Stylish Blogger Award!

YAY! I received my first Stylish Blogger Award from one of my favorite blogs, Soulshine! I love keeping up with Ashton's journey through law school and hope to meet up with her when I'm in Charleston in a few months! 
Rules of the Stylish Blogger Award
Share seven fun facts about yourself and then pass the award on. 

I am scared of the dark. I would even say that it might be Nyctophobia (phobia of the dark). Most people grow out of this fear, but I think I grew into it. I wasn't horrified of he dark as a child, but mostly as a teenager and into my adult life. My only guess is when I was a child I had night terrors-perhaps that had an affect on me. Please, never turn the lights out on me. I will go NUTS!

I could not live without shrimp....or ice cream....but not together. I once told my Mom that I would not have children if I had to reduce my intake of creatures of the sea. She found it comical-I don't think she realized I was serious. 
I could eat ice cream everyday! I enjoy almost any flavor, but good, ole' fashioned vanilla and cake batter are my faves!

I've lived all over the world. I'm a Navy brat. From the time I was born (in Japan) until the age of ten, I moved every two or three years. My family has lived in Italy, Portugal, Mississippi, California and Kentucky. I've even had the chance to visit Spain! I contribute my travel but to this and loved every minute of experiencing different cultures. It's amazing how much I remember from each place, but I would have to say Italy was my favorite. I would LOVE to go back and explore the places I lived, and revisit some of the places I had the chance to see when I was a child.

This might be the craziest thing ever, but I have a theory on the word, "so."
I don't understand why the word to has another spelling and meaning, "too," but "so," does not. The word "too" can man also or to a greater extent. Because of that, I think the word "so" should have another meaning/spelling, "soo" which would mean to a greater extent. It makes sense. (i.e.) I miss you "soo" much, Mom!
What do you think?

I have a VERY low heart rate. I have to take medicine so that my body recognizes it as normal. If I don't, I will pass out and my heart will stop and re-boot....kind of like a computer. The average heart rate is between 60 and 100 beats a minute. My heart rate rivals that of a professional athlete, 45-50 beats a minute. Please know that I am ANYTHING BUT an accomplished athlete. 

I could watch HGTV's House Hunters all day long! I don't like International House Hunters as much, but will watch it too. I love going home to visit my parents, because my Mother and I will be lazy in the mornings and watch as many episodes as we can until we absolutely HAVE to get up. Love it!

When I was a freshman in high school, I was a cheerleader. During a pep-rally (in which the ENTIRE school was in attendance), I passed out. I don't mean I was sitting in my seat and passed out, I was leading the school, in cheers, ON THE MAIN FLOOR, and passed out after I tumbled and broke my ankle. Needless to say, they stopped the rally because of me. TOTALLY EMBARRASSING!

Thanks again to Soulshine, for giving me this award!
I'm passing this on to:

{av} will be guest blogging tomorrow!

Make sure to check out all of the blogs above! Each of these gals are great writers and share fun things on a daily basis!



  1. So sweet of you! I can't wait to meet Ashton sometime in he future as well!

  2. I love house hunters as well!! and italy is one of my favorite places in the world

  3. Just a few things! I dread the day my doc tells me I can no longer eat seafood/sushi. Half of my daily diet will be eliminated. For real! I completely agree on the "so" theory. It is probably the most over used word in my vocabulary. Lastly, please go back and check out my first SB award and read about my cheerleading fub. Guaranteed to give you a laugh. That is awful about your ankle! Painful...ouch!

  4. I lived in Japan also! Yay military kids ;)

  5. Good Day,

    Thank your family for me for serving in the military. There is no greater advocate for the betterment of this country then that of a soldier.

    As far a the low heart rate is concerned "do not fret" my resting bpm is 34. Consider it bragging rights. Congratulations on the award.
