One Lovely Blog Award

The groovy Gwen from A Geek and Her Oven nominated me for

Here are the rules:
  1. Thank the person nominating you and link back to them in your post
  2. Share seven things about yourself
  3. Nominate a few bloggers you admire
  4. Contact your chosen bloggers to let them know
So, here are seven facts about me:

1). I'm kind of a shut in. I like going out with people, but that first step outside the door is really hard. I'm bad at making the plans. And often have a little anxiety about going out.

2). I wish my hair and eyes were naturally purple! Like, vibrant purple, not a color "close to it". It's my favorite color...I just want purple...purple!!! Is that so bad?

3). At one point I wanted to have one the following "odd" occupations when I "grew-up": rodeo bronco rider (cause: horses! Duh!); semi-truck driver (seemed like freedom); and voice actor (still want to do this actually).

4). I read A Little Princess by Frances Hodgeson Burnett 3 times in a row. When I was in the 4th grade, my teacher played the BEST version of this story at the end of the year (Miriam Margoyles is in it too). And as a girl who was insanely obsessed with Victorian era clothes (thanks Samantha) I was probably one of the only kids enraptured by the video, and the one who was extremely sad there wasn't enough time to watch it. Luckily, the teacher lent it to me! So I got to finish it and returned it to her the following week! Over the summer, we found the book at PriceClub and it came with The Secret Garden (which I read once...but do not remember a thing). I read that book so fast, and then, read it again, and again. I seriously toted that book EVERYWHERE! I still have that worn-out, tried and true copy! I've read it a couple times since. It's my go to comfort book! Its so bad that I actually get VERY mad, whenever the dad lives in movie/stage renditions (in the book, he doesn't...sorry) because it REALLY takes away from Sara Crewe's character.

5). I will always play Rock Band if you ask me! And if you let me pick the songs, I will perform like we're in a real band. Like power-slides, duck walk, mic twirling a la Davey Havok...the whole nine yards.

6). I still love Tamagotchi toys! I don't know why. But I do know that every time a new one comes out, I fight the urge to buy one. I often lose this battle.

7). I love to name people's cars. And if you haven't named yours: I will. (And what I name it, is what I will forever call it).

  1. Congrats on the award! And I'm right there with you, I've always wanted purple eyes. It seems so cool, doesn't it?!

    1. I want to get contacts, but I have sensitivity issues, so I fell like I would waste my money. But I have had purple hair...I just want it to be that way naturally!

  2. Same with #1!!! I like to go out so it's weird. I don't really plan ahead anymore due to flakes. The process of planning can get annoying with multiple people. I prefer making plans a day before/ but then there's also a chance of it not happening either.. seems like sabotage haha

    1. It's such an odd thing I feel. But I just get wrapped up in something else (see: internet, & Netflix).

  3. Semi Truck Driver actually sounds pretty awesome...driving around the country and camping out in those sleepers they have? Yes!

    1. Right?! I always wanted to travel, and liked the idea of being my own boss. Truck driver seemed like a good combo.

  4. Joie, I love your uniqueness! You're so smart. Really enjoyed reading this. I mailed your Rocky Horror lipstick the end of last week. Look for it soon :)

  5. Thanks for the nomination! I would love to see you with purple hair. How about partials? A purple underside would be cool. I know you said "natural," but I guess life doesn't work that way...

    1. I think when I had purple hair it was before I owned a Camera Phone...I wish I had pics! I like the underside idea. I might go with that!

  6. Congratulations on the award! I've always wished my hair was naturally a wild color too, I really want to have mint green hair! I'm bad at making plans too, I like to go out and do things, but me be the one to come up with the planning? No way!!

    1. I feel you!
      I always feel like my ideas are things people won't want to do/won't enjoy.

  7. I love A little princess and the secret garden. I had the most beautiful book that had both stories in with amazing photos when I was younger. I loved it!

    I'm also a shut in *waves*

  8. Congrats on the award, Joie!
    I totally relate with #1. I am afraid that I come off as completely flaky to my friends, but I am usually upfront about my reasons. It's better to be honest about the fact that I am a shut-in, haha.
    Also... bright purple hair and eyes! Who wouldn't love that?! I miss having purple hair, but it was so hard to keep up with.
    I also really love A Little Princess & The Secret Garden, too. There is just this warmth that I feel when I read them. I also really like the movie versions of both that came out in the 90s.

  9. Congrats on the award doll, so cool. And thank you for passing it on to me too :) xo I enjoyed your answers, purple eyes and stuff would be soooo awesome :)) I'd love really vibrant green ones or Blue ones. I know people can have blue eyes already, but mine would be like electric blue and have glitter like specks in them, hahaha!! But, pruple eyes would rule!! I hope you have a sweet day doll xx

  10. Thanks for the nomination! I'll be sure to post about it soon. ^^
    Ah yes, about the hair, I've always wanted it to be knee length. At the moment it's on my shoulders... So still a way to go huh.... >_<
