I've been a very bad blogger, but you love me anyways :)

So I have been stashing my awards away for quite some time now, hiding them in a deep dark draft post. But alas I finally have enough time to properly pass on all of the following awards and partake in telling you 32,048,320,954 bajillion more things that you don't know about me! haha

I'm so thankful for all of these awards, and I apologize for taking so long to do this post! Bad Bad Bad Blogger, I know!

So let's get started!

The first award is the Beautiful Blogger Award! This was bestowed upon me by Steph over at Watching Airplanes! Her blog is a crack up, if you aren't a current read of hers you should become one! She has a pretty crazy neighbor!
The rules for this award state that I need to list 7 things about myself and pass it along to 7 Beautiful Bloggers!
1. I had cheerios for breakfast
2. My favorite candy is Sour Punch Straws (I'm salivating just thinking about them)
3. I'm having my windshield replaced AS I TYPE!
4. Josh and I have the same last name, just spelled differently
5. I wouldn't work out if I didn't have the guilt of paying for my gym membership
6. In the winter I often go weeks without shaving my legs - sorry Josh!
