Stylish Blogger Award :)

I've been tagged!!! (this not-so-secretly makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside!)
Thanks Ashelle, you made my week :)
So here's the scoop:
  • Thank and link back to the person who originally gave you this award.
  • Share 7 things about yourself.
  • Pay the award forward to 10 great bloggers.
  • Contact those bloggers and let them know they have received the award.
  1. I'm currently working on my CMA (Certified Managerial Accountant designation). How did I decide what I wanted to study when I "grew up"? Simple. I chose the class I took in High School & University that I put the least effort into and got the best grades. And you know... I like money.
  2. My dream job is to be an event planner. I'm OCD when it comes to little details and making lists and I LOVE things like stationary, decorating, budgets, being creative, and of course, telling others what to do :)
  3. I come from a HUGE italian family, and while I hate to cook, I'm damn good at it. Thank you nonna!
  4. I am athletically challenged. Anything that involves too much coordination is a complete mystery to me. I've tried soccer, karate, dance, skating (ice & inline), snowboarding, rugby, and tennis... just to name a few, and have failed miserably at them all!
  5. I'm a nail biter. I quit doing it for a few years, but recently started again. My nails looked much prettier before :(
  6. I'm a notorious over packer. I will bring enough clothes for an entire month on a week-long vacation... and 10 pairs of shoes, and make up, and hair maintenance items, and skin care items... (I bring this up because I am being lectured by my mother as I type this about only bringing ONE suitcase. Is she nuts?!)
  7. I make lists for EVERYTHING! I even make lists about lists I need to make. No, that's not a bad joke.
And now to pass this on! If you've received it already, or simply don't like this kind of thing, I won't be offended, but here are a few bloggers that I've been drawn to recently and totally deserve it!

Red Lips & Bardot Hair
Peachy Keen
Sew I Thought...
Money Smart Fashion
Domestic Sophisticate
A Fashion Fixation
Stilettos & Diaper Bags
Clearly Classic
Tinfoils Tiaras


  1. Aw, thank you so much! You're so sweet!I will re-post this with my 7 things tomorrow after class.

    I really enjoyed reading yours, mostly because I can relate to 4-7. (I'm trying to quit biting my nails as well. I stopped before the wedding, but then started again afterward.)

    Oh and I sent you an e-mail and one of your Swap and Shop items! ;)

  2. Thanks for the award, Melrose! I always appreciate your feedback on my posts. I'm with you on being bad at sports...I'm useless at everything except skiing. I learned fast because I'm short. Low center of gravity helps when a sport is about balance! Also, it's not a team sport, so I can take off and enjoy it alone as well as with friends.


  3. Aww thanks! You totally made my day!

  4. Yay, thank you soooooo much Melrose!!!!

  5. Awe :) You're welcome! I enjoyed reading all these wonderful tidbits about you. You would make a wonderful event planner. I think that over packing is never a bad thing. What's horrible is forgetting to pack things you need and having to buy them while away.

  6. thanks so much! I've never gotten anything like this before. makes me feel important. :))
    And I also love lists.

  7. Thanks for tagging me Mel :) I just posted my seven things! That's great that you're working on your CMA (I'm wishing I'd done accounting, I loved math!)Event planning is fun for the most part but I don't enjoy doing corporate events! Great post! xo Em

  8. We are so much alike....
    I would also love to be an events planner and sometimes I am in my job! Although I think if I were I would have buried a few brides.
    I make lists a lot, too many. However they keep me focused. I also use to bite my nails and I have ZERO coordination let me add to that I cannot sing either. Quite the package don't you think ?


I'd love to hear from you!
