Some New Awards to Pass On

I recently received this prize from Ana of Sweet Almond Tree and was tickled pink.

Here are the rules:

  1. In your post, mention the blog that gave you the award.
  2. Reveal 7 things about yourself you'd like to share with others.
  3. Choose 10 blogs that you love and award them the same prize.
7 Things About Me:

1. I lived in Hawaii for most of my life, but still don't know how to surf.

2. I love to sing in the shower or anywhere else in my apartment as long as I can convince myself that no one else can hear me. (It's not that I sound bad, I'm just real self conscious.)

3. I'm crazy about Korean dramas. My Name is Kim Sam-Soon and My Girl are two of my favorites.

4. I have always dreamed of going to Italy. According to my mom, if I plan on going to Positano while I'm there, I have to take her too.

5. I'm of Japanese descent, but I can't speak Japanese. However, I can speak Brazilian Portuguese.

6. The one sweet treat I cannot live without is ice cream, especially if it has lots of goodies mixed into it. Cookies and Cream is my go-to flavor.

7. I collect business cards. My sister and I started collecting them years ago just for fun and I've even got a whole bunch of them from Brazil.

And The Awards Go To . . . (drumroll please)
