Kreativ Blogger Award!

Thanks to Nail Reflections and Shannara @ Nails N Stuff for the Kreativ Blogger Award!

I guess she thinks I'm Kreativ! At least SOMEONE does... =)

Here are the rules you have to follow when receiving the award:
1. Link back to the person who gave you this award.
2. Complete the form below.
3. Award 10 other blogs and let them know in a comment or email
4. Share 7 random things about yourself.

1. Name your favorite song.
Everything I Do, I Do It For You by Bryan Adams. I first heard this song in the fourth grade and I cried. It was the epitome of love for someone else, and I always thought it was the pure emotion. I can't listen to it now without thinking of Robin Hood (damn Kevin Costner) but when I hear it, I have to stop and close my eyes and just listen.
2. Name your favorite dessert.
Mom's cookies. Warm from the oven. And a glass of cold milk.
3. What ticks me off:
People talking over me or cutting me off. Drives me crazy. Or people being disrespectful to others based on their station in life. Who cares if you're a CEO or a janitor, you're a person and you deserve the respect inherent in that.
4. When I'm upset, I ..
Cry. Mad, angry, frustrated, sad, hurt. Whatever. I can't help it. Intense feelings = waterworks. Not generally in public, but when I get time alone, it needs to be released. 
5. What's your favorite pet.
My doggies! I have three (that live with my parents, but they're MINE no matter what they say!) mutts that are the best dogs EVER.
This is Hunter. He's the middle child. Sweetest dog ever. Loves to be petted, and has to be touching you somehow, sitting on your foot, leaning against you. He's a lover. I found him on the side of the road one day and brought him home, where he's stayed ever since.

This is Molly. She's the youngest. She may look sweet here, but she's rambunctious and she'll annoy you until you scratch her back until she is content. She's a good doggie. I got her while in school at a pound.

And last, but not least, is Scooter, the alpha. She was my first "rescue." I got her while working at a vet's office in college. She was found abandoned a school park. She's a nervous little doggie, but a sweetheart. Smart like crazy! She knows lots of weird commands, like "go under cover" where she army crawls on her belly. She's a nut.

6. Black or White?
7. Biggest Fear.
Not making a difference in the world.
8. Every day attitude.
Silly. I like to make people laugh and smile. I'm pretty upbeat and funny for the most part.
9. What is perfection?
Snuggling with my hubby. I know. Gag me. It's so cute it makes me want to puke.
10. Guilty pleasure?
Massages from my husband. He has magic hands. I tease him that I'm going to rent him out so I can have more money for makeup.

7 random facts about me:
1. My favorite TV show of all time is Gilmore Girls. Loved the fast talking and quick wit. Firefly is a close second.
2. I used to hate purple in high school because that was everyone's favorite color. Now, I can't live without a little purple in my day.
3. I can't stand quiet - I always need something in the background playing.
4. My husband proposed to me with a wad of cash. It's actually a funny story.
5. I donate my hair every few years to Locks of Love. Right now if I cut it shoulder length, I can donate FOURTEEN inches. I'm really close to cutting it because it's getting too long and it's obnoxious since I don't fix it. It gets pulled back and just looks unappealing (to me, my hubby loves it. men.) I'm thinking about posting about it when I do it! Some before and after pics!
6. I love the smell of coffee, but I hate the actual taste of it. I have to smother it with creamer or sweetener.
7. I love to read, and do so whenever I can. I LOVE iBooks on the my iphone because I can download free books so I can spend money on my polish!
