stylish blogger award!

My day has started off good for 3 major reason.
  1. I slept in! This never happens... but it did today! I slept until 9:45 :)
  2. I noticed as soon as I opened my eyes that the sun was shining.
  3. I had a little pink blinking light on my phone telling me that I had new emails and text messages. One of those messages was from Tiffany at My Lemonade Dreams informing me that she had chosen me for the Stylish Blogger Award! Thank you Tiffany! I love your blog, too :) This really means a lot to me because although I'm not new to blogging (I started a few years ago), I am new to blogging consistently. This just inspires me to keep on going :)

Here's the rules:

1. Thank the person who tagged you and link back to their blog.

2. Share 7 random facts

3. Share the blog love!

Ok so I've already thanked Tiffany, but let me urge you all to take the time to check out her blog, My Lemonade Dreams. I'm pretty sure you'll love it :)

Now for my 7 random facts....
  • I have an addiction to magazines. Admitting is the first step, right? I subscribe to Shape, Self, Real Simple, Fitness, US Weekly and I buy Nylon, Bust, InStyle, Oprah and Juxtapoz regularly from Half Price Books. I also have apps on my phone for Reason and Nylon.
  • I have the biggest crush on Ian Somerhalder, who plays Damon on Vampire Diaries. Not only does he have gorgeous smoldering eyes, but he has his own foundation. The IS Foundation aims to empower, educate and collaborate with people and projects to positively impact the planet and its creatures. Beautiful and wants to save the world... now that's perfection in my eyes! and he lives in ATL, where my best friend lives and where I happen to be going in fall :)
  • I moved to Oklahoma on Friday June 13th, 2003 when I was 20 years old. I packed as much as I could in my red four door Pontiac Grand Am and left around 8 am, embarking on my first ever road trip. I only took the wrong highway once and quickly turned myself back around. The 1,000 mile drive took me 14 hours and I arrived in Moore, OK safe, sound and super excited around midnight. Since then, I've driven back and forth about 20 times, the last time was January 2011 for Jill's wedding.
  • I love Reese's Peanut Butter cups. LOVE them. I could eat them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Spring is my favorite because they sell Reester Bunnies!
  • I hate being cold. I hate winter. I hate snow (but I loooove driving in it!). When I was in high school, my bf Katie and I decided to get a job at a ski resort because we thought there would be hot guys working there. But we hated standing outside for several hours in the freezing cold so we called in all the time. Once we called in and said that we had gotten in a car accident on the way to work so we couldn't come in and went to a guys house instead. Perfect plan, right? Well, it was until the resort called our parents later to make sure we were OK. Busted.
  • I love coffee but I can only drink it if it's Folger's Breakfast blend and I drown it in sugar free french vanilla creamer and sprinkle it with cinnamon.
  • I haven't eaten meat in 4 days. The more I think about how much I love animals and hate the idea of hunting, the less appealing eating any animal becomes. I've still been cooking meat because Jeremy is definitely carnivorous, but so far I'm over it. The only meat that sounds amazing to me is rainbow trout and seared mahi mahi!
Now for the best part! I would like to pass along the stylish blogger award to.............

Congrats ladies... you definitely deserve this award!

One more thing I wanted to share with you today.... I discovered this song last week and I love it. It's so bouncy and happy, I find myself humming along to it even after it's over...
Enjoy :)


  1. Three things-

    (1) Congrats on the award! :D My Lemonade Dreams also awarded me, I'll have to get to that soon. :)

    (2) That song is great. I wish I had it on my iPod. FANTASTIC! :D

    (3) That is AWESOME that you've been vegetarian for four days! I'm a vegan myself, and the thought of eating an animal disgusts me after years of not. Especially since I love animals... and since I've done research into the way the meat industry raises animals. Not pleasant at all- in fact, horribly cruel!

    But anyway- that is great, and I completely support you in your venture!
