One Lovely Blog Award

Early last week, Marissa from What Makes Me Happy graciously gave me my very first blogging award.  I swear, I meant to pay if forward when it happened, but I was down with a terrible migraine for a few days, and it just got away from me.  So now here I am, better late than never, right?

How To Play:
So the rules (that are meant to be broken or at least slightly altered) for the award are:
1) Link back to the person who passed you the award
2) Share 7 random things about yourself
3) Award 15 6 Blogs
4) Drop them a note and tell them about it

The Facts:
OK, I am a pretty random person in general, so this is easy peasy lemon squeazy.  Plus I stole these facts from a list I created early on in my blog (before I had actual readers, check it out here).

1) I cannot write with a pen that is missing its cap. The weight feels all wrong. I also do not like writing with black pens.

2) I like eating tuna on a toasted garlic or onion bagel with cream cheese, minced onion, and green olives (no mayo). I swear, it is good. Don't knock it til you've tried it:)

3) My husband and I have matching personalized license plates. They are only amusing to us, and other people just end up looking at me funny if I try to explain what they mean.

4) I cannot parallel park. In fact, I am not the world’s greatest driver. Anyone who has ever spent much time in a car with me driving has volunteered to drive on future occasions.

5) My sister has the most incredible singing voice, which is definitely not a gene that was passed on to me. However, I love to sing in the car with the kind of reckless abandon of an American Idol finalist. This may directly relate to #4

6) I like to win. After I win, I feel bad for the loser and want them to win instead. If I lose, I don't want to play anymore. Luckily, I am good at keeping these feelings to myself.

7) I treat my dogs like miniature people. They were all rescues and I like to think they have forgotten about their past lives, and only remember how good their lives are today.
I am truly touched that someone out there is enjoying my blog. There are so many amazing people out there with interesting photos, ideas, and stories to share. In fact, there are so many blogs that I just love to read, it is hard to choose just a few to share with you.  I am passing this award on to 6 blogs that you might wanna check out. 

Lovely Blogs:
Vivian from
Lost in Translation. Her tales of life as an expat in Japan are endearing.
Michelle from
Ten June. She has the most amazing ideas regarding interior decorating.
Brooke from
Bright Wishes. Her blog is so just so honest.
Melissa from mamaSTYLE.  Food, fashion, and an adorable toddler.
Joanne from Balletpumps and Roses.  Fashion and London (yes please).
Erin from Truffles n Ruffles.  Aside from sharing a first name with me (instant shoo-in), she has great style and does some interesting interviews. 

This is totally unrelated:
And on another note (keeping with the spirit of being random), did you guys catch this article?  She Let Her Boyfriend Dress Her For A Week
Would you ever give your significant other the reigns to dress you?

I think we're dog twins. Whenever that ASPCA commercial comes on with with the dramatic Sarah McLachlan song, I find Murphy and remind him that he's not broken, but wise... {I basically repeat everything the commercial says}. Love it!
Congrats on the award! :D

Michelle @ Ten June said...

Thank you so much for the award, Erin! That is so sweet of you to think of me for the award : ) And such nice things you said! Big smiles over here!

PS. I CANNOT parallel park to save my life... I think it's one of those things I just block out of my mind because I hate doing it... that and laundry... ha ha. Happy holiday weekend! xo
