The Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award!

I was given my first blogger award this week (The Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award) by the beautiful, talented and beloved Anita Grace Howard!

There are requirements for accepting the award. The most important one is that it must be passed on to others. The other rules are listed below the list of award winners I've chosen.

Thank you, Anita. *drooling* over strawberries!

Bequeathed to:

L.A. Sherman
Robbi Bryant
Catherine Mesick

And along with the strawberry goodness comes these original rules:

The original rules:

1. Thank and link to the person who nominated you.
2. Share seven random facts about yourself.
3. Pass the award along to 5 deserving blogging buddies.
4. Contact those buddies to congratulate them


My new rules...

Replace #2 above with one sentence that best describes who you are.

Must give the award to at least 6 people instead of 5.

1. I was nominated by Anita Grace Howard!


I want to be called a storyteller.

I need to learn how to swim.

My kids are angels to everyone else, but little imps to me.

Don't really care for sports.

I really need to get a kindle.

Writing was always a hobby of mines.

I count the spouse as an extra kid in the house.

3. My list is above.

4. Everyone contacted.

Congratulations to all of the winners! More awards coming real soon! I am going to be honest, I don't like to visit any of your blogs, because it makes me feel like an amateur. Okay I said it, I am jealous of you all!


  1. Thanks, Renee! This is great. Now can you give me some real strawberries and cream instead of just a picture? LOL.

  2. I'm sorry, Rene. I spelled your name wrong in my last post. And I love how you said you count your hubby as the extra kid. :)

  3. LOL! AWESOME list. Fantastic new rules! ;) And you are so not an amateur. At least no more than the rest of us. I'm still learning things about writing every day. I think that's why I like writing most of all. Because there's always room for growth. And I do lurv me a challenge. ;)

    Your seventh detail cracked me up! LOL

    Congrats to all of the nominees! I'll drop by your blogs soon to have a look-see. Great job and have a good weekend, Rene! ;) Oh, and thanks so much for your lovely compliments. :)

  4. @L.A. Sherman don't worry I am happy as long as I know who you are talking too. LOL

    I had strawberries and creme when I first started, but I ate them while going through names. I am sorry, the next time I will share first. And the spouse makes a bigger mess around the house than the kids!

    Thanks and it took me about 2 hours to figure out I couldn't just copy and paste from your site. LOL Glad you liked the #7 one. When I was going through people's blog I realize every one of you were so passionate in the way you all wrote things. Even if it was at times a random thought, it came across well. I will get there!

  5. Awww! Thanks Rene! You know I already love you! And for the record, YOU ARE A STORYTELLER!

  6. Yay, Rene! Congrats on your delectable award ;)

  7. Nothing but love for you too L.J.!

  8. Congrats! What an adorable award!

  9. Congratulations on your award. I'm a new follower and I look forward to reading your posts.

    PS. I love my Kindle. I hope you can join the club soon. :)

  10. Thanks Libby! The moment I saw the strawberries, I was in love with it lol.

    Thanks Kari! I feel like I'm the only person in the world without a Kindle. Don't worry I will be joining the club real soon!

    I look forward to reading everyone's blog posts. I am happy that I figured out how to get update notifications finally!

  11. Congrats on your award, Rene! I like this from your profile (and saw it repeated here on the award), that you are a storyteller..."Rene doesn't like to be called an author or writer. She strongly believes the term Storyteller is more appropriate for her." Have you ever read, "Women Who Run With The Wolves" by Clarissa Pinkola Estes PhD? She delves beautifully and deftly into the history of the "archtype" woman, and tells stories about the wise woman, the Spirit Woman, old mothers, Shamans and storytellers--and how about every culture has them--the wise women, the teller of sooths and stories... And she talks about how women have repressed the archetype within, to conform to cultural, societal and religious norms. I am following you now, by the way. :-)

  12. Thank you so much for coming Teresa! I have never read "Women Who Run With The Wolves" but I will be reading it real soon. Clarissa sounds like a very wise woman, who I am dying to learn more about. I love what I have heard so far! Thanks for the follow and the inspiring words! :)
