Blog Award

This fun blog award is from my dear friend, Cindy. I have known Cindy since college when we were both apart of a business organization, Phi Beta Lambda. She went to school in Oklahoma while I was at the University of Memphis, but we continued to stay in touch! We were even in the same sorority (just at different campuses!) We reconnected through Facebook and through this crazy blog-world and I am so happy about that! I have missed talking to her!

She says this award comes with strings attached, so I must answer some questions about me. I hope you are interested.

1. Where is your cell phone?
Right beside me. I am one of those crazy people who must have it beside me at all times, even when I am sleeping.

2. Where is your significant other?
What significant other?!

3. Your hair color?
I am a natural blond, just a little enhanced!

4. Where is your mother?
She is in Memphis, probably is 4:25am in Memphis right now.

5. Where is your father?
He is in Memphis, probably sleeping right now as well.

6. Your favorite thing?
Right now, my favorite thing is to travel around Europe! I only have 5 months left and a lot more ground to cover!

7. Your dream last night?
I do not think I had a dream last night, I was too exhausted to dream!

8. Your dream/goal?
Live life to the fullest and take advantage of the opportunities that, sometimes, fall right into your lap!

9. The room you’re in?
Oh boy, this is probably not good to type here, but I am in a conference room at work in a meeting. We are taking a little break so I am catching up on my blogging!

10. Your hobby?
Photography and scrapbooking.

11. Your fear?
Flying! I know, I know. How can it be!?

12. Where do you want to be in 6 years?
Ummm, good question. I am not one of those people who makes such long-term goals. I try to live day by day and not focus too much on the future. Is that bad?

13. Where were you last night?
Last night, I was at home working. Lots to get done before I leave tomorrow!

14. What you’re not?
I would like to focus on what I am, instead. I am a Jesus loving, photograph taking, international traveling, positive thinking, out-going, picky-eating, friend cherishing, family loving, dog obsessed, scrapbook-crazy, chocolate loving, non-French speaking American blogger girl! (I am sure I left out a few of my other traits and loves!)

15. One of your wish-list items?
I cannot wait to get a Mac when I move back home!

16. Where you grew up?
I am Mississippi girl!

17. The last thing you did?

18. What are you wearing?
Since it is a workday, I am in black slacks and a sweater! It is already cold in Belgium!

19. Your TV?
My TV is at home and on for Maxie and to deter any potential thieves! I have no idea what kind it is. I do know that it works in Europe and in the US!

20. Your pets?
Oh goodness, that would be My Maxie!!! Need I say more?!

21. Your computer?
Just my work computer. It is a Dell laptop.

22. Your mood?
Excited! I leave for my cruise tomorrow!!!!

23. Missing someone?
Always! I really miss my family and friends!

24. Your car?
European car provided by the company, Ford Fiesta! I love it! It is tiny enough to park in the tiniest places!!

25. Something you’re not wearing?
Jeans, maybe? What else do you want to know??

26. Favorite store?
I do not have a favorite store in Brussels; however, Target is definitely my favorite store in the US!

27. Your summer?
Filled with visitors! Yay!

28. Love someone?

29. Your favorite color?

30. When is the last time you laughed?
Last night!

31. Last time you cried?
Sunday, October 12th when my apartment was broken into.

Cindy says I'm supposed to tag some friends to join the fun. Check out their blogs. They have some good stuff.

    Tippa I love this! I found out even more about your wonderful self!
    Have a super fun cruise and bring us back some great pics.
    smooches to Maxie~

  2. I saw your comment on Sara's blog and hopped over. What fun! I have never been to Belgium although I have traveled many other parts of Europe. Sadly, though the words that also caught my eye were about your apartment being broken into... my husband's office was also broken into just yesterday... how are you coping? Any advice or wisdom you can share? We're a little overwhelmed with this new path we're on.

    I'll be stopping back in as I see lots of interesting things and feel free to hop over if you'd like. Have a good day!

  3. Vicky - Send me an email and I will give you some info on the robbery.

  4. That was so fun to read... and I am SO EXCITED for your cruise. That's weird, I know, being excited for someone else's trip, but it just sounds like so much fun. Give Maxie a squeeze... I'm sure she will be properly spoiled while you're gone. :)
