The blogging world never ceases to amaze me with all the cool/sweet/talented/amazing peeps that you get to meet that you never would have crossed paths with if it wasn't for the good ol' blogosphere...

For instance, cute Julie from Julip Made totally made my day by passing me the Sweetest Blogger Award.

I'm blushing. I'm all pink-cheeked and self concious right now. (c:

Awww...fer sweet, right???

So to accompany my major award (name that movie) are 7 random facts about yours truly:

My new most favorite snack in the whole wide world is cheese and caramel popcorn mixed together. It is AWESOME.

I just ran in a 200 mile relay race about a month ago and because of said running, I lost the toenails on both of my second toes. Ew and icky. As well as very distressing to moi.

I have a bajillion allergies. No really. A BAJILLION. Including a particularly bad one to pistachios. Now if that isn't random, I don't know what is.

I will be listening to this this weekend...


I love, love, *LOVE* pillows...but mostly pillows from this talented gal like this current obsession:


This is an appropriate place to divulge that I am the oldest of *SIX* kids in my hubby is the oldest of *SEVEN*. I have two kiddos and I officially am impressed with anyone who has more!!!

My two rugrats at Halloween...(c:

The number 3 is my lucky whole family always picks this number for our sports uniforms...all thanks to Dale Murphy...MAJOR points for whoever actually knows who that is!

And major points if you actually made it to the end of this crazy post!

Happy Friday everyone!

And I really wish I had thought up a really cool April fools joke...shoot. (c:

Congrats! Have you Garett's popcorn in chicago?! They are known for their caramel cheese mix! They ship anywhere!

Julip Made said...

Love the random facts and am very impressed with the relay. As a soccer player, I can completely relate to having missing/ injured toenails, gross, but an unfortunate reality of being an athlete. I especially appreciate that the pictures of your super cute kiddos were Halloween!

Happy Friday Aubrey!

Awe, thank you for the sweet comment. I love meeting new people on here as well, they're all so amazing. Congrats on the award and I'm totally loving the pillows, too adorable.


Congrats on the award, sweetie! So well deserved :)

Ugh and I lost a toenail once from running. Not fun at all. The worst was when the podiatrist had to remove the part that was still stuck. Yuck! Never felt more pain in my life!

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend xoxo
