My first blog award!

Thank you to Jules at Chic & Pink for my first blog award!

If you haven't checked out Chic & Pink, you definitely should! Jules posts about tons of fun things and always has fun stories and pictures to share!

The award rules say to list 7 interesting things about yourself and then pass it on to 7 other bloggers. Here are my 7 (hopefully) interesting things:

1. I've lived in Boston for my entire life -except for 2 years where I went to a small liberal arts school in PA.
2. I hate doing the dishes. I avoid it for as long as possible. I really miss having a dishwasher!

3. I'm always cold and keep a fleece blanket at my desk at work. I sometimes even bring it with me to meetings.

4. I'm terrified of the Wizard of Oz. I remember faking sick in Kindergarten so I wouldn't have to watch it. I still can't watch it. Same goes for Willy Wonka.

5. I used to want to move to San Diego. I even toured a college out there when I transferred schools. Sometimes in the winter, I wish I had gone there!

6. I fall into panic mode if I don't have my Blackberry. I actually have two Blackberries (a personal one and a work one) and often carry both with me. I keep both on my nightstand and they are the first things I check in the morning (sick, right?). However, I hate when people use their phones during dinner so I always keep them zipped up in my bag when I dine out.

7. I love dogs. I can't wait to get one of my own. I'm going to get a basset hound and call him "Sherlock Bones."

I'm passing this award on to...

1. Chic and Cheap Living
2. Let the Tide Pull Your Dreams Ashore
3. Tale of a GRITS
4. The Classic Preppy
5. Windy Poplars
6. A Southern Belle "On Paper"
7. Adventures Abroad

I hope everyone is having a great start to their week!


  1. Congrats on your award! I have my fleece blanket around me in my dorm room right now. I am completely attached to my blackberry it does not leave my side EVER. When I was taking one of my finals the other day, I couldn't wait to check it and was thinking about it through the final - sad? I totally understand your obsession even both my parents love their blackberries!

  2. Congrats on your first blog award! I haven't spent too much time in Boston, but my brother in law and his wife live there and they love it! We keep trying to find a time to go visit them and spend more time there!

  3. Congrats and thanks so much for the award. My family had basset hound named Wilson and he was a wild man! xx

  4. Oh my goodness!!! Thank you so much for the AWARD! I'm so flattered! Can't wait to pay it forward .... xoxo

  5. Congratulations on your award! That is so exciting!!! It was also incredibly sweet for you to pass it along to me...I'm so honored :-) Thank you! Oh, and by the way, I LOVE your future doggy name - that is too adorable! Hope you had a great Monday!

  6. Congrats on your first award. It was fun learning some things about you!

    I love dogs, too, and think a basset hound named "Sherlock Bones" is not only adorable, but very creative! So cute!

  7. Congrats on the award and thank you for passing it to me! I love your future dog's name and am going to San Diego in Sept. for my cousin's wedding - you should go too and we'll hunt for great Mexican food. ;)

  8. Hi there! Thanks so much for visiting my blog. I'm looking forward to reading more of yours. Congrats on the award. I've never been to Boston, but have always wanted to. Someday!

  9. Yay! You completely deserved the award and it was so fun to read this.

    I love that you bring a blanket to work. Alice in Wonderland used to freak me out, so I get the Wizard of Oz thing. It’s really easy to get addicted to our technology and I’m kind of the same with my BlackBerry. If I ever leave home without it (which is rare), I get really worried that something will happen and I don’t have my phone.

    Basset Hounds are so cute and I love the name you have picked out. We had 2 (Cecil and Abigail) when I was a baby. I vaguely remember playing with their floppy ears ;)

  10. Thank you for your sweet comment and congratulations on your award! :) PS- I am LOVING pink and green Thursday! xo

  11. That puppy is just the cutest thing!

  12. Congrats on your award. I'm from the Boston area too. I live in NH now (for 2 & 1/2 years). Great blog. I'm following you now.

  13. Thanks for the sweet comments!
