Miscellaneous Post for Catching Up

Sorry for the lapse in reviews last week! I was on our annual vacation with my family. I posted pictures last year and if I can get it together, I’ll post a few from this year as well.

And while I wasn’t blogging, I was reading. I marked three off of my TBR Challenge pile. (One was The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, which I did review already.) In addition, we ate at a fabulous restaurant, and I took pictures for a review, so I’ll be working on that post as well.

And then in the meantime, I was honored with two very kind blog awards. The first came from Zara at This Bookish Life, and the second award came from Misti at It’s a Mann’s World.

The rules for the “Oh My Blog!” award are:
1. Get really excited that you got the coolest award EVER!

2. Choose ONE of the following options of accepting the OMB award:
(a) Get really drunk and blog for 15 minutes straight, or for as long as you can focus.
(b) Write about your most embarrassing moment.
(c) Write a “Soundtrack of your childhood” post.
(d) Make your next blog a ‘vlog’/video blog. Basically, you’re talking to the camera about whatever.
(e) Take a picture of yourself first thing in the morning, before you do anything else (hair, make up, etc) and post it.

3. Pass the award on to at least three, but preferably more, awesome bloggers. Don’t forget to tell them.

For the “Honest Scrap” award, I am to list 10 honest things about myself and pass the award on to 7 blogs.

Since I’m doing these two at the same time, I thought I’d combine them! So, here is my vlog of 10 honest things about Babbette. Enjoy!

Similar to how Misti gave her winners the option, I’m also offering these winners the option of which award they’d like to receive. They are all worthy of both! (And since for one award I was to choose three winners and the other seven, I’m meeting in the middle with five!)

Congratulations to:
Heather of Age 30+…A Lifetime of Books
Lauren at Geeb’s Book Club
Diane at Bibliophile By the Sea
Ana at Things Mean A Lot
Dar at Peeking Between the Pages

PS – You may notice that I’ve added my “followers” gadget back to my sidebar. I took it off awhile back because I figured that most folks are like me and have just added websites to their readers without going through the “follow” process. But just for kicks & giggles, I’ve put it back, so if do follow & you don’t see your avatar, add me here as well. Thanks!
