More Love!

I hope everyone had a fantastic mother's day weekend! I know I did, thanks to an incredibly awesome husband who cleaned the house and let me have a girls night out. (I know you're all jealous!)

To start off another fantastic Monday (I like Mondays, and yes I am aware that I am strange. I'm also a morning person.) I have gotten another award from a totally cool blogger who is probably way more deserving than me! Check out Cherie over at Ready.Write.Go this chicka is hilarious! If you need a pick-me-up I suggest heading on over there.

Now for the award:

Of course there are also some rules that go along with the honor. They are as follows:

1. Thank and link to the person who nominated me.
2. Share seven random facts about myself.
3. Pass the award along to 5 new-found blogging buddies.
4. Contact the winners to congratulate them.

Now I have to think of 7 more random things about myself, so you better be prepared for the randomness.

1. My favorite cereal is Chocolate Marshmallow Maties (it's a guilty pleasure)
2. If I had time, I would probably play Zelda on a daily basis (go Ocarina of Time!)
3. I'm a closet Twilighter (Don't hate me! I simply appreciate how Stephenie Meyer can suck a reader in despite poor editing, and it's a good story)
4. I have two goldfish who have been alive for almost two years (I don't know why they continue to live, I don't even feed them half the time.)
5. My families yearly vacation is rafting the Green River (3 day stillwater float) no joke. I can tough it outdoors.
6. My favorite color is pink.
7. I have a terrible fear of heights.

So there you have it, me at my randomness. I'm giving away this awesome award to the five stylish people listed below.

1. Ashely - The bookish Brunette
2. L. Carrol - Lor Mandela
3. Amy - A Twisted Writers thoughts
4. Kathryn - Bumblebee
5. Mel - Writings, musings, and other such nonsense.

One last thing before I go. I just had to share this too cute pic of my little boy on mother's day. Love!
(He's holding a car, but I cropped it out. lol!)

Have a great day!

Yay for Jen! You make that award look good! I love your seven things (I'm afraid of heights too) plus your little guy is so adorable ;)

Thanks for the kind words, btw. You're so sweet :)

Hi Jen! Thanks for your kind words! From one writer to another, it means a lot. I'm so happy to meet another mother and writer. It sure is a balancing act, isn't it?

J. A. Bennett said...

Cherie - thank you so much! I tend to think he is the handsomest little guy in the whole world, but then again I'm biased!

Rachel - Yes it is! The great thing about the internet is that we can find others to buoy us up through the hard times. Keep writing and keep looking for the good in things!
