Cloudy Skies & A Blog Award


This is going to be quite a mishmash of a post.. oops!

Hey! In case you missed this important piece of info from this post..

are you on Instagram?? (app for iPhone) my user name is:


((I'm also @alostfeather on twitter))

Let's be friends!

I'd love to see your pretty photos during the day.. it makes even the gloomy weather a bit brighter.

Now onto the part of the post that corresponds to the title: I was planning on spending the day relaxing outside with Boo. The weather was beautiful until it wasn't. All of a sudden it got cold and a huge grey cloud rolled in. Plan ruiner, that cloud. Oh well, gave me some time to catch up on your blogs (which I completely love doing!)

I finally just did some shopping for my mama over at Barnes and Noble. It's easy to go in there and buy things for other people.. it's hard to go in there and not buy things for yourself. Well, at least I think so. I couldn't control myself, I bought an art magazine. Sorry.

In other news, I got a little blog award from Miss A, from "Your Key to My Heart" (thank you, you are so sweet!) this morning, so that is what I will work on now!  Also, Sarah, from "Just Take a Bow," gave me an award some time ago, (thank you!) but I was silly busy at the time, so I did not get to participate. Anyhow, you should check out both of their blogs.. They are both SO sweet and fun (their blogs and they, themselves I mean!)

The rules for this award are:
1. Link back to the person who gave you this award
2. Tell us some things about yourself
3. Nominate 10 bloggers
4. Contact these bloggers and let them know they have received this award

10 Things About Myself:
1. I am pretty much always hungry
2. Every night before I go to sleep I check my closet to make sure no one is hiding in there
3. I eat more chocolate everyday than anyone I know
4. Road trips are my favorite. The more miles, the better
5. 11 more states until I've seen all 50
6. I'd rather buy cameras than clothing.. although I love clothing
7. I'm an airline snob and will only fly JetBlue (unless JB doesn't go where I'm going)
8. I quit my full-time 9-5 job to be an artist
9. I love watching golf and have it on right now
10. I'm addicted to Snapple.. pretty much any flavor will do 

aaaaand I shall pass this award toooo 
Rach, Shy, Marisa, Anna, Renée, Audry, Taylor, Laura, Bailey, Alexi

Happy Weekend and Happy (early) Mother's Day to the mommies!


  1. Haha! I can never go into Barnes and Nobles and not start coveting (and purchasing) either...there is nothing more magical then opening up a brand new book or magazine and losing yourself into another world...okay, okay...I'm getting a bit carried away, but yeah. It's an awesome place.

    By the way...2# made me laugh, cause sometimes I do the same:D lol!

  2. road trips are my favorite too. Though you definitely beat me at the states game.. sigh.

  3. Woohoo! Got that award too. :) Love your photos! As always. I'm so sorry your plans were ruined though! We luckily had a fabulous day here and I had to be inside all day. Of course. haha!

  4. love your your fan!

  5. i can bet that i probably eat more chocolate a day than you do. working in a chocolate shop will do that to you, hahahaah.

    and i'm pretty much always hungry too.

  6. That sucks about the weather...but that photo is awesome! And yes (in reply to your comment) I am so so so so so excited for India. I've in Udaipur for 3 months teaching english and then traveling all over!

    Carla xx.

  7. I love your inverted, upside downy thingy instagram photos :) lol

    and congratulations on the two awards!! I also feel the same about B&N...I'm a huggeeee book nerd and ADORE fiction and non-fiction(biography,memoir types). It's nice to treat yourself to something every once in awhile. We don't have a BN here so when I go it's a big event xD

    P.S. - Snapple is AMAZING

  8. Barnes and Noble is my weak spot too. My discount membership just expired there and I forgot to renew it so hopefully that will deter me from any big purchases.

    Also, those pictures of the sky are crazy cool.

  9. Congratulations on your award, haha! The comment on my post finally showed up. Yay! ;)
    Sorry to hear that the weather dampened your fun day out. But that is an amazing picture :O So cool! You are definitely one of the most creative people I know!

  10. Thank you for the sweet blog award!!!!!!

    And that sky picture(s) is AWESOME!

  11. Congrats on your award! So interesting how you converted this one photo into 4. Nice and unique..
    ..(following now, hope you have time to stop by mine soon..
