Very Inspiring

Happy Saturday to you all!


I was nominated for the Very Inspiring blogger award, just before the Holidays for a blogging award by my very dear friend Rob. He is a wonderful and funny man (I know so hard to find these days – now now he’s taken 😉 ) I am so very humbled to receive the nomination and truly thankful to Rob for keeping me going this first year of blogging, I alway know I can count on him to read my posts if sometimes he is the only one.

Here are the rules for this award:

1. Thank the person who nominated you and add their link to your blog. Check.
2. List the award rules so your nominees will know what to do – Check
3. State 7 things about yourself – below 🙂
4. Nominate 15 other bloggers – again below 🙂
5. Contact your nominees and provide a link to your post – TBD
6. Display the award logo (button) on your blog, whether on your sidebar or about page, or special award page – check

OK 7 things about myself:

1. I have an obsession with hair bobs (ties, barrettes, fascinators etc) I buy them then have to really thing about wearing them.
2. I am working on my Advanced Communicator Silver award in Toastmasters this year.
3. I share my very small queen sized bed with my husband, two dogs and a pillow pet that looks like Sully from Monsters Inc.
4. I’m looking into starting a small business on Etsy this year – wish me luck
5. I’m a sucker for a man in a nice suit and tie (Oh my ties are my thing)
6. I Collect Disney Silhouettes every time I visit – much to my family’s chagrin
7. I really really want to be independently wealthy so I can do the things I really want to do (like write) and hang out with you guys all day instead of working.


And on to my nominees, for those nominated please do not feel obligated in anyway to participate, this is my way of showing love and appreciation for your writing!

Dragon’s loyalty award – tardy

A very strange thing happened to me when I started blogging at the start of this year. I have a group of people that I have never met but have grown to care about over the last few months. When life allows I pour over my WordPress reader and “catch up” on the comings and goings of everyone’s life.
One of my first followers and biggest reason for coming back and writing each day nominated me for the Dragon’s loyalty award a while back and between feeling unworthy, overwhelmed and fried at work I shied away from blogging not sure how to respond. Today I am shamelessly using my blog for a few things.

1. As a public apology to Rob I am sorry this took so long to post, I am humbled at your nomination and thank you from the bottom of my heard.

2. I am shamelessly accepting this award and changing the parameters with a promise to do better next time.

Here goes:

The rules for the Dragon’s loyalty award are:
1. visit and thank the blogger who nominated you
2. Acknowledge the blogger on your blog and a link back
3. You must share seven things other bloggers may not know about you
4. Nominate up to 15 bloggers for Dragons Loyalty award, provide a link to their blogs in your post
5. Copy and paste the award somewhere on your blog

Seven things you may not know about me:

1. I’m double jointed in my hands and arms, and still to this day I can totally creep people out with how far my thumb bends the wrong way
2. My ex-husband and I are best friends now (I won’t lie and tell you we magically got there to start with)
3. I secretly want to sing Karaoke
4. I am terrified of anything small that moves quickly, (mice, spiders, fish, small children, chinchillas)
5. I really want to try taking a ballet class but am afraid they’ll tell me I’m too fat and old
6. I am the recipient of the the Presidents Volunteer Service award two years in a row
7. I have an accessory obsession (shoes, purses, watches etc)

And here’s where I have to change the rules a little bit, I would love to nominate 15 other bloggers for this award, but honestly I haven’t been blogging or really reading blogs long enough to have 15 blogs to nominate so instead here are the ten blogs I read as often as I can and as often as they post.
