The Day That Girl Got An Award

Any Brady Bunch watchers out there? Well, if so, do you remember the episode where Bobby was so sad because he realized he was the only sibling who hadn't won any awards? Well, I'm the female version of Bobby. No, I don't have five over-achieving siblings, I've just never been graced with an actual award....until now.

AV from long-distance loving who I've come to know very well through our blogs and emails, nominated me for The Stylish Blog Award!....This is way better than any sports award and I am completely honored. I seriously talk about my blog "friends" all the time - you guys are the best!

Down to the Rules:  
7 Random Facts About Me - (I know ya'll are excited) ;)
1 - I was born with white blonde hair and magically morphed into a brunette somewhere around age 5 (unfortunately, magical frizziness also came along with those brown locks)
2. - I played piano competively for 10 years but gave it up when I went to college.
3. - I collect celebrity autographs - the walls of my bedroom look like the pages of In Touch magazine - only framed.....I have no idea why I started doing this.
4. I have a serious obsession with chocolate milk - people probaby think i have a passle of lactose intolerant children at home because i buy several cartons of soy milk every time i'm at the grocery store!
5. -  I worked as a "fragrance consultant" at the belk on my breaks from college. This fancy title basically meant that I got spritzed with dozens of different perfumes and colognes every day and went home smelling like a little French Hoo-Hoo. (The Abercrombie Store had nothing on me!)
6. - I LOVE weddings. Like, love them. I have kept a portfolio since I was 12 of wedding things I like. So if you're a bride-to-be and everyone's sick of hearing about your wedding details, holler at a sister- cause I'll chat with you all day long about it!
7 - ok, here goes....I was homeschooled all 12 years! I instantly have to add that I don't have 18 siblings and we never made our own soap and detergent or anything weird like that. Seriously, I know the stereotype that goes along with "being homeschooled" but, I graduated college with a 3.97 (woot) so mama krieger must have done something right. right?! ;)

And now.....the 15 ladies I'm passing this on too! YAY! These are some of my favorite blogs-I love when I open google reader to see they've posted something new!

Oh my gosh, I think we are sisters separated at birth! I had white blonde hair when I was born and it morphed into dirty blonde (almost brown) hair around 5 or 6. I also played piano competitively and stopped in mid high school, something I actually kinda miss.
