and the nominees are…..


It’s been awhile since I’ve been nominated for an award.! I’m not sure if that means I’m doing something wrong.! Or something right.! hahaha 🙂 The last time I was nominated for the Liebster award, I had only written 100 posts and probably had that many blog followers. This time around, I’m on post 250 with about double the blog followers. So thank you.! Thank you.!!

And somehow, the bloggers who nominate me seem to share much in common with me. Last time around, Loca Gringa at nominated me for the award. Clearly, I was a loca gringa at some point.!! jajaja… This time around, pearlgirl90 did the honors.! I love pearls and I’m girl.!! What more is there to say. Please check out pearlgirl90’s lovely blog at

Thank you so much..!! I have received so much love and support regarding my blog.!! I never ever thought that anyone would be interested in reading one iota of my sojourn in Mexico. I thank everyone who reads, follows, and/or likes my blog and blog posts. I thank all of my friends for their support. And I thank all my friends who let me write about them and our lives in Mexico and outside.! It is truly more than a one woman blog.! I could not have done it without my friends, my fellow bloggers, and Mexico 🙂 Now to accept the award…..

11 Random Facts about me:

1. I have tattoos..! And I like tattoos on the men I date 🙂 I think they are sexy.! Though they tend to get them after we break up.!

3. I have a knack for spotting most FBI agents in the field.! No really, I do.!

5. My family thinks I killed the family pet, Cujo the newt.! But really, I don’t know what happened to him.

6. I am not good at following rules. Hence the reason, I did not create new questions for the nominated bloggers. Or nominate those with 200 or less followers. Outside the box, baby.!

7. My friends channel me in bars when rude men are hitting on them.! They always ask themselves, “What would Rose do?” And then they do what they think I would do.! hahaha….I’m not sure how I earned that reputation.!

8. I recorded an album when I was sixteen.! Ok, so it was with my high school choir, but still, there is an album out there with my picture on the cover and my voice on the vinyl.!! lol…

9. Speaking of bands, my dad used to own a hotel when I was growing up. Really cool lesser known bands from all over the states (and the world) used to stay there. I always made a point of collecting 45s and getting autographs.!!

10. I used to be a lifeguard. So yeah, I could probably save your life if you were drowning.

It depends….how good do I look….??? Do I age well…? If so yes. If no, forget about it.
