Over the Top

I received this lovely little award from Becky at Love Everyday Life and I think one other person might have also awarded it to me, but I can't seem to remember who... sorry... my brain is fried these days!

In order to accept this award I have to answer the following questions and then pass the love onto six other bloggers, so here goes.

By the way, I've answered these before but was restricted to answering w/ one word, so I am re-answering them since I can now expound on answers if need be!

Lisa, I am so pleased! Thank you so much! I just did an excited hand clap!

Thanks for the blog love! I think if we ever get together we have to promise NOT to go to Banana Republic + Target because it could be dangerous =)

I'maNolaGirl said...

Yay Lisa! Your blog is definitely award worthy!!!

Anais said...

That's a hilarious dream :P Going to grad school in Cuba wouldn't be so bad but I'm not sure how much work would get done with the nice weather!

Cherry Blossoms said...

I agree with #22!

Nicole said...

Aw, thanks! I loved reading your answers to this! I feel like I've just done one of these... maybe I should try it again with the one word answers.

Amber said...

You will totally meet all expectations at work, silly girl, but I can totally understand why you would fear that!

Anyways, fun post, my favourite place to eat is definitely my grandma's, she makes the BEST food. No restaurant meal compares to a homecooked meal!

I definitely agree with you on "mom's cooked food" being amazing. Ryan and I are making a bold and scary attempt to do Thanksgiving this year. I really wish I could just hire mom to come and do the big cooking for me--because I fear disaster. And we all know--she is the "Thanksgiving Cooking Master"

And your fear of not meeting expectations at work?--That will go away with time. It's just a huge move/change/opportunity all at once. But they wouldn't have hired you if they didn't think you were worth this position. You're going to find your "place" soon. Hang in there!

My hair needs dyed as well. I'm just too lazy lately to do it. And Target has so many fun things, it always gets me in trouble.
