Versatile Blogger Award!

Oh happy day! oh happy day! Oh happy day! oh happy day! That was me singing this while I wrote this post last night. Guess who got another blog award? And guess who gets to dole this out to not one, not two, but fifteen other fantabulous bloggers? That's right, me!
The beautifully blonde Bee over at Preppy Wife Preppy Life awarded me this honor, and I am so happy to pass it along to others. Thanks so much Bee! Make sure to check out her brightly colored and cheery blog.
            As part of this award, I share seven facts about myself and award this to 15 bloggers. Ready?

1. I honestly believe that the world be a better place if everything was pink. (I have very good reasoning behind this.)
2. I am double-jointed in my fingers.
3. The fastest mile I ever ran was 5:55, but that was back in high school.
4. I used to want to be an actress when I "grew up." (I even went to acting camp.)
5. I have a pasta sauce named after me at our country club.
6. My biggest pet peeve is when people crack things (like their backs, knuckles, neck)
7. I've been published, twice.

And the award goes to.....these fun-tastic fifteen:
Ashley at Ashley Brooke
Christy at 25 Before 25
Elizabeth at The Mustard Ceiling
Hannah at 17 Inch Heart
Katherine at Neon Blonde Runner
Kelly at The Maxwells
Lamb at lamb loves
Wegan at What Wegan Did Next...

Happy first day of summer everyone! And be sure to check out these fantastic bloggers!

One of my thumbs is double-joined! I've never met someone with multiple fingers double-jointed! And I AGREE - the whole world would be so, so much better in pink!!

♡ bAs said...

The honor is mine girly! (:

Haha #1 made me giggle & I totally agree! I would also love to hear that pasta sauce recipe. If it's named after you it must be good!

Sundresses and Smiles said...

I can't wait to check out some of these blogs you awarded! I am SO impressed by your 5:55 mile, my best time ever has been 7:43 (not too impressive, ha!). Also- I am super jealous you have a pasta sauce named after you; what's in the Amanda sauce?

And finally, thanks for your sweet comment! I don't know if my life would be exciting enough for a reality TV show, but certainly events like the cupcake catastrophe would cause some laughs!

Ashley Sloan said...

Ohhh congrats lady on the awarrrd! That is so exciting! :) And thanks for your tips on my fedora hehe. If I can figure out the original shape I will be SO happy!!!!

I just got back from vacation and am catching up on all my e-mails, etc., so I'm sorry I'm just now responding.
LOVE your blog and I feel super special for getting a shout out from you :)
I'd love to try that pasta sauce, I bet it's delicious!
