7X7 Award

I was tagged by none other than Tyah Jo Haro for my first ever blog award!

Aww shucks =)

 ...I'm not really sure what I'm winning or how I'm winning it, but if we're being real here...I never win anything! So needless to say, I'm pretty pumped for the blog lovin' sent my way...and I don't even have a speech prepared!

For this award I have to share 7 facts about myself, link to 7 blog entries, and nominate 7 other bloggers for this fab award!

Shall we?!...

7 facts

1.) I'm afraid of grocery shopping. It's a legit phobia here folks. I always feel like I'm in the way, with other shoppers poppin' out of blind corners and sneakin' up on me and stuff. The fuller my shopping cart becomes, the more anxiety I get. When I'm in the check out line I can just feel everyone behind me giving me the stink eye and thinking like, "ugh this girl is seriously taking  foreeeverr." I don't know what it is, but grocery shopping is just not my thang.
Gives me heart palpitations.

2.) I love politics.
 Sometimes I watch C-SPan.
Weird. I know.
(Internship with United States Congressman David Schweikert, Fall 2011)

3.) You can't convince me that any book series that comes out now or any time in the near future will ever trump Harry Potter.

4.) If you give me a sunflower I'll totally be your friend

5.) I always complain about school and how many papers I have to write and blah blah blah...but secretly I love being in Grad School.

6.) I have a gap between my two front teeth. When I was little I thought it was just temporary and that my teeth would grow together and look oh-so-pretty like the girls in magazines.
But they never did.
And I never liked it.
But I can totally squirt water out from between them at a pretty impressive distance.
So I suppose it's not too bad.

7.) I love Jesus and I can't wait to get to heaven, and I want to take as many people there with me as I can
