Do you have any idea how blessed I feel to have so many wonderful new friends? SUPER DUPER BLESSED! (Oh, good grief, I sound like such a nerd. I must confess, I am one.)

From the bottom of my heart, these lovely awards mean so very much to me. That you guys would take the time to include me just gives me the warm fuzzies. I appreciate you all so very, very much!!!

One thing you guys probably know about me is that I’m terrible at following the rules. So, this post might not meet all of the requirements, but here they are for those that I’m sending the awards to:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you and include a link to their site.
  2. Nominate other people (you choose how many–whatever makes you happy.)
  3. Write some bad ass things about yourself.

I think those are all the rules and I probably screwed them up, but here goes!

Just so ya know, I nominate all kinds of people. Sometimes, I even disagree with what they have to say. But that is the great thing about blogging is that everyone has a voice. I simply love that!! πŸ™‚

Here are the amazing blessings given to me in the last couple of days by some seriously incredible people who you should immediately follow and love like I do:

The Sunshine Blogger Award, by Drawing Room Days and Getting Naked Behind the Wall and SwittersB & Fly Fishing and TimZautoΒ Β  (HOLY SHIT! You guys are making me blush!)

I would like to nominate these kick ass peeps:

The Versatile Blogger Award, by Photography + Science = Chanel

Yep, you guys are getting nominated too:

  1. All Things Boys
  2. The Brabble Rabble
  3. Simply Eclectic

The Kreative Blogger Award, by shreyandpixlar


The Reader Appreciation Award, by kyllingsara

Nope, you can’t escape me either:

  1. amateuraficionado
  2. Love and Lunchmeat
  3. Memoirs of an Evil Stepmom

All of these awards mean so very much to me. I really cannot express my gratitude to all of you for being so kind. I hope that all of you stop by and follow their blogs as you will find some incredible people there with great stories and much to share.

Since I always let it all hang out anyway, none of this stuff will likely surprise you, but I stole 10 questions from Getting Naked Behind the Wall‘s award blog and thought I’d spill my guts with these. Here goes!

  1. What is a favorite childhood memory? Well, if you read my recent post about drinking out of and bathing with my mom’s old douche bag, you already know my favorite (horrible!) childhood memory!
  2. What is a real fear you have? Falling and either breaking all of my teeth or landing on something with my eye. EWWWWW!!!!
  3. How would you describe yourself?Β Happy. In love. Content. Kind. Occasionally funny. A doofus.
  4. What Countries have you lived in? USA
  5. What is your style?Β Jammie pants and tank tops.
  6. What is your favorite breakfast food?Β How much time to you have? Chocolate chip pancakes. BACON! A good omelet. HASHBROWNS!! BACON! Oh, already said that one.
  7. What are some of your hobbies?Β Reading, writing books, photography, playing with teddy bears and furries (I know…I know…) hanging out with the hubby.
  8. If you could tell people anything, what would be the most important thing to say?Β I have a few here, so get comfortable!
    1. Don’t worry about 5 or 10 extra pounds. When you die will people say, “Wow, their death would be so sad if only they’d been 8 pounds thinner.” ??? No. Then don’t let those couple of pounds ruin enjoying your life.
    2. Being judgmental sucks. So quit it if you are. Allowing people to be who they are is freeing to both them AND you.
    3. Learn how to say, “No.” Best 2 letter word on earth.
  9. What is one of your passions?Β Helping people find greater love in their relationships.
  10. What is the one truth you have learned?Β I will always play with teddy bears. No matter my age. πŸ˜‰

Thank you again, so very, very much for the amazing awards. My heart is officially warmed!!! Love you guys!!!


              • He plays on a PC. We have a PS3, but since it hooks up to the flat screen and that is MINE!!! when he plays video games, he’s taken to the PC. πŸ˜‰ Ahhh…the compromises of marriage. πŸ˜‰


              • You have a great compromise with that. I have an XBOX that I play on. Can’t afford a PS3 along with that, and I have been thinking about getting a gamer grade PC as I have a laptop at the moment and that won’t run it much.


              • Yeah, our little arrangement works out beautifully. We get to cuddle while I watch TV on the big screen and he plays video games with his big monitor on the coffee table.

                If you are thinking about getting a gamer grade PC, the ASUS G7, 12 gigs of RAM is great. That’s what I have and this friggin’ computer is amazing. πŸ™‚ I don’t game on it. I use it for video production, but it’s a Gamer’s PC, no doubt. It’s got a crazy high yummy video card and all that other stuff that gamers need. The only 2 things that drive me crazy on this machine is that the tap pad for the mouse is so big that I had to turn off its “click” capability because I was constantly accidentally touching it an my mouse would jump all over the screen. Also, your really have to press the keys hard–this is no soft touch keyboard. One of these days I’ll get used to it, but it drives me insane sometimes. Other than those two things, it completely rules!!!


    • Hi Sheri!!! I’m so happy you like their blogs too! They are all such great people. I am truly blessed to have met everyone, including you!, on WordPress. It’s like having a wonderful extended family. πŸ™‚


  1. scared the hell outta me. Open my e-mail box and first things I see is …


    Thought my ex-wife was back in town

    Congrats BtW .. worth the near coronary to read such good news πŸ™‚


  2. Wow! You nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award?!?! I was SHOCKED to see my blog listed, and TOTALLY excited…even though I’m so new at this that I don’t even really know what it means or how it works (haha). At any rate, I’m so honored for the shout out. Thank you SO much. I enjoy your blog a great deal, you remind me a lot of my sassy self. πŸ˜‰


    • Hi there, Hilary!!! It was absolutely my pleasure nominating you!! πŸ™‚ I’m glad you saw the nomination as I totally forgot to let people know. I’m such a doofus!! I love making new friends on WP and it’s great when I can pass along a great blog to others–hence the nod to you!

      Thanks for the kind word about my blog! You are too sweet. As for the nomination—the wording is weird and confused the hell outta me when I got my first award. To be nominated is to win! So just do what I did in my post–nominate others, write a few things about yourself–and you are good to go. πŸ™‚

      Have a great weekend, award winner!! πŸ™‚


  3. I don’t mind you throwing them my way! I love it, and it gves me the warm fuzzies, too (as well as “If I Had A Hammer” stuck in my head). I am honored that you think of me! I always enjoy reading your posts, and have now adopted “no mixey-mixey” into my regular language. : )


    • You so rule!!! “No Mixey Mixey” is one of my favorite things to joke about with the hubby. He always looks at me like I have the brain of a 3 year old. πŸ˜‰ He’s not too far off.

      I love your blog and so you are VERY deserving of the award, my dear. πŸ™‚ As always, big hug to you!! πŸ™‚ XOXO


  4. You deserve every single award! Awards are cool – and so are fezes (is that the plural form of “fez”?). Awards make me feel warm and tingly inside. Makes me feel appreciated. I have decided to take a break from heavy thinking this weekend and go and see Promethius. πŸ™‚ Hope you have a lovely weekend as well. ♥


  5. I wish you many more awards here – because your reaction to them is brilliant and makes me laugh every time. I guess I’ll just have to find one you don’t yet have and throw it at you.


    • Thank you, Jessica! Glad you liked my #8. Took MANY years to get there! πŸ˜‰ Oooohhhh…almond butter bacon cookies? Good Lord…I’m salivating just thinking about it! I will head right over and check out the recipe. Yummy!!! Bacon in coleslaw? Really, how can one ever go wrong with bacon?? πŸ™‚ I think a bacon category would RULE!!!! πŸ™‚


  6. Congrats. BTW, last year, Kristen and I went on a trip up the Blue Ridge Parkway. While in Asheville, NC, we found a really nice chocolate shop. They had different gourmet chocolate bars and one of them had bacon. We were so tempted to try it, but went with the sea salt and burnt sugar bar instead.
