One Lovely Blog Award


I was nominated by my friend Nina from Flowers in my Hair for the One Lovely Blog Award. She's a sweetheart that I have quickly become friends with. I love her heart, reading her captivating stories, her awesome DIY's and catching her little snapshots around a city I love and that she calls home, Chicago! 




So, what does this award tag consist of? Sharing 7 facts about yourself and tagging 7 other blogs you love to continue it. Here we go, I'm throwing some randoms your way... 

one. I love saltine crackers, always have. I could probably live off of them. 

two. If you've been a reader for a while this isn't news... I won't eat seafood. No, none of it. It has nothing to do with the taste, sea creatures just freak me out. To me it's no different than eating a slimy snake. Nope, I'm good. #im12 (side note- I've met other blogger friends just like me, I'm not alone! I'm working on getting over this, but it's not happening very fast)

three. If I could meet 1 celebrity, it'd be Giuliana Rancic. We're besties, she just doesn't know it yet. In this photo below, she's waving at me.



four. I know the world loves them, but I really do not care for Angelina Jolie or Johnny Depp. So other than the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, I don't watch any of their movies at all. Weird huh? I have no idea why I don't like Johnny but Angelina might have something to do with the fact that Jen A is my 2nd fave celeb in the world. (side note- I literally can't think of 1 other celeb I "don't like" so I promise I'm not just a hater)

five. If you asked me what my dream job would be, it would consist of Nashville, the country music industry, makeup and blogging. If you know of a way for me to combine the 4 and make a living, hit me up. 

six. I might have a girl crush on Fancy Ashley. I mean really, how cute is she?



seven. I hate jackets & coats. I rarely wear them and if I do they HAVE to come off as soon as I get in the car or wherever I'm going. I can't stand to wear a coat in the car, I feel like I'm being strangled, they're kind of torturous to me.

  1. I love Giuliana too, she seems so fun and down to earth. And I feel the same about Angelina & Johnny, never have cared for them. Also, if your dream job has an opening, I'd like to apply ;) thanks for the nomination girlie. Have a great weekend!!

  6. Love Guiliana!! I have seen her and Bill around Chicago a few times. They even lived in my parents building for a while. They are both so sweet and have been through SO much. I really admire their strength. I too love saltines and could eat them every day. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving tomorrow too lady!! :-)

  8. What a fun post to read. I love me some Saltines and think you would ROCK it in Nashville, lady!

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  9. Oh my gosh, YES TO #7! Coats drive me crazy and I absolutely will not wear them in the car! Ugh, why do I live in such harsh winter climate?!
    I could totally see you taking over Nashville like a boss :) That is an amazing dream!
    Loved reading this and getting to know you better!! Happy Thanksgiving!

  10. I am not a fan of Angelina Jolie either! Something about her just weirds me out haha. And I'm the total opposite when it comes to coats - I'd wear them around my house if Nick would let me but it drives him crazy - I just love being warm! Have a happy happy Thanksgiving!

  11. I like saltine crackers too! When I was little, my mom used to make me a plate of saltines with a little cream cheese spread on top. Mmmmm. And I am the same way about coats. They are too bulky and confining! Happy Thanksgiving!

  12. Umm I'm right there with you on the seafood thing girl! Won't touch any sea creature with a 10 foot pole. NO thank you! Ew. Just ew. And you would kill it in Nashville... just sayin!

  14. These are such fun things to learn about you! I love Giuliana. Have you watched their reality show? I got quite obsessed with it for a little while. I used to not like seafood, but living with my husband has slowly changed me. Have a great Thanksgiving!!

  15. I kind of feel the same way about Angelina Jolie! She's a homewrecker. haha. I get what you mean about the sea creatures too. I'll eat some fish, but most seafood - nope. No way. Have a good Thanksgiving lady!

  16. I panic when i run out of saltines.
    Happy Thanksgiving!!!!

  17. Congratulations! Loving all these facts about you! Except for the fact that you won't eat seafood haha! I could probably live off seafood! But I guess if you grow up with your dad being a fisherman you kind of have to like it or you would starve!;) have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  20. Hahaha, I don't like Angelina Jolie either! She just bugs me! Saltine crackers are the best! Especially with peanut butter, YUM!

  22. I love Giuliana Rancic so much! I cant wait to try her new wines! Single serving wine is such a great idea!

  23. Have an amazing thanksgiving! I wish I knew a way to make your dream career come true!

  24. Congrats on the nomination!! I am also an Angelina hater! She is a total home wrecker! But I did like Maleficent. Hope you have a fabulous Thanksgiving!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Loved this! Thank you, thank you for the nomination, friend! Now that I know about the saltine love, I have to ask if you've tried to eat 3 in a minute. We did a challenge at work and I barely could - it is hilarious and super difficult. So next time you're bored... ;) Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  26. I'm totally with you on seafood, except when it comes to sushi. I don't know how that works out but it just does! I'm a big texture eater and so most meat and seafood are usually out of the question, it doesn't really matter what it tastes like. Tyler loves seafood so I'm slowly trying to find something we both like (or at least I can tolerate haha) but it's a definite slow process!

  27. I think we just became best friends after reading this post! I love Giuliana Rancic, I don't care for Angelina either, and a Nashville/country music/makeup/blogging job would be ideal. I hope you have a great Thanksgiving!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Congrats! You absolutely deserve it :) I have to say, I love seafood and snuggling into my jackets lol! We can still be friends though ;)

  32. i can only eat saltines when i'm sick or have imbibed too much, hehe. i'm the same way about coats in the car!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Hahaha you're too funny! I didn't know that you don't eat seafood. You crack me up! I looooove seafood :-p I don't like anything with Angelina Jolie in it either. Only thing I ever semi enjoyed was Mr & Mrs Smith. Thanks for nominating me :) I'll do it....it just may not be super soon :) I hope you had a great Thanksgiving, friend!!

  34. Just this weekend I was thinking of things for my favorites post and thought I had to wait a while to share them-- somehow did not realize it was already the end of the month! Anyway, loved reading this post-- and I'm with you on the Angelina thing-- definitely because of Jennifer Aniston, haha. Though I have to admit I saw an interview with Angelina not too long ago and she was actually really likable in it, which swayed me a little bit more :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Giuliana & Bill is a total guilty pleasure of mine! I liked Johnny Depp when I was younger, but I've been over him for awhile now. Angelina is the opposite for me. I didn't used to care for her when she went through that weird phase with Billy Bob Thornton and the vials of blood and of course the Brad and Jen thing, but she's grown on me and I do really like her.

    Saltines are so good! My grandma and I used to sit around and just eat saltine crackers with butter on them. Oh, and those saltine toffee cookies...Yum!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I know you said you won't try seafood, but girl you gotta! lol Yes shrimp, crabs, clams, and especially mussels, are so gross looking, but they are so yummy!! I hope you're not totally grossed out by this comment, I sorta mentioned a ton of sea creatures haha

    ReplyDelete
