A couple of awards!

Hey all, the wonderful craziness of WIFYR is behind me. I learned a ton and got to mingle with some awesome writers. So now, I'm back to my regular posting schedule. Aren't you so lucky?

Anywho, while I was in Hawaii, Jonene from The Wonderful Obsessions awarded me with a Meme. Check out her blog and tell her thanks for me!

AND yesterday Brenda at The Startled Spyglass gave me the Irresistibly Sweet Blogger Award.

All I can say is yum. Oh, and thank you, Brenda. Make sure you check out her blog. It's delicious!

Anywho, with these awards I'm supposed to answer some questions. I'll start with the Meme and then move on the the sugar!

Meme questions:

If you could go back in time and relive one moment, what would it be?

Wow, let's see, so many to choose from. I think I'd go back and relive the first time my hubby kissed me. He says I kissed him, and it was soooo the other way around. If I could go back, I could get proof...um I mean, I'd get to have that first kiss all over again. Okay, I'd also be able to prove how right I've always been. And no, I'm not above using time travel to win a friendly argument. He he. And besides, it was a great kiss, in the rain. He leaned in and ahhhhh. Yup that's worth a second time.

If you could go back in time and change one thing, what would it be?

Hmmmm, I don't know if I'd change anything because I've read way too many sci-fi books where changing things set up a horrible paradox and messed up the whole space-time continuum. But If I had to choose, I'd not eat that doughnut from last week. And yes, that is so a good use of time travel. Sheesh.

What movie/TV character do you most resemble in personality?


If you could push one person off a cliff and get away with it, who would it be?

Depends on the day. Wink, wink.

Name one habit you want to change in yourself.

Ummmmm, I'd be more spontaneous because then I'd say wahoo more often.

Describe yourself in one word.

Crazy. Well, you did ask.

Describe the person who named you in this Meme in one word.

Shazam! Because that's even better than awesome or amazing or fantastic or wonderful or... well it's pretty darn cool.

Why do you blog? Answer in one sentence.

Because I get to meet coolio people like you guys.

Now, on to the strawberries, in which I must torture you with seven random things about myself:

1: I like to sing. My poor, poor neighbors.

2: I didn't shower yesterday. See, random. Aren't you impressed that I read the instructions? (I am.)

3: I'm going to shower today. Yup, I'm that good. I'm even going to use soap.

4: I love quaking aspen trees. The leaves always look like they're laughing, and I like me a tree with a sense of humor.

5: I pay my daughter to do the dishes. Yup, mother of the year. Yay me. Of course it helps that she owes me 400 bucks. I'm not going to have to do dishes for the whole summer. Ahhhh, so sweet.

6: I help her with the dishes sometimes because I have guilt. Stupid guilt. Grrr.

7: I'm always surprised anyone reads this blog. You are still reading right? Hello? Hello? Is anyone out there? Hello? Darn it, all alone again...sigh.

Phew! That was hard...and long.

Now the last part where I bestow these fabulous awards to other worthy bloggers.

Ali Cross at Alicross.com
Julie Daines at After The Toilets
Amy at Lap and Storytime
Rebecca Carlson
and Donea at The Queen of Procrastination

Yay! Check them all out! They're fabulous peeps.

Congrats on your award :)
I'm glad that you shower. I'm also glad you're not afraid to admit that sometimes you don't.
And paying your kids to wash dishes can be SO worth it!
Glad to be a new follower :)

LeishaMaw said...

Shelly, so glad to have you! And paying for dishes is way worth it. :)

Anonymous said...

Leisha, just have to say that I love you, crazy and all. Thanks for being my blogging/writing friend!

And I want to hear all about WIFYR!

Jonene Ficklin said...

Ha ha, love your answers! You should get Meme'd and irresistible strawberry awarded more often at the same time!

LeishaMaw said...

Nikki, I love being loved! And right back at you! Thanks for being my blogging/writing friend. :) A WIFYR post is coming up.

Jonene,I'm not sure the world can handle this more often, but thanks. You rock. :)

Holly said...

You crack me up. I'm glad I found you again online. We need to get together sometime. I'm in the Valley, so you know where to find me. :-)

LeishaMaw said...

Holly, hey! I'm glad you stopped by. We should definitely get together sometime. :)

ali said...

Aw, thanks!!!

And I loved your "wahoo" comment. :) We ALL need to say wahoo more often!

Brenda Sills said...

I LOVE your posts! You always make me laugh! You just have a natural way of making things funny and I love how you catch me off guard with the things you say!

Quakies are awesome! Growing up my grandparents had a ranch near Yellowstone (Island Park, Idaho) so we went camping up there a lot and I love the quakies up there. My dad always puts a ton of them in his yard because he loves them so much, so I also get my love of them from him.

LeishaMaw said...

Ali, anytime. :) Wahooing is an important part of every day.

Brenda, I always wanted quakies in my yard, but my dad didn't want to deal with all the little upstarts so we never had them growing up. I had to love from afar. Sniff. But guess what I have in my yard? Yup, a whole herd of laughing quakies...and all their little babies. So worth it. :)

Congrats on your awards!

Amie Borst said...

I loved the WIFYR conference (went in 2009). Wish I could go again someday....

L.T. Elliot said...

Congrats on the awards! I love that you'd revisit your first kiss. And in the rain?! Oh, I so want to hear this story!

LeishaMaw said...

Marne', thanks!

Amie, start saving your pennies, it's worth every one. :)

L.T., yup in the rain. I'll have to tell the whole story sometime. :)

Julie Daines said...

Haha! I wish I knew all this crazy stuff about you BEFORE the conference. I would have given you a harder time...

Julie Daines said...

And PS: I make my kids wash the dishes for FREE!

LeishaMaw said...

Julie, why am I suddenly grateful this post went up AFTER? He he. And I make them do chores for free, too. The dishes she gets paid to do are when it's my turn to do that chore. See, mom of the year for sure. lol

You do not resemble Burt, so there. Pick a new character.
