I just found out that I got nominated for a blogger award! How sweet it was for Jessica Nicole over at Southern in the City to nominate me. I have only been blogging since the beginning of the summer.  I am so glad that I decided to join the blogger world because I seriously get a lot of enjoyment out of reading your posts or seeing your comments.

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.

Seven things about myself....yikes...here goes nothing.
  1. I have two dogs...named "frank" (wiener dog) and "Beans" (golden retriever). We got poor beans second but we had picked the name before we found out she was a girl. We thought the name frank & beans was so cute though that we went with it anyway. So...I give her a pink collar since her name is misleading.

   2. I LOVE VOLLEYBALL...I hate when people who have no idea how to play ask me to join a game though. I mean there is some skill involved and there is a goal other then to just slap it over the net. Unorganized volleyball drives me nuts! I want to see a BUMP....SET...SPIKE!

 3. I read books like its my job. So far this year I have read 44 Books since January! I love it. I recently got yelled at though for reading the end of a book on the freeway while driving to work. I honestly do not remember the end of the drive.
lesson learned= don't answer when husband asks when you had time to finish the end of the book! Its a trap.

4. Turns out after years of denial that I can finally admit that I am a morning person. I swear if the clock strikes midnight and I'm not fast asleep in bed I turn into Grouchy CINDERELLA. My friends always joke when it starts getting late that I better get home or I'll freak out. I always wanted to be one of those people who could hang all night...its just not me.

5. I love to bake! I'm secretly worried that I don't have the self control to no devour all of what I made that I have started turning my efforts toward cooking. Then at least I have someone who will help consume the calories.

  6. I hate to run... I don't get it. Especially on a tread mill. There is no end. It just keeps cycling round a round. I would rather do a million other things than run...mow grass..have a Brazilian wax...Chinese water torture! anything else!

  7. I have never dyed my hair. I have wanted to a million times. First growing up I wasn't allowed. Then I was too cheap. Now I'm too chicken because dark brown is finally popular again! I guess I will just wait till I go grey.

Now...drum roll please...
I am passing this lovely award onto several ladies who's post's I enjoy. One is even my bestie and she does the cutest DIY crafts. Definitely stop by and check them out.

I love reading more about you and that you tagged Krysta from My life in Food! She is one of my favs and is super sweet :)

Unorganized volleyball would be my team..we aren't bad but we def. don't bump set spike everytime we just kind of manage to get by haha we are undefeated though! woo woo

Holly said...

Your dogs are so cute! Haha, I think it's awesome that you read so many books...too funny about the freeway, I would have done the same if I was that into a book!

Krysta said...

Gee, thanks! I am honored to accept your award. Watch for 7 things about me on my site! Oh, and I totally get you on the running thing. I. do. not. get. it. I'm a walker, myself.

Krysta said...

Oh, and I forgot to tell you, I have a chihuahua mix named "Ham" and if we ever get another dog we will definitely correspond names, like from the bible, Japheth (sp?) and Ham, or my daughter is pushing for green eggs and ham (I pity the dog) but my personal favorite is Prosciutto and Ham, because I love Prosciutto!!! And, I think it's funny that they are both some sort of pork and we are mostly vegetarian.

Kristen said...

Ah - you are too sweet, thanks! :)

I have highlighted and dyed my hair. I dyed my hair to get it back to my natural color though bc I love it. Guess it took highlights to realize that. If you ever decide to do anything, I suggest red lowlights. They look great in dark hair and plus they come out on their own so there's no need for re-adjusting your hair color or anything.

And I love to read too. I always feel like such a nerd when I see that I'm the only one reading for pleasure. haha

Kris said...

Awe, thank you so much for the nomination! How sweet! I completely agree with you on loving the blogging community. I have met some amazing, creative and inspiring girls! Also...Go you! It's hard to make time for reading these days so I am totally inspired by all of your reading! I must catch up on mine!
I will be posting my 7 things and keep the award going! Have a wonderful day!
