One Lovely Blog Award

I was happy to be nominated for the One Lovely Blog Award by NovElla and Banannabelle.  Thank you!

One Lovely Blog Award

Here are the guidelines for the One Lovely Blog Award:

  1. Each nominee must thank the person who nominated them and link that blog in their post.
  2. Each nominee must include the rules and add the blog award badge as an image.
  3. Also add 7 facts about themselves.
  4. Nominate up to 15 people to do the award.

Seven Facts about Me

  1. I am currently 9 months pregnant, but I’m scheduling this post ahead of time, so who knows if I will still be at this point in time!
  2. My essential Thanksgiving food is Pillsbury Crescent Rolls.  Also good: mashed potatoes, and roasted sweet potatoes.  I guess turkey, too.

    But I make my husband pop open the can.
  3. I just bought the first Christmas presents for family members, which is quite early for me to be shopping.  I figured I’d better get a head start, as it might not be the first thing on my mind with a newborn.
  4. My favorite dinosaur is the stegosaurus.  Luckily, they make tons of baby stuff right now with dinosaurs on it.  I have bought most of it.

  5. The mobile game I play the most is Disney Magic Kingdoms.  I’ve always loved theme park-building games, and I get so excited when I get to put in all my favorite rides and welcome favorite Disney characters.  However, I have a general rule that I don’t spend money on mobile games, so I do a lot of grinding to try to get the good stuff, and some I just have to skip.
  6. I love reading in so many genres; the last three books I read were a nonfiction sociological memoir, a YA fantasy duology, and a Christmas-themed Regency romance.  Next will be either a fairy tale retelling, or a compilation of Star Wars short stories.  I’ve been stocking up books on my Kindle in case of downtime at the hospital.
  7. Last year I won NaNoWriMo by writing 50,000 words in a month.  I signed up again this year, and have written about 250 so far.  >_<  But I knew I wouldn’t win this year (other priorities), and hey, it’s 250 words I didn’t have at the beginning of the month!Image result for nano 2017 banner

I don’t really have the time to nominate anyone at the moment, but if you are reading this and would like to participate, please go ahead!  I’d love to hear more about you on your blog.

Anyone else doing NaNoWriMo?  What’s your favorite dinosaur?  Have you bought all your Christmas presents yet?

    Hmm I don’t think I’ve heard of NaNoWriMo before. I’ll need to check that out. As for my fave dinosaur, it’s gotta be Spinosaurus by far. 🙂

      Definitely check out NaNoWriMo, it’s this crazy idea where you write a 50,000 word novel in one month. I have only managed to do it once!
      I will have to check out the Spinosaurus 🙂

    I hope everything’s going great with you and your little Jedi youngling!

    I really like the name of the Supersaurus because it sounds like it could have its own comic strip 🙂 .

    I always liked the brontosaurus and the triceratops. Can’t say why, but I wouldn’t be surprised if certain characters from The Land Before Time were the main reasons why when I was little. 🙂

    And Christmas shopping… I confess I started before Halloween. *blushes* But I have a lot of birthdays to buy for from mid November through early January. So I always get a head start, especially since leaving things to the last minute always stressed me out.

    Hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving and all is well with you, the husband, and Little Jedi!

      I still have some plastic cups with TLBT characters! I am using Spike today.
      I am super impressed with your Christmas/birthday shopping. We have a bunch of birthdays around this time, too, yet that has never inspired me to be more proactive haha.
      Hope you also had a good Thanksgiving. We are all tired but doing well.

    Your NaNo count beats my 0 at least, haha. I signed up for an account… that counts for something, right? Maybe next November.

    My favourite dinosaur is the T-Rex, and all my Christmas shopping is done. No crowded malls required thanks to Amazon 😀

      Indeed, there’s always next year! And I applaud your good intentions in at least making an account.
      Well done you on the shopping. The only stuff I’ve done was also through Amazon!
