Versatile Blogger!

I won an award, I won an award!  Or more accurately, I was nominated an award by a sister blogger, which is still super exciting to me!  I have not been blogging very long, so please excuse my lack of composure and coolness!  :-)

Thank you to "A Shadow of My Former Self" over at Singular Desire for nominating me, you made my week!

These are the rules:

1.  Winners grab the image above and put it in your blog.
2.  Link back to the person who gave you it.
3.  Tell 10 things about yourself
4.  Award 15 recently discovered bloggers.
5.  Contact the bloggers you have awarded to let them know they have won.

Ten things about me:
  1. I love fiery Cheetos but try not to indulge too often.
  2. My sense of smell is extremely sharp and I can’t get enough of sweet smelling flowers.
  3. My first “real” kiss was so awful I went inside and cried into my pillow (he never got any better but I later learned it wasn’t always like that)
  4. I enjoy watching quirky dramatic cable shows like ‘Big Love,’ ‘Bored to Death,’ and ‘United States of Tara.'
  5. I got a tabby cat named Moxie my senior year of college who lived until she was 17; we were like an old married couple.
  6. When Moxie died, I decided I was not going to get another cat because I wanted to focus all my energy on bringing a child into my life and home.  (plus I wanted a break from all the cat litter)
  7. I have an adorable 3-year-old niece and one-year-old nephew who I love and every time I visit them, my heart breaks when I leave.

  8. I did gymnastics for four and a half years until I was 15-years-old, which I believe delayed my period until that time.
  9. I love craft projects and making cards but can only seem to motivate to do them for holidays or special occasions/gifts.
  10. My birth Mom died when I was four, and my Dad remarried the following year - this makes my younger sister and brother technically "half" siblings, but when people say that I want to punch them.

My nominees are: (sorry I could only come up with 10 right now)

Skating on the Edge


  1. Thanks for the nomination. My life is slightly crazy, and soon to be even more so. Glad you're following along.

  2. Congrats, Kristina, and thanks for the nomination!

  3. Thank you for the nomination. I have completed it. Also thanks for the help with the links. Mission accomplished. Now I need to tell the people I nominated. What to say!! LOL

  4. Thanks for the award! I'm a cat person too, but waiting to finally settle down properly before getting another one :)

  5. Congrats on your award! I want another cat too!

  6. I got a tabby cat the summer after I graduated college - she lived until she was 15 and I adored her. Tabbies are the best.

  7. Hi fellow cat women! :-) I think y'all are yearning for another cat more than me. I actually have no desire right now! I loved my Moxie, may she RIP, but I'm okay with being catless on my current path. We'll see what the future holds. . .
    Thanks for all the award Congrats, it was exciting for me. hee hee
