2 in One day?!?

 boots - ebay, dress & bracelets - ragz dressware, necklace - gift, sunnies - crush, ring - f21

I bought this great little dress over the weekend, so very comfortable and really easy to wear (minus the fact that you have to wear a strapless bra!).  We decided that since it was one of our last weekends off for who knows how long that we would go to the Del Mar Races, I went for my first time last year and it was a blast.  This dress was the perfect go to outfit for a day at the races until we got there and the Hubby noticed that it is kinda falling apart! Booo!  Now I just hope I can return it and get another; I have NO sewing skills to just fix it myself:(.

Now on to the exciting news!!  Yesterday I got 2 awards from fellow bloggers!!  I am not going to lie, I had no idea these kind of things were going on in the blogger world so when I got 2 of them you can only imagine how excited it was!!  I was going to try and answer them both in one posting and then figured that would just be way too much.  So the first one I received which is the "One Lovely Blog Award" was from Katya from this time is a charm, she is such a sweetie and has a great sense of style, please take a minute to check out her blog.

Ok, now I am supposed to tell you 7 things about me and then pass the award onto up to 15 other wonderful ladies and let them know I have done so ..... so here it goes.

#1   I am a Canadian, I have been living in San Diego now for almost 3 years (WOW, time flies!!)

#2   I love country music, yes, I know .... most people would not admit to that but I love it that much!!

#3   I met the love of my life when I was on vacation in Puerto Vallarta in April of 2008 and married 
       him 8 months later!! For Real!!
#4   I love candy, I wish I didn't but I just can't help myself!!

#5   I was born on my Dad's 18th birthday

#6   I come from a large family, when growing up my parents were foster parents, always lots of
       teenage girls, never a dull moment in out house!  I have 2 blood siblings, one half brother, 4 step
