Blog Bling!

It may not seem like I like bling with First Draft looking so unfinished, but I like bling and girly stuff. Peggy Nolan added First Draft to the list of blogs she likes to read. I'm passing on the bling.

The rules are:
1. List 10 things that make you happy.
2. Try to do at least one thing on the list today.
3. List 10 bloggers who brighten your day.
4. Those of you to whom I give this award are to link back to my blog and perpetuate the happy with your own lists and recipients and whatnot.

Ten Things That Bring Happiness to Me
1. My three awesome sons
2. Friends and extended Family
3. Writing novels
4. Anything about the writing craft
5. California [beaches] and Arizona
6. Music that inspires me
7. Serenity moments
8. Creative moments
9. Native American people, culture, art
10. Theatre
11. Smiling (a bonus item)

When the Bling Arrived


  1. Thank you very much! You listed a blog I don't post on very often though. Would it be ok to do this on my Chez Aspie blog where I post a few times a week? xo

  2. Whoops! This turned into a bit of a task. I think I got confused. I've changed the link. I really like that pic of the deer. I've never seen so many on a deer trail. Thanks for pointing out I'd posted the wrong link.

  3. Thank you for this sweet award, I'm posting about it later and got one for you :)

  4. Nadine,

    Your blog is so helpful to me! thank you for all that you do and the knowledge you share!

  5. Okay! Group hug! We are going to make this a great year. All of us together -- we can't miss.
