An Autumn Award

Isn't this award the cutest? I got it from confessions of a 40-something mama queen her blog is so nice and welcoming! Thank you tardevel!

As with most awards it comes with rules, which of course is part of the fun!

Here is how we play:

1) I need to list 5 things I have always wanted to do.

2) Then contact 3 (or more) bloggin buds, and pass the award along to them.

I must say this is quite easy as I have soooo many aspirations and far fetched dreams! I will try to keep them realistic ok?

  1. I always wanted to bungee jump or fast rope through trees in a jungle of some sort

  2. Host a lovely dinner party for my blogging friends

  3. Have snow at Christmas (so much for realistic!)

  4. Take Gabby to Hollywood, she is such a little actress!

  5. Have a getaway weekend with the hubby, without my kids that I love soooo much, we take them everywhere!

Now to pass this award along to 3 blogging buddies:

  1. My friend Donna over at Donna's Den, Donna is a live one! She blogs from the heart and shoots from the hip! Visit her and you'll be glad you did! She is fiercely loyal and sweet!

  2. My friend Penny over at Always something by Penny who is such a sweetheart and a funny funny person, she leaves the sweetest and funniest comments that just warms the heart to read, she needs to post more though, visit her! you'll love her!

  3. And my friend buffie, everybody loves buffy, mostly because she is nutty and proud of it! If you never visited you are SOOOOOO missing out! Just by the name of her blog you know she is nutty, 'my left foot!', she may have to change the name of her blog soon, lol!! (long story!)

I am so coming to that dinner!!! Wouldn't that be the coolest thing ever. You know we'd all laugh so hard we'd never survive it. And i say we have it at your place because you live in paradise! Congrats on the award!

Chris said...

I so want to have a reunion some day in mid USA for our blog sisters, that would be a great get away for you, wouldn't it? LOL


Lynette said...

Well Raxx - Congrats on your award too!! Your list seems very do-able also. I've done the swinging through the trees bit, we have a big creek with a rope behind our house and I did it many years ago - what a rush!! It was great! I think my hubby even got a pic too - my mouth was wide open - I'm pretty sure I was scresming the whole way over!!
You need to take that weekend with your hubby soon!
Thanks for visiting me.

Donna Marie said...

Hey Raquel,

Congrats on your award! (You so deserve it!!!!)

Thanks a million for my award! I really appreciate it! :)


Justine said...

Aw, what a cute award, Raquel, and you deserve it!

As for snow at Christmas, why don't you and hubby plan a family vacation to the states during the winter one time? Definitely somewhere like Colorado, where there's always winter snow, and lots of nice places to visit.

Justine :o )

I never met anyone from
Trinidad and Tobago so I thought I'd drop by and say hello. I enjoyed reading a lil about you. Hmm Bungee jumping..That is still on my one day list of things to try lol.
It's always nice to meet new friends on this blogging journey *smile*

Blessings Lorie

Hi Raxx! I enjoyed reading your answers. I, too, would love to see snow on Christmas, but it hasn't happened very much in my life. I'd like a child free weekend once in awhile too, but it may have to wait a few more years. We take her everywhere too. We don't have that many more years w/ her! Anyway, click on my profile & e-mail me, and I'll answer your ?. Thanks! Tar

tardevil said...

P.S. I would love to attend a virtual dinner party at your place, if not the real thing! :O)

Mama said...

Hi from London, Raxx, I love your five things and hope you get to do them all, I am really missing blog-land.

My family and friends have me all booked up and I only have another week here so I am making the most of it, but am looking forward to coming back to San Fran for a rest and catching up. Have a lovely week, hugs, Kathy

Bo said...

Hi Raxx...congrats on your award! Be sure and set me a place at your blogger-friends dinner party! ;-) Bo

Lynette said...

Raxx - That photo you have under your bungee jumping answer, that is pretty much what my picture looks like except my mouth is wide open and screaming!! I think I did quit screaming about mid-way through, and it was an awesome feeling! In other words girl, I ain't posting that picture!! No way, no how!!

Penny said...

Raquel you deserve that award and you are the sweetest, funniest, most lovable person EVA, and I'd love to see you do the bungee jump. I have no doubt that you would have a blast! Thank you for the award, I look forward to posting it real soon.
luv ya, Penny

Deb said...

Hi Raxx! I think I'd like to fast rope myself! And I want to say go have that getaway weekend with hubs, I'll keep the kids anytime you need me! lol!!! Deb

SchmeckyGirl said...

Congrats on the award!!!

Gabby would make it big in Hollywood I'm sure. She's adorable. Show? LOL! I love it for about an hour.

Jill said...

Fun award!! Gosh there are so many things I have wanted to do and probably never will! You need to fly to Utah for Christmas so you can play in the snow! My uncle lives there and we had a white Christmas the year we went. :)

Donna Marie said...

Hey Raquel!!!! (smile)

There is no way that I would go to Venezuela to get a boob job!!!! I would come back with an A cup on the left and a C cup on the right!

Shelia said...

Hello pretty Raxx! Congratulations on your award! I enjoyed reading what you want! You know your snow on the beach reminded me of here about 5 years ago. We had snow on Christmas day! It had snowed once before about 100 years ago. What a trip!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;0

Kristens Creations said...

Hi Raxx, Thanks for stopping by and your nice compliments. Yes, I am a little bit of a perfectionist. he he. I'm working on that. I would like snow at christmas too. Being in Arkansas it's really rare, but about 5 yrs. ago we had an ice storm that hit christmas morning. It was a really bad one,knocked power out for days. I would like to be where you are in the sun and by the beach. Your lucky! Kristen
