  3. My friends - Girl's Night Out is my emotional savior sometimes!
  4. Author Signings - Love all these amazing people!
  5. Having a home and warmth in winter
  6. Getting Books in the mail
  7. Being able to promote wonderful books and authors that I adore
  8. My cat -- especially when she cuddles with me

Then I received this awesome award as well!

I was given this by SB of the Not Too Serious I Hope blog. She has been so great about reading, commenting and promoting this site since she found it! We are very grateful to her!

With this award, I'm supposed to tell you seven interesting things about myself and pass it on to 7 other creative bloggers...

  1. My daughter was born at 12:01 am after 14 hours of labor, and a c-section. She really just did not want to come out.
  2. If I had the money, I would have a HUGE shoe and purse collection. My husband thinks I already do.
  3. I dream of being an author.
  4. I have lots of metal in me. I have three screws in my femur, a plate and five screws in my tibia and a t-plate and 7 screws in my foot. All on the right side.
  5. If I could, I would move back to CA in a heart beat.
  6. I am the youngest of 8. Yes, I said 8!
  7. I am addicted to Facebook.

I would like to pass this award on to:
  1. Briana at The Book Pixie
  2. Speed Reader at My Favorite Author (My old blogging haunt! Check it out!)
  3. Jenn at Books at Midnight
  4. All the Reviewers at Teen Lit Review
  5. Robert at Boy With Books
  6. Kate at the Neverending Shelf
  7. Laura at the Bookie Bunch
PHEW! Is that enough blogs for you to check out and admire? Now I am off to try and go tell all of these fabulous bloggers that I have awarded them!

Happy Reading!

YAY! Thanks for the award! :)

SB said...

oh how angry were you when you had to have the C-section? My baby E was the same -- no budge after almost fourteen hours...she got the raw deal, though, she got forceps! Her poor little noggin.

Anyhow, great learning more about you! Couldn't we all just paint the world in beautiful shoes and wonderfully colourful hand-bags? Men just don't get it!

p.s. Thanks so much for the award!

Lizzy said...

Congrats on your awards, and thanks for passing one on to me! I adore my cats, and of course my friends. The award is adorable, too (and makes me want a cupcake haha).

Eli said...

Congrats to everyone who won an award! :)

I'm so behind on thanking you for the award. It looks like Angi from TLR stopped by, too. BTW, great blog. I like to see what others are reading, so I'll be back. Thanks again!
