and the award goes to...

I have put off posting about these lovely awards given to me by two of my all-time favy blog friends! So this post is going to be a two-for-one, sort of like we are at the Oscars and I won 'Best Actress' AND 'Best Supporting Actress'...don't laugh...someday it will happen.

Here is award #1!

The first award was given to me by the always inspiring Ashton Dene (she is awesome; we are going to create 'Butterbeer' and become millionaires together). Thanks Aston! This is the 'Kreativ Blogger' award...

There are of course rules:

-Share 7 things that you don't already know about me.

-Name 7 other blogs to receive this award.

-Thank the person who gave me the award.

So, seven things that you do not already know about me is kind of hard because I talk a lot...and tell people everything but I shall try.

Seven things you may or may not know about me:

{1.} I give money to homeless people 95% of the time. Before you tell me that they are probably billionaires who scam people for a living let me just say, I am sure some people don't actually need the money that they beg for...but some do. I would rather give money/food to someone who is scamming me then not give money/food to someone who is truly in need of it.

{2.} I am attracted to men with red hair. Weird, right? Most people are not into 'gingers' but I am! Although, only certain red-headed men are attractive...I will not go into the distinction between a hot red-head and a not-so-hot red-head because I don't want to make anyone feel bad! 'Nuff said...

{3.} I have a tattoo on my foot that I am not all that fond of. I have mentioned that before on this blog...but it is really starting to bug me.

{4.} Even though I hate my foot tattoo I am considering getting another one. I am dying to have 'Let It Be' on my side in like SUPER tiny font. Preferably the saying repeated in peace sign shape form...does that make sense? No? Okay picture a peace sign...now picture said peace sign composed of 'Let It Be' written over and over...get it?

{5.} I listen to my iPod while driving. I know it is 'technically' against the law but I do it anyways...because I love to turn it up as loud as possible and sing with it and pretend I am ACTUALLY the one singing. I do this with musical soundtracks...it. is. awesome.

{6.} I own seven pairs of Vans slip-ons. I love them something fierce. I have polka-dot ones, striped ones, flamingo ones...the list goes on and on and on. They are tacky and I embrace it...

{7.} I don't want to have children. Unless you count the ones I already have. If you are wondering what I am talking about...refer here. Please, do not patronize me and tell me that I will change my mind...that may be true...but probably not.

Alright...now it is time for award #2!

The lovely Connie gifted me with the 'Happy 101' award. Connie is one of the first blog friends that I made...and she is an absolute doll! Thanks Connie!

The rules for this award are short and sweet.

-List ten things you are happy about.

-Pass the award along to ten other bloggers.

Ten things I am currently happy about (in no particular order):

{1.} I am happy that the craft blog, 'Three Crafty Biiitches' looks like it may be a hit! After months of discussing it with my two favorite crafters (my pal Jil & my Mama) we finally have something up and running! Also, if any of YOU have some ideas of what you would like to see in our little shoppe please share (why yes I did use 'shoppe' instead of 'shop' because it looks far more awesome)!

{2.} I am happy that I purchased the cutest boyfriend blazer ever. I haven't worn it yet but I am in some serious love with it...

{3.} I am happy that this semester is over in two weeks. Halle-freakin-lujah! I am so over this semester I cannot even begin to explain...

{4.} I am happy that even though I despise group projects I finally am part of a group that is not made up of slackers. They are actually doing their fair share of the work and I heart them for it...

{5.} I am happy that Christmas is right around the corner and I have some really amazing gifts to give! Yeah, Mother yours is awesome...I hope you are dying to know what it is!

{6.} I am really happy that I decided to start a blog. I feel like I have made some really awesome new friends in the short time I have been doing this. I heart you ALL!

{7.} I am happy that I have an amazing family who makes even the hardest of situations bearable. As distasteful as it is a few weeks ago after my Dad's funeral we were all still cracking jokes and making each other laugh.

{8.} I am happy that Robert Pattinson's parents decided to get busy 24 years ago and create him. I mean really the whole female race should be ecstatic about that...

{9.} I am happy that I am now the proud part owner of a 'Cricut'(my mother and I share one) ...this baby is going to make scrapbooking so much more enjoyable. That is, as soon as I figure out how to operate the darn thing!

{10.} I am happy that my internet is FINALLY fixed. It was down the entire weekend and I almost perished because of it...

Here is the thing, I am not picking just ten people to share these awards with. I am breaking the rules! I am gifting them to ALL of you. If you do decide to post them let me know so I can make sure to read what you write!

Or...just leave a comment and tell me some secrety-secret things about YOU or share what YOU are happy about!

Darn, such a pity that I don't have red hair. I'm just a dirty blond dude hoping to make red.
