Yup, you read that correctly! Elaine from California Living was so thoughtful and gave me a “Stylish Blogger Award” after receiving one herself! Trust me, if you haven’t discovered California Living, head over there now! It’s one blog you’ll definitely want in your Google Reader or RSS Feed. I want to send a huge thanks to Elaine for giving this to me, as it’s my first award ever as a blogger! Who knew that anyone out there in the blogosphere would ever read my posts, much less find me deserving of an award? This definitely made my day!
Because I was given a Stylish Blogger Award, I get to do four fun things. First, thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award. Again, a huge thanks to Elaine at California Living and congratulations on receiving one as well!
Second, share seven (7) things about yourself. Ooh, let’s see.
3. I’m superstitious when it comes to the Duke men’s basketball team. I feel like if I watch the game too long or straight through without taking a break, they’ll lose. True story: the last time I watched a Duke men’s basketball game all the way through was the championship game against Connecticut in 1999. Duke lost.
4. I refuse to create a Facebook page. And, no, I don’t think “The Social Network” should win the Academy Award for Best Picture. Or any Oscar for that matter.
7. I feel the only way to adapt a novel to television is to make it into a miniseries. And, that the only adaptation to do this properly was the BBC’s version of “Pride and Prejudice” with Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle.
Third, award 15 recently discovered great bloggers. This is probably the best part about getting the award; sharing it with others! Also, since I’m still fairly new at blogging, most blogs (to me) are recently discovered! It’s my pleasure to give a “Stylish Blogger Award” to the following amazing blogs (in alphabetical order):
a whisk and a spoon
Bite by Bite
Black Book Kitchen Diaries
Dessert By Candy
Frolicking Night Owl
Joelen’s Culinary Adventures
Jumping off the Cliff
Life is Full
Lilacs In May
Mary Mary Culinary
scrambled hen fruit
That skinny chick can bake!!!
Fourth, contact these bloggers and tell them about the award! I’m so happy about this award and congratulations to the fifteen bloggers who received one from me!
