Sweet! An Award!

All my bitchin' has caused an itchin'. My dear Blogger Friend FireByrd has sent me an Award! It is my first :D I am a happy camper and can now die peacefully knowing I have recognition!

I am very honored and yes I will play!

So, here we go:

The award is the Kreativ Blogger award and the rules are:

1. Thank the person who nominated you for this award.
Thank you FireByrd!!! I am so tickled and I feel validation! You are so kind & I do love reading your Blog.

2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog.

3. Link to the person who nominated you for this award.
Okay, lets see if I do this correct:

4. Name 7 things about yourself that people might find interesting.
hmm. not easy.
I blog about myself, so, much of this may be known.

1~I grew up with a Father that was Handicapped
2~I spent my summers from 12 - 17 yrs old, with my Grandparents in Texas
3~ I learned to drive in graveyards, with a stick shift car
4~I went to college @ Vincennes University to become a Special Ed Teacher, but ran out of money & had to drop out.
5~I worked at The Indiana School for the Deaf and know Sign Language
6~I almost married the wrong guy (Thank God that DIDN'T happen!)
7~My Husband STILL makes me giddy & I am more in love today than the day we married.

5. Nominate 7 Kreativ Bloggers.
Several come to mind but I am going to hit Bloggers that haven't received Blogging awards to my knowledge.

1~ Sheri from Riley Writings
Because of her, I started my Blog. She rocks my world! Bestie~Lifer

2~Mark from Pirate's Bay
I know Mark from High School, and found him again through BlogWorld. He is one of the best writers! And reminds me of Sergio. These guys will truly be friends if we ever get together!

3~Pam from Scott's Place
My first BlogWorld friend. I love her Blog! I love her. I feel like she is my long lost friend. She has talent oozing from her fingers. Crafts, culinary, sister animal lover, and can make me laugh till I snort!

4~Brooke from Brookies Cookie Jar
She makes me feel like family. I LOVE her photo journals of her loving family. She also educates me on tours. It's like a mini vacation or a visit for coffee when I stop by her corner of BlogWorld.

5~Linda from Over The Fence
My awesome, smart, Laura Ingalls twin~ oh are you sure we are not sisters separated at birth Blog Friend. Linda has a wonderful writing gift that takes me back...sometimes listening to her tell of her daughter and her relationships and situations (oh I hear you! I was just there not so long ago!) and sometimes she takes me back to my youth. Pictures and all. Oh my, Linda, I remember that too!

6~Wizz from An English Shepard
a charming true story of a United Kingdom English Shepard puppy's journey into adulthood. Her many adventures. Seeing things through her eyes. And educating us on her breed. I find it enchanting. She is beautiful, her story is so worthy to check out.

7~Nathan, my Young Rocker from Nathan's Blog
This is where to go to get inside a college man's head. He is bright, funny, can play the guitar, write music, sing, and he happens to bring smiles to my youngest daughter as her boyfriend. He is super-busy, but worth being patient for. Because when he writes, you will smile!

6. Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate.
see above

7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know they have been nominated.
Whew! this is taking me forever. Okay let me go let my peeps know!

Thank you again FireByrd. You made my day. Sorry to everyone for my whining all the time. I love BlogWorld. It is my venting, am I crazy or what~ thank you for making me feel normal world.

Good Night y'all!

Fire Byrd said...

OH I'm so pleased to have given you your first award, and that you enjoyed playing with it so much.

Linda said...

Wow, Janis!! Congratulations and I love your list!! :) And THANK YOU SO MUCH for passing along the award to me - It is indeed the first true award I've received, though someone gave me some other thing long ago now that wasn't really an award, but some sort of tag. I'll proudly add this to my sidebar and will try to pass it along soon as well.

Thank you very much, I can now say I am an award winning writer, Hemingway has nothing on me!
I do like it and plan to give it the credit it is due I am in Florida now and not use to this new computer but will get it moved over and answered correctly has soon as I have completed my Honey Do List.

You are the one that has earned the award your honesty is absolutely the bravest thing I have ever witnessed. Keep it up, we all get our therapy in different ways I believe you have found your path and think it will lead to big things for you.

I am semi retired and having fun with my Blog. I think am leaving notes to my future generations so they know who I was. Not that I am going any where it is my plan to spend my kids inheritance.

Funny you said something about getting together I have been thinking about that same thing. I have three ideas and maybe we do all three or none not sure. First I can cook a pig like no other I used to do old fashion pig roasts and have been missing it. Nancy always gets nervous about these get tog ether's because of me being me I will want three hundred people to come and have some type of potential disaster to occur so not sure If I can sell this event to her if I do I would want you guys and some of our mutual friends to come. Or the next two ideas is a question do you guys like the Pacers or The Colts? We have floor seats to the Pacers and pretty good seats to the Colts we could all go to a game if you like?

Good for you on your award very deserved!
