The Preppy Mafia Blog Award

I'm so honored!!!!! I have my first blog award from Andrea at Life in Dawleywood - thank you Andrea!!!! The Rules: 1. Copy and Paste the above image onto your blog. 2. Answer the questions below. 3. Pass onto bloggers that you love and let them know they've been given this award. Welcome to the Preppy Mafia! Now for a few questions, you cannot refuse. 1. Who is your style icon (s)? The beautiful Jennifer Aniston is my modern day icon. I love her laid back, comfy chic style. Her minimal makeup and simple hair styles work for me as well
2. What is your favorite Socialite lit book?
I love all Emily Giffin, Sophia Kinsella, and Mary Kay Andrews books - easy reads and girl friendly.
3. Favorite party theme?
I've always wanted to try a masquerade party but no one is really into it. Really I just love cocktail or wine tasting parties. I guess in my area we don't really theme adult parties, thought my 5 year old niece had a bang up Miley Cyrus birthday party last year.
4. Go to Halloween costume?
I have a few. Athletic tank, yoga pants, ponytail and boxing gloves. Black dress, heels, and witch hat. Black shorts, football jersey and war paint under the eyes. I also have a set of wings I've matched with various outfits. We had a lot of costume parties throughout the year when I was in college so I used to keep a toga and pirate costume available for variety :-)
5. Extravagance you cannot live without?
I love getting my hair colored and styled professionally. I love going out to eat to local or reknown resturants (I'm such a foodie) . I also love the occasional shopping spree whether it's clothing or makeup.
6. Living person you admire?
Much love to the mama. My dad died when I was 13 so she basically raised me by herself, she is my best friend.
7. Greatest fear?
Losing a loved one. I buried my dad and grandpa in the same year. Last November my grandma passed. I can't imagine losing my mom (or husband and children if/when they are a reality).
8. Trait you deplore in yourself?
I'm highly critical, mostly of myself. My room needs to be clean when I go to sleep, I can't work if my office is messy, I can't stand when my nails are chipped, I hate when I see my roots when I want to long to color my hair, etc. I have to take a step back and tell myself to chill out.
9. Which talent would yo most like to have?
I'd love to be able to sing. I can't carry a tune in a bucket.
10. Greatest Achievement?
Um....I graduated college and got a job in the worst economy in half a decade. I'm not sure if I consider it an achievement or proof of God's grace. My goal in college was to get a job in renal nutrition and I started a new job this week in renal nutrition!! I'm hoping to acheive good labs and keep them within range = healthy patients!!!!
I guess it's my turn to pass the award. I was "off blogging" for a while during my move so I'm not sure if this is one of those big awards everyone has done but if you want to do it, I'd love to read it!
The award goes to
