Blogger Award.

Ashley at My Carnival Ride gave me this lovely award a while ago recently.  As a newbie blogger, it's nice to know that people are reading the stuff I write!  Thanks Ashley!!  You guys should definitely check out her blog.

So, the requirements are to list seven random facts about me then pass the award on to five other blogs.

1.  I'm pretty particular about my food-- cheese should not be in dessert, and fruit should not be in/on an entrée. 

2.  And yet, I'm an adventurous eater.  I love trying new cuisines and foods from far away places.

3.  I REALLY want a dog.  I always had a dog (at least one) growing up, and now I feel like my house is empty without one.  I think I'd get a puggle-- a pug and beagle mix.  Isn't she the cutest thing??    Sadly, I'm just not home enough to take good care of a dog.

4.  Paul Blart: Mall Cop is one of my favorite movies.  It makes me laugh so hard no matter how many times I've seen it.  There's even a show (on TLC, I think) called "Mall Cops" about mall security at the Mall of America.  It's a funny show too, although I don't think it was designed that way...

5.  I read books constantly, but just recently discovered the wonderfulness of the library.  How have I not been using the library all these years?  It's a warehouse of free books!  What could be better?

6.  I get bored really easily with my hair color or style.  My natural color is a medium brown, but over the last six months, I've been a dark red and now it's a dark chocolate brown (which I love).  It's also just about the longest it's ever been (about 5" below my shoulders).  And, while I really want to grow it out super-long, I also really want to cut it again.  Decisions, decisions.

7.  I own a ridiculous amount of pens that I never use.  I love pens, but go through phases with each one.  My current favorite pens are the Sharpie pens.  NOT the retractable ones-- for some reason they don't write the same.  Stick with the original.

I hereby pass this lovely award on to the following blogs I read all the time and love:

1. Sarah @ The 62 Days of Sarah
2. Jenna @ The Indecisive Organizer
3. Amy @ Ha ha. Wait. What? (ps-- that is the best name for a blog.  ever.)
4. Rachel @ Randomness with Rachel
5. Katie @ Katie's Journey
