing a blog (when I read her blog I was like "I totally relate to this girl--maybe I should write a blog too!") So, thank you, Casey!

So the rules for receiving this award are:

1. Thank the person that gave you the award.  (check)
2. Share three random facts about yourself.
3. Pass the award on to five other bloggers.

Three random facts about me....

  • If you've read my blog, especially within the past week, you know that I LOVE dolphins (not quite like the principal in Bad Teacher, but close haha), BUT I can't swim. I know HOW to swim, took swimming lessons when I was little, but to no avail. If it was sink or swim, my hiney would be sinkin' quickly past the fishies.
  • I have lived in the DC/MD/VA area (or DMV as we like to call it here) for my entire life. My parents still live in the house that I grew up in, I went to college at the University of Maryland, lived at home during grad school where I commuted into DC, and now live in Virginia and commute into DC for work. I'm one of the very few people in the area who is actually a native DMV'er.  I love the city, and all that it has to offer, but sometimes I think since I've only ever lived here, I sometimes take it for granted.
  • My absolute three favorite movies of all time are: Serendipity (it's so sweet and totally all about fate which, as a girl, how can I NOT love?), Mannequin (a Kim Cattrell throw-back, but I used to watch this movie so often when I was younger that I could probably repeat the lines to the whole movie to this day), and The Cutting Edge (again, another one that I used to watch, especially during the phase in my life that I was obsessed with watching ice skating....I even met Kristi Yamaguchi once!)
And now, to give this title to some other bloggie friends who I love to "follow":
  • Trish@ Tales From Trish  (she's my real life in-person friend and a super great one at that, former college-roomie, and to top it all off her blog rocks my socks)
  • PinkLouLou@ Confessions of a 20 Something (I love her posts, they are so funny, she's super relate-able and I could totally see myself being friends with her in "real life")
  • Meg @ Deviled Megs  (again, her humor is right in line with mine, and she's a fellow DC-blogger as well)
  • Faye@ faye'sbook (she and I have VERY similar tv-watching habits and a mutual fondness for Michael Stagliano from the Bachelorette/Bachelorpad lol)
  • Lindsey@ The Bargain Blonde (she is totally sassy and sarcastic and I find myself cracking up at the stuff she writes. Not to mention I have taken much advice from her on beauty products and how-to's and passed along the info to others, too!)

These are definitely a few of the blogs that I make sure NEVER to miss a post from! Stop by and check 'em out if you haven't already!

Super excited, still, for the blog love! Happy Wednesday!


  1. Thank you so much sweet girl! And I see you mentioned my lover Lindsey in there as well! Love her! xoxo Have a great day sista!

  2. LOL! This is AWESOME! thanks boo! I dig your blog too! Every time I'm reminded that you can't swim totally blows me away. I'll teach you. Get your floaties ready!

  3. And now I know we are also both TERPS! Thank you so much for the award -- I was *just thinking* I needed a bloggy break from work this afternoon ;)

  4. I LOVED The Cutting Edge when I was growing up!! :)

  5. I like the hustle and bustle of DC and my daughter goes to school up there but WOW it is crazy up there...


I LOVE hearing your thoughts and comments--so, make my day and leave me some lovin'!
