Award + Giveaway!


Yay! A big thanks to Preppy Lane for giving me this award :) Visit her adorable blog if you haven't already!
According to the award rules, I shall post 7 things about myself that I haven't already told you, and I'll pass on the award to several other great blogs.

1.) My middle name is Jayne.
 An old English surname on my mother's side that has been passed down the last few generations as a female middle name.

2.) My favorite perfume is Ralph Lauren Romance.

3.) I wear a claddaugh ring that I never take off.

It's a size 3.5...aka toddler size. It's gold with a teeny little diamond chip in the middle.

4.) I'm a Big Sister in the Big Brothers Big Sisters program.
My Little's name is Makayla, and she's a girly girl just like me.

5.) I took piano lessons for 9 years and still teach myself a tune every now and then.
Right now I'm teaching myself  "Traumerei" by Schumann. It's a pretty little piece.

6.) When I was a kid, I wanted to be a horticulturist when I grew up.
I liked flowers, and my Aunt told me that a scientist who works with flowers is called a horticulturist. My mind quickly changed when I took my first biology class.

7.) I followed figure skating religiously when I was little.

Michelle Kwan was my hero. I was upset when I realized ice skating isn't as easy as it looks!

And now for the new recipients:
1.) BKR Fashion
2.) Always Pink and Preppy
3.) spark.
4.) The Petite Fitting Room
5.) i am Khatu
Feel free to participate if you choose, new recipients! :)
