Blog Award

Thanks to DC Prep who tagged me for the Honest Scrap Award. Along with this award, I am supposed to list 10 honest things about myself. So here goes...

1. My favorite accessory is definitely a scarf. In the fall and winter I wear one almost every day and usually try to match them to my outfits so I can keep them on when I'm chilly.
2. Having clutter in the house really bothers me. I make sure to tidy up and throw away and extra mail, newspapers, etc. before bed almost every night. I have tons of bins and other modes of organization that I swear by.
3. I love receiving magazines and catalogs. I subscribe to many magazines, including Self, Glamour, Better Homes & Gardens and Bon Appetit. Every time I go to the airport I treat myself with UsWeekly or InStyle :)
4. I am left-handed.
5. I went to college and graduate school in the south. I think I am a southern girl at heart and want to move back some day.
6. My favorite professional sport to watch is baseball. My husband and I watch the Phillies on tv pretty much every night during the summer. We attend several games in person each year too, and I only eat hot dogs when we go to the game. For some reason I find them gross in all other instances but love them at the game.
7. I would travel just about every weekend if I could. I really enjoy going to new towns and cities and staying in hotels. Boutique hotels are my favorite, and I especially like the decor and style in the Kimpton Hotels.
8. I don't enjoy most movies - weird, I know, but I usually can think of so many other things I'd rather do with my two hours than watch a movie.
9. We have way too many proper drink glasses relative to the amount of entertaining we actually do. I think I went a little overboard on my registry as I have 12 of each of monogrammed cocktail glasses, water glasses, martini glasses, white wine glasses, red wine glasses and champagne flutes. Hopefully I will have more time for entertaining later in life.
10. I love to cook and try to make a proper dinner every night, even if it means we don't eat until 8 or 9pm. It is a good way for me to unwind at the end of each work day.
I tag anyone who wants to play along!
