Fancy This Fridays #27 and a Lovely Blog Award

This last week we received a LOVELY blog award!!!

Thanks Alisha!

From not one, but TWO LOVELY bloggers!!
So, a HUGE thank you to the lovely…

Alisha from Crafty Brooklyn Army Wife

AND Amanda Dale from The Ivy Cottage

THANKS so much for thinking of us lovelies!!!

I’m supposed to share seven facts about me now… So…

1. I played for the NM girls basketball team in a tournament in Queensland, Australia during the summer of my junior year in high school. 


2. I am just over two weeks away from marrying the love of my life! 

3. I won third place in the High Jump at my State Track Meet, my senior year of high school! Barely clearing another inch to beat out THREE other girls that tied for fourth!

4. My thesis for my MBA program in college was on preferences for local foods in restaurants. Buy local friends! Support your local economy! 🙂

5. My middle name is Marie. Just like my mom’s and my Granny’s. If I ever have a little girl, her’s will be Marie as well. 

6. My favorite food is tacos. I order them everywhere. My fiance teases me that I shouldn’t even look at the menu because I already know that I’ll order tacos. 


7. I was a NM State FFA officer my senior year of high school. I consider that time to be one of the BEST and FUNNEST things I have ever done!
