Boooooooya!!! I thought I would change the Site up just a tad... I have been thinking about changing the "Look" of my page for a while and decided that this week was as good as any. So, let me know: What do you think???
Well, I said last week that I would follow up this week on the "Set of Rules" that go along with being awarded the Awards for Slu's World. There were two and so, my work is cut out for me. But, there is a "but," so hang in there.
Usually, with these awards, they stipulate that you Link back to the Fellow Blogger that bestowed the award to you, that you display the award on your sidebar, that you list several things about yourself, and finally, that you pass on the award to other very deserving Bloggers.
Well, the first two in that "set" are very easy. The second two in that "set" are downright hard. So, here is where the "but" comes into play. I'm going to change up the "Set of Rules" just a bit. You know... Blogger Discretion!!!
So, here is the deal: When you get right down to it, these awards get handed out quite frequently and therefore, a lot of the Bloggers that I know have already received these two awards. I don't want to be redundant and so... here is what I am going to do:
The Very Inspiring Blogger Award
The Epically Awesome Award of Epic Awesomeness
2: I have a little OCD at the Gas Pump... Check out this pic:
3: I'm known as the "Yo-Yo-Yo Man" on the School Bus.
4: I am a Pandora listening "Freak-a-Zoid." Love my music.
5: Top Chef is my favorite TV Show (not counting football).
8: No more "mixers" for my Whiskey & Vodka: Both just straight up... :-)
9: Going Tent Camping today. Has been a long time. Love Camping...
10: I absolutely love a good Cigar... Ahhhhhh, this weekend!!!
|A few months ago: That would be ME in the middle... (with the Cigar)|
12: Speaking of Coffee... I love my Keurig Coffee Maker. So Simple!!!
13: Speaking of Dr. Pepper (or Diet Coke): If the time allows, I stick it in the freezer for about 15 to 20 minutes before I drink it. I like it really cold. And then, after opening it... Those first few swallows, when it's really cold, which allows that BURN sensation in your throat... HOLY SMOKES!!! That's what I'm talking about.
OK, I have not mentioned Donna in my first 13... On purpose, no less. So, I will close with:
14: Finally, does it get any better than being out on your Patio, maybe at a Restaurant, on their Patio, in nice weather, with your Woman (that would be Donna)... (Insert Man here if you are female), Libations in hand, maybe a cigar, maybe with some friends as well, listening to some good music, and just chatting & smiling the night away??? Winning!!! (think of: "around the camp-fire this weekend)
15: And for good measure... Have I ever mentioned how MUCH I LOVE my WIFE??? Just sayin'
Follow Me Home... By Michele: A peek into their house with Michele and her Husband, their 3 Kids, and as of recently, 2 Dogs. In a very witty and charming way, you will find your smile as you get to know the Marriott's. One of my Fave's...
Rum Punch Drunk... I call him RPD: Here, you will find an excellent Blog that will "Stimulate discussion and the free flow of ideas, as well as provoke thought." After a very interesting read, you could spend another hour reading the many comments from his readers that will just blow you away. Absolutely worth your time...
Baking In A Tornado... By Karen: A Mom of two teenage boys in High School, from Boston, but living in the Midwest. Her Blog aims to "Bake, Laugh, and sometimes Rant through some difficult times." Yes, Bake... you will always find an amazing recipe from Karen's kitchen on her Blog. You should check it out...
Just Keepin' It Real, Folks... By Deb: A succinct look at the real world, in a humorous way. Often times, straight from the news itself. For me, JKIRF is new on my radar and I am lovin' it. She keeps it "short & sweet," but highly entertaining. I hope you will check her out.
Go Momma... By Josie B: From the UK, but living in the Hill Country of Texas. She is a "Stay at Home" Mom of 3 little ones. A "No-Holds Barred" look at life while raising 3 at once... Comedy & Spice(y) is what you'll find on her Blog. Be sure and give her a visit.
Mari's Notebook... By Marisol: She is a College Student living in New York City. Her Blog is "About anything and everything that comes to mind--books, movies, fashion, beauty, style, recipes, design, current events, and the daily dramas, musings, and daydreams of a nineteen-year-old making her way through college in this economy." I love her Blog and I hope you will give it a look.
Marisol... I truly hope you enjoy this Award and as per me: You set your own "Set of Rules" with it. Don't feel like you have to do anything. Totally up to you (But I do hope you will "hang" it in your Buttons & Awards tab). Congrats on a great Blog.
