awards, facts, and nominees.

something happened here at the {mr.} and the {mrs.} that has never happened before. i was given an award! i am truly humbled and grateful to simone for nominating me. i love reading other people's blogs and to get to know them through their words. her blog is one of my favs, so be sure to check it out!

there are a few obligations that come attached with this award. seven of them actually:

1 - thank the blogger who nominated you.
2 - include a link to their site.
3 - include the award image in your post.
4 - give 7 random facts about yourself.
5 - nominate 15 other bloggers for the award.
6 - when nominating, include a link to their site.
7 - let other bloggers know they've been nominated.

so to start off with 7 random facts about myself, let's see:

#1 - i use men's razors to shave my legs and pits. {no, not my husband's. sicko.} seriously girls, if you want nice, clean cut, smooth legs, do yourself a favor and buy a men's razor. i used to cut myself all the time  with my venus razor. especially around my knees. i've been using a men's razor for about a year now and haven't cut myself once. go ahead and try it. you can thank me later.

#2 - i hate pork. and i don't have a reason as to why. i know it's all in my head, but it's just dis-gusting to me. i can still remember the day i stopped eating it. it was the summer between my junior and senior year in high school and we were having pulled pork sandwiches for dinner at girl's camp. i turned to my best friend and told her there was no way i could eat it and i thought i was going to be sick. i haven't touched it since. okay, that was a lie. i think it's rude to go to someone's house for dinner and refuse to eat what is in front of you, so i guess i'll say that i haven't touched it since by choice.

#3 - i'm obssessed with animals. mostly baby ones. i've even got the pictures to prove it!

these were all taken over the last month or so. the last one is definitely my favorite. ;) thank heavens for animals!

#4 - i was on a spelling team in elementary school. i was forced to pick between that or being on the math team. it was actually a really tough choice for me. {just call me a nerd} i put hours into practicing spelling words like acetylsalicylate and gubernatorial, which as a second grader were pretty difficult. i ended up winning second place in the district spelling bee when i was in 5th grade. i got out on the word 'zephyr'. i'd never heard the word in my life and i quickly {and sadly} learned that it is not spelled 'zeffeur'. that's okay though because the girl i lost to was an 8th grader and while i got the word zephyr, she got the word 'institute'. can you say "totally not fair!!"?

#5 - my girl celebrity crush is jennifer aniston. are there any other jen fans here? not only is she smokin' hot {no homo}, but she is super funny and can act really well. she is hands down, my favorite 'friends' character and if you haven't seen the movie 'just go with it', you've got to! she does a fantastic job.

#6 - if i had it my way, i would be able to wear flip flops/sandals 365 days a year and my feet would never once get wet. that would solve two problems. 1 - my feet wouldn't get hot from wearing normal shoes and start to sweat and be nasty. {gross, i know} 2 - my feet wouldn't be wet - which is one of my biggest pet peeves. maybe i'll just have to wear waterproof socks with my sandals from now on. because we all know how attractive socks and sandals are.

#7 - i love spontaneity. one of my favorite memories from when the mr. and i were dating is when we randomly grabbed some taco bell, took it to the local airport and watched the stars. i know it doesn't sound like much, but that night, all by ourselves with nothing but some cheap fast food and the crickets to keep us company, will forever be a cherished memory. there's nothing like flying by the seat of your pants and seeing where it will take you!

now, i would like to nominate and hear from these people. check them out yourself. they are some fantastic bloggers!
