Sugar Doll Award

Happy Friday, Humble Readers!

(not that Friday means anything in my world... I work all weekend.  *sigh*)

The lovely and very sweet Elana bestowed this honour on me a few weeks ago and I have super deliquent in acknowledging it and passing it along.

So, the rules (and there are ALWAYS rules!):  I have to say 10 things about myself (I'm going to try to make them sweet things in honour of the name of the award) then give this award to 10 fellow bloggers. Hold on to your hats!

10 Things About Me:
  1. My favourite movie theater snack is hot buttered popcorn with m&m peanuts thrown in.
  2. I'm not much of a baker, but I make an incredible cinnamon loaf.  Yum!
  3. Watermelon is my new favourite food.
  4. In my freshman year of college, I wrote a fairy tale starring a group of my friends. 
  5. I not-so-secretly adore boy bands. 
  6. I am currently working on building my library of children's books (the employee discount won't last forever). 
  7. Our nursery is going to be elephant themed, and I have found the most adorable elephant stuffies.
  8. I make a killer bbq sauce.  And don't ask, I will NOT give out the recipe (based on a recipe of my aunt's).  Every cook needs a secret recipe or two.  But let me know when you're coming over, and I'll make you some ribs (or chicken for those who don't eat pork)
  9. My sweetest memory of my grandpa Bob... our last conversation.  It was a goofy conversation about the family's dogs and what their lives would be like if they ran a nightclub.  (Grandpa was a bit odd!)  He was in the hospital, and we were laughing so hard that we got in trouble from the nurses.
  10. When I was a child I had two nicknames... Pickles and Fred. 
Ok, so onto the blogs! 
  1. Minta at Life Family and the Pursuit of Sanity
  2. Kelli at No Lingerie Here
  3. Soo See at Holy Moly Toledo(s)
  4. Amy at Canadian Home
  5. Idgie at Long and Winding Road
  6. Alana at Alana-isms
  7. Kristin at Dragondreamer's Lair
  8. Ernie at ErnieGirl
  9. Rain at Raining Raining
  10. Callista at Down the Rabbit Hole
I love all my sweet bloggy friends! 


  1. Thank you for the award! I've never put m&m peanuts in my movie theater popcorn, I use Milk Duds! Yum...

  2. Aaaaaw, thanks sweetie! I love the image of the nurse shushing you and your Grandpa. I think that would have made me laugh even harder.

  3. Hi! well done on the award, I'm so happy all is progressing well with your pregnancy! Stopping by for ICLW to leave you my monthly hug!

  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

    I also love movie theater popcorn -yum- except without the m&ms.

    Love the idea of an elephant theme - so cute! Congrats on your little baby and heartbeat. :) Best of luck!
