Happy 2011

2011 Calendar Year of the Rabbit by brookewoolley

Let's start off 2011 with a giant leap! (to prevent confusion: it's not leap year, but it is the year of the rabbit)

This new year's eve, I spent the night partying, snacking, drinking, and playing games with all of my friends in my little studio! I can't imagine a better way of spending the last night of the year besides being warm and cozy with good the best company ever! :)

On another note, I have been given the Stylish Blogger Award by two equally stylish bloggers: Meri from Meri-Goes-Round and Bon and Chi from Bon&Chi!

Thank you so much!!!!! This is the best new year's present ever! :D

,.-~*´¨¯¨`*·~-.¸-( ✴ yay! ✴ )-,.-~*´¨¯¨`*·~-.¸

So this is how this award works. I will:

  • Thank and link back to the person that awarded me.
  • Share 7 things about myself.
  • Pay it forward to 15 recently discovered bloggers.
  • Contact those bloggers about the award!

Here are a few things about myself:

  • I'm happily married to my husband (who I sometimes refer to as Hubby on this blog) and I'm very happy that he voluntarily does the dishes.
  • I love dogs. They are my favorite animals in the world!
  • I have a hamster named Hamlette. She's my current dog substitute. Don't feel sorry for her because she's really adorable.
  • I would like a big backyard someday so I can do some organic gardening with the companionship of a few chickens.
  • I can eat seafood all day.
  • I'm surprisingly domestic, despite telling my mom (many years ago as a teenager) that I'll never learn to cook because in the 21st century, women do not have to cook!
  • I love cooking. It's one of my favorite hobbies. My husband appreciates it because his cooking is inedible.
