Awards! + Red, White and...Oh, Hello Kitty!

I have received two awesome blog awards!
The first is the Stylish Blogger Award, from the gorgeous and very stylish Christina!

For this award I am supposed to list 5 random things about myself...so here goes:

1.) I LOVE school and office supplies. Like, I have a sick obsession with them. Might just be the teacher in me but oh MAN I love them. Back to School shopping has always been my favorite thing, EVER.

2.) I have a very eclectic taste in music. For example, I love alternative/indie/emo stuff but little makes me feel happier (or cooler) than listening to rap/hip-hop music. I could also probably win the world series of "Name that Tune"...I listen to a LOT. And music never leaves my head.

3.) I am the oldest of 3 children...and I love my brothers more than life itself. My family is pretty tight-knit.

4.) When I'm with the people I am closest to (parents, brothers, BFF, etc.), I tend to use a lot of cuss words. The F word is certainly not a stranger to my vocabulary...and yet I never slip up around my students. lol If you didn't know me well you would probably be surprised. I also tend to use improper grammar and I get a little twangy when I return to my very small, country-ish hometown.

5.)I have a tendency to leave partially full bottles of water around the house. I just drink some and then leave them around. I don't know why I always do it, but I always do.

Now I will tag a few incredibly stylish bloggers that really inspire me:
Alex's Wonderland
Big Beautyful Mess
Curves and Chaos
Weesha's World
Fab Finds Under $50

Next Award is the Versatile Blogger Award, given to me by the lovely Lianna. It requires that I list 7 more random things about myself, so I'll try to keep these more brief.
-I hate mustard and swiss cheese.
-I put vaseline on my lips every night before bed.
-I love Coach everything, a trait I inherited from my Grandmother.
-My favorite color is pink.
-When I was younger I had to have braces and several dental surgeries.
-I love the read but apparently it takes me forever to get through a book.
-I love to travel, and if I could I would do it constantly.

Now I have to give this award to some fabulous blogs I've recently discovered:
Texas Love, Life and Fashion
Bombshell Beauty
T Minus, T Plus

In other news, my 4th of July was spent with the BFF, Vi, and some other friends at the beach. Afterwards, we had a little cookout and went to the fireworks. This is what I wore after the beach (and I let the beach do my hair...lol):

I felt like being cutesy, so I went for the American-themed Hello Kitty. I even got a compliment from a little girl at the fireworks. :)
T-Shirt: Torrid, $25.60 with discount
Tank: Torrid, $12 on sale
Skirt: mark. reversible skirt, $ 18.20 (rep discount)
Shoes: Oh yeah, I was at the beach, so they were unnecessary ;)

Don't forget to enter my giveaway! Ends tonight! Winner tomorrow!

  3. Thank you for including me in your list!

    I tend to leave bottles of water around too. I have one in just about every room in the house, and I just end up tossing them because I think they're gross afterwards. I love school supplies too. I have no excuse to buy them though. After I graduated from college I would still go and load up on all the cute stuff and it just sits there now.
