Over the Top

Bren from Chasing Beauty gave me the Over the Top award last week and I'm so incredibly thankful and appreciative! She's a makeup artist and her blog is full of fascinating product and makeup tips, beautiful pictures, and stories about working at her dream job! Check out her blog when you have a chance, you'll love it!
8x8 Game:
The lovely Life as a California Wife tagged me for the 8x8 game on Monday!
Here are the rules:
1]. Go to your photos files and select the 8th photo folder.
2]. Select the 8th photo in that folder.
3]. Post that photo along with the story behind it.

When Gabe and I were first dating, he would photo shop our heads into funny pictures like this and e-mail them to me with a little story about the picture. I can't remember what the story behind this one was, but I'm assuming it had something to do with a dream he had. He did this every day for at least a year and always seemed to impress me with his creative stories and photo shop skills. The time, effort, and attention to detail he used in order to make me laugh are just a few of the many reasons I was hooked.

I'd like to pass this award and the 8x8 game to the following amazing bloggers whose posts and comments always make me smile. Visit their fabulous blogs and I know they'll make you smile too.
