Blog Award!

A couple weeks ago, I was delighted to receive a blog award from Cathy of Fiscally Chic :)  As a recipient of the award, I'm sharing 7 fun facts about myself.  Enjoy!

1) I've learned that layering clothes makes it appear that you put a little thought into your outfit. My go-to piece - a cardigan!  I like them all - every color, length, weight.  It must be genetic because my mom is a big fan too... As a little girl, I didn't understand why all of her clothes were solid colors.  Now I see that mix-and-match items make it easy to expand your wardrobe.

JCrew cardigans in every color - LOVE!
The newest addition to my growing collection -
thanks to my sister-in-law J :)
2) I need at least 8 hours of sleep a night.  The ideal would probably be closer to 9 hours... which is next to impossible with everything going on in life.  But boy, do I love feeling completely rested when it happens!

3) Updated with a related but slightly more interesting fact: I am terrified of needles.  Despite this, I decided to get my bellybutton pierced when I was younger... (ouch).

4) I have four younger sisters and I am super girlie. My friends swear I am going to end up having all sons.

5) Not many people know that I skipped first grade.  It was most apparent that I was young for my year in school when I didn't turn 21 until November of senior year in college... a little brutal.  Yes, we celebrated with a luau-themed party in November.  (I love the beach, though I don't get there often!)

6) I have only been out of the country one time - to Ireland with a couple high school girlfriends - and only been west of Kansas three times - to go to the Fiesta Bowl in Tempe, AZ during senior year of college and to Vegas with work friends last fall, plus Hawaii for our honeymoon.

7) A few of my favorite things... I have a weakness for shoes and could get lost in a book for hours at a time.  I love all kinds of sweets, champagne, coffee, and cheese.  Purple is my favorite color.  Yoga, dancing and walking are my favorite forms of exercise - and great ways to relax.  I adore my husband and our home, my family and friends.
Most of my books...
A fraction of my shoes... eek
And now to pass along the award to some of the fabulous blogs I read regularly - besides Fiscally Chic of course.  They are all sources of inspiration... their content runs the gamut from fashion, new products, and jewelry, to design, home decor, and starting/owning a business.  I am amazed by what these talented bloggers serve up!
