Well, here it is...Monday again!!! I hope y'all had great weekends and I am excited to read about them! We had an AMAZING trip to Alabama this weekend and a FABULOUS time at the concert. I can't wait to tell y'all all about it tomorrow!! But today I need to get some awards passed out!

The first one is from Charlotte @ The Charlotte Observer. Thanks girl!!!!! I just found out she makes cupcakes too and I am begging her to post some pictures!!!! We love cupcakes!

The rules for this award are to thank the person who gave you the award, share ten things about yourself, pass this award onto ten bloggers who you recently discovered and think are fantastic and finally contact the bloggers to let them know you’ve picked them for an award.

Ten Things About Myself......
(I try not to repeat myself so if any new followers want to check out my other lists you are welcome to!)

1. My 4 year wedding anniversary is on July 29th!!! I don't usually follow the traditional husband would be rather disappointed if I presented him with linen. ;)

2. I get irritated and mean when I get hungry.

3. I have EXTREME motion sickness. I get sick just watching anything spin around, I can't ride in the backseat of cars, swings at the park make me want to throw up, rollercoasters mess me up for about a week after riding them (which I don't do anymore) and sometimes I get motion sickness from walking for goodness sakes. LOL

4. I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up.

5. I took gymnastics for a while when I was younger. I loved the floor and the uneven bars but I was scared to death of the vault.

6. The first trip my husband and I took together while we were dating was to a little cottage in the mountains and he took me snowboarding. It was my first time and it was so much fun!! We try to go back as often as possible but we are getting old now. Hahaha! :)

7. I'm extremely terrified of ghosts. When I was younger I just knew ghosts were in my room and I would cry myself to sleep every night. I's pitiful.

8. Speaking of ghosts, the house we lived in when I was about 8 was haunted. The toilet would flush at a certain time every day, my sister saw a white figure leaning over her bed sometimes, we could hear people walking up and down the stairs at night and we found out after we had moved that the parlor downstairs had been used as the wake room at funerals a long time before. Creepy right?!

9. I often eat pizza and sandwiches with a fork.

10. It's a family tradition to go to the Wooly Worm Festival in Banner Elk, NC every year. I've been going since I was little and I won't give up that tradition for anything. I won first place in the wooly worm races only once and it was in 2007. I'm pretty proud of that!!

I'd like to pass this award along to:

The next award is from Cafe' Bellini. Thank you so much sweetheart! I have to apologize for continually butchering your name but I haven't figured out how to put the little mark on top of the E yet. LOL

I'd like to pass this award along to:

The next award came from Cool Gal @ It's the World I Know. I swear EVERY SINGLE TIME I read her blog name I sing "Cause it's the world I know" from that song by Collective Soul and it gets stuck in my head!!! Hahaha. :)

In order to accept the award, I have to do the following:

*Share where I think I'll be in ten years.

*Give the award to ten bloggers.

Where do I hope to be in ten years?

Well I answered this before and I feel the same way, however I feel like I should come up with something different!! I hope to have perfectly clear skin in 10 years!!!!! :)

I'd like to pass this award on to any blogger who hasn't received it yet!!!

And the last award came from Kate @ The Cow Jumped Over The Moon. THANK YOU KATE!!! I think this award is hilarious and I'm so excited to have it bestowed upon me! :D

Here is what you have to do:

Choose five fictional crushes and blog about them: you can use characters from books, movies, TV shows, etc, etc. You then pass the award on to another five bloggers.

Well, this is going to be EASY! LOL Here goes...


Michael Weston on the television series, Burn Notice. Have y'all seen this show??? It's AMAZING!!! It's set in Miami and Michael is a burned spy who is trying to figure out who burned him and helps people to make money in the process. It is sooooo good and Michael is super hot in it. Not just his looks but his personality. He's great...sigh...Oh and husband knows. ;)

Number Two:

Phil Wenneck in The Hangover. I LOVE Bradley Cooper in this movie. His looks of course, but also his attitude. It's so sexy!!! I heard they were coming out with a Hangover 2 and I CAN'T WAIT!

Number Three:

Mike Chadway in The Ugly Truth. Actually, Gerard Butler is amazing in ANYTHING he does...but I love him in this particular movie. This movie is extremely vulgar and really surprised me but it's hilarious and actually a really good movie despite all that.

Number Four:

Rusty Ryan in Ocean's Eleven. How could you not?! Like with all of my choices, it's not just's attittude. LOVE!!!!

Number Five:

Luigi Mario in Super Mario Bros.. Now, I know I wasn't the only one crushing on him in this movie right??? I haven't seen this movie in a long time...I really need to watch it again!!! :)

I'd like to pass this award along to:

I can't wait to see y'alls crushes!!! :)


  1. Congratulations on all of your awards!
    Thanks for passing one on to me! I love it!

  2. Oh and I am dying to know how your oil cleansing went!

  3. Fun!
    2. same way!!!
    3. same way!!! People think I am crazy about cars because I get so sick. I am always the driver!!!
    5. vault was super scary to me too!
    7. I am terrified to this day! I don't even like ghost movies or those ghost shows because I am convinced if I watch them then I am going to invite them in! Isn't that pitiful! My mama always said people that dwell in that stuff are the ones that they target to make me feel better when I was little, but to this day I just don't even think about it just in case! Pitiful, pitiful!
    9. people think I am weird for doing this, but I pretty much always eat sandwiches and pizza with a fork...unless its like a PB&J or something.

  4. Have you ever been tested for vertigo? Since you have extreme motion sickness? Or your ear's equilibrium? Fluid in the ear, etc. Congrats!

  5. Thanks for the award girl! You know I have a ton of fictional crushes I would love to blog about! I don't know how I'm only going to pick 5! We have even more in common after reading the 10 new things about you list! I totally get motion sickness like crazy, people don't even talk to me when I'm hungry, and I took gymnastics for years!! I loved the bars and floor too, and was terrified of the vault (I would always fall on my face) and the balance beam! I had a balance beam in my backyard but I never was any good!

  6. Ah, thanks for the award! Love it!

    Also love Bradley Cooper and Brad Pitt in anything. Absolutely ever character they've ever played.

    My mister gets really irritated and angry when his stomach starts to growl. It's a standing joke in our house. Whenever he's moody, I'll just say, "Are you hungry." LOL!

    I use Tazorac for my face (from Derm). I use it for wrinkles, but it was originally prescribed for acne. I have been known to get breakout from time to time, so for me, it kills two birds with one stone. Fights the acne and wrinkles. It is one of the best products in my opinion. Good luck with all that skin stuff. I'm sure it's not that bad, but I know exactly how you feel.

  7. OMG! Did you know that my 4 yr anniversary is also on July 29th! Freaky! We got married here in Houston and it was the best day of my life!

  8. Again you're too sweet. I HAVE GOT TO DO AN AWARDS POST! little time.

    I'm in love with Bradley Cooper too. SO HOT! :)

  9. Thanks for passing one to me, we have so many things in common, lol! Hope you had a lovely weekend :)

  10. Congrats on all your great awards and thank you for mine! When I'm hungry I become bad-tempered too! Fascinating story about the ghosts though...

  11. Those awards are awesome! I'm still kind of new to the blog circles, even though I've been blogging for a while. I'm trying to make more blog friends. lol. I'm lame. Anyway, our wedding anniversary is right around yours - July 25! Yay! I'm thinking of fun, quirky anniversary ideas since it'll be our one year. Also.... I'm OBSESSED with cupcakes. Now, I'm more of a cupcake connoisseur rather than a cupcake/pastry chef, but I could start trying! I've always been a good cook but not that great of a baker... who knows, your recipes look great and I might try them! Come give me a gander if you please. Love your blog. -Meg @

  12. Congrats on your awards...I am SO SO SO behind on my awards post!! :o)

  13. Congrats on all the awards! I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up either! ;)

  14. So many fun awards! I still don't know what I want to be when I "grow up" either :) Love your crush choices...Michael Weston is a cutie!

  15. I laughed out loud at your list of crushes!!! Except for #5, who I've never laid eyes on before, your list is literally identical to mine!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE me some Michael Weston!!!!!! Too funny!!!!!

  16. Girl, you are too sweet!!! This will be the perfect topic for my Fridays Five Favorites! Thanks for the award - you made my day!
