Who doesn’t like being recognized for doing something great? Not this gal. I am a Leo and that might have a little something to do with my *all eyes on me, all eyes on me* complex. Just a little.

But I got an awesome blog award yesterday from Katrina Lantz.

Ain’t it purty?

The original blog-badge-maker-person (wouldn’t it be awesome if he/she really had that title like on a big gigantic badge on their chest? heh.), assigned these rules for accepting the award:

1) Thank and link back to the person who gave you this award. (Did it above! Thanks again!)
2) Share 7 things about yourself. (Below)
3) Pass the award along to 15 bloggers who you think are fantastic for whatever reason! (In no particular order…)
4) Contact the bloggers you’ve picked and let them know about the award.

7 things about me:

1-I can’t watch horror movies. Just. Can’t. I get too scared and can’t sleep with the lights off for weeks after.

2-I sleep with a 6 inch serrated boot knife tucked under my pillow…just in case.

3-I have a thing for new cars–I’ve had loads of them. Oh, and fast cars. They’re like magnets too.

4-Through 18 years of school I only missed one homework assignment and it was in the third grade. I wish I was joking.

5-I sometimes ghost write words on my lap when I watch movies. OCD much?

6-I’m *slightly* addicted to Starbucks.

7-I prefer oceans to mountains but need both each summer and winter to balance me out.

Alrighty, there’s my seven! As for the other rules…there are nine blogs on my sidebar that I stalk–I mean follow–religiously. Take a look at those for starters. Here’s a few more writers/authors/amazing ladies to bump the tally up to fifteen:

1-Katrina Lantz (Thanks again and again!)
2-Adventures in Writing: Isabella
3-Casey McCormick (She’s a well of knowledge-check her out)
4-The Story Siren
5-Natalie Whipple
6-Stephanie Perkins

Enough blogging awards and blog-surfing shenanigans. I’m off to edit more and clean less. Ah, the life…

  1. So cool! Good idea about just referencing the blogs you follow religiously! I should have thought of that, as those are the people I listed first anyway. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the picture at the top of your page, and your fun blogging voice. Thanks for the shout out. 😀

  2. I did the same thing at first. One through nine were the same as my sidebar. When I started to link them I remembered I already had…I got creative. Or lazy. *grinAnd thanks! I love the pic at the top too. I have Lisa Sanchez from Confessions of a California Cheer Mom to thank so I'll pass along the compliment!
