I would like to thank Ruth Josse of Ruth + Writing for this Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award.  If you get a chance, stop by and check it out!

The rules for the award are:

1. Link back and thank your givers.
2.Share 7 random things about yourself.
3.Choose some awesome people to pass the award to and leave a comment on their blog so they can claim them.

Let's see, I need to come up with 7 more random things about me:

1. I love living in the Blue Ridge Mountains because I really do get all four seasons.  I never really had them growing up in the valley of California, so each season has its own beauty.

2. I love Starbucks coffee, but never seem to have enough bucks when I want it!  Lol!

3. My office has an Ocean theme with Sea Mist colored walls and that makes me very happy.

4. I love to play pirates with my grandson (Little Man), but not in front of anyone else!  Lol!

5. I do tend to talk to myself when no one is around; there used to be four children sitting at my table, not to mention their friends, boyfriends, etc.

6. I have a beagle named Talei which means Precious in Fijian and is one of the characters in my book.

7. I love to make a large pot of my Grandpa McLain's Stew on Halloween night and I have many visitors stop by and partake.  My mother did the same.  I guess it's because their are a lot of nutritious ingredients that help to offset all the candy we eat!  Lol!

So there you have it, seven more random things about me and now to pass this Sweet award on to fellow writers!  They are:

Karen deBlieck of Simply Scribblings

WritingNut  of Writing in a Nutshell

Jen of Jen's Bookshelf

I chose them because they inspire me to be a better writer and a better woman.  ; )



  1. Congrats on the award, and it's fun to know more about you! I love that you play pirates with your grandson, and the name Talei just looks beautiful. I totally talk to myself too!! :D

  2. Congratulations on your award Sheri and thank you so much for thinking of me! :)

    I hear you on that Starbucks.. I actually really like it too, but there's definitely not enough "bucks"!

  3. Thank you Cortney, the random things are fun, but also can be a little embarrassing! Lol! ; )

    Thank you WrintingNut, yes, I am also a coffee fanatic, but usually try & recreate at home! ; )

  4. Great award. Congrats.

    As to talking to one's self . . . I'm my best conversational partner! Hate getting caught mid-sentence by my family though. They think I'm weird enough already.

  5. Thank you C. Lee, that has happened several times with my husband on his day off from work! Lol! He thinks I'm crazy! ; )

  6. Congratulations on your award. I would love to try your stew. It sounds so delicious.

  7. Thank you Michael, we call it his *Scottish* stew, but not sure if it wasn't something that he cooked up himself! He had 6 children to feed! ;)

  8. Thanks, Sheri! I also like to play pirate with my nephew and niece, but I have been known to do it in public!

  9. Congrats on your award and thank you for passing it on to me. I will be frequenting your blog--we have common beliefs and I am also a cancer survivor! Enjoy your weekend away. :)

  10. You are welcome Jen! I know they love it!

    Thank you Karen & you're welcome! Yes, I thought I spotted a sister! ; )
