Super Sweet Blog Award

I was nominated for another blogging award while I was on vacation! I'm extremely flattered and grateful that there are people who like reading my mindless drivel about my experiences with life. Seriously though, I enjoy sharing the good and the crazy that come out of this house. And I'm touched that people like to read about it.

Nichole over at Things My Daughters Told Me nominated me for this award as well! I REALLY like that she has nominated me for both of these awards because she is, hands down, one of my favorite reads. I never read one of her posts without laughing out loud. And I'm not just saying that. She makes me snicker with delight . . . mostly because I can perfectly understand everything that she experiences as a mother. She tells the truth and she makes it laughable instead of depressing. And I like that. Negativity never helped anyone. So go give her some blog love. You will not be sorry.

The rules for this award are as follows:

1. Thank the super sweet blogger who nominated you for the award.
2. Nominate a baker’s dozen of the bloggers who you think deserve the award.
3. Send them a comment to let them know they’ve been nominated.
4. Answer five super sweet questions.
5. Now, SMILE!

Is it weird that I feel like I'm judged more by my answers to these award questions than my blog content? I think I'm starting to sweat . . .

1. Cookies or cake?

Cookies. Without question. Dangle a cookie in front of my face and I'll eat 63. Unless you put something like raisins or craisins in them, in which case I'll pretend to eat them and then spit them out in a napkin that I'll dispose of when you're not looking.

2. Chocolate or Vanilla?

I laughed that Nichole said vanilla and then felt the need to defend herself. Let's face it, people act like vanilla is boring. But I love vanilla. And I hate chocolate. My mom couldn't even eat chocolate when she was pregnant with me because it would make her sick. That's how much I hate it. I hate it with some sort of inherent loathing. I will not eat chocolate cake or ice cream or milkshakes or hot chocolate . . . none of it. I can tolerate chocolate if it's drowning in pretzels and nuts and caramel and other goodness, but it's still not what I'd choose. And in vanilla's defense, I'm one of the coolest chicks you'll ever meet, so it obviously can't be that bad.

3. What is your favorite sweet treat?

Honestly, I think forcing me to confess my maple bar addiction is a bit mean-spirited for a super sweet award, but I'm not much good at lying, so there it is. I love donuts. Especially maple bars. I wouldn't care if they made me gain five pounds per bite. I'd still eat them. Often.

4. When do you crave sweet things the most?

Only when there's none to be found. I could generally care less about sweets if my cupboards are full of them, but the second there is nothing there I have this supernatural urge to go on a sugar binge. I have no explanation for it. I imagine it's how a prisoner feels as she awaits her freedom.

5. If you had a sweet nickname, what would it be?

Haha, I have no idea. Come to think of it, most of my nicknames are obnoxious as opposed to sweet. Maybe I was given this award by mistake...

A baker's dozen of super sweet bloggers. Oh my. I had a hard time with this last time. Here goes. And someone please be impressed that I knew a baker's dozen was thirteen and not twelve.

  1. The Adventures of Supermom
  2. Love Life With Kids
  3. Biscuits 'n Crazy
  4. Becoming Cliche
  5. Memories by Me Photography
  6. Inspiring Kids
  7. Living, Loving, and Learning Together
  8. Sue Likkel

Okay, I hope no one gets irate with me or anything, but a bunch of the blogs I would choose have already been nominated for the award and searching for ones that haven't is proving exhausting. I hope this means that I only read really good blogs. Anyway, I'll try to add some more when I run across them, but for now you get eight. I hope I don't get banned from the blogging universe because I like it here. Now I just have to remember to go tell all of my favorite bloggers that I nominated them. No promises.:)

Seriously, tell me what you think.
