Awards!

I've won an award! This is so great. I'm just trying to catch up on some reading this fine Saturday morning, hoping to avoid the headache that is payment for too much fun last night, and here I get such a great surprise!
The Premio MEME Blog Award
Thanks to Cathy at Accountants can Cook?

meme (mēm) n. A unit of cultural information, such as a cultural practice or idea, that is transmitted verbally or by repeated action from one mind to another.//
[Shortening (modeled on gene) of mimeme, from Greek mimēma, something imitated, from mimeisthai, to imitate; see mimesis.]//

Rules:
1. list 7 personality traits
2. tag/award 7 blogs that deserve such fine recognition for the personalities that they share with the blogging world.
1. Adventurous: I like to try new things.
2. Goal-Oriented: I usually create a goal to pursue before I will continue with an activity. An example is running - the goal of finishing a race pushes me to hit the pavement. Or using this blog to help me improve my baking (projects need to be successful and often so I can post something!)
3. Competitive: I look to win when I do something. When I "win" it means that I have improved in some way, I have put in full effort, and I have made progress in my own development.
4. Loyal: eternal love and support of my husband, my family, my city/home, my baseball team (go Twins!) - even when they are wrong or not 'winning'.
5. Happy: I like to see the happy side of life. I don't dwell on things that I can't change and change what I can.
6. Flexible: because I can be happy anywhere - i don't have a problem with changing plans, changing goals, or changing directions. I need to be flexible to be happy - and I need to be happy in order to be flexible.
7. Curious/Learner: I love to read, I love to learn about new things. I love knowing enough about something to be a resource to others.
Now - I would like to meme some fellow bloggers that you should check out:
The Sweet Spot: from one aspiring trophy wife to another!
Healthy Delicious: love the meat-free fridays!
Culinary Wannabe: great mix of classic food with a fresh perspective
From Donuts to Delirium: Heavenly Housewife - so fun to read!
Proceed with Caution: says she's 'learning' but has alot to teach with great recipes.
Tangled Noodle: very smart postings that give such great perspective - and often leaving friendly comments that are much appreciated. Often the recipient of such awards - for good reason!
Lovin' from the Oven: I learn alot from Frieda's posts - they are very smart and fun to read.

How lovely, thank you so much for the honour :D, I will let you know when I complete my list. Hope you are having a great weekend. Just came back from eating out with Hubby, ate way too much as usual. Time to go back into my cage now!

Tangled Noodle said...

Thank you! I'd better get on the ball and start thinking about my answers. The first, of course, is going to be "Procrastinator Extraordinaire!"

Oh how sweet!

This is my first Meme and I am so excited!

Now that I've minded my manners, I am off to read about this delish looking chicken you have posted below.
