Blog Awards and 7 Fun Facts!

Happy Friday everyone! Please remember to visit me over at the Scribes today where Susan Muller discusses her new book – Secrets on Forest Bend!

This past week I was graced with two blog awards: “The Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award” and the “Inspiring Blogger Award”.

Thank you so much: Marilyn Wigglesworth (Sweet) and Carrie Daws (Inspiring).

Both awards only ask that I share seven interesting or random facts about me and that I pass this award to other deserving bloggers.

So here are my seven things, in no particular order:

1. I gave birth to my youngest son on the bathroom floor. And before you ask, I went into labor and gave birth in the space of about twenty minutes.  The kid couldn’t wait!

2. I went to college in Washington DC. While there, I earned bachelor’s degrees in Anthropology and Psychology. I figured, I should earn two BAs for the price of one.

3. While in DC, I was also an intern for two Smithsonian Museums (on separate occasions): The National Museum of American History and at The National Zoo. And yes, both places are as cool at they sound!

4. I’m a life long sci-fi/fantasy geek. I love Star Trek and Star Wars. Since I’ve attended two Trek conventions, if pressed to choose, I’d say I love Star Trek more.

5. I met my husband while working at a movie theater. I worked concessions and he was head projectionist. Yup, that was a cool job too.

6. I’m a proud member of Phi Mu Fraternity, Gamma Delta chapter. I even served as chapter president my senior year in college.

7. I taught myself to knit and crochet, during the dark time, while I avoided being a writer. I love to make socks, gloves, scarves and amigarumi. In between books, I fall back to my yarn stash for a bit.

In the spirit of the awards, I must bestow one of these prestigious honors on other worthy bloggers (10 for the Irresistibly Sweet Awards and 14 for the Inspiring Blogger Award).

To the recipients, please take a moment, thank the person who gave you the award, list seven fun/interesting things and pass this on to other deserving blogs.

  1. OMG, Casey! You are a wonder woman, especially after sharing that birth story. 🙂

    And you taught me a new word: amigarumi. Had to look it up! 🙂

    Congrats on all your awards.

    1. Thanks Rose. Sorry about the amigarumi – I forget that not everyone crochets!! The birth story is kind of funny. Especially since my second son is so laid back. I don’t what his hurry was!

  2. Very cool, Casey. You keep surprising me, girlfriend! Great choices for passing the love along. i especially like the Gail Ingis nomination. She’s a super nice lady, and I don’t throw the word “lady” around too often. A woman of substance to be sure!

  3. Whoa… you gave birth on your bathroom floor. That’s a story to tell the grandkids. LOL. Thanks for sending me the award!

  4. Wow, you are my hero! Bathroom floor, huh? I would have been freaking out. And I can totally picture you as the fraternity chapter president. You probably did a more thorough job than anyone they ever had. 😉

    Great list of nominees, too. Congrats everyone!

    1. Yes, bathroom floor! I didn’t have time to freak out. It all happened so fast. The benefit was that I barely stayed in the hospital. I was raring to go home after that!

  5. Thanks for the nomination! I’ll get to this over the weekend. Your career is so interesting! This is why I know you’re a great writer – life experience!
    I got you beat. I made it to the hospital with my second kid, but she was born in three minutes – at least not on the bathroom floor! In the car! Too funny!

    1. OMG – you too!! Now I know we are kindred spirits. I am so grateful I wasn’t in the car. We will have to compare notes one of these days. And it was your second child! I agree – too funny! You’re welcome for the award – you are also at the top of my sweetie list!

  6. I never realized how interesting you were! I feel like we all should do this.

  7. Thanks Casey for the inspiring award! I truly appreciate and am honored to receive it!

    I love your 7 fun facts…you’re an incredible woman and I’m honored to know you!

  8. Hi Casey,

    Thank you so much for the award. I believe it is the first I’ve received for that blog! I feel incredibly undeserving but thank you very much!

    Will try to pass it on soon and I haven’t forgotten about your prize. I owe you, sista! 😀


  9. Thanks for the sweet award Casey!!! 🙂

    And you gave birth on the bathroom floor in 20 minutes??? *boggle* That baby really did want out… Right away!!! LOL

    Fun blog!

    Lisa 🙂

    1. You are so welcome! I enjoy your blog. It brings a huge smile to my face! I love your kitties! And mine are 13 and they still manage to get into trouble.
