Blog Award!

The lovely Jamie over at Everyday J has given me a blog award!   When she emailed me to tell me, she was so sweet and it made my day!  Sometimes when I blog, I wonder if anyone actually enjoys reading my nonsense posts!  Emails (and comments) like Jamie's make my day every time!  If you haven't checked out Jamie's blog, make sure to do so!  She always has fun posts and I especially love her outfit posts....her style is very similar to mine!

The OFFICIAL rules of the award are:
-Thank the award-giver and link back to them in your post.
-Tell your readers 7 things about yourself.
-Give this award to up to 15 recently discovered bloggers.
-Contact those bloggers and tell them the exciting news!
{one}: I need at least one caffeinated beverage every day.  I usually have coffee in the morning and (sometimes) a soda at lunch.  I seriously can't function without some caffeine.  If I don't have it, I yawn all day long.  It's possible I need more sleep but I can't shut my brain down at night so I always end up falling asleep super late! 

This is what I use at home...LOVE it!
{two}: I love, love, love reality TV.  It's sad.  My DVR is always filled with trashy TV (Jerseylicious, Real World, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, etc.)  It's a guilty pleasure and I can't get enough!  I love watching drama and not being involved!  haha :)  I also love competition shows like Project Runway, Top Chef, Design Star, etc.  

{three}: I love warm weather and DESPISE cold weather.  I would love to move south but don't see it happening until I retire...or win the lottery.  As soon as it starts to get a little chilly (read: below 65 degrees), I start craving spring and summer.  Here in Ohio we have cold, gray winters and it is SO gloomy.  Not to mention everyone forgets how to drive.  I need to move somewhere where I can visit the pool and be tan year round!
Yes, please!!
{four}: I am a suburbanite and I wouldn't have it any other way!  I don't think I would be able to survive "out in the country" with less amenities.  I know it's nice to have land, but I need a Target within 5 minutes, please!  I think the city could be cool, but it isn't for me since I want to raise a family!  Plus I'm way too impatient for all that traffic and let's face it, public transportation is NOT my cup of tea!

{five}: My two Yorkies ARE my children.  We don't have any kids of our own [yet] and I love spoiling my puppers!  I know they have way too many toys, treats, beds, etc. but they deserve it!  There is no way to resist the little stinkers.  They are so loving and always make me happy!
Proof of cuteness!
{six}: I met the man of my dreams (too cheesy?) when I was only 17 years young!  My hubby and I met through friends back when I was a senior in HS (he is 4 years older).  We started dating when I was 17, we bought a house when I was 19, got married when I was 22 and now here I am at 26 happier than ever!  I love him so much and feel so blessed that I found my soulmate so early in life.  He is my best friend!  Sick of hearing about us yet?  Here is a pic so you can throw up in your mouth a bit........mushy gushy love!
{seven}: I'm a shopaholic.  [I can't believe I actually came out and said it, that's step one, right?!]  I'm not the type to go out and spend hundreds and thousands of dollars on fancy, designer things, though.  I guess my shopping philosophy is quantity over quality.  I don't love wearing the same outfit all the time so I'd rather have 4 cheap Forever21 shirts rather than 1 shirt from Banana.  You can judge me if you want, I don't care.  I get sick of things very quickly so I'd rather spend less!  I love am obsessed with Target!  I'd say I go there approximately 4 times a week (on average) probably?  There is one Target within 3 minutes of my house (LOVE) and another within about 8 minutes.  Seriously, how can I resist?!  Sometimes I go just because I'm bored.  It's sick.  A while ago I started putting my empty shopping bags in the corner of my room near my trashcan.  I was a little scared at how quickly they piled up.  Eek, time for an intervention!  I'm really excited to get back to work after having the summer off b/c I will be too busy to shop as often!
Might as well be me!
I'm passing on this award to these wonderful bloggers.  Head on over and check them out.  Hopefully you love reading their posts as much as I do!

I MUST have coffee in the am...sometimes twice. Oops! Additionally, I have a Target addiction! Living in Michigan, I totally understand how you feel about the weather. I don't mind fall, but once it starts snowing, get me out of here!

Aww thanks so much girl! Funny story for you on target... we (Jared and I) got a giftcard to Target for Christmas last year from his sister. She said "I don't know if you guys know this, but you talk about Target... A LOT" Without realizing it's my favorite store too. And bless H-town for having 2 :)

Ike is pretty pumped that he was included in this award. He feels that I steal his thunder a lot.

We have a ton in common. Diet Dew is the only thing that keeps me from being a horrible boss. And I am honestly not allowed to go into Target alone. The husband will actually run errands for me because he knows it will be cheaper if he goes himself. :P

Thanks again!

I'm with you on most everything here--I love my coffee, I'm a shopaholic, and Target might be the best place ever! However, I love cold weather! It probably has to do with growing up in Florida and getting it so rarely, but I love wearing fall clothes and snuggling up in a warm sweatshirt with a nice hot chocolate!
