Here's to being Kreativ

May 14, 2012

The lovely Melissa of A Wide Line recently surprised me with The Kreativ Blogger Award.

So first, a big Thank You to Melissa for thinking of me. As always, I appreciate the vote of confidence and the shout out. It’s a great thing when our fellow bloggers nominate us and let us know we are special to them in a way.

The rules, those pesky rules, are pretty simple for this one…

1. Thank the person who gave the award to you and link back to their blog.

2. Share 7 things about yourself.

3. Nominate 7 bloggers and let them know they’ve been awarded.

Here are 7 more things about me:

1. I love, love, love Vietnamese food, especially a soup called Pho! It’s the best.

2. I had chicken Pho instead of my usual beef today. OMGeee, it was delightful.

3. I don’t like that my hubby keeps the air at 68° at night. I’m sitting here in a thick robe and socks… and I live in Florida for Pete’s sake.

4. Sometimes, when I’m in a chocolaty mood I put Nutella on a teaspoon and eat it like that.

5. I decided to bake Apfelstrudel for middle daughters Family Festival at school. Thank goodness my mom is a champ at making strudel… she’ll give me pointers.

6. The next book I am going to read is in German. One of my best friends send it to me recently. Just because.

7. A few of my school friends from Germany live in the US now, too. It’s a small world.  🙂

Time to nominate 7 fabulous bloggers:

1. Marcie at Too Timid and Squeamish

2. Catrina at Kittyb78

3. Megan at Monday Morning Musings

4. Jackie at Not Wifezilla

5. Stacey at Real World Mom

6. Alexis at The Exhausted Mom

7. Shannon at Moments of Introspection

As always, no pressure, just a head nod from me to you because I like you. 🙂

    Wow! Thank you. I’ve already been nominated once, so this is a double shock and awe. Thanks so much.

    • Susi May 15, 2012 at 9:52 pm

      You’re welcome. Sorry for the double whammy. But I always like to say the more the merrier!!! 🙂

    I also love Vietnamese food!!!!

    • Susi May 15, 2012 at 9:51 pm

      It’s delicious. I love the flavors.

  • Marcy May 15, 2012 at 5:31 am

    Thanks so much! I love Pho too. And I hate that I have to wear a sweater when the air conditioner is on in the summer. 🙂

    • Susi May 15, 2012 at 9:50 pm

      I know what you mean. You come in from the outside and are sweating bullets and inside it feels like an icicle.

  • Hilary May 15, 2012 at 7:33 am

    I have never had Vietnamese food, but really want to try it

    • Sweetheart May 15, 2012 at 8:08 am

      I’ve been trying to convince Marc to go when you guys are here, but he wooses out every time…

      • Susi May 15, 2012 at 9:48 pm

        We’ll just have to drive them there and not tell Mark!!! 🙂

    • Susi May 15, 2012 at 9:49 pm

      It’s the best Hilary. I’m so in love with it. I could eat Pho each and every day.

  • Stacey at RealWorldMom May 15, 2012 at 10:18 am

    Thank you so much! You’ve made my day! Hugs!

    • Susi May 15, 2012 at 9:47 pm

      You’re welcome. Glad to make you smile. 🙂

  • Megan@MondayMorningMusings May 15, 2012 at 12:11 pm

    When I was younger, I wanted to learn German so I could read Nietzsche in his original language. I learned how to count till 12 (and how to say “blood” in German to order a rare steak) but that’s about it. You are so lucky!

    Thank you for the award. The best compliments are the ones you receive from your peers 🙂

    • Susi May 15, 2012 at 9:46 pm

      I never even read Nietzsche. At least I don’t think so. But I can only imagine how hard it would be for a non native speaker. And you are welcome.

  • Rebecca May 15, 2012 at 2:11 pm

    I like it cold, too. 68 is probably too warm for me! LOL

    Do you find that reading or speaking German is more difficult now that you live in the US? Or is it just as easy to switch one to the other?

    Have a great week.

    • Susi May 15, 2012 at 9:45 pm

      Reading German doesn’t bother me too much. I do have trouble remembering words sometimes and slip back into English. Writing is a bit of an issue… that’s why I started a German blog to kinda keep it fresh! 🙂

  • Rach (DonutsMama) May 15, 2012 at 4:08 pm

    I could eat Nutella straight from the jar. Oh wait, I used to do that in college!

    • Susi May 15, 2012 at 9:43 pm

      It’s the best. I was so happy that we were able to buy it here after moving from Germany.

  • Kerry May 15, 2012 at 6:52 pm

    Congrats Susi!! It doesn’t surprise me that you have received another award, you’re a sweet friend/blogger 🙂
    I still have yet to post about the lovely award you gave me last week, I haven’t forgotten!
    Have a beautiful day and I totally think you and I could sit and eat Nutella off a spoon and chat for hours!!

    • Susi May 15, 2012 at 9:43 pm

      You are so sweet. I would love to sit and eat Nutella from the jar. I’m sure I would enjoy just listening to you with your lovely Australian accent!!! 🙂

  • Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell May 15, 2012 at 7:01 pm

    Your apple strudel is sure to be divine and a huge hit! I envy you the ability to read books in two different languages!

    • Susi May 15, 2012 at 9:41 pm

      I hope so. It will end up on on my Baking link up eventually… if I don’t screw it up.

  • Karen May 15, 2012 at 7:15 pm

    Oh, my husband and I have the battle of the air conditioner, too. Fortunately lately we’ve been on the same page, but I’m usually in my sweat shirt and pants in the evening. I feel you there!

    • Susi May 15, 2012 at 9:41 pm

      During the day it’s fine and once I’m under the covers I prefer it a little cooler. We all sleep better. But trying to relax and read at night… I always need fluffy slippers and a sweater.

  • RoryBore May 15, 2012 at 11:17 pm

    never tried Vietnamese – but I do love Thai food. don’t know if they are at all similar.
    But Nutella..yes, that I could go for.
    And right now – Hubby has the air on so he can sleep upstairs in coolness, but I am blogging downstairs with the fire on!! sorry planet 🙁

    • Susi May 16, 2012 at 7:13 am

      Thanks, Leslie. Thai food is more peanuty I think. Vietnamese is very fresh and the flavors are amazing… lots of cilantro, spices.
