Shine On Award

Shine On Awards

I know a lot of blogs are awards-free but hey, I like recognition and cute little buttons to put on my site. Kimberly (or maybe you know her as Berls) from Fantasy is More Fun has nominated me for the Shine On Award.

Rules of the Award

1. Visit and thank the blogger who nominated you.
2. Acknowledge that blogger on your blog, and link back.
3. Share seven random, interesting things about yourself.
4. Nominate up to 15 bloggers for the Shine On Award, provide a link to their blogs in your post, and notify them on their blogs.

Seven Random Interesting Things About Me

1. I don’t own a cell phone. They’re handy in an emergency but I don’t need to be in constant contact with people.

2. October 27, 2011, ranks as one of the top 10 nights of my life. I will never forget game 6 of the 2011 World Series and videos like this still make me cry.

3. I have two cats: Liesl and Brigitta. They’re sisters from the same litter, born in 2000. Yes, they’re named after characters in The Sound of Music, my favorite movie. Liesl has allergies and is constantly sneezing, sometimes 20 or more times in rapid succession. In winter, Brigitta likes to sleep on my lap completely under a blanket.

4. I manage a restaurant. I majored in finance in college and I worked for a bank when I first graduated, but my dream is to own my own restaurant. I worked two jobs for awhile but eventually left the bank and went full-time at the restaurant. Although I like to cook at home, that’s not my main interest at work. I’m more interested in the business and managerial side of things.

5. I sleep with my head at the foot of the bed (in the middle of the room) and I hate sheets. I don’t like my feet being confined. I like to sleep under a loose blanket.

6. Love: theme socks, Tex-Mex, blue nail polish, homemade cornbread, goats

7. Hate: Dr. Seuss, Jess from Gilmore Girls, chocolate ice cream and pudding (but I like chocolate)

My Nominations

2. Jasmine at Flip That Page
3. Jennifer at Live to Read, Love to Read

  1. Thank you so much for the nomination! However I don’t think I can accept from someone who doesn’t like Jess. Kidding of course! But seriously how can you not be in love with Jess?
    Thanks again this really means a lot!

  2. While I love sheets, I have to keep my foot uncovered or I cannot breath. I do not own a house phone, but always have my cell phone with me. I love Gilmore Girls and never missed an episode. I prefer vanilla ice cream but it has to have real vanilla beans in it. I am a Phillies fan! Loved reading about you and Kim @ Fantasy is More Fun is a sweetheart. Followed you on bloglovin’

    • I think my favorite ice cream is mint chocolate chip. I have an ice cream maker than I don’t always remember to use but I made a really good blackberry frozen yogurt this summer. I wish I had some right now.

      Thanks, I followed you back. I thought I already was following you!
