Yay for Awards!!!

Whooooo!!! Thanks to the lovely Kaitlynn of Most Serene Rabbit, I have been awarded the Stylish Blogger Award!

Huzzah! Kaitlynn is so cute, she and I are a lot alike! You should definitely check out her blog!

All righty, on to the required stuff that comes with the award!   :0 )

  • Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them in your post
  • Tell us seven things about you
  • Award seven recently discovered new bloggers
  • Contact these bloggers and let them know they've received the award

Seven things about me:
  1. I received a Fulbright grant for journalism and thus spent a year in Munich working on my journalism skills. And... got to interview Lady Gaga during this excursion. I kid you not. It was awesome. 
  2. I plan things to a tee. I love love love making to-do lists and I am not a very spontaneous person, which sometimes bugs me. But it bugs me more not to have a plan. 
  3. I love the bagpipes. I even set out to learn how to play them in college... that didn't really work out. 
  4. Anytime I want to know something, no matter how random or obscure, I always Google it. This can be anything from "what happens when you die" to "how to use a french press."
  5. Elephants are the coolest and most beautiful things on the earth.
  6. I was born on Christmas, and thus have two middle names. Christine Noel.
  7. I can't concentrate on just one thing. Ever. Also, I like telling people about me. Which makes it hard to stop at 7... but I will spare you.

Seven fabulous blogs:

Just a note--choosing these blogs took a LOT of time as I thoroughly thought my decision through. (Wow that sentence is full of the "tho-" words...) Anyway, I apologize to any of the blogs I list if they have already received this award, but then again, what's bad about getting an award twice!?!?

    1. Awe, you're so sweet :) And yes, we are so alike! I looove bagpipes, I've been looking for some Uillean pipes to learn. Also, I am definately jealous of your year in Munich! I ended up staying mostly in one town when I was there, so I didn't get to see Munich, I bet it was amazing!

    2. Awh thanks so much Brenna!! This is so sweet. I can't believe you got to interview Lady Gaga. That is insane. I would never know what to ask. And google is my best friend. I feel like I can conquer the world as long as I have google on my side ha! x

    3. Aww, thank you Brenna! That is amazing about your grant and going to Munich! What a fantastic experience. Also, trust me, being a planner is a good thing... I can only wish it came naturally for me. =]

      xx Melina
