Blog Awards

I have been MAJORLY slacking with responding to all of the amazing ladies who have nominated me for various blog awards, but I promise, I'm getting to it now! Forgive me!!!!

I was nominated by the following ladies for a Liebster award:

And these lovely ladies also nominated me for a One Lovely Blog Award:

The rules for each are different, so I'm gonna mish-mash them into one post.

7 Random Facts About Me:

1) Things I love (in no particular order): cheese, dolphins, puppies, reality tv, Pinterest, reading (on my Kindle), text messages with friends

2) My favorite color is purple! But I'm not obsessive with it like making sure every outfit I wear has something purple with it (that's how you end up looking mis-matched and tacky). But if I have a choice of getting something like a Kindle or iphone case, it will 100% have some purple on it!

3) I still wear a t-shirt I have from my 4th grade track team as a gym shirt. And it fits. Like, legit fits. (Given, it used to be ginormous when I was in 4th grade, but still...)

4) I love giving gifts. I get excited about the person's reaction and making someone else feel all warm and fuzzy. Sometimes giving gifts is better than getting them, especially when there's thought put into it!

5) I can crack my toes. Gross, I know (but it feels so good sometimes!)

6) As I'm writing this, I have 5,209 pins on Pinterest. That's a lot of Pins....and a lot of hours on Pinterest lol

7) My favorite movies from growing up are Mannequin (hello 80's Kim Cattrell!), and The Cutting Edge. I've probably watched each one at LEAST 100 times, and can pretty much quote the each movie throughout. Anyone else remember these movies??

Now, I'm gonna take one question from each of the bloggers who nominated me, rather than answering 400 questions and boring you all to death lol

From Emily@The Cozy Corner  What is your favorite smell? I'd have to say it's anything cinnamon apple scented. I love that smell and will buy candles all the time that are apple, or cinnamon apple. Yum!

From Mae@Endlessly Ever After  What got your blog started? I started reading blogs when my best friend told me about her sister's blog (hey Michelle!), and then I decided to start blogging when I read Casey's blog over at Poodleism--she was so funny and down to earth, and I loved how creative she was. I knew it would be a great outlet for me, as well!

From  Becky@Becky Boops If you could live in any book universe, where would you choose? I would probably choose Harry Potter, but in the world after Voldemort haha--I love all of the fun things that they can do with magic, all of the interesting/unique characters you meet while reading it. It's just a fun place!
And now I nominate the following 7 bloggers for the One Lovely Blog award to share 7 random facts about yourself and nominate some more bloggers!:

  1. I loved learning more about you and have to agree with your favorite food - cheese all the way! I used to love sleeping in those shirts we got in elementary school and you're so right - they totally made them big so we could fit in the later in life LOL! My husband can crack his toes and I'm sort of envious lol!! Thanks so much for the nomination girl! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

  3. Hmmmmmm I need to go and check how many pins I have. I started on pinterest when it was like in the beta testing lol. I totally have an old field hockey shirt from Junior High....I mean you can't get shirts that comfortable if they aren't a million years old! I told rise on my tippie toes and then crack them! Best feeling ever!

My favorite color is purple {I have on a purple jacket this very minute} and although there is no way in HELL I could fit into an old 4th grade shirt or swim with dolphins, I do love cheese, my Kindle, Pinterest, and texting!
