Snatched Awards

So a couple of fantastic ladies whose blogs I read on a regular basis were sharing their awards in a free-for-all fashion so I decided to snatch them up for myself and invite you all to snatch them from me!

I snagged this first award from Aishlea over at Excursions of the Spurgins. Aishlea has a very cute blog where she shares life as a (relatively) newly wed lady. If you haven't yet - hop over and check her out!

When she accepted her award; Aishlea answered these questions so I thought I would too:

1. What one thing wouldn't you want to live without?

Other than friends and family I would definitely have to say face and body moisturizer. I can't stand to have dry skin. I always carry lotion with me - that's just how I roll.

2. Beach, Mountains, or Farm? If you had a choice, where would you live?

Beach. Farms smell - Mountain air gives me allergies. I want the sand between my toes and the sun bronzing my skin!

3. What is your least favorite household chore?

Yard work and dishes. I miss having a dishwasher!

4. Who do people say you remind them of?

Brooke Hogan and Bridget Marquardt

5. What is your all-time favorite movie?

Tough. I have a major tie between tons of movies: Dirty Dancing, Fried Green Tomatoes, Grease, Clueless, Legally Blonde, The Wedding Planner, Dazed and Confused...are right on top!

6. Do you have a hidden talent or a deep desire to learn how to do something?

I can put mascara on with no mirror and crack an egg with one hand. I also print ridiculously neat.

7. What first attracted you to your spouse?

Well Ben and I first met in middle school. When I had a crush on him in 8th grade (for like a month) it was his hair and pretty eyes. When we actually started dating 6 years later it was his sense of humor and how I could just talk to him intelligently about anything and everything!

8. What is something about you that you know irritates others?

Set ridiculously high expectations that can't be met and end up projecting my dissapointments on others/anal retentiveness and a desire to always present myself and my work flawlessly- whether I am/it is or not.

9. Are you a silent laugher or a loud laugher? What makes you laugh the hardest?

I am both. Sometimes silent and sometimes loud. I laugh really hard at cats doing funny things (judge me if you want). I laughed the hardest recently when Meg, her sister, niece, and I were entering her venue for the wedding. We were standing in the lobby at the elevator and another wedding was taking place on the main floor. One handsome man from the other wedding was standing at their guest book in a military dress blues. As we waited for the elevator with arms loaded full of stuff - I felt my pants start to slide down my butt. I told the girls I was losing my pants but with all our arms full there was nothing anyone could do. So my pants just hit the ground. Luckily I was wearing a thigh lenght trench that was buttoned up so no one saw anything. The man was so polite though and never looked as we laughed but he did say: "Best wedding ever" as he signed the guest book and rejoined his wedding!

10. What is your favorite place to shop?

Macys, Sephora, Vicky C's, New York and Co. Target, TJ Maxx

My second snagged award comes from Leslie over at A Blonde Ambition.

Leslie's blog is one of my newest favorites- so definitely stop over there to check her out!

For this award I am to share 5 of my current obsessions:

Dark Nails: Planning to have my nails filled in the next couple of days and instead of the usual french mani am planning to do a deep burgundy or purple - bordering on black. I used to have Lincoln Park After Dark by OPI a few years ago and am thinking of going that route again.

Deep, dramatic lips. Nuff said.

Iced Tea. Summer, Fall, Winter, Spring. I don't really like hot beverages so iced tea is an all the time kind of drink for moi. I sweeten mine with Splenda!

Toothbrushes on the go - get rid of garlic breath in a snap!

ABC Fall Line Up. Its ruining/improving my life simultaneously. DWTS, The Middle, Modern Family, Cougar Town, Eastwick, Flashfoward, Greys Anatomy, Desperate. My DVR is in overload!

Well, that's it for me for tonight. I'm pooped! Thanks for the free-for-all ladies! I plan to give you shout outs in my side bar as well. As for the rest of yas- snag em if you want em!

Much Love!

Miss Amber Lane
