stylish seven things

Okay, so I finally have some time to do this whole seven things thing!!

I was so happy when I looked at Kai's blog and saw that she gave me the Stylish Blogger Award!!  I love reading her blog and so I was beyond honored when she felt inspired by me too! :)

So thank you so much, Kai! I saw these things going around the blog world, and I thought if I had to pick seven blogs yours would definitely be one of them! But you beat me to it <3

The rules:
-Thank the person who gave you the award.
-Name 7 facts about yourself.
-Give the award to seven stylish bloggers, and comment them letting them know!

One.  I've participated in a ton of hobbies, but I never really got good at any of them.  I did soccer when I was five.  I did gymnastics after that until I was nine and I was pretty good at it for my age!  But I quit before it was time to learn how to backflip and use both of the uneven bars (top and bottom).  I did dance (modern, tap, ballet, hip hop, everything) for many years after that.  Once junior high hit, I went to a school where we did ballet every afternoon.  By freshman year of high school, I was burned out.  Then I did basketball one summer.  Tae Kwon Do for two years, but I quit two months before I was going to test for my black belt. And soccer for Junior year of high school.  I've played a variety of instruments but never got amazing at one.  Piano, violin, flute, clarinet, and the one I miss the most: drums. 
Two. I'm a little obsessed with  I don't get "star struck" when I see or talk to celebrities, but is definitely a guilty pleasure of mine.  It's kind of how I keep up on my news, though.  Even though it's mostly about celebrities, sometimes I'll learn things about the real news too.  It's getting to be less of a secret, unfortunately.  Now when I talk about facts (or rumors) I've heard, all my friends say, "Did you learn that from Perez?" And of course I say yes.  It's something about those drawn on pictures that get me every time.
Three.  My room looks like a garage.  No, it really does.  I have a hub cap, magnetic dart board, santa hat, 6 baseball caps, one weird hawaiian/beach straw hat, black bandanas, and red clocks that don't work all over my walls.  Oh, and that street sign that Dad and I smuggled from an airport in Hawaii.  And don't forget the painted hand drum from South Africa.  I also have a fridge in here.  No, there's no food in it.  It's where I keep my beach towel and hang my clothes that have broken straps.
Four.  I am obsessed with Italy.  I've posted about it before and talk about it all the time, but I love Italy.  I love the language, the people, and especially the boys.  I have a weakness for Italians.  There, I said it.  If I already like a boy, my like grows so much more when I find out he's Italian.  Maybe it's the love for good food?  Or the tall, dark, and handsome aspect? Or that my first kiss was with an Italian boy on vacation from Rome when I worked as a pool girl at a hotel during high school.  It's mostly the last one <3 
River Ranch days...
Yes, I realize I was a little old when I had my first kiss.
Five.  I wish I was an artist.  My great uncle was an artist.  My mom was pretty good herself.  I've always wanted to do something artistic.  I draw when I feel sad. My most recent art is spray painting.  Not like grafitti, but those space type paintings, but I wouldn't do space.  Just search "spray paint art" on youtube.  It's pretty incredible.  I bought about $60 dollars worth of spray paint about 3 months ago.  I haven't touched them.  First, my excuse was that it's too hot outside.  Now it's too cold...and I don't want to get my fingers frozen, or the other option, my gloves all discolored.

Six.  I'm horrible at dressing myself.  Kelcy and Paige can attest to this one.  I'll come out of my room thinking I look so hot and good, and they're like, "Brooke, are you joking?"  Then I get shy and sad, and they have to help me pick out a new outfit.  I guess it's a good thing that I'm experimental with fashion, but I fear for the day I don't live with them.  I might end up walking out of the house looking like the picture below.  It was my favorite fancy outfit. And I wore it at least three times to important events.
[I can't find the picture, but I think it's better that way hahaha]

Seven.  I've never had a real boyfriend.  I've been a "girlfriend" twice, one for two weeks and the other for a month.  It'll be surreal when it happens, but right now I'm happy being single and happy.  I figure it's not worth it to waste "exclusive" time with someone who's not amazing.  After all, you don't want to be taken when that special someone comes along.  I'm still learning my lessons, but I think I'm getting smarter every time about who I choose to spend my time with.  Keep looking at my blog for quotes that have to do with this, you'll see them a lot.  

And now the seven blogs that I'm passing this award on to!  Congratulations, girls (and boy) :)  And if you've already done it, then I guess you don't have to do it again, but just know that you're blog is loved <3
