Life Is Good Award

Life Is Good Award (x2)
Graciously given by Anna @ Books to Brighten Your Mood
 Tina @ Book Couture
Thank you both for the honor!
Please stop by both of these wonderful blogs!  I do!!


  • Thank and link back to the person that gave this award.
  • Answer the 10 survey questions.
  • Pass the award along to 15 bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic.
  • Contact the bloggers you’ve picked to let them know about the award.

1. If you blog anonymously are you happy doing it that way; if you are not anonymous do you wish you had started out anonymously so you could be anonymous now?
I don't follow any anonymously.  Personally I LOVE my followers!  I would enjoy getting to know each one of them better.  I guess because I love knowing who follows me, I like to let others know who I am when I follow them.  I really don't have a desire to be anonymous.  I don't feel that my non-anonymous nature is for any specific reason or to gain any extra exposure.  I follow because I enjoy or like the blog.

2. Describe one incident that shows your inner stubborn side:
Learning to blog!  I didn't give up and started with no knowledge of how anything worked!  HTML was incredibly new and foreign.  I have come a long way quickly.  I strive to achieve and I love that people enjoy my blog.  It's my oasis and it is flattering that people enjoy my thoughts and opinions.

3. What do you see when you really look at yourself in the mirror?
I see a mom.  I see a wife.  I see a friend.  I see a daughter.  I see someone who may be tired, might not feel well, may be having a good or bad beauty day, but overall is happy and blessed.  I see love.  I see God's handiwork.  Beauty is on the inside and I strive to be truly beautiful in those terms.

4. What is your favourite summer cold drink?
Root Bear Float!!!  I love them!  Chocolate ice cream only!!

5. When you take time for yourself, what do you do?
I read! I go to the spa!  I shop for me!   My 3 favorite things to do for just me!

6. Is there something you still want to accomplish in your life? What is it?
Wow, Yes, I am a mom... I have a lot more to accomplish in my two beautiful children.  They are artwork in the making.  I love watching their personalities blossom and their individual talents grow.  I want to help them grow into the person they will become.    I would love to design my own house some day too!  I would love to have a job as a publicist or as an event coordinator.  I love to plan large scale events down to the very nitty gritty details! 

7. When you attended school, were you the class clown, the class overachiever , the shy person, or always ditching?
I was quiet but not shy.  I enjoyed my friends and goofing off with them.  I achieved to my abilities, striving to give everything my best but I also had fun.  I am a rule follower and didn't ditch often.  For me to do my best I felt I should be in class.  When it came to college classes, I was paying for them so I might as well be there!

8. If you close your eyes and want to visualize a very poignant moment of your life what would you see?
Mine is not one that I would want to visualize.  Instead it is one that I can still to this day visualize regardless of if my eyes are opened or closed.  It was my grandfathers funeral.  I was very young and it really made a huge impact on me in a negative manner.

My sweet poignant memories were my wedding and the birth of my two children.

9. Is it easy for you to share your true self in your blog or are you more comfortable writing posts about other people or events?
Regardless of my post it is the true me.  I seldom share really personal things in my blog because it is set that anyone and everyone can read it, but I am not uncomfortable with revealing who I am through my writings.  Slowly but surely a little more of me comes out because I pour myself into my blog.  It is not something that anyone else contributes too.  It is purely my thoughts, my opinions and my emotions.  I have a mommy blog that I started that shares a little more of me because this blog is about my reviews.

10. If you had the choice to sit down and read or talk on the phone, which would you do and why?
READ-READ-READ!  I have always been a reader!  I do not like to talk on the phone.  I would rather write a letter or read a letter, READ!!

Here are the lovely people with wonderful blogs I am passing on this award to:

Note: I did not check every blog to see if you have already been awarded this award.  If you do not want to accept it that is quite alright!  I would love it if you accepted the award I passed to you, but you are absolutely under no obligation to pass it on. It would also make my day, and quite a few other people's days if you did, though. *winks*
