Huzzah! Blog Awards!

I want to thank Jaye Robin Brown for the Versatile Blogger award!
I've gotten this one before, so I'm passing on the passing of this one again, but I'm always appreciative when people think of my blog and give it an award. :)

Kelley has also given me a blog award, the Kreativ Blogger award.
For this one, I am sharing 10 things about myself and giving to 6 bloggers.

Ten things about me:

  1. I'm trying to get better at decorating cakes.
  2. Since coming to college, I've been turned on to wearing aprons while washing dishes and cooking. It saves clothes.
  3. Gilmore Girls is my favorite TV show (so far...Once Upon a Time is giving it a run for it's money, but it's too early to tell).
  4. The first musical I saw on stage was Beauty and the Beast, but the first I remember is Wicked.
  5. Most of the youtube videos that I think are hilarious are in some way related to books, cats, or kids.
  6. For 8th grade graduation, I was given the A.R. (Advanced Reader) Award for accumulating over a thousand points and reading Gone With the Wind.
  7. I hate bananas, but love banana cake, banana bread, banana cookies.
  8. I had one year where I was awesome at soccer...then hit a growth spurt and became awkward.
  9. Current favorite song: I Wouldn't Mind by He is We.
  10. I wish I were good at photoshop-y things, but I settle with not-too-embarrassing.
Here's the six Kreativ bloggers I pass the award onto:

  1. Meredith
  2. Laura Josephsen
  3. Brenda Sills
  4. J.A. Bennett
  5. Annie McMahon
Huzzah! You know, that's just a really fun word. And following all of these blogs--also really fun. :)


  1. Thank you so much for the award!! ^_^ I will do a post for it soon.

    1. My sister is a professional cake decorator. I'm nowhere near as good, but I do my kids' birthday cakes every year and have a BLAST. Last year was Appa from Avatar: The Last Airbender and Wall-E. (My kids' birthdays are two and a half weeks apart, so I have just enough time to breathe between cakes. ;))

    2. Aprons DO save clothes! When I remember to put them on while washing dishes, it always helps.

    3. Gilmore Girls was a sweet show. I am loving Once Upon A Time.

    4. The first play I saw was Oliver. I did see Beauty and the Beast, too, and Hubby and I just saw Wicked last year. :D

    7. One of my best friends hates bananas but loves banana bread too.

    9. NEW MUSIC! I think I found a new band to check out. Thank you!

  2. My sister used to decorate cakes professionally. Then she found out she had celiacs now she can't touch cake. I used to love Gilmore girls, somewhere in the series I stopped watching TV (no time) and I never saw the final season. I need to find and watch that. No, I better start at the beginning again. :)

  3. Congratulations on the blog awards. Well deserved.

    Thanks for sharing the interesting things about you. I have a friend who is also into cake decorating. I wish I were that talented.

  4. Oh my gosh! I LOVE the musical Wicked! I've seen it two times and own the soundtrack :)

    I love how both the original leads for Wicked are now on Glee. :)

  5. Thank you so much! I'm personally in love with musicals. I remember going to see 'She Loves Me'(the story line 'You've Got Mail' stole) in junior high and getting hooked! Anyway, thanks again (I've kinda been wanting that one for my collection, hehehe)

  6. Thanks for the award, Jenna! And thanks for visiting my blog! :)

  7. I completely agree with the bananas thing! I'm not wild about the strange texture of bananas, but I love bananas bread and other banana flavored things. Also, I have seen both of those musicals and Wicked is much better!

  8. Aw, thank you so much for the reward! And yay for Gilmore Girls--best show ever! I still watch it when I need a good pick-me-up. :)

  9. It is so nice to know that cake decorating isn't just a natural born skill for everyone. Fun post - new follower :)

  10. What fun to read these ten things about you! And what a super surprise to discover that you'd passed the Kreativ blogger award on to me! I'm still in shock! Thanks! Wow, that was fun!

    Hey, thanks for the link to the song— that's a yummy one! And I love banana stuff. My Mom made THE world's best banana bread growing up—still does. And I have a scrumptious recipe for banana muffins that I have to whip up often!

    Huzzah for Jenna! That IS a fun word to say!!!

  11. Okay I love the idea of you donning an apron for washing dishes. Awesome. Also, I love GG too. My best friend Emily was on a few of the episodes:)

  12. I feel the same way about bananas. :D

    And congrats on the awards!
