Cue the Pageant Face

Oh you know the one: 
Why you ask? 
Because this girl awarded me with the sweetest award and I'm so honored. Michelle is one of my Twitter Besties.....we're planning a meet up real soon! I'm supposed to share 5 facts about me...I know ya'll get real excited when I talk about myself.....

1. I secretly hoped this award was like Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and we'd get to ship around designer jeans since I'm quite obsessed with them. We don't get to share pants but I'm still incredibly honored!

2. I have a weird phobia of open windows. You know when Spring hits and everyone's excited about driving with their windows down and opening their screen porch doors? Not me-I don't so much love it. But I can tolerate it if I happen to be with a windows-down lover....or a claustrophobic dog.

3. Apparently I fidget a lot. I can't tell you how many people ask me on a nearly weekly basis if I'm nervous or if they make me nervous. I hate to burst their bubble that they're making me all butterfly-ish inside....but, I guess I'm (quite literally) just a mover and a shaker ;).

4. I was an intense school nerd. From Jr. High through College through the terror of physics and anatomy and physio, I've only gotten two B's. I graduated college Suma Cum......too bad they don't tell you good grades mean nada in the real world.

 
5. I've had a bag of chocolate chip cookies in my household for 11 days and going strong...I think this might be my greatest accomplishment since mastering the grilled cheese. Seriously, I'm like intensely proud of my self control! ;)



Happy Almost Weekend Lovelies! Hope everyone's staying clear of all this nasty weather.
XO, A

I am guilty of being a fidgeter too...I am always moving my fingers or toes...weird? My husband doesn't like to hold my hand a lot because my fingers are twitching. WEIRD.

while i can keep sweets in my condo for ages and not be tempted i rarely buy cookies and stuff like that. i used to get a treat from the store as a kid and save it, only to find out that my dad ate it!!! my old roomie used to eat my stuff too. irked me huge. the real world is about hard work, but a diploma is also VERY important and shows you'll work hard at learning something. dont fret - just spruce up that resume (i can help btw) and apply EVERYWHERE. employers don't like a diva :) That's my advice as an almost 30 year old university grad with job experience.

Jamie said...

You've got more control than I do over chocolate chip cookes!

jayme said...

count me in with the sisterhood of the traveling pants... or maybe we could change it to kate spade skirt? either way, i want in!

also, 4.0's are cool. i'm a school nerd and a's student too :)

Megan said...

We COULD share pants, but I have no self control with cookies, so my pants would swallow you. Seriously. I type this as I eat oreos.

Ashley said...

I love Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants...of always kept that a secret because one one else I knew liked them! So secrets out now! lol. Girrl, you are better than me to keep those cookies in your house...when it comes to sweets...I will eat it till its gone! :)

Jennifer said...

oooh that is POWER girl! I cant have cookies in the house b/c they are gone FAST! <3 im a snacker! hehe

Can we get a pair of jeans to pass around =) we can find the magic pair when we meet up! <3 hehe
