Beautiful Blogger Award

So, I am incredible humbled and honored to have been awarded the Beautiful Blogger Award by Cheri of CheGo2 the Kitchen! This is a total shock, as Cheri hasn't been reading the old blog for very long (that I know of) and yet she considered me worthy. So I'm a little Gobstopped.

But excited, too! I've always wanted to win this one! Thanks!!!!


So, as many of you know, I'm supposed to tell you ten things about me that you may not know. Hmmmm . . .

1. When I come across the movie "Urban Cowboy" on the T.V. I become paralyzed, unable to take my eyes off of the screen. I just love John Travolta's angsty cowboy rage (and that soundtrack) (oh, and Debra Winger!).

2. I came to Christ when I was 12 walking home from school. I just stopped walking, told Him I wanted to let Him in, and there he was. That easy. And He's been with me ever since.

3. I used to collect tinted lithographs of nature and garden scenes. I have a lot.


4. I like my tea unsweetened with no flavor. The only herbal tea I like is Mint Medley. I think tea should taste like tea.

5. I had my gall bladder out when I was 28. Just quit working, just like that. When they looked at it, it looked perfectly healthy, but it was like that battery on it died and it had to be removed.

6. I like ridiculous comedies. Like Zoolander and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. My favorite is Anchorman ("I love scotch. Scotchy scotch scotch. There it goes. Down into my belly").

7. My worst childhood act was stealing my Grandma's Captain and Tenille album - the one with "Muskrat Love." She knew immediately who had done it and come storming into my house to get it back and give me a stare of death. She scared me straight!


8. I love office supplies. When I was a doctor I'll bet I had 300 pens. I would have 20 or so blank journals if I had the money for it. Paper clips and hole punches make me happy.

9. I know how to rewire a lamp. Try it sometime. It's easy.

10. When I was a resident I used to order tomato and onion pizzas. They smell like old gym socks but they sure taste good!

So now I have to find 10 recipients to pass the award along to. Which is difficult because I read SO MANY great blogs and quite a few of them have already received The Beautiful Blogger Award. And who can I say doesn't have a beautiful spirit? All of my bloggy sisters do. So, after much deliberation, the award goes to:

Heather of Implausible Yarn
Roxanne of The 60/40
Relyn of Come Sit By My Fire
Stephanie of Handmade by God
Maegan of Madeline Bea: Life Set to Words
Anna of lilla lotta
Kate of Lazy Kate Creates
Manda of There is a Time...
Mary of In a Soft Light
Beth of be yourself...everyone else is taken
And finally, a very special shout out to Ashley of Little Miss Momma, which I've only just started reading, but who I know is a Beautiful Blogger simply from her post I Have a Secret. Any of my long time readers know that I know all about this. I admire your courage, Ashley.

Stopping by from SITS!

Oh, I love unsweetened tea, too! When I was 11 I decided not to put sugar in it one day to really TASTE the tea and I've enjoyed it that way ever since!

I also love office supplies. I have many tiny notebooks filled with essays, short stories, and blog posts just waiting for me to finish them!

I love office supplies, I can not have enough pens and journals.

Kitty said...

Thanks so much for the award! I've always loved paper products- but I have a hard time using a notebook- I like them all fresh and clean!

Teresa @ ♥ Too Many Heartbeats ♥ said...

Congratulations on your award. I just started reading today but I can already tell it is much deserved!

I'm stopping by from Friendly Friday, albeit a tad bit late. :0) I wanted to say hello and share some comment lo♥e.

I really like your blog and just became your newest 'Follower'. I love that you used to be a Pediatrician. I am a retired Medic who worked for Children's Healthcare of Atlanta for several years and later as an assistant to a Pediatrician for over 6 years. I only quit when I became seriously ill myself. I really miss it as I have a huge heart for hurting children.

I would love for you to take a minute to check out my blog and follow me, too, if you like what you see. I will definitely be back soon to read more of yours.

I hope the rest of your weekend is amazing!

Teresa <><

Oh thank you so much! I am so honored and wish I could give you the award right back! I read your blog and sometimes I swear its like you can read my mind.

Carey said...

Just found your blog from SITS!

A few things I agree with 100% in this post -- 'Urban Cowboy' LOVE it, I also love ridiculous comedies (I chuckled when I read the scotch quote LOL) and I also have a severe addiction to office supplies.

Have a good Sunday! :)

Stephanie said...

Erin! Congratulations on your first Blog Award!! You certainly deserve it! I don't get over here nearly as often as I'd like but when I do it is truly a beautiful place !
And.....Thank you so much! I certainly don't feel worth at all~ but I do appreciate it very much!
