Thank Yous, The End, & An Award

This past week has been crazy busy, which is part of the reason I'm late with my week wrap up. Blog and critique catch up, revisions, writing, and everything else.

Thank YOU

To so many people. All the awesome people who visit my blog regularly, everyone who is new to my blog, for EVERYONE who commented on my First Loves post-I got more comments on that than any other post (THANKS AGAIN for the blogfest, Alex! :D  ), another thanks to Alex for being such an AWESOME guy, to everyone who entered my giveaway &/or spread the word about it, and to Karen Hooper for offering such an awesome prize. YOU are ALL AWESOME!!! :D

The End

My first giveaway has ended and I'll be announcing the winners on Monday, along with a special surprise for a few people who entered. Stay tuned :)

An Award

I won my second blog award. :) On Thursday, Gossip_Girl over at Just You Wait!! One Day I Will... gave me the Kreativ Blogger award. Thank you GG, and if anyone hasn't yet, make sure you check her out.

Here's the deal:

1. Thank and link back to who gave you the award
2. Answer 10 questions
3. Give 10 random facts about yourself
4. Pass it on to 7 other people

1. Fave song?
Well, at the moment I don't have a absolute favorite song, but I've been listening to a lot of Florence + the Machine & a song by Sleeping At Last called Turning Page
2. Favorite desert?
This is a tie between Cherry Cheesecake (Not NY style, but a no-bake recipe that my mom has always used) & Dump Cake (If you don't know what this is, don't judge by the name, it's really yummy and so easy to make).
3. What ticks you off?
Rude/hateful/bullying/mean/etc kind of people.
4. When you're upset, what do you do?
This is a hard one, lol, not really...I cry.
5. Favorite pet?
From the time I was born, I had a miniature dachsund whom I loved dearly. When she got ran over (when I was 2), my parents got me a toy poodle to ease the pain. It worked, I loved him so much. He had to be put to sleep from old age when I was in middle school and it wasn't until I became an adult that I found another pet that I loved as much as those two. He was a pomeranian and I loved him more than anything (this was before I had my kids). He died because his intestines became tied in a knot (apparently this is something that tends to happen to poms) and although I got my kids a mini dachsund (whom I love)'s not the same and when I seek out a dog of my own it will be a Pom.
6. Black or White?
Well, I like black, it has so many different uses. Plus, most of my shirts are either black or blue. White is too clean for me.
7. Biggest fear?
I've had this question before (I think) and my biggest fear is losing my kids in any way. I'd be lost without them.
8. What is your attitude?
Take life for what it is and find the enjoyment in it. Like my blog says: Live, laugh, love and don't be afraid to cry sometimes :) (Perhaps not exactly what this question means, but ah well.)
9. What is perfection?
The sun as it's just beginning to come over the horizon. My kids, even with all their madness. Love, not bs 'oh yeah, I love you' but real love (of any sort as long as it's real). Things in life that taken for granted. The imperfections that make a person who they are. I could keep going. And I know many people say 'perfection' doesn't exist (and it doesn't in the way most people define it), but really, it can, depending on how you look at life.
10. What is your guilty pleasure?
I have no answer for this. I try not to feel guilty over anything I enjoy. If I enjoy it, who cares? I don't do much that's 'bad' for me, and even if someone may think it is, oh well. So, I really don't have anything to put here.

Random Facts:

Okay, sorry, but I'm not doing the random facts thing because I really don't have time and also this post is already long enough.


(BTW-if anyone is listed and you either don't do awards, or you already have this one then it's fine if you pass it up :)  )

E.M. LaBonte
Jemi Fraser
Donna B McNicol
Rachel Morgan
And my seventh is a cop out-if you're reading this, then I'm giving you the award too :D

Happy Sunday! :)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Congratulations! And glad you enjoyed the blogfest so much.
Black is my favorite color because it goes with anything and just looks cool.

Donna B. McNicol said...

Awww, thank you so much!

Rachel Morgan said...

Thank you so much! I'd probably also choose black... Mainly because my skin is so pale that I hardly ever wear white. I just disappear against it!
