Blogger Love: "Tell Me About Yourself Award"

Hi all! Sorry for not posting yesterday - I was having a minor surgery on my eyelid!  All went well and I'm feeling totally fine today. Don't I look cool with an eyepatch?


The best part of my day was receiving these beautiful orchids from my managers. It was a total surprise and I absolutely love them!


The next best part of my day was being nominated for a "Tell Me About Yourself Award" by the lovely Blair Bendel! If you haven't already, please check out her adorable blog - we have very similar taste! :)





The rules of accepting the award are:
  1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you.
  2. Write 7 random things about yourself.
  3. Spread the love to more bloggers!

So, without further ado, here are 7 random things you may not know about me!
  1. I have three tattoos - a tiny shooting star on my left wrist, a lotus blossom on my right wrist and the latitude/longitude of where I studied abroad on my right ribs. All of these tattoos have significance to me and I hope to add one in memory of my Grammy soon.
  2. I'm a vegetarian and have been since I was 11 years old. I love animals wayyy too much to eat them, and no, I NEVER miss eating meat!
  3. I am almost legally blind! My contact prescription is -7 and I cannot see a damn thing without my contacts in or my glasses on.
  4. I was a dancer from the age of 3 until I graduated college! I studied all types of dance: ballet, jazz, tap, modern, musical theater and lyrical.
  5. I'm a hopeless romantic and I dream of getting engaged at the top of the Eiffel Tower, up in the sky in a hot air balloon, in the Newburyport Lighthouse or on a gondola ride in Venice or on the Charles River in Boston.  (Boyfriend, are you listening?)
  6. My birthday is May 20th and I consider it the most important day of the year. :) My birthstone is emerald and I am on the cusp of Taurus and Gemini.
  7. I didn't start baking until I was 22 years old. I started because I loved watching all of the cake shows on Food Network and decided it might be fun. It's been 4 years and I haven't stopped since!

Now I'd like to award some of my favorite bloggers with the "Tell Me About Yourself Award!" 
Please make sure to check out each of their unique, creative blogs and enjoy! :)
