I knew nothing about blog awards and I thought that because I was nominated I would have to compete with all the other nominees and that there would be one winner.
Fortunately, this community is much less complicated than that.
Rules for the Super Sweet Blogging Award:
- Give credit to the person who nominated you.
- Nominate a Baker's Dozen (13) other blogs.
- Post the award on your blog.
- Answer the following 5 "Super Sweet" questions:
Chocolate or Vanilla? Vanilla.
Did you know that vanilla comes from the stem of an orchid? Me either!
Try using WHOLE vanilla bean in a chocolate smoothie + ice = Total Annihilation!
What is your Favorite Sweet Treat? "Taste Tester" kisses are the ultimate sweet treat!
Almond Butter with Maple Syrup is pretty sweet too though. A perfect muffin topper, apple or banana boat dipper, celery spread, or straight off a spoon or finger.
When do you Crave sweet things the most? Late at night. Mid-afternoon can be pretty bad too.
If you had a Sweet Nickname, what would it be? Sweet Maria (like a Sweet Marie chocolate bar, only a whole lot sweeter!)
A boy in highschool used to call me "Sweet Maria". It used to annoy the heck out of me. When his hot guy friends started calling me "Sweet Maria" too, I eventully started to like my nickname. I never did like the boy though (in a "like" like sort of way). Sorry Sandi.
