I now have a Lovely Blog Award

A big “thank you” to Michelle of Unblunder for nominating me for this award (which I would have totally missed had I not happened upon her post! Three cheers for my procrastination!).

There are a few guidelines for accepting this award:

1. Thank the person who nominated you for the award.

2. Display the One Lovely Blog Award on your blog.

3. Share 7 things about yourself.

4. Nominate 15 bloggers you admire and let them know by commenting on their blog.

Seven things about me

  1. I love being by the water. Ocean preferably, but even a small pond will do. It is incredibly relaxing and someday I will have a house on an ocean.
  2. I am capable of g-spot, clitoral, and vaginal orgasms, and never knew until recently that it was unusual.
  3. I take great pride in my ability to can preserves – it’s part of my family heritage and I was determined to learn. My favourite are the organic pitted cherries in amaretto, which are amazing in a glass of sparkling wine.
  4. I really don’t like having my feet dirty when I go to bed. Even if I’m all gross from a day at the beach or gardening or whatever…if I manage to clean my feet, I feel better.
  5. My favourite fancy breakfast is eggs benedict with smoked salmon.
  6. I don’t like “status” purses and avoid buying any that have really obvious labels. The ones with logos all over them? Forget it.
  7. Turns out I really like the colour purple. The first thing I bought for my new place was a purple leather couch. It’s awesome.


The 15 bloggers I nominate

This time, I selected from the people I follow, with no regard for how many times they have already been given the award nor how many followers they have (since there’s no limit with this award).

I also explained why, since it’s something I’m always curious about when I read award blog posts.

  1. The Hook of You’ve Been Hooked (because he’s awesome and probably the most supportive blogger I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting)
  2. Theshitshowthatismylife (because she will call out any bullshit she thinks she sees)
  3. Serins of SerinsSphere (for being wonderfully supportive, and so honest on her blog)
  4. Johnny Id of Id’s Redbook (because I can)
  5. Mark of Yours Poetically (because his writing is hot)
  6. Sam Dolan of Sexploratorium (as the only one who said I shouldn’t write a book, but followed it up with a great rationale…and well, because his blog is seriously NSFW)
  7. Gardener of Gardner’s Blog (because he has helped me when I’ve needed him)
  8. Allie of Hyperbole and a Half (who isn’t blogging that often but her stuff makes me pee my pants I laugh so hard, so I wanted to share. I also have her book)
  9. MeglyMc of Fisticuffsandshenanigans (because she makes me laugh every. single. time.)
  10. August McGregor (because his writing is hot…yes, like #5)
  11. Sharn of Spankilicious (because she is wonderful and supportive and needs some love in her life)
  12. M of The Woman Invisible (because she needs some unconditional bloggy love in her life)
  13. Maurnas of Cursivity (because I really like her and by her own admission, it’s amazing she’s even alive)
  14. Hyacinth of A Dissolute Life Means (because I love her writing, love her tits, and just want to give her a big hug)
  15. Chris of The Muscleheaded Blog (he’s prolific, varied, and his written posts make me laugh)

Please check out the ones you don’t already know…they are awesome!

  1. Congratulations! How you are managing to do all this shit while you’re… um… preoccupied, amazes me. Women really are multi-taskers. If I was doing what you’re doing, I’d be so focussed on the business at hand (and tongue) that the blog would be a steaming heap of porridge on the floor. For a week.

  2. Thank you again! I am so very flattered. And high five on #2! I didn’t realize that was unusual either. Maybe people aren’t trying hard enough?

  3. Thank you so much for the nomination of the Muscleheaded Blog — It was so kind of you- and is much appreciated !!! πŸ™‚

    Congratulations on your award — you deserve it !!!

    Yes, I get that dirty feet thing– absolutely!

  4. Okay, so, to be clear…you wanted the money in small, unmarked bills mailed to your P.O. Box, yes? πŸ™‚

    Thank you, lovely woman… I am sending you ALL the beer and cookies. ALL OF IT.

  5. Congratulations!

    Okay could you please write a post on point 2.
    Mmmm…smoked salmon one of my favorites too.
    I love the color purple.

    O! and thank you for the nomination.

  6. Thank you for the nomination — and for your comment that my writing is hot. Such wonderful feedback makes me glow. I like the list you wrote about yourself, especially the first two items. As for a purple leather couch, I’ve never seen or sat on one. I’ll take your word for that one πŸ™‚ Hopefully, I’ll get around to accepting your nomination and writing a list about myself. As for nomination other blogs, I think you’ve already nominated a lot that I would have!

What do you think?
