I'd Like to Thank the Academy...

Andrea @ Decorating Cents, you made my day! Thank you so much for this award, really. I was having that kind of a week, you know the husband on call too much, take the baby to the dentist, grocery shop in the rain,look like a wet dog, headachey, on the phone with tech support forever, door-to-door sales woman "you-whooing" me at the door, so that I'm tricked into opening the door and listening to a luh-ong schpill, car gets rear-ended kind of week? Yeah. It was that awesome. And then, I got this little gem, which, let's be honest, would of been the highlight of any week. It's good to know people actually read this blog. I know you're out there, but you have to admit, you're a quiet bunch, and sometimes, I just hear crickets. Chirp, chirp...So, after ALL of that, thank you Andrea for giving me this award!

Here are the rules:
1. Thank the person who gave it to you (check).
2. Share seven things about yourself (seven very deep, meaningful things like my love for chocolate chip cookies and Real Housewives, deep).
3. Nominate 10 blogs you have been enjoying lately (only 10?).

Seven Things:
1. My favorite foods are soft chocolate chip cookies (not too many chips, please), good bread, and salads that someone else makes. Don't ever ask me to give up complex carbohydrates. It will never, ever happen.
2. I cry when I see other people cry, even if it's on tv.
3. I HATE working out my lower body, especially lunges.
4. Guilty pleasure(s): The Real Housewives. Every episode is like a train wreck, I tell you. I just can't seem to pull myself away.
5. I have had the best time of my life in my 10 years of marriage. During that time, I have been by the hubs through undergrad, medical school, an internship, now a residency, and soon a fellowship. I'm not going to lie. I can't wait until he goes into private practice and makes real money. I'm just being honest. Money's not everything, but I really like it. A lot.
6. I have the cutest daughter in the entire world. She's almost two, and sometimes I literally cry just thinking about how quickly she is growing up. Is this normal?
7. I may or may not be OCD. Okay, I am definitely OCD...or CDO. "It's like OCD, but all the letters are in alphabetical order as they should be." via pinterest

10 Blogs I'm Digging Lately:
1. Becoming Betty
2. Little Miss Momma
3. Alamode
4. A Thoughtful Place
5. Hare Styling
6. eighteen25
7. 6th Street Design School
8. Paralyzed with Joy
9. Nesting Place
10. Simply Sadie Jane


  1. Congrats, Jamie!! It's always nice to have something good happen on a not-so-good week! You are awesome

  2. I love finding out more about you, so I think you could've done a few more than seven facts about yourself! And I'm glad that you picked MY blog as one of your 10 favorites!
