And The Award Goes To...

...me, among so many other fabulous ones. Oh wait, I already said this once before. But this time I have to add - I got it twice!!!!
Yay! I'm flattered I got this cute and may I say sweet and fabulous Sugar Doll Award from Katie over at The Adventures of Katie and Josh and from Kelly over at Keeping up with Kelly & co. . I'm stoked.. Thanks a million to the both of you. Thank you Katie and thank you Kelly!!!!


The directions are to post the award on my site, write 10 interesting things about myself and then pass it on to 10 other bloggers. Easier said than done!

Here it goes:

  • I'm constantly told my hands and fingers are the exact resemblance to my great-grand mother's. I saw pictures and I saw similarities...Unfortunately, I never met her so I can't say for sure but my family keeps telling me this and it's quite interesting to "see" some gene proof of some sort. 
  • History was and still is my favorite subject. I aced that one every single time. And even today, I can tell you certain details about certain historical events (i.e. WWII, or the Civil War) you probably know but forgot or never heard of or just never knew. Some dates and details just stuck, some so didn't. 
  • Even though I may be good at keeping dates in mind (not just birthdays, but also events, past fun dates, or weird facts like what time my mom was born or when my friend told me she was pregnant the first time, May 20, 2003 due in three weeks) I suck at remembering names!!!!! Even today I mix my friends' names sometimes...funny but also embarrassing.
  • My dreams are always in English. Never in my first language. Weird?! I think it's good though!
  • I cannot stand/deal with/look at animals (to me gross creatures) that fly, jump, crawl, or just freak me out. Haha! Spiders of any kind, bugs (ugly ones seen in Louisianna once and then I knew I so didn't like them), worms, ants, snakes, bees, flies, mosquitos etc etc.
    I'm doing ok with birds, but hate it when I can't see where they may land. Hopefully never on me. Don't like it when they fly over and around me either... for unknown reasons then The Birds comes automatically to my mind.
  • Halloween and Christmas are my favorite holidays. My Christmas ornaments, and decoration craziness is huge (not to mention the Christmas songs), and I love it when it's all colorful and bright and just way too much. I wish I had my own very humongous house so I could go crazy. One day I'm sure.
    Though if I don't decorate on any of these two holidays something is wrong. I did not have a tree up last Christmas and it shocked quite some people. And even though I was looking forward to Halloween this year I got to put out all my stuff on the actual day...I just didn't feel like doing much before. A definite sign something's wrong here. :(
  • I'm obsessed with mascara.Regular ones though. Makes my long lashes look fabulous! ;)
    Once I totally forgot to put some on and I went shopping. I passed by (note, I passed by not walked in!) Louis Vuitton and the doorman who was waiting for customers to come to or leave that expensively yummy looking store had mascara and eye liner on. That made me realize I had forgotten to put some on earlier. So, whenever I pass that store I have to look at the guy at the door and see if he's wearing some hot eye lash stuff. haha
  • Shopaholic could be my nickname. Although, I'm the Shopaholic only back in CA, newly discovered Philly, too, and not so much here in Europe. Way too expensive, way too different, just not me. Plus, I love hunting down cheap clothes and find the best deals...I can be the happiest girl ever if I find a shirt at $5 whereas I know I would be paying $30 ir not $50 for the same exact one in another store or in Europe. No fancy stores for me though. Plus, I do have a budget I work with and I never go over that one!
  • I was teased a lot in junior high. Too much at times. This happens to a lot of people and I know I'm not the only one having gone through this, but it made me who I am today. Thick skinned and very very difficult to understand at times. I've been wearing a very thick shell ever since, and I do believe it's also part of why I hold this grudge against this place. This feeling will never leave me. However, I've been dealing with this and a so-called "cure" is hopefully going to crack some of that shell soon. ;)
  • My favorite colors are purple, blue, pink...besides the obvious black, gray and white (I call them the basics! They go with everything and you simply can't do anything wrong there). But if you saw me you'd instantly know what my favorite colors are...even my cell phone's purple, not to mention the color of my camera...pink! :)
Hoe you had fun reading through my silly stuff...very random I guess.

And now I'm passing this cute award on to:

My husband would die without a tree up. It isn't anything fancy, but it is so funny how much joy he gets out of turning the lights on the second we get home from work. AND two years ago, we left it up until Feb 5th - ooops!

Loved learning more about you ... I am a total basics girl too with my black and gray!!

Thanks for sharing the love!!
