My First Blog Award!

Yippee! *jumps in the air like a cheerleader/pump fist in the air like final scene in The Breakfast Club*

Thank you Best O' Books (I would defintely check out her awesome website: http://thebestobooks.blogspot.com/) for nominating me for this award! I feel like I should be tearing right now and trying to make words through my  tears, lol. Anyway, now is the part where I reveal some random seven things about me and nominate fifteen other blogs! This is going to be fun!

1. I'm allergic to the following items: pancake batter (specifically Aunt Jemima), strawberries and possibly pineapple.

2. Even though I am allergic to pineapples, strawberries and pancake batter: I still love them and eat them from time to time.

3. I love to write in Old English for my poems. So maybe you'll see in my poems the words thy, thou, and art.

4. I am addicted to library book sales and my poor chair in my room can attest to the two boxes full of books that are in my tbr pile.

5. I hate the smell of hospitals even though my father works in them and my mother works in a clinic.

6. I am the first teacher in my family which inspired my siblings and cousins to consider teaching too.

7.  I don't read Twilight anymore because of the many twihard fans that became twihard fans because of the movie series. Don't judge me, but I think they are posers until they read the actual series and fall in love with it. I know, I know I'm a bit hard but that's just my feeling. My sister claims to be a Harry Potter fan but refuses to read it because the books look so big and she doesn't like to read. :/ Still awaiting the dna test proclaiming that we are related, lol.

And here are the fifteen blogs that deserve the glorious prize that I've won!

    Becca @ The Bookshelf Muse

  6. holy crap! I got an award? Thank you so much! And congratulations to you too :)

  7. Thanks so much for giving me an award!!! Your blog looks so good!! And I totally agree with your 4 and 7 points about yourself :)

  8. Aren't you sweet for passing this on to me! Thanks so much. This is actually an award I don't have. ;o)

    Ha!--I'm allergic to pineapple (and wheat) and I still occasionally eat it/them too. Gotta have my pizzas, for one thing. I finally did read Twilight (I saw the movies first) and enjoyed it. It was NOT as bad as everyone was saying it was written.

  9. Thanks for visiting and commenting you guys! And congratulations once again to the winners! You guys deserve it. You all are all sugar sweet. And not in the bad way, lol.

    @Angela and Becca at the Bookshelf Muse-It's the very lest I could do as much as you guys help others countless times. I know my books wouldn't be the same without you! I promote your website whenever I could since it's super helpful. :) Wow, Becca, you were a teacher? It shows on your blog, lol. You teach countless others everyday.

    @Caledoia Lass-No problem and congrats!

    @Trish (YA Girl)-Absolutely! You get an award for being awesome, lol. Congrats!

    @ Jessia-Congrats! Lol, I'm glad I'm not the only one who don't like poser twihard fans! :)Or going to the library and picking up a whole series for just 4 bucks! (I picked up the whole Unfornuate Events series just for the low price of four bucks. Best bargain ever!)

    @Carol Riggs-No problem. I double checked to make sure that you didn't have this award already, so there ya go! Congrats!

    God, I love pineapples! It hurts so good to eat them, huh? And who doesn't love pizza? Just be careful!

    Yeah, the movie was bad. The great lines in the book came across SOOOO cheesy on film but not in the book. I don't know what got lost in translation but the book is better. Glad you got to enjoy Twilight series and congrats!

  10. On behalf of us five writers at For the Love of Writing I'd like to say thanks for this award!
    I was LOL at the whole sister/dna thing haha sometimes I feel the same way :D

  11. Thanks for visiting and commenting on my blog!

    @Ree Vera- No problem! Congrats!
    Lol, you have a sister/sibling too who doesn't like reading? :P

    @JLB Creatives-Thanks! :)

  12. Thanks so much for the award! I'm working on writing up my blog on receiving this right now. I agree with your number 7. But it will never stop me from reading it. I love, love, loved the books when there were only 2 of them out. And I tried to get my sister to read them, but she didn't think she wanted to read a teen book. She went to the midnight showing of Twilight with me, and then picked up the book and was hooked! I get so annoyed with people who haven't actually read the books. I love the movies, but in no way are they better than the books.
    Thanks again for the award!

  13. Thanks for visiting and commenting on my blog! Congrats Lisa!
    Well that's one of the reasons why I stopped reading it. And because Breaking Dawn sucked. Sorry, but it did. So I can't really enjoy it when she ends it like that. That sucker needed some editing. Badly.
    You're welcome! Congratulations once again!

  14. Thanks so much!! Congrats to you too!!! :) I totally agree on your #7! I didn't want to read the books at first but after I saw the first movie I had to buy all the books and start reading!!! I've read them over and over and they still don't get old!! The movies will never have anything on the "movie" that plays in my head when I'm reading the books!!! Thanks for the follow and for liking how my blog looks by the way! I followed back! Your's is also fantastic!!

  15. Thanks Jessica for visiting, following, and commenting on my blog! You've been busy, lol!

    No problem! I heart your blog. It was defintely love at first sight, lol. And thanks for the congrats! I feel very honored to have gotten the reward in the first place. I just wanted to share it.

    Lol, I'm starting to see that I'm not the only one with this whole Twilight thing. :P You're right though, those books never get old. Ever. The last book is a little stale, but the other ones are wonderfully written.

    Anyway, thanks again! And congrats! You deserve it!

  16. Hey dearest L,

    Thanks so much for the sweet award. I really appreciate it and I appreciate you, as you already know. Hugs.

  17. Hey G,

    No problem! You are one of the sweetest people I know, so you deserve this reward. And I'm glad you're my friend. How's that book coming along? :) Can't wait to see it!
