You Like Me! You Really REALLY Like Me!!!

Today, I received my first award! YAY!!! Cue "We Are The Champions" by Queen as I do my victory dance. **really lame dance on par with the weird jerky-dance of Elaine on Seinfled**

Whew!! Okay, now that I've blinded all my followers :( I shall tell you a little bit about it. Are you ready???? Here it is!



Isn't it pretty? This award was presented to me by the wonderful Caitlin. If you do not already follow her, you should. Do it now! Did you follow her? Good! :)

As with all blog awards (at least the ones worth getting), there are a few suggestions as to how best to accept said award. Being the stickler for rules that I am (ahahahaha! I crack myself up!) I shall pay this forward.

1. Thank and link back to the person who gave you this award.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Pass the award along to 15 bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic for whatever reason! (In no particular order...)
4. Contact the bloggers you've picked and let them know about the award.

Seven Things About Me That You Might Not Know....Yet :)

1. I spy on my neighbors...well, only the ones I think might be serial killers
2. I'm deathly afraid of bridges over water, snakes, and earthen basements.
3. For some reason, every animal I have ever owned grew to be 3x bigger than normal.
4. I am a rabid Red Wings fan.
5. I have a tiny (okay huge) geek crush on Matthew Gray Gubler (plays Reid on Criminal Minds)
6. I could eat sushi every day of the week and twice on Sunday and still love it.
7. I'm writing this blog post when I should be beta reading...Sorry Liz :(

Now, those AWESOME bloggers who are receiving this award from little old me, their links, and why you should check them out...

1. Cynthia Reese because she writes kick ass contemporay romance that gives me hope that not only will I find the man of my dreams, but I may actually be able to write a romance without having to add in ghosts or angels or zombies :)

2. Kelly Breakey because she and I are working very hard to have Thursday be named the new Friday. Please join us in starting our weekends early. Our campaign needs your support!

3. Remilda Graystone because her Friday Finds are kick ass and her teasers are gripping.

4. Tawna Fenske because she really cracks my sh*t up! Her books come out August 2011 (shameless promo) and because if I hadn't started blog/Twitter stalking her, I wouldn't have found...

5. Linda Grimes who is the funniest, snarkiest chic. Probably because she only visits reality every now and then ;)

6. Liz Page who currently holds the Kick-Ass Beta award. Yeah, I know the prize is for recently discovered, but she needs to be mentioned!

7. Annie McElfresh for holding awesome contests, writing great paranormal YA, and being a fellow Supernatural fan girl. We need to start a campaign to have John Wincester brought back from the dead...just saying ;)

8. Jill Wheeler a great writer who I've been slacking on commenting on her posts, but I have been reading them!

9. Cory Jackson for keeping all us up to date with conference news, holding contests, and being an all-around fantastic blogger!

10. Kate Hart because well...she's great and I am hooked on her Field Trip Friday Twitter version blog posts :)

11. Bri because I just love her WIP BUILDING FORTS and can't wait to read more

12. Caitlin O'Connell for writing such a great epistolary novel as LETTERS TO OLIVER that I was inspired to write my own epistolary-esque novel...not historical or magical but still...

13. Caitlin Darrel (TOC...the other Caitlin...I may or may not have read too much John Green lately. lol) the instigator of this whole award and also the writer of my fave tease this week :) (although this list is in no particular order, I am secretly glad she ended up as lucky number 13)

14. The ladies at GotYA because these bitches rock...er...I mean that in the nicest way possible :)

15. Kara who thinks she's been a terrible blogger lately but she is made of win!
