"It Makes Me Smile Because You Said It Best, I Would Clearly Feel Blessed"

Title: Owl City -

Have I ever told y'all that the bloggin' world never ceases to amaze me? I seriously love it more and more everyday. I've been nominated for 2 awards from 2 lovely ladies I happen to adore and I'm so thankful. Since I'm not that interesting and can't come up with 14 interesting facts, I'm combining these awards, like I did the last time I won 2 awards at the same time. I'm a rule breaker. 8)

So here are the rules:
1. Thank the person who gave you the award
2. Paste the award on your blog
3. Link the person who nominated you for the award
4. Tell 7 interesting things about yourself
5. Nominate 7 bloggers or less
6. Post links to the 7 blogs you nominated

So firstly I received the beautiful blogger award from the gorgeous Elizabeth. Now this lady is super fabulous. She always comments on my posts and always has encouraging things to say. Her blog posts always leave a smile on my face, especially her Thankful Thursday posts. If you have not had a chance to check out her blog, please do now. You won't regret it. Thanks Elizabeth from awarding this to me!!

The second award, Kreativ Blogger, I received from the beautiful Katrina. This girl can wrap you in with her words. Her posts are always eloquently written and I also look forward to reading them. Not to mention her beautiful photography. Make sure you check out her blog too, you won't regret this decision either! Thanks my dear for awarding me!

Now onto 7 interesting things about myself that I haven't mentioned before...

1.) I name my cars. I got my first car in March 2006. His name was Norbert. He was fabulous, used car (only a 2004) that had a sun roof and powered windows. While driving home from work in May someone pulled out in front of me and totaled my beloved Norbert, who I lovingly called Norbie for short. Devastated I was. I ended up getting the same car just an 06 in July and now he is Norbert Jr. I refer to him as Norbie J for short.

2.) I'm the biggest bargain shopper you will ever find. I've been this way since a young age. When I grew up and I was given money to go shopping for my birthday or something similar, I would get as many toys as I could for the money I had. I'm still the same way. If I can get 2 shirts for the price of 1 shirt, I'm going with the 2 shirts. I'm cheap and broke from being a college student. It is a way of life.

3.) Growing up we had birds and hamsters. Most kids get dogs or cats but we were not allowed since we rent our house. We had 6 birds (2 finches, 2 parakeets, and 2 cockatiels) plus multiple hamsters. It started out with my sister getting one. I wanted one so we got another for her and one for me. They told us the 2 new ones were girls... they were wrong. Mine (AJ, from the back street boys) was a little man. There were babies, lots and lots of babies.

4.) I drink water constantly. I'd say it is the most healthiest thing I do. I gave up soda a long time ago. I drink it on occasion when I'm really craving a cream soda (which is the BEST.SODA.EVER). In our house we usually only have water and milk to drink and things to make coffee. Water is my fav and nothing quenches it when I'm super thirsty but it.

5.) My absolute favorite day of the year is my birthday. I'm telling you it is a national holiday. I'm that girl who counts down (122) until it gets here. Everyone keeps saying one day I won't enjoy it anymore, psh they don't know me. I'm one for celebrating for as long as I can. This past year I was still doing things in June (my birthday is in May), it is fabulous!

6.) My favorite colors are pink and black. Pink has been my favorite color since I was little and black was added on when I hit middle school.

7.) I make lists for everything. I have note pads galore so I can make to-do lists, grocery lists, packing lists, homework lists, lists for parties... you get the point. You can tell, I frequently make my posts in the form of lists. It is the cool thing to do. Obvi. 8)

Now to award 7 fabulous bloggers. It gets harder and harder each time I do this! I wish to award everyone because I love all your blogs but this time I tried to award those I haven't given to before! 8)

Happy Friday!!
