My journey to shoot for the moon.

Here is where I will attempt to fulfill the requirements for receiving this award.  If you’ll remember, the requirements were:
1. You must thank the person who has given you the award.

Thank you again Maxi.  You are such an inspirational blogger – I’m glad that you found me.
2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
3. Link the person who has nominated you for the award.

Here is the link to Maxi’s Comments.
4. Name 7 things about yourself that people might find interesting.

Let’s see – I have a teddy bear named Colors that I got from Build-A-Bear not that long ago.  I find it hard to believe that I’m not 18 (or 21) and skinny anymore.  My dog Kirby sleeps in bed with me, under the covers, between my legs.  My mom is one of my best friends.  I am a closet Romance Novel reader – I can read a Romance Novel in 2-3  hours and forget about real life.  I can eat an entire bag of Chips Ahoy Cookies (and it is part of the reason that I’m not skinny – but that part isn’t surprising).  In another life, I’d like to be a chef.  Michael’s favorite song, Stereo Hearts, is stuck in my head.  And so you can understand, here are the lyrics and a link to YouTube.

Stereo Hearts

[Adam Levine:]
My heart’s a stereo
It beats for you, so listen close
Hear my thoughts in every no-o-o-te
Make me your radio
And turn me up when you feel low
This melody was meant for you
Just sing along to my stereo

[Travie McCoy:]
Gym Class Heroes baby!
If I was just another dusty record on the shelf
Would you blow me off and play me like everybody else?
If I asked you to scratch my back, could you manage that?
Like yea fucked up, check it Travie, I can handle that
Furthermore, I apologize for any skipping tracks
It’s just the last girl that played me left a couple cracks
I used to, used to, used to, now I’m over that
‘Cause holding grudges over love is ancient artifacts

If I could only find a note to make you understand
I’d sing it softly in your ear and grab you by the hand
Just keep it stuck inside your head, like your favorite tune
And know my heart’s a stereo that only plays for you

[Chorus:]
My heart’s a stereo
It beats for you, so listen close
Hear my thoughts in every no-o-o-te
Make me your radio
And turn me up when you feel low
This melody was meant for you
Just sing along to my stereo

Oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh to my stereo
Oh oh oh oh so sing along to my stereo

[Travie McCoy:]
Let’s go!
If I was an old-school fifty pound boombox (remember them?)
Would you hold me on your shoulder wherever you walk
Would you turn my volume up in front of the cops (turn it up)
And crank it higher everytime they told you to stop
And all I ask is that you don’t get mad at me
When you have to purchase mad D batteries
Appreciate every mixtape your friends make
You never know we come and go like on the interstate

I think I finally found a note to make you understand
If you can hit it, sing along and take me by the hand
Just keep me stuck inside your head, like your favorite tune
You know my heart’s a stereo that only plays for you

[Chorus:]
My heart’s a stereo
It beats for you, so listen close
Hear my thoughts in every no-o-o-te
Make me your radio
Turn me up when you feel low
This melody was meant for you
Just sing along to my stereo

Oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh to my stereo
Oh oh oh oh so sing along to my stereo

[Bridge:]
I only pray you’ll never leave me behind (never leave me)
Because good music can be so hard to find (so hard to find)
I take your head and hold it closer to mine
Thought love was dead, but now you’re changing my mind

[Chorus:]
My heart’s a stereo
It beats for you, so listen close
Hear my thoughts in every no-o-o-te
Make me your radio
Turn me up when you feel low
This melody was meant for you
Just sing along to my stereo

Oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh to my stereo
Oh oh oh oh (Gym Class Heroes baby!) so sing along to my stereo

Yeah

5. Nominate 7 other Kreativ Bloggers.

This is where things become difficult.  I don’t read 7 other blogs.  I read Maxi’s Comments and a blog that is written by childhood friend I reconnected with on Facebook.  It was her blog that inspired me to write my own blog.  It is called, Tidbits from the Queen of Chaos.  I’ve also started reading the blog at Limebird Writers, as Limebirdbeth reads my blog and has been an amazing source of support and assistance.  I regularly check out WordPress for Freshly Pressed blogs, but not much has caught my eye at this point.

Originally, the Norwegian woman who started the award passed the award onto 4 other bloggers.  Even with that requirement, I can’t come up with that many.  So, I’m just going to have to owe 2-5.  I guess it gives me something to work towards.

6. Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate.

See #5.
7. Leave a comment on which of the blogs to let them know they have been nominated.

They should get pingbacks, but I’ll try to remember (as I am scheduling this to post rather than posting it immediately after writing).
