{stylish blogger award}

Wow! I’m stunned! I’ve seen these buttons on a few blogs now and wondered what they were.. And then yesterday I received one myself. :D I was nominated for the Stylish Blogger Award! Yaaay!

By accepting this reward I agreed to the following 4 rules:

1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award. 
I feel so honored to receive a Stylish Blogger Award from my fellow blogger @ Require Life! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
Little Update: I got awarded again after I published this post. Yaaay! Many, many thanks to Rosanna @Bargain Corner Designs and Chris @Poppies & Poetry!

2. Share 7 things about yourself.
This kinda feels like the “truth” part of playing truth or dare as a teenager..

  1. My husband and I moved in with each other only 1 12 weeks into dating. It seems to work. ;)
  2. My native tongue is German.
  3. I’m really a brunette and I’ve had my hair red (really red), black and, for about 10 years now, blonde.
    my brother and I in 1989
  4. I’m considered tall in the US and have average height in Germany — being 174 cm/ 5′7″.
  5. I swear too much.
  6. My wedding dress was off craigslist, because I loved the idea of getting the dress I wanted for 1/4th of the price. Thrifty, eh? ;)
    our elopement
  7. I love Mexican food and I miss it dearly over here in Germany. Nothing compares to Tex-Mex in Houston!
3. Award 15 recently discovered great bloggers.
4. Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award!
Now I’m off to notify these 15 fabulous new(ish) bloggers! :)

    Thanks so much! You definitley deserve it! And — it’s an honour that you included me in your nominations as well! DANKE! :o)

    I love your wedding dress — it’s beautiful! I got mine @ a wedding shop — but it was “last year’s style” so it was also at an EXTREME discount! Dontcha love when that happens?

    I speak German too! Not fluently — but I can understand it better than speak it. All of our dog’s “serious” commands German, as well. It is my dream to visit Germany one day.

    All the Best!

    Congrats! I just adore your blog:)

    Thank you so much for including me in the nominations. I’m so excited and grateful!

    I lived in Germany with my husband in Kaiserslautern from 1998–2001. He was in the Air Force. I couldn’t love that country more! I left a little of my heart there and hope to make it back one day with my boys to show them where my husband and I spent our college/newlywed years.

    Thanks again!

    @…m…: Haha! I love that you speak “serious” German with your dogs! It’s a good idea to teach them words that only you know, so no one else can mess with your dogs. Well, except for me, I guess! Hehe

    @ Poppies and Poetry: Thank you for your compliment! Have you been to Germany after you left in 2001? Did you learn to speak it while you were over here? :)

    Congratulations! It has been fun finding out so much more about you! Beautiful wedding gown. Thanks for including me, it is truly an honor. However, I have received this award a few times and wouldn’t feel right accepting. I would like for everyone to get a chance to be nominated!

    I haven’t been back to Germany since 2001 regretfully. My time there is still so vivid in my memory and I just can’t wait to go back for an extended stay. I would live there, I really would!

    While I lived there I worked for the Dept. of the Air Force in the VAT office and worked directly with the German utility companies and so I did speak some though never fluent. What I still remember I teach my boys.

    Thanks again:)

    Wow, thank you so much!

    By the way, the only language I’m really interested in learning is German. I think it sounds really cool!
