Now to pass it on to five blogs that are over the top!
1. Sara at The Babbling Flow of a Fledgling Scribbler
2. Julie at The Climb
3. Diana at Writing Roller Coasters ***
4. Patti Nielson
5. Roni at Fiction Groupie

Well, being the severe slacker/procrastinator that I am, I was going to pass on a few more awards that I got LAST YEAR (November and December), but I can't find my list of who gave them to me. And I refuse to pass them on without acknowledging those fabulous people. So I will search my study and pass out the awards (yeah, I know you're dying for that) as soon as the missing list is recovered.

*** This is a shout out for Diana. She is having a sweet 100 followers contest at her blog. Check it out! The deadline to sign up is this Friday.

  5. Thank you so much for the award and the shout out! *hugs!* Your answers were great, I can't wait to do mine! (I love italian too, and you bet I see us both published in six years!)

  6. Awesome answers!!! Congratulations!!! Love your blog so I know it's well deserved!

  7. Oh, good answers!! I feel like I know so much about you now. Loved your answer to your dream last night!! Haha. Congrats on your award!

  8. Great answers! And, congrats on your award! : )

  9. All of your answers are duly logged for future reference. ;)

    Congrats to you!

  10. Yay for awards! I'm terrible for passing those on.

    The last time you cried was December?! Sigh. I guess I'm a bit emo. But hey, I'm getting better. Now maybe I average once a month, and the last time was because my dad's dog died. Wait, I lied. Two weeks ago I got really mad at my silly husband and shed a few tears of frustration before deciding to end the feud with a pillow fight. It was much more satisfactory :)

  11. Morgan - Lol! I was a total crybaby during my last pregnancy. I cried at least once a week.

  12. Congrats on your award and to the other award winners - those are great blogs!!

    Oh yes - get a macbook! I love mine. Hard to do the one word thing!

    Good luck finding those people that gave you the lost awards ;o)

  13. Congratulations Melissa! I'm glad you've laughed today!

  14. Congrats on the award! It was so fun to read all of your answers, we definitely have a lot of things in common :) Now I want to try a strawberry muffin, I've never had one!

  15. Erica, Natalie and Julie - Thanks!

  16. I love reading these one-word answers! So fun.

  17. Phew, I finally did it!! Thanks again :)
