Versatile Blogger Award!!

Today I was awarded the Versatile Blogger Award by Candy Box Beauty Reviews. Thanks!! (Actually, my Korea blog was nominated.)


1. Nominate 15 fellow bloggers who are relatively new to blogging or whose blogs you enjoy the most.

2. Share seven random facts about yourself.

3. Thank the blogger who nominated you.

4. Add the Versatile Blogger Award picture to your blog post.


This is difficult because I feel like anyone who reads my blog knows everything about me (kind of creepy)… But here goes:

1. I have a brother, half-sister, half-brother, step-brother, and two step-sisters.

My brother Zach and I, Christmas 2010

My half-sister Callie, half-brother Wyatt, and me at Little Bradley Falls, May 2011

My step-siblings Ross, Lena, and Ruth (with their dad/my stepdad Clay and Lena’s son Carter) at our parents’ wedding reception, July 2011

2. Two things I’m looking forward to having when I return to America are a clothes dryer and a bathtub (now, if only my mom’s house had other normal amenities like a dishwasher and garbage disposal, then I’d be set!).

3. My favorite actors are Sean Penn and Christian Bale.

4. I haven’t been in a wedding in over ten years but this summer I will be the maid of honor in my Korean BFF Ohee’s wedding.

5. I’m looking forward to turning 30 this year. Everyone else dreads getting older but I’ve always looked young so I don’t mind. When I was 27 someone asked what high school I went to! It’s insulting.

6. I’m considering eating dog before I leave Korea… What do you think about that?

7. Up until a few years ago I REFUSED to read or watch anything “unrealistic”. I was very stubborn about it. Then I read (and watched) the Twilight series which created a snowball effect… Now I watch True Blood (and read the books), The Walking Dead, and Game of Thrones.


1. Roots & Rings: I usually do the Ten on Tuesday weekly posts.

2. IBLOG4ME: I sometimes do the Tasty Tuesday weekly posts.

  1. Thank you for passing along the award to my blog and me!!! I feel very privileged. You last attended a wedding in a shorter time than I did. Last one was my daughter’s —over 20 years ago. Wow…time flies. AND….I too love Sean Penn. I think the man has a lot of class. [Christian Bale made a great Batman…hehehehe]

    Again, thanks, and hope you have a super happy day.

  2. Number 7 made me laugh ^^ That’s neat about the wedding too! I’m glad you made such a clost friend there. I want to make some good friends when I go, but I’m so shy (if I would need to initiate conversation with a stranger).
