Stylish Award and 4 giveaways!

 I have a few things I want to post about but since I don't want this post to be a novel I'm going to break them up into 2 or 3 different posts ;)

first of all,
Kinsey French awarded me the Stylish award. thanks :)

here are the rules:
one. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award.
two. Share 7 things about yourself.
three. Award 10 recently discovered great bloggers.

seven things about me:
I love that I can request items on my library website and I can go to the library and they are right there waiting for. seriously.
 I cannot stand heavy metal music. really any hard rock for that matter. Skillet is as heavy rock as i get.
I've gotten into this show called Larkrise to Candleford.

go ahead and call me old fashioned or a weirdo but I love shows and movies set around that time period(like Cranford, Emma etc.) Most of today's shows are just so messed up and I'd much rather watch something like this.There a 4 seasons and I'm borrowing them from the library. its a perfect show for the winter ;)
I really love photography. I'm saving up my money and I can't wait to get my hands on a camera like this:
I would love to travel, especially to New Zealand, Canada and England and photograph it. 
 I really hate the abbreviation Xmas. I can hardly type it. I can't it out loud, literally I can't make myself say it. I love the word Christmas. it has so much meaning and specialness. Xmas just doesn't make me feel the same way. So you are warned. please please don't say Xmas on my blog. please do not.
There are some really fabulous giveaways going on! I will tell you more about them in a minute.
I honestly and seriously don't like swimming or really getting in water. I'm not afraid or anything. it just doesn't interest me. even during the summer I'd take sitting in the 95 degree and dipping my feet in the pool than actually getting in. I know I'm weird like that.

For the awarding part, as I look through the blogs I follow, most of them have already been awarded. but you haven't yet and you follow my blog, you are officially awarded the Stylist Award by Yours Truly ;)
