An award... Yippee!

Elizabeth at That Short Blonde Girl has bestowed a mighty nice honor... The Stylish Blogger Award. I know I am repeating myself when I say I am honored. I've been a fan of her blog for a while now (being a fellow petite and all) so I am so excited to accept this award!

Here are seven things about myself:

1. I read The Boston Globe every Sunday.
     The Globe has been apart of my household my whole life. My dad read both the daily and Sunday Globe and I would steal it as soon as he was done with it. He instilled in me a love for reading, and of course, The Boston Globe.

2. I love Target!
     Love is actually an understatement. I swear, I must go there at least once a week, whether it's to pick up something real quick or just take a quick walk through. I can always find fun, stylish, and practical things.

3. My hubby and I are college sweethearts!
     Mr. S and I met his freshman year of college because our work study jobs were next door to each other. It took almost a full year before anything developed, but I am so thankful for my Student Activities job! Our 10th year of dating is this April and we'll be celebrating 5 years of marriage this June :)

4. I want to join my "local" Junior League.
      I've been researching the Junior League since Hopsy at Monograms and Manicures mentioned it (2009/2010?). The only problem is the most local chapter is located either in Boston (30 minutes away) or Worcester (15 miles from work; 45 miles from home). I have a request in to them for information but I don't know what will come of it since I live so far away. I wish there was a NH chapter! It would be more convenient!

5. I'm currently working on my M.A.T in English.
     As a teacher, it is important to continue learning and growing as a professional. I'm working towards this degree because it will also help me gain a professional license, which helps in terms of seniority and pay. I also love to learn and love talking about literature. It's a win-win.

6. I listen to alternative music.
     I love Boston's WFNX. It plays awesome music like Foster The People, The Black Keys, Adele, Deathcab for Cutie, and others.

7. I'm picking up tennis this summer.
     My town's recreation department holds lessons every summer for adults on the town courts. This year I'm going to sign up. I'm very excited to add another sport to my skill set.

I would like to pass on this award to five new blogs I've enjoyed following recently...

2. Confessions of a Teenage Political Queen
5. Teaching in Heels
