Kreativ Blogger Award

It's party time, friends, cause I got tagged
not once, not twice, not three times (a lady)
but you guessed it four times!
My cup runneth over!
What did I get tagged in?

And who be these amazing tagging fools?

A very berry heartfelt thank you to all!

Dear Reader, 
Please make sure to check out 
these awesome bloggers/writers/supporters/friends.
You will not regret it!
I do so swear.

Now onto the shenanigans!

The Rules:
1. Thank & link back to the person who nominated you.
2. Answer the ten questions.
3. Share ten random facts/thoughts about yourself.
4. Nominate seven worthy blogs for the Kreative Blogger Award.

The Questions:

1. What's your favorite song?
Okay, blah blah blah, there is no WAY I could pick a favorite song. But what I can do is give y'all a list of the Top Five Songs I Listen To On Repeat Of Late.
1. Cameras -- Matt & Kim
2. Of Minor Prophets -- David Bazan
3. Keep it Together -- Guster
4. We Are Young -- fun.
5. Magic -- B.O.B. ft. Rivers Cuomo *
*theme song aka the get pumped song

2. What's your favorite dessert?
My favorite dessert tends to change on a whim, yet chocolate is almost always involved.
This month's dessert of choice:

3. What ticks you off?
The word swag. It's just not a good word. sssssW-aaag. *shudders* I've got beef with the creator of this horrid word.

4. What do you do when you're upset?
Become a blotchy mess of rashness and feel all tongue tied. The mister always knows when I'm upset because I get freakishly quiet. A poker player, I am not.

5. Which is your favorite pet?
A hedgehog. His name was Herbie. He shall always be miss.
*raises a bottle of Jack* 
*pours out a fifth*
*bows head*

6. Which do you prefer: black or white?
I like black sharpies and white chalk.

7. What is your biggest fear?
Losing one of my not so lil cuties. We've had some touch and go moments with a few of them, and let me just say, Not.A.Fan.

8. What is your attitude mostly?
I tend to be overly positive toward others. The kind of positive that is so disgusting it makes a person want to vomit. Now, as far as my attitude toward myself, in general, I'm self deprecating emo in the corner.

What can I say? When you've got two brains (a medically proven fact) things get complicated.

9. What is perfection?
I'm not one for perfection. Give me messy, loud, and out of control any day of the week. Perfection makes me nervous and leery.

10. What is your guilty pleasure?
The Vampire Diaries. There. It's out. Phew.

The Random Facts:

1. I am obsessed with socks, long socks, short socks, slipper socks, striped socks, socks, socks, socks. I want them ALL!

2. I despise ketchup. Just the scent of it makes me physically ill. It's something I've learned to deal with in a world covered in condiments.

3. In general, I am not an animal lover, but I am a vegetarian (who eats fish sparingly) so I feel it evens out.

4. My dad's nickname for me was Pinhead. He used my head as a target when golfing in the winter time. It explains a lot about me as an individual.

5. When I was in junior high I came up with the pen name--
                                                                                 wait for it--
                                                                                         Ivory Nights.

6. I have one tattoo and it took me a decade to commit to it. It runs along the inside arc of my right foot and is a quote from one of me and the mister's songs.

7. I enjoy being bundled up and wear long sleeves pretty much everyday, even when it's 118 degrees outside.

8. I've always wished I was Canadian, and I have Anne of Green Gables to thank for that.

9. If I could eat guacamole everyday, all day long, I would. *heaven*

10. The whole time I've been answering these questions my youngest has been hanging on my back whispering random questions into my ear. It's awesome.

  1. You're welcome! I LOVE numbers 8 & 9 on the random fact list. #fact

    1. Guacamole & Anne Shirley truly do make the world go 'round. =)

  2. bestie this is pure wonderment! and thank you for tagging me! maybe I'll post it sometime in the next -i dunno- month. i fail at blogging.

    ps...TVD FOR THE WIN!!

    1. I'd be disappointed if you posted it any time in the next year. It would ruin our track record of ALWAYS being behind. It's our special brand of magic, my dear best. And the world is out of wack now that we've hug, we should probably tread lightly.


      Oh and p.s. the season ender is just now hitting me! WTF??!

  3. I love the way you put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard!). You could copy out the phone directory and it'd make me smile!
    Anyway, love your answers...I loved Anne of Green Gables, and I'm wondering what sort of books did Ivory Nights plan to write? That's a name-and-a-half!

    1. You have officially just inspired my next novel-- Tales of the Phone Directory.

      Seriously, you are too awesome.

      As far as Ms. Nights, she wrote historical fiction of the romantic persuasion, but of course. Pirates, anyone?

  4. Brilliant! Your answers made me laugh out loud. I want Ms Nights to have a renaissance! A name as good as that needs air!


Hey, you. Yeah, you. You know you've got something to say. I'd love to know what it is. So just type in the little white box and let's talk. Don't be shy. I swear I don't bite.
