Yesterday, JessCause awarded me with the “One Lovely Blog Award” (thanks again!). In return, I share 7 things about myself and pass the award on to another blogger. It’s kind of like a blog-chain-letter, except you’re actually excited to get it and there are no threats involved if you don't participate.

7 things:

1. Contrary to what you may think from today's outfit, I am not affiliated with the girl scouts. Although, I used to be and I really miss those little do-gooder patches and being the first to receive Thin Mints.

2. I love to craft - scrapbooking, jewelry making, sewing. Usually wine and/or Swedish Fish are involved in the making of anything.

3. Whenever I am around a DJ (club, party, wedding) I request "Thriller" by Michael Jackson and I scream in excitement when it comes on while my friends pretend they don't know me.

4. My favorite movie is 'Some Kind of Wonderful' (from 1987) and I not-so-secretly want to be Watts.

5. I kind-of-really want a tattoo of a bird somewhere hidden on my body. But I will never do it. I'm too scared of being 80 with a saggy sparrow staring me in the face.

6. I am obsessed with chapstick/lip gloss. Every time I leave the house I tend to come home with something new for my lips. I have a basket underneath my sink of lip-paraphernalia. Please don't call Hoarders on me.

7. I used to have my nose pierced but my dad and friends told me it looked like a sparkly zit so I took it out.

*7 1/2. I love photography, especially film and using a darkroom. All of the photos on my blog are taken by me :)

I would like to pass the award on to Julie at Mint and Mellow, whose blog I recently started following.

Thanks again, Jess!
