Someone Thinks I'm Sweet

Al Diaz, better known as Father Dragon, bestowed upon me The Sweetest Blogger Award. In fact, he nearly made me cry with the kind things he said.

The truth is, Al has left quite an impression on me. I was thrilled to find his blog and surprised to discover that 'Mother Dragon' was his mother and not his wife. Father Dragon exhibits talent and wisdom far beyond that of most young men. If you don't already follow his blog, you are missing out. Truly.

Abrazos para ti, mi adorable dragon. :)


The rules of the Super Sweet Blogging Award are:
Answer the following questions and nominate five bloggers.

Questions:
1. Cookies or Cake?  
Cookies, if they're soft and gooey. 
Cake, if it's Tres Leches.

2. Chocolate or Vanilla?  
Hm... Vanilla.

3. Favorite Sweet Treat?  
Pumpkin pie tops the list. Homemade gingerbread and well-made flan tie for second.

4. When do you crave sweet things the most?  
In the evenings, after supper, or just about any time I smell coffee brewing. 
I'm southern. What can I say. *grin*

5. Sweet nickname?
*shakes head* Not tellin'.


My nominees are:


Super-sweet bloggers, each and every one.

Thanks for stopping by. :)

  10. That's an important caveat, about the "well-made" flan. If you're making it from scratch, it can turn out disappointingly eggy. Congrats on your sweet award! :-)

    1. Thanks!

      Very true. I'm surprised, just within my city, how different flan can be from one place to another.

  16. The title of your post should be changed to "Everyone thinks I'm sweet" to accurately reflect the feelings the blogworld has towards you. Congrats, you little sweetie, you.

  18. Hi Melissa,

    Such a sweet gesture by our friend, Al Diaz. Congrats to you for receiving such a wonderfully sweet award. I'm sure there are several sweet nicknames for you, Melissa :) And well done to those you bestowed the award to.

    Take care and with that, I'm outta' here.....

    Gary :)

  19. Congratulations on the award. It's really nice to feel appreciated by your blogging pals, isn't it?

    I have a feeling you just may be in the minority with that choice of vanilla over chocolate, but I'm kinda feeling in the mood for strawberry.

    1. Ha - funny you should say that. I almost answered: Strawberry. No, wait. That's not a choice. :P

      Actually, I like chocolate. It just depends on which form it comes in. Gooey chocolate syrup over ice cream or a mug of hot chocolate with marshmallows - yes. Chunks of chocolate chips that get stuck in my teeth - no. ;)

  22. Congrats on your award, Father Dragon is very sweet. He was just released from my stockade on Monday, so I don't think he's thinking very kindly about me right now. LOL.

    1. The names my dad used to call me are too silly.

      My husband calls me 'Sunshine' sometimes.
      There. Are you happy? :P
