All you need is love

So... I was thinking, it's about time I started a blog roll. If you want your site to appear on my side bar, just leave a comment below and I will link you up!

In other news, I've gotten three - count 'em - three blog awards! *Does the Carlton dance*

Scott Niven has seen fit to bestow the irresistibly sweet and the stylish blogger award on me. Thank you! Bling and food, could a girl ask for more?

I also received the versatile blogger award from Alex Megas! The fact that he sought me out really touch me, thank you!

I'm going to bestow these babies on the following:

1. The stylish blogger award goes to... eff at Groupie. I would say she is defiantly is in the know when it comes to good music.

2. The Irresistibly Sweet award goes to... Michelle at A Local Wanderer. Her sweet details about what is going on in my home state are so worth a mention.

3. The versatile award goes to... Rory at The Scottish Scribbler. His blog posts range from photos in his current area (Australia) to conversations with the Royal Family. He is one blogger you won't want to miss!

Now for a few silly things about me:

1. Last night I figured out that I can make a killer Turkey Burger! Season the meat with poultry seasoning, garlic & onion power, and some ground pepper. Then buckle up for great taste without losing too much healthy. I had mine on a whole wheat bun with part-skim mozzarella, avocado, red onion, and tomato - yum! Seriously drooling just thinking about it.

2. The current show I'm obsessing over is Numb3rs (yes I know it's not on the air anymore, but they have all the seasons on Netflix. So much better than waiting week after week.)

3. I play the piano. Not well, mind you, but I can read music.

That about sums it up. Everyone have a great Thursday!

Oh, I love "the Carlton!" Congrats on your awards! :D

Ava Jae said...

Blog rolls, YAY! You already know my linkage. :)

Congrats on your awards! Very cool!

I totally agree that watching shows on Netflix is superior to waiting week after week. The only downfall is when it ends. Or when the next season isn't have to wait a while. Oh wells.

Thanks for sharing--and that turkey burger sounds delicious btw, you're making ME hungry now--and I look forward to seeing your awesome, new, shiny blog roll!

Congrats on the awards! You so deserve them! I just discovered A Local Wanderer yesterday and loved the place, too. I'll have to check out the others.

By the way, I would love to appear on your blog roll!

Marion Williams-Bennett said...

Yay yay and yay! congratulations! And thanks for the great blog list!

Michael Thomas said...

OMG, Turkey Burgers! I just tried some a couple of weeks back. Delicious.

Would love to be on your blog roll Jen. On that note, perhaps I should start one. I'll keep it in mind next time I work on the site.

And Congrats on your awards!

Niki Hudson said...

Congrats on the awards--I'd say they are well deserved! Also, thank you for introducing us to these other fabulous bloggers! What an excellent way to pay it forward.

Love the turkey burger idea. I've also taken to using ground turkey in my spaghetti sauce and homemade chili, instead of beef. Yum! Have you tried turkey bacon yet? It's another great alternative, but that one takes more getting used to.

Keep up the great work, Jen! And I would also LOVE to be on your blogroll.

Lyn Midnight said...

Aww. see, I knew you're a blog star, Jen. CELEBRATE! <3 And thanks for the recommendations, I went to check The Scottish Scribbler and I love it! Omg... Numb3rs, huh? THAT's what I forgot to check out. Since I'm a TV series nut, I pride myself on having watched too many. Now you're just adding to my list. *sigh* Ok, gotta go, congrats again! ;)

Loved Numbers! They had it for a short stint on TNT and then stopped showing it. Now I'm obsessing over old episodes of X-files (netflixing them at night) and Fringe!

Rory Grant said...

Woo Hoo - Congrats Jenniefire! And thank you ever so much for your kind words and the 'versatile' award. I'm so versatile I'll be pulling the innards out of the clothes drier today before mending the lawnmower then vacuuming the dog, but I suspect the versatility is in relation to my blog. Thank you!

Michelle Porth said...

Congrats on the blog awards! You totally deserve them! And I love Numbers! It's so good!!

I'd also love to be on your blogroll :)

Michelle said...

Thanks again for the award, and also for the reminder that I should weed out my blogroll and add some of the great new blogs (like yours) that I'm loving lately.
