"11" people I'm Tagging: Just kidding I mean "4"
Now, I’ll share below some awesome blogs with less than 200 followers that everyone should go visit. You are supposed to have 11 but for now I have four.


  1. Thank you for the Liebster! And thank you for the other 3 recommendations- those sites are all new to me. I had to play male roles twice- Shakespeare's Shylock and Father Mulcahy (M.A.S.H.).

    1. You're welcome Lauri! We have more stuff in common yay :)

  2. Sincere thanks for this award! After all, I love talking about myself, just not behind my back. hehe! Now, I may need to languish over the questions you are "making" me answer, but I'll be fine. Really, I will.

    I guess sooner or later all my blogging buddies will know all my secrets anyway. so sooner is better than later. I hope.

    Thanks Jennifer. This is going to be fun. I'll drop you a "hey!" when I have it posted:)

    1. Oh. And I *love* your new blog template and background.
      And I *loved* your answers to Kate's Questions and the facts about you:)

    2. Haha, awesome. I can't wait to read your answers! Thank you for the super nice compliments about my blog. *blush* :)

    3. I finally got it published! Whew! I didn't think I would ever build up enough courage to hit the "publish" button:)

  3. I so enjoy these award posts, because they let me learn some cool things about the person!

    I've never had to play a male role, but I have been called upon to sing tenor in a choir, and even bass! (I'm a mezzo-soprano.) Does that count?

    And I'm pretty good at cookies, but my muffins are invariably like rocks.

    Great to read this stuff! Congrats on your award, and may your writing and rhyming go from strength to strength!

    1. Wow, that counts if I had to do it. I'm sure you did lovely Haha.
      I'm okay with muffins if I buy the box types. I'm such a cheater. :)

      Thanks for the supportive words Beth!

  4. Fun. I met John Stamos when he was on General Hospital. Ah, youth.

  5. Fun to learn more about you! I was once in the same room as Harrison Ford - does that count?

    1. I'm so jealous, Harrison Ford!?! Love him and YES he definitely counts.

  6. Oh no, you caught me and my blog undressed! Nevertheless, I'm so excited about the recognition! Thank you Jennifer! I've visited the other sites you've listed! So glad I dropped by their place. It was a swell visit. Okay, so I've got tests this weekend. After that, I'm diving into those eleven questions.

    1. You're welcome. I like your term undressed. I think I'll steal it. You left a "Be-right-back" sign so you're all good in my book. I definitely needed to take breaks during the summer. Busy busy. Can't wait to check out your answers.

  7. This was fun to get to know you Jennifer. I did play a very small male part when I was about 10yrs old, but I refused to have my long hair put I love to cook, so I can give you some tips, if you like.
    Great post.

    1. I think I was ten too and branded from that day on. That's what I get for being the last to raise my hand and pick what I wanted to be. Lol.

      I would love to get some tip from you! Thank you so much!!! I'm always looking for easy and delicious dinner recipes and fun desserts.

  8. Ooo Field Hockey! How cool! You should try and play again. :)

  9. Awesome post, Jennifer! Love it! xoxo

  10. I would move to the beach if I could too or to the mountains.


Love to hear what you have to say!
