thanks and awards



these wonderful illustrations were made by peperontie

look at these drawings! i can't tell you how much it brightened my day to see these on her blog this morning.  girl's got some serious talent up her sleeve and i'm so honored that she picked a few of my outfit pictures as inspiration.  thank you friend!  and then today i found the most perfect 1950s black velvet taffeta birthday dress.  my birthday is on saturday! i will be twenty-five so i guess i'm kind of old now.  but its okay i'm looking forward to the second half of my twenties.  the first half left a lot to be desired.  i'm not doing much in the way of celebrating but next monday leonard and i are off to long island for the entire week!   we get to celebrate my birthday, valentines day, and his birthday all at once.  i have only been in love 3 times and they were all aquarius dudes born within the first two weeks of february.  sometimes i kind of believe in astrology.  i received The Beautiful Blog Award from Lo and the Creative Blogger Award from Lisa.

the rules are to post seven things about myself and then pass on to seven other bloggers. here goes.

  • i collect typewriters.
  • i'm too scared to check my credit report.
  • i'm a steak and potatoes kind of girl.
  • the only time i miss ballet is when i see real life ballerinas on the street.
  • my mum was the first ever woman in the state of south carolina to become a lawyer and a doctor.
  • both my parents have their pilot's license and i used to go flying with them when i was little.
  • i get scared of ghosts sometimes at night.

Those cartoons are absolutely wonderful! I'm going to check out her blog..! Happy early birthday! And p.s... I get scared of ghosts at night too.. and people trying to break in. That's why I make my boyfriend sleep over, or at least stay until I fall asleep, whenever I can.

sarah said...

wow, thanks kennedy! i will definitely be doing this.

as for your seven things:
your parents are pretty impressive people! i am exactly the same way with no. 2, it's becoming a pretty dangerous habit. and steak is the reason i could never be a vegetarian.

Lol- you are going to recieve another award! I've nominated you for the Best Blog Award; you can check it out on my blog! :)

These drawings are so wonderful!

I took ballet up until the ripe old age of 6 when I decided I was sick of prancing to "If All the Raindrops". Now I kind of regret it and feel mysteriously drawn to ballet-type clothes featuring pastels and tulle.

I turn 28 this year...scary.

happy pre-birthday! I went to the store that I got those flowered leggings from that you commented on my blog a while ago(my first entry!) and i tried to see if they still had them because i wanted to buy them for you - then send them..but, no such luck. I love these drawings and I loved the random facts about you. You have alot more to you than meets the eye, miss kennedy. You are very intriguing.

fashionforwriters said...

Happy early birthday! Your mom sounds rad, and I didn't know you used to do ballet--I had to go to a very strange ballet school instead of regular school on Wednesdays because I had freakishly flexible arm and legs, but as it turned out, awful coordination and overall grace.

Remember that time we were sitting in your living room in Allston and the door was closed and the ghost started shaking it for like two minutes and then you just insisted that we pretend it did not happen? That was prettttttttttty funny.
