You shouldn't have! But, thanks!

So, one of my favorite bloggers nominated me for my first award!

I am so stoked! I always see these fun little guys and get so jealous! So, as a special shout out, you should totally check out K's blog at Another K and J!

So, as per the rules, I'm supposed to share 7 things about myself and then nominate other bloggers for the award.

Seven Things About Myself:

1. I am a tad bit of a control freak. Ok, so a lot. I literally feel shaky when a situation is happening and I have no control over it. And I hate surprises, in case that wasn't too obvious! It freaks me out when people say things like " I bought you something" but then I can't know anything about it or have it. Drives. Me. Bonkers! But, Joel deals with it nicely.
2. Matching in K's number two, I have also loved the color pink for years now, but hated it growing up. The first time I got something pink and liked it was in 2002 when I graduated high school. I have loved the color ever since.
3. I am deathly afraid of clowns. Ok, I will wait for the laughter to stop. But, seriously! Joel's fantastic proposal was almost ruined by the scary clown that stalked me in Rome. I totally had nightmares!
4. I love to read, but I don't read very much non-fiction, so I feel really dumb about joining book clubs. I would (MOST of the time) rather read about stuff that has actually happened. I think actual life is fascinating!
5. I am one of those crazy reality tv show watchers. Yes, I know how ridiculous the real housewives are. But I can't stop watching their living train wreck!
6. I have a crazy love/hate thing with my body and food. I want to lose weight and I know I could do it if I just put some more effort into it. But, I love eating and living in Europe affords me some great eating opportunities. So every time I lose that dreaded five pounds, I travel somewhere and more than sample the bad cuisine and wine. Bad Kristen!
7. I wish that I had more girlfriends around here. I always seem to make great friends right before they are moving. I love my husband, and as cliche as it sounds, he is my best friend. But I know his idea of a fun Friday night does not include pedicures, martinis, and Twilight. Know what I am saying?

As far as the nomination process goes, even though her blog is way cooler than mine, I would like to nominate Lauren from for this prestigious awards! Seriously, she is so funny. Go read her blog!

Thanks for the shout out! And you totally deserve this award! Im a bit of a control freak as well, and I hate clowns! Since watching IT as a child, I've hated them. So creepy!

I completely understand the wishing for more girlfriends! J is my best friend, but sometimes, a little girl time is much needed. Since we are in the same area, it shouldnt be too difficult to get together!
