Being sick and Liebster Award

    This week started off pretty good but quickly turned... Tuesday I woke up with a head which quickly grew to a stomachache which then turned to body ache. I do not get that sick very often but boy did I have the flu. Which was following by a cold. I'm still battling the cold but seem to be feeling a little better!!
    But in better news I did manage to pull a 4.0 GPA for school!!! I was never that good in school before so it makes such a big difference when you actually know what you want to do for a living!
Also I have been nominated for a Liebster Award several times and have not gotten to complete it so to everyone that have nominated me in the past Thank you!! I was most recently nominated by Fashion with Danny so I will complete that one!

Random Facts about Me

I am always planning post throughout my day and today I thought I would do RANDOM facts

1)Twister was my favorite movie when I was a kid, and I wanted to be a meteorologist because of it. But that never happened, I'm going to be a Interior Designer instead...
2)I am the oldest of three but was such a loner as a child, I would much rather play by myself than with others. I'm still this way. I always need my space.
3)My biggest pet peeve is people who spell the store "Anthropologie" "Anthropology" the later one is the study of humanity, the first is the store, do not say it is your favorite store that then spell it wrong! 
4) My favorite all time snack is nutella and pretzels...mmm, have it almost every night!
5) I am such an anxious person, especially when I pull up to a stop sign.
6) Favorite show growing up Buffy the Vampire Slayer, favorite show right now the Walking Dead...ya think I like scifi?
7) I have sporadic obsessions currently its J Crew
8) I was born on All Saints Day, hence the blog name :)
9) Being from Southern Illinois  you would think I have at least held a gun.....nope.
10) I put lip gloss on every time I get in my car
