Versatile Blogger Award Get-To-Know-You

Thanks to Ms. Lizard from Nails by Ms. Lizard for passing this along to me :)

The rules  as follows...
1.) List 7 things about yourself 
2.) Pass it along to 15 bloggers

Oh boy, 7 interesting things about me? Let me think...
  1. I am almost done growing my super thick hair out to donate for the second time to be made for wigs for children with cancer. It's down to the very bottom of my back--cutting VERY soon! I'm still debating between Locks of Love and  Beautiful Lengths. I'm going to be doing a separate blog post about it later on (Ms. Lizard I almost died when I saw you're doing this as well! Awesome!).
  2. I chose my first eyeshadow at the age of 4. Yes, 4! I saw an olive green shadow at a drugstore and begged my mom and she gave in ;) It's been in love ever since. This was the same year I begged to get my ears pierced! I was a girly-girl and I knew exactly what I wanted!
  3. I got my nose pierced at 16 back before it was a fad, but because I wasn't 18 I had to have my mom come with me and sign a permission slip! I still have it all these years later and never intend to take it out. 
  4. Writing (if you hadn't guessed by my blog's name) is my other non-family love and I've been doing it my entire life. I actually had a children's book published 2 years ago, but would love to get into YA down the road. I actually used to work in publishing! 
  5. Hubs and I have known each other almost our entire lives, but I actually dated our mutual best friend for 5.5 years before Hubs and I ended up together! Crazy, right?
  6. I am the oldest of 8 kids and a bunch of my siblings are significantly younger because my parents took a break from having kids for about 6 years in between.
  7. I am the first person of mixed decent on my Dad's side (they're all 100% Japanese) and it was actually a huge deal to my Dad's family.
I nominate the following 15 bloggers:

You guys have fabulous blogs that I regularly hop on to!


  1. Thanks lady!! Love that you are donating your hair!!!!!!!!!! This is going to be hard, all the interesting facts about me are Rated R hahaha :-P

  2. @Mercedes You're welcome! I've been waiting to talk about my hair until I cut it but it's hard to think of 7 blog-friendly facts haha ;) All R-rated, oh boy haha!

  3. Hi Doria!

    First major kudos to hair donation. My niece (she's 12) has donated 2 ponytails. Her and her best friend partnered up to grow & donate.

    Second kudos on the nose piercing. I've had mine since I was 15! Yeah agreed on piercings being the "in-thing" now. Back then piercings made you weird. Now I have to find new things to make me weird.

  4. @Ms. Lizard I'm more crazy than weird I think ;) I love my nose piercing! I honestly don't think I'd like my face without it, it's become such a part of me!

  5. thanks for the mention! i love your facts and blog!

  6. Thank you! Loved reading about you - it's always nice to read about the person behind the blog ;) I can't believe you published a children's book! That is so amazing!

  7. @Larie You're welcome! Yeah it's definitely interesting because you already have this window into someone's life, but I often forget it's so tiny compared to the full picture!

  8. omg you are so sweet!!! I am so happy you are growing your hair out to donate!!Seriously that is so kind. I would love to do that if I had any hair lol. damn fine hair =(
    You seem so interesting,published a book! awesome =) I liked reading these facts!=D and thanks for tagging me!

  9. @*MoNtseR GiRl* You're welcome! I wish I had fine hair haha. Mine is SOOOO thick it gives me headaches. These are definitely fun, can't wait to read everyone else's!
