Bloggy Love for me!

I received a double award the other day from Traci over at 38 and Growing. The Heartfelt Blogger Award and the Kreativ Blogger Award. I'm truly honored to be honored this way. But I have to ask, anyone else ever wonder who starts these awards? They're so fun and cool and pretty, I just wish I knew who created them all!

The rules for the Kreativ Blogger Award are:

* Tell my readers 7 things that you don't know about me.
* Tag 7 bloggy friends!

So, seven thing you don't know about me are ...

1. I have gone para-sailing. Yep. I did. On our honeymoon hubby and I were cruising to Labadee, Haiti (Royal Caribbean's private island) and we went para-sailing. It was honestly the most relaxing experience you can imagine. Not scary at all. Seriously, 100% exhilarating. I highly recommend it!

2. I've fallen out of a moving car. Fourth grade. My mom was driving and my brother and I were in the front seat. I remember pushing him back in towards my mom, and feel like I can still see his face, but am not sure if I somehow imagined it and remember what I thought I saw, or if that's really what he looked like.

3. I have gone skiing. ONCE.

4. I volunteered at a Soap Stars charity softball game when I was in college. I met several stars from All My Children and One Life to Live, but mainly remember Casper Van Dien (who later starred in Starship Troopers ... I think) and Sarah Michelle Gellar (pre-Buffy days, and man, she was a beeyotch!) And I do have the pictures to prove it, but I think they're at my parents' house in NY so I cannot scan them now or make them digital.

5. I have seen Jack Wagner in concert more times than I can remember. I also saw him perform in West Side Story (not on Broadway) AND Jekyll and Hyde (ON Broadway.) Love my hubby - who was then my boyfriend - for the J&H experience. It was crazily incredible.

6. I saw Donny & Marie in concert once. Yes, the Osmond siblings. It was a surprise gift for me and my brother. Sssh. Don't tell him I told you that he saw them, too. He might deny it, and then try to find you and destroy any memory you have of this information.

7. I went to my High School prom without a date. I took a limo with my two best friends and their boyfriends, who were brothers. I spent the after-prom hours walking the beach with a male friend who went dateless, as well. We did NOT hook up. We are still friends, although I haven't spoken to him in ages. Which reminds me, I need to get a belated holiday card out to him and his wife. And everyone else on my list, for that matter.

As for the tagging, well ... I'll get to that part tomorrow. I'm too lazy, tired, headachey and I have to go to bed. I went to the movies with friends tonight! Shocking, I know. More on that tomorrow, as well. G'night, everybody!


  1. Congrats on the awards. You totally deserve them.
    AND, very cool post!
    Wow.. Donny and Marie?? Seriously...that's so cool. And meeting all the soap operah stars must have been a blast as well.
    Jack Wagner.... (SWOON). LOVE HIM

    Those are great, thanks for sharing.
    Hope you're headache goes away, and you're back to your awesome self in no time.
    Glad you got a night out with some BFF's as well. Good for the soul ;)

  2. Hey, congrats on your awards! I liked your seven facts about you - very random and funny. I've watched those soaps off and on for many years and remember when those actors were regulars back then. Pretty cool.

  3. Congrats on your awards, girlie! I've only been skiing ONCE, too. It was a little scary for this Southern girl. The bunny slope didn't look so sweet & innocent to my ski-virgin eyes. I couldn't snow plow and I took off at full throttle and screamed the whole way down. Oy!

  4. Congrats on the award! You deserve it.. even if you did see Donnie and Marie IRL! :D

  5. Congrats on your awards :) Happy New year to you, also!! Those are some crazy experiences...ha!

  6. I'm so glad that I tagged you! You certainly deserve it, but really... those are FABULOUS answers. I love that you have seen both Donnie and Marie, as well as Jack Wagner LIVE. Sorry about the car thing but obviously you are still with us. Can't wait to see who you choose -- remember you're a mom. You're never lazy, you're sleep deprived!

  7. Congrats on your awards!

    I "went skiing" once but ended up staying in the condo and playing cards all weekend with my BFF. I found out they needed your weight when you rent the skiis and said "No thanks".

    Happy New Year!

  8. Congrats! I will never tell about the Osborn secret..maybe!!

  9. I saw Jack Wagner in concert once and it was hard to hear him with all the screaming women in the audience! LOL! I also saw Donny Osmond when he was in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat on stage. My mom and I got front row seats so we got to see him up close. :-)

  10. It will be great to watch West Side Story, i have bought tickets from looking forward to it.
