Look at me. I'm Stylish.

A big THANK YOU to April from A Bird's Eye View 
for nominating me for a 
Stylish Blogger Award

The conditions of receiving this award are:
* Thank and link back to the person(s) who gave me this award.
* Share 7 things about myself.
* Pay it forward to 15 recently discovered great bloggers.
* Contact those bloggers and tell them about the award.

7 Things About Me:
1. There are 5 children in my family. 2 boys, one at each end of the family, and 3 girls in the middle. I am second youngest and therefore the youngest girl. Mum and dad still call me "baby girl" even though I am 28 years old. I like it.

 2. I work as an auditor in a state government department. What they say about auditors is true. You should meet my workmates. I have a personality and therefore am an exception to the rule.

3. My wedding dress was dark grey. Everyone said it was too unusual and that I would regret not wearing white. White has never suited me, I am too pale. I loved my dress and wouldn't change it for the world.

4. My husband and I were only going out for 7 months when we got engaged, and we got married 3 months after that.  On our first date he took me to my favourite restaurant, then we went for a walk and sat on a park bench drinking hot chocolates and people-watching. He proposed to me on that same bench.

 5. My best friend and I have known each other since we were babies. Our older brothers and sisters were all friends so when we were born later on (a fortnight apart), it was a natural progression for us to be friends too. BFFs. :)

6. I have 3 nephews, the eldest is 5, middle one is 3 and youngest is 2. The middle one lives in England so besides their short visit here over the New Year break, we only get to see him on Skype. The other two live 5 houses away from us so we see them most days. I adore all my nephews, they are such beautiful, sweet, funny boys!

7. We don't want to have children. As much as my MIL, family and others try to convince us otherwise, we are not planning to have children and we are happy in our own little bubble, loving our nephews to bits and cherishing our time with them and on our own.

I can't believe people said that you would regret your wedding dress choice - it was amazing, and it suited you beautifully.

As for people trying to convince you to have children, that would be annoying! But you do have two very cute fur-babies! As long as you and your husband are happy, that is all that matters :)

Thank you for mentioning my blog Aunty Annie (don't forget your fur-neices!). I haven't updated my blog in a long time. Mummy hardly lets me on her Mac and now that Jasmine has gone it's sad not writing about her.

I will start writing again though
