Today's a big day for me...I'm celebrating my Sweet Sixteen! No, not my actual sweet sixteen (wouldn't that be nice?!?) but my blogging sweet sixteen! I missed my blogiversary in January, so I wanted to do it up in style this month!
To start off the celebrations I wanted to share some presents the dear ole blog has received recently
From Suzanne over at The Card Yard I received the Stylish Blogger Award. Thanks Suzanne!
For this award I need to share 8 things about myself and the pass it on to 8 others:
1. I had a strange aversion to spaghetti until my early 20s when it suddenly passed and now it's one of my favorite foods.
2. My favorite time of the week is early Sunday morning. I love to get up when the house is quiet and have a cup of something warm and enjoy being able to just be.
3. I'm currently working towards a MS in Environmental Policy & Management.
4. I love musicals and can sing a whole slew of songs on demand. For our anniversary my husband is taking me to see Wicked in D.C. I am. SO. EXCITED!!
5. I collect stuffed moose. I have a theory that the plural of moose should be meese, but have yet to convince anyone else.
6. I graduated from West Virginia University and will forever bleed blue and gold.
7. My dream is to one day move to Asheville, NC. My husband and I accidentally ended up there on our honeymoon (that's a completely different story) and fell in love with the city and the people.
8. I have a slight addiction to Vera Bradley. OK, I'll admit it, it's probably slightly more than a slight addiction...
The ladies I'd like to pass it on to are:
1. Debbie at What... me, blog?
2. Becky at The Lakeshore Stamper
3. Jackie at The Scalloped Edge
4. Keva at HowNowBrownKow
