First off, thank you so much to Little Miss Can't Be Wrong for giving me the Versatile Blog award! I'm so appreciative of all of you that read my blog and follow me. I know its just starting out, but I've got a lot of big plans for it! Little Miss Can't Be Wrong's blog is so cute! Its called how i met your father, which is so clever! Btw, she's hosting a giveaway right now and it's really awesome!

Okay so the rules of the Versatility blog award areeee:
-link the award giver and thank them!
-list 7 things about yourself
-pass on the award

So here are my 7:

1. Sailing may be one of my largest priorities, but I'm really well rounded when it comes to what I do. I've been on Mock Trial, Science Olympiad, Soccer, Basketball, Softball, Gymnastics, Dance/Company, Swim Teams, Student Council, Tennis, Yearbook, Key Club, Spanish Club, Student Ambassadors, Lifeguarding, Singing, Theatre, and of course, Sailing, among other things. Because of this, I have many different groups of friends, which makes me look like a floater, but truthfully, I just am close with a mix of different types of people.

2. I've been to 7 different schools. I was the new girl at a feeder high school. I didn't know a soul! If these experiences have helped me with anything, its certainly that I am generally speaking very friendly. If it wasn't for that, I probably wouldn't have friends because everyone already knew everyone. 

3. I'm semi obsessed with nail polish and shoes. I have very very small feet so its so easy to find them on sale and since my feet don't grow, I don't get rid of them. As for nail polish, I have over 25 different OPI colors. There's a store by us that sells it for like $4 so I stalk up every time I go in there. Right now, my favorite is definitely lavender. Its a cute, girly color and has a nice presence on my summer tanned skin.

4. I love love lovvvvve traveling! My favorite place I have been so far is California. Last spring we flew into San Diego and for 9 days drove from there to Napa Valley. On the way, we went to Huntington Beach, Newport Beach, La Jolla, Venice Beach (so not classy), Santa Monica, San Louis Obispo, Los Angeles, Monterey, Big Sur, Carmel by the Sea, San Fransisco, Yosemite National Park, and Napa. It was amazing! Keep your eyes out for a post on the vacation!
5. I love Broadway! My school goes on a lot of trips to go see plays, so my friends and I always go! I've seen Rock of Ages, Hair, Phantom of the Opera, Lion King, and Wicked. My favorite by far is Wicked! I saw it with a really close friend from where I used to live and that made the play's meaning that much more special. I also love Kristin Chenoweth! I think she is absolutely fantastic and talented! Plus, she always wears pink in that play! 
6. For the longest time, I was so anti-prep because I thought it made me look exactly like my mom, who is very pretty but I didn't want to look like her since I was a teenager. My entire family is ultra preppy, and I wanted to have my own style. But since I was born, I always wore preppy clothes. When I went shopping, even when I tried to find a more surfer girl look, I always ended up getting a preppy vibe to it. Finally, I just realized what my style really was and that I can look young and still be preppy! Now, I'm not worried if I look like my mom and I love my clothes! I may be the only girl in my class who wears polos on dress down days or wears bright Lilly prints, but I like being original! I also like that I feel smart when I dress preppy. Plus, it kinda goes with being a sailor to be preppy. 

7. I really enjoy blogging! I started blogging after reading so many preppy blogs and realized that I could do it, too! I hope I'm doing the preppy blog world justice. I really love how kind everyone is and how motivating! I really appreciate all of you who read my blog and comment. Its so kind of you! I know I only have about 11  followers, but hopefully it'll grow! And those of you who are one of those 11, thank you so much! If you would ever like to see me post about something specific, just email me or comment on one of my posts. I'm always open to suggestions!
