AND last but not least....

A blog award from Kathleen at just a small town girl - YAY! Her blog is one of my new favorites.

She tagged me with "7 things I love".

My 7:

1. Chocolate! How can anyone resist?

2. Being active. Whether it's the traditional gym workout, yoga or running on the boardwalk, staying active and fit is so important to me. Best workout advice I've ever heard is from a kickboxing instructor who said "if you don't squeeze your bootie, no one else will!"

Plus, working out helps relieve stress and puts you in a great mood.

3. Farmers Market. I love going to the one on Main Street in Santa Monica. Great organic food, unique crafts and beautiful flowers.

4. Traveling. I love seeing the world and visiting different cities, countries and cultures. Also, what's better than a relaxing stress free vacay!

5. Yummy cute cafes. I love going to lunch with my girlfriends, sister or bf. My favorite is Veggie Grill. This is the best vegetarian restaurant hands down. Even non-veg people love it.

6. California: the sunshine, the beach, the palm trees, summer dresses, flip flops, the laid back lifestyle.

7. Family and friends.

I'm lucky enough to have a sister who is my best friend too. That's me at 1 1/2 years old reaching to take a peak of my new sister!

Ooh, can I add an eighth? I'm such a rebel (haha).
8. Lounging on Sunday morning with a frothy soy latte and perusing my favorite blogs and etsy sites. I just love looking at all the gorgeous and cool finds from the blogger world and all the fabulous art on etsy.
