The Awards Ceremony

After successfully linking up with the Newbies Blog Hop I have had so much fun getting to know some fellow newbies.  When I receive a comment, I always go check out their cute blogs for inspiration.

I have some exciting news for you:

1. I have 10 followers!  I am excited to get to know each and every one of them!
(You ladies are too kind.)
2. I have been nominated for 2 different awards!

Drumroll please.

I am so honored to receive these two awards.  Thank you to Mrs. Livers from Starring in First Grade, Laura from Oh, How Pinteresting! (Cute title!), and Kim from Lessons, Learning, & Laughter!  This post would not be possible without you :)  Go check out their up and coming blogs!

Guidelines for the combined awards:
1. Thank the blogger who nominated you
(and follow their blog)
2. Link back to the person who nominated you
3. Include the award image in your post
4. Give 7 random facts about yourself
5. Nominate 15 other bloggers for the award
6. When nominating, include a link to their blog
7. Let other bloggers know they've been nominated

And the Versatile/One Lovely Blog Award Goes to ….
(in no particular order)

7 Random Fact about The Frizz
1. All within the year 2010 I received my bachelor's degree, got married, signed my first official apartment lease, and got my first real job teaching FIRST graders! (lots of firsts!)

2. I think wearing orange, red, or pink clashes with my red hair.  These colors tend to be my least favorite.
3. I have been known to have the temper that comes along with red hair. 
(The first step is admitting right?)
4. I am the youngest of three sisters.  
We all graduated college the exact same semester.  
I got married, and they both followed within a year and 1/2.

5. I love giraffes!  I think they are the most creative and interesting creatures on earth! 
6. I want to wear my bridesmaids dress to a fancy party because it is green and cute.  (See #4)
7.  My favorite number is eight, so I am a little tempted to create another random fact just so I can use the number 8!

Thanks for stopping by!
