Another award!

Wow, it really is award season in blog land! The amazing St. Elsewhere, from My Lady of the Lantern, awarded me with the Stylish Blogger Award.

It's about the same exercise as for the Versatile Blogger Award:
*Put the image on your blog
*Thank and link back to the person who gave you the award
*Say seven things about yourself
*Pass the award on to 10-15 other bloggers you feel deserve this award
*Contact the awarded bloggers to let them know they've won

With the first two items covered, here we go for seven things about me:
  1. I cannot stand it when someone is wrong, I always have to correct them. My sister refers to this habit as me saying "no, it's not like that!" (which I said to her when I was four).
  2. I am very much my mother's daughter. I realize that even more now that she's gone.
  3. I find it hard to just sit down and relax (a habit inherited from my dad, and rooted in Dutch calvinism).
  4. There is one lady at my pharmacy who's super nice and caring regarding my IF journey, but somehow I have the feeling she jinxes my chances (because I've been having BFNs every time she gave me my meds) - I almost walked out when I came in this morning to get my post-transfer prescription filled and saw her behind the counter. But then I told myself I'm not superstitious and went in anyway.
  5. When we just moved here I was absolutely not into the warm meals for lunch (that last for two hours), but recently my ham, cheese, and peanut butter sandwiches have become increasingly boring.
  6. I should be doing some serious work instead of spending so much time blogging, but especially during the 2ww I just can't seem to concentrate on anything else.
  7. I wish the sea was still only a bike ride away.

I'll now pass this award on to:
(insert pause for a commercial break)
  1. Emily @ keep calm and carry on
  2. PJ @ double blessings
  3. Corinne @ Dealing with DOR
  4. Just Heather @ Life in Finland
  5. Erika @ Something Beautiful
  6. Shannon @ My Life in Stirrups
  7. Preshus Me @ Preshus Me
And I'll keep it at that. It was hard enough to get to 15 blogs for the previous award show...

I share the love for sea! I love it...and lady, you have managed the fastest adoption of an award into a post! :-)

You take care...

Keep yourself oh-so-busy!

You know, what will be, will be!

Hi! I miss the sea as well, living in the middle of Seoul makes it difficult...

I'm returning your ICLW visit. I'm afraid I have not been very sociable so far but I'm sworn to be better!

Hope the 2WW is going okay...

Erika said...

Thanks for the award!! :) I can't imagine living somewhere where the sea is a bike ride away-- sounds wonderful!!! But then I guess I'd need to get a bike... :)

Still love my cheese sandwich, my eternal 'bruine boterham met kaas'. But after a month in Thailand I even had rice for breakfast. (The porridge with ginger thing)
Sometimes it is just easier to do as the Romans do. (but harder to stay awake after....)

Reading Valery's remark, reminded me of the superb porridge I had for breakfast once in was warm, salty, had pork and very filling...we used to fill our tummy tanks before we ventured out anywhere...
