Blog awards mashup 2

Blog award badge

I feel very honoured to be recognized by fellow bloggers with award nominations.  I was nominated for the Liebster Award by Funky Chrissy, the Blogger Appreciation Award by A Balancing Act, and the Versatile Blogger Award by Scarlett’s BPD Corner and Therapy Bits.  Thanks so much to all of you – you’re amazing!!!  I like doing these award post because they’re a great chance to spread the love.  The blogs that nominated me are all fabulous, so please check them out if you haven’t already.  With the nominees I chose I’ve tried to pick blogs I haven’t nominated before and that I think you might not be familiar with yet.  So definitely go have a look!  And for those I’ve nominated, please don’t feel in any way obligated to do an award post – I know they can be a lot to take on.  And if you decide to do an award post, feel free to take your sweet time 🙂

Ok, here we go!

Liebster Award

This seems to be the magically morphing award.  I’ve had a few of these, and it’s always a different award image, rules, etc.  Sometimes it’s an award for new bloggers, and sometimes it’s not.  Maybe it should be renamed the kitchen sink award!


1.) Acknowledge the blogger who nominated your blog.
2.) Answer their questions.
3.) Nominate 11 other new bloggers to encourage them.
4.) Ask them 11 questions.
5.) Let them know you have nominated them.

Questions from Chrissy:

1.) If you were to own a prehistorical animal, which one would you choose and why? A pterodactyl, because flying could be fun.
2.) If you had the chance to go to school for free, what would you study to be? Probably a PhD in nursing.
3.) What movie do you not want to see a remake of?  I think they never should have made a remake of Dirty Dancing.  Nothing could have possibly lived up to the original.
4.) Would you rather live way back in the past or in the future…and why?  I think I’d be inclined to think the past, before I got sick.
5.) What moment of your life do you wish you could relive forever?  I don’t think I have a single moment, but probably my most interesting experiences have been while travelling.
6.) If you had to perform your least favourite song on stage, what song would it be?  If it was me performing, it wouldn’t make much difference whether it would be least or most favorite song, because it would all sound equally bad,
7.) If you were to give your best friend a pet name instead of a person name, what would it be?  One of my pet guinea pigs is named Cookie, or Cookie Monster for short (ok, I know it’s not actually shorter, but whatever).  I think that would be a good person name.
8.) What do you think you are much better at than you actually are?  Possibly driving, because other people think I drive too fast.
9.) If mythical creatures existed, which group would you hang out with? Which group do you think would be the A List group?  I guess it depends what we mean by mythical.  In terms of old school mythical, phoenix all the way.  And I don’t know if this counts as new school mythical, but the whole She-Ra/He-Man situation sounds like a fun little gang.
10.) What are you interested in that most people aren’t?  I am a geek and like to learn new things.  I watch continuing medical education webinars and read research papers just for the hell of it.
11.) What TV show character would it be the most fun to change places with for a week and why?  Jem from Jem and the Holograms.  Yes, I know I’m dating myself what that reference.

My nominees:  I’m not very creative at coming up with questions, so I’m going to pass on to my nominees the same questions that Chrissy asked me.

Blogger Appreciation Award

The rules:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link back to their site.
  • Write a paragraph of something positive about yourself.
  • Nominate and notify as many bloggers as you wish.
  • Use the Blogger Appreciation Award Image.

Something positive:

I am a good guinea pig mom.  I have 5 little munchkins, and I give them a happy home with lots of love and lots of fresh vegetables.  They are active, chatty, and engaged, all signs of healthy piggies.  It’s the one area of my life where I feel like my level of functioning isn’t impaired at all, which is reassuring, and I get a lot of benefit from my informal emotional support animals.

Versatile Blogger Award


  1. Thank the person who gave you this award and link to their blog.
  2. List 7 things about yourself.
  3. Nominate 10 to 20 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award.

7 Things about me:

  1. As I write this I’m visiting my grandma, who is 101 years old!!!
  2. I could happily eat cheeseburgers and cheesecake all the time.
  3. I try to be very organized.  I rely on a spreadsheet to keep track of all things blog-related.
  4. I have cold feet and wear socks all the time.  Yup, even in bed.
  5. I will be turning 40 in just over a year.  I used to think it would be a big deal, but now I realize it’s just another number.
  6. I don’t own a suitcase.  Backpack all the way!
  7. I think my next trip is going to be to Slovenia and Croatia.

My nominees:

Alright folks, there you have it!  Again, thanks so much to Funky Chrissy, A Balancing Act, Scarlett’s BPD Corner, and Therapy Bits for the nominations ❤️  Please check out the various blogs I’ve mentioned because they’re all wonderful 🙂

  1. Discovering your blog through My Inner MishMash and loving it. When I get my feed reader to work again, I’ll follow you. Just now that I see your name, I realize you’ve liked quite a few of my posts and probably commented on some too, but I’m terrible with keeping track of this.

  2. Aaack!! You nominated me!! I just now noticed! I was wondering, “Has she ever nominated me?” And there I am!! Oh boy. I’m going to make a fun post with this right now!!
