Blog awards!

Many thanks to the wonderful Caitlin at All About Growing Up and Becoming a Famous Author, who recently passed on some blog awards to me: The Versatile Blogger and The Irresistibly Sweet Blogger. Make sure you check out her blog; she's incredibly funny and encouraging!

So now it's time for me to pass on these awards to others and share seven random facts about myself. Here we go:

1. I'm a binge cleaner. I do the necessary daily chores like dishes and laundry, but I don't do the real cleaning until I know I'm going to have company. Guess what? My friend is visiting this week...

2.  I used to be a college instructor, but my dream job for when both of my kids are in school is to work at a library or bookstore. I just love the idea of being surrounded by books all day!

3. I love taking a big spoon of peanut butter and dipping it into a dish of chocolate chips. (My mom started me on this when I was a kid. Thanks, Mom!)

4. Don't ask me to choose! I have a horrible time making decisions, even simple ones.

5. I love to make soup. It's freezing here today, so tonight I'm trying a recipe for butternut squash soup.

6. One of my favorite TV shows of all time is Felicity. I once saw Scott Speedman (he played Ben) sitting on a stoop in NYC. To this day, I'm kicking myself for not talking to him.

7. I've been watching Gossip Girl on Netflix for months. It's my guilty pleasure. I love the drama!

And now I'm passing on these awards to two of the many blogs I really enjoy:

1. April at A Writer's Ramblings
2. Shannon at Books Devoured

Have fun!


  1. yay for you! well dserved and cute facts (soup sounds wonderful!)

  2. Thank you so much for this!! I am so pleased that you like Books Devoured! I used to love Felicity too, I would kick my self for not talking to Scott Speedman too!! But also, I would have been too chicken to do it! =)

  3. Ahaha, now I have a term to describe the kind of cleaning I do! :p

  4. Deb: I can't tell you how glad I am to know that I'm not the only one! LOL

  5. Thanks, Tara. The soup was really good. The whole family ate it, which doesn't happen often around here.

    You're welcome, Shannon. I love reading your reviews. Glad to meet another Felicity fan! As far as Scott: I must have walked past him four or five times. He totally knew that I had recognized him--I could tell by the look on his face. I'm so mad at myself for not saying anything.
