Beautiful Blogger Award

Who me?  Really?  Awww....shucks.  Thanks.

Dale at Pyretic Ponderings selected me as a recipient for a Beautiful Blogger Award.   Dale seems to love all things word-related (I use lots of words, that must be why she likes me--heehee) and her blog is an online journal of her daily life.  She recently raved about the new Alice in Wonderland movie and made me want to see it--read her review here.  She passes this on about the award:

As a recipient of the Beautiful Blogger Award, one should:

- Add a link and a note of thanks to the person giving the award
- Pass the award on to 15 bloggers whose blogs that you love
- Share 7 things about yourself 

Okay, I'll play!  I like awards!

Seven things about myself (I'll try to be a bit random here):

1.  I am often late.  Often.  Late.

2.  I grew up in New York--Long Island.   I blame my bad grammar and bad habit of interrupting others on my heritage.

3.  I live in Colorado and love the mountains and outdoors, but I hardly ever hike and I've never skiied.  Pathetic!

4.  I worked for seven years on Residence Life Staff at Wheaton College in IL--which means I lived in a Residence Hall with 500+ freshmen men and women that whole time.  I was married throughout--and had my first child while I worked there. I LOVED it!!

5.  I cook so we can eat, but I don't really love it.  or like it.  Well, eating, yes.  Cooking, no.

6.  One of my favorite scriptures is Genesis 50:20 from the end of Joseph's life.  I don't ever hear people say that is one of their favs.

7.  I don't like coffee or tea or hot chocolate or chai or mochacinnos or anything hip you can drink at a coffee shop.  How is a girl supposed to socialize when she doesn't like such things??

The blogs I choose to receive the Beautiful Blogger Award are all blogs I read regularly, but you may not know of yet--if you have not visited them, check them out!

Thanks, Dale for the honor of this lovely award.  Why anyone chooses to read and/or follow me is a mystery, but I am truly grateful for each one of you who click over to my little corner of bloggieland.

You are so sweet! Thank you!

I can't believe you don't like coffee or tea or anything fun. What do you drink??? Water? Soda? Juice?

Hey, do you think we're going to get a snow day tomorrow? My kids are sure hoping so! I wouldn't mind an extra day of spring break. ;)

Thanks, Dawn! I love it! And you!
And no coffee? Or Caramel Mocchiato? Even Chai Tea? You've got to help a sista out!

Sharone said...

Ooh, yay!! Thanks so much for such a sweet award! :)

Also, you are definitely the first person I've met (met?) that doesn't like any of the beverage options at your average coffee place. I know that you're a Diet Coke girl, which serves a similar function, but no one really says, "Hey, let's meet for Diet Coke!" You should start a new trend! :)

Dawn said...

oh dawn, thanks. especially when i am feeling not-so-beautiful. i love the little things about you... and i am going to be checking out that verse!

Richella said...

Dawn. . . you are so kind! Thank you. You really do have a beautiful space here, reflective of a beautiful heart.

But you don't drink coffee? Really?? How on earth do you stay awake? I think I could find a way to socialize with you without a cup in my hands. . . but I do need me some caffeine!

By the way, I love love love Genesis. If the story of Joseph doesn't light your fire, your wood's wet.

Thank you again!

Thanks for passing on the award!
And really, not even a bit of hiking? Is it the Long Island girl in ya? Better off chatting & shopping than exploring the wild outdoors? :-)

Thanks again, lady!!

Thanks for playing along! I enjoy your blog because you're frank, candid, inspiring, unexpected, and entertaining. (Is that enough adjectives from Word Girl?) :)
