My First Blog Award!

24 Oct

I was so excited when I checked my blog this morning and saw that I’ve been nominated for my very first award! Thank you so much P&F for nominating me. . .

The Rules: When you receive the award, you post 11 random facts about yourself and answer 11 questions from the person who nominated you. You pass the award onto 11 other blogs (make sure you tell them you nominated them!) and ask them 11 questions. You are not allowed to nominate the blog who nominated you!

Also, make sure the blogs you chose have 200 or LESS followers!

So, here goes. . .

11 Facts About Me:

[01] I am 26 years old

[02] I have travelled to: London, Amsterdam, Paris, Cozumel, Canada

[03] I have always lived in Virginia, but I’m moving to Washington State in August 😉

[04] I really love reading, writing, painting, and exploring

[05] My favorite movie of all time is The End of the Affair (the book is amazing, too)

[06] My favorite book of all time is God Shaped Hole (The Great Gatsby & Catcher in the Rye are close seconds)

[07] Michael Jackson died on my birthday… so sad 😦

[08] Right now I don’t own a car, and I really love not having to pay for gas or insurance

[09] I got my motorcycle license in August, and I really really want my own bike

[10] I have a ton of tattoos: a Space/Halloween-themed sleve, a mermaid, the HRC symbol, the Alpha & omega symbol, the lyrics to “Imagine”, the tree from The Giving Tree, a henna inspired flower, and a really embarrasing tramp stamp (freshman year of college… so typical)

[11] I wear cardigans 90% of the time, year round

11 Answers:

[01] Why did you start this blog?  I originally started a lifestyle blog 3 years ago, but decided to start over with this one because I wanted the focus to be more on things I am creating. I want to eventually support myself through a furniture buisness, and I thought this would be a good way to display some of my work.

[02] What is your best quality? I think my best quality is that I am extremely loyal. I only let a close few in, but those people I can honestly say I would do anything for.

[03] Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Hopefully in Washington State or somewhere on the West Coast running my own buisness. I really hope by that time I’ll be a mother and homeschooling my kids, too.

[04] What makes you laugh? Thinking about when me and my boyfriend went camping together, and he read one of his comics to me and did each of the voices differently! Also, anytime I think about the ridiculous things me and some of my friends did in college, I can’t help but laugh!

[05] If you could be an animal, what would you be and why? I have no idea. Probably my dog, Pete, because he’s pretty spoiled and I would love to sleep all day rather than go to work!

[06] If you had to write about something completely different in your blog, what would it be? Probably Movie Reviews, because I love movies and I’m always watching them.

[07] How would you describe your everyday style? Haha… some people would say “Grandma-Chic” because I’m always wearing cardigans… probably a mix of bohemian and classic.

[08] What is your favorite meal? Pizza. No doubt. Orrrr Sushi.

[09]  Sweet or Salty? Salty… I really love chips and french fries. Ha!

[10] Would you free hug on the street? Sure?

[11] Do you collect anything? Empty wine bottles.

11 Questions:

[01] What’s your favorite thing about blogging?

[02] What 3 things could you never leave your home without?

[03] How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?

[04] What is your biggest pet peeve?

[05] If you could pick any super power, what would you choose?

[06] Describe yourself in 3 words.

[07] What quality in yourself do you hope others see in you?

[08] Would you rather live at the beach or in the mountains?

[09] If you had 3 wishes, what would they be?

[10] Would you rather go camping or sleep in a hotel?

[11] Do you like taking risks or playing it safe?

When Smoke Clears, Sweet Little Thang, Homemade Delish, Homemade With Mess, Illustrated Bites, Hummus & Yoga, Suzy Krause and the Skyscrapers, The Weekend Island, Simply Sarah, Anticipation, A Blessed Unrest

Good Luck!!
