I'm A Stylish Blogger!!

Many thanks to my sweet friend CAS at An Oasis In The Desert for giving me this fun award.  I always enjoy getting to know my blog friends better through these cute little bios!

 Seven things about myself:

1. I am a Jersey Girl, born and bred.  Lived here my whole life and will probably never leave        (unless I win the HGTV Dream Home 2011, in which case I will be moving to Stowe, VT.)

2. I graduated from Rutgers University in 1991, got engaged to my college sweetie in 1992, we married exactly 1 year later in 1993, bought our first house in 1994 and had our first child in 1995.

3. If you didn't figure this out yet from #2, I'm very methodical and routine-oriented.  "Spontaneous" is not in my vocabulary!

4. I am one of three children - 2 older girls and a boy.  My husband is also one of three children - 2 older girls and a boy.  So naturally, we have 2 older girls and a boy (by next week.)  By now you have probably figured out that I'm just a little anal.

5.  I hate network television.  By that I mean, sitcoms and dramas.  I prefer shows on cable channels like HGTV, Bravo, Discovery and History.  Although I will admit to the guilty pleasure of The Real Housewives of (fill in the blank) and  Jerseylicious, which is NOT a good representation of true Jersey people, I assure you!

6. I hate crowds and avoid them at all costs.  

7. I never go to concerts (refer to #6).  But mostly because I don't believe in the concept of paying a lot of money to hear someone sing when I can just buy the song on ITunes for a buck and listen to it on my IPod in the comfort of my own space.

If you are a follower/friend, then go ahead and grab the Stylish Blogger Award and tell others more about yourself.  It's a fun way to get to know each other better, don't ya think??

Have a wonderful weekend.  Today is hubby's birthday (he's 43!) and we will be celebrating at home with family.
