TGIF - Stylish Blogger Award!!!

Yesterday I recieved my first blog award!!! Not only was I super excited to get the award, but it was from a blog I love, A Sweet Simple Southern Life; check her blog out you'll love it too!

1. Link back and thank the person who gave it to you. 
2. Share 7 things about yourself. 
3. Award 5 stylish blogs you read. 
4. Contact them and tell them about their award! 

1. I am one of three leaders of the prom committee for my school, and it is fast approaching! Our prom is on April, 30th and I'm super excited. Our "theme" is classic and classy if I had to say we have a theme; we don't really have themes at our prom because it is at a Venue that is decorated for us. I STILL DON'T HAVE A DRESS. Help?? I'm thinking a Shoshanna, Milly, or Tibi dress- suggestions?

2.  I started blogging in December because I thought NOBODY would follow me, and I liked that at the time. It was intended to be my journal but has definitely turned into a fun hobby; I love blog reading!!

3. I don't read books nearly as often as I should; (especially the Bible...) and I went to Barnes & Noble yesterday to find a book but I couldn't find anything. I want to read Water for Elephants but that was sold out!

4. Because of camp this summer, and my brother leaving for college I just realized I'll never live with him again! This will probably be his last summer home, and I won't be here! Weird feeling..

5. My cousin got engaged about two weeks ago (same time the Kate Spade wedding collection came out!!!) and she has asked me to help out!!!! I come home from camp the DAY before her wedding; perfect timing! I think I want to get her this necklace; it's super simple but she likes simplicity and it's so cute!
It's called the Say Yes"mrs" Necklace - $78

6. I'm going to get to see my whole family again for Easter! (Dad's side) There are so many of us it's crazy, and I love it! We'll be at the beach where my Grandparents live.

This is not their house, this is the neighbor's but I just think it's so cute!

Down by the water!

7. I want to go to Furman so badly!!!!!! Or Carolina {UNC, the real Carolina ;) } I'm going to start my essays this summer so that applications next fall won't be brutal.

Onto the part you've all been waiting for! I give this award tooooo:
Royar @ My Life as A Southern Prep
Rachel @ Just Peachy
Alex @ 21st Century Girl
Joy @ A Glass Act
