Stylish Blogger Award

Photobucket

I'm so excited to be bestowed this honor by Molly of Molly's Sewing and Garage Sale Adventures.  The only thing I had been previously nominated for is "Most Likely To Forget Which Class I'm In" in middle school.  So, thanks!

The deal is, you post 7 things about yourself and then list 7 blogs you are reading.  Here goes.

1.  I used to be the pickiest eater in the world.  Up until a couple years ago, I hated strawberries, cream cheese, sushi, most cooked vegetables, hummus, tea, tomato products (I would scrape the sauce off pizza, seriously), mushrooms, etc.  I've gotten much better and I now love all those things on my former hate list.  My only holdouts are organ meats, ketchup, and onions.  No thanks.

2.  I have freakishly large hands, with really skinny fingers.  They're as big as my husband's but I wear a size 4.5 ring.  I should have become a piano player. 

3.  I was not allowed to have pets growing up, except for a bird, so the first thing I did when I moved out was procured two cats.  Their names are Bone and Lamb and they are 9 this year!

4.  My New Year's Resolution in 2009 was to not eat fast food and I haven't broken it yet.  I count "fast food" as anything with a drive-through, so like McDonalds, Taco Bell, KFC, Wendy's, and so on.  The only time I sort of cheated was about a year ago and I was in the middle of nowhere, and it was either Dairy Queen or starvation.

5.  I haven't bought clothes at the mall since I started sewing.  New clothes don't excite me at all.  I prefer sewing my own lately and I also like thrifting and vintage stores for the thrill of the hunt.

6.  I have the cutest husband in the world.  Fact.

7.  I live for warm weather.  In the summer, I am outside as much as I possibly can.  Nothing makes me happier than sunshine on my face and a pretty sundress, and having beers on a patio.

Blogs I am currently loving:

Ellie from Good Morning Idea
Sara from Ohhh Lulu
Kate from Orange K8
Astrid from Sew Sixties
Vintage Girl
Camelias and Crinolines
Sam from All things quilty....and sewy
