Introducing Miette *and* A Blog Award!

This weekend I got a fabulous new netbook, I'm so in love!  I named her Miette, because that's way I call my muse and since I got her solely for writing purposes I figured it was appropriate.  Miette means "sweet little thing" and you'd totally get it if you saw the size of my netbook--it's tiny and absolutely adorable!  I'm going to have to get a skin from Skin It because they only had black at the store.  Maybe something with a vintage/boho look like the tote I bought for it.  But even the black is shiny and pretty! 

I am so excited, I got my first ever blog award!  Kiernan over at Fire In Mine Ears nominated me for the versatile blogger award!

The award requires that I 1) Tell you 7 unknown things about myself and 2) nominate others to receive this award. 

#1) I have two amazing kids that inspire me every day.  My little girl is 3.5 years old, my little man is 10.5 months.  They grow so fast!

#2) I love to bake.  Love it.  Especially cookies.  But I don't like to eat baked goods.  My daughter and I bake cookies once a week but I hardly ever eat one!

#3) I'm a health nut.  I almost minored in nutrition but changed my minor to psychology because I thought it would be more useful for my writing.  I exercise religiously because its fun.  Kickboxing and dancing are my favorite cardio work outs but I love yoga and pilates also.

#4) I was super close to my great grandma and she was the one who first inspired me to write.  When I was a little girl she told me beautiful stories about when she was a little girl growing up in the early 1900s.  She taught me to think creatively and to appreciate the beauty of nature.

#5) I have a slight *ahem* major obsession with Joss Whedon movies and shows (especially Firefly).  I also love almost any old sci-fi movie no matter how poorly constructed.  I'm a geek don't tell anyone!

#6) I wish I was born in a different era.  A time when I could wear corsets and hoop skirts and be courted by dashing gentlemen.  Yes, I'm a bit of a Gone With the Wind nut :) 

#7)  I have a thing against odd numbers.  Seriously.  And seven is my least favorite number in the world.

So you get a bonus about me fact:  I was born with three ears.  Yes really.  No I'm not an alien.

Now I'll nominate some of my favorite blogs:
Ashley Nixon
The Word is My Oyster
All About Them Words
Iggi & Gabi
Flights of Fantasy
Here be Magic
Rach Writes
Temperance Black
Writer's Ally

I'm sure I forgot some, but these blogs are great!

  2. Aww, thanks K.V..! Congrats on your blog award and your new computer! That's awesome that it's so small. I love my Macbook Pro but it's kind of heavy when I tote it around.

    It would be fun to live in a corseted era--for a day. After that, my ribs would hurt too much!
