Cassie @ Cassie Mae gifted me with this awesomeness of an award.

The "Rules":

3.       Name five things you love.
4.       Name five things you hate.
5.       Pass the Ribbon on to five other bloggers.

  Fabulous Moments:
Birth of my kids
My wedding
Vacation to … well … every vacay
The zombie 5k I’m doing 6/23 (I know it hasn’t happened yet but I know I’ll love it)
The moment I realized that I don’t care what people think of me and that I love who I am!

Love: besides God, family & friends…
True Blood
My phone
Dystopian books/movies
Debit Card

Love triangles
Chick flicks unless they are comical

Jaycee @ Jaycee DeLorenzo awarded me the Stylish Blogger Award!

For this one, we’re supposed to share the last time we dressed up.

I dress up every day for work but the last time I actually wore something uber fabulous would have been for … well … probably my company’s Christmas party.

I award everyone that doesn't have either of these. Awards have been flying around the blogosphere lately and I can't keep up of who got what.

Thanks to both of you for thinking of me. You both Rock with your C-- nope, you don't have one of those. So I guess you both Rock B-- nope, you don't have those either... hmmmm. You know where I'm going with this. Right?!

Don't forget our upcoming Bloghop June 12th and 14th!

Jackie @ Bouquet of Books and I are hosting the First Fight/First Kiss Blogfest

Why is it perfect?

While Jackie adores the kissing and hand holding scenes, I’m the “give me fat lips and magical dueling any day of the week” type girl, the bloodier the better. Though Jackie also likes fight scenes; I HATE to write love scenes. I find it difficult to get in touch with my soft side. This blogfest forces many of us to work on other scenes that we may not like and make them shine.

Also what happens after a good argument? - Making up!

Share your 1st FIGHT and 1st KISS scenes in your MS’s or WIP’s. Crack open your current project or dive back into an old one. We want to feel what your characters feel. From the sting of their first fist-to-the-face to the tingling taste of their first kiss.

If you’re not a writer, please share with us your real life firsts. We want to read and experience them all!

The First Fight/First Kiss blogfest will go as such: 

  • Post 1 will be on Tuesday, June 12 - Share with us your 1st FIGHT scene on your blog. It can be physical or verbal, fists or magic, vampires or zombies, fictional or non-fictional. Whichever you want to share.
  • Post 2 will be on Thursday, June 14 - Share with us your 1st KISS scene on your blog. It can be a peck on the cheek or a full fledge kissing session. Whatever you would like to tell us.

Details for the First Fight/First Kiss blogfest:

  • Follow Jackie @ Bouquet of Books & myself if you haven’t already. (We will follow back)
  • Sign up using the linky thingie below.
  • Display the gorgeous First Fight/First Kiss Blogfest button on your blog. Go grab our button on the left sidebar.

  • Post your 1st kiss entry on June 14, 2012.
  • Hop around to the other blogs and comment on their wonderful 1st fight and 1st kiss scenes.
Prizes? Absolutely! Jackie and I will each pick our favorite scene from each day. That’s 4 prizes total, folks. What are the fabulous gifts for the winners? $10 email-giftcards to Amazon or Barnes & Noble so you can choose that book you’ve been wanting or download it to your Kindle or Nook.


  1. Too excited for your blogfest :D Trying to decide which book to do them from :)

  2. Congratulations on the awards!

  3. Congrats on the award.

    Wicked excited about the blogfest too. Woot!

  4. "Well, every vaca" <-----LOL.

    And fun for this blogfest! I'm already thinking of which fight scene to choose!

  5. Congrats on the award. You have some awesome taste. I too love True Blood, my phone (how did I survive before I got a smart phone?), dystopias, zombie 5ks (mine is in November and it's called Run for You Life - soooo awesome). And I HATE love triangles. Why why why do people think you need a love triangle to make a good story? So annoying. It's my one real complaint about True Blood (I'm totally Team Eric).

    I'm going to be in Spain during your blogfest :( If it goes well, you should host another one!!


I heart me some good comments... and pumpkin spice latte's too!
