Kick start Monday - I'm Irresistable! and a blogfest!

hahaha
But thanks, Carolyn! She thinks I'm sweet =) She sent me this:
so now I will do the honorable things:
> thank giver, Thanks again, Carolyn!
> list 7 things about me:
  1. I used to be afraid of bees until I had kids and didn't want to pass along that fear
  2. I wore saddle shoes as a kid to correct my feet turning in
  3. I fell down a flight of stairs at 3yo causing 2 black eyes and one turned in so I've been wearing glasses since then (took a break when I was a teenager until I turned 30)
  4. First kiss at a racquetball court
  5. First real kiss at a pizza hut =)
  6. My younger sister and I learned to ride our bikes at the same time, my oldest son and his younger brother also learned at the same time (we older sibs are more cautious)
  7. My eyes are green/hazel (boring, but I've had to come up with a lot of facts!)
> and pass it on...hmmm. to 15?! let's see. I'm trying to send awards to those I haven't sent to ...
  1. Allison Writes
  2. Beckah-Rah
  3. Believing in Miracles
  4. Random Thoughts
  5. Christa Writes
  6. Coffee and a Keyboard
  7. Doc Nani's Thoughts
  8. Everything you didn't want to know about writing
  9. Imagine Today
  10. Junebug's Musings
  11. Laugh Quotes
  12. Nicki Elson's Not-so-deep thoughts
  13. Weaving a Tale or Two
  14. What else is possible?
  15. Writer in Transit
Julie at What else is possible, advertised this blogfest sponsored by Alex J Cavanaugh (you may remember him as one of the A-Z blogfest hosts). To participate, list our 3 favorite games and why then advertise and visit other blogs, sounds fun! Here are mine:
Scrabble - I can play anywhere and I can beat the computer
Scene It - I love trivia! I like playing those video trivia games at Buffalo Wild Wings too. (I was going to put trivial pursuit, but some of those questions are ridiculous!)
Volleyball - I'm short and we never play, but it's still my favorite active game

And lastly, I had my query letter put up for critique on Unicorn Bell, if you'd like to see and there are a couple more as well. There is a lot of good advice there! Whew, what a Monday!

FirstTimeMom said...

Thanks for the award Tara! :)

allison said...

Aw wow, thanks for the award!

Nicki Elson said...

Why thank you for the award. :) I was a late bloomer in the bike riding department too!

Scrabble is very popular today---no surprise w/ all these writers, huh? What you lack in height I'm sure you make up for in enthusiasm on the Volleyball court. ;)

Donna K. Weaver said...

Hmm ... first kiss at a Racketball court, huh? I'd love to know more of that story.

We love all the games you life, though we usually played Wallyball at our local fitness center. Harry Potter Scene It didn't make it with us because we're all such HP geeks. =D

Thanks so much for the award! My first kiss was at the ice rink.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

I'm up for a game of Scene It!
Thanks for participating in the blogfest.

M Pax said...

Love Scrabble. Would like to try scene-it, but would probably stink at it. lol Unless it's old sci-fi movies and shows.

I used to love volleyball when I was young.

Beckah-Rah said...

Oo! Thanks for the award! Now I have something interesting to blog about today, lol! (bows)

Dorothy Evans said...

Ha, volleyball - I tried but could never shake the instinct to catch!

Rhonda at Laugh Quotes said...

Thanks for the award, however I think you may have made an error. Irresistibly Sweet . . . me . . . ?
whatever - LOL. Anyway great minds think alike. I write a day in advance, so my yesterday's writing and today's post proclaims, I hereby dub thee “Overlord” – a blogger changing the world one post at a time. Please come by and pick up your award. I linked my name to the post.

L.G.Smith said...

Yep, Scrabble is one of my favorites too. Never tried Scene it. And I was a volleyball player in high school even though I'm pretty short in comparison to most girls who play.

Huntress said...

hm...define 'real kiss'.

BWHHAHAAAA

Congrats on your Irresistibly Sweet award. I definitely concur.

Theresa Milstein said...

I'd love to have hazel eyes. Mine are brown.

Visit my blog because your question has been answered by Elana Johnson!

C R Ward said...

Thank you so much for the award Tara!

Julie said...

Thank you so much for the award, Tara, that's so nice of you!! Love your game choices, Scene It is so much fun.

baygirl32 said...

Bryce Daniels said...

Scrabble is a CLASSIC.

You ever play "Literati" on Yahoo?
I've lost hours to that game. Sheesh.

Thanks for sharing!

cherie said...

Congrats on your award!

I like Scrabble. I'm short too so I sucked at volleyball. I just can't hit it high enough. :)

Nicole Zoltack said...

Congrats on your award!

I like to play volleyball even though I'm only ok at it. I'm definitely on the short side so that doesn't help any.

K.C. Woolf said...

Congratulations on the award! :-)

I used to play a bit of volleyball, many years ago, but I was never any good.

Scrabble's fun too!

MISH said...

Aw thanks so much for the award TTT ~ the only problem is , at this stage , I don't think I know 15 bloggers to pass it on to ... I may be able to pass it on to about 8 ?
