It's a major award!

Ok, not really, but my cousin Autumn gave the Stylish Blogger Award! 
There are 4 duties to perform to accept this award:
1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award
2. Share 7 things about yourself
3. Award 15 recently discovered great bloggers
4. Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award! 
Autumn is such a great friend to me.  We've actually only seen each other a few times, but whenever we get together we can't stop talking, and we can't stop finding things in common.  It's just wonderful.  I love reading her blog, because she find such meaning in her everyday life!  She is just awesome and I love her to death.
7 things about me:
1. I am having a really hard time coming up with these.
2. The beach is my favorite place in the world.
3. I love going to places I've never been to before, but I also love going to places I've been to 1,000 times with someone new.
4.  Making new friends scares me.  I'm terribly shy.  But not nearly as shy as I used to be.
5. I love old things.  Antique shops are like a paradise for me.
6. I'm the person that likes to stop and read all the plaques at a museum.  I want to be an expert.
7. When I first met my husband, I thought he was too cool to even give me a second glance.  Guess I lucked out.

My fifteen are (drumroll, please!):
Lyse, because she is one of the most amazing people I know.  She's simply bursting with creativity, and her blog reflects that.  Plus, she's my pen pal, so she has to get one.
Mandy, because she always has the greatest pictures.  Also, her blog is the cutest one I've ever seen!
Jessica. (California). Jessica was my bff in Primary, and her blog is amazing for many reasons, but I especially love it because I can watch her precious little boy grow up.  (P.S. Please we need to get together before you guys move!!)
Cait. My french buddy.  Her blog is amazing.  She takes a piece of art and relates to her life.  Sooo witty and perfect.
Lisa.  A blog of absolute randomn hysteria.  But so worth it.  So poop.
Asia.  I just barely started reading Asia's blog (I may have been facebook stalking...), but it's the greatest.  I can never stop laughing.  She tells the best stories from growing up/high school/college/everything.  Love it.
Tara.  Because who doesn't want to look at pictures of little baby Crew???  
Tara.  Maybe it's cheating to put her twice, but she has TWO great blogs.  This link is to her photoblog.  Best. Pictures. Ever.  She did our engagement photos. =]
Renee. Renee's blog was a staple in my life for awhile.  She and all her boys moved to Tahiti for awhile and the stories and experiences she told were addicting.  Plus the pictures of my little cousins growing up were so precious.
Brighton. Cute. Cute. Cute.  Just like her.
Jessica. (BYU). Jessica may only post once in a blue moon, but whenever she does, it's always something I feel like I relate to completely.  She also may be one of the cleverest people I know. (Lucky me, we were study buddies--and Brighton too!)
Melissa. She cracks me up. Enough said.
Garrett. He takes such great pictures.  I love all the candid ones of the the church kids.  So cute.
Zach/Carrie. Maybe I'm biased, but my brother-in-law writes the best missionary letters.
Brittany.  They're so cute!
Congrats guys!

Dear Lauren.
E-mail me or call me. Or both. We move on the 30th. So there is not much time left. But if we can work something out then lets do it!
