Blog Award Nominations

In the past couple of weeks, Mrs Fringe has received 3! blog award nominations.  Thank you!  These are lovely acknowledgements–they like me, they really like me! I will try to get all three acknowledgements and nomination forwards (yes, I just made up the term, but I’m not sure what to call this) completed over this week.

So, I was nominated for One Lovely Blog Award by SnapInTime, who writes The Voice From The Backseat. If you haven’t already done so, please check out her blog. It is a truly lovely chronicle of a special mom juggling three beautiful, medically complex children, focused on her daughter. Her sweetie has Cystic Fibrosis along with other challenges, and this is one mom’s perspective on trying to navigate.  Thank you, Snap In!

The rules for this nomination…I think it’s to list 7 random facts about myself and then nominate 7 more blogs that I read and recommend.

*I’m terrible at math. Blame this if I don’t hit the correct numbers of nominations, questions, or facts.

*I hate syrup on pancakes, waffles, etc, because I don’t like my hands to be sticky.

*I never truly understood the word covet until I became a reefer, and starting paying attention to other reefers’ tanks.

*I would have offered anything in exchange for a second bathroom this morning.

*In response to the age old question: Do you have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep? I have trouble staying asleep.

*I love to walk, but if you call it a hike, I ain’t moving.

*I’m wondering if struggling to come up with 7 random facts about myself means I’ll run out of things to blog about.

Blogs I love to follow, and believe my readers will, too. And the nominees are:

Arty Old Bird Original Art and Thoughts from a woman I find fascinating and interesting.  Also, she replies to comments, which I love.

The Other Side of 55 Margo is (drumroll, please) on the other side of 55. A Canadian writer (my .02, all the best female writers are Canadian–must be something in the water). Funny, observant, well worth the read.

Talk to Diana I’m quite certain she’s already received this nomination, but it’s well deserved. A positive, hopeful blog written by a truly lovely woman, she’s all about connections and encouragement.

Fly on the Wall Daily observations, life and love, I’m always smiling as I read.

The Eff Stop Beautiful photography from another beautiful spirit.

OK, that’s it for me.  I think my limit for nominations will be five, though I promise to post what the rules dictate for each nomination.  That’s right, I am a rebel.

    Thank you so much for the mention.. nomination..?? what does it mean? I am not up on the whole award thing.


  2. Yes, of course they like you, they really like you! 😛 Thank you so much for your kind words. 🙂 We’ve known each other for many years but I’ve gotten to know a bit of a different side of you through your writing here and I’ve enjoyed it a lot. I look forward to seeing a lot more of your writing.


    1. You’re very welcome, and wow! Your comment touched two major chords in me. 1) It tells me I’m on the right track with this blog. This is what I hope to communicate here, me–not just the mom side, the writer side, etc, but life as a whole. If people can relate and or smile along the way with me–perfect. ❤
      2) We have known each other a long time, and friendship is a beautiful thing.
