One Lovely Blog Award

Hey y'all,

I was so surprised this weekend to hear that Nina of The Proper Lady bestowed upon me the lovely blog award "One Lovely Blog." I love the advice on Nina's blog about everything from sports to sisterhood to pursuing guys all while maintaining the class and manners of a lady. As a girl that loved Jordan Christy's book How to Be a Hepburn in a Hilton World: The Art of Living with Style, Class and Grace, Nina's blog continues on a daily dose of modern etiquette for the current proper lady. As the second blog award since I started this little blog a mere two months ago I was surprised and honored with the title. THANK YOU NINA!

As always with a blog award there are a few rules of acceptance:

  • Thank the person who nominated you and link the blog back to them in your post.
  • Share 7 things about yourself
  • Nominate 15 or so bloggers you admire
  • Contact those chosen bloggers to let them know of their honor.
Let's get started:

7 Things About Jessica (or jDl)
1. I have never broken, sprained, or fractured a bone in my body!

2. I hate coffee. I only drink hot chocolate or tea when I go to a coffee shop. I did survive college without coffee and relied on soda instead. Now I am trying to break that habit and only drink water, tea, or juice.

3.I got my first cavity at 16 and was upset! I still haven't gotten one since.

4. I'm allergic to benzoyl peroxide (the powerful chemical in acne fighting). I break out in hives so no Proactiv for me.

5. My favorite food is beef stroganoff and not the kind from Hamburger Helper but the one my Momma makes. It is sooooo good!

6.I love to go grocery shopping. It's strange I know but I love going with a list, looking at all the products and planning on cooking/baking yummy food. It is great. Not a chore for me.

7. I have a mild obsession with scarves. I have at least 10 ranging from light summer ones to heavy ones for the winter. I have solid and patterned pashminas and they are nicely folded in a basket in my room.

Some Blogs I currently Fancy (in no particular order):

There are so many blogs I follow and I even have a daily reads tab on the top of my blog if you are searching for some more daily reads!

Peace and Blessings,


  1. I agree with so many of these! My husband is trying to get me into coffee, but I can only drink some of it before I let him have the rest! I also have wayyy too many scarves. And grocery shopping is the best :)

  2. Thanks so much for nominating me! I will post later today :) I've also never broken a bone & I love to grocery shop!! Love all the little pictures you included! :)

    1. Your welcome! YAY for never breaking a bone! :) And the power of google images makes blogging so much fun/easier.

  3. Thanks! Sorry to hear that you are allergic to that stuff!

    1. Your welcome! My Mom has it and as one of four kids to be the only one to get it I'm not surprised. I survive with salicylic acid instead.

  4. Thanks so much for nominating me! I'm allergic to benzoyl peroxide too! You're the only other person I've ever heard of who has that allergy. If I use it on my face my eyes swell up and get really itchy. Crazy!

    1. That is so crazy! My Mom has the same allergy and just calls it an irritation since her's isn't as severe but I also get red and itchy. I'm glad that I am not alone in the no benzoyl peroxide. It makes skin care shopping more difficult for sure.
      AND You are very welcome in the nomination!

  5. I know I'm super, super late, but thank you so much! My response post is coming soon. And this time I promise I won't wait almost another month. And in a totally unrelated note I can't agree with you more about the scarves. I've got a whole drawer full because they go with nearly everything!


Thanks for the sweet note!
