7 Things About Me:
1- I don't really know to swim. I know the mechanics of it, I can do it, say... like at a water park, but no laps for me. I'll drown. I don't want to drown.
2- Except for my husband and my mother, my writing world is unknown to people that know me in person.
3- I like making cupcakes. I also like eating them, which is why I don't make them often.
4- I jog a minimum of 12 miles a week. (darn cupcakes)
5- Drivers who make turns without using their blinkers give me instant road rage. Grrrr...
6- Nicki Minaj and I were co-workers years ago... #truestory
7- I don't like uneven numbers so I'm just going to say 8. Done. (I feel better now)

My nominees:
I know you are all busy and some of you probably received one or both of these awards already. Feel free to choose one only if you want... but be warned that I wont like you as much as those who choose to accept both, just saying...  :D
(Yes, I'm kidding, relax!)


  1. Congratulations on all your awards! I'm totally awed at your 12 miles a week. Amazing :)

  2. Cupcakes! I like cupcakes too, mostly if they have fruit inside. Congratulations!

    1. Thank you Al.
      Anything with fruit is better ;)

  3. Congratulations on the awards.
    People who don't use their signals AND come to a complete stop before turning make me wish I had lasers on the front of my car.

    1. ooooh lasers... that's exactly what I need to help me with road rage!

  4. The award queen here :P

    So how was Nicki before?

    1. Nicki.. What I knew and what we see now are definitely night and day. She was a very sweet girl without the nasal voice and most importantly with normal hair. Very normal hair. But she did always say she would be famous one day...

  5. Thank you so much, S. K. You're the sweetest person I can imagine. No wonder I nominated you for the Super Sweet Award!! We both like working under the influence of coffee. My husband must be super human to give it up every Lent. Wishing you the best possible Mother's Day with your husband and your little Cherubs! I'll be thinking of you.

  6. Boy, I truly do wish I had the discipline you have (though not the bit of OCD)! Cupcakes (and I have to blame Cupcake Wars for this) are a down fall for me too. But I surely don't go running like you do. Send me some of that spirit so I will get back into exercising. Please!

    I can't believe your real life friends don't know about your secret life of a writer! Amazing.

    Thanks for your comments on my blog and for a great award again! Writer’s Mark

    1. Cupcake Wars sure make things more difficult lol

  7. You are spoiling me--thanks so much!

  8. Thanks for the nomination. I'm with you on the car signalling thing. As Alex says, lasers would be a great addition!

    1. I knew I liked you... and yes, Alex is a genius lol

  9. Love your answers! 12 miles a week! Nicki Minaj - that had to something - how is she in real life? I don't take her as a "nice" person just from the TV show.
    I HATE uneven numbers. I feel as though I'm not complete until whatever I've finished is even or of equal.

  10. Thanks for the nomination! I will get to it I promise and I totally appreciate the award :) Okay so Nicki Minaj...pretty cool!!! Not a fan of hers personally but love her music.

    I like even numbers too. I am a very symmetrical person. Even when decorating my home, if I have a candle on one side of a picture I have to put the same candle on the other side! Probably why God gave you twins!

    Oh no, I just found our first ever difference...I have a lap pool in my backyard and swim in it all the time. Time for you to take a trip to Chicago! Margaritas poolside S.K :)
