Somebody Thinks I’m Amazing

June 27, 2011 · 23 comments

Obviously, I think it’s pretty great when people tell me I’m amazing.

go ahead. tell me again.

Which is why when Lindsey from Happy or Hungry passed me the Amazing Blogger Award, she became my new favorite.

I am all over this.

Remember in middle school (okay, maybe high school, too) when we’d all forward around these surveys to fill out and send onto our bffs? It’s like that now. I’m reverting to those days.

Ah well, at least I’m not the only one. ;)

So, thanks, Lindsey, for totally reinforcing the message I’ve been sending all along. There’s no time like the present to NOT be a grownup.

And I’m totally loving the British spelling all throughout this thing. I’m totally taking it back to my Brit days and leaving it as is (for new readers, I lived in England when I was little).

What is your favourite cartoon character?

It’s no secret I had a Little Mermaid obsession as a child. I know all Ariel’s songs and I had her sheets. But it was also my life dream to be Cinderella when I grew up.

But… can I just point out that Demetri from Anastasia is the best looking Disney character of them all?

(source) I speak the truth. Bumpy nose and all.

What is your favourite thing to photograph?


When you have one of these, why would you want to photograph anything else?

What is your favourite thing to cook?


Baking is way more fun. And it produces dough for me to eat.

What is your favourite way to exercise?

Let’s get serious. My favicon is a girl running with a glass of wine. ;)

I love running. I don’t really adore doing anything else.

Except maybe shakin’ mah groove thang. There’s evidence to prove I love doing that.




Wonder where I get that from.

MOM.

What is your favourite movie?

Let’s take a minute to think…

I think I’ve decided.

Dear Jason Bourne Matt Damon, I’m still waiting for you to leave your wife and baby to come lift weights with me.

What is your favourite article of clothing?

Gimme a pretty dress all the time. I could live in dresses forever.



oh shoot. how’d that get in there?

What is your favourite flower?

Gerber daisies. I love how bright and happy they are.

What is your favourite breakfast?

This guy.

Boop.

What is your favourite book?

Right this second, I’m learning so much through Captivating.

But, the “favorite books of all time” title goes to the Something Borrowed series as well as Jodi Picoult’s Change of Heart and The Pact.

Now I’m supposed to pass the Torch of Amazingness onto some other blog babies I assume will enjoy filling this out too. Meg, I’m not including you. Not because I don’t love you, but because you told me you never do these. ;)

Lisa @ I’m an Oakie
Steph @ The Almost Runner
Colleen @ The Lunchbox Diaries
Gracie @ Girl Meets Life

I’ve got a lot of blog catching up to do tonight. And the Ohio family wedding recap will come tomorrow after I can steal all of my cousin’s pictures. Catch ya then!

I definitely had Ariel sheets when I was little too. My sister and I used to “play” Little Mermaid. I used to always be Ariel and made her be Flounder, haha!! My poor little sister always got to be the less important ANIMAL character while I was the pretty leading lady. We still laugh about it! :)

Yay for being amazing!

I am a little late on this, Anastasia is my all-time favorite animated movie ever…but it’s not Disney! :) I used to think it was too. Did you know it’s based on a true story? )
