My first blog award

I received my first blog award last week! Thank you so much to Jami at Bowling Adventures!

Here are the rules:
1. Link back and thank the person that gave you the award.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Award 5 recently discovered blogs.
4. Contact them and tell them about their award.

1. I can't do a cartwheel. Never could, actually. I'm 5'9" (arguably) and 90% legs. Just ain't gonna happen.

2. I was already 5'8" in the 6th grade. I have always thought I was 5'9" since then. But last summer I made a trip to the doctor and was informed I'm 5'10". I actually made her measure three times, because I didn't believe her. I still don't.

3. I am horribly allergic to poison ivy. I don't actually have to touch it to break out. Last summer, my dogs were in my parents' back yard. The neighbors had poison ivy in their yard. I broke out 2 days later. Hives and all. Never even went outside. Gross.

4. I'm super weird about textures. I won't even touch velvet or suede. Gross. There was a gorgeous couch that the hubby loved when we were furniture shopping. We couldn't get it because I would've never sat on it.

I love Winter Candy Apple from Bath & Body Works. Since it's seasonal, I try to stock up every winter. I bought so much one year that I didn't need to buy again for 2 more years.

6. I'm an impulse buyer. I have a marketing degree. I took the classes. I know that retailers purposely arrange merchandise so I'll be tempted. I still go for it every time.

7. I'm a country girl. I grew up in a very small town. We had a pasture behind our house. My mom used to send us out there with a wheel barrel and a shovel, to collect manure for her garden. One time, my friend told me that brown cows make chocolate milk. I didn't believe her, so I sent her into the pasture with an empty cup, to prove it.

Now, to tag 5 people...

Jessica at An Inner Voice
Lindsey at Vineyard Loveknots
Amber at Brunch with Amber
Rebekah at Life With the Edwards
Katie at Spirals and Spatulas

I'm a huge impulse shopper. Thankfully our budget is keeping me in check. Thanks for the award!

Amber said...

Ahh, you're SUCH a doll. Thanks for the award! :) I'll post about it when I get off work this afternoon. I can't imagine not being able to do a cartwheel, I've been cheering/dancing my whole life! But I'm super short and have little stumpy legs ;)

Love your new button, by the way. Saw on twitter you were having technical difficulties. Let me know when you get the kinks worked out. I wanna add it to my "blogs I adore" page on my blog! :)
