Here are the rules:

  • Thank the person who gave you the award and provide a link.
  • Write a post about it

  • Pass it on to 10 bloggers who you think really deserve it and let them know
  • Answer 10 Questions:
  1. Favourite colour: Green
  2. Favourite animal: Dog
  3. Favourite number: 8 (Because it's the same upside-down or right-side up)
  4. Favorite non-alcoholic drink: Toss up between coffee and green tea with orange, passion fruit, and jasmine.
  5. Facebook or Twitter: Twitter

  7. Getting or giving presents: Giving and I'm usually so excited I can't wait.
  8. Favourite pattern: Anything that's complex

  3. Warm milk with a slash of vanilla ... mmmm, sounds good.

    Btw, regarding your post on my blog, I am also upset that the Dark Shadows movie is going to be a spoof -- and not a very good one either, if the trailer is any indication! :(

    1. LOL, that answer wasn't mine. I'm not sure but I think I never changed it when I copied the questions. My real answer is up there now. I'm not a milk person at all.

      Oh, Dark Shadows. So sad. :(

    2. LOL! Yeah, that answer was mine. :) Though I'm a huge coffee fan, too. Yum!!

    3. I'm not sure how I skipped that question totally. It doesn't help that when I cut and pasted from your blog I made the text white on white. The question sort of disappeared on me.

  4. Thanks Kelly! I like roses too-my fave are the yellow ones.

  6. Thanks Kelly, That was so sweet.

    BTW, Kelly + green, haha! I love green, too - the GOOD colors, not a fan of olive or loden.

    Have a productive and prolific weekend!

      Yes, I like Kelly green. :) I like dark greens and the ones with a hint of blue in them.

  9. Congrats, Kelly! 8 is also my favorite. It was my first soccer jersey number. :)

    1. When my daughter starts full-day kindergarten in September, Monday won't be favorite day of the week anymore. I'm going to miss her. :(

  11. Congratulations on your award, you're very deserving of it!

    I'm with you, Monday is my favorite day as well. I seem to get the most done that day, then motivation fizzles as the week goes on lol.

    1. Exactly! Mondays are very productive days for me too.

    1. LOL. I know, right? I got another award too and it was so tough trying to find things about myself that you guys don't already know. :P

  13. Wow, what a great award. Thank you and you certainly deserve it. I love green too and I've answered questions like this and my answers were very similar to yours. I will be proudly displaying the award though on my blog. Thank you Kelly!

  14. Congrats on your award and thanks for passing it on to me!

  15. Congrats on the award! It was fun to find out some more information about you. I like Mondays, too (because I don't have to go in to work on that day). Like you, I love to give gifts. Usually I give them early because I hate keeping the gifts secret. :)

    1. We sing that song all the time in my house. :) My daughter loves it.

  17. Thanks so much. This award is something I will enjoy. Sorry for the delay - in NY with my daughter this week., hit publish on my piece this morning and then it's been walk, walk, walk. My dogs are barking. Time for a glass of wine. I don't mind Mondays either.. they signal fresh starts.

    1. Oh, that's right. I forgot you were in NY. Enjoy the trip and your time with your daughter. :) (And get those feet up.)

  18. Kelly, thank you for this lovely award. I so appreciate it.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Kelly, thanks for this pretty award! I enjoy Mondays more than most people I know, too, and 8 is also one of my favourite numbers (the other is 2). Your non-alcoholic tea drink sounds fabulous.

    I feel really bad because previously I'd told my blog readers that I will focus on featuring posts that have got to do with kidlit/books/reading on our blog. I hope you know how honored & deeply appreciative I am of this award though ... Thanks for thinking of us! :) (And I can't wait to read the other recipients' answers.)

    Love,
    Claudine

    1. I understand that, Claudine. A lot of blogs are becoming award-free zones. ;) Sorry, I forgot about your post on it. I read so many blogs, I can't keep them all straight sometimes.

    2. Oh, please don't apologize, Kelly. I'm very grateful you thought of us. :)

  20. Hi Kelly,
    Congrats on your award. I also prefer Twitter to FB-I get a bit addicted to it sometimes-there are so many interesting writers on there with so much to say.

    1. Yeah, I limit my time on there. It's very addicting.

  21. Hey Kelly! Thanks for the award! Sorry it took me so long to get over here to say thank you. I've been MIA this past week. And I love what you say about the number 8. :D Very cool!

  22. I'd rather tweet than go on Facebook.

    Congrats on the beautiful, sunny award.

    1. Thanks, Medeia! I'm with you on Twitter. It's easier to pop in and out. Facebook can be time consuming.
