Blog Awards

In the past few weeks, I have so sweetly been given three blog awards.  I am so humbled by this and thrilled that you each thought of me.  I want to pass these all on to the many wonderful blogs that I frequent.  This is the first award that I received.

1) Thank the person who gave you this award:
Many thanks to Kathy from  Life As I Know It.  She has a really great blog all about the things going on in her life (and she knows a lot about penguins).  You know you want to take a peek:)

2) Reveal three random facts about yourself:
- I know all of the words to the following movies: Grease 2, When Harry Met Sally, Heathers, 13 Going on 30, Anchorman, The Princess Bride, and 10 Things I Hate About You.  I sometimes can't stop myself from saying them out loud.  And yes, I sing along with Grease 2 (and also with 10 Things, which one of my favorite bands of ever appears in).

- I had my two front teeth knocked out twice in my life. This also means that my mom was called to school to pick me up because I had my two front teeth knocked out twice.  Once when I was in kindergarten and a kid ran into me on the playground.  They were my baby teeth.  The other time was in 9th grade.  I was high-sticked in the mouth with a hockey stick in P.E.  These were my adult teeth.  It was not a good scene.  My bottom teeth actually went through my lip.  I had to get a root canal.  Then I had to get veneers.  Luckily, they look pretty real (thank goodness for modern dental technology).  

- I have a very dear friend that moved to England, and have developed a love of all things British (see Anglophile).  These are my favorite cookies in the entire world (and very hard to find in the states).  I love all varieties of Hobnobs (as you can see here). 

 I also have a girl crush on Nigella Lawson, and I can't seem to not buy any magazine with a Middleton on the cover.  I loved watching this.  And just between you and me...


3)  Pass the award on:
And now to pay this award forward.  I am constantly discovering new blogs that inspire me.     I love reading so many of them, and if I don't mention you this time, I still adore you, and your time will come.   

Stephanie at Big Mario Life.  I really love the story about how she got the name of this blog.

Jaimie at Everyday J.  Plus she both a Florida Gator and a lover of Survivor.  Future BFF!!

Adele from intotheblonde.  I know what you are thinking, and no, it is not just because she is British.  OK, that helps:)  She also has a fierce style (that just so happens to be sporting the Union Jack today).
