~ One Lovely Blog Award & Creative Chaos Award ~

I have recently been doubly honored in receiving my second “One Lovely Blog Award” from danblava at hurdlestohappiness. Thank you so much!!

(See below for the rules and nominations for the One Lovely Blog Award)

Also from Michelle at michellesomer.wordpress.com – I have been honored with the “Creative Chaos Award” Thank you so much to both of you for keeping me in your thoughts for these awards!! I am so very appreciative!

(See below for the rules and nominations for the Creative Chaos Award)

One Lovely Blog Award ~

1)    I need to thank the person who nominated me.

2)    Share 7 things about myself that you still may not know.

3)    Nominate 15 bloggers.

4)    Notify the nominees that I have done so.

5)    Put a logo of the award on my site.

 I already shared 7 things – but I’ll share another 7 things you may not know about me…

1)    I love to knit – when I have the time…it’s very relaxing…like therapy.

2)    I really really love to play video games, with my kids or my friends!

3)    I drive an old ’93 Suburban and I love it – Respect on the road!

4)    I named my dog (Pomeranian) Dante not just for the author but also because I love the movie Dante’s Peak.

Dante ~

5)    I love destruction of the earth movies like 2012, The Day After Tomorrow, and more – not sure why…maybe because they are so unrealistic (not the graphics-the storylines) and I’ve had my fair share of ‘reality’.

6)    I never want to mow the lawn (it’s big) but always LOVE the feeling of accomplishment when I’m done!

7)    Ok, ok, ok….so more information on the video game thing. My best friend and I often play Rock Band 3 (I’m the drummer) – It is a most cherished time to relax, be silly, laugh, and pretend we’re rock stars!

And now my nominees for the One Lovely Blog Award – Visit them if you get the chance! 🙂

Creative Chaos Award Rules ~

1)   I mention 3 weird things about myself

1)    I’m a cheese-a-holic

2)    I love naming my animals’ weird names – i.e. my orange cat is named Julius, and my oldest female cat is named Sawyer – her brother who is no longer with us was named Thomas.

3)    I love the colors black and purple (but not together!)

2)   Are you a glass half empty or a glass half full kind of person?

Most definitely a glass half full kind of person. I believe that I can find a positive in just about every negative situation. I may rant a bit…but then I just have to find something to laugh or joke about. Sometimes, I wonder where the glass is, as I am convinced someone moved it!

3)   You find yourself in a desolate place when your car breaks down. You have no cell phone service, no Wal-Mart, and only a candy bar for food. It is 150 miles to the closest town. What color are your underpants and why?

Since this is probably THE most bizarre question I’ve ever been asked I will answer bizarrely in return – Purple – because aliens don’t wear hats. 😉

4)   And the last task is to nominate 5 bloggers who have recently started following you.

1)    http://1twistedpixie.wordpress.com

2)    http://tchistorygal.wordpress.com

3)    http://thoughtfulnd.wordpress.com

4)    http://ratzone.wordpress.com

5)    http://quotography.wordpress.com

Congratulations to everyone! I hope these bring you the smiles they did me!! 🙂 ~

    • Robyn, you are so sweet! 🙂 Thank you for the congratulations! It was fun being quirky…I’ve been having a little writers block recently…wanting to write something more, uplifting. So this was fun!! 😀 Love, Hugs and Blessings!! ~


      • but i didnt understand how to post the logo of award on the main page of blog … can u help me 🙂


        • I just figured it out myself, but I will try! Okay….so have two windows open, one with the One Lovely Blogger post showing and in the other window you want to be at your dashboard —

          Click Appearance –then choose Widgets.
          Once your there you will choose the Image’ widget by clicking ‘add” on the Image widget. It will open a little window and ask you for the URL for your image. That’s where the other window you have open with your One Lovely Blog post showing comes in handy.

          Go to it and click on the URL (web address of that page) and copy it.

          Now go back to the other window and paste that address into the Image Widget URL section.

          Follow the other directions in that Image WIdget and click finish or upload or ….can’t remember what it says. Then go to your One Lovely Blog window and hit refresh…it should be there!

          If that was super confusing I’ll aplogize now and give you this link to the WordPress site that helped me figure it out. If you copy and paste the below web address it walks you through step by step.


          Good Luck! I hope that was helpful!!! 🙂

  1. Ha! I love disaster movies… especially the end-of-the-world ones… being 2012 an’ all, I’m on a kinda marathon right now… finished Dr Strangelove the other night… watched the original Day The Earth Stood Still a few weeks back… and then The Day The Earth Caught Fire shortly after… if you don’t know it, look it up.. it’s an old British film from when we still made movies – the 1960’s – the science is silly, of course, but the writing is top-notch and socially realistic… you’ll see what I mean….


    • Those are the best ones!!! My kids laugh at me now…”Mom’s having another Destruction of The Earth Marathon” Of course 2012 is usually on the menu LOL!! :p I love the original Day the Earth Stood Still!! I’m totally gonna check out the movie you recommended…sounds awesome 😀


  2. 2012, Independence Day, Daylight, all brilliant. Disaster movies are excellent. Except if they are the cheesy rip off ones – 2012: Doomsday, Battle FOR Los Angeles, but there again, they can be hilarious for all the wrong reasons 😉

    You astound me with being a glass half full person. It shows your strength.
