Chastised...and an award!

I have been chastised by my blogger friend Brahm for not posting for a few days. I have been lazy and uninspired... although my husband has been collecting blogging material in the shape of candid camera shots for me this past week and later today I promise to atone for my slackness!

Anyway I'm joining the blogging chain letter so to speak, as Brahm & Alfred nominated me as one of their bloggers to check out... we're supposed to tell you seven things about ourselves that you don't already know, post seven of our favourite blogs that we follow and then comment on those blogs to let them know that we've mentioned them... It's all for the creative Kreativ blogger award, and all you need do to 'qualify' is  (1) have a blog, (2) be creative enough condone the spelling of the word "kreativ", and (3) have someone who really really likes your blog... well as I've been included in a seven (blushes) I guess I qualify!

I searched around the blogging world and found these 'rules' ...so here we go.....

1. Thank the person who nominated you for this award. Thank you Brahm and Alfred ... Gary and I are flattered and blushing
2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog. See above - phew that was easy
3. Link to the person who nominated you for this award.
Please visit Alfred ( a dog nearly as cute as Gary!) and Brahm @ http://alfredliveshere.blogspot.com/
4. Name 7 things about yourself that people might find interesting.
  • When I was about 13 I used to throw the Javelin...and I mean I was really good...then we moved and I decided that I preferred boys rather than training!
  • I'm English, but live in Florida although everyone here thinks I'm Australian..go figure
  • I've known Anne (see blogs of note below) nearly 20 years and I've not hit her yet...it's quite an achievement
  • I met my husband (American) on the internet, our 1st phone conversation was for 16 hours, we got engaged the 1st time we met in person (30 days after 1st speaking), married 16 months later and next week is 6 year anniversary... sometimes you do find your soulmate
  • If I'd not met my husband when I did there is a good chance I'd be living in Australia today...
  • I am super scared of spiders..
  • I'm sorry but my secret love is Reality TV .. may I be struck with the stupid stick just for admitting...

5. Nominate 7 Kreativ Bloggers.
6. Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate.
I'm combining 5&6 ..The hard part here is that there are so many I love, and for many different reasons

1. Of course Alfred Lives Here. It's my 1st stop most days. Alfred (whilst not Gary, is super cute and his Dad is articulate, amusing and approachable... I think you will enjoy reading, I do.
2. Anne, The Day After Tomorrow. Anne is my caustic, sarcastic, witty, deranged, creative, perceptive friend of nearly 20 years... she's pretty amusing even if I do say so myself
3. Kevin & Amanda - really one of the most creative people I've found in the blogging world.. this girl can do it all and their dogs are gorgeous
4. Eat me delicious - I'm not vegetarian, but if I spent too much time on this blog I would be! The orange berry muffins are to die for ;-)
5. Coffee with Marty - I don't consider myself religious at all but this doesn't stop me reading Marty's blog. He is a great writer and his style makes me feel very relaxed when I'm reading...and he loves coffee too (snap!)
6. The Life of a Firefighters Wife - I like how Katie writes, the normal day to day stuff she writes about and her kids are cute too....
7. Crystal goes to Europe - A fellow ex-pat I love reading about Crystal's life in Paris.. she fell in love with a Frenchman and stayed...this is her story

7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know they have been nominated.

I'm off to leave some comments.... enjoy ;-)


Crystal said...

thanks for the nomination and shout out! Im still new at these "blog awards"/nomination things, but once I figure it out (and follow your detailed instructions) I'll be sure to nominate you back!

(P.S. Love your "how you met your hubby" story. That's really sweet and romantic...if not totally rare!)

Crystal said...

me again...great blog links...I'm going to check all of them out because I'm always on the lookout for great new blogs to read :)

Coffee With Marty said...

Thanks so much!!! You are the best! And Gary rocks! I found your 7 points very interesting!

Err... 16 hours on the phone? You guys MUST be soul mates!

And I'm so glad you still read my blog even though you don't consider yourself religious. The truth is, you are a very kind person with a loving nature, and those are universal qualities every religious person should have!


Clare and Gary said...

Marty you make me blush ;-)

Thank you so much Clare! I am honored! :) And I love your blog too! :) I remember the first time I saw your blog with that big picture of Gary at the top and I thought it was the coolest thing I'd ever seen. :)

Clare and Gary said...

Amanda...I'm always pointing people your way.. you are really talented!

Fire Wife Katie said...

Thanks for the mention, Clare! :D That's really cool that you met your husband like that. Not many people get to say they got engaged on their first date!!

Aw wow thank you!! =) Great story about you and your husband. And I must admit there are many trashy reality shows I enjoy too. ;)

This implies that the daughters of the substance and the sand can determine the success and evolve as a better person and team player so I never use this method anymore since then
It's frankly a bit of your generalized concept rather than opening your minds in the endless possibilities that the planet has to offer The main downside to this option is that you might end up getting something that you might not really want and there is the other likelihood of someone else outbidding you
Straight shot on opponent's goal is not possible[url=http://www.jasonpierrepauljerseys.com/]Jason Pierre-Paul Jersey[/url]
so any shot must come from the second foul that touch the ball after the kick For those who wish to have a double benefit can choose memorabilia with multiple signatures
