I Know That You Like My Style

It has been brought to my attention that I am a stylish blogger. I was flattered and honored to receive the Stylish Blogger Award from not one but two equally fabulous bloggers.

Genuine thanks to both noobventures of pen, paper and a mouse as well as smilelikewoe of Smile Like Woe.

As I understand it, there are four little things I must do along with accepting this award. They are as follows:

  • Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award.
  • Share 7 things about yourself.
  • Award 15 or so recently discovered great bloggers.
  • Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award.

I can already check #1 off of the list. On to the second.

7 Things About Myself

  1. Despite serious anxiety about visiting the dentist, I'm so paranoid about my teeth that I visit the dentist at least twice a year typically.
  2. I have never eaten a PB&J sandwich. Ever.
  3. I'm so emotional that a mere thirty second television ad can make me cry. I mean, if it's sad, of course. Those SPCA commercials get me every time.
  4. I think I could probably live off of pizza forever. Pizza and chocolate. Pizza and chocolate and Starbucks. And bread.
  5. I've never owned any other kind of computer besides a Mac. And I never want to.
  6. When I was a kid, I desperately wanted my parents to buy me a boa constrictor. But they weren't having it. So I wrote and illustrated a small novella (okay, several sheets of notebook paper stapled together and colored with marker) explaining precisely why they should indeed get me one.
  7. I never did get a boa constrictor.

I'm passing the Stylish Blogger Award on to these bloggers, listed in no particular order, of course! Check them out!

Fabulous 35mm — Audree is the queen of movie reviews and red carpet features. But that's not all. She also shares her opinion on books, music, you name it.

Ariel WritesAriel is a delightful young woman and aspiring author of young adult fiction. She blogs about her experiences with writing, among other things.

Mary Malcolm's Awesomely Ordinary Blog — Though I am a contributor on this blog, Mary is the real brains behind Awesomely Ordinary. Mary is a writer, and her blog is indeed awesomely ordinary.

Mus(eum)ings — I love the name of Samantha's blog. The posts are good, too! She's an intern and a museum. How cool is that? It's like a sneak peek behind the scenes.

Starbucks MelodyMelody is a true Starbucks enthusiast and brand ambassador. Her blog is chock full of coffee and coffee related posts. She has tons of great pictures, on top of it all, and is all around a friendly and fun person. Her blog reflects that a hundred times over.

Miss Woodhouse's Musings — Miss Woodhouse is an absolute doll! She's a Starbucks enthusiast and fellow English major. Not to mention an avid reader.

A Dog In My Car — As a dog lover, I particularly appreciate the purpose of this blog. Christine started this blog to help support dog rescue. She shares posts about dogs who need homes or need to be fostered, or both, as well as other related information. It's a great blog.

June's CornerJune is a fabulous woman and her blog is a lot of fun. A fellow book lover, she'd love for you to come hang out in her corner for a chat.

Maggie The ArtistMaggie's blog is full of fun and creative tips and photos. She also blogs about art, being an artist, and life in general. Her blog is a ton of fun.

The Misadventures of a TaschaBear — This delightful blog is maintained by the mythical Reading Bear. It's loaded with book reviews and recommendations. Useful and fun to boot!

All of the above bloggers are definitely fabulous, and totally deserving of the Stylish Blogger Award. I hope you give them all a visit!

YOU ARE MOST WELCOME! :-D You deserve it! Grabbing Starbucks together would be a blast! Alas, it seems we may have to settle for a virtual cup. Haha! :-)

I'm flattered to make your list! I do like your blog. It's very real and it is stylish. You cover friendly things, with a dash of Starbucks in between. I like. ~Melody (I hate math too)

Sarah said...

Why thank you! :) I just can't keep Starbucks out of my posts. I love it way too much!

And of course would make my list! You're definitely one of my top three favorite blogs! And absolutely my number one favorite Starbucks blog!

Samantha said...

*squee!* Thanks so much Sarah- and congrats on your stylish blog award! It's well deserved. :)

Mary Malcolm said...

Thank you, thank you for this award! I am so honored and so humbled by this experience, I had no idea.

Really, there are a lot of people I should thank. First and foremost, my family for always believing in me. It is because of you guys *points into audience* that I came this far. Always, mom, always.

Next, my editor, the fabulous Cindy Davis. Though she did not contribute with this project, she's always there to, well, be there for me. She lifts me up and is the wind beneath my wings and she gives me the jelly for my roll. *wipes a tear*

To Sarah, for nominating me for such an honor! You help make my blog the awesome ordinary amalgamon it is, and I am truly thankful for that.

Last, but possibly most important, my readers! You may not comment, much, but I know you're out there. I can smell you in the air. And my fish aren't dead, so you must be feeding them. Truly, all of this is for you. I love you all!

Thank you, thank you, *music comes on*, thank you!
