Random Me

So, yesterday morning Ms. Alyssa over at Butterflies on Mars nominated me for this awesome little award here. Thanks a ton lady. Also, if you haven't gone to check out her site what are you waiting for? She has a really cool style and amazing personality.

Instructions are to:
  • Nominate some other new bloggers
  • Let them know you have nominated them
  • Share 7 random facts about yourself
  • Thank the blogger who has nominated you
  • Add the Versatile Blogger Award to your post

The bloggers I nominate are:


  • I love the color purple. It's pretty much the most amazing color in the rainbow and if I could wear purple everyday I probably would. I mean I guess I could.. but then you would think I was loony. It's been my unwavering fave since the age of 5. I remember it being my favorite that long ago. Weird.
  • I was born in Paraguay and my whole extended family still lives there. Many of you will probably have to bust out an atlas, I hope some of you still own one, to find it. It's in the middle of South America, saved ya the trouble. I'll do a whole blog post about it at some point. The culture is still a very big part of me and my life. I visited every summer until Pia was born. Darn children.. haha.
  • This is a random one for sure, I have really bad depth perception. No, truly horrible. I can never tell, in a car, how far away I am from another car and it often takes me wayyy too long to back out of a spot. Also this affects every other part of my life, the car one is just the most annoying!
  • At the ages of 15-18 I wore only Disney t-shirts with everything. That was really my wardrobe. I still have some that my kids are now fitting into or my little brother has used. They were in all different colors and characters, I didn't discriminate. 
  • I am a chocolate FIEND. It's pretty obnoxious how much I love chocolate. I have to have a piece of chocolate at least once a day. I crave it like a drug. Well that was weird to write but oh, so very true. 
  • I cannot keep a plant alive to save my life. Even cacti come to die at my house. You didn't think that was possible? Come over and I'll show you. I think it's because I just forget to water them.. but sometimes it's also because I overdo it. Hopefully someday soon I'll get to grow some beautiful plant and feel accomplished!
  • I love vinyl. I've been obsessed with the 40s-50s since I can remember. I have a small record collection that keeps on growing. The ones I have are from both new and old artists alike. I enjoy lounging on my bed and listening to some tunage to relax.

There ya go! Hope you enjoyed those.
Picking seven was pretty tough at first but then as I got inspired I couldn't stop.
I'll have to make some about me posts soon. :)

With all my love,



  1. Yay! I love learning more about you. I also love purple, one of my very favorites! Though I do tend to really get into lilac specifically. I would love to see a blog post about your native country, very cool. I've noticed that each plant is different and needs different waterings, but sunlight is key - not all plants thrive on it.

    1. :) Purple is THE besstttt. I've been thinking about a great first post to do on PY. There will be many. Plants= the enemy.

  2. It was fun to read these, Pati! :) Man oh man, I love chocolate too- the dark type, like as dark as you can get, haha. I love 85% cocoa :) I love vinyl too! I have a much smaller collection tho, and it's really neat that you are from Paraguay! I would love to hear more about Paraguay, too! Nice web design by the way, I really like what you did with your page.


    1. ummm I am also a DARK chocolate lover. I've gotten up to 70% when I'm just eating it straight from the wrapper. To cook I'll use the 85%. I don't like milk chocolate at all really.. It's wayyyy too sweet now.
      As much as I would love that to be my vinyl collection.. it sadly isn't. I have around 50 records right now.
      PY post coming soon. Promise!
      Your tips helped. I've been watching a lot of tutorials. I'm happier. Not quite there yet but way happier. I was rearranging things again when you posted the comment. Hope it didn't throw you off :)

  3. Thanks Lady!
    The blog is coming together nicely :)
    Purple really suits you when you wear it as well! oh man...I'm totally one of those people who's not a big straight up chocolate fan, I LOVE anything chocolate flavored, or any type of chocolate candy bar, or even just chocolate with nuts in it, but just plain chocolate by would have to be some damn good MILK chocolate!
    Can't wait to hear about PY!

    1. You're very welcome!
      Chocolate is just a girl's best friend in my eyes. I'm also very obsessed with brownies. The gooey, chewy type not the cakey type. :)

  4. I can totally relate to the chocolate point...

    Have a fantastic weekend,

  5. Oh my goodness I love your blog! Thanks so much for nominating me!

  6. I have bad depth perception too!!!! So weird! I blame mine on not getting much needed glasses until I was like 12. I was so nearsighted and I don't think my eyesight developed correctly because of it. That is so strange.

    1. also THANK YOU so much for nominating me!!! I'll be sure to do a post soon! <3 <3 <3

    2. Your blog deserves awards. I get so excited whenever I see a post of yours pops up. You're so honest and you write so well!
      Also.. since I first found your blog I thought we would have a lot in common.. weird that you also have bad depth perception. lol. It's so annoying! The boy makes fun of me for it all the damn time.

  7. Thanks for stopping by my blog! You seem like a lady I would totally hang out with. You love chocolate, you post about low carb nachos, all things I'm into! haha
    I also have really terrible depth perception, no one I know seems to quite understand it. It's most often a problem while driving/parking, so I totally understand how you feel.
    Looking forward to your posts!

    1. I feel the same way about hanging out! You seem super cool.
      You cannot even begin to understand how happy I am that I'm not the only one with the depth perception problem. NO ONE gets it! Yay! I"m not alone.


Thank you so much for commenting! It totally makes my day a little better when you do!
