Wow! Another Award!

I could get used to this!  Nathanael over to This Is How It Feels gave me another award.  If he wasn't gay, I'd think he had a crush on me.  We've been mutual blog buddies for a while now, but this was another nice surprise.  You know, one of these days I'm going to have to give him an award.  Maybe a "You're Good For My Blogging Ego" award or something along those lines.

Of course, as with any blog award, this one has some rules:
  1. Post ten things that make you happy
  2. Pass it on to ten other bloggers
Ten things that make Gun Diva happy: (in no certain order.  Well, except maybe for the first one)
  • RockCrawlinChef - otherwise I wouldn't have married him
  • Family - and I've got lots of it
  • Estes - the equine love of my life
  • Books - can't imagine life without them; they are the world's cheapest vacation
  • Shooting - there's nothing quite as empowering as a controlled explosion
  • Godiva Dark Chocolate with Raspberries - Glenna, you're still in trouble for introducing me to those!
  • Fried Ice Cream
  • Jimmy Buffett - another cheap vacation
  • Swinging from the chandelier
  • My girls - there's so much I wouldn't have been able to make it through without them.
Ten bloggers: (again, in no certain order)
  • Damzee at Living In Distress.  C'mon, how can you not love a story about Damsel (the character's name) living in Distress (the city)?
  • Mel at Boots and Saddles .  I'm not an endurance rider.  In fact, I know nothing about it, but I'm learning a lot from Mel.  Her mare Farley looks a bit like my Estes and sounds like she's got the same attitude, too.
  • Sally at Environmental Arts and Faerie Houses.  I love her work.  Whenever I'm having a bad day, I just hop on over to her blog for a quick fix.
  • Meg at Fuzzle Me Please.  She's a fellow WriMo, who is also a horse person.  I love reading her exploits with her horses.
  • Little Farm. Growing.  Boyles Family Farm is a local family trying to eek out a living as new (been at it less than a year) farmers.  I love reading about their trials and successes.
  • MJ at Tetanus Tomato.  I love her sense of humor.
  • K. Erickson at Preachers and Horse Thieves.  His wickedness reared its hilarious head with his Tiger posts.
  • Keep Smiling Smileyfreak!  I must need a lot of laughter in my life, because I keep coming back to the blogs that crack. me. up.  This is one of them.
  • JennyMac at Let's Have A Cocktail...  So I'm cheating with this one.  I stole her from Nathanael, but, damn, the woman's hysterical.
  • Jessica at Rome Photo Blog.  I love Italy and this lucky girl gets to live there.  And she's a talented photographer to boot.
Whew, that was tough.  Mostly because ole Tink (Nathanael) and I obviously share the same sense of humor, so it's hard to find blogs that he hasn't already given an award to.  Only one duplicate.  Not too bad.

Hahaha. then again, if I weren't gay, I would still be blogging from Iraq... If I were blogging at all.

Whoa. Just realized that the blogosphere is mostly women...

well, maybe those are the only ones I read, lmao. eh. Well deserved, and you are one of my earliest, most loyal readers, and I think everyone should read what you have to say :-)

P.S. I can agree with Bullet #'s:

2, 3-6, 9-10. :-)

Joy said...

Congrats on your award! I'll have to check out some of those links you posted.

p.s. welcome to the SITS community!

GunDiva said...

Thanks, Tink, you're making me blush again. Hmm, I hadn't thought of you not blogging from Iraq...way to turn my world on its head.

Joy, thanks for stopping by. I think you'll enjoy at least a few of the links. I tried for a variety, though I follow probably between 20-30. I find more every day to follow.

oh wow... i think i just discovered the potential gravity of what I just said when that isn't what I meant at all, lol.

way to stick my feet in my mouth.

Mel said...

Boyles Family Farms said...

Thanks so much! That's an honor. I don't know how to get it to my blog, though. I'm a total moron about such things. Can you help?
