GUESS WHAT GUESS WHAT!
iwonmyfirstblogaward(s)!!!!!!!

So, I check my comments this morning, and 3 people have told me that they gave me an award. Three! I almost cried. For real. Thank you guys soooo much! Here they are! Along with the rules, and the lovlies I'm passing them over to! (I'm narrowing it down a bit, since all together I'd have to send them to 22 people! ah!)

Wow! I'm versatile!

Rules.
1.  Thank and link back to the person who gave you the award
2.  Answer 10 questions
3.  Pass it along to 7 blogs you've recently discovered and enjoy
4.  Leave your recipients a note, telling them about the award 

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! This one is from Grace over at Loving Life. She's basically the sweetest thing ever. Grace always leaves me nice comments which makes me love her! Her blog is sooo cute, and she's one of my favorites! Check her out, you'll love her too! I promise :)

1. Why did you create this blog?
I created this blog to get my ideas out there, make some friends, and just have a place to be me! Over the few months that I've had it, it's finally starting to come along. I loveee blogging and I'm so glad I decided to do it!
2. What kind of blogs do you follow?
I follow a lot of fashion blogs, inspirational blogs, and a few mommy blogs. haha :) I really just like reading and getting to know people that I find interesting or funny! I'm always open to finding new ones!
3. Favorite make up brand?
Hm. I don't know if i have a favorite. I don't like to spend a lot of money on make up, so I usually just go for whatevers on sale :) I do have a sort of obsession with my Mary Kay power foundation though :) It's cheap, and it works reallllly well!
4. Favorite clothing brand?
Again, I really just like whatever is inexpensive and cute! I love Forever 21 for that reason. 
5. Your indispensable make up product?
My Mary Kay powder foundation. I'm telling you, it's perfect!
6. Favorite color?
Yellow! And pink and green. I'm like a six year old, I have 3 favorite colors :)
7. Favorite perfume?
Pink by Lacoste. I also have one called Young Sexy Love that is greattt :) I can't remember who it's by.
8. Favorite movie?
This is hard! I loveeee movies. Really. Like, I could watch pretty much any movie. Except for horror. I just can't do that. Let's see though. Some of my favorites are 500 Days of Summer, Billy Madison (haha), and Once. All good movies :)
9. What country would you like to be able to visit and why?
I have been dying to visit Italy forever. Luckily, I'm studying abroad in Germany next year which is like...next door to Italy! Yay!
10. Would you rather forget to put on mascara on one eye, or blush on one cheek? 
Hm. I'd say blush. I don't really wear very much, so i bet nobody would even notice! :)

Rules:
1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.

So I got this award from two of the most wonderful blogs out there. I'm honored, to say the least. Thank you Kelsey from Eat, Drink, Be a Tourist and Ashley from the Heart of Life is Good. I love both of their blogs, and I think you would too! Kelsey was one of the first blogs that made me keep on bloggin'. She's just so nice! And Ashley said "Bliggity Blog" in her comment to me, which basically makes her my favorite person in the world. Thanks girlies!

7 Things About Me:
1. My lucky number is 24 because when I was in first grade, my locker number was 24 and the boy I had a crush on had the locker next to me. But the number has always stuck, and it makes me happy :)
2. If I don't wear my contacts or glasses, I'm pretty much blind. And I will see things that don't exist. My friends like to make the "Melissa can't see" face. (squinting reallllly hard) But sometimes I like to spend a couple hours without either glasses or contacts, because it gives my eyes that "I've had socks on my feet for hours, and I take them right off before I go to bed and it feels so good" feeling. You know what a mean? Kinda? Maybe? Okay maybe it's just me.
3. I lived in Connecticut for 13 years, and moved to North Carolina right before I started 8th grade. I hated it for about 6 months, but now I know it's where I was meant to be!
4. Ever heard of the Junie B. Jones books? Well, I started reading them in 2nd grade and never stopped. I have every single one. I just love them!
5. While I lived in Connecticut, my nickname was Missy. When I moved to North Carolina, I decieded I wanted to be called Melissa. My college friends called me Mel, Melly, or Smelly (yeah.) I love having so many nicknames!
6. I have an obsession with names,  middle names, and nicknames. I have the names for all 4 of my future children picked out! Oh you want to hear them? Well okay... Matthew Whiting, Eleanor Margaret, Abigail Grace, and Bennett James. They all have significant meanings.
7. I'm trying super hard to start a small photography business. Why not make a bit of money off of something I love?

I'd like to give this award to...
Nuha at Habibi
Kristine at Kristine. Or Polly
Linsey at Cultura Nueve


And there you have it!
Have a fabulous day, everyone! I know I am :)
