Happy Monday!!

 How delicious does this blackberry jam cake look? yum.

Hey friends! I hope you all had a nice relaxing weekend. I spent all of Saturday with an off-and-on migraine, which was so bad at one point that I nearly passed out while getting my nails done. So my weekend was pretty low-key since I didn't feel like doing much either day.

However, I'm feeling great today and ready to take on the week!

A happy little surprise waiting for me this morning was that sweet Amanda at Happy Asia Girl nominated me for a blog award! Isn't that just the sweetest thing?? I'm not quite sure how these work, so I think I just have to answer her questions, give you five facts about myself, and then nominate some other people. Well, I'm not going to nominate anyone, because I think everyone's already been nominated or doesn't have a blog (and because I can't pick favorites ever haha), but here's my 5 facts and responses!

5 facts about me:
1. I can bend my thumbs backwards.
2. I'm a middle child.
3. I read really fast.
4. I'm a total computer geek.
5. I've broken my nose twice.

Amanda's Questions:
1.) If you were a food what food would you be? 
 Something full of sugar and chocolate since those are essentially my two major food groups.  
2.) What is a secret goal that you have?
Hmm...I don't really think this is "secret", but I don't think a lot of people know that I want to eventually open my own boutique!  
3.) Tell us about your car (or public transit of choice)
I drive a green Saturn SUV and I love it. I love it even more now that it has two shiny new Auburn stickers on it. 
4.) All time favorite vacation?
My family took a cruise to the Caribbean and Mexico for Christmas one was amazing.  
5.) Describe your perfect Saturday
Super lazy morning spent all snuggled up in bed and probably watching Food Network, followed by lunch and a day at the spa.
6.) 3 words to sum you up
food, silence, sleep.
 7.) Favorite member of your family (answer at your own risk)
Dad. I am a total, unashamed Daddy's girl.
8.) Favorite quote?
"The most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you find someone to love the you you love, well, that's just fabulous."-Carrie Bradshaw
9.) what would your friends say your catch phrase is?
Hmm...probably 'bless' or something equally weird.
10.) speaking of catch phrase, which category do you rock at?
All of them. I am an intense Catch Phrase player. If you're friends with me, it's probably because we haven't ever played Catch Phrase together.
11.) Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Welllll....hopefully married, or at least dating some cute guy, with a job that I love and I'm successful with and I'm happy!
