The Versatile Blogger Award!

I was running errands today with a friend when I noticed my phone flashing.  I've been inundated with emails lately, but this one caught my eye.  The lovely Sarah from Giveaway Lifestyle had nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award!

Apart from being a great blogger herself, Sarah had always been a constant and thoughtful contributor to my blog.  In fact, she was my first giveaway winner back at 25 followers and was lovely enough to be my first guest post.  She's one of the reasons that makes blogging not just fun, but fulfilling.  Thank you so much, Sarah, for this honor!

As a winner, I have a few duties:

- List 7 things about myself
- Nominate 15 other bloggers I believe deserve this award

So here it goes!

1.  I have seen every West Wing episode probably about 6 times.  My obsession with Aaron Sorkin knows no bounds.  (However, Doctor Who is quickly catching up...)

2.  My two favorite places in the whole wide world are London and Capetown, South Africa.  But I can't imagine myself living anywhere but New York.

3.  I'm not good with babies...they sense my fear.  Once they start talking, I can happily carry on a babble conversation, but it's before that age that scares me.

4.  I don't get everyone's love affair with Mr. Darcy.  It's Mr. Knightley all the way.

5.  In my opinion, Mel Brooks is the most brilliant man alive.

6.  In a few short months, I will officially get my Masters in International Policy from NYU.  I have no idea what I want to be when I grow up though!

7.  I've always wanted to milk a cow.  Hasn't happened yet.

And on to my nominees...

Katherine -  Haul of Fame
Chelsea -  Nailed Blog
Rachel -  Top Coat It
Heather -  The Polished Panda
Sarah -  See Sarah Swatch
Amanda - Trbo Polish
Maryam - Fix Your Face
Emily - Squared Nails
Nihrida - Nihrida

There are so many other amazing bloggettes out there and I wish I could list them all!  (Seriously though, check out my blogroll, these ladies are top notch.)

Congratulations to everyone and thank you again, Sarah!
