Awards Season!

Good Evening Humble Readers...

In the last couple of days, I have been bestowed two wonderful awards from some lovely new bloggy friends! Thank you so much, ladies, for thinking of me!  Both of the awards have basically the same requirements, so I'm going to do both together.

MoonNStarMommy from A Page In My Book gave me...

And Journey Girl from Donor Eggs Journey gave me...

Here are the rules for the acceptance of the award:
1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you the award.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Award 15 other bloggers.
4. Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award.

Alrighty then... seven things about me.
  1. I'm adventurous when it comes to food, but there are a few things that I just can't bring myself to enjoy.  In general, fruit and meat shouldn't be consumed together.  Turkey with cranberries? Ick!  Ham with pineapple? Ugh!  Pork chops with applesauce? *shudder*  Don't get me started on chutneys with things like chicken curry.  The one exception to the rule is citrus... because citrus fruits like lemon and orange lend themselves to savory applications.  (I never said I made any sense).
  2. I love writing with fountain pens.  I've only ever used cheap ones, but I dream of one day owning a really fancy fountain pen.
  3. On my life list... Go to Tanzania and work with the Lutheran Masai Girls School.  It's a school that takes in abandoned/orphaned Masai girls.  My college is affiliated with the school and I would love to go over on one of the trips they organize.  I would also really love to go on safari.
  4. I used to collect postcards.  I had them from all over the place, and had some pretty crazy ones.  I wish I knew what happened to them all.  I'd like to get back into it.  Wanna help me? 
  5. I used to be a cat person.  Used to be.  Right through junior high and high school, we always had cats.  Then somehow I developed an allergy to them.  Now I can't be around them for more than a few minutes without having my face puff up like a blow fish.
  6. I currently hold the high score on Wii bowling.  That's right folks, I beat my Beloved!  Woohoo!
  7. I am a wimp when it comes to throwing out the leftovers that sit too long in the fridge.  I make my poor long suffering Beloved do it every time. 
I know that these awards have been making the rounds for the last couple of weeks, so instead of awarding specific people, I'm awarding everybody!  If you haven't gotten these awards yet, please consider yourself awarded!  And know that I am sending these out with much bloggy-love!

Ginny has done really well with her vaccinations.  She cried (read: SHRIEKED) when they did the three needles, but fifteen minutes later she was just fine.  She's been a little fussy today, but so far no fever or any other side effects.

Don't forget to stop by Dragondreamer's Lair and enter Kristin's giveaway!  Who couldn't use $125 to spend at


  1. great meme. I did one a few days ago.
    Glad everything went relatively well with the vaccinations!

  2. Congrats!

    I also make Hubby deal with the leftovers, LOL.

    Have fun on your trip!!!


Hobbits are social creatures, and love hearing from friends old and new. Pull up a comfy chair and let's get to know one another.
