Thought I'd acknowledge the wonderful awards I got recently.  You guys are so awesome and I really am truly thankful we've become friends through our blogs!

Erica and Christy gave me two awards:

Thanks Girls- hope on over to their blog, they are two funny moms who teach, and you get two bloggers for the price of one!

Colene from The Journey gave me the Irresistible Blog Award!  Thank you to a great Crit Partner!

I also got the beautiful Magical Blog Award from Alexia Chamberlynn over at The Life and Literary Persuits of Alexia Chamberlynn  Thank you so much Alexia- and it's a gorgey award.

And then I just got two Honest Scrap awards- one from Kelly Dexter over at Nerdville Rhapsody, and the other from Lisa Galek over at Read.Write.Repeat.  Thanks so much girls- go check our their blogs.  Kelly recently started back up again from a hiatus (we missed you!) and Lisa is brilliant and is a Religious Studies major like me!

So I think I'm supposed to say some facts about myself for some of these, but I answered this a while back when I got the awards earlier, so I'll link you to that post: 7 facts about Me.

I'll go ahead and do 3 more to get to 10:
1. I am obsessed with all things Buffy the Vampire Slayer- my computer is named Buffy
2. My husband has an identical twin
3. I have a minor in communication, but have terrible social anxiety- go figure.

So now I'd like to pass these on to these wonderful bloggers:  You can choose any of the awards or all 4 of them!
Andy Thompson over at Writing Myself Crazy
Colene Murphy over at The Journey
Melissa Wideen over at Throught The Lookingglass
Lisa Galek over at Read.Write.Repeat
Jennie Bailey over at Garden Full of Lily
Donea Lee over at Queen of Procrastination
Anne Kenny over at Writers Quandary
Jen Daiker at Unedited
Angela Darling over at Chasing Fairydust

*edited- OMG I am so sorry to Sam and Maggie- I mixed up their blogs!  *facepalm*  See, this is what I get when I try to rush and do a million things at once!  Love you both!

You all rock, and seriously- I love all of you that read my drivel blog.  If you're not on the list (honestly because I got tired of doing all the links), go ahead and take any of these awards for yourself because I love you too!

Come back Monday because I've got an awesome Aspiring Author interview with our bloggy friend Jennie Bailey!

Yeay! Thank you Abby!!
Congrats on all your awards you totally deserve!!

Donea Lee said...

Ahhh, thanks Abby!! :) This is so very sweet of you!! *hugs*

Ok - and I'm totally not just saying this, but BtVS is also my ALL time favorite show!! It's the only series I own on DVD! (Ok - not true, I also own "Angel"). And one more funny coincidence? I also minored in Communications, but absolutely abhor public speaking (or, well...public anything!) Too funny. :)

Have a great weekend!

Congratulations on all those awards!

Melissa said...

Congrats on all those awards! They are well deserved and thank you, so much, for thinking of me!

It's so sweet.

I want you to know that I really, really do appreciate it!

I've been awful at thanking people and passing on awards the last while and have a drawer full of need to thanks. I think I'm just going to make my own award because otherwise the post would be too long.

Library Gal said...

Congrats Abby! Well-deserved. I'm obsessed with Buffy too:)

Thanks for sharing so many awesome facts! I adore How I Met Your Mother, and Lily and Marshall are my favorite TV couple. They are too sweet and it makes me so happy when they call each other Marshmellow and Lilypad.

Also, I love Wicked. I was fortunate enough to see it on Broadway not long after it opened, and I will never forget how unbelievable Idina and Kristin are live.

erica and christy said...

You rox (as some of my author-friends like to say to each other when we're having fun).

I also love Lily and Marshall, although I've been married way too long (sigh) to be compared to them (it gets better, though, so I'm happy).

Hubby and I totally had an only. We loved him. Cherished him. Told everyone how proud we had an only. Then we had #2. An oops. And totally loved, cherished, and talked about.

I've never seen Wicked. I can't, the book traumatized me completely. Not kidding.

Oh, wait, this is about you, sorry. Love your blog. Can't wait to read your book.
(shoot, one more thing - I totally am going to write a book about a hubby with an identical twin who loves Buffy!!!)

Jennie Bailey said...

Congrats on your awards! And thanks for passing one along to me. An award AND the Monday interview. You spoil me! ;-)

Kristin Rae said...

I'm a recent Buffy lover too! Just watched the entire series, then moved on to Angel after that. I love that you named your computer Buffy! I was actually thinking that I'd name a pet that in the future :)

Lisa said...

Thanks, Abby! Go religious studies majors!

Wendy aka Quillfeather said...

Congrats on all your awards, Abby!

Thanks for following my blog too :)

Abby Minard said...

Aw, you guys are all so sweet! Love you all!

Sam said...

-grins- Maggie and I are practically synonymous anyway. It's easier in real life--she's shorter and has better hair. :P
Thank you very much. -bounces some- Pretty Eiffel tower...
