One Lovely Blog and Kreativ Blogger Awards

This was a nice surprise! Lisa at Diary of a Square Toothed Girl honored me with two blogging awards: One Lovely Blog and Kreativ Blogger. Thanks, Lisa! I wholeheartedly recommend following her blog if you haven't yet.

As a condition of accepting these awards, I just need to answer a few questions, provide ten facts about myself, and pass the awards along to seven more blogs. Let's start with the questions and answers.

What is your favorite song?

Favorite song? Are you kidding? That probably changes every time anybody asks me. Instead, how about I tell you which one is in my head right now? It's "Little Talks," by Of Monsters and Men. If you haven't seen the video, I recommend checking it out; it's fantastic.

What is your favorite dessert?

Are you trying to trip me up? All I can say for sure is that chocolate has to be involved--well, unless it's fresh peach or blueberry pie. I prefer fresh peach and blueberry pies to their baked counterparts.

When you are upset, what do you do?

That depends on how upset I am and why. If I can pull it off, the best thing for me to do is just take a nap. I'm usually calmer when I wake up.

What was my favorite pet?

Favorite pet? I can't possibly choose. They've all been special.

What do you prefer to wear, black or white?

Probably black. White clothes get ruined too easily when you tend to spill things.

What is your biggest fear?

I don't even like to type the word, but it's those eight-legged creepy crawlies.

What is your attitude mostly?

I'm pretty realistic most of the time, but I do get my occasional bouts of pessimism.

What is perfection to you?

I guess it would be when everything goes the way I think it should.

What is your guilty pleasure?

All I can think of is when I finally eat something that contains wheat after going a few days without any wheat at all.

Now, for ten random facts about me:

1. I used to be a voracious reader but slacked off considerably, so I recently signed up at Goodreads as an incentive to read more.

2. I'm a listmaker from way back. I even make lists of lists to make!

3. I'm pretty forgetful, so it's a good thing I make all those lists.

4. It really bothers me when I'm watching something and the sound and picture aren't in synch.

5. I'm always surprised when one of my favorite shows gets renewed for another season. Most of my favorites throughout the years didn't last long.

6. I'm never surprised when one of my favorite products gets discontinued or "improved" in a way that makes me hate it.

7. Black plums are probably my favorite fruit, and I'd never even tried one until a few years ago.

8. Broccoli is by far my favorite green veggie. I don't like it raw, though.

9. I like those peanut butter kisses that are only available around Halloween. You know--the chewy peanut butter candies wrapped in wax paper. Some have orange wrappers and some have black ones.

10. I drink more water more than anything else.

Last but certainly not least, I'd like to pass these awards along to the following terrific bloggers:

Becca at Lost in Thought
Betsy at My Five Men
Dana at The Daily Dose
Kate at The Suddenly Kate Show
Janna at Pastry and Poetry
notes4neta at Rabbit Trails
Sherri at Sherri's Graphomania

Thanks! I'm like you, I dont wear white because it gets stained to easily and I try to curb the amount of wheat I eat too. I had two hot rolls with my lunch today. Talk about splurge! :)

Eliza Wynn said...

We have a few wheat-free days every week. I'd like to add more, but I'm not ready yet.

Betsy said...

we love the same kinds of pie...and chocolate!

tnanks so much for the award! And it was great to learn more about you!

Dana said...

Congrats, and thanks for thinking of me! I also go nuts when the picture and sound aren't in sync. And number nine: I love them, too! :)

notes4neta said...

Thanks for the award! I'm honored! :)
Yes, I wore white today and spilled stuff on it. I love white in the summer, but rarely wear it in the winter. I'm too pale to make it work!

Janna said...

Thanks for the award! I too am a maker of lists, but not a checker-offer of lists. I've also almost stopped watching shows while they are on air, since I've been crushed too many times when they get canceled. Now I wait so that I know what I'm getting into.

Martha said...

Congrats on your awards :)

Thank you for the awards :) Sorry I'm a bit late getting back to you I was away over the weekend. I was given the Kreativ Blogger award by two others a few weeks ago and haven't yet written a post so will do it all in one post asap and answer all the questions too :) Thanks again!

Eliza Wynn said...

Thanks, Betsy! I wish I didn't like those pies so much.

Eliza Wynn said...

Dana, I've never understood why those candies aren't more popular. I've always liked them.

Eliza Wynn said...

Notes4neta, it's definitely hard to wear black in the summer. It's just too hot.

Eliza Wynn said...

Janna, I mostly have to watch shows when they're still in the air. Otherwise, I'll hear or read spoilers, and I hate it when that happens.

Eliza Wynn said...

Thanks, Martha!

Eliza Wynn said...

Becca, I think the questions are for One Lovely Blog, so if you answer them, be sure to get that badge in addition to the other one.

Eliza Wynn said...

I have no idea why I didn't think to combine all those into one reply!

Dana said...

Hi! Just wanted you to know that I mentioned your awards in today's post. Thanks again!
