2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Award 15 recently discovered great bloggers.

So I am awarding this Stylish Blogger Award to these 15 totally amazing and lovely blogs.  I truly have had so much fun and learned so much from visiting these blogs. I recommend you check them out, you will not be disappointed! You might even make a new friend or two so check out these winners today.

7 things you probably didn't know about me...

1. My Kitchen aid Stand Mixer is Pink! It was a birthday present from my family.

2.  I am a crazy rotten insomniac and there is only 1 thing that helps me sleep (sometimes). I invented this "cozy" drink and sometimes by the last sip I can't keep my eyes open. 

3.  As a child, I collected tea pots. I had over 100 teapots when I quit collecting. My first teapot was a gift from my mom and dad's trip to England. I am also obsessed with drinking tea. 

4.I have had a number of reoccurring dreams for as long as I can remember. One is about red jello!

5.  I have a degree in Esthetics.

6. I had brain surgery when I was 15! 7.  They took out my pituitary gland during the surgery. I thought when I woke up from surgery that my head would feel lighter due to the missing pituitary. (I was wrong)

7.  I have always wanted to own a spice/tea/bakery shop.
