Survey says...

I was given an award today from The Adorkable Ditz' Missteps and am super happy about it! I mean, look at it, it oozes sunshine and happy thoughts! 

Receiving this award means I have to answer a few questions that were posed to me and then pass the award along to other unsuspecting bloggers.  So, cool! Lets get started.

10 Survey Questions:
1. If you blog anonymously, are you happy doing this? If you aren't anonymous, do you wish you started out anonymously so that you could be anonymous now?  No I would not like to be anonymous at all. 
2.  Describe an incident that describes your inner stubborn side?  There are so many to choose from! lol  I guess it was when I was a junior in high school and our counselor told me I was not "good enough" to participate in an English Writing program.  Only a few select girls would be eligible.  I quickly dismissed the counselor's negative words and wrote my heart out to the committee that would be choosing the lucky participants.  I not only got accepted into the program, but I won the contest! Don't tell me I can't do something or am not good enough!
3.  What do you see when you really look at yourself in the mirror? Ugh! This is a tough question for me because I am still working on this issue.  When I look in the mirror I see failure and sadness and ugly.  I hardly look in a mirror anymore.  But as I said, I am actively working on this and trying to overcome my issues.
4.  What is your favorite summer cold drink?  Vodka and cranberry juice.  Ok, ok, that's for adult time, for non-adult time, it's lemonade, please.
5.  When you take time for yourself, what do you do?  Hmm, I read, or write or take in a movie, go for a walk, window shop, people watch, go for long drives.  Really, it just depends what kind of mood I'm in.  I'm pretty spontaneous and kind of just go with the wind.
6.  Is there something that you still want to accomplish in your life?  Tons of things!  Become a better person for one.  Become published, sell my novel, travel, fall in love, end world hunger, rule the world... :)
7.  When you attended school, were you the class clown, the class overachiever, the shy person or always ditching? Definitely not shy, but not the class clown, somewhere in between, I suppose. 
8.  If you close your eyes and want to visualize a very  poignant moment in your life, what would you see?  The day my oldest niece Sydney,  was born, that was a very special moment in my life.
9.  Is it easier to share your true self on your blog or are you more comfortable writing posts about other people and events? It is very easy to share my true self to my blog more than it is for me to share my true self with those that know me.
10.  If you had a chance to sit down and read a book or talk on the phone, which would you do and why?
Ha ha, that's easy.  I would talk on the phone! I am a chatterbox! Sometimes, my friends avoid my calls.  Hmm, I can't imagine why!  -eh! I'm just kidding. Sort of.
I'm supposed to pass the award on to others now.  So without further adieu, the winners are:
Quit Yer Blatherin'
 The Frisky Virgin

These three ladies' blogs are very cleverly written and at times, hysterically funny, profoundly insightful and always, always motivating.  If you haven't already, please take a moment to check them out! You never know, you might like it!
It's Saturday people! Hope you're out enjoying it!

Belle said...

Congrats on your award, Yvonne. Your list was interesting, and I too think it was great you won the writing contest at school! A book I just read said to look at yourself in the mirror and say positive things about your self. I am doing that now, although it gives me a giggle.

Congrats... I can't think of a lovelier person to deserve such an award!

Shady Del Knight said...

Way to go, Yvonne! You pour a lot of yourself into this blog and you deserve the recognition. It's funny, I know you well enough that I was able to answer most of the questions posed to you before I read your answers. That's an indication of how well you share your true self with us.

Yvonne said...

LD - You're crazy!!! lol I hate the Macarena, but we can find another silly dance to do! Life is AWESOME!!! :)

AG- Aww, thanks so much for that! I appreciate it!

Slim Shady - Every time I see your name I think of that song, "I'm Slim shady..." -I don't know all of the words though! lol Thanks! I am glad you read it. I look forward to your words of wisdom!
