7 x 7 Link Award

7 Oct

Wow! If I had realized how special this award was, maybe I wouldn’t have put other important things to do before it! My sincere thanks go to Peri’s Spice Ladle for nominating me for this award (and for her patience in waiting for me to catch up!)

I realize I could take the easy road and nominate people I have nominated in the past. However, I prefer to search for new nominees not just for my benefit in learning what is out there, but for your benefit too. This way, we both get introduced to more blogs.

Say What?
I had to re-read the rules to this award and I did a double-take at the “previous links” rule. Why, I have to examine my own blog! Now there’s a switch! I get to do some self promotion. Yeaaaaaa!!!

The rules are pretty loose and open to interpretation. They are the most unruly rules I’ve ever come across. This is a good thing and to my liking!

The Rules:

  • Give thanks and acknowledgements to the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  • List 7 of your previous links in the following categories. Most Helpful, Most Popular, Most Beautiful Piece, Most Controversial, Most Surprisingly Successful, Most Underrated, Most Pride Worthy.
  • List 7 things about yourself.
  • Nominate 7 other bloggers for this award.

7 Things about myself:

1. I like 7-Up.

2.My favorite drink used to be 7 & 7.

3.Betty White jokes that she has the hots for Robert Redford. When she kicks the bucket, I want to be next in line for Bob. (Sorry Betty.) Then I’ll be in 7th heaven.

4. I’ve never seen the movies: 7 Brides for 7 Brothers, or The 7 Deadly Sins.

5. I’m not the 7th son (or 7th daughter for that matter).

6. I’ve never been to a 7-Eleven. (Or have I?)

7. I’ve yet to see any of the 7 Wonders of the World in person.

And the Awards go to:








Congratulations to the winners! Enjoy your award.

    Congratulations on the award and thanks for nominating my photography blog! That is very kind of you. I will take some time looking over your blog, the other nominees and see if I can come up with something. I had done this before on my main blog thirdeyemom but never thirdeyeworld. Thanks so much for thinking of me and congrats again on the award! πŸ™‚ Nicole

    Congrats on your award!! I enjoyed how you did your 7 things — very fun! And as a little side note, I actually had drinks once less than 10 feet away from Robert Redford. It was awesome just being in the same room as him!!

      LOL! No kidding! Thanks for sharing that one! When I went to my (ex) husband’s prom, Jack Jones was the entertainment. All the tables were on the floor where he sang and he came over to our table and shook my hand! I kept saying, “I’ll never wash this hand!” LOL! Definitely a thrill.

    What a fun award! Congratulations. I like your “7” things.


    • Marcella Rousseau October 8, 2012 at 5:26 pm #

      Thank you and thank you : – ) Good thing there were only 7 because I ran out after the 7th one! LOL! Does that make any sense. NO!
