Happy Friday! I think I need to reacquaint myself with you all! Between moving my parents to Nebraska and attending the Eric Jensen conference "Teaching with Poverty in Mind," I totally got all blogging/writing discombobulated. I missed Friday Photos last week because I was marooned in Dallas, Texas, after my flight on Thursday was cancelled. My bags made it to Denver on Thursday, but I didn't! That put me behind on everything, including picking my children up from my parents in Nebraska, and so I missed the first installment of "Something Bizarre Happened." I even had a great story from being marooned in Dallas.
All water under the bridge now, right? While I was taking my forced break, my wonderful writing friend, Melanie Marttila, bestowed a new blog award upon Motivation for Creation! Here it is!
|The Super Sweet Blogging Award!|
There are some rules, which include answering some sweet questions, but I promise I'll be brief, so we can get to the photos. Or, if you want, skip this part and head right to the photos below!
- Thank the person who nominated me.
- Answer five Super Sweet questions.
- Include the award in my post. (check!)
- Nominate a baker's dozen of deserving bloggers. (gulp.)
- Notify my nominees on their blogs.
Thank you, Melanie, for the fabulous new award! I love blog awards!
Cookies or cake?
Both. I eat cookies more because they're easier to make, and don't spoil as fast, but I love both.
Chocolate or vanilla?
Um, vanilla, I think. I choose plain vanilla ice cream and vanilla cake over chocolate ice cream or cake. However, I love chocolate candy bars, pudding, pie, etc... So, I guess maybe both, again?
Favourite sweet treat?
Chocolate chip cookies - from dough to cookie. And I usually eat more dough than cookies.
When do you crave sweet things the most?
All the time. I have a bad habit.
Super sweet nickname?
My husband and I call each other sweetie. :)
Nominations: I don't have thirteen bloggers to nominate, so I'll just come up with as many as I can think of:
Cindy Keen Reynders, David Walker, Denise Wilson Falvo, Lexa Cain, Kelley Lynn, Suzi Weiland Retzlaff, Nicole Bates, Stacy Stenberg Jensen, Mike Schulenberg, Joe H. (Cranky), Fel Wetzig. (I got eleven! If I'm forgetting someone, I'm so sorry.)
You are all so sweet and dear to me. You have stuck around and/or been helpful and supportive. Thank you and enjoy the award, if you want to accept it.
And now to Friday Photos!
This is the pun of the day, but I really think it gets the best costume for a horse award.
My favorite this week is the Eleplant. I just relate to the poor little thing. I'm always doing things like that. But Catnip totally cracks me up, too.
What is your favorite?
