I fully intended to post this on Monday. But somehow it's Wednesday now? Not sure how that happened. The passage of time, I guess?

Anyway, Ashley nominated me for this Stylish Blogger Award. Hooray! Thank you, Ashley!

Here are the rules for the acceptance of the award:

1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you the award.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Award 15 other bloggers.
4. Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award.

I'm not gonna lie to you. I don't know 15 people (personally) who blog. (I'm also one of those people who broke chain letters in elementary school.) But! Here are 7 things you may not know about me...

1. When I was in the 5th grade, I thought it was cool to say "Oh mylanta!" because DJ Tanner used to say that on Full House. I also once tried to answer the phone at my grandmother's house with, "Talk to me" because Uncle Jesse did. The person on the other end of the phone had NO idea what to say and I hung up because I was so embarrassed. So! Lesson learned catch phrases from Full House!

2. I like werewolves better than vampires. You probably didn't know this because I just discovered this myself last night. I'm currently reading the 3rd Sookie Stackhouse novel and it is light on the vampire action and I am enjoying it SO MUCH MORE than the first two novels. I also preferred Jacob to Edward in Twilight, so I suppose I like my sexy beasts warm and hairy and not cold and undead. Come to think of it, I'm also a big Remus Lupin fan as well.

3. I sang Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" to Jack ALL THE TIME when he was a tiny baby. Even though it only occasionally calmed him down, I kept going back to it because it calmed ME down.

4. My first cup of coffee was at Cafe du Monde in the Esplanade Mall in Kenner, LA. I drank it with a straw because that's how my dad has to drink all of his drinks too.

5. I got my first pedicure when I was 29 years old. And it was only because it was my first Mother's Day gift from Reid. Which I waited to use until September of that year because we were going on our delayed Honeymoon cruise. It's because I don't like feet AT ALL. And I really don't like people touching my feet. But man, that pedicure was amazing and I have been hooked ever since.

6. I didn't know the awesomeness of cheese until I moved out on my own. My mom doesn't like cheese so we never had it in the house. It was never on sandwiches or burgers or anything else, for that matter. But now I know. Cheese is gooooood. And I appreciate it more since I didn't discover it until I was an adult.

7. I would really like some muffins right now.

I nominate Mrs. G, Christy, Jenny, Lana, and Mel. We cruised together and now we must blog together.

i didn't realize your first pedicure was at 29! I don't like people touching my feet, but knew about pedicures before 29 - i would have made you get one!
