Someone (other than my mom) Thinks I'm Special

I got a blogger award. Isn't it cute? Thank you Grace!

In order to post this on my blog I have to answer ten questions and then have six of you do the same. Then you have to answer the questions...tag...etc...etc....

Here goes nothing....

1.If you blog anonymously, are you happy doing it that way; if you are not anonymous do you wish you had started out anonymously so you could be anonymous now?

I started out anonymous, and it's not like I go around shouting from the rooftops that I have a blog. I'm happy where I'm at.

2. Describe one incident that shows your inner stubborn side.

One?? Inner??

3. What do you see when you really look at yourself in the mirror?

Me! And I'm happy with that.

4. What is your favorite summer cold drink?

Ginger lemonade

5. When you take time for yourself, what do you do?

I like to drink tea and listen to the sound of silence.....it rarely happens.

6. Is there something you still want to accomplish in your life? What is it?

I want to raise my children to be healthy, joyful, loving adults, who are content. I think contentment is better than being famous, or rich, becoming a lawyer, or a mother of 20 children....go get some....errr...contentment that is...

7. When you attended school, were you the class clown, the class overachiever, the class shy person, or always ditching school?

Oh my goodness...what year? I went to a school for the gifted in elementary school (ya, I don't know what happened there) so we were all overachievers. I don't think I was ever shy, I may have been a little of a clown.

8. If you close your eyes and want to visualize a very poignant moment in your life, what do you see?

Holding my children. There have been several moments throughout my kids lives where I have held them in my arms and thought, "This is it, if I die and look back on my life, I doubt I will have any moments more wonderful than this on earth." It's a feeling of overwhelming thankfulness, joy, and contentment.

9. Is it easy for you to share your true self in your blog or are you more comfortable writing posts about other people or events?

Oh heck no...I have trouble sharing my true self with people I have known for years. I actually have an easier time on my blog because I can read over my words. I'm not the spill emotional vomit all willy nilly sort of person. You will see one or two personal blogs, but there is a reason I have a food blog. I do try to be truthful. I share what I liked, didn't like, what worked, didn't etc...however I think truthful, and true self are two different things.

10. If you had the choice to sit and read or talk on the phone, which would you do and why?
Let me tell you a secret....I absolutely hate talking on the phone. I only do it because distance necessitates. If I talk to you on the phone it is because I love you more than I hate talking on the phone. . It goes back to the willy nilly emotional vomit thing, coupled with the fact that I am almost always doing something. I would much rather see someone in person. I love to read though. When I'm on bed rest I usually go through quite a few books.

Ooooh, almost forgot to tag people. I was so in awe of the awesomeness of some of my answers.

I'm going to choose a few people who I haven't seen blog in a while....because I miss reading your blogs. If you aren't blogging because you don't wish to, feel free to write me an email and kindly tell me to get lost. I struggled to pick out people who a.) actually read my blog, and b.) will actually respond. There are quite a few people out there with blogs I adore. I would give them all an award if I could....in fact...hmmm...ok, keep me accountable to this....By the end of September I will update my blog to show more blogs in the "stuff I like" section. Keep an eye out for that. For now, here are the winners.


  1. Loved reading you answers and your right. I do think your special!

  2. oh my gosh! you tagged me and i missed it! ok i am going to do it now :)
