I'm Not Worthy!

I'm so excited to have gotten a "Stylish Blogger" award from the uber talanted Fran from Green Street. Truth be told, I'm not so sure how stylish I am but one thing is for sure...

I love me some awards!

It's funny, but anytime someone says "You've won an award" (which doesn't happen very often, incidentally) my mind goes right to that "Christmas Story" movie where the father wins that hideous leg lamp and brags to all his friends and neighbors that "I won it... it's a major award!"

I don't know why, but that just kills me!

Now, for the 7 things about myself...

1. I don't wear socks. No matter the temperature, outfit or occasion, never.
I hate the little seams that go across the toes.
They bother me to the point of distraction.
It would take 30 minutes in the morning before school
for me to adjust and re-adjust the location of the seam
just to be able to put on my shoes.

2. I have been to all 50 States and all the Providences in Canada.

3. I attended Catholic school for 12 years (4 of which were girls only) before going on to college
where I was majoring in Nursing and Biology.

4. Back in the day, I had a huge crush on Steve from the children's show,
"Blue's Clues".
I thought he was so sweet and so good with children.
Very "boy next door-ish".
I wont get all into that weirdness...
(In fact, maybe we should just keep that one to ourselves, OK?)

5. While I was in College, I worked at Grosse Pointe Indoor Tennis Club
as a USPTA tennis teaching professional.
I helped develop and implement the tiny tots program.
Super fun job!!!

6. Some of you may already know this, but I have an incredible weakness for fabric. All kinds of fabric. It's my achilles heal.

I also collect skeleton keys from all over the place.
In my last home I had them displayed on a wall in the entryway.

7. Last but not least, I started this blog because of my Sister-in-Law.
We live quite a long distance from each other
and even though we were always friendly with one another,
we weren't exactly good friends.
Almost one year ago, I was in Connecticut visiting.
It was on that trip that we discovered our mutual obsession with interior design.
We really bonded over blogs and decided to jump to the otherside
and start our own blogs.
Without her encouragement, support and ever positive attitude,
I would never have started blogging.

Thanks Fran!!!
