For me? Really?

Thanks for helping me hit the 200 follower mark, guys! It's been a while getting here, but I have to admit that my heart did a little flip when I realized I had made it.  So this is for you:


So this post is going to be a mish-mash of updates. First, I was able to complete this month's Write1Sub1. I'm waiting to hear back on my submission, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. In the meantime, check out these other winners as part of the:


Donna from Donna's Book Pub

Misa Buckley from Misa Buckley: The misadventures of a sci fi writer

I've also received the Stylish Blogger Award from the wonderful LadyJai.

  1. So accorfding to the rules of this award, I need to do three things:
1. Thank and link back to the person who gave me the award.
2. State 7 things about myself.
3. Pass the award on to 15 recently discovered bloggers.

Sounds pretty easy, right? Oh wait, I have to talk about myself? Well, since this is the stylish blogger award, I'll try and keep the list to my personal sense of style.

  1. I am notorious for getting bored with the lay out of a room.  After living in a space for anywhere from 3 months to a year (really depends on the room) I get sick of it, and force my husband to do all the heavy lifting to change it around.
  2. I love mid-century modern style, but know I'm not hip enough to carry it off.  So I stick to a more traditional feel in the house.
  3. I'd love to have a Victorian style nursery for whenever the husband and I have a baby.
  4. I'm a plus sized girl, who is also 5'2" so I have a hard time finding pants that fit just right.  When I do, I buy them in every color they have.
  5. I love scarves but rarely wear them because I don't quite know what to do with them.
  6. I love wearing lots of bright colors and patterns.  Currently my favorite outfit is black pants, bright blue top, houndstooth  jacket, and mustard colored clutch.
  7. Apparently #1 also applies to the look of my blog.  I'm already feeling the itch again. 
I always feel strange about the next part, because I always feel like I'm missing someone.  So in no particular order, here's the lucky one's that I've chosen to pass the award on to:
  1.  Eileen Wiedbrauk from Speak Coffee to Me
  2. E.C. Smith from E.C.'s Ramblings
  3. Summer Ross from My Inner Fairy
  4. Sully from Sully's Scribbles
  5. Elizabeth Twist from Elizabeth Twist: Writer, Plague Enthusiast
  6. Tanya Reimer from Life's like that
  7. Kim Mullican from Altruism in Writing
  8. Autumn Shelley from Magick, Alchemy, and Love
  9. Rebecca from Beck's Chic Life
  10. Alex from Alex J. Cavanaugh
  11. Stephanie from Our Marriage Adventure
  12. Lindsay from That's So Cuegly!
  13. Sherry at Young House Love
  14. Titti from Shoestring Pavilion
  15. Lawrence from The Lawrence/Julie & Julia Project
Ok, ok, so I cheated a bit and used my crusader group.  But they are all pretty snazzy looking blogs!  Keep an eye out for a future giveaway to celebrate my blogging milestone!

Well done on your award! I personally find the choosing of who to pass awards onto the hardest part of the whole thing. There are too many great blogs out there! :D

Rachel Morgan said...

Congrats on both 200 followers and your award!
So what are you going to change your blog look to next?

Carol Riggs said...

Congrats on making 200! I just got that and had a celebration too! And also, big congrats on your award, and it was fun learning more about you. Haha, about #1 and #7. I do that with my desktop background--can't stand to have the same one more than a week. It's usually every few days. ;o) My hubbs thinks I'm nutz; he has ONE and leaves it. LOL
