The Lovely Blog Award

Thank you Megan for naming my little space in blogville as a "Lovely Blog"!  

Rules of this award is to tell 7 things about myself, and give to 15 of my favorite blogs.  Since I'm pretty sure most of you have received this award, and I enjoy every single of the blogs I follow I award to all of you.  Grab it if you want to play along!

So 7 things about me:

1.  I LOVE my job!  My title is Manager of Customer Support.  I manage a team for 4 support specialists  for a software company.  The five of us provide total support for approximately 10,000 customers.  Total = no escalation.

2.  My favorite holiday is Halloween.  I love trick-or-treating with my kids and do not look forward to the day when my youngest, now 13, does not want to go.  I dress up in costume and everything!

3. When I was a kid I was in 4-H.  Horses and Rabbits.  One of my projects was a sewing project.  I made my own stable blanket for my Arab.  I still have that same blanket - do not remember how to use the sewing machine.

4.  I drive a sports car - don't own a truck, but have a horse trailer!

5.  I read just about everything and anything but my favorite is fiction.  I think my all time favorite author is Dean Koontz.  I've read every Harry Potter book, and to have conversation material I read all the Twilight books with my daughter.

6.  I LOVE Hockey! Being born and raised in Michigan, I have to be a Red Wings fan.  However, I don't really have a "favorite" team.  I do have favorite players.

7. When I started this blog, I didn't really think I'd have the commitment, or even really like writing.  I've found it to be quite the opposite.  I love blogging and I appreciate my audience.  I think even if no one ever commented I'd still write.  It's good therapy.


  1. Congrats on the award, its fun to find out more about you

  2. Congrats on your award, lovely lady!

    Dean Koontz has always been one of my favorite writers, too. :)


  3. Congrats on the award! My favorite holiday is also Halloween, I am trying to get into hockey (go Blackhawks!) but no one wants to go to a game!

  4. ...congrats on your award! In addition to having a lovely blog, you're a lovely person! I love Halloween too! I guess that's the Irish in me--or is it the witch? :-)

  5. Congrats! You are a Lovely Blogger!
    I am in total agreement with #7! I'm surprised how much I enjoy the act of writing posts for the blog, regardless of who might read them.

  6. I gave you the award too. You have a great blog.

  7. Great getting to know you better. Things are just not the same without kids, especially hockey! Thank god for horses!!

  8. I keep trying out other authors, but somehow keep going back to Dean Koontz. He knows how to maintain the reader's attention and keep us thinking about his books even long after we've put his books down. He's my inspiration when I work on my suspense novels.

  9. Congrats to you!
    I'm so happy to read all your fun life details!!! You made me laugh with the tailer/sports car combo.

    Well, writing and documenting is addicting. You have a flare for it and your blog shows that.

  10. Congratulations on your award! Nice to get to know you better.


Happy Trails!
