I'm Irresistibly Sweet!







I received the Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award from Iris Blobel, Deniz Bevan, and Amy. Thanks, Iris, Deniz, and Amy!


To accept this award, I need to list seven random facts about myself:

1. My favorite TV shows are Big Bang Theory and House.

2. I watch movies while I run on the treadmill. Right now I'm watching Life as a House, one of my all-time favorite movies.

3. My favorite books are the Hunger Games books.

4. My favorite food is coconut cream pie (yum!)

5. I love horror movies, especially in the summer. No idea why I enjoy them more in the summer, but I do.

6. I live with my husband, three kids, a dog, a cat, a fish, and two frogs.

7. I have a BS degree in electrical engineering, but I haven't worked outside the home in fifteen years. Sometimes I'll do something not-so-brilliant, and my husband will say, "Michigan State called, they want their degree back. " Yep, he's a charmer all right.


And I'm supposed to pass the award on to 10 other awesome blog buddies:


1. Tracy @ My Thoughtful Spot

2. Trisha @ WORD + STUFF




6. Stephanie Haefner @ The Writer's Cocoon

7. Cindy Borgne @ Dreamer's Perch


9. Beth @ Of Muses and Meringues



How about you? What's your favorite movie/tv show/book/food? Do you like horror movies?

Teehee...regarding your husband's comment! But I'm sure your analytical skills have helped out with many projects. My favourite tv show was Supernatural but I didn't like the final episode this year, so I think my allegiance has ended.

Love this little random list. Especially finding out you have two frogs. too funny!

Favourite movie - The Last of the Mohicans
TV show - Firefly
Book - Dark and Hollow Places (so far this year)
Food - brownies

Horror - I'm forced to watch because hubby loves them. I good trick I've found is to plug your ears. It's less scary without the sound.

Congrats on the award--well deserved! I'm also craving some coconut cream pie!

Movie recommendation: The Crazies. Really, really scary. Here's a link to it: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0455407/

Congrats on your Sweet Award, and to your nominees too :)

Can you believe I've never, ever had coconut cream pie? I'll definitely have to try it the next time I see it!

The Happy Whisk said...

Neato on the award. Go you. Thanks for thinking of me as well. Hey, what's the names of those two frog? And how to you come to own frogs as pets?

DEZMOND said...

A coconut cream pie? We soooo need the recipe :)

Love it!
Congrats to you and the rest of the winners on the award!

Lydia K said...

I'm a sucker for Nora Ephron movies and John Hughes movies. I wish I could watch those while I worked out!

Stina Lindenblatt said...

Wow, you are super sweet.

I have a MSc, but my old university hasn't asked for it back either. ;)

Trisha said...

Thanks so much for the award :) Since I have already received this I don't think i'll do the whole shebang again, but will definitely acknowledge you in an upcoming post :)

Cheers so much!!

Iris Blobel said...

LOL at your husband's comment !!!! and I love the Big Bang theory as well ... :-)

Medeia Sharif said...

Congrats on the award.

I love horror movies.

Myrna Foster said...

Your husband's quip cracked me up. He sounds like my dad. Congrats on the award!

Lynda R Young said...

congrats on your award. I love Big Bang Theory too. So funny.

Al said...

Fun facts!
Congrats on the award.

J.C. Martin said...

Thank you Susan! My favourite movie is probably Kung Fu Panda, both 1 and 2! Love the combo of cuteness and kung fu awesomeness! Finding Nemo would be a close second! Have not been watching much TV lately, but I do enjoy the odd Two and a Half Men. My favourite book(s) is the Earth's Children series by Jean M. Auel.

As for favourite food, that's an impossible question for me to answer! :)

Tracy said...

Awww Susan, those are wonderful things; especially the hubby's comments-he's an endearing one, isn't he?

thank you so much for such a 'sweet' award; I'm honored! I'm already thinking about what I could write.

BTW, I don't know so much that I like horror movies but I do like pyschological thrillers; they intrigue me tremendously! I also love coconut cream pie--did you ever have a coconut cream pie blizzard from DQ? Ummm, yum!

thanks again and I will definitely get working on my 7 :)

Beth said...

Thanks, Susan! I'm really flattered that you'd include me in this list!
I'm equally impressed by the three kids and the electrical engineering degree. (I have an MBA, and there are moments I think they'd like the degree back too!)

Cinders said...

Thanks for the award, Susan.

Julie Dao said...

Congrats on your awards, Susan!! We have the same EXCELLENT taste in TV shows and movies :) I also love the Big Bang Theory and Life As a House.

Hema P. said...

Congratulations, Susan, and yes, you are sweet! :) Amateur slueth/mystery is one of my favorite genres to read, but I don't go for the ones that go all gross and psycopathic on description of the crimes and dead bodies. Ditto with movies.

Jemi Fraser said...

You are a sweetie! :) I LOVE Big Bang - so much fun!! Not coconut pie or coconut anything actually.

PS - I tagged you over at my blog today :)

Deniz Bevan said...

Loved seeing your answers, Susan! Frogs, too? That sounds like a great household :-)

Talli Roland said...

Wow, you're a clever one! A BSc in electrical engineering!

Hope you're having a good weekend!

Nas Dean said...

Congratulations on the award.
And thank you so much for awarding me, I'll be sure to post about it as soon as I can.

Cynthia Chapman Willis said...

Thanks for the blog award, Susan. I'm baking you a coconut cream pie in gratitude. ; )

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

Congratulations on the awards. :) I had no idea you liked scary movies too. K and I stay up late watching them in the summer.

Samantha Sotto-Yambao said...

Congrats on your award! :-) I used to love watching horror movies, but I think I've gotten chicken with age. Sigh...
