First Things First...

Happy Independence Day everyone!!!

I hope that you all hada fabulously fun, and safe weekend filled with cook-outs, family, sunshine, and appreciation that we live in freedom. Annnnnd...

I got another award!!! And before I sit down to post allllll about anniversary activities and summer's goings-on, I must thank the lovely ladies who thought of me for this wonderful prize!!

Ms. Emily Ann over at
My Heart Shaped Life and Leslie at Life in its Ordinary Form sent this my way! Thank you so much ladies!!! If you haven't visited these gals blogs before, you must do so!! Both are super-fun reads!

So what's an award without some rules? These are pretty simple...
Thank the person who gave you the award, share ten things about yourself, pass this award onto ten bloggers who you recently discovered and think are fantastic and finally contact the bloggers to let them know you’ve picked them for an award.

So Here we go!


1. UP! is one of my all-time favorite movies.

2. I have a Great Dane named Maddie, and 2 solid black cats named Max and Morgan who are mother and son. They are all the absolute sweetest things, and I can't imagine life without them.

3. Speaking of pets, I had a cat named Oreo as a child. He lived to be 17 years old, and he was the best cat EVER. He would follow you around like a dog, he would drool when you pet him, he would jump in the car and want to go for rides, and when I would come home on breaks from college, it was like I never left because he would never leave my side. :)

4. Growing up, I also had a black lab named Shadow. She was so sweet! Shadow actually found us, crawling out from underneath the deck one summer and never left. She loved to go for rides in the back of the truck, swim, and run in the snow... She almost looked like she was actually smiling when she would get to play in the snow!! She only lived to be 7 though because she had cancer. Gone waaay too soon.

5. I HATE tomatoes, but LOVE ketchup. I'm weird, I know.

6. I am a procrastinator to the n-th degree! Now that I'm back in school, its hitting my full-force. I just cannot make myself write a paper more than a day before its due! NOT FUN when you have to stay up almost all night to get it done. And I know I do it to myself, but it's just the way I've always been. But I will say, it was much easier to stay up late the first time through college!!

7. John Mayer is my favorite. The End.

8. I actually enjoy mowing the yard and doing yard work. I think its probably more that I like the way it looks when I'm done, but this makes A.B. and very happy boy!

9. I really, really, really like orange juice. I always have and I'm sure I always will... Sometimes, I'll want orange juice more than I want water! Deeee-licious!

ANNND 10. As much as I wanted NOT to like them, I really enjoyed reading the Twilight Saga books. I picked up the first one after a long protest, just to see what they were all about, and I was hooked from then on out. I think I read New Moon in about 2 days, and the same for Eclipse and Breaking Dawn. Needless to say, I'm excited to go and see the Eclipse movie with my momma tomorrow!

Now as for the 10 lovely ladies that I pass this awards to... These are the 10 newest blogs that I have been introduced to, and am loving getting to know through their posts.

Kate @ Hoosier in Pearls

sLe @ Pearls, Curls, and a Southern Girl

Liz @ Savvy Seasons

Ally @ He's Still Got the Whole World in His Hands

Ally Rae @ The Cure for Writer's Block

Sydney @ Navigating Through the Quarterlife with a Smile and Open Arms

Holly @ A Cajun Belle

Melissa @ Sweet Melissa

Jesslee @ Just Because...

Ang @ Short Southern Mama

  1. Thanks for the award! I really, really like OJ too and I tried really hard to NOT give in to the whole twilight thing, but LOVE it now!

  2. Do let us know what you think of Eclipse! I heard that it's the best movie among the 3 but we'll see!:)

  3. I am obsessed with orange juice! Anytime I buy any, I usually drink it all as soon as I get it home, lol! Up is one of my favorite movies, too!

  4. Yay for Awards!!! Thanks so much! Have you gone on your anniversary trip yet? I love Savannah -I think one of my favorite things (besides the food of course) is taking a dolphin tour -they are so cute!

  5. We've started Up twice and end up getting distracted or falling asleep. Note to self -- must finish this movie! Have a great week.

  6. Congrats on your award girl!!!! I loved UP! too!!! I cried like a baby though!

    Make sure to enter my Stella and Dot giveaway when you get a chance!!

  7. Love your pet pictures! I had to learn to like tomatoes...and I still won't just eat them the way some people do (on a plate, w/cheese, etc...I have to put them in a salad or on something). Also love orange juice...but I rarely drink it at home. Weird, I know! :)

  8. Congratulations on your award! I LOVED Eclipse! Hope you enjoy it!

  9. just found your site && I left you something on my blog! :)
