Fabulous Blog Ribbon

Anyone who knows me or has even read my blog for any amount of time knows I hate mornings, Mondays and EXPECIALLY Monday mornings.  Today was no exception.  After a restless night, it took everything in me to get up and start my day and the day has been a typical Monday full of aggrevations and irritations until a few minutes ago, when my day got brightened with one little email.

Thank you, Kelly!! Writer of the awesome blog, Dysfunctionally Functional.

In the "Blogosphere", there are little recognitions that Bloggers bestow upon each other in recognition and appreciation for other Blog(er)s.  Yesterday, Kelly bestowed a new one on my blog presenting me with the "Fabulous Blog Ribbon" which will be proudly displayed on my blog.  However, accepting imposes certain requirments upon me.

In order to accept you must:
  1. Post the rules on your blog.
  2. Name five of your most fabulous moments, either in real life or in the blogosphere.
  3. Name five things you love.
  4. Name five things you hate.
  5. Pass the ribbon on to five other bloggers. (Leave them a comment to notify them of their win.)
5 Fabulous Moments
  1. Giving birth to my son. 
  2. Receiving my diploma. 
  3. Divorcing my ex-husband. 
  4. Scuba diving at the base of the Piton Mountains in St. Lucia
  5. Getting my camera back after it had been stolen (with some very compromising photos of me still on it).  You'd have to read about it or have been there. 
5 Things I Love
  1. My children, family and friends.  I don't know what I'd do without them, and couldn't imagine my life without them. 
  2. Good food (and cooking good food).
  3. Traveling and experiencing new adventures.
  4. Being creative.  Whether it's writing, taking pictures, coming up with a new receipe or just coming up with an outside the box idea to get something done, creativity is a fuel that feeds my soul and lifts my spirits. 
  5. Interesting and intelligent conversations. 
5 Things I Hate
  1. Cockroaches.  Ewww...is any explaination needed?
  2. Laundry.   
  3. Being late or others being habitually late.  It gets under my skin and causes me anxiety. 
  4. Mornings...Mondays...and especially Monday mornings.
  5. Small crowded places. 
5  Other Bloggers To Pass The Ribbon To  
    (There are way more than 5 bloggers I feel deserving but I will tag only 5 in the hopes of cutting down on the amount of repeats any one blogger gets as these can be time consuming when tagged in several task oriented posts.)

  9. Thanks for the ribbon! I didn't even know there was such a thing.

    I hate cockroaches worse than spiders.

    Spiders...bring 'em on!

    1. I'm the same way. Spiders are interesting. They come in all sorts of sizes, shapes and colors, make really cool webs (except when they're in your house or on your windows, or even worse hiding inconspiculously across a walkway for you to walk right through). Cockroaches on the other hand...not near as cool or interesting. Just straight up DISGUSTING!
