a honeycrisp a day

Before Sunday, I was a honeycrisp virgin.

Sunday changed my life.

Yes, they really are as amazing as everyone says they are. And my goodness, they're HUGE!

You guys HAVE to try these. I think they're my new favorite food.
Too bad my local orchard only has them one week a year! :(

I got a fabulous award from Ruxandra!

This is one of my favorite awards I've ever received! It's so artsy and awesome. Here are my ten facts that I'm supposed to list:
1) I don't text all that often, at least for a teenage girl. I certainly could live without my phone.
2) I love volunteering, but for some reason I don't do it as much as I should. I guess I just don't make time.
3) I never ever eat fried food of any sort (french fries, fried chicken, etc), mostly because my mom just never makes it.
4) My iPod only has about 900 songs on it.
5) I absolutely love the song "We Are The World" because it was the first time I was introduced to Michael Jackson and Cyndi Lauper, two artists I now love.
6) I miss the days of polaroids. I still have my camera -- but no film is sold anymore :(
7) I love politics, but I try not to talk about it with most people because I've found that conflicting opinions often get in the way of great friendships.
8) I rarely go to the movie theater. Three times in a good year.
9) I've always wanted a summer job, but every year I procrastinate applying...until it's too late.
10) I'm a little scared to grow up, but at the same time I'm so unbelievably excited. It's going to be an exhilarating ride ;)

I'll pass this award on to diary of a young designer and thepelicanandme!

Nick said...

That apple looks great. I have some things in common with you. I also like to volunteer, politics are my favorite topic to discuss (although I like to purposely start arguments. I'm waaayyy too opinionated), and I also worry about growing up

SUGAR said...

YEp, tI´m getting my wisdom teeth one at a time because, apparently they´re really pushed back in the bone, and it´s difficult to get them out :(

Andie said...

Oh and I linked you dear, love your blog :D

Sara said...

Wow, when I read about you not going to movie theaters very often, my first thought was, "oh, that's sort of weird." but then I realized I'm exactly the same way! The only thing that I've seen in theaters this year is Harry Potter, haha.

Those are amazing apples! I'm going to have to find a way to try them-I'm definitely in the wrong part of the country for them :/

Girl With The Bow Tie said...

SO WE ARE RIDICULOUSLY ALIKE. I was like "YES, yes. YES. YES." the entire time. I can't even remember all the points I share with you. Ex. I don't have a phone because I don't think I'll use it, I love to volunteer, but don't do it enough, I'm excited and scared to grow up etc. etc. And I love apples, so I'm kind of envious! haha

Thanks so much for stopping by!

CC said...

Hello, gorgeous! You certainly deserve the award. :)
I miss the days of Polaroids too. There is something about the old-school way of clicking a picture and having the photo with you in a second. And its so much more fun than digital cameras.


Fashion Pix said...

Wow those apples are huge!!

ONiC said...

and i could live without my phone too!

Bella said...

Diary of a Young Designer said...

Wow! Incredible apple. Congrats on the award darling,and thanks for passing it down to me. =)

It's sweet how we have things in common. I don't have fried foods either and rarely go to the moves and I don't text as much as the average person does.


Raigan said...

Oh my gosh those apples look yummy! I almost bought some today but i wasn't so sure but now I'm convinced!

And as for the whole polaroid thing, that annoys me too! I feel like polaroids are kind of coming back....maybe we should make a petion for them to make the film again!!!


Annie said...

I miss the days of Polaroids too. And I could definitely live without my phone... it's definitely odd, being a teenage girl and not having the constant impulse to text!

amoramor said...

Erika said...

Those apples instantly remind me of fall and orchards and apple picking and the changing colors of leaves. Plus, who can resist a food with the name like Honeycrisp?

Conratulations on the award! :)

Louie in Wonderland said...

Gosh, that's one big apple jajajaja. I love politics too but I understand your point, I'm lucky to have friends that share my ideology. Before I didn't.
Sincerely Louie, Ciao! :)
