A great big thank you to Beth and Kristy over at Design Chic for bestowing HH with the Versatile Blogger Award. What a great honor! I'm such a fan of Design Chic- whether they're featuring stylish bangles on their Fashionable Friday series or focusing on an emerging Interior Design firm in their In Good Taste Series, you will surely agree that this dynamic duo possess an incredible aesthetic and are truly Design Chic.

"The Versatile Blogger Rules"
-Worship at the feet of the person who nominated you and link back to their blog in your post.
-Share seven facts about yourself that only your BFF knows
-Pass the award on to 15 other bloggers.
-Contact your nominees and let them know you've tagged them.

Here goes:
 NYC nightmare-I was hit by a taxi while jay walking a few years ago-totally my fault. I was fine but my Tory Burch flats didn't make it.
 I'm a night owl-I can't imagine ever going to sleep before one am. You would think I would get a lot of work done during those twilight hours-not true.
 I can't live without freshly ground coffee in the morning.  It must be French dark roast-if I don't have it I'm an absolute bear. (probably because I'm up past one.)
I love to swim in the ocean. Give me a hot August day with gentle waves and I'm like a kid that has to be coaxed out of the water. I've even tried my hands at surfing with near disastrous results!
How high are we? I live on the 44th floor of a NYC high rise overlooking the East River. I was afraid of heights before we moved in and wouldn't go near the wrap around windows for weeks. Now I love seeing the city lights and helicopters whizzing by at night.
Youtube sensation? The kids taught our dog Dash to sing "I Love You" years ago, just like the now famous Husky dog on Youtube. I think Dash has better pitch but he gets stage fright so we've had to put his Youtube career on hold.

I'm passing this award on to some of my favorite bloggers. Be sure to check out their sites, I'm sure you will love them as much as I do!

Well deserved, Barbara! Nice to learn more about our blogging friends. I'm with you on the staying up late and the demand for coffee.
Have a nice day.

Ok you need to put Dash on here singing I love you. I've tried showing Dylan dog that youtube.com dog singing but all Dylan does is licked my monitor. Thank you so much for the award you're too kind!! I love learning more about you and 44th floor..I'm out I hate heights!

Oh, thank goodness you were o.k. RIP to the Tory flats. You shouldn't have shown me those.... now I want them in pink. I wear my silver ones all the time. Funny, our dachshund sings I love you too! It's a riot. Thanks for the mention... so sweet!! xo
