awards make me smile.

The lovely lady in charge of A Journey Through the Waiting Game presented me with an award today. Thank you so much girl! I'm always so excited to get getting these blog awards. I never thought in a million years I'd have 1 follower, let alone 52. So thank you all for your support, kind comments and for hanging with me!

To accept this Over the Top award I must answer these questions and then pass the award on to 7 other bloggers. So here goes...

1. Where is your cell phone: In my purse, and probably dead.

2. Your hair: Is up in a sloppy bun - I'm embarrassed to say this is a norm right now - I need a hair cut in the WORST way.

3. Your mother: was one of the most talented women I've ever met. I miss her so much.

4. Your father: is my rock. I would be lost without him.

5. Your favorite food:Chicken wings and pizza - as well as most Italian and Chinese food.

6. Your dream from last night: I don't recall a single dream last night.

7. Your favorite drink: Water and the crack that is Coca Cola Classic (I'm trying to stay away from it, and the battle is a losing one). And honestly... after a rough day nothing beats an Ice Cold Beer or a cocktail mixed with Captain Morgan.

8. Your dream/goal: To be the best I can at what I do, and to lose all the weight I've gained since moving here to the South.

9. What room are you in: my office/woman cave.

10. What is your hobby: As of most recently cooking and baking. Now that the woman cave is set up, I hope to get back into all the other hobbies I love so much.

11. What is your fear: Aliens. Yes, I know it's irrational, but they freak me out. Have you ever seen Fire in the Sky? You'd understand if you did.

12. Where do you want to be in 6 years: Hopefully married, owning a home and a continued career in graphic design, and children, maybe? (Checks biological clock).

13. Where were you last night: At home, hanging with M and the pets.

14. Something you are not: Prissy. Not in the least. I burp like a man but I dress like a woman - I'm a riot at parties trust me. I do know how to behave like a lady when needed but it's much more fun running with the boys from time to time.

15. Muffins:Blueberry!

16. Wish List items.: New camera! New Mattress! New Running Shoes! (For the NEW BODY!)

17. Where did you grow up: Mt. Airy, Maryland.

18. Last thing you did: Designed a business card.

19. What are you wearing: jeans, a brown sweater and brown boots.

20. Your TV: Is flat and pretty and bright!

21. Your pets: June Carter Cash the Wonder Mutt and Angus Young O'Malley (Add tons of other Irish names) the Rock Kitty!

22. Your friends: Are the family I've chosen for myself and I love them. They rock!

23. Your life: is chaotic and trying at times but with M by my side, my friends and family it's always a welcomed journey and worth living and loving every minute!

24. Your mood: happy.

25. Missing someone:  My mom... and My dad and friends back East.

26. Vehicle: Jeep Cherokee "Snowman" - Yes after the trucker in Smoky and the Bandit.

27. Something your not wearing: glasses - I have in my contacts.

28. Your favorite store: Target & Kirkland's have been battling it out for my affection as of lately.

29. Your favorite color: Crimson Red and Carolina Tarheel Blue (as well as green lately).

30. When's the last time you laughed: earlier today.

31. When's the last time you cried: It's been a day or so. One of my friends lost her mother, and another lost her father - I keep replaying my past year in my head and I hate having friends go through this pain that I felt, and I am still feeling.

32. Your best friend: THEY are each unique and I love them with all my heart.

33. One place you go over and over: Walmart and I hate that - We grocery shop there. They have the best prices but the highest annoyance factor, EVER.

34. One person who emails me regularly: M.

35. Favorite place to eat?: Besides eating at home, Ricatoni's here locally and the Flamming Pitt back home in Maryland. Best. Prime. Rib. EVERRR!

Congratulations on your award!

Brittany said...

Congrats on your award! I love this post and getting to know you more! Thank you so much for also awarding me!! Hope you are having a wonderful day.

Leslie @ A Blonde Ambition said...

Congrats on your award! I completely agree with #33. I live in the town that Wal-Mart is based out of, so you can multiply the annoyance factor times 20! Haha!

Thanks for passing this along and for your sweet get well message!

I hope you're feeling better Leslie. Ugh I hate Walmart and honestly we have a few grocery stores here I'd love to shop at but the prices are SO much more. No lie... Rachel Ray EVOO at Walmart is about $6.00, maybe $8.00 max! At the other store I saw it for $10.48!!!! WTF? I know that Wally World is a huge chain, but still... (ps they stopped carrying RR's EVOO, so I've resorted to other brands... lame sauce!)
