One Lovely Blog Award

Thank you Lauren @ Always Me for nominating me for this award!  If you're not already following her you really should start now.

The rules:
  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you.
  2. List the rules and display the award button.
  3. Give seven facts about yourself.
  4. Nominate fifteen other bloggers for the award and make sure you notify them.
  5. Display the award button on your blog and follow the blogger who nominated you.
Seven facts:
  1. My aunt and I share the same birthday (though not the same year); also birthday related, one of my friends was born exactly 364 days after me.
  2. I'm obsessed with Star Wars and counting down the days until The Force Awakens; I've also, from the trailers, determined that my favorite character is Poe Dameron and I have three different Poe action figures (which drives my mother crazy).
  3. Dragons are the very best and I collect dragon statues, though I haven't gotten one in several years.
  4. I love playing board games, particularly Risk, Family Business, and Settlers of Catan.  My cousins, brother, and I have spent countless hours playing board games and it's always great fun.
  5. I'm really sensitive with my eyes and every time someone comes too close to them I've either fainted or gotten so nauseous and dizzy I have to lie down.  Part of the reason I'm not fond of going to the eye doctor.
  6. While I don't really read them unless it's for class, I really enjoy novels about war.
  7. I'm learning to crochet!  My dad knows and he's been teaching me really slowly.
I nominate:


  1. I can't wait for the newest Star Wars movie! I'd see it opening day if i weren't so busy - I'll be seeing it Tuesday at the earliest. Hope you love it!

    I know how to crochet, too, but it's been awhile since I've done it that I may have to relearn it.

    A couple of war book must reads are All Quiet on the Western Front and The Things They Carried.

    Great post and thanks for the shout out! Happy weekend!

    1. I've read both those books and loved them dearly! The Things They Carried is actually one of my favorite books (top five for sure); it's so powerful! I try to get people to read it all the time but they're often turned off by the content.

  2. Funny enough, my parents share the same birthday though my father is three years older than my mother. And, one of my sisters and one of my grandmothers also share a birthday hahaha I think it's hilarious
    I've only watched the last three of the Star Wars movie (the ones with Natalie Portman) and I don't know if I will be watching the new one just because none of my friends are really into them and I should see the oldest movies but I can't bring myself to it LOL
    And yes, dragons are the best thing ever!

    1. That's seriously cool!

      I would definitely recommend watching the Original Trilogy someday, but you do have to be in the mood for them. There are some things from them that are kinda outdated, but the story is still pretty good.

      Thanks for stopping by!


Thank you so much for commenting! I love to hear from you and try to respond to comments once or twice a week. Thank you for your patience :)
