A Shining Boom Boom Thank You!

May 27, 2013 at 2:09 am 22 comments

Good evening everyone!  It is a quiet Sunday here in the NW ‘Burbs of Illinois and I am sitting in my office with the Pee.  My other ‘P’ is upstairs cooking an incredible spinach lasagna and my ‘J’ is all over the place doing all sorts of stuff – all the stuff but the stuff I want him to do!  Amazing how that is, isn’t it?

Well, while the lasagna bakes, Pee stares at me and Jordan fools around, I wanted to send out some Boom Booms and Shining Stars – so, buckle your seat belts and away we go…………………………..

The Blogging Fireworks Award


The Scoop on the Boom Boom:

The Blogging Fireworks Award honors the blogs that shock us, inspire us, touch us, or make us laugh.

The Rules of the Boom Boom:

1.  Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to their blog.

2.  Display the Fireworks on your blog.

3.  Share five meaningful things about yourself.

4.  Nominate five bloggers to share the fireworks!

This very flashy and exciting award was given to me by Jen at Blog It or Lose It!  She is such an incredible writer.  I love her ability to pick topics and create wonderful works of art with her words.  The first time I experienced Jen’s poetry was during her Artists A-Z series, and I have been hooked ever since! If you have not had a chance to bask in Jen’s eloquent offerings, please head on over to – http://jrosenberry1.wordpress.com/

For the five meaningful things about myself:

  1. I am very sensitive – emotional to the max – I cry at a drop of a hat!
  2. I am 5′-3″ and I wear a buzz cut – #4 or #3 blade.
  3. I love to go dancing but have yet to find anyone in the world who will take me dancing or even want to dance with me.
  4. I love to cook – especially with Peyton.
  5. I am going to miss Jordan terribly when he goes away to college.

For the five nominees who Boom Boom my world!

    Thank you for your brilliant thoughtfulness! You are so cute (your responses to the questions also shine *bright* like the stars at night), too!

    If not for you, I might have missed out on any number of other great blogs on WP! The fact that you have been nominated by so many of them has definitely caused a boost in my online reading… it’s almost hard to keep up with you, and I certainly fall behind on occasion!

    I’m so honored that you think of my writing with such high regard, and I am so happy that you have introduced me to so many other brilliant writers (who I can now share this award with)!
