A Stylish Blogger Award?!

Well, my blogging slump is officially over and I am completely rejuvenated and happily ready to tackle my blog as well as comment on other people's blogs again. This week I've really been able to brainstorm blogging ideas and I think I've gotten some good things out there.

Last night I discovered that I received an awesome blogging award from my real life and blogging friend "M" at
Misadventures of M: Dating & Other Shenanigans. Yay! This definitely made my day and inspired me to keep up with this blogging stuff. Thank you M! I wish that I could give this award back to her as I love her honest and hilarious take on dating through her blog. She really cannot get more real and true. I especially love that I feel like she is sitting right there talking to me since I miss my college buddy so much.

Anyway, her post instructed me that in order to accept the award, I need to reveal 7 bits of personal information and pass the award along to 3 other bloggers.

So, h
ere I go:
  1. I wouldn't really describe myself as being stylish or fashionable. I do think that I have my own unique look that's unlike most people. I don't care about labels and I'm in fact struggling a little with carrying around that Coach purse. I'm definitely not afraid of color and I'm good at matching things. Just ask any of the roommates that I've had or any of my friends, really. Thanks to my mom, I can't help but match my earrings, shoes, purse and shirt somehow altogether. Usually it all makes sense.
  2. I'm not the biggest fan of high heel shoes. I love the looks of them and totally respect any girl that can wear the really obnoxiously tall ones out at night. I just can't wear them. My feet were not designed for heels. So, unless I know that I'm just going to a sit down dinner, I won't wear heels. Having said all that, I do own about 8 or so pairs of fun heels. Consider yourself lucky if you've seen me wear one of them out. : )
  3. I spend way too much time on Facebook and I've even thought about closing my account just for awhile. This probably won't ever happen but it's a good exercise to consider doing it. Right?
  4. It's starting to annoy me that some people follow my blog all the time but NEVER comment. Why not? Just say something! It's nice to know that there are people out there reading this stuff. I'm not going to lie, while this is great therapy for me, I also enjoy sharing my thoughts with others and hearing their feedback.
  5. I don't care that this makes me sound like a wuss but I seriously get cold when it's under 75 degrees. For this reason, I probably can never live anywhere but California or Arizona.
  6. Despite being 26 I still have a stuffed dog and monkey sitting on my bed and probably will until I live with a boyfriend. I've had them forever and they have a lot of sentimental value. I also admit that I put them away with people over at my house.
  7. Even though I love a ton of indie bands and up and coming artists, I still love me some good ole fashioned radio pop music too.
And the awards go to:
  1. Leanna @ OMG I moved to NYC- Like my blog, she shares all her adventures in her new big city NYC. It's incredibly random and varied and this is why I always enjoy reading it.
    You never know what you're gonna read about next.
  2. Jill @ Life After College- Her blog reminds me a lot of mine. It's got a little bit of everything for everyone. There's music, there's family and mushy stuff, there's Youtube videos and there's hot pictures of men! What could be better than all of that?!
  3. Newlywed Coach's Wife(I cannot find her name anywhere on her blog!) @ One Mile at a Time- Another fellow new runner so I have to give her support and props! While the main focus of her blog is about her new running life, she still talks about other important life things and I totally appreciate that. She also inspires me with her amazing recent weight loss.
Please go ahead and check out these blogs as they are fun and so down to earth.


  1. I am 23 and still sleep w/ a teddy :) I also put him away when people visit my place. I love reading your blog and am glad to hear you are inspired again.

  2. Thank you!!! I'll be sure to do this very soon.

    My name is Tyly {tie-lee}. :-D

  3. I love them a lot, but just can't ever figure out the right outfit to wear them with.
    I also don't like anything under 75. I think 80ish is the perfect weather. Maybe I should move to Cali!

  4. Congrats on the award! Well-deserved! I am addicted to facebook too :)

  5. Congrats on the blog award!! It's always so nice to realize how loved your blog is. :)

    I did email you about participating in my coffee chats series. It's basically a post where I feature your blog and what you love about where you live and a few photos you might have, and of course, the best place to have coffee in LA. This week starts the third installment of coffee chats so you can see what it's all about. It's low pressure and I'd love to have you participate if you're interested. If you are interested, please feel free to send me an email - meagannorlund(at)gmail(dot)com.
