Oh So Stylish!

I got special news! I was given an award by the beautiful and talented Emily Day from Daily Eday
Me? A Stylish Blogger? Who would've thunk?

Yay! I am so excited that someone would think of my blog as stylish, and fun to read! I am honored for the recognition from a fellow fabulous blogger! Thank you so much Emily!

So, there are a few rules to this Award:
- Thank the Person who gave you the award.
- Name 7 facts about yourself.
- Give the award to 7 Stylish Bloggers, and comment them letting   them know!
Here are the 7 random facts about myself. I always hate this game because I can never think of unique things about me. But I will try...

One. I have a puppy-radar built into my mind. No. Literally. No matter where I am, if there is a dog around I WILL find it! And then react with a screech of "puppy!", even if the dog is clearly 12 years-old. I have always loved dogs, and am a firm believer that there is no such thing as an ugly dog. Even though my Huds-buts(Hudson) is clearly the cutest dog in the world! Observe...
Two. I am a nerd. Growing up with brothers has made me the biggest nerd in the whole world. I get legitimately psyched when I see a new sci-fi or comic book movie coming out. Nick and I will literally have hours of conversations regarding DC vs. Marvel Comic Books. But, the good news is it takes a nerd to love a nerd, so I'm in luck!
Dark Night Premier. Imax. Oh yeah!
Three. I am kind of addicted to Musicals. I don't know what it is, but something about bursting into song and dance in the middle of an ordinary day just fills me with pure joy! I have never met a musical I didn't like, and I don't think I ever will. (Yes, I am a Gleek!) 
Four. I love all things lady-like, and have an extreme affinity for ANYTHING with a bow. I have a firm belief that this stems from my mother's need to put GINORMOUS bows in my hair every day when I was little. Whatever the reason, I am waiting for the day that is socially acceptable to wear a bow in my hair again.
Do you see a trend?
Five. I call my Mom every day. A day doesn't feel complete until I have a chat with my mommy. Even if we just chat about the little things we did that day, it feels good to know that my mom will always care. I don't think she really realizes how much I need her, and that is a shame because I need her more than anyone else in the world. Love you mom!
Six. Speaking of my mom, I get told by family and friends that I look exactly like my mom when she was in college. My mom and I aren't so convinced, but the question is still up for debate. My mom was beautiful and had fabulous style (thanks for NOT saving your clothes mom!) when she was my age, so it would be quite the honor! What do you think?
Seven. I have a very unique name. If I had a nickle for everyone asked me where my name came from, I would be rich. The truth is my mom's roommate was nicknamed Kai, and she liked it. And she wanted my brothers and I to have unique but short names (Shea, Bryn, & Kai). Actually Kai is Hawaiian for "Ocean", and Mercado(my last name) is Spanish for "Market". So my mom subconsciously named me "Ocean Market". Hi, I'm Ocean Market, nice to meet you!

So, there you have it! 7 random facts about me! I hope a few of you cared enough to read all of them. And then the last part of accepting this fabulous award is giving it to 7 fellow bloggers. And the winners are (In no particular order)....

Hey thanks for the award. I love the pictures of your mom, they're so fun. And I love that you talk to her everyday, I'm glad you have a such a good relationship with her!

Also, I LOVE PUPPIES too! My dog is about 6 years old now and I always call him my puppy! Although, he does still act like a puppy really.
