Very Inspiring Blogger Award

So, I said I wouldn’t be back until 2015. But before I logged off WordPress, I read that Andy Mulberry (an author of middle grade stories) nominated me for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award! Holy-moly…and THANK YOU Andy!!!

Okay, so I’ve no idea where this award originated but I wouldn’t care if it was by a kindergarten class insisting to award me for best misfit socks. I’ll proudly except this nomination! Woot-woot! (And seriously, hop over to Andy’s site and learn about her stories!)

The award rules are:

  • Display the award on your blog
  • Link back to the person who nominated you
  • State 7 things about yourself
  • Nominate 15 bloggers, link to them, and notify them about their nominations (Wow…that’s a lot.)

Okay, here it goes:

  1. I secretly love cheese more than chocolate. (Shhh, don’t tell Miss Swiss. I’ll need her this winter.)
  2. The past few years I’ve been bah-hum-bug about Christmas and have decorated only one to two days before the magical event. (You read that right. Behold. A Christmas tree erected on Christmas Eve.)
  3. My daughter had to sweet talk me into NOT taking the tree down the day after Christmas last year. (You in the corner, stop throwing stones! Refer to #1 and continue.)
  4.  I have a dog that does a front handstand when she urinates. Every. Time. (Don’t ask me how she keeps the pee off herself, but she does.)
  5. I once searched for thirty minutes wondering where I’d put the TV remote. Gave up and got a glass of tea. The remote was in the fridge. (Loosing my mind at twenty and have been going full force ever since.)
  6. While playing cards with friends on the Fourth of July (once again, in my twenties) and laughing, a temporary tooth that I thought was permanent fell out of my mouth and onto the kitchen table. Needless to say, the game never resumed because no one could stop laughing. (Alcohol may or may not have been involved.)
  7. My writing mind finds inspiration in almost anything. I once proved it by blogging an idea about toilet paper. (Seriously. My dog vomited. I stepped into the muck and imagined bacteria absorbing into my skin, causing me to grow claws and a tongue that could lick the wax out of my own ear.)

Now for my nominations:

  1. Brenda Drake
  2. Authoress (Miss Snark’s First Victim)
  3. Dan Koboldt
  4. Lauren Spieller
  5. Jessa Russo
  6. Caitlin Sinead
  7. Veronica Bartles
  8. Natasha Neagle
  9. SC Write
  10. Lucas Hargis
  11. Laura Heffernan
  12. Kimberly P. Chase
  13. Michelle Hauck
  14. Rae Chang
  15. Amy Trueblood

Okay, I was wrong. Fifteen isn’t enough to name all the wonderful people blogging great stuff! If I didn’t name you, it’s not because I don’t love you! And some that I wanted to name, I had trouble finding your blog. (Remember, I was in a hurry to post this so I could get on with Christmas shenanigans.)

Once again, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
