Lovely Blog Award

Happy Hump Day!

We are officially half way through the last full week before Christmas. Have I got you stressed out yet? Let's be real, I've been in varying stages of stress since December 1st. You can read more about that HERE.

We were pretty sick all of last weekend, so I'm even more stressed out and trying to catch up a little more than I had originally planned. That's why I decided to do something fun on the blog today!

Amanda at Kids and Cabernet nominated me earlier this month for the Lovely Blog Award. What exactly is it?

Well, I will share 7 facts about myself, and then tag 7 more wonderful bloggers to keep the award going. Sounds like a grand time, right?

Ok, here it goes!

ONE: I have an addiction to Gilmore Girls. Yes, it has been off air for like seven years. Yes I have seen every episode just about a million times, but it truly never gets old. It may or may not be on Netflix right now as I'm typing.

TWO: I rarely get myself dressed up (aka anything other than sweats) unless I have to run errands during the week. This is partly because I don't see what the point is of looking nice at home, and partly because I have lost enough weight (yay!) and haven't bought new clothes, so I don't have a lot to wear. It's sad really, most of my closet consisted of clothes from high school/beginning of college when I moved into my house.

THREE: I've always wanted to learn another language, but I've never been disciplined enough to actually do it. Spanish in high school was a joke, and although I took 2 years of American Sign Language during college, I feel like I'm really not very fluent. Maybe someday...

FOUR: I am a total sucker for anything romantic, cheesy or otherwise. I really don't care if flowers are cliche, I'll swoon every time. I never get tired of The Notebook and just love Valentine's Day.

FIVE: I love to read. I really haven't had much time since I became a mommy, but when I get a chance I try to read as much as possible. Lately it's been more about blogging or hobbies I'm interested in, but I love nonfiction and fiction alike.

SIX: I'm the textbook definition of a dreamer. I've constantly got ideas and plans swirling in my head. A lot of which never really makes it to reality. It drives my husband nuts because we are exact opposites in that arena.

SEVEN: I always thought that I would move around the country, following my job. I'm pretty sure that we will be staying in the central Ohio area for the long haul and surprisingly I'm pretty content about that.

Who I'm Nominating (if they'd like to participate!):

Tif at Bright on a Budget
Katie at Cup of Tea

  1. I'm a Gilmore Girls fanatic too. I have the whole series and never tire of watching it! The Notebook.... Love. If I'm home I'm in my sweats too - why get dressed up? Lol

    1. I haven't really found another show that I like quite like that!

      And that's exactly my thoughts! Staying comfy is my priority lol.

  2. Yay - thanks for sharing and thanks for the nomination!! We are so excited to participate and promise to have our list up once the holidays slow down!

    xoxo, - M @ The Sequin Notebook
