Pour some sugar on me

I was tagged and given the glorious Sugar Doll Award by my lovely blogging friends, BLC @ The Company She Keeps, Emma @ Tales of All American Girl and The Preppy Pink and Green Puppy. BLC is a doll and I've been reading her blog for awhile. She got engaged not too long ago. Head on over and say hello! Emma has a blog that is so fun and I recently found her. She lets her readers know about new musical artists and all sorts of other fun things. The PP&GP is another blog that I recently found. She is so nice and we like to gush about how much we love our Cavalier's!

Thank you ladies for thinking of me and giving me this award! I love all of your blogs and am glad to call you my friends.

Here are the rules:
1. I have to list 10 interesting facts about myself (this list is more random than interesting)
2. Pass it on to 10 more bloggers


1. I’m going to admit something really embarrassing. When Titanic was in the theater, I went to see it a total of 7 times. With a running time of 3 hours and 17 minutes, that means that I spent almost an entire 24 hour day in total watching this movie. What can I say, other than I was a teenager and there wasn’t much else to do.

2. I have an addiction to diet drinks. Diet Pepsi and diet green tea are my faves.

3. I’ve had my car for 10 years as of this past August and I plan on keeping it as long as I can. I’m going for 200,000 miles. I love my Nissan!

4. Geof and I agreed that our recent trip to Hawaii was even better than our honeymoon. Sad, but true!

5. I love making lists for things (anything) and then checking it off. It makes me feel so accomplished.

6. My family has 3 sets of twins and one set of triplets in it. I don’t think I would mind twins, but triplets…wow. They’re all my first and second cousins. It just boggles my mind.

7. I will never and I mean ever get a tattoo. I think they’re fine for other people, but just not my thing.

8. I can’t stand ridiculous FB updates. Some are a novel, tmi or things that most people couldn’t care less about. I have friend named Tim that always leaves the best things on his page. Here is a recent one: Tim “thinks facebook should rename the "people you may know" feature, to "people that you know, but deliberately choose not to be friends with." It's the cyber equivalent of being at a party, and the host awkwardly shoving you in the direction of someone you dislike...trying to force you to be friends. Facebook is quickly turning into a forced Venn diagram of friendships... no good.”.

9. Each Christmas, without fail I watch A Christmas Story and National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. I’ve done this for a long as I can remember and it never gets old.

10. I have an obsession with accessories. Bags, scarves and sunglasses top the list!

I'm cheating a little on this and passing it along to anyone that hasn't done it yet. I thought it was fun to think of some random's. If you do it, let me know so that I can read your list.

I was also given the Friendly Blogger Award from Kathie @ My Net Finds. She has been a bloggy friend of mine for awhile now and is so sweet. I always love checking in on her blog and seeing new internet finds that she has posted, along with yummy recipes. She has something for everyone!

Thank you, Kathie!

Haha. I lost count on how many times I saw Titanic. The worst part is, the more I saw it, the more emotional I got. One time I was next to an old man practically sobbing...he was half asleep and probably thought I was off my rocker!

Katie said...

I will NEVER get a tattoo either, I have a hard enough time deciding what to make for dinner, let alone a permanent tattoo!

So nice to get to know you better!
My first car was a Chevy Nova....remember those? (I'm dating myself here!)I had it forever..almost nine years! And all that hoopla about naming the car "no go" in Spanish! It lasted me just fine! lol!

Kristen said...

I love reading fun stuff like this!

Beth Dunn said...

OMG I love your list! I watch the same movies every Christmas too. See you tonight! xoxo

Congrats on the awards!

I think I saw Titanic 3 times in the theater and I used to own it on VHS, so I definitely spent my fair share of time watching it! I found it on TV a few months ago and I totally watched it again!

I will also never get a tattoo! I don't like the idea of something that permanent being on my body!

Kathie @ my net finds said...

I won't get a tattoo either :-) I only saw Titanic once in the theater, but I probably would have gone more if I could have found someone to drag along with me! hahaha

Blair said...

OMG!!! I saw Titanic 4 times in the theater! I thought I was the only nerd that paid that much to see that movie. But I loved it. I loved L.D and K.W. But I have never watched it since. Girl, I am addicted to diet drinks as well, I am working on getting "off" of them. But it's so hard!
No tattoos? Good girl! I have 2 but you can't see them, gotta keep it classy! HA!
Have a great day!

Lindsey said...

Savvy Gal said...

Naturally Caffeinated Family said...

i love to have lists too! and love accessories! you can change up an outfit in no time=)

d.a.r. said...

I am the same way about diet coke, making lists just to cross stuff off, ridiculous FB status updates, and I will never, ever, ever get a tattoo!

Kari said...

i love that you saw titanic 7 times!! and i am totally a list gal

Gwen said...

Congrats on your awards!!! I know I saw Titanic at least twice but it may have been three times. Brian drives a little red Nissan that we bought used in 1997 (three months after our wedding). I want to get rid of the car so badly but it just won't die!!! 15 years and still kicking. Is it sad that I pray for the thing to disappear? Its so old and fugly now. LOL!!! XOXO

Gwen said...

Oh...and I know what you mean about Facebook status updates. You know what drives me crazy are people that only put quotes on them. If you aren't creative enough to come up with something on your own then don't say anything.

Preppy Coastee said...

I change my mind way to much to ever get a tattoo. I would spend more money on removing them then getting them! lol.

It was sooo nice meeting you! I can't wait to hang out! I had some great laughs with you!!

Kristin said...

Go Nissan! I have a Murano and plan on driving it FOREVER! Good decision with the tattoo. I so regret my teenage mistake. Ah ha

Jill said...

Ha Ha!!! Cute list, I love diet sodas too. My favorite is diet coke. I totally agree about the tatoo thing.

Lis said...

Congrats on your awards! I love reading these!

The Titanic thing is cracking me up! And no tattoos for me either! And I'm so with you on the ridic FB status updates!
