Holy Awards Batman!

Ok, so, first of all - painting is a bear!  But gleefully over!  I spent Sunday and Monday nights painting my bedroom (photos to come later) and was so worn out that I deemed last night a television veg-out night.  Hence my blogosphere absenteeism!  But it appears I have some catching up to do...

First of all - thanks to Kristin for this beauty of an award that means oh-so-much-to-me since it came from such a fun, lovely, Austen-loving lady!

I'm passing this one on to:

I'm betting these cool ladies have already gotten this award from other's before myself and if so, please feel free of any responsibility that comes from receiving this.  I promise not to turn you into the blog police but I did want you to know that you are each appreciated!

Next up is a highly entertaining award that I'd been hoping to get!  I received this one from fellow NC'ian Diane, author of the Circle of Friends series of books and professional speaker extraordinaire!  Thank you so much! 
First the rules:

1: Thank the person who gave you the award and link to them.
2: Add the award to your blog
3: Tell six outrageous lies about yourself and One Truth.
4: Nominate six creative liars... I mean writers and post links to them.
5: Let your nominees know that they have been nominated.


I, like Diane, am going to cheat a little.  I'm going to list four lies and one truth (how fun is this?) and nominate four other liars...I mean "writers". that.  Here we go:

1 - I've changed career paths four times so far, not that I'm counting or anything.
2 - Robert Pattinson will NOT stop calling me.  Anyone know how to block his number?
3 - Speaking of Robert, I would never go to a Twilight viewing wearing cheesy t-shirts.
4 - Dustin Pedroia nodded at me once during a game.  I took it as his acceptance that we were meant to be...I mean, if we both weren't already married and stuff.  He felt it.
5 - I once saw Stephen King running alongside the road on a visit to Maine.

So, my pretty's...guess away!

I will pass this fun award on to:

Moving on, uber-cool-fun girl Kim gave me this glittery fun award:

I've already received this one once so I'll refer you to here for my answers because I'm totally lazy like that.  What's that I hear?  A blog siren in the distance? 

Here's another VERY cool award I received recently from Jennifer.  I have to admit I love her (in a total we could be twins and not a stalking type way) so I was kind of honored to get an award from her...and impressed that she blogged so soon after returning from Disney World.  I might have slept for about a week to recover from all of the excitement:

This is a meme award and the rules for passing it on are:

1. Put the logo on your blog .
2. Add a link to the person who awarded you.
3. Award up to ten other blogs.
4. Add links to those blogs on yours.
5. Leave a message for your awardees on their blogs.

As Jennifer points out...the grammar on this one is a little off but it's still beautiful and I have a few cool blogs in mind to award this one to.  There are in my eyes a few that somehow ALWAYS manage to make me wonder why I have followers at all...they always have something moving and interesting:

And lastly tonight, but certainly not least, thanks to Jackee for the pretty-cheery-always-makes-me smile award.  I've also received this one previously so you can check out my answers here.

AND that officially ends my awards day round up!  Thanks again to everyone...I really do treasure each and every award (even if I do get a little behind on posting them!).  My computer troubles haven't been helping any.  This is possibly the longest post I have ever done...due to a VERY slow computer that is out of memory.  It's like it's begging to be replaced with a MAC....

Hope everyone is well out there in the blogosphere!!!


  1. Congrats on all the blog love. you deserve it!

  2. Congrats on the awards, wow, you are a popular gal. But of course I see why. And do you know why you have followers? Because you rock!!! Thanks for thinking of me, you are amazing!

  3. Look at all the wonderful awards!!! Fantastic! Congrats! Well deserved!

  4. Oh, thank you, my long lost twin!

    It's a shame we were separated at birth and all. LOL!

    I don't have that award so I'm doubly excited to get it. :)

  5. Congrats on your awards!
    My guess is number 5 is the truth!
    (and tell Robert to call me if he's bothering you ;)

  6. Thanks so much for the award, Kristi! :)

  7. I'm going to go with the "Saw Stephen King running along the side of the road" 'cuz how cool would that be?

    Love Stephen.

    Oh, and thanks for the award.

    Here's my post: "Creative Liar"

  8. Congrats on all the awards! And thank you for passing the butterfly award to me! That's super sweet. I "always have something moving" and interesting" I needed to read that today! Thanks a ton!!!


  9. Congrats on all the awards! And thank you for passing the butterfly award to me! That's super sweet. I "always have something moving" and interesting" I needed to read that today! Thanks a ton!!!


  10. Holy cow! That's a lot of very cool blog bling. Congrats on all of the awards. :-)

  11. Kristi.....aww.... you rock! And if Rob won't stop calling you give him my number.... please!!!!!!

    Congrats on your awards!

  12. Thank you! Although, I feel like you must not be reading my blog right if you are finding it moving and interesting--I try not to be either!

    As for your lies, I want to say 2 is the true one. It is, isn't it?

  13. Congrats to everyone. :D You all deserve it.

    And thank you for thinking of me, Kristi.

  14. # 3. And congrats of the award.

  15. Awwwww...Kristi, you are too kind. Thank you so much for thinking of me. You have no idea how much I love to lie...perfect award for me ;) Haha! I have actually received this one before, but a girl can never be overappreciated I say! So thank you, doll.

    And congrats on all your awards!! You are quite deserving.

    As for your lies, I'm torn. I really want #2 to be true, but #5 is soooo appealing! So, let's just say I believe one of these to be true, and the other one to pretty please be true. :)

  16. That's some list of awards! Congrats to you. As far as you truths/lie goes...I'm picking #1 as your truth, but I'm wondering about #5. You didn't by chance run him over with your van...did you?

    Thank you for my award...and resisting the temptation to tie and pretty pink ribbon around it. :) I truly do treasure it and I'll do my best to come up with some whoppers.

  17. Congrats on all your awards!Oh and just give Robert my number if he is bothering you ;)

  18. I don't like awards that make you work after getting them... lol.
    Hope the book sells do well, best of luck.

  19. Thanks for all the great comments and guesses everyone - so fun! Look at Friday's post for the answers!!!

  20. Thank you Kristi for my award, I really appreciate it! I think you are the one that always has something interesting going on! I like coming to your blog because you are so real and your humor makes me smile!
