Awards - SQUEEEEEE!!! :D (and giveaway info)

I picked the worst day imaginable to be far away from my computer. *sigh* I have learned my lesson. (No, I probably haven't. I just can't stay glued here all day...The Boyfriend needs tending to occasionally.) Anywho... Something AMAZING happened. We got our very first, AND our very second award!! Yay! *throws confetti!* (note to self - find someone to pick up confetti.) The adorable Renae and the charming Suzie over at The Siren's Song and ~Writer Junkie~ (respectively) have both gifted us the Versatile Blogger Award. Yay! *another handful of confetti* Thank you ladies!!

Now, here are the rules:
1. Thank and link back to the person who gave you this award.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Pass the award along to 15 bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic for whatever reason! (In no particular order...)
4. Contact the bloggers you've picked and let them know about the award.

See, those aren't so bad, huh? Actually, I think it'll be tons of fun :) Here we go! (P.S. I'm adding my 7 things at the moment, with the assumption that Kristen will update this post at a later time with hers. So keep checking in!)

Kelsey Leigh's 7 things:
1. I wish life were a musical.
2. I hate feet. Even my own. bleh.
3. I cannot be parted from my cell phone. NOoOoOo!
4. I talk to inanimate objects. And sometimes expect them to respond. (shhh.)
5. Sometimes I get so caught up in writing/reading that I forget to do basic things. Like eat, or sleep.
6. My nose wrinkles up involuntarily when I am displeased.
7. I like to find the humor in everything. 

Kristen's 7 things:
1. Most people think I'm shy and quiet they get to know me and find out the opposite.
2. My southern accent comes and goes in spurts.
3. I'm the worst storyteller known to man, but my friends find it amusing.
4. Reading generally consumes my existence.
5. I'm short and so clumsy that I tend to trip on flat surfaces...a lot.
6. I absolutely hate spiders.
7. I love sticking out my tongue in pictures...its kinda my trademark. :)

And now, our award goes to:
1. Jinxie at Jinxie' World 
2. NL Gervasio at 
3. Amalia at 
4. Dave Bartlett at 
5. W. J. Howard at

Now we have also had a surge of followers lately, so I wanted to say hi to everyone, and thank you! Kris and I are getting together this weekend to talk about hosting our own blogfest, and also a giveaway! Yes, a giveaway!!! Woo! So remember, keep checking in either here or in the twitterverse. Thanks all!

  1. You do realize Jinxie and NL Gervasio are one and the same, right? LOL Crap, I got triple hit then.

  2. Aww, thanks so much!! It's a great way to start the morning, I'll be smiling all day now! :D And congrats on the award. :)

  3. Congrats on the award! And Thank you for passing it on to me.:) So fun to get awards.

  4. Congratulations! And wow! Thanks so much :)

    you are definitely not alone in forgetting to eat when writing :)

  5. ZOMG

    THANK YOU my dear :)



    I don't particularly like feet either


    *dances off*

  6. I am all over 3, 5 and 7. I don't know what I'd do without my cell and I forget to eat all the time. And if I don't look for the humor in everything, I'll probably be overwhelmed by the sad, so... humor it is! Thank you so much for the award, I'm honored!

  7. Congratulations to the awardees! Great job.

  8. I'm with you all over 1,4,5,7. Congratulations on your first award - I got my first award yesterday too! (as well as my second and third but I haven't blogged about those ones yet either).

    I didn't tell you this on my last comment but I absolutely adore your blog layout. I like staring at it. Hmmm, a blogfest...never joined one but it might be fun.

  9. WHOO HOO!! Congrats to you and thanks from us over at Bloodleggers!

  10. Congrats on your award! How fun! And congrats for those who've earned the award, too! Thank you for the award, you are so sweet!! ;) ((hugs))

  11. Thank you ladies. I'm currently working on my post to pass the award on. The seven things about me are the most difficult, and thanks to you, everyone will now know exactly how weird I really am! Ah well. I suppose the truth had to come out sooner or later!
