Over The Top!

I've been hoarding awards. It's bad, I know, but for some reason life is chaotic right now. I'm going to pass a few along in the coming weeks and today's is the Over the Top Award which I received from a wonderful lady- Guinevere at This is Not My Day Job. If you don't already follow her blog, you should! So for this award I have to answer all these questions using one word. If I was a gambling girl I'd bet that's not going to happen.

Your best friend? Husband
One place that I go to over and over? Italy
One person who emails me regularly? Co-workers

Okay, so I managed one word on most of them. And I'm going to pass this award on to some recently discovered blogs.

Ann Foxlee because she loves art!
Courtney Reese is host the Love at First Sight blog fest on February 14th!
Dominique at En Violet had a great post on repetition. We all know I'm totally guilty of this in early drafts.

There you have it, folks- a guilt free, responsibility free round of awards. Yahoo!

I love this award...its so fun! Congrats :)

Amalia T. said...

I feel like Alaska encompasses too much to be considered one word.

Congratulations on the award!

Jemi Fraser said...

Great answers, Stephanie - I think I'll avoid your cat if I'm ever up that way :)

Michelle Gregory said...


Joanne said...

Congrats on the Award, it's always fun to get to know fellow bloggers this way. Enjoyed browsing here!

Stephanie Thornton said...

Muse- Thanks! It is fun- I like awards with something like this list added in.

Amalia- Yeah, we like everything big in Alaska.

Jemi- Yeah. My cat is Satan. Anyone want her?

Michelle- Thanks!

Joanne- Thanks for stopping by!

The romantic query letter and the happy-ever-after said...

Felicitations on your well deserved award my dear.
Warm regards,

Well done on the award and I enjoyed your answers to the questions. I'm awful at hoarding awards; I should do a similar post soon to clear the shelves!

Dominique said...

God love Satan spawn cats. My best friend has a habit of owning only Satan spawn cats. (I'm telling you, there are only so many times you can wake up with a feline giving you That Look -- or worse, sitting on you and giving you That Look -- before concluding they're out to get you.) I hope your cat doesn't have secret plots against you. ;)

Congrats on the awards. No more hording, unless you're on the show "Horders" If you haven't seen it, watch it sometime... it's crazy.

I haven't seen it, but I"ve heard all about it. :)

Lisa and Laura said...

I love reading the one-word answers. I feel like I know you better. One word can say a whole lot!

Amalia T. said...

P.S. (slightly off topic) did you see that Rick Riordan is coming out with an Egypt series-- The Kane Chronicles-- it looks like it's Percy Jackson for Egyptian Mythology (without Percy of course).

I thought you'd want to know!

Natalie said...

Mmm, The Cheesecake factory. I think I'm overdue for some cheesecake.

Julie Dao said...

Congrats Stephanie! It's fun learning about my blogger friends through their lists :) I love Anthropologie too. And I think you're nice!

Susan R. Mills said...

Congrats on the award! I love your responses to the questions. I could answer a few of those the same way.
