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!

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!

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!

Love,
Richella

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?) :)
