Reader Appreciation Award


I would like to give a big THANK YOU to Millie of the blog Millieonherworld.  She has nominated me for a Reader Appreciate Award.  Even though I am super late with responding back to this, I am truly grateful for the nomination.  So, let me get down to the nitty gritty of this nomination…


  1. Link back to the person who nominated you.
  2.  Attach the icon to your site.
  3.  Answer the attached questions.
  4. Nominate six bloggers who you feel deserve this award and notify them about their nominations.


1. What is your favorite color?

Blues and Greens.  Even better, mix them together and make a nice teal or turquoise!

2. What is your favorite animal? 

I guess I would have to say dogs.  Elephants and Giraffes are pretty cute, but only if they are on something involving babies and appear in bright, unnatural colors.

3. What is your favorite non-alcoholic drink?

Sweet Tea…. I could drink this all day, every day.

4. What is your favorite number?

I don’t really have one, but my husband’s is 27, so I tag onto that number usually.

5. What is your favorite day of the week?

Saturday.  A full day with my husband with no need to go to bed early!

6. What is your favorite flower?

I love them all.  I love the smell of Lillies and Roses best though.  They are all so pretty I just can’t decide.  When my husband buys me flowers, the bouquet always features tons of different flowers.  He knows me so well.

7. What is your passion?

Still trying to figure that out….

8. Do you watch television?

I could start a blog about nothing but television.  Maybe TV is my passion? Hmm….

My husband and I watch the following shows:  Community, Parks and Rec., The Office, The Big Bang Theory, Mad Men, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, The Middle, Modern Family, Downton Abbey, Bones, Pawn Stars, Storage Wars, Kitchen Nightmares, New Girl, Weeds……

Then by myself I watch everything else…. Friends, The New Adventures of Old Christine, River Monsters (watching this as I type), Say Yes to the Dress, What Not to Wear, Sex and the City, Property Brothers, Income Property, Holmes on Homes, anything shown on the ID channel…. this is just scratching the surface people.  I LOVE TV!  hehe  Don’t judge me.

9. Who is your favorite author?

I’m not big on having one author that I love to follow, but if I had to pick one, it would be Nathaniel Hawthorne.  I know, OLD SCHOOL!  I can’t help it though.  Ever since I was assigned Young Goodman Brown in college, I was in love with his writing, his view on society, and the way he truly makes you think.

I also enjoy a mix of tons of other writers, some old and some new.  I don’t typically like the books that are all the hype, such as Twilight and The Hunger Games.  I’ve read them, but I wouldn’t re-read them.  I’m not sure if it’s because they are popular and I rebel against that type of thing, or because I just don’t care for them.  I do, however, love Harry Potter. 🙂

10. Do you like 80s movies?

Of course!

11. How do you like your eggs?

Fertilized! haha!  Couldn’t resist…. this is an infertility blog after all!  In all seriousness though, scrambled. Yum!

12. When did you discover blogging?

I’ve read blogs for a number of years, but I didn’t personally start blogging until June of last year.  It has been an amazing experience though!

13. Why do you like to blog?

It helps to get your problems written down and sent out into the world where you can hear from others who have been in similar situations or can offer helpful advice.  I’m sure I would have lost my mind during the IVF process if I had not had so many kind people helping me through.  Thank you!


—This is the part where I am supposed to pick a few people to honor with a nomination.  If you’ve read my previous post with a liebster nomination, you will know that I don’t follow rules very well.  I love every single blog that I follow, so picking a few would never work for me.  Plus, I know that some people are constantly nominated and have trouble keeping up with the demands.  So, like I did last time, I nominate everyone who follows me.  If you’d like to answer these questions, and have a good time letting us in on some of your thoughts, we’d all enjoy it!  I hope you all enjoyed my answers!
