You Like Me, You Really Like Me

Whoooo-hooooooo! My very first blogger award! Many thanks to my friend Joy from Living On Trees for bestowing this upon me. I am so grateful to have her as a fellow blogger/mommy/Facebook lover.

Here are the rules of the award:
1. Link back and thank the fabulous person who bestowed the amazing award on you
2. Share 7 things about yourself
3. Award 7 other deserving and great bloggers
4. Contact the other bloggers to let them know of their award.

Seven things about me:
1. I was born in the Phillipines, raised on the island of Guam, moved to California when I was 14, and now reside in Chicago (as of Sept. 2010)
2. I love to cook but hate following recipes. I like to season according to my own taste, i.e. I put garlic powder in everything. Not in desserts though. Because that would be gross.
3. No matter how I do my hair (and amount of hours I waste styling it just right) I will end up putting it up in a bun sometime during the night.
4. I am a theater geek. I love all musicals, but my favorite, hands down, is Wicked. I might have even camped by the stage door to collect autographs after the show. Don't judge me, join me. (I love you, Eden Espinosa!)
5. I studied ballet, jazz, lyrical, and hip-hop dance for 18+ years. I haven't had the chance to go and take a class lately, but hopefully that will change soon.
6. I have a secret compartment in my brain that stores random bits of useless information. As my mother likes to say, "I could be rich if you would just go on a trivia game show."
7. I have a group of best friends from high school who are my heart and soul. They have understood facets of my personality that would leave you shaking your head in wonder (or disgust, depending on the day). We are called "Briskit". No not like the meat. More like "Brisk-what?" "Brisk-it!"

7 Lovely Bloggers to pass the award to:
1.Lifestyle Maven- I love to read Cailen's blog because it reads more like a magazine; edited personally by someone who shares your tastes.
2.Sara's Organized Chaos-Sara is hilarious, honest, and I am in love with someone who has turned me off chocolate milkshakes forever.
3. The Good, The Bad, and The Fabulous Sides of Style, Fashion, Beauty and Life- Jenny is a fashion lawyer in LA. I love her amazing style.
4.Ciao Bella: Bella has one of the best fashion blogs out there today. Her pictures are ALWAYS gorgeous and I love how she interacts with everyone on Twitter! Lol.
5.Thursday Night Smackdown- I love food. I love snark. I love Top Chef. 'Nuff said.
6.A Pre-Life Crisis- Lily's blog reads like Sex in the City: Beantown Edition.
7.Be Sassy Classy- Style, Faith, Family. Who says you can't have it all?

Love, Light, and Blogging, MARS

    As for the shorts, you totally CAN wear it now...with super thick tights and layered with a long wool jacket! But then again, I've never experienced Chicago winter so I could be way off the fashion mark. =)
