This is another super belated blog post that I’ve been meaning to write for… umm, forever now. (I can’t remember how long I’ve been sitting on this one. When dates fail me, I usually opt for reckoning time with infinity.)
I was given this award by the lovely Miss Buffy of the Storytime With Buffy Blog. She is a delightful gal living in London and she is a horrid horrid bookworm like me. Only she talks about her books much more than I do. Which I hope to soon remedy. (Gonna start doing more book reviews and catch up with you, chick! *shakes fist!*)
It’s always really nice to know that someone likes your blog. I ultimately blog for myself, it’s a kind of an acceptable narcissism and creative time waster in my life, but when someone else says, “Hey, I read this thing you wrote. And it’s not awful.” It just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. So this award is kind of sweet. And I’m more than happy to pay it forward to the blogs that I find worth reading!

5 SUPER SWEET QUESTIONS
1. Cookies or Cake?
Cake. Cookies are too easy to make. When I want to indulge my mouth hole with sweet sugary decadence I want to go with something that I am either too lazy or too unskilled to make myself.
2. Chocolate or Vanilla?
This really depends on the food! But as a general rule, I tend to go with vanilla over chocolate.
3. Favorite Sweet Treat?
Yeah, don’t ask this of a pregnant lady if you’re not expecting a response that is about 20,000 pages long. My favorite sweet treat is whatever sweet edible morsel happens to be in front of my face.
4. When Do You Crave Sweet Things The Most?
When I see them. I’m an out of sight, out of mind type when it comes to desserts. So I’d have to say when I’m at the grocery store and I pass the bakery section. Then I buy ALL DA SWEET THINGS!
5. Sweet Nick Name?
Sweet Muffin Butt Loaf Cake. (I am not joking in the least when I say that I have called my husband this on multiple occasions. I’m not really good at this whole pet names thing….)
NOMINEES FOR THIS SUPER SWEET BLOGGING AWARD
(In no particular order.)
A sweet gal and IRL friend, Pip is a fellow nerdtastic Browncoat and long time blogger. (Or at least it seems long-time to me, being so new to this whole blogging venture! Haha!)
An inspiring gal, this blog is run by a fellow Christian mother and wife that loves to share her thoughts and discoveries with those around her!
3. Paddy Hobbs
I recently discovered this blog, but in the short time I’ve been following it, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed reading! Run by an IT student with a great taste in hobbies and interests!
A photoblog of a boy in the Philippines, it started as a private blog for family, and now it’s public so nosy girls like me can ooohhh and ahhhh and follow along on this sweet family adventure.
Another great IRL friend, Amber is a nerdy mother of six. Her blog is updated frequently with short stories, photos, family updates and general awesomeness. I highly recommend checking her out!
A lovely gal in the process of chronicling her journey and the experiences that shape her. Another blog I’ve only been following for a short time, but I really do enjoy what I’ve seen so far!
I’m not in the habit of following business blogs, but this one just tickles my fancy. I have recently discovered a love of antique and estate jewelry (my wedding ring is an antique Edwardian), and this blog is eye candy for my soul.
His photography puts mine to shame, so I both love and loathe looking at this blog, haha. It’s inspiring and refreshing. Always happy to see a new post in my Reader from Big Ganga!
Their blog tag line says it all – “From marital bliss to cosplay awesomeness”. I can count on one hand the number of happily married couples that are hardcore cosplayers in my life. Since my husband and I are happily wedded cosplay geeks ourselves, I’m naturally partial to this amazing blog. Check them out!
A writer and an intellectual nerd. I very rarely spend my time reading word-heavy blogs (I have to have a healthy balance of eye candy and ramblings to capture my attention) but her style is so compelling I always find myself stopping to read her full posts!
11. Mama Bree
One of my good IRL friends, and a mother of four. Along with Amber (Crafty Book Goddess), I bullied her into making her blog. So I take partial credit for all the awesomeness found here. ^_^
12. J and J Plus Two
Another blog I’ve recently discovered! I have found that I am an absolute sucker for family blogs. This chick is currently expecting TWINS! I like trolling her posts and reading about her happy married life!
And yet another blog I’ve recently discovered! Run by a hairdressing student, avid knitter and comic book fiend. I need to stop discovering fun blogs because I’m quickly running out of time to sit and read! Haha!
