Is this thing on?

Whoops!  Apparently I decided to take a blog-cation last week.  This whole not being able to blog at work business is really cramping my style!  I have at least figured out how to read all of yours through Google Reader, but it doesn't let you comment.  Lame.  But I've been keeping up, promise!

In my absence not one but TWO lovely bloggers game me the Stylish Blogger award.  Thank you Mrs. M317 and Jeremy, Censie & Jude!   I'm flattered.  Especially since I've been rocking the wet pony tail and scrubs all week and have been anything but stylish....and my blog still thinks it's Christmas!  But I digress.  On to the award!

The rules?
1) link back and thank the fabulous person who bestowed said amazing award on you
2) share 7 things about yourself
3) award 15 other deserving and great bloggers
4) contact said bloggers to let them know of their award!

Seven things huh?  These lists gets tricky when you've been blogging as long as I have, so if some of these aren't new and mind boggling facts about me I apologize in advance!

1.  I rarely wear makeup.  And by rarely I mean practically never.  I have pretty decent skin and found if I wear makeup on a daily basis, no matter the kind, it causes me to break out.  So I'd rather rock a few natural imperfections on a day to day basis then have a bunch of zits that I'll really need to cover up.

2.  I don't like people to touch my left ear.  I had reconstructive surgery on it when I was 6 or 7 due to a birth defect and had to be completely mummy wrapped for a few weeks while it healed.  Ever since then I have this irrational fear that it's going to fall off.  Now I know this isn't really going to happen, but I still don't like people to touch it.

3. If I were to win the lottery tomorrow I'd quit my job and open a cloth diaper store.

4.  I don't actually buy lottery tickets....but have a laundry list of things I want to do when I win.

5.  If I could go back in time I'd tell 18 year old me not to be so dead set on finishing college in 4 years.  I wish I had done a semester abroad in London, but because of the way my major was structured it would have delayed my graduation by an entire year.

6.  I'm horribly stubborn and have a bit of a jealousy complex.

7.  Creme Brulee is my favorite dessert.  I have the fancy dishes and the little blow torch but I've still never even attempted to make it myself.

So now that you know a little bit more about me, I want to know more about you!  I've decided to tag my 15 newest followers friends.

All right....that wasn't 15, but close enough!

Thanks so much!

Definitely try the creme brulee. Although it's time consuming, it's actually pretty easy to make, and super easy.

Drew's Mom said...

Thanks for the award and the sweet words. I'll be linking back as soon as I get a moment to complete a blog. And I'm totally with you on #3.. never play, but I already have the money spent in my head in case I ever win.. Lol

I would totally open a cloth diaper store, too! There isn't one closer than 30 miles to me and who wouldn't want to play with all the different cute fluff!

Thanks for the award. My husband just had creme brulee for the first time a few weeks ago and became obsessed with making the at home version and he totally would have nailed it if he had bought a torch - instead he tried to use a broiler which did nothing but melt the custard. Fail! And trust me, if he can "almost" do it - the rest of the population could totally nail it! Thanks again.

Thank you for the award - I am always tickled when I find out people actually do read my blog - other than my mother & sister. ;) Yours caught my eye from a friends' blog's sidebar & I always enjoy reading what you have to share!

SweetSpiller said...

Thank you! I love what I've seen of your blog so far!

Brown Girl said...

I never wear make up on the weekends, never, today my mom said I should start wearing at least a little...haha!

Jenni said...

Thanks so much!!!

Congrats on the award and I love the new look of your blog!

I’m the same with makeup and really only wear it when I go out on the weekends. I like to let me skin breathe a little.

The list of what I’d do with my lottery winnings is very long, even though I don’t really play either.
