Being Awarded

I recently had two awards bestowed upon me by Bridget at Mama Belly Blog. What a sweetheart! The first one is

loveyaward ."These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."

The second one is


Honest Scrap award:A) First list 10 honest things about yourself - and make it interesting, even if you have to dig deep!B) Pass the award on to 7 bloggers that you feel embody the spirit of the Honest Scrap.


And here are my ten honest things:

  1. I’m a girl gamer and a nerd at heart. I enjoy MMORPG games, watching shows like Battlestar Galactica on television, and learning about SEO, social networking, and website development.
  2. Along the same lines as being a nerd, I get addicted to my gadgets. My new iPod goes with me everywhere including but not limited to restaurants, the car, and my bed.
  3. Sometimes I tell my kids that I’m working even when I’m not just to get some peace and quiet in my office.
  4. I get tired of defending why I was first a sahm and now why I’m a wahm. If I worked outside of the house, I’d probably have to defend why I neglect my kids, home, and husband. It’s really a no win kinda thing.
  5. I got my hair cut and colored the other day and I’m really not sure I like the color.
  6. I have chosen some truly lovely people to call friends. My only wish is that they lived in the same town or even state as me. (((Hugs)))
  7. I get insomnia and migraines when I’m stressed out.
  8. I honestly think that some of my online blogger friends and I would hit it off great in real life.
  9. No matter how much I clean it, my desk is always a mess and I have no one to blame but myself which sucks, lol.
  10. This was harder than I though it would be.

Now I must choose blogs to award. This is hard but not because I can’t think of anyone deserving but because I try not to pick the same people every time which  I will inevitably do anyway, lol.

There ya go. If any of you have gotten these awards before, you must’ve really deserved them. ;)


  1. Thank you so much for the awards!!

  2. Thank you for the awards.. now to list 10 honest things about myself... this could take some time! lol

  3. Thanks! I get insomnia and headaches when I'm stressed too.

  4. Awww. How very kind. :)

  5. Thank you so much, Trisha! I was thinking of doing that 25 things about me meme, but this one will be much easier. LOL I'm having trouble getting beyond two at this point. :-) I'll probably post this one later in the week.

    Have you gotten used to your new hair color? Sometimes it takes me awhile to adjust to a new cut and color. Sometimes I like it when I walk out and hate it later. :-S

    You really shouldn't have to defend why you are a sahm or wahm. It's not fair for people to put you on the spot like that and I really don't see what the problem with either is.

    I got so behind on Battlestar Gallactica that I stopped watching, but I really hope to catch it on DVD. I loved what I did see of the show.

  6. Susan~~You're very welcome. :)

    LadyB~~The list, while easier than the 25 things meme going around FB, was hard!

    Pam~~You're so welcome. I totally enjoy reading your blog.

    Jennifer~~Yup. Kind, that's me. ;)

    LF~~You're welcome. I love reading about what you're reading, lol. You've given me so many new authors and books to check out.

    The hair color is okay. The Mister likes it and I've decided to live with it until my roots need touched up, lol. It's not horrible, but it's not my first choice either.

    I've been defending being a sahm for 12 years. Now that I work from home, people don't think I actually work. It's annoying but I let most of it roll of my back.

    You SO should catch up on BSG!! I think it's only been getting better with each episode.


I love comments. Leave me one. Now.
