Awards and ......

My little blog just passed a milestone. Guess what?? You are reading my 100th Post! I know that doesn't sound like a whole lot, but it's more than I expected when I started blogging. Three years of blogging and learned a lot in this venture. I follow 120 blogger/blogs around the world, so inspiring and lot of innovative, creative ideas.

My decorating, creativity skills, my blog as such have flourished in the last three years. When I started this blog I was a dummy in photography and blogging has nourished my photography skills. I love the learning experience!

I would like to thank Shruthi of Mindful meanderings and Patricia of Colours Dekor for awarding me the Versatile and Stylish Blogger awards. It is so sweet of you to think of me. Sorry it took so long to write this post.

Now the rules:
  1. Thank the person who awarded you and link back to them in your post
  2. Share 7 Random facts about yourself
  3. Pass the award
7 Random facts about me
  1. I'm totally obsessed of recycling and reuse projects. No recyclable trash goes out of the home without my approval.
  2. I want to be organized but always find some thing to be organized. I try to organize the clutter once in a month.
  3. Smell of fresh laundry, walking on the beach, riding a bi-cycle, cool breeze blowing on the face, warm smell of drizzle ... are my favourites.
  4. From school to college ... until now, I love making to-do lists. I may miss schedules, lag schedules but I need a to-do list.
  5. Simple sambar rice with crunchy papads that my mom feeds by hand, tastes so delicious in the whole world. But still, at times, my taste buds likes the dinner in a less crowded restaurant, especially a roof-top, with a good ambiance and some mild music that all start with a sweet-corn soup.
  6. I treasure my "me" time. From childhood, I love being left alone for sometime. May be an hour or hours, It's mine:-)
  7. I do weekly menu plan on Sunday. Every Sunday night, I sit down and make a list of vegetables in the fridge. Then I plan the recipes in such a way that the week is nutritionally and colorfully (vegetables) balanced. I started doing Menu plan after reading the menu planning guidelines at the organize junkie blog.
