One Lovely Blogger Award

I was so happy that The Hermit Librarian tagged me for this award!  I am still a newby to blogging (less than a year!), so I am always thankful when anyone reads my blog, much less points it out to others! 

Here are the rules:

1.  You must thank the person who nominated you and include a link to their blog.
2.  You must list the rules and display the award.
3.  You must add 7 facts about yourself.
4.  You must nominate 5 other bloggers and comment on one of their posts to let them know they have been nominated.

Here are 7 facts about me:

1. I used to be a professional singer when I was in high school.
2.  I am such an obsessed fan of Buffy The Vampire Slayer that I actually went to a Buffy convention and got autographs of most of the actors!
3.  I lived in Japan for 3 years.
4.  I am a total night owl, but now I have to go to bed early to wake up at (what I call) Stupid o'clock in the morning.
5.   I love my job working with kids.
6.  Since starting this blog, I have gained confidence and feel better about myself.
7.  I have been Cancer-free for four years.

  1. I'm a huge Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan too :)

    Majanka @ I Heart Reading

    1. I'm trying to get my teen daughter to watch it. She has seen it, but she is not as fanatical as me!

  2. Oh wow, these are some mind blowing facts! I'm totally with you on #2. I once skipped my dessert in a 4 starred-restaurant to make it home in time to watch the latest episode of Buffy. I'm also not ashamed to say I've had the soundtrack of the 'Once More, with Feeling' episode on my i-Pod for the past decade or so...

    As for #7...wow Ardis. I can't even imagine what you must've been through...So to add a positive note to it, even though I know it all depends on the type of cancer, I sincerely hope you can celebrate your '5 year cancer-free milestone'- anniversary next year. With lots of yummie cake of course! And keep on rocking this blog!

    1. Yes, I have belted out the songs on that soundtrack many times! Thank you for the Cancer-free vibes. It was hell, but I got through it.

  3. I loved Buffy when it aired. I need to get back into watching it because I think I missed a bit towards the end of the series.

    1. I have all the Buffy DVD's. My coolest autographs from the Buffy convention were from Anthony Stewart Head and the Nerd Trifecta.

  4. I am a huge Buffy fan as well. Thanks for nominating my blog, Lisa Loves Literature. I will try to get to this, but don't know if I will have time in the near future.

    1. Thank you, Lisa. It took me a while before I could get to it, myself. I just wanted people to see your blog. Have a fun week.

  5. Thank you so much for the nomination, you are too kind! I'm glad to hear you've been cancer-free for four years and hope that number continues to grow. Stupid o'clock in the morning...I'm going to be laughing about that for a while.

    1. Thank you, Alicia! I HATE getting up early, yet I need to be out the door so early to get to work on time. You have a great blog. Have a fun week.
