Stylish Blogger Award

A couple of weeks ago, Scott from the amazing blog TheFoodieSpot sent me the Stylish Blogger Award. I love TheFoodieSpot for its tantalizing recipes, quips and posts that make me smile and even bring a tear to the eye as well (Bubby Kitty.)

As a newbie blogger, I was incredibly touched and giddy. I have had many technical difficulties of late with the blog, due to my own ineptitude. In addition, I had put blogging on the backburner as much of my waking hours have been consumed with a combination of obligations…domestic and a huge freelance project.

However, it is high time I finish this post, which has been sitting in draft for two weeks. To Scott, I truly thank you for this. 

Of course, with anything there is a bit more, including a few rules which were explained as such:

The Stylish Blogger Requirements are:
1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Award 15 recently discovered great bloggers.
4. Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award!

Seven things you may or may not know about me:

  • I work at least one crossword puzzle daily. My father did the same. I think it’s genetic.
  • I have only filled my car with gas, once in 3 years since my husband spoils me in all matters regarding the cars.
  • Disney World is and always will be my personal Happy Place.
  • I have read the Harry Potter series (the entire series) fourteen times.
  • I have never cooked brisket.
  • I would love to keep my Christmas tree up year-round but conform and disassemble by Jan.1.
  • The concert version of the musical Chess is my favorite music to have on when writing.

Rule three says I need to award 15 bloggers with the Stylish Blogger Award. I can do that, but sincerely it is SO hard to choose just 15 as we all know there are so many great blogs out there. The fifteen I’ve chosen are blogs I personally read and follow. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Again, a big thanks to Scott at The Foodie Blog and to everyone that has offered great advice for a new blogger just taking her first steps on the road to adventure. Oh, and if you've already received the Stylish Blogger Award from another, kudos to you for being ultra-stylish!

Smiles! Barb
