First, I would like to thank....

Why do all award acceptance speeches sounds the same?!
Kimbo West, who writes the blog A Girl and a Glue Gun {such a fun title!}, passed on the sugar doll blogger award to me. Anyone out there in blogland know where this award originated at?

To accept this award I had to: thank the sender {thanks, Kimbo}, pass it on to another blogger and write 10 things about myself. So, here we go

1. I just bought my sewing machine last October.
2. I'm probably the cheapest person you know.
3. Today, I took my last college final ever and will graduate with my masters on Friday.
4. I'm married to the most amazing man I know, Sean.
5. My favorite time of day is when I crawl into bed.
6. I'm not sure what I would do without my iPhone...or CHI.
7. I still have to wear my retainers at night.
8. I have to pop my neck at least 5 times/day to avoid headaches.
9. I've just discovered Honey Bunches of Oats and am in love.
10. I'm an imperfect sinner saved by grace.

How's that for a healthy dose of narcissism?

I'm passing this award on to Suzannah at Adventures in Dressmaking.
