Award Speeches are so…cue music


Award Speeches are so AWESOME, I mean who doesn’t enjoy a good award show?  Well at minimum I watch for the fashion and ogle my favorite <insert noun, per award show appropriate>.  🙂

I was nominated for the Very Inspiring Blogging Award from Melissa Barker-Simpson.  So immediately I shared this nomination with my kids who for the last days of school are bring home all kinds of awards – see ol’ Mom gets noticed from time to time too.  I think my 9 yr old just rolled her eyes.  No, seriously this was quite a nice surprise and I thank Melissa for the recognition.

If you like to write and be inspired, certainly check out Melissa’s page.  It’s a fun one with contests, prompts and tips – a good one for writers looking to connect and stretch your creative bone and those finger tips on the key board.

The rules of accepting the Very Inspiring Blogger Award are:

7 Interesting Things about Me:

1. I have a fascination with sharks, I know more than the usual novice and shark week is like being in a candy store for me.  I’m excited and terrified all at the same time. (Cuz you know, candy – sugar; rotten teeth – ewe!)

2. I have the genetic gene that allows me to flip my tongue over to each side, and have passed that beauty of a gene onto my daughters – nope husband can’t do it, cracks us all up.

3. I can type over 75 words a minute without looking at the keyboard.  My mother made me take a typing class (I moaned about it at the time) to have something to fall back on – who knew, I’d use it everyday with the computer.  The woman was genius!

4. I own, 3 Kindles.  Yep the newest one is a PaperWhite Kindle and my total favorite.  My teen and husband have adopted the older models.  Can someone have too many books or eReaders? I think not!  Yes, I’m also guilty of having a hard back copy and eBook copy of the same book (doesn’t everyone?).

5.  I have lived in 10 states and 2 countries so far in my life.  My top choices where I’ve lived so far; Germany, Florida, Tennessee, Kansas and Oklahoma – fond memories that have really shaped me.  Someday I may live in Italy too 🙂 Come on lottery ticket!

6. My all time favorite TV shows, in which I own DVDs for are: Smallville and Boston Legal.  I’ve been watching Smallville again lately, Superman is awesome!  Tom Welling isn’t too bad to look at either, purrr.

7. I love Mike Rowe’s voice, doesn’t matter what he’s narrating that my husband is watching (Dirty Jobs, Deadiest Catch,  Paint drying on a wall) – I will find it interesting because his voice is swoon worthy.  Sorry Morgan Freeman, Mike’s an opera trained manly man and funny to boot.  Mike sing me a lullaby… total bucket list wish right there!

Not all the deepest darkest secrets shared, but hope they were at least interesting enough your still here, but I hear the music in the background so thank you for enjoying my nomination and if you don’t follow me regularly come on and do so – what could it hurt? 🙂
