i am one lucky girl, more awards you say??

1 August 2012

so...there was me saying that i am going through a big old hump because i need a holiday blah blah... and then i wake up and had like 6 million or so emails from blogger saying that people had commented and that put a smile on my face first thing...and then, i remembered that i had been nominated twice for the versatile blogger award by these two lovely ladies;
Amanda at Faith Love Strength and Sarah at From Elizabeth, With Love ...

over exageration and memory loss seem to be a side effect of this 'hump'. when i get back i will be in full fuctioning mode again i promise.

these little awards are so much fun and i really do love this little community of smaller bloggers that we have got going on...

this award works by me sharing 7 interesting facts about myself and then tagging some other bloggers to do the same.

i mean who doesn't love an overshare.
and i am sure you are all dying to know more about me *cough cough*

one // i have a very real fear that one day i will wake up and literally be a malteser. a big round ball of chocolaty goodness, with a face...

two // i love that my sisters face makes me laugh so much. not in a horrible way or anything; just that she has a really small mouth, and a pea head. makes me giggle for hours...

three // last year was a really hard year for us, there was a lot of stress surrounding us and every day i am thankful that we are no longer living in a hell hole and that we made it through everything together.

four // on a particularly rowdy night out, my good friend holly and i were discussing our new buzz word; WWKD = what would kate do?
(incase you are wandering who this 'kate' is.. it is obviously in reference to Kate Middleton... derr...)
since that night i have started to regularly apply this to my every day life. it has become a part of the way i conduct myself. an example??
'what should i wear tonight??'
you find a dress. put said dress on. look in mirror. ask yourself WWKD?
if the answer is yes, she would wear this ensemble, then i go right ahead and wear it.
if the answer is no, that said dress is far too short/revealing, then you would take it off and try again.
note; this method only applies pre-prosecco drinks. it becomes null and void after two glasses of the bubbly goodness. i know it should in theory it should an even more prominant effect after a few drinks but i don't make the rules. holly does.

five // i love prosecco. and wine. and chocolate. and ice cream. actually i pretty much love all sweet things.

six // i am really proud of myself that i have stuck by this little blog for about 8 months now, i know it is still only small and still growing, but i am proud to the hilt anyway.

seven // yoga is the only sport/exercise that i have ever found that i really like doing...i am taking my mat to italy and will be practicising in the mountains, by the pool every day.

so here are the blogs that i am tagging for the versatile blogger award..
oh hello love / eat bake sew love / wish it. dream it. do it. /
not all those who wander are lost / the granberries / read my mind

you know, this post has really cheered me up from my 'hump' today. who knew!

on a little side note i can't believe i have nearly 30 followers, who knew, i thought the only people who would read my blog are my mum and biscuit!!
