{thanks for the award!}

Wow, I'm honored to receive the Stylish Blogger award from the lovely Cassie over at Reuse Reinvent Redesign and the fabulous Mary Ann at Classic Casual Home! Thanks to you both!

When receiving this award the rules are to:

1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Award to 10 great bloggers.
4. Contact those bloggers and tell them about the award.

So to start, here are 7 funny little facts about me:

1. I have a huge extended Egyptian family ... think speaking loudly and waving your hands ... think 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding.'

2. I am 5'1.5", and the half an inch really counts. Needless to say, many jokes about being 'vertically-challenged' have been thrown my way!

3. I am a steak and potatoes kinda girl. Oh, and sushi ... and chocolate chip cookies :)

4. Some of my earliest memories are of sitting at the kitchen table coloring for hours and hours. My dad taught me how to 'shade' with pencil crayons.

5. I have naturally curly hair that I straighten 90% of the time. Vancouver weather is moist people!

6. I LOVE Christmas. It's my favorite! I kinda wish the year just alternated from Christmas to summer and back again :)

7. I am a girly girl, I love clothes/shoes/bags but I usually end up putting my house before my wardrobe ... nothing makes me happier than a new chair or throw pillow!

Now, the pay it forward part! I've decided to follow Cassie's lead and award this to bloggers who, like me, have under 200 followers. Be sure to check out these lovely reads!

2. Wallpaper
3. Lisa Goulet Design
4. Jax Does Design
5. Flights of Whimsy
6. theLennoxx
7. Mo' Funk Designs
8. Desire to Decorate
9. Kerrisdale Design Inc
10. Divine Distractions

Thanks again for the award!

Hhahah! I talk with my hands flying all over the place, and I'm not Greek or Egyptian! ;-)

Thanks for the award, Nancy :-) I'll be posting my seven things soon :-)

Lisa said...

Thanks so much for the Stylish Blogger award! I'm very honoured. I will have to do some thinking for my 7 things about myself.


Mo @ mofunkdesignsblog said...

I am so honoured thank you. I'm up to 7 followers, maybe now I can get a few more. *smile* I'm having so much fun, but will have to really sit down and think about what to write for myself...

Thank you for the award Nancy - much appreciated! I've now have four fabulous bloggers to thank for passing on this award to me so I think I'll do a special combined Thank You post - featuring your banner - for this Thursday or Friday. Thanks so much!!! :)

Nancy, this is so fun to read. You are a little biddy girl!! My Bf is the same height and she is 3in. shorter than myself. That is the only time I feel tall is when I stand next to her!!! I was thinking about your family in Egypt today when I was watching the news, They are still in my prayers and thoughts, Love your straight hair and I bet I would love your curly hair too.

I am like Kelly, no Italian, Greek or Egyptian, but I can not talk without the use of my hands, Kathysue

Andrea Johnson said...
