The Adorable Blog Award

Hello Beauties! I'm so flattered today to receive the Adorable Blog Award from Teresa, who's blog "Teresa: Life & Style" is truly one of the most adorable, sweet, and fun blogs I know of! 

The Adorable Blog Award comes with a few rules:
  1. Thank the person who gave you this award, and link back to them in your post.
  2. Tell us 10 things about yourself.
  3. Nominate five other adorable bloggers.
  4. Contact these bloggers, and let them know they received this award.
Again, thanks so much to Teresa for bestowing me with this award. Please check out her blog when you have time. Her wonderful personality really shines through everything she writes!

Next, 10 things about me that you might not know...
  1. When the fiancĂ© and I get a dog, I'm seriously going to push to name it Rice solely for the purpose of having pets named Noodle & Rice.
  2. I was scared of clowns as a child.
  3. I think red lipstick usually looks pretty horrible on me.
  4. I can't wait to have Rahm Emanuel inaugurated as the new mayor of Chicago (in less than 90 minutes)!
  5. I rarely drink soda, but if I do, it's either diet 7-up or gingerale.
  6. My favorite fruits are raspberries, watermelon, and pineapple!
  7. I've always loved to wear dresses, even when I was a little girl.
  8. Although I have super pale skin throughout most of the year, I can get pretty tan in the summer thanks to my 1/8 Native American ancestry.
  9. I love to go on vacation with my family! The last big trip we took was a cruise in the Caribbean- it was so much fun!
  10. Although I've always been really into wine, I've learned a ton about beer in the last couple years thanks to my fiancĂ©, who is also a fabulous home brewer!
Finally, it's mine turn to give this award to five other bloggers. Although this is a terribly difficult task because I know SO MANY fabulous bloggers, I tried to base my decision on blogs that capture the essence of being adorable. These blogs truly are adorable, and are written by super sweet gals who you should totally follow! They are:
