Kreativ Blogging Award – Thank you!

These past few days a really nice award has been circling among the Genealogy Bloggers! I don’t know who started the “tag you’re it” award that allows each of us to pick our seven favorite  blogs to receive it, but I’m certainly grateful to be nominated three times!  Thank you!

Kreativ Blogger Award

Kreativ Blogger Award

I received this Kreativ Blogger award from  three of my favorite  bloggers  to read:

Thomas McAtee from Geneabloggers,

Louise Bernero of Our Twigs Blog,

and Jenna from Desperately Seeking Surnames

I just want to say Thank You all very much!

I appreciate your recognition and encouragement, and this means a lot to me!

Here are the rules for this award:

1. List seven things about yourself that others do not know
2. Copy the award to your site
3. Link to the person from whom you received the award
4. Nominate 7 other bloggers.
5. Link to those sites on your blog.
6. Leave a message on the blogs you nominate.

There’s only one thing I can think of that most people don’t know about me. It’s silly ( it really is, but it’s the truth).

For the other six things, well, I’m pretty sure those aren’t a secret to those who know me best….

1.   The one thing I think no one knows, not even my family, so you’re the first to hear this… I’m honestly still scared of the dark…  Maybe it’s the murder mysteries I read, but I’m just pretty sure the boogeyman is out there somewhere, and who knows, maybe Big Foot really does exist, and maybe the government really was hiding Space Aliens in Area 51.    So, ask me to run outside after dark, haul out the trash, or go out to feed the dog, well, I can and I will, but it’s really outside my comfort zone. And I live in a pretty quiet neighborhood.

2.   I’d rather read than clean house or wash dishes. (this would come as no surprise to anyone in my family!) I love murder mysteries, historical fiction, some romantic historical fiction, all the “Mitford Series” books by Jan Karon, and anything by Max Lucado.

3.   O.K., so this is no secret to anyone, either. I love the puzzle-solving, gotta-find-the-next-family-fact, break-down-that-brick-wall, collect ‘dead relatives,’  build the family tree, and record our family history stories that makes up my family history fun.

4.  I love garage sales! (Going to them, not having them) Which means I bring home more stuff than I get rid of. Which means I’m a pack rat.  (it’s genetic, my mom is a pack rat, too, but a much more organized one than I am…)

5.  I love to take photos. And I’d love to learn how to Photoshop them.

6.   I’m a sucker for a cat with a sweet face and a hungry sounding meow.  That’s probably why we’ve had two extra cats on our porch for the last year. Sinbad, the black and white ‘tuxedo’ cat that has everyone from the mail lady to the UPS guy stopping to pet him, and Boo, a beautiful long-haired Siamese type that has a ‘rusty’ meow.

7.    I cry E-v-e-r-y time I watch “A League of Their Own”, even if we just watched it. It gets down to the last scene,  the reunion scene, and I’m grabbing for the Kleenex box…

There are so many great Blogs, and so many new ones! Thanks to all who inspire me, and here are my Seven Blog Awards!

1.    Greta’s Genealogy Blog

2.    George Geder’s African American Genealogy Blog

3.   Michael Hait –  Hait Family Research

4.    Mavis Jones – Georgia Black Crackers

5.    Amore E Sapore de Famiglia – Valentino’s Wife

6.    Footnote Maven

7.    We Tree Blogspot – Amy Coffin

It was such fun to be awarded, and to be given the opportunity to leave an award for others!  But it was difficult to just pick seven, there are so many wonderful blogs to choose from!

  • “A League of Their Own” is one of my favorite movies (own it) – and you ar right,the last scene is a tough one. Last month I was in Cooperstown and visited Doubleday Field where the game was filmed as well as the new women’s exhibit at the National Baseball Hall of Fame. It was nice to see that the movie was pretty accurate historically.

    • Thank you, Thomas! The first 10 times or so I watched “A League of Their Own” I didn’t own it, but do now! It is a classic, I think. Envy you your visit to Cooperstown and the new women’s exhibit. Tom Hanks and Geena Davis were awesome in the movie, actually everyone did a great job. It was movie magic! Thank you for the Kreativ Blogging Award. I’m grateful!

  • Thank you for the blogging award. I appreciate it very much.

    • You are welcome, Amy! I’ve been following you on Twitter and reading your Tweets a long time and so appreciate reading both your Tweets on Twitter and your blog! I hope you have fun picking seven people, and writing up your seven things.

  • My sincere thanks for the award, Sherry! I hope to post something (tonight?) as a thank-you. AND – as I read your “seven things,” I felt as though I had found my doppelganger. The dark thing? Well, what you really have to be scared of is a disembodied hand crawling up and trying to choke you (Beast with Five Fingers). Big murder mystery fan here, too. And, for genealogy, I also love to play detective. Garage sales, thrift shops – they’re what make shopping worthwhile. Also want to learn how to Photoshop. Also a sucker for cats (one of ours is BooBoo). Will have to rent “A League of our Own.”

    • It sounds like we have much in common!! And I’ll be watching out for that disembodied hand crawling up and trying to choke me! Hilarious! I also love NCIS, but forgot to mention that here! Don’t forget the hanky when you rent “A League of Our Own.” It’s a two hanky one at the end! Not that it ends badly, mind you. No car wrecks or murders, but you’ll know what we mean when you watch it! I’m almost surprised I confessed to being ‘goosey’ about the dark, but I don’t think there is ANYTHING else that ‘nobody knows’….
