It has come to my attention that people can’t find the badge to get. If you want the badge I’ll provide it again below. Remember, Double click on the badge to save it. I hope this clears up things and remember link back to me. You are great people .
Usually when you see a tag what’s the first thing that crosses your mind? Well if you’re anything like me, 2 things cross my mind. They are:
Why so many links?
What, another tag?
I’ve done several tags and if you want to see them you can go to AWARDS. I know the reason or at least I think I do why some don’t do awards and tags and that’s because of so many links, posts and etc… I’ll be honest, I hate the links but don’t mind posting. So Daisy Mae and I(mostly me) came up with an award/tag that has very little stipulations. It’s great (or at least I think so) so I hope you like our tag. Nothing fancy but we don’t want you want you to be disappointed if we don’t give it to you right away because we’ve got so many to give to were doing it monthly(or at least try that). Below is what our Award/Tag looks like.
We hope to start giving this award out either tonight or sometime tomorrow. This Award/Tag is to recognize all those good bloggers out there. We have 3 stipulations and you’ll find them below.
Give this Award to at least one blogger.
link to me when you give the award to some other blogger.
Put #CRYSTALANDDAISYMAE’SRECOGNITIONAWARD if you do a post or share.
That’s all you have to do. Easy. No posting. You only have to do a post if you want to.
This is our first time to make an Award/Tag of our own so hope everyone likes it. Keep in mind this Award takes in both of my sites so no one should feel left out.
What was your last movie you saw? The last movie I saw was when I was in college 25+ years ago and the movie wasn’t at a movie theater it was on VCR and the movie was IT by Steven King. I never read the book.
If your five-year old self suddenly occupies your body, what would the first thing be that your five-year old self will do? The first thing my five-year old self would do is to teach my four-year old sisters all kinds of things.
When was the last time you climbed a tree? A long time ago out at our camp.
Would you rather always be 10 minutes late or always be 20 minutes early? I would want to be always 20 minutes early.
If you were given five million dollars what will you do with it? I would give some to charity, give some to the church and put the rest in the bank. Who knows, maybe I would think of other things to do with this money If I were to ever get it.
What is the most interesting thing you have near you right now? I’m at a disadvantage here because I’m way out in the country, the most interesting thing near me are watching animals. We have a trail camera and we check it every 2-3 days and it’s interesting to see what’s on it. Watching the animals is my most interesting thing near me.

This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging, and they do it with so much love and passion.
WHO NOMINATED ME AND MY THANKS
I was nominated by Andrea from The Perks of being Different . I thank her from the bottom of heart for this great award. I’m glad she thinks so much of my blog. What a great compliment this is especially coming from another great blogger.
ANDREA’S QUESTIONS TO ME
Which Disney or Looney Toons character does your own character relate to? As I thought about this question, I finally decided that I couldn’t think of just one character but my character relates to a combination of characters. I think if we are really honest with ourselves everyone is a combination of characters.
Would you like to go back to the 90’s, a time without internet? Actually, I was in college in the 90’s and we had internet at the college. However, I would love to go back to a time without internet. So much simpler. Of course, I’m one of those people who do not own a cell phone only a computer.
Do yo like to cook from scratch?(make your own sauces, own dough from bread/pasta etc.) Cook?(laughing), I don’t cook. I think I cooked twice real meals but otherwise I like making popcorn the best.
What would you do on a first date? I think I would learn as much as I could about my the guy I’m thinking about dating.
Whats’ your favorite way of transportation? Hands Down A Car.
What your favorite emoji? I’m sure there are more emojis out there on cell phones but since I don’t have a phone just a computer, my top 3 favorite emojis are:
If I did not nominate you it’s not because I don’t think you deserve this award but because I have so many people I think do deserve this award so if I didn’t nominate you above and you want to do this award/tag feel free to. I just went with the first 15 I could think of. Also, don’t panic if you can’t think of 15 nominees, that’s OK because you only need to nominate 5+ bloggers. I went a little crazy.

10 THINGS I LOVE ABOUT ME
I LOVE MY HAIR. My hair is naturally curly and I only have to get it cut a few times. Also, I haven’t had to color or dye my hair yet. I have NO grey hairs. I love the fact I can wash my hair and go. No mouse, styling, curling iron needed.

I LOVE THE FACT I’M A BULLYING SURVIVOR. You read right I survived being bullied. I was bullied through college and with the support of my family and my faith in God got me through it.
I LOVE THE FACT I ACHIEVED 2 DEGREES. I graduated from a community college with an Associate Degree in Elementary Education then transferred to a 4 year university where I achieved a Sociology Degree(BS Degree). I was told after Highschool by a counselor that I would never achieve either of these degrees.
I LOVE THE FACT I’M SINGLE. I must admit that this was something I wasn’t crazy about when I was younger but as I got older and wiser and I got I actually love being single. I can do things when I want and can change my schedule if need be.
I LOVE HOW I’M DIFFERENT/SPECIAL. I’m one of a kind and despite what others may think I love the fact I’m special/different from other people.
I LOVE THE FACT I HAVE ROYALTY IN MY ANCESTRY. Yes, that’s right, I have royalty in my ancestry. Queen Elizabeth is in my ancestry(Not the current one). I didn’t even get an invitation to either royal wedding either. Guess it got lost in the mail. LOL
I LOVE MY BLUE EYES. I love my blue eyes because they go with every outfit and I don’t need to wear colored contacts.
I LOVE MY KINDNESS. I’m one who likes to meet new people and go up to people and say hi and welcome them. I not only enjoy meeting new people but learning about others and where they come from.
I LOVE LISTENING TO OTHERS. I like listening to others problems and giving them advice. Sometimes it’s easier because we’ve been through the same/similar situation.
I Love Me Because I’m A Christian. This may seem like a crazy answer to some people but when I asked Jesus into my heart my life totally changed for the good. I’ve been blessed many times over. Is my life easier? Not always but at least I know Jesus is there to help me.
I could go on and on about What I Love About Me but won’t because my post would be too long.
