more blog love

just when i thought awards season was over, it seems in the blogworld it's still going strong. big hugs to amy of tastes like red, who gave me the beautiful blogger award a little while back! i am to rattle off seven (hopefully) unknown facts about myself and pass along the title to seven other lovely bloggers. after tuesday's post, you might know everything about me by week's end!

1. i go to bucknell university in lewisburg, pennsylvania. i am majoring in french language & literature and minoring in art history. i have loved studying abroad in france and admire many things about the french way of life... from the beautiful language to the famed fashion (not to mention a national obsession with bread and cheese), i'm hooked.

2. for my senior year at bucknell, i will be moving into an off-campus house with my seven best friends. decorating my bedroom will be my first design project since choosing paint colors and bed linens for my bedroom at home circa age twelve and i couldn't be more excited. while i have loved most everything about my semester abroad, i can't wait to get home and get decorating! the room is currently big and boring... but i prefer the term "blank canvas."

3. my family and i are obsessed with the office. i also watch grey's anatomy, gossip girl, and anything on bravo (flipping out and the rachel zoe project are particular favorites) but the office is my all-time favorite.

4. i am a boston red sox fan. i remember staying up with my dad to watch the american league championship series against the yankees in 2004 like it was yesterday. after the red sox went on to beat the cardinals in four games, he was quick to remind me how lucky i was to only have had to wait fifteen years before seeing them win the world series, as that year marked the end of their 86 year curse. my grandfather, an equally diehard fan, exclaimed that he now could die happy having seen them won.

5. i was a competitive gymnast for most of my childhood. this was not a hobby or a pastime but a way of life — and i have the leotards, trophies, and video footage to prove it. after a collegiate stint with cheerleading ended following my freshman year, i really need to find an exercise regime that i can stick to!

6. i love elephants. my sister painted me an elephant that hangs above my dresser in my bedroom at home and it rocks. i wish i had a picture to share!

7. i desperately wish i were artistic. my dad can draw and my sister can paint and i would love to be able to do either one.

as for the seven bloggers to whom i'd like to pass on this award, i'd like to focus on fellow fledgeling bloggers — ladies like myself who are newish to the blogworld (within the past year or so) and already making their voices heard!

another thank you goes out to the adorable ashley at sweet southern prep for giving me the honest scrap award. go check out her blog if you haven't already! she is the sweetest. for fear of boring you all, i'll simply redirect you to my previous post of ten things i love rather than delving into ten new facts about myself. thank you all for thinking of me and for stopping by each day — you all are the best!

Congratulations Love!! I didn't realize you were studying French... you know, just THE most gorgeous language on this planet not to mention THE most beautiful culture. Some of my favorite memories are in Paris and the French countryside. Keep it up! I studied it for 4 years and am slowly losing it seeing as NO ONE speaks French in Texas. Who knew! haha!
