Blogger Award!!!

Today is a special day folks! I was given my first ever blogger award! Many hugs and thanks to Becca at A Blonde's Logic for nominating me! I couldn't be more tickled. I started this thing as a way to practice my writing and to think more creatively instead of just sitting in front of a television set (oh and hopefully to one day inform the fam about my wedding planning/baby havin' news) but *gasp!* y'all actually read this! Thank you so much Becca and all my other followers for putting a great big smile on my face! 

Official Rules of The Award:
- Thank the award-giver and link back to them in your post.
- Tell your readers 7 things about yourself.
- Give this award to up to 15 recently discovered bloggers.
- Contact those bloggers and let them in on the exciting news.

Whew.. okay, only 7 things about myself? That's a toughy..

1) I am not a morning person. I am actually far from it. Calling me a night owl would be putting it lightly. I can literally force myself out of bed at 8am for work and be exhausted all day until it's actually time to go to bed.. then I won't fall asleep until 3-4am. 


2) My family is the most important thing in this world to me. People make fun of me for wanting to live around my small town forever.. but my whole family is here and it's N.C. we have a coast, piedmont, and mountain region..& the TARHEELS what's not to love?

3) This is sad, but true.. I didn't believe in love until I met Andrew. I thought everyone just settled.

4) I want to be an event planner one day. I don't think I will be happy doing anything else. But with the economy the way it is I might have to settle and that literally scares the crap out of me.

5) I am obsessed with arts and crafts. I don't do them nearly as much as I used to but give me some thread, glue, glitter, and paint and I can be entertained for hours.. I could literally live in a Michaels and be happy as a clam. I am not sure if I will ever grow out of that!

6) I love to travel. And eat. And eat while traveling. Last summer I went all over Europe with my best friend Grace but I am dying to go to either Greece or New Zealand in the near future.

New Zealand

7) If someone told me I had the option of never getting to read a book again or never getting to watch television again, I would without a doubt smash my TV set in. I love reading. Right now I am currently finishing The Help. I only have a little bit left to go which is perfect since the movie comes out on Wednesday [soo excited!].

Those 7 things weren't too tough to come up with.. but now is the hard part.. finding only a few lovely ladies to share this award with!
If you haven't checked these girls blogs out, you definitely should! I am an avid reader of each and every one of them!
