Celebrating Fabulous, But Only Five?

In accepting the Fabulous Blog Ribbon, there are five rules I need to post and follow:

1. Thank the blogger who gave it to me and share the link back to the awarding blog.

2. Name 5 fabulous moments in my life.
3. Name 5 things that I love.
4. Name 5 things I hate.
5. Pass this ribbon to 5 deserving bloggers.

My humble thank you to Isabel Anders who nominated me to receive the Fabulous Blog Ribbon at http://isabelanders.wordpress.com/2012/07/07/stretching-the-ribbon-3-2/.  You are a fabulous writer and sage who inspires in me great thoughts, so this means a lot. 

Five Fabulous moments in my life:

  • Getting my first real (non-babysitting/housecleaning) job as a file clerk at 14
  • When each of my fur babies came into my life.
  • Marrying my husband in an outdoor garden wedding on what turned out to be the hottest day of that year - 116 degrees.
  • Reaching the rim of the Grand Canyon after my first time hiking down it and back up with 16lbs strapped on my back and 5lb hiking boots on my feet.
  • Seeing my name and something I wrote in print for the first time

Five (um, six) Fabulous Things I love:

  • Family and friends
  • Enthusiasm
  • Laughter
  • Nature
  • Creativity
  • Learning

Five Un-fabulous Things I hate:

  • Cruelty
  • Bullying
  • Narrow-mindedness
  • Willful ignorance
  • Blind obedience

Five Fabulous bloggers:

Since it is nearly impossible to choose only 5 from the fabulous bloggers I regularly read (though don't always have time to comment) on BlogHer, I decided to pick 5 new to me or new to BlogHer bloggers that I hope others will check out:
