Stylish Blogger Award

I received my second award. Don't know if my blog is stylish, but it functions for me. Anyway, the rules for receiving this award are as follows:

1. Thank and link back to the person who gave you the award.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Pass the award on.

So, thank you, Piedmont Writer, for this award. To check out her blog, click HERE.

I've shared information about myself with the other award I won, so I may end up repeating myself. If I am – oh well…

1. I am a direct descendant of Susannah Martin (she was one of the first women accused of being a witch during the Salem Witch Trials – and she was hung). Genealogy can uncover some interesting family members!

2. My favorite radio stations are KYSR-98.7 FM out of Orange County/Los Angeles (I listen to them on-line while at work) and AltNation (channel 43?) on Sirius/XM radio (which I get in my car). I can't find any local stations that play the music I want to hear (which started out with Muse and has grown from there).

3. My favorite color of car is YELLOW. Do I own one? No. My Xterra didn't come in that color anymore. Made me sad. Not too sad, since I did purchase one (only it's dark grey). Maybe one day I'll get it re-painted.

4. I bought my Xterra because it became a feature in my first book (a yellow one, of course). Doing all that research made me want one of my own! And now I have one.

5. I hate shopping. Doesn't matter what kind. Shoes, Clothes, Groceries. Maybe it's going to the store I hate. I don't seem to have much problem buying books from Barnes and Noble on line, though!!

6. Two years ago you wouldn't have found me on Facebook or this blog. Heck, I didn't even text two years ago! See what writing has done to me?

7. I bite my nails. Yes! I said it. But I'm better now than I used to. Maybe because I'm not as scared as I was when I was younger. Don't know. My nails are still short, though.

I pass this award on to the following blogs:

I didn't know Xterra didn't come in yellow any more. It was a smashing color on that SUV. I loved it.

Yes, it was a sad day, indeed, when I found out the 2008 model was the last year they came in yellow. And if I hadn't had gotten such a great deal on my 2010 Xterra, I might have gone looking for a used one.

Thanks for visiting, Maria!

Ooo thank you for the award :) And the kind thoughts. I am actually feeling better though you wouldn't believe it with the mountains of tissues I'm surrounded by..ewwww.. oh well! I always wanted a yellow car too - as well as a green jeep wrangler with a tan soft top ..*sigh* one day :)

Hey, thanks Stacy. I've put your award on my blog (following all the rules, of course).

Nicest thing that's happened to me all day.
