Fabulous Blog Award

It's been a bit of a crazy week but I promise to make the rounds this weekend and catch up on peoples' blog posts!  In the meantime: 

Tara at More Than Fiction has graciously bestowed the Fabulous Blog Award upon me!  This one goes by 5s.  I'm supposed to name 5 of my most fabulous moments, 5 things I love and 5 things I hate and then pass this along to 5 fabulous bloggers.  So here goes:


Five Most Fabulous Moments

1.  The day my daughter was born.  To this day, if I'm having a bad day or I'm particularly stressed, I close my eyes and relive parts of that day and then I get all happy and relaxed.

2.  The day my now-husband and I finally sealed the deal.  We got married this past Valentine's Day in a private, super-stealth ceremony.  Incredible day.

3.  The day I signed my contracts for Finding Claire Fletcher and Aberration.  It was a long time coming.  A lifelong dream realized.  Didn't sink in for a few weeks.  I'm really still all "WOO HOO!!!!!" about it.

4.  The day I received my black belt.  Only giving birth was more demanding than my 30 day black belt test. Old school stuff.  The things I learned during that test changed me as a person.

5.  The day I received my Master's degree.  It was quite anticlimactic but a graduate degree is a graduate degree.  I felt like, "Holy crap, I really did this!  How very odd but also so cool."  


Five Things I Love

1.  My family and friends.
2.  Writing.
3.  Reading.
4.  Fleetwood Mac
5.  The little miracles that happen in my life every day.

Five Things I Hate

1.  People who hurt children.
2.  Sociopaths.
3.  Dishonesty.
4.  Laziness.
5.  Moody people.

Five Fabulous Bloggers

I'm going to change this up a bit because I see a lot of people I follow have already received this.  So if you follow my blog, you're totally fabulous and I invite all of my followers to accept this award and post about it on your own blog!

  3. Some really great moments there. I sometimes say that the day my son was born was the best and worst day of my life. I did not have an easy birth or very good care afterward, but, wow, what a miracle, huh?

    And I don't think I knew you were a black belt with a masters. Very impressed!
