Blog Awards Just for YOU

What is with the love around here these days? You'd think it was Valentine's Day or something! I received two darling awards from two darling ladies this week and I didn't want to waste any time passing them along!


The first came from Krystal at Krystal's Kitsch. Thank you so much, pretty lady! The rules are to pick five words that summarize your blogging philosophy, motivation and experience.

1. Fun: I like to post about fun, lovely things most of the time. I like to bring a smile to your face and a little inspiration to your day!

2. Personal: I'm very personal here. As you know from a recent post, I like to keep it real and honest. You won't find anything fake here.

3. Touching: Everyday I think about the relationships that I've found through the blog world and it leaves me speechless. Some of these ladies I have made lasting friendships with, they will certainly be at my wedding. Thank you so much.

4. Southern: You will always see a little bit of southern charm sprinkled into my posts. Even if it's referring to my readers as 'y'all.' I'm proud of my roots and never want to forget them.

5. Charming: I love to find charming, interesting blogs.They truly are my favorite!

I'm passing this award to some of my recent favorite finds!

This second award was given to me by my sweet friend Trishy. Thank you, my love! The rules for this award are to write out ten things about myself and pass along to ten blogs. It was five but Trish broke the rules and so am I :)

1. I love fresh flowers! Outside, inside, doesn't matter! Peonies are my absolutely favorite. I can't wait to carry a big bouquet of them at my wedding!

(via we heart it)

2. I'm slowly falling in love with.....mustaches!! Thanks, Sum, lol. I think they are just so cute and charming. Don't you?


3. I love popcorn and peanut M&Ms, I think I've told you all this before, haven't I? I had some on Monday night while watching Toy Story. Mmmmmmm.

 (via google)

4. I love architecture. Beautiful exteriors just take my breath away. Sometimes I love to just drive around and look at homes, store fronts, theatres, etc. It's the little things.

 (via we heart it)

5.  I like dangly earrings. Who would've thought? Unless it's a Sunday morning and I need to wear my pearls, you will always see me in dangly earrings.

(via we heart it)

6. I'm stealing this one from Trishy. My favorite fast food? Pal's! It's a local chain and their food is yum! Just burgers and hotdogs, but they have the BEST sweet tea (and peach tea) ever! Everyday they post a little inspirational line on their sign out front. It's just the cutest place ever.

 (via google)

7. I'm a Twihard. There I admitted it. I love it. I've read all the books. I'm Team Edward. But I think Jacob is the hotness. Especially when he transforms into a werewolf. I'm quite jealous of Ms. Swan. Oh, and Alice and I need to be BFF.

(via google)

8. I'm a stationery addict. I love cute note cards and address labels. My next stationery purchase? An address stamper!


9. I hate doing laundry. With a passion. There is no household chore that gets to me more than laundry.

(via we heart it)

10. My recent favorite photo find? This one I found yesterday....

Peonies mean a spring wedding. I'll file that away :)

And Pal's???? You're making me hungry!!!! My aunt and cousin went to ETSU last week for his orientation and had Pal's for breakfast. I thought it was a brilliant idea! Frenchie Fries, please!

I can tell by the photo that I would love Pals!

Mama Pea said...

Popcorn and peanut M&Ms sounds like a really good idea.... I will be trying it soon for sure :) Also, love those yellow heels.

C said...

Popcorn and (plain) m&ms is one of my favorite snacks too. I actually don't like m&ms any other way!

Heather said...

STOP IT! Are you from Johnson City? I've been to Pal's twice and maybe even climbed on that hot dog in my college days w/ some of my best friends and now husband. Also, so obsessed w/ Eclipse right now...amazing! Hope you've seen it!

georgia ~ gi gi said...

There is alot of love going around for sure! My little heart is bursting!
Thank you so much, you are just so sweet!
My little blog is so thrilled to get it's second award!

Miss Sweet Tea said...

Cute! I loved learning some fun things about you! This Pals place sounds AWESOME! I looooooove food so this is right up my alley :) And I'll admit that I wasn't on the original Twilight bandwagon, but now I'm definitely into it. Haha, I only saw the first two maybe 3 months ago, but I'm so excited for Eclipse!!! The address stamper you linked is so cute, I might need one.

I only really disagree with you on one thing and that's the fact that I LOOOOOVE doing laundry! I love the idea that something dirty comes out clean and warm and fresh! I love folding all the towels and matching the socks...I think I'm in the minority on this one, though!

Have a great day, Julie!

Valerie said...

Congratulations on your awards, Julie!!! And thank you so much for passing one to me! I appreciate it. It's fun hearing more about you. Laundry is one of my dreaded chores as well.
