Very Inspiring Blogger Award

Good Afternoon Whipper Snappers! I am tickled pink to announce that I have been nominated for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award, by Comfytown Chronicles . So happy that you think I am very inspiring! This is a first for me, and CC, I am so very glad it was you! Wink!  I have been nominated for other awards as well, and I am currently playing catch up on getting those out! They will be coming soon!

So there are only two rules to this award;
1- you must tell & things about yourself
2-you must nominate other bloggers
So here goes with my 7 random facts!
1- My mother died 16 months ago.  She was my best friend.  I did her makeup at the funeral home, before her services, like I promised her I would.  One of my bff's came along for moral support, and two other friends showed up, and we turned it into a laughing, crying, morbidly hilarious makeup slumber party with my mom, just like we used to have when we were all younger.  The other two girls were like her daughters, so I am sure my momma was looking down from heaven laughing with us!
2- I have a beach fetish.  I went to Myrtle Beach every summer of my life when I was younger, on family vacations.  I have been to Cancun, Mexico twice, Cozumel, Mexico twice, the Atlantis Resort in Paradise Island, Bahamas, twice.  I have been to Clearwater Beach, FL, Daytona Beach, FL, OBX 4x, Virginia Beach, and that is all I can remember at the moment.
3-I used to follow WWF, WCCW, ECW, and all other major wrestling associations/federations.  My grandmother got my entire family hooked, when we went with her.  I used to, during and after college, go around and chase the wrestlers for autographs for my little brother.  I was once, invited back to the hotel room of one Mr. Arn Anderson, in Charleston, WV at Joey's, for those of you who may remember that landmark! I was definitely honored! ( I did not go of course!) (and for the record, I haven't followed wrestling in a very long time!) Tommy Rich and Buzz Sawyer baby! Old school!
4. I went to Marshall University, in Huntington, WV.  It is the school that the movie, We Are Marshall, is about.  I was an extra in the stands for the movie, at the annual spring Green and White game.
5. I have 3 tattoos, each with a bestie.  I want three more, one with Hubbie the dearest, a kid based tat, and a memorial tattoo to my momma.
6. I write three blogs.   This one, another one that chronicles my journey in grief after losing my mother, and a super secret bitchy blog, that my family does not have access to! Hah! A girl has to get it all out somehow, somewhere, right?
7. I have the biggest heart.  I cry at sad commercials.  I cried at the contestant story on The Voice last week, where his momma had two months to live, after being diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer. I love everybody!
And now for my nominees!
