Award Date: July 13, 2012; July 25, 2012
Acceptance Date: July 13, 2012; July 29, 2012

Wow! Another wonderful award has been given to me :) This time the honor has been bestowed up me by Becky over at Just Passing Through! I just love reading her blog and and honored that she thinks my little blog deserves this award!

The HBIC over at My Life Stuck In The South has also bestowed this wonderful gift upon me!! I am truly grateful that others think my work is work reading :) I can only hope to keep writing stuff worthy of such great attention from other terrific bloggers!!

So, here are the rules that go along with this particular award:

  1.  Include award logo in a post or on your blog page.  Done right up above :)
  2.  Answer (10) questions about yourself.  See below...
  3.  Nominate 10-12 other fabulous bloggers.  I appear to be 2 blogs shy.....I will update ASAP :)
  4.  Link your nominees to the post and comment on their blog, letting them know about the award.
  5.  Share the love and link the person who nominated you.  Done :)
My Question/Responses about Me:
1. What would you most like to change about yourself?
 Hmmm...I used to think that there were several things that I wanted to change or needed to change about myself. This last year, however, has made me realize (with lots of help from my wonderful best friend and lover) that I like who I am. Even the "bad" things :)

2. What's your theme song?

LoL Funny thing about this particular question is that my best girlfriend recently told me that Wonderland by Natasha Kills is my theme song!! I love this song and so (at least for now) this would be it!

3. One part of your life, a memory, action, etc. that you wish you could surgically remove from your brain?
Tough call. However, I would have to say that I have one particular memory of a traumatic experience I once had that still plagues me to this day, that I would love to have erased. I'm sure my sex life (and my honey--despite being 100% understanding and supportive) would appreciate it... :/
4.  What generation do you wish you had been a part of?

I was born on the ass-end of the 80s. Growing up in the 90s I have to say that the 80s would have been a blast for me!! My style of dress, music and mannerisms growing up strongly reflected having a mom who was a teenager in the 80s (yes my mom was a teen-mom). I also would have loved to live during the 60s as well as during the Ancient Egyptian times of the Pharaohs.

5. What was your favorite childhood toy?

I used to have a stuffed animal that was given to me by my late grandfather on the day that I was born. It had been his when he was a boy. It was a worn but loved puppy dog whom I simply called Puppy :) I loved that thing more than anything else and it had to be repaired so many times....I only lost it in the move from Texas to Oregon when I was 15.

6. What is your favorite house cleaning chore?

Hands down I love to sweep, vacuum and do the laundry. I have a weird method to doing the laundry and I get very agitated if it is done wrong LoL
7. Do you use Twitter?
Honestly, no. I do have an account but I don't really use it. I only got one awhile back because I needed it to enter a sweepstakes/contest thing (which I lost LoL). I have thought about trying to use it more but honestly don't see the point right now. It's not something I'm all that interested in.

8. Any goals?

Don't we all have goals? I have tons and tons of goals (though that probably goes with my head-strong, over-achieving, Aries personality)!! So I'll give just a few...

Short term:  Quit smoking (I know it's an awful habit and I've been working to quit). Get back into jogging (I love to run but the smoking makes it rather difficult to enjoy). Start eating healthier. Remember to take my vitamins everyday.

Long term: Get married. Have kids of my own. Publish my poetry. Finish my novella and my novel. Work on my blogs more (I do have two!!)

9. Do you really drink margaritas all the time?

Oh how I wish I could!! I love margaritas but neither my honey nor myself are big drinkers (not that we haven't had our wild days before LoL). We are both hypoglycemic and the sugar content in most liquors just screws with us too bad :( It seems the older we get the worse it gets.....

10. What is the ugliest car you've ever driven and were embarrassed to be seen in?

This is an easy question for me. I don't drive. That trips people out usually but I don't like to. Not a tiny bit at all. My anxiety levels don't allow for me to do it without being on the verge of a panic attack the whole time (though I am working through it and getting better). I haven't owned an ugly car I was embarrassed to be seen in before (and I can't remember all the ones I've ridden in over the years LoL).

Wondering whom I've chosen to pass this along to??? Check it out below:

1. Jen over at People I Want to Punch in the Throat (PIWTPITT). This woman is hilarious!!! While I didn't find her because of her more famous "Elf on the Shelf" post, her writing inspired me to start a blog of my own and here I am :)

2. Lily who is over at The Incoherent Ramblings of a Moose. She is a terrific read!! I love the sense of humor found over on her blog so go check it out!!

3. Punky Mama is another one of my absolute favorites to read!! It's great to see someone who is doing what's best for her boys without jumping all over the pharmaceutical bandwagon. You can get to know her and her family over at her blog so, go!! :)

4. Cheryl over at Crap That Bugs Me! is a terrific blogger that I really enjoy reading!! I suggest hopping on over there ASAP!! You probably won't be disappointed (unless you have no sense of humor LoL).
5.  A terrific mommy-blog to read is You Know It Happens At Your House Too! I love to see what she has to say over there. She's not afraid to speak her mind (and currently has a great giveaway going--only 5 days left!!) and that's what drew me in :)

6. Nicole over at Ninja Mom is another great blogger that I recommend checking out if you haven't already done so!! She is hilarious and as someone who loves to laugh, I can't help but check out her page as often as I can. I have to say, too, that her Character Assassination Carousel idea is genius and someday I hope to be privileged to participate (I should get off my bum and ask her already!! LoL). If you haven't heard about this and/or read any of the Assassinations, there are all linked to the above mentioned idea. Go read them. They are terrific!!

7. The HBIC over at My Life Stuck in the South is another blog I enjoy. I seem to be able to relate to many of her postings (though mine would be, "My Life Stuck in the North" LoL). She is great and I suggest giving her a read. **You will be prompted that her blog contains adult content, just so you are warned**

8. While you are over checking out Jen at PIWTPITT, you'll probably see a tab to read "The Hubs". Here, I am presenting "The Hubs" his very own award on his blog, Angrivated. I love coming here for a laugh!! Check it out!!

9. Southern Belle Mama (added 7/28/12) is another terrific blogger I'd love to pass this lovely award to :)



Award Date: July 5, 2012
Acceptance Date: July 12, 2012
(With the end of one job and the start of another I accepted this a bit late but was super excited!!)

I was very surprised to see that I had won an award!! I am very thankful to know that there is someone else out there that likes to hear what I have to say to the world, enough so to award my small blog with such an honor :) This wonderful award was given to me by Cheryl over at Crap That Bugs Me! (another wonderful little blog that I insist you check out once you get the chance to do so!!) and I appreciate it very much, so thanks a billion!!!

I've come to realize (even though this IS my first award) that there are some rules to be followed when you are bestowed such an honor. So, here they are:

  1. Choose 5 up and coming blogs to pass the Liebster Award on to. The blogs must each have less than 200 followers.  I don't have many blogger friends yet but I will pass this along as I add more to my list. I will update the list as necessary :)
  2. Show your thanks and appreciation to the blogger that gave you the award by linking back to them. Thanks so much again to Cheryl  for this wonderful award :) 
  3. Share 5 random facts about yourself.
    1. I am terrified of circus clowns. Most people find this odd since I love ICP (Insane Clown Posse for all those who aren't down :D) but I had a traumatic experience in kindergarten with one and WILL have a MAJOR panic attack if confronted with a real circus clown.
    2.  I have a half sister in the second grade whom I've never met :(
    3. Most people think that my favorite animal is cats since I have tons of figurines of them, but the truth is that I adore penguins and peacocks!!
    4.  Despite penguins and peacocks being my favorite animals, I really hate birds as a whole. I find them disgusting and extremely creepy!!
    5. I am a cranky bitch in the mornings. I never have been and never will be a morning person LoL 
  4. Post the award to your blog. Done :)
The wonderful blogs I've chosen to award the Liebster Blog honor to:
  1. The Incoherent Ramblings Of A Moose --I just love reading the posts over at this blog!! I always have a few laughs while I am here, so hop on over and check it out!! :)  
  2. My Life Stuck in the South --This is a newer blog that I just love to read. It's real and that's what I love about it. **There is a adult content warning, just as a heads up (it is for language I do believe)** 
  3. Southern Belle Mama (added on 7/28/12) is a blog I just started reading but definitely worthy of this lovely award! I hope she will accept it :)
