One Lovely Blog Award!

Hey everyone! This is super exciting! I’ve been nominated for the One Lovely Blog Award! This is special for me because not only is this my first nomination for a blog award, but also because I was nominated by the amazing Cheila from Pink For Days! Cheila has an awesome blog and I highly recommend you check her out. Thank you very much Cheila!


The rules!

  • Each nominee must thank the person who nominated them and link their blog in the post;
  • They must include the rules and add the blog award badge as an image;
  • Must add 7 facts about them;
  • Then nominate 15 people;

The facts!

  1. At the time of writing this I just came back from watching Logan at the movie theater. Wolverine was my favorite of the X-Men from the animated series that I would watch as a child and this movie was absolutely amazing! (I’m going to write a review of the movie next!) It has literally made me so happy that they finally got a Wolverine movie right. πŸ™‚
  2. My family was invited to my cousin’s 15th birthday party next month. She and her family live in Georgia, so that would have been an awesome adventure but I already have tickets to see a musical that weekend and paid the entry fee for a fun run. Whoops!!! I’m hoping my parents can go though. In which case I would have an extra ticket to a musical that weekend since my mom wouldn’t be able to attend!
  3. Next weekend the family movie trip will be Beauty and the Beast (I hope). Belle is my favorite Disney princess and her library has always made me insanely jealous. I also really love Hermione Granger and Emma Watson so it’s like three of my favorite women all mushed into one. That actually doesn’t sound very nice when I add in “mushed” does it? But I’m really excited!
  4. I’m in charge of planning a family vacation! I’m thinking Cancun because we’ve been saying we’re going to go for over a decade. Our schedules are all so different though since my dad works in landscape and can’t go in August when I’m most likely to get a week off, my sister can’t get off January, and while December would be the best time to go, that would also be the most expensive time! Sigh…
  5. About three years ago I went through a time when I was having daily panic attacks. I haven’t had one in over two years but I still constantly worry that something will happen to trigger another panic attack.
  6. If there is one thing my home office is missing it’s a good lamp. I have a very weak lamp in one corner and then a brighter, but still not very good, floor lamp that I move around to try and get good lighting where I need it. Since I need to take lots of photos for my blog I’m thinking of getting a studio light or something like that though.
  7. I drink a lot of water at work. Maybe not enough as I should but a good amount! That’s because we have a nice water filter available so it’s easy to fill up and I never want to get soda or sugary drinks from the vending machine. However when I’m home for the weekend I don’t drink nearly as much and by the time I get to work on Monday I can feel the dehydration. In fact, after I am done writing this post, I’m going to run downstairs for a bottle of water!

The nominees!

Woah, I have to nominate 15 people now! That does seem like a lot, so I think I’m going to stick to 10. Here we go!

Thanks for reading!


  1. Thank you so much for the nomination!! πŸ˜„ I went to see beauty and the beast with my family the other day and all I can say is you will not be disappointed! It was really funny and full of magic! Hope you all have a lovely day when you go and enjoy it! πŸ’—

  2. I have a very similar story with panic attacks and I do sometimes worry that something will trigger them again. :/
    Aww, sorry you won’t get to visit GA! But Cancun sounds amazing!! 😊

    • I’m so glad to know I’m not the only one! I don’t talk about my past with anxiety as often as I probably should because I know that people are out there that are constantly battling it. I’m glad that you’re not having panic attacks and I hope that you never have one again! Hopefully someday I’ll be able to go to GA. I keep joking with my mom that we need to go just to use our Six Flags Season Pass at the park there. πŸ™‚ Cancun should be fun though! Just a matter of trying to fit everyone’s schedules nicely!
