Blog Awards

About a month ago, I was nominated for two different blog awards, and I’m now finally able to post about them.

The first one (Very Inspiring Award) I was nominated by the wonderful Alana Munro.

Thank you so much!

I’m truly honored to be receiving this and that you thought of me.

Alana is an author of the book called, Women Behaving Badly. Here’s what it’s about:

Have you ever been hurt by a woman? Are you fed up with the constant bitching, gossiping and manipulation between the females in your life? Do you want happier and healthier relationships with females? Do you wish to weed out the toxic women and seek out only positive women?

If you have ever wondered why some women are complicated creatures, this book will offer you straight talking answers. This book will highlight all the strange, controlling and spiteful behaviours that some females specialise in. This book attempts to understand what actually drives women to be cruel or bitchy to each other. It attempts to make sense of the huge expectations women place on each other. How can we avoid toxic women? What bad behaviours should we be looking out for? This book explores every cruel behaviour possible and attempts to understand what is really going on between the females in our life.

Alana nominated me because she said I offered something unique and was an inspiration to the world.

How sweet, huh?

But let me tell ya . . . Alana has a lot to offer as well. She’s always doing author interviews and willing to help the writing community out. She’s amazing, and I’m thankful we met. You should check out her awesome website btw. Here it is:

The other blog award I received (Super Sweet Blogging Award) was from another amazing and wonderful person . . . Vashti
Quirzo-Vega. If you’ve read the previous blog I’ve done, you’ll remember she’s the author of The Basement. She’s also a blogger. Here’s her blog address:

I want to thank Vashti for this awesome award. I’m so glad I met her. She’s great and has become a friend of mine in the literary world.

Now I’m supposed to answer 5 super sweet questions as part of this award. Here they are:

1.) Cakes or Cookies?

Cookies. Monster cookies are my favorite. They rock!

2.) Favorite Sweet Treat?

I have so many. I don’t know. I love fried bread with butter and cinnamon sugar on it. I also love peanut butter and chocolate ice cream from Baskin Robbins. Oh, and chocolate soda with mint chocolate chip ice cream in it. And . . . I can go on and on. :)

3.) Sweet Nick Name?

My mom used to call me pumpkin.

4.) What Is The Sweetest Thing Anybody Has Ever Done For You?

There are so many. I can’t just name one.

5.) What Is Your Sweetest Memory?

When my niece Ariel was 16 months old, we were sitting on the couch watching a black and white cartoon. There were these babies in a nursery. One baby started crying and then another. Ariel gave me a worried look and then looked back at the TV. A third baby cried. Ariel looked at me again, concern marring her face. I smiled and told her it was okay. Her gaze swept back to the cartoon and the whole nursery erupted in wails. Ariel’s bottom lip quivered, and she leaned over and hugged me. It was so damn cute. I’ll never forget it.

Now I’m supposed to announce nominees–13 of them. Frankly, even though I know a lot of bloggers, I’m not sure who hasn’t received this award or not. I don’t have time at the moment to weed them out. There are a lot of wonderful bloggers out there who deserves it. When I get some more time, I’ll announce them.

Anyway, it’s Friday!
