Very Inspiring Blog Award

blog awardThe very sweet and talented Joleene Naylor has nominated me for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award.  If you happen to like vampires, romance and thriller, then I think you’ll enjoy her books.  She mixes all three elements, and the books are intended for adults due to the violent and sexual content.  I like the unique spin she has on the vampire world and some of the twists she throws in her books.  😀

Okay.  Now for the award…

The Rules of the Award are as follows:

  1. Display the award logo on your blog.
  2. Link back to the person who nominated you.
  3. State 7 things about yourself.
  4. Nominate 15 bloggers for this award and link to them.
  5. Notify those bloggers of the nomination and the award’s requirements.

In keeping with the rules here are seven random things about me right now – yes, you get the randomness in REAL TIME!

  • I am watching Drake & Josh on Nickelodeon.  (I still enjoy watching teen TV shows, especially those on Nickelodeon.  And personally, if I was a teenage girl, I’d pick Josh over Drake because Josh is responsible, loyal, and sweet.)
  • I finished my writing word count goals for the day, which is so awesome considering I haven’t been able to achieve this feat for two months.  (Finally, I’m back in a writing routine!)
  • I’m about to write 500 more words for Runaway Bride and *fingers crossed* Mitch’s Win.   I’m hoping to finish the first draft for Mitch’s Win this month and Runaway Bride next month.  (Wish me luck!)
  • My four kids are currently behaving so I don’t have to get up to do anything.  (Yay!)
  • My husband is upstairs playing Cribbage, so I can watch a teen TV show.  😀
  • My weakness is soda, especially Sprite/7 Up/Sierra Mist.  That’s going to be my biggest hinderance in losing weight.
  • I want to lose weight so I don’t get diabetes (runs in my family).

And now I must nominate 15 bloggers for this award.  (Or in my case, 5.  I guess point 8 about me would be, “I’ve never been popular.” LOL)

  1. Love your seven random facts! I like teen shows too, and teen books for that matter. i think they’re fun. 🙂 And I am with you on the soda! We quit for a few months but are back again…

    • Yep, there’s something about the teen stuff that is fun. Maybe it’s a reminder of the time in our lives where we didn’t have bills to pay and other adult responsibilities to worry about. I loved that period of my life. 😀 Watching the shows and even reading the books takes me back to that happy time.

      I’m glad I’m not alone on the soda thing. I go through cycles of quitting, too. hehe

  2. Thanks for nominating me! I’ll have to think about this for a bit before I post.

    • I had to think about it, too. It was harder to come up with random (in the moment) things than I’d thought it’d be. LOL I look forward to seeing what you come up with!
