The fashionable and fabulous Amber from Amber's Notebook nominated me for a Beautiful Bloggers award. I'm supposed to tell you guys 7 random things about myself, and then nominate 7 more bloggers for the award. So here goes...

1. I've been a nanny for the past 8 1/2 years ( the past 7 1/2 with the same family).

2. I met my husband on a blind date, a little over four years later we were married!

3. Las Vegas is one of my favorite cities to travel to (it's great for a long weekend!). Love the shopping, the shows, and the food (I'm really not much of a gambler though!).

4. My all time favorite movie is The Wizard of Oz. I've loved it since I was a kid, and still watch it every time it comes on TV.

5. I love to read. My favorite author is Jodi Picoult and one of my favorites is My Sister's Keeper.

6. My only claim to fame is that some of our wedding/engagement photos were used in a print and television ad for a local jewelry store. I felt special. Lol.

7. I hate camping, hiking, or anything "outdoorsy" unless it includes sitting on a beach sipping a tropical drink. I'm really more of an indoor girl.

6. Justine at Fetching Fashions

Love the wedding photos! Gorgeous. I don't comment here often, but I read every post.

Love the blog!

Jennifer said...

Thanks J! I need to get working on my post!

I also hate camping and love the Wizard of Oz! Why sleep in a tent when you can stay in a hotel?

Coley said...

Thanks, J! I also LOVED Wizard of Oz as a little one...I had the ruby slippers and all. As I said in my blog post to you...your wedding photo = STUNNING! :)

Amber @ A Little Pink in the Cornfields said...

Amber said...

I love Jodi Picoult, she is one of my all time favorite authors. My Sister's Keepers is one of my top 5 favorite books. Cry everytime I read it.

J @ The Look 4 Less said...

anotherfishinthesea - Thank you!!

Dani - Thanks so much, that's very sweet. You should comment more! I love hearing from my readers.

Jennifer - So true!!

Coley - I remember wanting a pair of ruby slippers desperately when I was a kid (who I am I kidding, I still do!!). Thanks for the sweet compliment on the photos.

Amber @ A Little Pink in the Cornfields - Thank you so much! That is so nice of you to say.

Amber - Thank you for the award!! Oooh, a Vegas meet up would be so fun!

Sabrina - I cry too, the ending is just so sad. I feel like a lot of her books are that way though.

Ha ha ha.... I love Vegas too, it's my fave. Can't spend more than 3 days there at a time.

I met my husband on a blind date too! It was a double date with mutual friends.

Yes, I hate camping. Unfortunately now that I'm married I'm subjected to it once a year.

J @ The Look 4 Less said...

Faith - I agree, 3 days is the perfect amount of time!

That's so cool. I never thought I'd meet my husband that way but I guess life just works in mysterious ways!

Glad I'm not the only one who hates camping. Luckily my husband hasn't subjected me to it yet (or maybe he's just sparing himself from the pain). Haha.
