Stylish Blogger Award: 7 Things

Some of the most lovely ladies I know awarded me this amazing little bloggy award, the "Stylish Blogger Award". So a biggest, and most delayed THANK YOU to The Now, Bijou and Boheme, and The Fabulous Design File. So its not that I was being a blog grinch, really more just being lazy and wondering if anyone actually cared to read seven random facts about me. But you know what, I have SO enjoyed reading everyone else's facts, so why not?!

1. I am the oldest of 5 children. And oldest by a lot, I am 25, the youngest is 2.
2. I have been dating the same amazing man (boy) since we were 17. Five of the eight years we have been dating were spent long distance. Not fun, but it has made living together in Chicago that much more incredible.
3. I love dogs more than people. I'm being serious. My puppy son is my most favorite. EVER. He has completely ruined my apartment with his horrible shedding issues and his baby paws trashed my wood floors like you've never before. But I forgive him.
4. I dont know how to ride a bike. Maybe you are thinking to yourself "Alex, you shouldn't be revealing this to all of your 10 readers" but really I think its funny. My boyfriend has made it his life goal to teach me (I came home one day and found "how to teach an adult to ride a bike on google search) but honestly, I am not really interested.

5. I have a crazy fro of curly hair that I take drastic measures to hide. Kertain treatment, you are my soul mate

6. I used to be completely afraid of boats until I started dating a boy whose family had one. After a couple of times of being coerced onto the boat, I fell in love. It is really my most favorite thing about Chicago now. If I could spend every single day summer day out on a boat, I would.
7. I am not even the tiniest bit athletic (really, its ridiculous) but I LOVE Chicago sports. Aside from boating, its my second favorite thing in Chicago. Baseball games in the summer (Sox AND Cubs), Hawks, Bears and Bulls the rest of the year. I don't discriminate, I will go to any game that I can!

Well thats it, seven things you probably didn't know about me. Can I tell you something horrible? I'm not going to pass this along, but I really do love all of you amazing readers and your comments make me smile every day. Thanks for being such lovelies. xoxo


  1. If you learn to ride a bike then Doodle will pierce her ears! That means we get to see how saunter into a Claire's and sit in that little baby chair! Come onnnnnnnn.

  2. Hmm.. how=her. It's early. Love you bye

  3. I loved reading these things about you! Your lil pup looks just like mine, except a puppy version of her :) And I'm the fifth child in a family of 7!

  4. I don't blame you, it's why I haven't done this thing yet either. There are too many favorites and i would hate to hurt someone's feelings if I left them out!!

    You and your bf are adorable. and amazeballs ;)

  5. Bravo Alex for completing this! I recieved this award from a couple bloggers and have felt like a closet stooge for not posting it yet! It seemed like something that would take me a while to do because you want to think about it. Love your 7 things!

    p.s. We need to talk about this kertain treatment- it freaks me out! Your hair looks amazing so obviously I need to reconsider. I have a lions main to tame myself!!

  8. I really do love the glimpse inside the bloggers life that these awards provide... not to sound creepy! I loved all 7. Thanks for sharing doll!
    Have a fabulous weekend. xo

  9. You don't know how to ride a bike and I don't know how to swim. But I could doggy paddle like crazy.

    Here's to hoping the Bears make it to the Superbowl. They still have a chance, right?

  10. Loved learning more about you! We seem to have a lot in common :)

    I am also the oldest, oldest, although my gap isn't as large as yours (just 13 years). I also struggle with a fro. And I'm also not the least bit athletic yet love to watch sports.

    Hope you're having a great weekend!

  11. Oh yes, hell yes the bears have a chance!! I'm going to the game tomorrow! BEAR DOWN

  12. Congrats on the learning more about you!!

  13. I don't know how I missed this- boo..Anyhow- loved loved learning more about you and how cool that you have such little gorgeous siblings- too cute! You and your boyfriend are gorgeous together and I loved reading all about the little things that make you you- fabulous all around lovely! xo

  14. What a cute list! I totally love that you posted about not knowing how to ride a bike...seriously, you aren't missing much. (c: Congrats, you deserve it!

  15. The bike comment is fantastic. Very sweet that he is making it his "mission" to teach you. At least it isn't a clutch 5 speed, and his car. That makes things interesting.

    P.S. Your doggie son is darling. We forgave many things our little baby girl did because she was so sweet. (English Springer Spaniel now in doggie heaven)


Thank you so much for your comment, and I'm VERY sorry for the word verification, I had to do it, too much spam!
