Stylish Blogger 3

I have received my third & fourth Stylish Blogger award.  I feel so loved!  Special thanks to ABE @ Sundresses and Smiles & Jenna @ Home Away from Home.  I enjoy reading these ladies' blogs everyday. Jenna and I commiserate over our grad school lives.  ABE is new to blogging but I love her blog already.  She shares wonderful stories about her life.

Rules of Stylish Blogger:
Share 7 Fun Facts about yourself
Then pass along the award.

Pimento cheese and crackers is one of my favorite snacks.  Every put pimento cheese on your burger? You should!  Who has the best pimento cheese burger?...Rockaway's in Columbia, SC.  This little dive of a place is located in a non-descript brick building with no sign outside.  You have to know it is there to even know it was a restaurant.  My family and I went there after my graduation from Carolina, and I have not been back since.  I would kill for a Rockaway's pimento cheese burger and pimento cheese fries.  I am particular about my pimento cheese.  The only kind I purchase is Palmetto Cheese.

Nerd Alert! If it wasn't already obvious that I am a nerd, this will confirm it.  I love the History Channel. Last summer when Comcast no longer provided the it in their regular cable package, I drop them like a hot potato and switched to DirecTv.  This is no joke.  Another reason was that DirecTv had a better deal, but the fact that they dropped the History Channel solidified my decision.

I own an absurd amount of t-shirts!  They just cumulate and I never get rid of them.  Between sorority shirts, Carolina shirts, law school shirts, and random event/location shirts, I own upward of 100.

Not my shirts...but mine would look something like this.
I am a Leo.

You are a born leader, and you know it. You are blessed with many talents, and a destiny for greatness. The sun is a star; you, then, are the star of the zodiac. Because of this, you are eternally optimistic and cheerful. If something gets in your way, you conquer it, the way a lion will defeat virtually any foe in the jungle. And like a lion, you do so with dignity.

Your charm and generosity are unending, and people love you for it. You have a big heart—in fact, Leo rules the heart in the zodiacal body— and for this reason, you love buying a round of drinks, sharing colorful stories over a meal, and generally being the life of the party. Your many friends can always count on you for livening up their day. And best of all, they love you even more because you never ask for anything in return— you were born with gifts, so there's no need. You just love sharing them.

Like a cat, you are a hunter. You spot your prey, take aim, and pounce on your target. In human terms, this means your ambition is highly focused.

You know you will reach the top; it's just a question of when. Along the way, you are highly organized, frank, and outspoken—all qualities which focus on your target of being the leader. 

For those of you that actually read that, it describes me to a "T."  Under the "new" system, I am suppose to be a Cancer.  Sorry, I am not a crab, I am a lion.

I am absolutely terrified of shots.  Like my skin crawls when I have to get one.  To this day I can't even look at needles.  You would like this is no big deal, because how often does a twenty-something need to get a shot.  Well, I get one every month.  I am B-12 deficient which is extremely rare for anyone under the age of 60.  Basically, my body does not process B-12 from the food I eat, therefore taking a pill supplement would be just like me eating.

One of my life goals is to visit every state in the U.S. I am no where close to accomplishing this goal.  But, here are the states I have been to and the one Canadian province...

My most recent breakfast obsession is vanilla greek yogurt and blueberries.

I would like to tag...

Hope everyone had a great weekend!!

  1. Jus tried the Dannon blueberry Greek yogurt last week- loooove it!

  2. awesome post! i'm a big fan of pimento cheese too! hope you got everything accomplished this weekend you needed to in the lawbrary :)

  3. we are so similar. I LOVE pimento cheese and just discovered the deliciousness of the pimento cheese BURGER. YUM! I also own a ton of t-shirts I just can't part with from college days (now 10 year old!) and new ones from work and church. But really can you have too many t-shirts? Also I'm a leo too through and through and want to visit all 50 states before I am 50. Most of my map looks almost identical to yours on the right hand side. I did manage to get TX, NV, and AZ. But definitely not Alaska! I'd love to hear about that trip!
    And I guess I'm going to have to try some Greek yogurt this week. Everyone has been telling me how yummy it is!

  4. Congratulations on your awards! I love pimiento cheese too - my mom used to make it herself out of the sausage grinder - which was really gross but kinda cool as it looked like playdoh hair :) TMI? Have a great week!

  5. I absolutely hate needles, too! I am the biggest baby when it comes to getting shots! Palmetto Cheese IS the best pimento cheese out there, hands down!

  6. Score - my first tag! Haha. I love this, because it gives me an excuse not to have to be creative for a few days. Also - your Mark Twain quote just made the side of my blog - just thought I'd let you know I completely stole it (although it links back to you & I admitted I stole it haha) - hope that's okay! :)

  7. The History and Discovery channels are my absolute favorites - definitely a deal breaker for me as well!

    And it's so funny that you also hate needles - I really, truly dispise them and cover my eyes like a baby whenever I have to get one.



Thanks for stopping by! I love all your comments, they honestly make my day.
