Don't Hate Me Because I'm Fabulous!

Thanks to Laura at My Baffling Brain for giving me three great awards!  Her blog is one of my favorites to read, and Laura is also a FABULOUS name!  I swear I'm not biased. Yes, the L in L.G. does stand for Laura, but that doesn't make me biased, I swear!

Anyway, without further adieu, here are the awards.

Here are the rules:
1. Post the rules on your blog.
2. Name five of your most fabulous moments, either in real life or in the blogosphere.
3. Name five things you love.
4. Name five things you hate.
5. Pass the Ribbon on to five other bloggers. (Leave them a comment to notify them of this.)

Here are my fabulous moments.  I might not always seem fabulous while immersed in a fabulous moment, but oh well.

5 Most Fabulous Moments

  1. Graduating from Drake University
  2. Marrying my wonderful husband.
  3. The birth of my son Jude.
  4. The birth of my son Lyle.
  5. Traveling through Europe.
5 Things I Love
  1. My family.
  2. Coffee.
  3. Writing.
  4. Stargazing.
  5. Sunsets.
5 Things I Hate
  1. Getting up early.
  2. Paying bills. Ucky!
  3. Being sick.
  4. Running late (which happens more than I'd like since I hate getting up early).
  5. Writer's block.

Next, I've been given the Stylish Blogger Award.  I've received this one before, so you can go HERE to read about the last time I dressed up.  However, in accepting this award, I will tell you about the most dressed up I've ever been.

It may come as no shock, but the most dressed up I've ever been was at my wedding. If there was ever an occasion to be dressed up, that was it.

Now for the last award.  Since I recently received this award, I wouldn't have to go through this process again, but I love a lot of books.  I can easily name a few more favorites, so I'll go ahead and do just that.  To see the books I chose the first time around, go HERE.

The rules for this award:
This award is for book bloggers only. To receive this award the blog must be at least 50% about books (reading or writing is okay).
Along with receiving this award, you must also share your top five favorite books you have ever read. (More than five is okay)
You must give this award to 5-10other lucky book blogs you adore. 

  1. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
  2. I, Robot by Isaac Asimov
  3. Stranger in a Strange Land  by Robert Heinlein
  4. Ringworld by Larry Niven
  5. Childhood's End by Arthur C. Clarke
  6. Rendezvous With Rama by Arthur C. Clarke
An odd number to choose, but these are what came to mind, and I didn't want to knock one off to have an even 5.  I guess I'm a rebel like that!

Now to choose awesome blogs to award.  You can take all of these awards that you like.  Here we go!
