a few summer photos & a nomination

recent summer photos around my area.

the wonderful jamie from xoxo, jamie brooke recently nominated me for the versatile blogger award! thank you so much jamie! it was such a nice surprise :)

onto the 7 random facts about me (this is part of accepting the award). i've posted a ton of random facts about me here on the blog (here, here, and here), and my 7 questions posts are full of them too, but i'll try to think of new ones ;) here we go...

1. i have a fear of wide open spaces. whenever someone mentions that they are claustrophobic, i just think of how it would feel to be in a tiny sailboat in the middle of the ocean (pretty much opposite of claustrophobia), and it freaks me out so much!

2. i'm coming up on my 5 year anniversary at my job in september. 

3. i've recently become obsessed with using coconut oil, especially after reading jess's post about at home beauty tips. i'm planning on trying it out on my skin at the pool this weekend (i read that it is a natural sunscreen, but don't worry, i'll bring some regular spf too). i've also been using it on popcorn, my favorite snack. i mix it with a fraction of the butter that i normally would melt on top, and it tastes amazing! it also tasted pretty good straight from the jar, too.

4. i just finished reading the end of everything by megan abbott. it's a really quick read, and i felt like i couldn't put it down a lot of the time. i was caught off-guard by how quickly it ended, so i'll have to think about it before i decide if i liked the ending. but as a whole i did like the book.

5. as much as i love the midwest, i've been thinking about other places i might want to live someday. definitely wouldn't mind doing the california thing at some point ;)

6. i do laundry really often, almost every other day. 

7. my favorite way to wear my hair, besides down & straight, is to wear a sock bun.

the next part is to nominate 15 other bloggers for the award. again, i'm going to break the rules a little on this one and nominate 5 bloggers:

modern buttercup // chanel & chocolate cake // gentri lee //  adventures in mediocrity // daniela yvonne

these are wonderful ladies with amazing blogs that you should definitely check out. (totally up to you bloggers if you want to follow along with the "rules" of the award, i definitely won't take offense if you decide not to :) you all deserve a shout out and i'm just happy to give one.)
