Versitile Blogger Award :)

     While looking over the new posts for today by the blogs I follow, I saw that the wonderful VijiiS of Fierce Nerditude: Looks and Reviews For Cosmetic Junkies, Glitter Addicts and Makeup Nerds had been nominated for another Versitile Blogger Award (you go girl!) One of the things you're supposed to do when you get the award is say thanks for whomever gave it to you, list seven random things about yourself, and nominate other bloggers for the award. And while looking through her list of bloggers, I saw that I was on that list! I would like to say a huge "thank you"- I never really expected anyone to actually read my blog, much less enjoy it enough to nominate it for an award, so this is quite an honor. So, now it's my turn to list seven random things and nominate some other blogs/ bloggers!

Seven Random Things About Me
1. Even though I was always "the quite girl" in school, I am very opinionated. I can get along with almost anyone and I'm a firm believer in the golden rule, but I don't take crap off of anyone. Thankfully, I'm rarely in situations where I have to be anything less than pleasant :)
2. One of my favorite summer activities is having bonfires! My twin sister and I like to have them in our field behind our house though, which means they usually get no larger than a larger- sized campfire. They still roast a mean marshmallow (or weenie!)
3. I love my job. I work as a team member for Tractor Supply Company, and even though I usually work the front of the store (register/ seasonal/ clothing/ et c.), I still love getting to help customers. And even if I don't always know the answers to their questions, I'm glad that I can always send them in the direction of some one who can.
4. I've never been mudding. My sisters love it, and not that I mind getting dirty (um hello, I live on a farm, for Pete's sake), I just can't justify getting dirty just for the sake of getting dirty. Plus, I hate doing extra laundry!
5. I am obsessed with Spike TV's show Coal. New episodes air on Wednesday nights at 10. One of the coolest things about the show? I watch it with my daddy, who was a coal miner for seven years a while before I was born, and he gives the most interesting commentary ever. Also, the mine is only about an hour to an hour and a half drive away from where I live, and I went to high school with one of the men from the show's son! Cool much?
6. I have an accent. To me, it's not obvious (obviously), but I talk somewhat slow, with a drawl. It's pretty common around where I live, but it seems like whenever I go anywhere outside of my little dot on the map I get alot of "I like your accent!" Sometimes I have to repeat myself, too. I asked a lady at the McDonalds at the Smithsonian in Washington DC, "Do y'all have any sweet tea?" and she looked at me like I had just grown a third eyeball out of my forehead. Her reply? "Excuse me?"
7. Speaking of sweet iced tea, I love the stuff. I might as well have an IV drip filled with it.

Bloggers & Their Blogs
-Jill of Just Peachy. She's a country girl like me and rides horses, too! What's not to love? She has some of the coolest posts- about a month ago she did a series where she made her own bath and body products and compared them to indie sellers' products- too cool!

-Ki of Ki and Makeup. I'm still pretty new to Ki's blog, but she has such great swatches that I just want to *squee*! Buying online is hard (especially when it comes to indie brands), but great swatches make it better :)

-Laur of Laur's Beauty Blog. This is one of the first blogs I really started following, and it's one of my favorites. Laur is so sweet, and her reviews are really helpful.

-Thu of Editions of Me . I love seeing her LOTDs. She really has a knack for color combinations! She also does posts for Painted Ladies.

     Even though my cow had her baby yesterday evening, I haven't had the chance to take pictures yet, but hopefully I will get to tomorrow! I'm trying to think of a name for her. Right now I'm really liking "Angelene," but I'm still thinking (any suggestions?) Also, I have pictures ready to go for a tropical beach- inspired prom eye look, so hopefully I will have a post up on it tomorrow night!
     **Just a quick update, I was just informed that Coal has been moved to 8PM on Sunday nights. Just thought I would share!**


  1. Awww thank you!!! :D
    I can't wait to see your look :)

  2. Aww, thanks! Some very interesting facts about yourself. I'm not one for mudding either. I work for a timber company and it pisses me off to no end when people do it on our property! And that is so awesome about the show Coal. I haven't watched it yet, but my husband has been! I'll try to get a post up about the award this weekend. I'm headed out of town for a few days for work right now.

  3. Working in tractor supply store sounds much more fun than working in a public library. I'm always so happy to help a friendly customer, but so scared of the psychotic ones.

  4. @ Ki & The Peach: Y'all are so welcome!
    @ Ki: Thanks! They're bright and were fun to do!
    @ The Peach: That would be so annoying! I hope you have a nice time on your trip :)
    @ VijiiS: Except for when it's very slow, it's not bad at all. I've always dreamed of working in a library, lol! Even though I don't get to read as much as I would like to, I'm a hardcore bibliophile!
