"Kreativ Blogger" award !!!

Hey there ~ hope your weekend is off to a great start. Sal and I are enjoying a little down time, it has been a hectic week.

Sal had a research proposal deadline that made him quite scarce here at home for a while (think getting home from campus at 2:00 AM, *sigh*) ... such is the life of a professor (and his wife). If you think all that profs do is teach and grade papers ... NOPE!

Buddy had his 2nd round of chemotherapy this week also. He seems to be faring pretty well, even eating a big breakfast this morning. Next week, we'll make a trip back to the cancer clinic to make sure his white blood cell count is OK, we're trying to avoid another reaction like he had from the first treatment. Our angel !

So we're definitely enjoying some R&R this weekend ... today we caught a movie, My Life In Ruins. We're huge fans of My Big Fat Greek Wedding, so we were intrigued by this new one starring the same actor. Unfortunately, it lacked the charm and depth of MBFGW, but it was still OK ... the script was kind of slow at times, but it was then that I instead focused on the gorgeous scenery that is Greece! Tomorrow we'd love to get in some beach time, weather permitting (June is a VERY wet month here in SoFla!); tonight we're getting soaked.

And what a nice surprise I got this morning! Two of my Creative Escape gal pals, Timi in Texas and Shannon in Arizona, gave me a "Kreativ Blogger" award! How sweet is that? So now I'll pay-it-forward ... here are the "rules" for giving the award to someone you know:

1) Thank the person who nominated you for this award.....thanks Timi & Shannon!

2) Copy the logo onto your blog .... DONE!

3) Link to the person who nominated you for this award ... Timi's blog & Shannon's blog.

4) Share 7 things about yourself that people might find interesting ... (1) I have a mild-to-moderate fear of heights ... (2) my blood boils when I see people who clearly are not disabled parking in the disabled spaces ... (3) I'm a vegetarian for animal welfare, not health reasons (I'm often asked this question) ... (4) I love to watch TV (shame on me!) ... (5) I have a big collection of rocks & minerals (I love geology!) ... (6) my "adopted" manatee's name is Lily, and my name Susan means "Lily" also (isn't that cool?) ... (7) Sal says I have a great memory (just what every husband wants in a wife, right? LOL)

5. Nominate 6 Kreativ Bloggers and post links to their blogs:

Michelle, owner of Everything Scrapbook & Stamps in Lake Worth, Florida
Michelle, owner of Cherry Blossom Studio in Coconut Creek, Florida

Stop by their blogs to see what fun things they've got going on!

Enjoy the weekend,
