Have yourself a merry few Blog awards...

First and foremost:

Can I get a "W-T-F" over the loss of Brittany Murphy??? I think like the lot of you, my jaw dropped when I saw the headline. I loved her mainly for 2 reasons:

1. "Rolling with the Homies..."
2. Her huge, infectious laugh.

How sad to lose you! RIP Britt.

AND my little precious ones,
I'm a wee bit overdue for some Blog Awards from some beautimous Bloggers.

First... I received this award from the lovely Kim at KimberDoll. A very cute, pretty blog that I always love to check out so please give it a look-see!
Secondly, I received the "Happy Award" from Ocean Dreams, another great Blog which I'm sure you will greatly enjoy if you read my blog.

1. List 10 things that make you happy.

10 things that make me happy:
  1. Feeding the Squirrels in my yard. They come when I call now.

  2. Gettin' my hair did.

  3. Holiday drinks like the ones The Boy and I enjoyed this weekend

  4. Pashminas.

  5. Photography. My outlet.
    (the key to the beauty of this picture I took below is at the bottom of it...)

  6. The Hangover.

  7. THE DUCKS and NOT the Beavers. (see below)

  8. EXERCISE! Clears the head.

  9. These rings below by Betsey Johnson and her funky style in general. (saw these at The Rack ps)

  10. Park City, Utah - BEAUTIFUL.

    And FINALLY...

The Owl's Closet gave me the "So Sweet!" award. Love to shop and Blog? CHECK HER OUT!

Rules: List 10 random facts about yourself.
  1. I'm Italian/Irish.

  2. I will never get a Tattoo in my life. To each their own and I definitely like them on some people but I am FAR too fickle to commit to skin artwork permanently.

  3. I met Justin Timberlake and spoke with him one-on-one when we were in Urban Oufitters. He wasn't very nice with no cameras around.

  4. I think Chris Rock is one of the funniest comedians in the world.

  5. I have a weird thing for Vin Diesel. He's really hot to me.

  6. My Sis and I were HUGE fans of J&K+8 PRE-drama, and I was genuinely sad when they split up and their announcements of it made me tear up.

  7. I have tanned for years yet quit in May of 2009 and haven't tanned since. Everyone has their vices and let's just say I miss everything about my regular 12-minute nap in the Sun! But I'm staying strong in abstaining from it.

  8. I am an Alpha Phi alumni and have fond memories from my Sorority. However, I often forget that I was a "sorority girl" - not as die-hard as some.

  9. I love to Ski and am quite capable at doing it. Thankfully Oregon is wonderful for that.

  10. I have had 2 surgeries on my eye- as explained in my first ever Blog post.. It makes me, Me.

    And because I get overwhelmed with the tagging part of these awards, I'm going to tag 5 ladies to pick a Blog Award (or three) to post on as all the awards are quite similar and I love all of these gals' blogs:

    1. Leah of Leah.
    2. Yvonne of A Sweet Escape
    3. Nathalie of Accessory Pirate
    4. Gia of Vintage Traffic.
    5. Jennifer of I know, Right?

So that's what I have for you today folks! Have a good one and I can't wait to read more Blogs as we get closer to Christmas... time for me to get some shopping done!

Caitlin, you made me ecstatic...three awards in one day. I just woke up and I was greeted by these awards. You made my day. (It's 8am in Manila.)

I was also obsessed with tanning for a while. I always wish I had those island girls' tan. But now, since my doctor told me to stay away from the sun for fear of having skin cancer, I did what I was told.

Happy holidays Caitlin! Thanks for these early Christmas presents. Big hugs!

Love your list and thanks for posting the award, Betsey Johnson is the best, love her funky style.

So sad about Brittany and just read your comment..."Rollin with the homies!"

Enjoy your week leading up to Christmas! XO!

It's strange how people in other parts of the world love tanning, here we are obsessed with whitening and being as fair as we can be lol:P
