7 things you didn't know about me and my top blogs...

Im lucky enough to have been awarded the stylish blogger award from Decor like butter! and the One Lovely Blog Award by Mix and Chic. 2 Great blogs I love! 

In honor of these awards, (thank you ladies), i'm going to follow tradition and continue the award by sharing my top 15 blogs and share 7 things about myself :-) 

Soooo...where do I start? 

1. I am about to compete in my first ever triathlon this weekend! Okay its just a mini triathlon, but its still very exciting and nerve wrecking! Its only 1 day away and i'm feeling totally unprepared for the swim- especially because its in the ocean! Don't get the wrong impression of me though, i'm no athlete - not by a long shot! I'm just keen to have a go and have some fun with something to work towards. 

2. I've worked in advertising and marketing for the past 8 years, and loved it! But decided its time for a change. While I still love that industry, I feel a bit like i've "been there, done that"

3. When i'm not obsessing over decorating, I love reading about economics and geology. Each totally unrelated, but each equally fascinating to me. 

4. I could eat chocolate anytime, day or night, breakfast lunch or dinner! But which girl doesn't feel the same about chocolate right?

5. I am about to celebrate my 9th, yes 9th wedding anniversary!

6. I arrange and rearrange my house almost daily. Drives my husband insane. Raise your hand if you do the same?

7. Love nothing more than staying up late laughing and chatting in bed with my husband at night. 

My top 15 blogs that I love are: 

1. Decor like butter
2. Mix and chic
3. Party Mouth Foodie
4. Once.Daily.Chic
