And the winner is....

ME!!!! Its me:) Yay. I never win anything....Ok I do, but I seem to have forgotten all the other times. I'm so excited!

My good friend Wendy over at Healthy Girls Kitchen, along with The Life have both recently bestowed upon me the Stylish Blogger award. Apparently this means I am double stylish. Score.

In order to do my duty to this prestigious award I must:

1. Make a post & link back to the person who awarded me this award- Done. See amazing blogs above.
2. Share 7 things about myself- Wait for it...
3. Award 10 recently discovered great bloggers- So many to choose from!
4. Contact these bloggers and tell them they’ve won!- But I haven't chosen yet...this is hard.

Lets start with me. I apologize in advance to those of you who already know me too well;)

1. I am an actress. And whats more, is I am ALWAYS typecast as a mean and or evil person. I dig it. You can check out a preview from a film I was in directed by Lee Whitman that has been winning some awards, called War Stories:

2. I'm slightly nomadic/I move alot. There was one point in my life where I lived in six states in a two year period. This makes me a packing expert. I can pack my entire apartment and load everything into my car in an hour and twleve min. Bam.

3. I love the smell of puppies. Yum.

Took this when I went dog sledding--so fun!

4. I have a self diagnosed illness (which I also made up) I refer to as "grass is greener syndrome." I periodically become unhappy, or get an "itch," and decide I need to change something drastic. This illness is the catalyst for many of my life decisions including: Moving anywhere I've ever lived (always with less than a weeks notice), becoming a zipline tour guide in Alaska, and skydiving to name a few.

5. I have weird body issues. For example, I think bones and veins are gross. I will FREAK OUT if you put direct pressure on my bones (wrist especially). And for no reason would I ever allow someone to pop my toes.

6. I have a day job- Sales Person. I have sold tons of random stuff--hair straighteners, green tea, lawn aeration, trash service, knives, nail designs, guidebooks to get a government grant, attic insulation, and believe it or not theres more. I can basically sell anything.

7. I can't sleep with my feet under the covers. It feels too confined. Don't tuck me in, don't fence me in.

And the Winners ARE:

Before I do this I just want to say, I have found a TON of amazing blog in the short time I've been doing this and I love you all:)

My Winning Year 2011--Darla is my soulmate. Every thought I have, she has first.
Future Bombshell--I've included a link to my fav post of hers.
Lyndy Butler Music-- Lyndy is an amazing musician who blogs about life, love, weightloss and music.
Bigger Than My Body--Sometimes funny, sometimes deep, always good.

  1. This is awesome! Thanks for the Kettlebell advice. Have a specific workout you use for the "tush"?


  2. With every blog posting you do, I love you a little bit more. But this posting, I love you a lot more! You are a riot!

  3. Well thank you very much! This is the second time I've been bestowed this honor. Cheers!

  4. Aww, thanks Dani! Should say: Sometimes funny. Sometimes Deep. Always insane.

  5. Thanks so much for the award Dani! I'm totally flattered!
    Hey, you're an actress, that's so cool! I totally want to see that movie now. Is it out in theatres or on DVD. I'm into it: watched the trailer and was hooked.
    You and I suffer from the same made up illness. I will sometimes sit at my computer, and before opening up my gmail, think: "Please let something terrific be waiting for me in there." So maybe my illness isn't Grass-Is-Always-Greener, maybe mine is I-Need-Something-Terrific-to-Happen-Before-Next-Week-Or-I'll-Sink-Into-A-Deep-Dark-Depression-and-Will-Yell-at-Everyone-Around-Me syndrome.
    I've put the shortcut to your blog on my desktop. I like you :)

  6. Thanks for the shout out and the links to other great blogs!

  7. Aw, super sweet! Thank you so much, Dani! I am honored. :)

  8. That trailer! Eeeek! It's the first I've seen someone I know in a film trailer :))))
    I love getting to know more about you, Danielle!

  9. One of my dreams it;s to get on the top of a mountain like this and take photos. To can feel the change of altitude so amazing.


Talk to me Harry, tell me all about it!
