Hey, I Won an Award!

So the lovely Kimberly from Fab Finds Under $50 (one of my daily reads as you know) awarded me with a Stylish Blogger Award.  Considering I've never won any awards, I'm pretty stoked.  (Do people still use that word? I hope so.)  With the award, I'm supposed to reveal 5 fun facts about myself, then pass the award along to 5 other bloggers.  

So, here goes:

1. I am an ice cream fanatic.  I eat it at least three times a week, sometimes everyday.  And more often than I'd like to admit, I have ice cream instead of a normal meal.

2. I'm not sure if this is a fun fact, but I'm hoping others can identify with it.  I changed my major 5 times in college, started one grad school, culinary school, finished at a different grad school, all to end up still not knowing what I want to do with my life.

3. I come from a family of HUGE Beatles fans.  My middle name is Lennon.  I had a dog named Penny Lane, and my dog Ellie's name is short for Eleanor Rigby.  And I'm going to go see Paul McCartney in concert (for the 2nd time) this month! 

4. I'm really weird/anal about my planner.  I write using a specific color for each day, and I refuse to use an electronic version.  Sorry trees!

5. My friend Becky and I plan to start a cooking blog in which we cook food from every country in the world.  We've started the cooking part (Afghanistan and Albania so far) but not the blog part.  We're having a hard time coordinating our busy schedules, and picking a name! (Any suggestions?)

Okay, those are my facts, now for the bloggers I'm passing this award on to (hard to pick just 5!):

Kimberellie (love her fun style!)
Off of Broadway (always chic in vintage!)
A Pretty Penny (she makes shopping on a budget look good!)
Euphoric Agony (on a mission not to shop for a year--talk about master remixer!)
What Would a Nerd Wear (because I'm a nerd too)

Thanks Kimberly for the awesome award!

  1. "more often than I'd like to admit, I have ice cream instead of a normal meal."---LOL!!! Love this!

    And CRAZY about the Beatles mania! That is too funny. Yours would make a good fictional family for a quirky movie, I think! That is so much fun.

    oh and THANKS for the award! Stylish blogger, moi? Okay. ;-)

  2. I liked your five facts! Especically number 5! Whatdya say we get cookin' this weekend--Algeria style?!


I really appreciate hearing from you!
