Another Award? I Promise Not To Let It Go To My Head

A dear, sweet, blogger who just recently started following my blog presented me with this award a few days ago. Here is a link to her blog, Living With A Healthy Outlook. I am very humbled and honored that she would see fit to present me with this award. I also want to apologize to her for not posting this sooner. I had a calculus final on Friday. Wheh! I survived it… barely, but now that it is out of the way I wanted to thank her for this great honor! I’m so thankful to my new-found blogging community who shower me with support and affirmation as I navigate the hard times in life. I am so blessed, thank you again Angel!

Never Give Up blog-award

Who Doesn’t Like The Occasional “Pat On The Back”

I have been nominated for several different blogging awards. Who knew?!? I’m so honored that there are people who read my work and see fit to flatter me with such high praise. The rules for accepting these awards is similar for each so I’ll do them all at once. Typically you nominate 15 other bloggers as well but seeing as I’m going to accept all three in one post I’ve listed a few more than 15.

Here are the official rules of acceptance:

  • Display the Award Certificate on your website.
  • Announce your win with a post and link to whoever presented you with the award.
  • Present 15 awards to deserving bloggers.
  • Drop them a comment to tip them off after you have linked them in the post.
  • Post 7 interesting things about yourself.

First, seven things about myself:

1 – Before I was married I adopted two dogs and named them Chaos and Havoc and they fully live up to their names… I know, I brought this on myself, but I couldn’t live without them!

2- I play the flute, although I hate to admit that it is getting more and more difficult to do so. I will play until my absolute last breath, even if no one wants to hear me by then.

3- I am studying astrophysics and it is HARD but might I use terrible grammar and add that it is WAY COOL! Yes, I am a nerd.

4- I will eat just about anything with the exception of peas or milk. I can’t stand ’em!

5- I don’t like the feeling of socks on my feet, nylons are ok, but socks drive me bonkers. Don’t ask, I don’t get it either…

6- I make my bed almost everyday, rain or shine, no matter how sick I am.

7- I am the clumsiest person you will ever meet. No… really I am!

Next, to thank those who’ve nominated me; check these bloggers out. I am a regular reader of all of them and each of these writers has deeply touched me through their words as they share their struggles and triumphs. Well worth the read if you ask me!

“From the Fog” who nominated me for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award and the Dragon Loyalty Award.



“Do I Look Sick?” who nominated me for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award.

“Wings Like Eagles In The Desert” who nominated me for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award.
