Lovely Awards & Fred the Bubbleblaster!

I was awarded with two blog awards recentely.  First, from the fabulous S. L. Hennessy and the other by stupendous Celia Robert.  These blogger babes are kick-a** writers AND some of the coolest peeps in the blogoshere.  Boy, do I feel pretty darn lucky.  Thanks guys!  If you haven't had a chance to visit these uber talented writer friends of mine, please do!  

The 7x7 award is all about refeaturing/linking previous post I've written in the seven categories below. This is such a killer award. Thanks, S. L. Hennessy! And now for the lists!

Most Beautiful Piece: I couldn't find a beautiful piece, but I chose to feature my flash fiction posts about Hallucinating Housewives posts.

Most Helpful Piece: Monday's post/Bloggers Charging for Reviews

Most Popular Piece - Review of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein

Most Controversial Piece: Is this bad, but I don't think I have one, but give me time!

Most Surprisingly Successful Piece: The Nether's Son

Most Underrated Piece: I'd say my most underrated posts have been my Creepy Classics posts. To be honest, I've sort of slacked off with my posting, which is so pathetic. I know. I'm sorry, damn it!

Most Pride-Worthy Piece: I'm stealing some of S.L. Hennessy's thunder here and agreeing that without a doubt my most pride-worthy posts were the A-Z Challenge posts. To blog almost everyday was an incredible challenge for me and I was damn proud not to miss one of them!

Fabulous Blog Ribbon!  

Before I forget...thanks again Celia!. I'm gonna keep this award simple and focus on the things I like/love and dislike!

Fridays with Fred
Fred likes to play with bubbles with my kids.  I took this shot of him going ballistic popping all the flying suds.  Go, Fred.  You sure know how to party!  

Be sure and stop by and visit Schatze over at Mary’s BookHounds too.
Have a great weekend.

Fred's gone a little loco there!
Congratulations on the awards. Your review of Frankenstein was the most popular? Did that surprise you?

The link awards are time consuming but I like going back and reading older posts that I missed. I laughed at the Hallucinating Housewives piece, so sad but so least the can be used as a source of inspiration for screwed up characters! (:

And love Fred, he can pop bubbles with the best of them!

Congrats on the awards! I've never tried bubbles with my dogs. I wonder if they'd like it, too. I actually like a point...and then it flips after several rounds and I get really frustrated. It needs to be done already! Hope you've had a great weekend. :)

Aw..Thank you mina for the Kind words. :)

I enjoyed reading your review on Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. Oh, what a character he was..:D

Ooh Fred makes me smile. :) I think he and Mellie (our dog) would get along just fine. She loves playing with bubbles as well.
