I Won an Award & It's My Birthday!!


Remember the People's Choice Blog Awards that Steph at Hey, Teenager of the Year was hosting? I was voted Best Reviewer! Thanks everyone-I think everyone on the list is an awesome blogger, so congrats to all the nominees and other winners. Be sure to check out the whole list on Steph's blog.
Today is my birthday! I'm heading out to see the Star Trek movie with my family-I've already seen it, but they haven't, so I'm excited to see it with them. Then we'll probably head back home and enjoy some cake, since you can't have a birthday without cake!
Since it's more fun to celebrate with others, I'll be hosting a contest soon, so stay tuned!! Happy start of summer everyone!:)
