Let's Celebrate in Style!

TODAY, MLK, Jr. Day, marks the one-year anniversary of my blog! So, I am celebrating in STYLE – by accepting a new blog award, The Stylish Blogger Award!

Thank you goes to Anna Walker from Acquainted with the Night for this lovely award.

You know, with these awards comes RULES. I must share seven facts about myself. How about I share seven facts about my own personal STYLE? Sounds appropriate.

Secrets of Kristy’s Style

1. A bra is only required in the work place.

2. A wine or cocktail glass makes for a great accessory.

3. Washing of the hair on an everyday basis is blasphemous.

4. Sometimes, the most fun you can have with an outfit is with jazzy, colorful socks!

5. Thank God for ponytails.

6. Ironing is NOT necessary.

7. One can NEVER have too many “lounging” pants.

To share the love and pay it forward, I must give this award to 15 others. In gratitude for an exciting year of blogging, I will give this award to the last 15 people who have commented on my posts! Because, obviously, if they have commented here, then they too, know what style is.

Thank you for sharing this journey with me in blog land! I will continue to live for entertaining you and making you all laugh. I love it!

By the way, I always try to follow back when people follow me. Sometimes, I cannot find the web page of a person who has followed me. If you have followed me, but I have not followed you, please leave a comment letting me know how I can find you! Thanks!

Congratulations on our award! You deserve it :)
And I totally agree - ironing IS NOT necessary.

Shell said...

I love your list. And pretty much live by it!

Kimberley said...

Congratulations on your award! And I am so with you on #4, I don't even think I own a pair of white socks! lol

Not Just Another Jennifer said...

Woot! Thanks! BTW, I may just have to steal your list - we are clearly destined for blogger buddydom. Seriously, every single one of them is applicable to me!

Reagan said...

Thanks for the award! I'm all about #5. Ponytails are a classy up do here!

Glen said...

congrats on both the anniversary of your blog and the much deserved award.

personally I've never really felt that bras are all that important in the work place either

Carri said...

Congrats on the award and thank you for passing it on to Adventures in Mommyhood!
Ok, seriously... wine/cocktail is a great accessory!! Goes with every color.
Now I need to wait until five to fill my glass up (What do you think I am? A drunk?!) and check out all the other blogs on your list!

blueviolet said...

I couldn't agree with you more that ironing is just not necessary! Congrats on your award!

I agree on the "Thank God for ponytails" bit. I loathe (okay, maybe not LOATHE, but definitely envy) the girls that can walk around with wet hair and it dries perfectly. Grrr. They don't know how lucky they have it.

Happy Blog-o-versary! It's been fabulous following you. :) (Sounds creepy when you don't know what I'm talking about, doesn't it? Thankfully, you DO know what I'm talking about. Then that would've just been really awkward.)

Love it... my home uniform is a pair of black lounge pants and a pink fleece top!

Leighann said...

congratulations on your award and thank you for presenting one to me! I am overjoyed!! I love reading your blog and look forward to many more posts!

Clipped Wings said...

You are not one of my followers, but you do find my blog once in a while and leave a comment, which I always appreciate. Your list sounds like mine, except for the socks, so I definitely think it is a great post, lol. I don't always comment, but I do read all your posts. Your stories are quite good.

Annette said...

Congratulations on your award and your one year blog anniversary. How exciting! I can't wait to check out the other blogs on your list...If they're are anything like you, then they must have a great sense of humor. Enjoy in style!

Ratz said...

Well... you totally deserve the award. And Happy Blog Anniversary too :-D

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

Happy blogiversary!

Melissa said...

Thanks so much for the award! Just posted my acceptance. :)

Love your list. I agree with all of them!

TV's Take said...

Congrats on your year anniversary and your award! You have a great blog and your posts are excellent. I too think ironing is totally overrated. A little water works wonders on a wrinkle. Happy 1 year annivesary

Katie Gates said...

Congrats on your blog-o-versary. As for your style secrets, what... did you read my diary or something??? Actually, I'd replace jazzy, colorful socks with flip flops, and instead of ponytails, I'd say "Thank God for hairclips," but aside from that, hell, we're twins! (I'm actually drinking from a cobalt-trimmed wineglass right now, if you can believe it.) Cheers!

To be honest, I haven't ironed a day in my life!

Lisha @ DeLovely Life said...

Ahhhh, you and I should be friends. Ironing...I don't even remember the last time I used an iron. And my hair totally looks even more beautiful (ie. wild and kinda kinked) if I don't wash it every day. I'm sure it prefers that. Sweats..that's pretty much my uniform. Goodness, I think I need help. :) Love your list, you Stylish lady, you.

Happy blogoversary! And I agree- bras have no place if you don't have to wear one!

Life with Kaishon said...

I love your rules! Just perfect! : ) I agree about the lounging pants! Bring them on. I can't get enough!

TornadoTwos said...

Happy blog anniversary! I love your list, it's awesome. Lounging pants are my fave, they make them so cute now I almost could leave the house in them. Almost.

Ca88andra said...

Thanks for the award! I'm feeling very humble now. And might I just add - I love your style!!!

Mommyfriend Lori said...
