Beautiful Blogger Award :)

The artistic Melinda at Konad & Me has tagged me for the Beautiful Blogger award - thank you Melinda!  Melinda and I are friends through the Purse Forum and she was one of my greatest inspirations to finally try Konad, so I owe my Konad addiction to her :)

The lovely KelseaLaurel at KelseaLaurel also tagged me - thank you Kelsea!!  Kelsea just reached 30 followers and I know she'll be in the hundreds soon because she has great swatches but also because she is a really nice person.



In honor of receiving this award, I'm supposed to list seven things about myself.  Lets see...

1.  I'm a four leaf clover magnet - I've found thousands in my life.

2.  When I was growing up, I collected thimbles from all the places I visited.  It's really nice looking back through the collection, because each one carries some really special memories.

3.  I've been engaged to J for five years this January 31.  By the time we get married in May 2011, we just may have the longest engagement ever.

4.  I've been a vegetarian for the past 6 1/2 years.  I eat Quorn a lot!

5.  I have gone to three universities for three degrees and I chose all the schools based solely on location.  I don't like moving to new places much.

6.  I've been riding horses since I was eight.  I've owned my horse, Breeze, since I was thirteen.  She's going on seventeen years :)



7.  I've worked with a local animal rescue since I was in eighth grade to rescue and rehome cats and dogs in our area.  We often use www.PetFinder.com to help them find new homes.  I'm currently fostering a cat named Grace who is up for adoption!

There are a few blogs I'd like to tag for the beautiful blogger award:

Two of the most beautiful bloggers, inside and out, that I know are:

I'd also like to tag:
Brooke at Getcha Nails Did, not simply because we share the same awesome name, but because she is always such a nice person
Tuli at Tuli's Nails because she is a genuinely kind person who really cares about others.
Niki at Ink on Digital Paper because she has some great nail designs (and such a creative blog name!)
Trincess at Emerald Sparkled because she's a really nice blogger
Patty at Miss Vintage Vogue for her great Konad designs, &
Pink Cat at Pink Cat's Polish because the name of her blog rocks!

Aww Brooke, congratulations!! You have such beautiful designs and you seem like a really sweet girl! Loved your seven facts - I love animals, too! :) You should post some more pics of your Breeze!

And, thanks for the Tag!!! YAY! :) I'm so new to all of this, that's so sweet of you! Do all of your "tagees" do the 7 things, too?

Congrats again!!

How funny! Matt and I were engaged for seven years before we finally got married. It was worth the wait!

bowsnhearts said...

Wow! I have never seen a 4 leaf clover before!

I have only been to one university for all my 3 degrees!

You have led an amazing life!

Melinda said...

Thanks for the compliments! :)

Brooke said...

Mighty Lambchop - I'm glad I'm not the only one with a record-breaking engagement! I think it's a good idea too :)

bowsnhearts - maybe it's the area I live in or something - I find them all the time! I would have gone to the same university for all 3 degrees but they didn't offer what I wanted, lol.

You're welcome Melinda!

My boyfriend/husband and I were engaged for 3 and 1/2 years but only because we were so young. I was 14 and him 15 when we met. Got married one week over 18 and still married 36 years later. :)
Hey did you know their was a 4 leaf clover Konad?

Love this, getting to know you better and better! I tagged you for a photo tag! Kisses, J

Brooke said...

Wow, that is a great story Susie!! I'm so glad everything worked out so well for you and your husband :)
I didn't know there was a 4 leaf clover Konad! I actually bought a set of fauxnad plates just to get a clover stamp, lol.

You're welcome Pink Cat!

Swtest2Lips - ahh, I wish I had tagged you for this!!! Glad you enjoyed my seven (silly) random facts :)

Liz said...
