Happy Nappers

Now, if you know what those things are, you probably have the song stuck in your head - and it's way worse than Celebrate =)

But I have to give a BIG shout back to Donna McNicol who honored me again with her own NAPPING BLOGGER AWARD! Ha!

She showed her creative side by not only making this award, but offering it in a rainbow of colors!
Here are the easy rules for the award that you could do in your sleep:
  1. Link back to the one who gave you the award (in this case, it's ME!)
  2. Tell us what you do to take time for YOU! That might be a hobby, a musical break, a favorite movie or show, sitting outside enjoying nature, or even taking a nap!
  3. Nominate five other bloggers - especially folks you think deserve a break from their routine.
To take time for me, I like to write, read, catch up on shows, and walk the dog. I don't get much time to myself, so when I do it's usually to write or to that end.

These are the five happy nappers I pass this on to...
Leigh Covington - always thinking of others, could use a break.
Emily King - just had a baby, she needs a nap!
Cherie Reich - just finished hosting a flash fiction blogfest, also needs a nap.
Lady Gwen - she just created a new blog, needs a rest.
Jaycee DeLorenzo - working like crazy and about to host a blog hop, could use a nap.

And one more thing! Found this fun Your Story contest on Writer's Digest. Write the first sentence for the picture below (25 words or less). That's all! It's free and it's going on all summer - you should try it!

Here's my entry:

As dawn broke through the darkness, I knew they hadn't destroyed the atmosphere generator, yet.

Hey, that's me! Yay! I don't have one of those awards - so cool. Thanks for thinking of me, Tara:)

Nick Wilford said...

What a cute award and a great idea. Congrats! No, I don't know what Happy Nappers are and I'm not hearing the song - should I be glad? Great first sentence too - love the idea of the atmosphere generator.

Ermie said...

Ooops! I just gave you another award, but I guess that's good if means you get to take some time to write, right? ;-)

Nicki Elson said...

That is an adorable award - sounds like you gave it to some deserving, overworked bloggers.

Thanks for the tip on the contest - it actually reminded me of an impending deadline for a local contest I'm supposed to enter, yipes!

Jaycee DeLorenzo said...

There's something on my blog for YOU!

mshatch said...

I like your 25 words! And I saw that in my mag as well :)

Tara Tyler said...

Donna did a great job on the award!

And thanks for the compliments on the sentence =)

Christine, I'd like to hear yours!

Nick, no you don't, annoying (they're like pillow pets)

Thanks in advance, Ernie & Jaycee!

Nicki, glad I could help!

Marcy, did you try it?

Leigh Covington said...

Oh man! I totally needed this! What a fun idea for an award. I've been totally MIA lately, and it's bumming me out.

I will pass it on next week! :) Have a great weekend!
