A Beautiful Award

Happy Friday Everyone! I hope you have had a fabulous week and are looking forward to a wonderful weekend! I am starting my blogging today with an award, and have several posts to follow throughout the day, so be sure to stop back by.





I have been given the Beautiful Blogger award by 3 of my favorite *Daily Distractions*: Coley of Coley's Closet Cravings, Kathy and Seashell at Two Hands Full of Daisies, and GingerSnap of GingerSnap's Daily Fashion Post. With accepting the award I am to post 7 Random Things about myself and then nominate 7 other bloggers to receive it. Thank you for the award ladies and here it goes! :)


  •  One of my all time favorite television series is Doctor Who.
  •  I rowed on the girls' Crew Team in High School. It was also the first year our school even had a Crew team. Since there weren't many other high schools to compete against at that time, we rowed in Regattas against Yale, Harvard, Tulane, and Boston University, among many others. We also traveled to Miami, Tampa, and Georgia to compete.
  •  I traveled throughout Great Britain and Europe with one of my best friends when I was 18.
  •  I worked on a 4700 acre ranch in Montana when I was in my early 20's.
  •  I absolutely love glamour and wish that the *dress code* of today could be like it was in the days of *Old Hollywood*.
  • My favorite ice cream is Blue Bell Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.
  • I enjoy listening to 80's music. :)
My 7 nominees are:


These ladies are fabulous and so are their blogs. :)

  11. Thanks FFM! You made my day :) Interesting random facts...I wouldn't have pegged you for a Dr. Who fan. And I love Old Hollywood glamour, but that is not to say that I don't love yoga pants just as much ;)

  12. You definitely deserve an award for all your time and dedication, and for sharing your talent. I am addicted to your daily posts! So from your list, I see that you are cultured & aware (from all your European travels), fit and not afraid of hard physical work (rowing and work on the farm), fashion conscious (you probably even looked cute and coordinated on the tractor!), and enjoy good music and a few indulgences (ice cream.....probably not too much too often since you stay so tiny and fit!) Congratulations on a well deserved award FFM !!
