and the award goes to...

So, I was gifted with two very high honors; the Kreativ Blogger award, and the Beautiful Blogger award! Yay, for awards! So since I have already been granted the Kreativ Blogger award (feel free to go and read those interesting facts if you are so inclined), I am only going to do the Beautiful Blogger award! Thanks to my online lovah Sam for passing this award my way! He is pretty much legit and my twss-partner-in-crime. This is the utmost truth. Go and read his hilarity if you do not already do so!

Here are the rules for the Beautiful Blogger award:
1. Thank the blogger who gave you the award.
2. Paste the award on your bloggity blog.
3. Link to the person who nominated you for the award
4. Share 7 interesting facts about yourself.
5. Nominate 7 other bloggers.

Now here go 7 'interesting' things about yours truly:

{1.} My favorite scent in the world is the smell of a new plastic shower curtain. Yep. You did read that correctly. I pretty much enjoy the smell of plastic in general. Shower curtains, pool floaties, you get the idea. I l-o-v-e it. No joke.

{2.} I am sort of a neat-freak. This is not news to many of you. However, there is one household chore that makes me cringe. I absolutely despise vacuuming. I will put it off for as long as humanly possible. I dislike it so much that I think I would rather be water-boarded (okay that may be a LITTLE dramatic, but y'all get the idea). Alex+vacuum=pissed. The end.

{3.} I own some of the most ginormous purses that have ever graced this lovely universe of ours. I adore purses. They are my favorite. I typically make sure to purchase bags that can double as a purse and a backpack. You know room for the essentials: binder, highlighters, planner, pens, pencils, post-its, school books, recreational books, bottle of water, sunglasses, wallet, ipod, flip-flops, keys, a few of Bug's toys. Like I said...the essentials. No joke, I could probably survive a nuclear holocaust with the contents of my purse. Truth.

{4.} I bite my nails. Okay, so yes this probably does not qualify as an 'interesting' fact...but hey you all pretty much know everything about me already. So, I am working with a limited information pool. So, yes. I bite my nails and I have done so for as long as I can remember. It is such a sicknast habit. I have been trying really hard to stop. However, I do really well until I get stressed. Basically, my nails grow and the look lovely then I have a test and the moment the test is over I realize I have just chewed my nails to the skin. Lame.

{5.} I am obsessed with flamingos. Yep. That is correct. I collect anything and everything that has a flamingo on it, like a 75 year old Florida woman. Basically, my room is covered in flamingo awesomeness. Why? I have no clue. One day I think I just decided that I love them. I even have Vans Slip-ons with pink flamingos on them. If I ever get hitched...I will wear those shoes. I have passed this flamingo adoration on to my niece...although she prefers to call them, 'mamingos' because she is legit.

{6.} I have had the same car since I was 16 years old. I was gifted with a 1995 Nissan 200SX by my dad when I got my license. It is purple. When I say purple...I mean like Barney the flippin' dinosaur purple. It is a hideous car...but I absolutely adore it. I have SO many good memories from cruising around in 'The Struggle-Buggy'. I am sad that I have to get rid of I will cry when it finally sells. I am sure of this. However, my new wheels have been given the name, 'The Struggle-Buggy Jr.'...

{7.} I am a note taking fool. I take notes about everything. Even if I am just reading a 'for fun' book...I have been known to write in the margins or on a piece of paper I stick in the book. Sometimes I make family trees if they are billions of characters to keep straight. I blame my high school honors English teacher. He was a note enthusiast and brainwashed me into being the exact same way. You should see my binders when school is in...they are insane.

Now it is time for me to bestow this honor on 7 of your lovely folks. I am going to TRY to pick some fresh if I give it to you and you have already done it I apologize in advance! Here we go...

{1.} Sam from 'Simply Sam'
{2.} Kat from 'A Day in the Life'
{4.} Kristin from 'Lost in a Dream'
{5.} Lynn from 'lynn lost in love'
{6.} Sarah from 'Sar-Uh bright-SKI'

And there we have it! Thanks again Sam for the lovely award!

flamingo's are awesome. As soon as I have a lawn I'm so getting those tacky but adorable plastics ones to put in my yard. Penguins will always be number 1, but flamingos are next!

xo, ash

Big purses are, well, the best thing ever! The fact that you always have to turn it upside down before you can even find anything will be ignored ;)

Thanks for the award, my dear! I will post about it asap.
