TGIF and some Blog Loving

Excited for cocktail time... mojitos with fresh mint!
Cedar plank grilled shrimp...
Every weekend should be a 3-day weekend.  This weekend for me will be packed with watching movies, eating, getting stuff around the apartment done and a few other fun activities.  I've also got some blog loving to catch up on.  This week I am truly honored to have been awarded the Liebster Love award from Kristine at A Graceful Home and the Stylish Blogger award from Tamra at Walks with Bella.  Keep reading for more information and my own nominations!

Now for some blog lovin....The Liebster Blog award gives blog love to blogs with under 300 followers that you feel deserve some recognition (3).  The Stylish Blogger Award is for those ladies who provide you with daily inspiration and style (10)! These awards also suggest you reveal 7 facts about yourself so here goes:
Hanz and Franz before a DMB concert.  Yes we named the Tiki men.
 1) I have a weird affinity for sippy cups.  Whenever we go to a concert or a party or out, my bffl and we bring them.
2) I can never take the first item off the shelf while shopping.  In my mind too many people have probably touched it and for example if chips, crushed the chips... I know I'm crazy.
In a little town called Sintra, west of Lisbon.
3) One of my dreams is to own a vineyard in Portugal.  I fell in love with it a few years back on a Mother/ Daughter trip I took with my madre.
4) I get wayyy to competitive with board games and sometimes excuse myself from the game.  It may have something to do with being the youngest.

5) Kevin and I met freshman year of college at the Cornell men's and women's soccer team pre-season party playing beer pong (classy I know...).
6) I can't pronounce the word rural.
7) I have trouble sharing food and when giving the Boy or others  taste of something, will subconsciously pull the fork or icecream away at the last second.  I'll blame that on being the youngest too...
