Road Trip A-Z Challenge Day 11


Post A-to-Z Road Trip [2013]

http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/2013/05/want-to-join-us-for-ultimate-road-trip.html

Today is Day 11 and is so full of awards that just came rolling in during the day as I was about to do the road trip that I decided to postpone the trip to include them with the people who had nominated.

The first stop on our trip I may have mentioned prior, however she is such a must read daily that I feel safe in mentioning her again.

http://theseeker57.wordpress.com/2013/05/10/an-award-with-no-rules-thank-you-utes-happy-world/

http://theseeker57.wordpress.com/about/ (she has such an interesting site I am sending you there and will wait till you come back to continue)

Now that you are back… The award is 2013-apr-24-most-infl-blogger-award-utesmile

The way this one goes is…if you have left a comment on any of my blog sites…you qualify for this award.

Next Stop would be to another favorite of mine that is always a fun read:  http://revisedgewater.wordpress.com/2013/02/19/captain-procrastination-accepts-an-award/

To read about Revisedgewater just go to http://revisedgewater.wordpress.com/ I actually think there might be a little more than 33 grams of blog there.

That award was nordic-bliss-liebster-award

Now I am in trouble as this one comes with rules…

1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves.

2. Answer the questions that the tagger set for you plus create 11 questions for the people you’ve tagged to answer.

3. Choose 11 people and link them in your post.

4. Go to their page and tell them.

5. No tag backs!

Hmm this is supposed to be a road trip about other sites, not me lol… I am going to answer his eleven questions and that should tell you eleven things about me.

1. Which superpower would you want? Not sure what is available out there in this modern age.  Does this question come with a list?

2. If you had that superpower, would you be my sidekick? Oh You had better ask your wife first.  Maybe a cyber sidekick will have to ask hubby if I can take time to fight bad guys  in my spare time.

3. If you could make sure a certain actor/actress would never be allowed to make another movie ever again, who would it be? I do not really keep track of actors and actresses so I guess they get a reprieve here.

4. Why? Too busy with my own life to live in that fantasy world.

5. What are you 33 grams of? Love, compassion, understanding and patience.

6. Are you as tired of this post as I, Captain Procrastination, am? LOL

7. You’re blocking the TV. Can you move a little to the left? I just turned sideways. Now you can see.

8. I guess I should’ve asked this as number 3, but I don’t care enough to put them in order. What would your superhero name be if you were my sidekick? Love overwhelmer

9. Do you have any money I can borrow? I might eventually pay you back one day. Sorry just gave hubby last twenty.

10. Which movie character (it can be from any movie) would you most want with you during a zombie apocalypse? not familiar with Zombie Apocalypse.

11. . Which movie character (it can be from any movie) would you least want with you during a zombie apocalypse? Ditto That looks like a game…

Eleven nominees will be included with the next award which also needs nominees:

So there is Day 11 Road Trip of Awards…thank you for all of them.  This has been an inspiration to really carry on and I now know that perhaps I just encountered a bad apple. Then blessings were bestowed with the awards and I now feel like a new woman that can conquer the world of writing one road trip at a time.

Thank you to all my readers for the support.

      Nomination for Liebster Blog Award


      I was surprised when I got up this morning and found that I had been nominated for an award.  It was a really nice honor.

      I no longer qualify however since I am now at 205 followers.  Unless I just count http://tammyehoney.wordpress.com/ With that blog I would qualify.

      http://likeitiz.wordpress.com/2013/04/18/liebster-blog-from-shammee/ is the kind person who nominated me for

      liebster-award

      Here are the rules:
      1. Anyone with less than 200 followers can be nominated for The Liebster.
      2. Each nominee should post facts about herself or himself.
      3. Each nominee should answer the questions that are asked by the person doing the nominating.
      4. Choose new bloggers to nominate for the Award and link them in the post.
      5. Create new questions for your nominees.
      6. Go back to their pages and tell them they’ve been nominated.
      7. No tag backs.

      I will be kind enough to answer her questions or at least try to:

      What is the one thing that would irritate the hell out of you?

      I would have to say I can not tolerate a person lying to me.

      What would you say to someone who asks you when you’re due but you’re not pregnant?

      This used to happen when I was heavier.  I used to laugh it off and say “Oh, I have delivered,  just have not deposited the balance in the weight loss bank yet.”

      Why is Jimmy Fallon so great?   I did not know that he was.  I will have to do research on this one.

      Describe your favorite space. 

      That would have to be my bed.  Curled up with my animals and crocheting.

      Favorite quote you live by.

      It has seemed to be more necessary to have regard to the weight of words rather than to their number.
      – Cicero
      What would you do if your significant other forgot your anniversary?
      Be nice about it…it is a little hard to forget our anniversary though.  I think it is funny that we got married Sept. 9, 2009.
      What would you say if your best bud’s older brother suddenly grabbed your butt at a party?
      Excuse me, I think you have me confused with your wife…you might want to stop drinking now before my hubby notices.
      What was the worst intro (making a pass) remark someone ever made to you?
      Having been a bartender in my life, I would say that I could do an entire blog page on this one in my funny blog page.  Might just do that later.
      What’s your best childhood memory about?
      Being with my grandmother.
      What are you most proud of about yourself?
      So this is where I am supposed to Toot my own Horn?
      smiley face
      What is the number one reason why Sarah Silverman left Jimmy Kimmel?
      She did?  News to me.  I did not even know that they were together.  Guess that I do not know much about Jimmy Kimmel.  Sorry.
      Since I do not qualify for this award I am not sure if I actually qualify to pass it on or not.  Therefore…if I have hit like on a post it shows on my side bar so feel free to feel that you have been nominated for this award.

      Special Thank You to ????


      I owe a special thank you to two different people for two different awards.  I was busy helping a friend get ready for her baby with sewing lessons then actually ended up in the delivery room with her as one of her coaches.  I have no idea who gave me these awards or what the rules are now…if you could refresh my poor exhausted memory on both counts, it would be fantastic.

      At least I have a beautiful mom and baby to show for my efforts of not answering them…

      Miss Shelby was well worth the effort to get her here… It was an honor to be a part of the process.

      The Liebster Award


      nordic-bliss-liebster-award

       

      https://revisedgewater.wordpress.com/2013/02/19/captain-procrastination-accepts-an-award/

      This is the first award that I received of the two.  Thank You for the honor and here are the rules.

      Here are the rules.

      1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves.

      2. Answer the questions that the tagger set for you plus create 11 questions for the people you’ve tagged to answer.

      3. Choose 11 people and link them in your post.

      4. Go to their page and tell them.

      5. No tag backs!

      Here are 11 things about myself that I am to tell the world.

      1. I am remarried for the first time and am glad that I took the chance.
      2. My hubby and I have two dogs and two cats.
      3. I teach sewing, crocheting and knitting to area people.
      4. We have numerous grand children plus adopted grand children.
      5. We live in the country just outside of Clarksville, TN and Ft. Campbell, KY
      6. My favorite color is blue, although I love bright colors.
      7. I love to decorate
      8. My new hubby and I run many businesses that are all home based.
      9. I love to cook
      10. My friends and my hubby feel that I am very friendly, kind, sharing, amusing and intelligent.
      11. My hubby looks to me to spell constantly.  My friends feel that I am very positive.

      Here are the Questions that I need to answer:

      1. Which superpower would you want?

      Since I can already fairly accurately read my new hubby’s mind  I am not sure what super powers there are … Perhaps some great strength could come in handy.

      2. If you had that superpower, would you be my sidekick?

      Since I am married, not sure if I fit the bill on this one.  In a cartoon I could be Wonder Woman.

      3. If you could make sure a certain actor/actress would never be allowed to make another movie ever again, who would it be?

      Since I can’t go to the movie theater due to their serving popcorn I do not have an answer for this,.

      4. Why?

      My allergy to Corn and Corn Products.

      5. What are you 33 grams of?

      Hopefully not excessive fluids or fats.  Since I have lost so much weight both are quite reduced.

      6. Are you as tired of this post as I, Captain Procrastination, am?

      It has become long and tedious.

      7. You’re blocking the TV. Can you move a little to the left?

      This one I did immediately.  I just turned sideways and you had the full view of the TV.

      8. I guess I should’ve asked this as number 3, but I don’t care enough to put them in order. What would your superhero name be if you were my sidekick?

      Since Wonder Woman is taken how about Blog Woman?

      9. Do you have any money I can borrow? I might eventually pay you back one day.

      We are tapped out from used to be friends that once they borrowed the money stopped communicating with us.

      10. Which movie character (it can be from any movie) would you most want with you during a zombie apocalypse?

      Since I have never viewed a Zombie Apocalypse I went to YouTube to be educated.

      To my amazement there was a lot of material on the subject.  I chose the survival method.  I would just request The Men In Black

      11. . Which movie character (it can be from any movie) would you least want with you during a zombie apocalypse?

      Woody Allen

      Now for My 11 Questions:

      1. Why do you have a blog on Word Press.com?
      2. What is unique about your writings?
      3. In what direction do you want your writings to flow in the coming year?
      4. Do you find receiving awards annoying or delightful?
      5. Do you use your Blog for inspiration to others or for a place to vent?
      6. Do you own more than one blog site?
      7. Is your site a teaching tool or a learning tool?
      8. What type of reader do you want to attract to your site?
      9. Have your accomplished this task?
      10. Do you feel that your site is running great, needs improvement or is in the beginning stages?
      11. Do you know what “Tagging” is?  (I do not) lol

      Choose 11 people and link them in your post.

      Here comes the hard part…just picking 11 great blog sites on Word Press.com

      I have slowly started to choose my recipients and will explain why I read their blogs.

      1. http://whatidesiredtosay.wordpress.com (A quick read for a really great laugh)
      2. http://rumpydog.com (For their dedication to the prevention of cruelty to animals)
      3. http://hopethehappyhugger.wordpress.com (For her honest blog on parenting and life in general)
      4. http://rantingchef.com (For great recipe ideas almost daily)
      5. http://clevermuffin.com (Although she is not Word Press she always has great recipes)
      6. http://diaryofamadcrafter.wordpress.com (For giving me inspiring ideas for my students to try)
      7. http://desperatelyseekingsparkle.com (For her new product reviews and New Looks on the Runways)
      8. http://simplystephanieblog.com (Another great recipe site)
      9. http://mommahasapottymouth.wordpress.com (For a different prospective on life)
      10. http://freepennypress.wordpress.com (For a different approach to life topics)
      11. http://thelondonflowerlover.wordpress.com (For when I feel like receiving a dozen roses)

      Don’t panic if your blog was not mentioned, it might be in the next award… Could have kept going but if I did I would not get to the other award.

       Go to their page and tell them. (I was hoping the trackbacks would do this for me)

      No tag backs! Can someone tell me what this is please?  Am I guilty of this?  I hope not.  

      I am thinking that it means giving the award back to the person who just gave it to you…. I have acknowledged that great blog site…but did not include in my list.  Hope that I did it correctly.  Would not want to be reported to the Word Press.com Police and get a ticket or fine.

      This became long due to subject material…hope you stayed with me through it.
