I'd Like to Thank the Academy

Ok, now first off I have to explain that winning an award on this here blog makes me a lot nervous. You see, you are usually expected to pass these awards on, and that's where I always get nervous. I have just never been sure of who to pass them on to and then I start to sweat. And then I feel like I'm offending the person who gave it to me and then I start to sweat even more.

Um, yeah, I have problems, right?

Ok, so the lovely Megan at Tales of Trees (if you don't read her already, go. Her blog design is gorgeous and so is she) gave me the Honest Scrap award.

Aww, thanks Megan. I'm so honored!

So to recieve this award I need to give you 10 Facts about me. Here we go:

  1. I am a recovering bra and underwear addict. I talk about my bra problems here. I say that I am recovering because a few well-fitting pieces have finally made me change my ways.
  2. I am afraid of birds. Yes, little robins make me duck out of the way and maybe scream a tiny bit when they are flying towards me. I am terrified of them and that's all there is to it.
  3. I love dresses. Formal dresses, casual dresses, or any dresses - I want them. I will be posting about this sometimes...
  4. I have suspended my bag search until next Friday. Next Friday is the kickoff of the Nordstrom Semi-Annual sale and I will be there when the store opens. I say suspended like that really means anything. I'm just really excited to look for a bag next Friday, that's all.
  5. I believe that years of high-heel wearing has finally taken a toll on my feet, and I now feel like the padding on the bottom of my foot is gone. High heels now hurt and this makes me sad.
  6. I have hated my thighs since I was little. For probably the past 4 years, I didn't wear shorts because I hated my legs. Recently, I have begun to accept my legs and for some reason I bought a denim miniskirt at Old Navy. I've got issues, don't ask...
  7. My flat hair is the bane of my existance. I try and try to make it look thick and have volume, but usually it just drives me crazy.
  8. I have a slight addiction to body products. I have at least a laundry basket full of lotions, hairsprays - any product you can think of. You name it, I have it. Seriously, it's a sickness that I'm gradually trying to wean myself of. Part of this problem stems from me working at Bath and Body Works for a few summers. I can't turn down a sale...
  9. I have been feeling the need for an accessory makeover. I am sick of all my old jewelry, plus I've been wearing the jewelry The Boy gave me for a while now. I really need to put that jewelry behind me (but it's Tiffany!) and try something new. Blah.
  10. I love books. Since I accidentally enrolled myself in Amazon Prime for a year, I probably make an order from them every single week. Yesterday I recieved Secrets of a Shoe Addict, The Time Traveler's Wife, and The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society.
Wow, I'm not gonna lie - that was a bit exhausting.

Ok so I was going to accept another award in this post but I'm already exhausted and need to get my morning started... so I will bring you more exciting coverage from the Academy Awards of my life verry soon.

Happy Wednesday!

Thanks Sarah! You are so sweet!! I am the same way about the whole body products thing. A couple of weeks ago I chucked it all in the trash and just left out the things that were necessities/new. It was like a weight lifted off my shoulders! I should have taken pics! And now I get to buy new things... :P

Thank you Sarah! Oh, so Caroline from Pink Champagne (not sure if you read her blog) bought the Bumpit thing for your hair. It looked cute in her pictures, so I got one too. It's actually pretty cute, but the large one is too big.
ten dollars at walgreens.

I hate my thighs too. I think they are nasty and need plastic surgery! Haha

I like it that we have so many things alike, like loving dresses and high high heels :) Sorry if they make you hurt these days, are there anything with comfortable padding maybe?

ps. I hate my thighs too.
