More Bloggy Love: Yay! You Love Me!

Like I've said before, receiving awards just doesn’t get old! Receiving awards means receiving bloggy love and support. And guess how much bloggy love I received this time?!

Six! Yes – six of the loveliest blog awards! Two more Versatile Blogger Awards, one more Liebster Award, One Lovely Blog Award, an Irresistibly Sweet Blogger Award and a Roaring Lion Award!

Yay! You Love Me! And now I'm going to love you back! Because I've got lots of awards to pass on to a group of people who deserve it so much!

I received the Versatile Blogger Award from Aaron at The Blogger Girlz. Check out her blog that she shares with some other awesome blogger girlz. I received another Versatile Blogger Award, a Liebster and a One Lovely Blog Award from Michele over at A Wanderer in Paris. AND, my blogging buddy Crystal over at Little Bundle of Contradictions is handing out the Worlds’s Sweetest Blogger and Roaring Lion awards to those who follow faithfully and leave comment love. Yep, that’s me!

Here are the 7 things about me. Since I recently received other blog awards, I had to think really hard about 7 NEW things, but here they are:

1. I’ve had the same 6 best friends for 38 years. One of us is gone now (see #5), but I still count her in. When we get together? Fun, chaos and shenanigans.

2. Speaking of 38 years, that’s how old I was the last time I went Trick or Treating. I love Halloween and have such fond memories of Trick or Treating that I wanted to experience it again. Plus, I love candy. Just wear a mask and hide your hands! They'll never know *shhh*

3. My only house plant is a barrel cactus. He was an inch tall when I got him in 1995, and now he’s about 6 inches tall. Cacti live for a very long time, so I’m pretty sure I’ll have to assign a guardian for him in my will. We call him little Joe, AKA Cactus Joe. He can be a bit prickly. But when he gets blossoms in the Spring? He's gorgeous and he knows it!

4. I have a very flat and monotone type of humor/personality. (Read: I am not bubbly, never have been). Sometimes people don’t know how to take me. But I swear, I'm really nice!

5. I am faithful, trustworthy and loyal. If I am your friend, I am a friend for life. See #1 above.

6. We absolutely adore our dogs. Their names are Koko and Tuffy - Pit/Australian Shepard/Mutt mix. They are brother and sister, 6 years old. When they were pups I was teaching them to fetch and poop at the same time (no, not simultaneously). But Tuffy was a bit confused one day. When I told him to go poop, he fetched me a piece.  

7. My dirty secret? I watch Jersey Shore. I know, I know - don't hate.

Michael Di Gesu said...

Thanks so much LG... I just love getting awards too. I really must do a post like this one because I have about six awards piled up myself.

Congrats to the other winners too. It's always a wonderful thing to share blog love.

Lady Gwen said...

Michael, you're welcome! It's a lot of work to distribute the awards, but people do so love to receive them!

Shallee said...

Aw, thanks for the blog award! And congrats on your own awards!

Michael Offutt said...

Congrats on the award and I will be making a post for these this week. Thank you so much for honoring me. :)

Caitlin said...

Gwen I share your dirty little secret! As well as your love for Trick or Treating. Super excited that my daughter is old enough to walk around for Trick or Treating this year, I'm so cleaning out the candy since she's not actually old enough to eat it, hehe.

And thank you so much for the awards! It means a lot to me that you chose to pass them on to me!

Lady Gwen said...

Caitlin, cool! And I understand that you have to filter through the candy - you couldn't possibly let the kiddo eat all of it, lol! You're very welcome for the award, it was my pleasure~

Joyce Lansky said...

Thanks for the sweet award. I'll take it!

Sheri L. Swift said...

Thank you so much for honoring me with these awards. I've already gotten all 3 of them, I know, I keep them on the bottom of my post. I still wanted to thank you! ; )

Anita Grace Howard said...

Look at all your awesome awards! WOW! CONGRATS! And thanks so much for the Sweet one. :) I've already received that a couple of times, so I'll see if I can come up with some other list of seven that won't bore my readers. There's only so much I can say about me. LOL!

Elizabeth Spann Craig/Riley Adams said...

Congratulations! And thanks so much for the award. :) I really appreciate it!

Michelle said...

Thank you! I'm doing my happy dance right now - trust me, you don't want to see it!

Thanks again.

Michelle, you're welcome - I'd still love to see that dance, though!
