Post 100!

Wow! I cannot believe that I have written 100 separate posts. I honestly thought I would get sick of blogging before I ever got close to reaching a milestone like this. And I have met so many wonderful people, including the lovely Emily from Amazing Grapes. I literally started following her from the second I saw her blog name, I'm a sucker for a good pun! Emily has given me my very first blogging award! THANK YOU!!!!!!!!

The rules are clear:

- Thank the award-giver and link back to them in your post.

- Tell your readers 7 things about yourself.

- Give this award to 3 bloggers.

- Contact those bloggers and tell them the exciting news!

Onto my seven things...

#1 I really want to stay in an ice hotel. SO badly! Which is odd considering I hate the cold but I just think it would definitely be a once in a lifetime experience.

#2 My mum is the cutest. She just brought me an early birthday present which is the BEST!! Love my mum. You know how women turn out like their mothers? I'm looking forward to it :)

#3 I have a really weird phobia. I guess it's not a phobia because I'm not afraid of it, I just hate it and seeing it makes me gag. Watching people brush their teeth. UGH! Just writing it out causes me to picture it in my head and makes me want to hurl. I have decided that it is the foam that really does it for me.

#4 Jurassic Park is the scariest movie of ALL time! For reals. Velociraptors in a kitchen?!?! And now as a result, I find industrial kitchens equally as terrifying. Bonus random fact: The first time I went on the JP ride at Universal Studios, I genuinely started crying in fear. My dad thought it was hilarious. I was 14.

#5 I was 13 on Friday the 13th!

#6 I used to hate my name until I discovered Petrarch. He was the dude that invented the sonnet and wrote most of his ones to his muse, a woman named Laura. I have super amazingly romantic poetry dedicated to me!

#7 I think the cape is a very sexy accessory for a man. However in real life, if someone came up to me wearing a cape, I would definitely be like "um... you're wearing a cape, you weirdo!". Which is why I need to start dating someone who is from the 18th century or a superhero or likes to visit Medieval fairs. Only one of those options is viable... Batman, you have my number. Call me.

My chosen three are

Danielle from danielle carey who was one of my very first online friends ever!

Abigail from Abigail and the Great World who is a new friend but also happens to be another version of me, just living in America.

Kristy from Musing of an Unenthusiastic Blogger who is a real life BFF. True to her blogger name, she is a very unenthusiastic blogger, so maybe this award will kick her bum back into blogging!!


Kristy said...

Oh no the pressure is on Laura. I promise I will blog this week....hahaha sometime....before next Sunday...hahaha.

Danielle said...

Completely apart from the fact that you gave me an award and I'm so honoured, I just loved this post!!

#2. I hear you. I feel the same way about my mum! Aren't mums fantastic?

#3. I've always had this thing how I feel sure that if you see each other brushing your teeth, it means you're true friends. I guess this won't happen for us! However, you still talked to me after I wasn't as passionate about popcorn as you, so i think we're safe.

#4. I loooove Jurassic Park, but you're right. It's still scary!

#6. Laura is a beautiful name! So feminine and classic.

Congrats on your 100th post!! Woo Hoo!!

Gentri said...

Congrats on 100 posts and your award! :D So, I too think Jarassic Park is terrifying! I have nightmares... And brushing teeth?? hahaha! That's kind of funny... sorry. :/

Kelsey Cole said...

these were so fun to read! (i found your blog from Sloanbook:)
your comments about the man cape had me cracking up! so funny! I'd totally date batman too, he is sexy:)

and.. I've never heard of an ice hotel, but that sounds so incredibly amazing! I need to find out more about those...
congratulations on the award and 100 posts!

Abigail said...

Yay!!! Thank you! You're the best! And, predictably, I agree with most all of your 7 things. Once I had a friend who had a crush on a girl named Laura, and I called him Petrarch as a joke. Seriously. :)

Ashley {hudson's happenings} said...

Aww! Congrats on the award, lady! You deserve it! :)


on #1: there is no way I could stay in one of those! Brrrrr!!! We took Hudson to an "ICE" exhibit last Christmas and I nearly froze to death the 15 minutes we were in there. I am just not accustomed to cold.

on #4: agree that Jurassic Park is quite frightening. But for me...the most frightening movie EVER is Jaws. YIKES. And even scarier now that all these terrible man-eating shark stories are all that you hear lately!

on #6: that is sooooo cooooooool! I wish I had at least a song or something about me. :( Alas, I just have one of the most common names in all of the world. Blah.

Yay for 100 posts! YOU ARE A FABULOUS BLOGGER! xx

Katie said...

Wow, 100 posts already? Here's to another 100!
