The Versatile Blogger Award

I cannot believe this! I've always read posts about girls being nominated for being a FABULOUS blogger.. and i have always admired those girls and tried my darnedest to be as cute, and as clever and as intriguing as they are. And you should have seen my surprise when i was nominated by the fabulous Elizabeth from Love is the Adventure :)

I was so so so pleasantly surprised and honored to receive this amazing award!! :)
and so, without further ado "The Versatile Blogger Award" rules:

1. Thank the person who nominated you: THANK YOU ELIZABETH!! YOU MADE MY BLOGGIN DREAMS COME TRUE!!! :D

2. Share 7 facts about yourself

{one} When I was 9 years old my family moved to Madrid, Spain. We lived there for 3 years. I went to a Spanish public school, lived in a 20 story apartment, rode the metro and 2 buses to get to school, and traveled to Paris and London on 3 day weekends. I vacationed all around Europe every summer and experienced culture like never before. I speak Spanish {almost} fluently. And i have a ridiculous love for Flamenco dancing :)   


{two} I work at a Tactical Law Enforcement & Military store. It's very manly and tough. I sell knives and gun accessories and batons and uniforms. I see guns everyday. I frequently play with tasers and gas masks. I talk to snipers, SWAT, DPS, Patrol, Marines, firemen, and state Gang Force everyday. I love my job.

{three}My favorite food is Thai. I love Pad Thai,  Tom Ka Ga, Panang Curry, Lard Na, Satay Chicken, Mango Curry and Green curry!! All over sticky rice, with a HUGE glass of water and my loved ones all around me. seriously, there is nothing better in the world.

{four} I am an aspiring photographer. My sweet dad bought be the most fabulous SLR camera for my 18th birthday, and i have been in heaven ever since. I love to take pictures of babies, nature, and couples in love. My sister has always been my model, and has done a superb job, if i do say so myself... hmmm maybe i'll post some of my favorite pictures in another post... yes?

{five} I'm a good cook. I never cooked anything before I was married, and i'm pretty sure Alex was scared for his life... He was expecting a couple of years of Ramen, Mac-n-cheese and a lot of burnt stuff. But i think he was pleasantly surprised and all the delicious things i come up with (I'm not trying to brag, i promise, this is just one thing that i do well that i am sorta proud of...) Alex loves coming home and trying my latest invention that suddenly becomes his new favorite over last nights meal. It's a fun game to create something to tasty out of a few random ingredients.

{six} i love to sing. I have been in choir since Elementary school. I sing in church choir. I went to school to be a music major. I took voice lessons for 6 years. I was in Jazz choir in High School & College. I am now in a fabulous choir run by my In-Laws called Resonance. I sing in the shower. I sing in the car. I sing while i make dinner. I make up my own songs.

{seven} i have a fantabulous husband. (side note: i really should do a whole post about our dating/ engagement phase of life) But anyway, Alex is kinda the best thing that ever happened to me. He just showed up in my life when i had no faith in the male species, he surprised me with his wit and charm and spontaneity and slowly helped me believe that not all men are scum bags. He is kind and patient and silly and fun and adventurous and brave and in-tune with the spirit and makes me feel like the most perfect most beautiful most amazing girl in the whole world... and that's a really good feeling. I love him. <3 it's a fact.

Now, after the 7 facts, you must pass this fabulous award on to 5 new bloggers!!!

A Little Bit of Hope
Peace Love and Cupcakes
Causality of Purpose
The World As I See It
Alexis Laughs

Honestly these are some of the best blogs that I read!! Go read 'em!!!

That's all. <3
