Sweet Momma St J. over at Grace, Hope, and Frugal things gave me an award last week...
and I'm just now getting around to posting about it! 

1. Thank the person who gave the award to you and link back to them.
How nice is she?! Btdub, you should check out her cute blog! She has the most adorable little girl AND in-laws who live in Canada. Awesome?? Yes! :) But really, I love reading about her down-to-earth self!
2. Tell seven random facts about yourself.

-I'm left-handed {in a very right-handed world!}
-I'm obsessed with carrots. Once I start eating them, I can't stop. Case in point: I just half a bag of baby carrots in one sitting. Nomnomnomnom
-Anne of Green Gables if my favorite movie. And I'm very aware that makes me a nerdy, homely person. And I don't care! Best movie {in three parts!} ever!
-I love to travel. In fact, I've refused to get a new passport since getting married {nearly 2 years ago...} because I can't stand the thought of losing all my stamps! Sad day.
-I need a summer job. Are you hiring? :)
-I kind of hate shopping. Mostly because I'm poor and get EXTREME buyers remorse and always feel like there is a better person or thing to spend my money on. Its kind of an issue.
-I used to be an avid runner. Like lots of miles a day. Then I stopped for awhile and now I'm kicking myself for it! Getting back in shape is a beast!! :)

3. Share the love and pass this award to newly discovered bloggers.
  Gosh, this is hard. I have some some pretty awesome blogs lately! Let me go take a peek at me blogroll...

{aaaand I'm back :D}

Katie is an inadvertent friend of a friend from home. And I love her blog! She has the best style and a precious little girl with the most pinchable cheeks! 

I love Emily's blog! She's so honest and fun :) Aaaaaand she plays a mean game of Words with Friends!!

Gaby is so crafty and creative! I have no idea how I stumbled on her blog awhile ago, but I'm so glad I did. She is always posting her great sewing projects or some loooovely Aussie landscapes. So cute :)

yay for bloggy love :)


Emily said...

Aw!! Thanks Katie. You're so sweet.

I LOVE Anne of Green Gables! Grew up watching it and will make my kids fall in love w/her too. ((what did you think of the 3rd installment? I was disappointed in it. Anne and Gilbert were supposed to be happy not dealing with war, boo!)

I just got so sad!!! I am finally getting around to getting a new passport after getting married (it's been a year!) and I didn't even think about losing my stamps!!! Oh what a sad day :(

getting back into running is the hardest! harder than starting in the beginning because you know how fit you used to be. good luck :)

Katherine Oliver said...

Katie, thank you for the plug and the kind words! You're the best, and I'm so glad we're getting to know one another via the blog world. ;)

I am so jealous of your love for carrots. I just hate them. I eat them every day for lunch (not sure why) and I hate it everytime! Share the love!
