Guest Post and an Award!

Today was a fantastic day, folks! I did my very first guest post for another blog, and also received my very first blog award! Fabulous-ness all wrapped in a Friday!

First of all, go read my guest post over at [Life of Meg]!!! Well, after you read the rest of my post, of course ; )

Secondly, my bff Meggie Moo (haha that's what we called her in middle and high school!) gave me the Beautiful Blogger Award. Pardon my blushing, but I'm just so flattered to be honored so early in my blogging career! Not to mention that she was the one who turned me on to blogging in the first place! Could a girl ask for a better friend?!

In order to receive my award, I'm supposed to post seven fun facts about myself and then pass the award along to a few other beautiful bloggers. So here it goes...

1. My favorite movie ever is You've Got Mail. As in I can quote every single line. And I'm not kidding. From beginning to end I could literally recite that movie. Obsessive? I prefer to think of it as therapy for my soul to watch that movie for the 4,567th time : ) Also, Meg Ryan's apartment in that movie was one of the first times I remember falling in love with a space and decor scheme. I saw it in the sixth grade ... and have been decorating ever since!

2. My favorite holiday is Halloween. I LOVE it. I love fall, love pumpkins, love dressing up ... love the whole dang thing! Give me some black and orange glittery decor item and I'm a happy camper!

3. Coffee Mate Amaretto creamer in my coffee makes my life. As in I might die without it. It is my heroine.

4. I love my mommy. She is the most amazing, beautiful, kind, caring, giving and hard working person I have ever met. She's my inspiration. And she's also the most gorgeous early 50-something woman you will ever see. Seriously, most people think she's in her 30s, and I swear more guys check her out than me when we're together. I've got one hott mama! (Also, ten bucks says she will cry when she reads this... you're crying right now, aren't you mom?)
5. I LOVE my job and the fact that I get to do the perfect mix of writing, creativity, planning, graphic design, communications, marketing and advertising. Most people only get to do one small part of that, and I'm lucky enough to do it all! But the best part is, all of that work is so that people can know who Jesus is, and how incredibly loved they are by him. Do you know that? I hope you do. If not, I'd love to talk to you about why that's the most important thing you can hear.
6. This one is my confession fact: I have the messiest room ever. I keep the rest of the house pretty clean but I am horrible about keeping my room picked up. It looks like Francesca's, Anthropologie, Target and Dillard's got in a fight in there. Clothes, jewelry, shopping bags and shoes galore... *sigh*
7. I've decided that the few short months I've been following blogs have changed my life. It has strengthened my dream more than ever to someday own a home decor boutique or go into decorating. I truly love communications, but I think I'll need some combination of both of my passions to be happy. This blog community has strengthened my passion for decorating, as well as made me realize it is possible to live a creative and beautiful life, and maybe even make a living from that creativity ... with a really great business plan, that is. Maybe someday!
And I'm passing along the love to some of my very favorite bloggers. The award goes to...

Over and out for now! Don't forget to go read my guest post!! : )

  1. Congratulations!
    You have a lovely blog & I look forward to following you through all of life's many adventures!
    Smiles friend,

  2. Hi Courtney,

    I just became your 35th follower. I think it is only a matter of time- a short time- before you have 335. I like your style, your energy, and the loving and generous things you say about your BF, your sweetie, and your lovely mom, who is stunningly beautiful. Although I am closer to her age than yours, I will enjoy reading your blog for a glimpse into the lively world that is yours. Thanks for the gift of your words, and good luck with the blog.

    OK, so I cannot tell a lie - yep, I cried when I read that & then I had to laugh when I got to the part saying that I would be crying *sigh* It is my curse, I guess, to have been born with a soft heart & overactive tear ducts! Ha!

    Hahaha - had to laugh, also, at the messy room part - that's my Courtney girl!

    Love you more than words can convey~~xoxo
    Mom (It won't let me post my name/URL either, just like Mira)

  4. I just stumbled upon your blog. So first, congratulations on your award! And it's lovely getting to know you in this post too. My favourite romantic comedies are You've Got Mail and Sleepless in Seattle. Great looking family too!

    I look forward to reading more. I'm now a follower.
