Stylish Blogger = Friday Fun

stylish blogger

First of all, a big thanks to one of my favorite bloggers, Ty, for awarding me with the [new and improved—looks so pretty] Stylish Blogger Award!  It’s always so fun to ‘win’ blog awards and I am happily receiving this one!

Rules of the game are simple, I have to share seven random facts about me and then award this to seven other bloggers.  

[1]      If I do not make my bed in the morning and let’s face it, I rarely do, I will make my bed before I go to bed.  I like crawling into a bed with the sheets pulled up tight, rather than scattered everywhere.  Does it make sense, nope, but it makes me happy.

[2]      I recently chopped my hair.  I will provide a picture when I actually style it and not just throw it up in a ponytail soon.

[3]      Not so random (at least to any loyal readers), but I am obsessed with my nieces and nephews.  As in, I pretty much think they are the coolest kids ever and brag about them as if they are my own.  Did I mention I love being an aunt?!

[4]      I hate it when shampoo doesn’t lather.  Case in point, last week on a business trip I opted to use the fancy hotel shampoo and I HATED it because it did not lather well.  I ended up using about 4x the amount I really needed in my hair, in hopes that it would foam up.  It didn’t.  Fancy Schmancy—I didn’t like it.

[5]      Thanks to my new job, I have tripled the amount of caffeine I drink in a day.  Fresh brewed coffee all day long, plus a QT or Mickey D’s within .25/mi for iced tea.  Holy smokes, this is not good for my system!

[6]      For six years I was a loyal American Idol watcher and when they announced all of the changes last year I said I would not watch knowing this would not hold true. I can honestly say that I did not watch one entire episode all year.  It felt like I was betraying a friend at first but now that all is said and done, I was happy to have one less show to watch.        

[7]      I love milk; skim, whole and everything in between.  I only buy skim (and sometimes 1%) because I will literally drink huge glasses of it if I have anything else and it is just not worth the calories, in my opinion. 

So there you have it—seven [very random] facts about yours truly.  It is now my honor to pass this award along to some other bloggers:

  1. I HAVE to make the bed before I go to sleep too! To me, it feels dirty for some odd reason if I don't make it before I go back to bed. Strange I know.

    Can't wait to see the new hair do! I bet it looks fabulous :)

    Thanks for the award, too sweet of you! :)

  2. Thank you so much! :)

    I am the same way about shampoo. I had that happen to me one time at a hotel and it drove me CRAZY and it would not clean my hair! Ugh! And, I'm a milk addict as well. I'll drink it with just about anything!

  3. Ummmmm you MUST provide a picture of this hair!!! And weird but I too can't stand it when shampoo doesn't lather right! Annoying. It's no wonder I go through so much shampoo!

  4. I am the same with my bed! too funny. Congrats on the award! :) Your blog is super cute!


I would love to hear from you ... Don't be shy :)
