And the Award Goes to ...

... me?

I'd like to thank my blog friend Iris Took for nominating me for
the Beautiful Blogger Award! I had no idea I was even in the running; the field was quite competitive this year. ;-)

P.S. I just found out that TWO people think I'm cool. Thank you, Java Gabble, for nominating me! Have I ever told you how much we miss you?

The Rules:

1. Thank the person who nominated me for this award.
2. Copy the award & place it on my blog.
3. Link to the person who nominated me for this award.
4. Share 7 interesting things about myself.
5. Nominate 7 bloggers.

7 Things About Me:

1. My name is Amber (I was named after a rock and a beer can), but people often call me Heather.
2. I've nearly died twice - once when I jumped into a pond at age 2 and once when I had pneumonia at age 12.
3. I went bungee jumping when I was 16.
4. I once won a radio contest because I was the first caller to correctly name the dot over the letter 'i'.
5. I knew the day I met my husband that I was going to marry him.
6. My first car was an orange 1974 Volkswagen Super Beetle.
7. When I was 19, a cop pulled a gun on me.

7 Nominations:

This part was hard because I wasn't sure what criteria to base my nominations on, so ... I'm nominating blogs that I enjoy reading; I think you'd enjoy them too.

1. A Couple More Hours - I love seeing pictures of the girls and her Etsy Favorites Wednesday.
2. Sassy Times - I have no idea how I came across her blog, but I enjoy reading it - and trying to guess the name of her baby girl.
3. The Shamrock Stamper - I just recently started reading this blog of a high school friend. I love seeing what she's created each week.
4. Wrestling Kitties - I think she is hilarious! I wish I could do funny in writing as well as she does.
5. Written Permission - I like the conversational, easy-going tone of her blog. And I'm a sucker for reoccurring topics, such as her 'Stuff on My Desk'. (She's also pulls funny of well.)
6. Weighty Issues - I'm so excited about this blog. I can't wait to see what Jenn does with it.
7. Iris Took of Great Smials - I'm probably breaking a rule by nominating my nominator, but I really just enjoy reading Iris' blog. (And this is my list. So there.)

Why thank you!!

Your list is very interesting! A cop pulling a gun on you?! Almost died twice?! crazy

What is the dot over the i called?

SassyTimes said...

Awe, thanks! I think I need details on your list...a cop pulled a gun on you? Wow. I'd love to hear your reaction...

The dot over the i is called a tittle. (Giggle.)

The cop story goes like this: my car broke down and while I was waiting for help on the side of the road, a cop pulled up and walked to my window. He motioned for me to put my window down, but I couldn't because it was electric. I tried to tell him this, but he couldn't hear me. Then I started yelling and motioning like I was going to open the door, which lead to him unstrapping his gun and pulling it out of the holster. My friend Matt and I started yelling louder; the cop was yelling. Eventually, he caught on and no one was shot.

It was all good fun. ;-)

Holy Cow! What a story.

Tittle sounds totally dirty!

Thanks for nominating me again! That is so flattering.

B - when are you starting your blog?
