Cherry on Top

Look what lil' ol' me received from the fabulous and wonderful Wiley!!!! An award!!! We all know I love awards, but this one is special for several reasons! First, because the wonderful Wiley gave it to me. And because it's pink! And because it's all about cupcakes, which have to be the world's best dessert! So thank you my dearest Wiley for bestowing such an honor upon moi!

As always with these awards, I have some things to do to show my appreciation! The rules are simple: talk about three things about myself I love, and then pass the award on to bloggers I love. I can so do this!

1. I like my sense of humor. Several years ago, when I first started teaching, I learned I was funny. I didn't care that I made a fool out of myself on occasions because if it got a laugh, I thought it was awesome. Around that same time I had a Sam who always told me to "never be afraid to go fro the funny." I've followed that advice ever since then. And since then, I've sort of played to that strength. Sometimes I go for the funny and find it wasn't that funny. Sometimes the "funny" sounds better in my head that when it actually comes out my mouth. But I think I have a small talent for making people laugh.

2. I like my brain. I'm not a dumb person and I like I can think. I like that I have a big vocabulary. I like to reason and think and sort. I like words and learning new things. I think knowledge is power and I try to not weld it as a weapon, but I like just having, and SHARING, knowledge. Sometimes I feel like a font of worthless knowledge but it's still my knowledge.

3. The third thing I like about myself is my creativity. Now, my creative synapses are not always firing but when they do, I like what I can generate. I'm not a very crafty person so my creative side is usually seen through something I've planned like an event or an activity or a trip. Or through my writing. Or the way I dress.

Now, I'd like to say this award goes to:

Anyway - ENJOY!

Congratulations Maggie! What a well deserved award and sooo cute too. Looks like it was made for your page!

And THANK YOU my dear for not only passing it on to me but for all the lovely comments you always leave me. They mean so much and always make me smile!

...and I'd love to do the smokey Liz Taylor eyes on you though it's been a while since I've done them and my eyesight ain't what it used to be so you might get Johnny Depp's Mad Hatter instead, lol :)
