Beautiful Blogger Award

The lovely Jenny Morris gave me this awesome award! Yay! Thank you, Jenny!

Here are the rules.
1. Thank the blogger who nominated you.
2. Share 7 random things about yourself.
3. Nominate 7 fellow bloggers for the Beautiful Blogger award.
4. Inform the bloggers of their nomination.
5. Include the award images in your blog post.

Alrighty...here goes. 7 random things about myself:
1. I really, really love freshly vacuumed carpets, and laying on said carpets.
2. I got married when I was 21, and everyone thought that I was super young and made it a point to tell me. Obviously, I went ahead with it anyway. It was an excellent choice :)
3. I leave my laundry sitting around in the baskets for days because I hate folding laundry. I also hate putting it away. (My laundry, at this moment, has been sitting around for one day. Let's see how long until I cave.)
4. I used to love cooking until I started writing. Now it's just a freaking nuisance that stops me from writing! Incidentally, I now love baking. Treats are wonderful writing motivators.
5. I crack my knuckles. It's a bad habit that I hate, but I just. can't. stop!
6. I am going to join Lucille Roberts this week. Wish me luck.
7. I hardly ever wear heels because I can't walk in them. At all. I'm one of those idiots you see teetering around on high heels and you think "Why did she even wear them if she can't walk in them?" So yeah, I try not to. :)

And SO. Apparently I'm supposed to nominate 7 fellow bloggers, but seriously, I HATE choosing people for these things! I think everyone is a beautiful blogger! So, anyone who reads this, consider yourself nominated. I know I'm totally cheating, but seriously...consider yourself nominated. I would be delighted if you posted about this and said that I nominated you :)


  1. Ah, I am so happy to find someone else who doesn't mind admitting a love of freshly vacuumed carpets!! When I say that to people, they look at me like I'm a freak!

  2. I agree with, like, half the things on this list! And I always end up buying heels but then never wear them because I just really prefer sneakers, lol.

    1. I only own like two pairs of heels. I feel like I should have more just incase, but whatever. My go-to shoes for cold months are Uggs, and for warm months are flip flops :)

  3. I love clean floors. period. freshly vacuumed carpets or freshly moped floors, the rest of the house might be a complete disaster, but if my floors are clean, the world is alright!

    I NEVER put away my laundry :( it sis in baskets until it's used again. I just hate doing laundry.. or any domestic activities for that matter, LOL

    1. Haha yay, I'm not the only one who leaves the laundry to sit! Such a pain. And you have kids...even more laundry! We just need to get maids or something when we're rich and famous with our mega book deals ;)

  4. Congrats on the award!

    I'm off to fold my two baskets of laundry now... :)

    1. Thanks, Emily! Oh man...have fun with that :) haha

  5. Congrats on your award! I love wearing heels, I don't know why. But I'm sure that you'll get better with practice.


  6. I adore freshly vacummed carpets as well. Vacuuming is my all time favorite household chore. Seriously.

    Laundry and cooking are at the opposite end of the spectrum for me. If I turn on an audiobook, then I can get through those two things. But if not, it's like slow torture.

    And dare I admit that I was 20 when I got married. I like to tell people that it was the month before my 21st birthday just to make myself feel a smidgeon older, lol. But best thing I ever did!
