Beautiful Blogger Award

beautiful-blogger_awardGuess what? I was nominated for the Beautiful Blogger Award by Arlene at Puffing Colors. My favorite thing about Arlene is that she loves bears, because bears are my favorite. She even has a tag “cute bears”. I don’t even have that!

Four short rules: link the blogger who nominated you; list seven random things about yourself; nominate seven creative, beautiful bloggers; notify the people that you nominate

***Seven random facts***

1. I am so proud of the fact that I can change my own tire on my car, but I recently crashed it and was unable to get the spare out of the trunk because it was screwed in so tightly. Epic fail. All that pride for nothing, still had to call a tow truck.

2. I just found out today that yellow peonies exist. Umm. I must have them. Next year during peony season I will find them. I swear.

3. Every time I go to the zoo, I visit the black bears twice. Sometimes I make up excuses, sometimes I just tell people that we have to see them again and run toward them like a five year old 🙂

4. I am actually very morally opposed to zoos. However, I am a hypocrite on this issue because I cannot resist the animals. Someday I may work this out in my head.

5. I dye my hair much darker than it is, and my eyebrows don’t match. I will pretty much not even leave the bathroom without putting on brow powder. It’s a bit of an addiction. One time I couldn’t get to my apartment because of police roadblocks after my shift waiting tables and I really needed a shower. What did I buy at the store? A new outfit and brow powder…

6. I love fresh cherries, and they are my favorite summer snack. Well, except cocktails and ice cream, but those feel much less virtuous.

7. My favorite colors are yellow and pink.

Check out their blogs, and, if you’re in the Pacific Northwest, go find some air conditioning! This is all too much for me right now. I’m hiding inside with my ice water and my portable air conditioner.


Creative Blogger Award

creative blogger awardSo… Ari likes my blog enough to nominate me for the Creative Blogger Award! Yay! I find this very exciting, because Ari is very cool (and, incidentally, some sort of Twitter genius). I like her blog because it’s a random lifestyle blog, like mine. She talks about anything and everything, and is fun to read.

Here’s the spiel:

  • Nominate 15-20 blogs and notify all nominees via their social media/blogs
  • Thank and post the link of the blog that nominated you
  • Share five facts about yourself to your readers
  • Pass these rules on to them

Here are my facts~

  1. If you can get close enough to my face without getting hit, you can see that I have a wavy scar across my top lip. I fell down with a whistle in my mouth when I was four, and my mom had to pull it out of my lip and rush me to the hospital. They decided against stitches so as to not “mar my beauty”. Ah, the hilarity…
  2. I can juggle. I even used to be able to juggle with a ball, a rock, and an apple and eat the apple while juggling- but I am not sure I could still pull that off.
  3. My sister is my best friend. We even have matching tattoos. (ps she just got an A in her psychology class and she thinks that belongs on my blog. Check it out, C-Bear, here it is!)
  4. I don’t believe that blood is thicker than water. I have five siblings, only one of which is blood related to me. They are all still my family.
  5. I was attacked by a dog when I was six or seven. It drug me down the street until we got to my house, and then my dog ran out and saved me. I was afraid of dogs for years, but now I love them and have completely forgiven them all.

The 15 bloggers that I want to hear five random facts about 🙂

Happy reading and happy Friday!
