You Guys Make my Day! Wait no....My Year!!!

Okay, so I have been given a few awards in the last month from some incredibly cool bloggy friends. To them I want to say, "Thanks, you made my year!"

Here they are:
Elana J gave me The Creative Writing Award

Tiana Lei gave me the Honest Scrap Award

And Patti N. gave me the Over the Top Award.

They are all great writers, please check out their blogs. =)

Okay, for the Honest Scrap Award I have to:

• List ten honest things about yourself that your blogging friends do not know about you.
• Give the award away to seven (or 10?) bloggers.
• Let the seven (or 10?) bloggers know they have received the award.
• Link back to the person who awarded you.

Ten things you guys don't know about me???? Okay, here it goes:

1- Love songs make me cry, so I don't listen to them. Okay a few, but not many. I like the funky weird songs that make me laugh.
2- I am always happy when Fall comes (because I am pasty white and am so glad I don't have to show off my white, white, tan anymore).
3- Fudge on everything - Oh wait, you know that.
4- I loved the book the Scarlet Pimpernel (Oh, swoon).
5- I hated Lord of the Flies (ew, gross).
6- I'm getting my hair cut today (I hope I don't look like my brother when it's done!)
7- I have a terrible dry sense of humor.
8- My neighbors get scared when I use dry sense of humor, because they are not use to me being funny. Weird, I know.
9- My husband cracks up every time I use my dry sense of humor. I love that man.
10- My Favorite date night with cute hubby: Eating out and Book store. Best date nights ever!

I've search all over the bloggie-world for people I can pass this on to and I have realized something drastic. Either everyone has it, or they don't post their awards and I can't tell if they have it. So here is what I am doing. If you have not yet received the Scrap Award, I'm passing it to you. Just put your name in the comments so I (and others) can go check out your awesomeness answers. Deal? Deal!

I love fall. I wish it were fall all year long!

Carolyn V. said...

L.T. you are at the top of my list of awesome people. I can't wait to spend quality writing time with you this week!

Tess, you are right. Love eating out and the smell of newly printed books. *sigh*

Shannon, really? I honestly thought I was the only person who had a hard time with love songs. Yay! I'm not alone. Thanks for the comment!

Suzy, you're welcome. Your blog is very awesome. I loved your letter to your daughter you posted. I hope everyone will go read it.

Patti, I had fudge for breakfast and only did half my workout this morning. I'm in trouble.

Kristina, Yes! Fall is the best!

Elana Johnson said...

Congrats on the awards. You so deserve them. And I'm so glad you have an old cell phone too! Woot!

Angie said...

Love your lists! You deserve all your awards.

Mary Campbell said...

Congrats on all the awards. Very awesome. I love all your lists and I love dry humor. Fall is my favorite time of year too. The weather is nice, but we don't have the mud and rain like in the spring.

Lisa and Laura said...

Nice work! How did your hair come out??

Carolyn V. said...

Elana & Angie, Thanks you guys!

Mary, I love that Fall!

Lisa & Laura, The hair came out short. ;p

Yay :) You deserve those awards. And I loved reading those things about you. I"m the same way, there is this one song by Carrie Underwood (I think it's called Just a Dream?) anyway, I can't listen to it because it makes me cry.

Carolyn V. said...

Tiana, I know what you mean. There are just so many great songs out there that make me cry. =)
