Awards Galore!

Good Morning, Gorgeous! The lovely Nancy-Lee of FashioCHICsta has graciously given me a plethora of blog awards including the Kreativ Blogger Award, the Versatile Blogger Award, One Lovely Blog Award, and the Stylish Blogger Award! Thank's so much to Nancy-Lee, and be sure to check out her fabulous blog!

As part of these awards, I'm supposed to tell you seven fun facts about myself and forward the award to other deserving bloggers. Since I can't think of seven different facts for each of the awards, I'm going to take the easy way out and give you one list of facts for them all. :)

  1. I take longer to go grocery shopping than clothes shopping! I blame it on the wide variety of options for the same item (curse you, bread aisle)!
  2. I love that my fiance sends me random pictures of cute animals throughout the day because he thinks they will make me smile.
  3. Sometimes when my cat Noodle is sleeping, we pretend we're having a photo shoot for stuffonmycat.com and see who can put the most things on her without her waking up (don't worry, it's only very light, non-dangerous things...like socks)! :)
  4. I can't get enough of Mario's Italian Lemonade (e.g. the best Italian lemonade/ice in Chicago) in in the summer. It's always a favorite place to go when taking a break from school work!
  5. I am so excited about my new Etsy shop that I keep checking it every other hour to see if I have any messages, or even better, sales!
  6. We get to take our first visit to a possible wedding venue this weekend! I will do my best to take photos for you all to see!
  7. Due to the extreme heat as of late, my beautiful plants on my balcony (see this post) are really struggling. :( Hopefully they can make it through another week of heat!

Also, instead of picking seven blogs for each of these awards, I'm just going to award my entire "favorite blogs" list, which includes:

All Swamped in Flowers - Archives Vintage - Audrey Allure - The Average Girl's Guide - Bijou & Boheme - Blonde Bedhead - Bon Bon Rose Girls - Cake Wrecks - CC Loves... - Chic 'n Cheap Living - Chicago Quirk - Chicago Street Style - ChiTown Fashionista - Couture Carrie - Curly in the City - Curvatude - Defining Tabitha - Defying My Closet - The Embellished Life - The Fabulous Life of the Not-So-Rich & Infamous - FashionCHICsta - Feather Factor - Fierce | Fabulous | Fit - Glam Kitten's Litter Box - I Look Good Today - Modanista Junkie - Ms. Eggplant's Chronicles - Oh To Be a Muse - Peppermint Lips - Pink Beauty Bliss - Real Girl Glam - Red Lip Gloss -  Sartoriography - Scribble from Emily - Selective Potential - Smart n Snazzy - Teresa: Life & Style - This Free Bird - Thriftaholic - Tick Tock Vintage

I hope you all have a great day! Thanks again to Nancy-Lee for all these fun awards!

  8. you are the sweetest! Thanks for mentioning me... I have a WAY overdue post sitting in my drafts on a very similar topic. However, no cat to talk about (hysterical site, never even thought about that!). ANd, I'm a grocery shopping time-slips-away addict as well.
