Sweet Blog Award

Yay! I was given my first blogger award (The Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award) by my good writing buddy and late night facebook chatting pal Rene Nightingale.

These are the requirements for accepting the award. The most important one is that it must be passed on to others. The other rules are listed below the list of award winners I've chosen.

Thank you, Rene. *wiping face* But this needs more whipped cream, please!

Bequeathed to:
Carolina Valdez Miller
Heather Luke
Jamie Mchenry
Lia Davis
Amanda Hocking

And along with the strawberry goodness and sweet delectable whipped cream comes these original rules:

1. Thank and link to the person who nominated you.
2. Share seven random facts about yourself.
3. Pass the award along to 5 deserving blogging buddies.
4. Contact those buddies to congratulate them.

**I was nominated by Rene Nightingale!

And here are the seven random facts about me:

1. My name is Lucky without the c. It's a long story. But in short, my dad misspelled it.

2. I was born in a remote village in Bangaldesh during the 1971 liberation war against Pakistan.

3. I have a 22-yr old son in college and a 2-yr old son just getting out of diapers.

4. I have a third kid at home called my husband.

5. My favorite movie is Indecent Proposal.

6. I am 4' 11" and a half.

7. I am a model and author, and in my spare time, I'm the biggest eater of anything that has chocolate and coconut in it. :)

8. (this one is a bonus). I am only the second writer to go by the name L.A. Sherman (that I'm aware of, anyway). The first one was Lucius Adelino Sherman, one of my relatives on my hubby's side. He was born August 28, 1847 in Worcester, Massachusetts and died February 13, 1933 in Lincoln Nebraska. Believe it or not, Lucius also wrote a book for writers called How to Describe and Narrate Visually: exercises in literary composition, based on principles and examples of the writers art, which can be read for fee online at the Hathi Trust Digital Library by clicking on "Full View" after going to the above link. As a side note, the first Shermans came to the US - - to Massachusetts - - in the 1630s. And yes, I'm related to General William Tecumseh Sherman, Civil War hero; Roger Sherman, signer of the Declaration of Independance; General Sydney Sherman, the first person known to have said, "Remember the Alamo!, and Stuart P. Sherman, the famous writer and critic of Henry Louis Mencken.

And congratulations to all of the winners! One more award is coming soon! (Well, maybe not soon. I'm pretty busy). :)

  1. Thanks for the award. I'm honored. Now to think of seven things about me. Hmmm?

  2. It's tough, Jamie. I know. LOL. It took me a couple of weeks. :)

  3. Congrads to all of the winners! If I could I would have added extra cream! I don't think there could ever be enough whipped cream.

    You know that third kid at home is the one that stays forever! :)

    Also congrads on getting out of diaper duty. At first it is cute, but after a few times it becomes a pain in everyone's asses lol.
