Lots of changes, and an award!

First off, if you have read my blog before then you will notice that I changed a ton of stuff today! I decided to get rid of the stock Blogger template and make something that was a little more *me.* In the process, I got really frustrated, but eventually learned a little about HTML coding, and I think I have everything set how I want it. Who knows, you could come back tomorrow and the whole thing might be different.

Next, I would like to thank my friend Elizabeth from Lilly Lu's Collection for giving me this award...

I love blogging, and I am glad that others enjoy reading what I have to say! And I am glad to have been nominated by Elizabeth, she is actually one of my old co-workers from Old Navy and about the sweetest person you will ever meet. She also has a really cute line of hair accessories on Etsy, you should definitely check it out here! There are a few rules that come along with getting this award...once awarded, you must write 7 facts about yourself and then award it to fellow bloggers; make sure to let them know! Also, link back to the one who awarded you!

My 7 Random Facts (trust me, they will be random): 

1. I love anything and everything pink. I would have pink hair right this very minute, but can't because I'm looking for a job :(

2. I am absolutely addicted to Dr. Pepper. I quit once, for about 2 years. When I first tasted a Dr. Pepper after that hiatus, I actually said "OMG this tastes terrible, why would anyone drink this?" Now I'm addicted again, I think it's the bubbles. I'm not affected by the caffeine at all. 

3. When I was little, I wanted to be a hair stylist / marine biologist / architect and I also wanted to be in the Air Force. Those last three things are because of my dad, not really sure where the hair stylist thing came from (probably because I cut my own bangs once the day before picture day, talk about a hack job), and also not sure why I wanted to be all those things at once. 

4. Those previous visions for future careers are actually more thought out than my current plan. Despite changing my major three times in college (that's four majors total), I still am not sure what I want to do with my life. 

5. Pink wasn't always my favorite color. In elementary/middle school, it was green. Why? Because it was the color of trees and grass, and I thought it would make me seem cool and eco-friendly or something. This was before Al Gore "invented" global warming and you saw "go green" everywhere. That's me, always a step ahead. 

6. I used to consider myself the queen of random facts (about other things, not myself) but now I have forgotten most of them. My favorite from those glory days: The average raindrop falls at a speed of 9 MPH. 

7. I am the proud owner of a 2004 Satellite Edition New Beetle (one of only 1200 made). I drove it proudly for 4 years without so much as a scratch, and then got two dents in the same week, in my own driveway. I have now had it for nearly 6 years. I wish I had a nickel for every time someone told me they liked my *stock* wheels, I would be a very rich lady by now. 

There are my facts, I warned you they would be super random! Now, I would like to pass along this award to one of my best friends / sorority sisters, Julie Ann! We had a good 4.5 year run together in college, and decided that starting blogs would be a great way to keep in touch. Check hers out here:
