Charlie Sheen isn't the only winner!!

We have had torrential rains and wind out here in Northern California and with that came spotty internet service.  So, it wasn't until just now that I realized that my friend Sheri at Motivation for Health and Fitness passed to me my very first blog award!!

I am so touched that, of all of the blogs she reads, she thought to include me for this award.  I guess it still surprises me that other people actually read the stuff I write!  Anyway, Sheri has been instrumental in my continued writing and she will always be one of those people who have had a major impact in my life.

Now, I'm supposed to share a few things about myself that you may not know.  I'm not sure what you may know about me so this may not be new to you but here goes...

  • I was born in Tachikowa, Japan to American parents (Air Force Brat).
  • I graduated high school and went to college in Fairbanks, Alaska.
  • I've seen the Space Shuttle piggyback on a plane in Warner Robins, Georgia and the land at Edwards AFB, California.
  • I am running my first marathon on June 5, 2011.
I would like to pass this blog award on to a few people who have helped me sustain my blog while keeping me yearning for more posts from them...

Kristina at Life as Kristina

There are others I would mention but I don't know of the writers of those blogs want to be put in the spotlight, so to speak.  (But, you can find these gems on my sidebar).

I hope you enjoy reading some of the blogs I've mentioned above.   And please be sure the check out Sheri's blog as well!!

  2. Thanks my friend!! Now, if only I could be as witty as you!! I absolutely love your blog and look forward to new posts. Even my boyfriend reads it!!!

  3. Thank you so much Lynn for your words of friendship! You are so dear to me, I am so thankful we met and have continued to stay in touch to support one another.

    That is so neat, you were born in Japan! I love this about the blog award we can learn a little more about the person we read regularly. :)

  4. Thanks for your thoughtful comment on my fitblogger post today. Clever post title:) My son even worked Charlie into a speech he plans to give. Talk about crazy fame. Off to check out those other blogs...

  5. Congratulations, Lynn - you certainly deserve it :) And I love your post title as well - too funny!
    Thank you for passing along this award to me and for thinking of me. Means a great deal coming from you!
    I didn't know any of those things about you.
    Alaska? That must have been pretty interesting, I would imagine.
