Best Blog Award!


I am floored! After working another long, but great day, followed by going out to a delicious and fun dinner with my girlfriends, I did not think this day could end any better. I was wrong. I came home to discover I was awarded the Best Blog Award by AntiquedGold and Superficial Sanctuary! Thank you so much! You are too kind! I am honored and flattered and shocked! You are both incredible and inspirational bloggers and women! I always look forward to reading your blogs, and am truly honored you have nominated me for this award. Thank you so so so much from the bottom of my heart! If you have not checked out these girls' blogs, you are really missing out, so go see all they have to offer and fall in love with them just as I did.

Now there are rules when one is awarded such a great honor,
1. Link back to the person/people who awarded you (above)
2. Share 7 random facts about yourself.


1. In order to fall asleep I have to have background noise, so I watch Netflix shows like Wizards of Waverly Place until I doze off.
2. I use 79 cent shampoo and conditioner and I love it. VO5 is great. My hair is so healthy and light.
3. Money burns a hole in my pocket. I am sure this is true for many people, but seriously, I have a problem.
4. I cannot sleep with socks on. It drives me crazy.
5. I have two ear piercings, but I rarely ever put earrings in my second holes. Kind of a waste, I should really do something about that.
6. I have a thing for blank cards. Whenever I see a cute set of cards I have to pick them up. I probably have dozens of blank cards. I love sending people mail, but I don't do it very often, but I should start to because who doesn't love getting mail?
7. Sometimes my friends and I color in color books, usually when watching movies. I will always be a child at heart.

3. Award other bloggers.
These bloggers are creative, passionate, stylish and a joy to read. I always look forward to reading their blogs.
You are all truly amazing bloggers! Keep up the great work!


4. Answer the following:
Favorite Color: Turquoise
Favorite Song: I honestly don't think I can pick a favorite. I have so many. Anything by Adele, Mumford & Sons, Maroon 5, the list goes on...
Favorite Dessert: Cheesecake
Making You Pissy: When people don't text you back, but update Twitter or Facebook.
When you're upset, you: Go to my room to calm down and listen to music.
Favorite Pet: I have only had one pet when I was growing up. He was a great dog and his name was Mickey, after Mickey Rooney.
Black or White: Black
Biggest Fear: Losing my family
Best Feature: My eyes
Everyday Attitude: I am almost always in a great mood. I try to stay positive all the time. Life is too short to sweat the small stuff.
What is Perfection: Like the quote, "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder." I feel this also applies to perfection.
Guilty Pleasure: Watching the Jersey Shore. I know it makes mankind look horrible, but it is just hilarious.

Well, there you have it! Again, thank you so much AntiquedGold and Superficial Sanctuary! You both deserve this award, hands down, and I am honored and flattered to be acknowledged by you both for this award!

re:

#2 -- i wish there were such a thing as 79 cent shampoos and conditioners here! i really wouldn't mind using `em either.

#3 -- DITTO.

#4 -- i LOVE wearing socks! i'd bathe wearing them if i could although soggy socks are always eww.

#7 -- SAME HERE!!!! although, i only know one friend who enjoys colouring books as much as i do. i actually have one barbie colouring book that i still haven't gotten `round to colouring in just because i don't really have the heart to put it to use. but i guess i should since it's already there... hmm.

congratulations on the award!
