Kick start Monday - Rewarding

I love awards! I love receiving, but I love rewarding more!


Last week, I got two more awards. Thank you, Cherie for the Brilliant Blogger award - new to me, yay! And Ruth who bestowed the Irresistably Sweet award, yay!





I will go ahead and list 7 obligatory fun facts, but with my own twist...

Costume Memories
1. First Halloween costume I remember, was Boo Berry
2. In 3rd grade I danced in a purple and white polka dot outfit
3. In my first musical, I was a singing camel
4. In my last musical I was the evil queen mother in Princess and the Pea
5. When I got older I loved making my own Halloween costumes, one year I was Calvin with my homemade, stuffed Hobbes
6. Another year I was the blue M n M (I never went for the sexy costumes)
7. In college I was Cleopatra

These days I just put on a witch hat and black lipstick. No one really gets into the Halloween spirit at my house but me. Ho hum...

And now I get to pass on these wonderful awards to some friends...

The Irresistably Sweet award goes to:
Julie @ rosewood pencil box - she has a cute blogfest going on right now!
Laura @ the Daily Dodo
Krista @ the Jellybeans of Writing
MJ @ My Pet Blog

The Brilliant Blogger award I am sending to:
Christine Rains - Writer
Chandara Writes
Amy @ the Ramblings of Amy
E R King @ Get Busy Writing - join her blogfest for Killer Characters!

And if you're still reading, I may add a drabble for Aheila's Drabble Day...

You really are a fantastic blogger!

I wish I had more money and time to do Halloween right. I would love to do a haunted house with gravestones on the lawn kind of thing.

Of course I'm still reading!

Congrats on the awards! I love your Halloween-themed seven things! I wear a witch hat and black lipstick now, too. :)

Heather Henry said...

Congrats on your awards, as always, you are very deserving of such goodies.
I love the costumed fun facts..especially the pic of you as Calvin. Very clever. I was a green M&M once, I loved that costume, I dearly love M&M's. Despite the lack of costumed enthusiasm in your house, you should just go all out, get crazy, have fun. :)

Thank you for the shout out! It's really very sweet of you.
