Sweet Blog Award

I have had my nose to the grindstone this week. I've been very productive and I'm proud of my accomplishments but days spent writing, beading, reading, going to the gym and running errands do not make for interesting blog material.

Sweet Blog Award to the rescue! Both Laila Knight and Ashley Nixon presented me with this award recently - thank you, ladies! The requirements for acceptance are as follows:

1. Link back to the giver.
2. Tell seven things about yourself.
3. Award it to five other bloggers and let them know.

Simple, right? So here are seven things about me.

1. I am addicted to Words With Friends. (Wanna play with me? My username is pianoteacherpam.) I also love Tetris and Bejeweled but I don't play them much these days.
2. When I was in college, I slapped a guy for kissing me without permission. He sent me a dozen red roses and a note of apology the next day.
3. I almost quit piano lessons over The Song of the Volga Boatman and Turkey in the Straw. But eventually I mastered both pieces and can play them to this day.
4. I have never been to Ikea.
5. I don't wear a lot of make-up but I rarely go out of the house without putting on at least tinted moisturizer, blush, eyeliner, mascara and lip gloss.
6. If I could live in sundresses and flip-flops, I would.
7. I love going to Waffle House for breakfast, watching people and chatting with the servers. My favorite meal is cheese and eggs and grits and raisin toast with apple butter. With coffee, of course.

So there you have it. And since I think you're ALL sweet, I can't decide which five of you to pass the award on to. So if you want it, just say the word, and it's yours! Otherwise, feel free to share a random fact or two about yourself in today's comments!

Be sure to come back on Friday to find out about the Freedom Giveaway Blog Hop - an opportunity for you to get to know some other bloggers and win some great prizes! See you then!

I love these kinds of posts that give you a chance to tell a little about yourself. It's great to get to know you better! Maybe you can award one to me, as I'm looking for blog topics these days? After months of not posting anything, I'm trying to get back in the groove. :-)

Pam Asberry said...

The Sweet Blog Award is yours, Leslie! Just grab the image and the icon and post away. I will make a formal announcement and link to your blog one day this week. Can't wait to read your seven facts! :-)

S.M. Carrière said...

I am so envious! I feel like I haven't been all that productive...

Pam Asberry said...

Are you KIDDING me, S.M.? Obviously, you are WAY too hard on yourself. This week has been exceptional for me; generally I don't feel that I accomplish all that much day to day. But when I look at it over a period of weeks and months, it adds up to a lot. Remember that!

leslie tentler said...

Hi Pam, I'll let you know when I post. I just put up a new blog today so I may wait and do it on Friday. Or maybe tomorrow. I'll let you know - thanks!

Laila Knight said...

You're welcome. I love the bit about you slapping a guy for kissing you, and then he gave you roses. That was cute.

Pam Asberry said...

Yes, Laila; he was basically a nice guy, just a little to eager for my taste at the time. If it happened today, we would probably end up married - LOL!

Carol Burnside aka Annie Rayburn said...

Yep, the kissing/slapping one was best. I could see you doing that. Of course, it's best you don't ever go to IKEA, because you'd probably never want to leave. Such cool things in there!

Pam Asberry said...

Thanks, Carol! Unfortunately, one of my friends INSISTS that we plan a field trip to Ikea soon. But I am going to leave my credit card at home! Thanks for stopping by!

Carey said...

I would live in a sundress and flip-flops if I could too! Every spring, I break out my flops way too early and give them up way too late in the fall. And, I certainly wish we had a Waffle House in upstate NY. The IHOP just doesn't compare. :)

Pam Asberry said...

You are right, Carey - the IHOP just doesn't compare! Thank you so much for visiting - all the way from upstate New York. I hope you will come back again soon!
