Stylish Blogger Award for me?!

Well color me happy, there's a sofa in here for two!  Miss Michelle at a little bit of this & that made my night yesterday by awarding me with the Stylish Blogger Award.  Thank you so much girl!  This is the second time I've received this award so you know that means I'm super stylish. 

Here are the rules:

1. Link back and thank the person who gave you the award.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Award 5 recently discovered blogs.
4. Contact them and tell them about their award.

Here are some what I'm sure you'll find riveting facts about moi: 

1.  I can´t eat sushi.  I´ve forced myself to try it twice, I gagged both times and had tears in my eyes.  It was awful.  I just got shivers thinking about it.  In fact, I can´t eat anything that is even slightly fishy smelling or tasting.  I will get angry if someone opens a can of tuna around me.

2. I "strongly dislike" Jennifer Hudson.  I think her personality in interviews (or lack thereof) is awful and she brings nothing to the table (minus her voice).  I can't really put my finger on it, but she makes my skin crawl for some reason.   
Oh honey, who lied to you??
3. Ridiculous things happen to me.  I constantly hear, "these things only happen to you."  Let me give you an example.  A few weeks ago I was at Wal-Mart picking up some things when a 70+ year old man stops me to tell me how beautiful I am and is looking me up and down making me super uncomfortable.  At first I laughed awkwardly, said "thank you" and tried to walk away. Oh, how wrong I was thinking that I could get away that easily.  This Hugh Hefner wannabe would NOT leave me alone.  I literally stood there for 15 minutes (WHY????) as he begged me for my phone number so we could "be companions, you know ... something like pen pals".   Sick and ew times a million.  I can't even describe how creepy and gross it was.  Sir, you could literally be my grandfather.  I finally wrote down a fake number and name so I could get out of there.  I ran directly to my car and have yet to go back for fear of running into this character again. 

4. I'm not sure when it started, but as I've gotten older, I've grown an affinity for putting pepper on almost everything I eat.  The best is on potato chips and french fries.  Yumm-o.  Pepper just makes everything so much better. 

5. Much like Snooki, I love pickles.  I have a gallon sized jar of them in my fridge exactly like the picture below and I bring one in a Ziploc bag with me to the movies.  Don't judge!  They are 0 cals and 0 WW points, so they are a good low cal snack.  I know, I know ... I'm aware they have a lot of sodium, but we can't all be perfect now can we?

6. I sleep with the covers over my head and it freaks people out.  For some reason they think I'm going to suffocate, but I make sure I have a nice little air pocket to breathe out of.  I just feel so exposed with my head showing, I don't know ... I'm weird.

7. Las Vegas is my most favorite place eva!  I am pretty sure I want to get married in the Bellagio, my favorite hotel.  I love the electric energy I feel the second I get off the plane and walk through that airport.  Aghh, I'm getting worked up just thinking about it.  And, who else is excited that this season's Real World is going to be in Vegas??? Every time I see previews I want to be in Vegas immediately.
The Bellagio is soooo beautiful!
Thanks again, Michelle!  You are the best. =)

Now I must award 5 of my favorite bloggers ...

1. Claire @ Bicoastally
2. Beth aka "are we the same person?"  @ Sweet Bef's Blog

  1. Well color me happy, there's a sofa in here for two! Love it, Love Pretty Woman. I also loved the Spanish in your title! I LOVE LOVE LOVE Las Vegas, I think you know that already too :) If you get married there, I think I should be invited ;) I love pickles too!

  2. awwww you are too too sweet!! Thanks so much for the award! However my blog isnt too "stylish" yet but it is getting a big makeover really really soon! And you girl are for sure one of my fave bloggers! You need a cute blog button so I can put it on mine :)

    And that old guy? OMG too funny! And you know what? I am SO just like you as in I would have stood there and talked to him also, even though I knew he was old and creepy. Sometimes I just don't want to hurt peoples feelings even when they are crazy and psycho!

  3. aw, thanks for the award sweet "yes we are the same person" friend.

    i too hate sushi. it's gross.

    the story about the old man made me laugh. i (used) to get told a lot esp by the old man rivers types that i had an "athletic body" that a good thing b/c when i think "athletic body" i think of a butchy softball player.

  4. You're so sweet. :) Thank you! And it was fun reading those facts about you. That dude from Walmart sounds like a superfreak--hope you never see him again! Gotta say though, I think Jennifer Hudson's pretty fabulous. :) I loved her in the SATC movie, and I think her voice (and her body!) is killer.

  5. Congrats on the award! And I'm with you on the pickles and pepper - so good :)


  6. I wanted to come and say thank you on here yesterday but I didn't have access to a computer and my blackberry wouldn't let me comment :(

    So THANK YOU. You're way too kind. xo

    Also, loved reading about you! Seriously fun :)


  7. OMG - I eat pepper on everything! It's best in ketchup, on the fries. OMG, to die for. Then on eggs, my second fave.

    Jennifer Hudston totally bugs.

    And yes, those things only happen to you. LOL

  8. LOL...I'm sorry but #3 was hilarious. Some old men are so freakin' creepy.

    Loved reading this post girl :)
