Leg Lamp!

I totes got my first ever award thingamajig! A major award, you guys!

Must be Italian!

B at The Opposite of That has been so encouraging and kind to a know-nothing rookie blogger like me.  Her comments are just slices of fried gold awesome.  Thanks for the award, B!

So this award comes with a little bit of homework.

Here are the rules:
     1.  Copy the award image into a post.
     2.  List 10 things that make you happy.
     3.  Tag 10 bloggers who brighten your day.
     4.  Put in a link to their blogs.
     5.  Notify the award receivers.
     6.  Recipients should link back to the sender’s blog.

Here goes nothin'...

Things that make me happy:

1. My pug, Henry
2. My parents, two of my best friends. I for realz won the parent lottery, you guys.
3. My best friend, Kamielle... for giggling over sappy romance novels with me.
4. Cake... all of it.
5. Daydreaming about my upcoming vacation... I will be on a beach in Jamaica in less than one week!
6. Watching my stories (The Young and the Restless) with my mom everyday.
7. A kicky new nail polish.
8. Cooking and baking for my family and friends.
9. Doing something creative every day.  
10. Zzang! candy bars from Zingerman's.

10 blogs that add some sunshine to my morning coffee:

1. The Sunset Lane - Kari is hilarious, creative, and just a swell broad.  I just love people who GO and DO THINGS instead of always talking about it... and that is exactly what Kari is like.

2. Mama, Love + Style - If ever you need proof that motherhood does not require donning a pair of mom jeans and a Quacker Factor oversized t-shirt, Lindsey is that proof.  

3. Simple Musings - She's open, she's honest, she's funny, and she has a pug.  And her name is Jessica.  We're pretty much a match made in heaven.

4. Poke the Rock - In my dreams I am this funny and creative. It's never going to happen so I just read this blog instead.

5. Mayor Gia - Reading Gia's blog is like reading a really funny picture book for adults. And that's a really good thing.

6. Jen but Never Jenn - Again with the funny and creative ladies! Jen is like if Liz Lemon moved to Canada and tried to be a 50s housewife for 2 weeks.  Also her pantyhose fell down on a busy street one time so we're pretty much soulmates.

7. The Freelancer's Fashionblog - Ulrika is from Finland and she is in a burlesque group and she wears amazeballs vintage clothing and she used to do these great hair tutorials and I just really like her blog. And run on sentences.

8. My Favorite and My Best - Her American Horror Story recaps were pretty much better than the actual show, and now she's doing Downton Abbey recaps and I'm reading them even though I haven't had a chance to watch the show (it's totes on my 'to watch asap' list).  One time her blog was down for like 2 days and I nearly had a conniption.

9. Sweetheartville - I found this blog one day when I googled 'beauty operator' and I found this Oklahoma lady's super awesome amazing blog and her super awesome amazing Etsy store.  I got like 3 Christmas presents for people from her.  You guys, I just love the whole aesthetic of her life.  It inspires me.

10. I Suwannee - Jamie owns this store 'Furbish' in South Carolina, and it's pretty much the store I would own if I ever owned a store (if you know what I mean).  Her style is modern, but not sleek.  It's feminine, but not fussy.  It's just colorful and joyous and fun.


  1. You're not a know nothing! You have to start somewhere, right? Exactly. And I really love your blog, hence the award. :-)

  2. Ahhh Jess!! Thank you so much! You know, we may also be the same person. Because I enjoy baking and I'm dieting and I love nail polish and I also have good hair (mainly just today). Let's be bff's or something!

  3. YES! I am funny...someone thinks I am funny *print screen and frame*

    Thanks sooooo much.

    And I have to agree with 2. (your parents are my parents...eh I mean mine are great too)..of course CAKE and nail polish!!

  4. Hey! Congrats on the award. Poke made me come over here to prove that she actually won something and that people think she's funny!
