I know it has been quite a while since I've posted, but I wanted to take a little break from my daily chaos that is now my life since school has started, and post my blog awards that I've received over the past few weeks...

The first one I received was

Thank you so much to Same Sweet Girl: Memoir of a Southern Belle and Hillary at a gal and her dog!! Both of these ladies have been so sweet to me... Please hop on over to their blogs and leave them some lovely words, won't you!?

The rules for this award are to list 7 things about yourself and pass the award along to 7 other blogs, so here we go!

1) My closet is the neatest room in my entire house. I have everything organized from sleeveless to long-sleeves, IN COLOR ORDER! If something is out of place, it will drive me nuts until it's put back in order.

2) My skin has a reaction to gold over 14K... You can literally draw on me with a piece of gold and will leave a black mark -- it looks like someone attacked me with a giant marker! I'M SERIOUS!! My lil sis used to think that it was hilarious and play games of tic-tac-toe on my arm.

3) I am now officially a graduate student on on my way to becoming a teacher!! YAY!

4) I love thunderstorms. I used to stand in my parents' driveway, looking out to a cornfield and try to take pictures of lightning -- we would get some dandy storms in Kentucky!

5) As a youngster, I was obsessed with Ancient Egypt. I was probably in 5th or 6th grad when it started. I would read any book about it and watch any movie about it. I even had an entire kit from the Discovery store, complete with blocks to build your own pyramid and some balsa wood to carve a hieroglyphic message!

6) My right eye has started to twitch when I get really stressed-out, and it stresses me even more!! Is this all just part of getting older??? Because IT SUCKS!!!


7) I am a very good student. I graduated from high school #7 in my class and for my undergraduate degree, I graduated Magne Cum Laude with a GPA of 3.8. Here's hoping I can keep up the good work to earn my masters!!!

Now, I'm passing this award on to 7 other lovely ladies:
Alycia @ Crowley Party
Katherine @ Just Lovely

Now my next award was sent to me by the BFF Jess (and previously mentioned) at Polka Dots, Pearls, and Pink... OH MY! She thinks my blog is FAB!! :)

I would like to pass this award on to 5 ladies who's blogs inspire me... I think that they're pretty fabulous too!!

Thank you ladies for taking time out of your busy schedules, sharing your thoughts, feelings, and pictures, and brighting my day!!

I promise I will be back soon... But I'm sure you all can understand the first week of school is never an easy one!!!

Until Next Time,


  1. Can you please come over and do my closet like that?!?! LOL! That's awesome! I have done that a couple times but it only stays that way for a month at the most! YAY for teaching!!!! I'm so excited for you! :) And thanks SO much for the award!!!!!! Have a wonderful day!

  2. Great list! My closet is a disaster right now. It used to be nice and neat, but not anymore. I might get cracking on that tonight. Have a great week!

  9. I organize my closet my like that too! So you're not the only one that feels slightly crazy! Also, love love LOVE white water rafting. Even tried guiding for a while, but it turns out I'm too small to be pulling grown men back into the raft when they fall out. :)
