Kreativ Blogger Award
Michael Pierce gave me an awesome blog award last week.  Thanks, Michael!  It's called a Kreative Blogger award and I think it's coowell!!  

Anyway, here's how the award works:
Thank and link back to the person who presented you with the award.
Answer the ten questions below.
Share ten random facts/thoughts about yourself.
Nominate seven worthy blogs for the Kreativ Blogger Award.

What is your favorite song?
Right now, I'm love'n The Black Keys. My favorite song is Little Black Submarine, but I had to post the Howlin' For You video.

What is your favorite dessert?
Chocolate covered pretzels

What ticks you off?
When I procrastinate!  

When you're upset, what do you d--
It depends how upset.

Which is/was your favorite pet?
Duh...Fred is the one and only. :)

Which do you prefer, black or white?
Um, black. That's another duh, right?

What is your biggest fear?
I have too many.  I'm a mother so I'd say my biggest fear is with my kids. I could go on an on, but I think you get the point.  Aside from that, I think I have a ridiculous fear that I suck at novel writing.

What is your attitude mostly?
I prefer to look at the bright side of things, but have a tendency to see the bad.  Dammit, do you see my problem?

What is perfection?
Perfection is in the eye of the beholder.

What is your guilty pleasure?

Ten random things about me... I know I'm cheating, but I already did a 10 random post that is here. Check it out.

I'm passing this award onto:
- Gina Gao

If you don't get  a chance to participate, don't worry!  If you can, try to have some fun.
