Blog Award

The Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award

I was presented with this award by the wonderful Kristie McMartin

And she was presented the award by her friend Pippa Jay

Thanks to both of you!

The rules of this award are as follows: 
1. Thank and add a Link To the Person who Nominated You.
2. Share Seven Random Facts About Yourself.
3. Pass the Award on to 15 deserving blog buddies.
4. Contact those buddies to let them know.

Random Facts about me:
1.  I’ve had a child in every state that I had a semi-permanent residence in since I got married. Four to be exact. 

2.    I own a guitar but haven’t really learned to play it, and someday I hope to take lessons on it, when life slows down a little.  I know how likely that is also.

3.    I love new music; I try to stay up on the current scene, not so much pop music but rock and alternative.

4.    I shave my head, what little hair I have left has turned gray and I’m not ready to be that old yet.

5.    I used to really love to play games, of any sort really, but now I find I get more satisfaction out of writing or reading.

6.    Dishonesty really turns me off in a big way.

7.    I love creating artwork as much as I do writing.

Here are some bloggers you should follow:

These are all wonderful people who I follow and wish I could know better, I hope you will enjoy getting to know them as much as I have!


  1. Thanks so much for the blog award! And congrats on receiving it yourself. :)

    I, too, have notions to learn how to play the guitar, but I'm thinking I won't have time for that until I hit retirement or something, lol.

  2. Aw, thanks so much for mentioning me! So you think I should start shaving my head?


  3. LOL Tawna I wouldn't recommend it unless you want to be the new Sinead O'Connor. It would likely be an attention grabber. =)

    Roni, I've had one for 25 years and haven't learned yet, maybe I'll be ready in another 25 =).

  4. Aww, thank you so much for the award! :) You completely deserve it.

    And I have delusions of eventually learning to play piano, so I'm right there with you.

  5. What an honor to be listed among the Greats! He he. Thanks Todd!

  6. I've been dodging these awards left and right, but now I'm starting to think that I'm going to have break down and do it. /sigh

  7. Thanks!
    Someone else also gave me this award (but I wanted to finish my Nashville posts before I blogged) and I was going to give it to you! Oh well...

    Guess that just makes me doubly sweet!
