Project Life 25 {Week 9 and a Blog Award}

Hi everyone! So, before I share my project life layout for today, I have some fun news! Jules at A Beautiful Day nominated me for a blog award! I thought that was so sweet of her to nominate me, thank you Jules!

So, as we all know, bloggy awards have rules! Here are the rules for this award:

Thank the blogger who nominated me for the award. (Thank you again Jules!)
Include a link to their blog in your post, as well as the award image (here's another link to A Beautiful Day)
Give 7 random facts about yourself
Nominate 15 other deserving bloggers for the award
Include links to the nominate bloggers' sites
Let the other bloggers know that they have been nominated for the award

So, for my 7 random facts:

1. I own a pair of blue and orange Converse high tops for Mets games.

2. I prefer salty to sweet. I will always choose a kettle cooked potato chip over chocolate! And now I'm craving kettle cooked chips!

3. We are moving for AJ's job in January, but we don't know where we are going yet.

4. I wish I had a Magic School Bus just like Ms. Frizzle.

5. I don't eat any ground meat, I just don't like the texture.

6. There are currently almost three dozen pictures of AJ and I displayed in our apartment. He feels that this is too many. I disagree.

7. I have a really hard time thinking of random facts about myself. Writing this list took took almost 45 minutes!

And here are my 15 bloggers:

Heather Our Life in a Click
Becky Fourth House on the Right
Tracy Tracy's Treasures
Mary Pat Siehled with a Kiss
Mary Jo Scrapbook Treehouse
Mary Gene I Wanna Be in Pictures
Barbara World of Whimcees
Sandee In the Hills of North Carolina
Schell Schell's Craft Corner
Linda My Happy Place
Brooke My Boysterous Life
Christina See Christina Scrapbook
Tamar Random-osity
Jillee One Good Thing
Kristina Ladybug Storytime

Wow! That is a lot of fabulous ladies!

It is also a Friday today, which means its Project Life day!

Top row: My mom and dad outside the Art Institute, my dad and I swimming in the lake
Second row: The painting from Ferris Bueller's Day Off (and I totally took a set of pictures slowly zooming in, just like in the movie!), a picture of the menu from Morton's, I love the font they use!
Third row: My mom and I at Macy's Bridal Salon, putting on my special "I'm the bride!" pin

Top Row: the bike stamp is from Lawn Fawn, I just love that stamp!
Middle Row: a view from the Lake Front Trail
Bottom Row: reading by the lake (and getting a tan!), our bikes (taking up the whole apartment!)

While this is posting, I'll be on my way to the airport to fly home for the week! I can't wait to see my family, although I always feel a little sad when I have to leave AJ for so long. I'll be in New York for 9 days! Fortunately, two of his good friends will be here to keep him company this weekend.

Do you have any fun plans for this weekend? I'm really looking forward to lying by the pool and maybe drinking some wine from one of the local vineyards!

Christina said...

Thanks for the award!!
So, I like salty better than sweet too. And 3 dozen pictures is nothing-just wait until you have kids-my DH complains all the time about the number of photos I have hanging of them. I like being surrounded by photos of the people I love most. :)
And...I am seriously in love with that bicycle stamp. Have fun in NY!

Becky said...

Thanks for the award!! I have the hardest time with those lists too :)

Your Project Life this week is so fun! I love your bike stamp too.

Have a safe trip back home and enjoy yourself!

Jules said...

You are very welcome for the award....much deserved!!! I believe you can NEVER have too many pictures on display....they all bring back a memory or tell a can you beat that? i am now officially craving kettle chips. I can't wait to check out the bloggers that you looks like there are some scrappers in there! Enjoy your time with your family!
