Awards Mean That You're Popular!

Yea, I'm now in the popular group. I better go find me a jock to blow.
Did I say that out loud?

Seriously, I am honored and genuinely surprised at getting these awards for my blog and blogging prowess. Humbling. Truly humbling. No, not really, I totally deserve them.

First shout out goes to Sara at moments of exhileration. She knows talent when she can smell it. Or it may be her daughter Adeline's poopy diaper. Never the mind, she's kick ass, so check her out. I believe she's bestowed on me the Tell Me About Yourself award.

My second shout out goes to the brilliant Annie at Annie Off The Leash. She was one of my first fans and I'm grateful for her eye for spotting genius as well as her own genius. Stop reading my spew and check her out. I think she gave me these two awards. Someone call me out on my shit if I have this incorrect and I'm just giving myself awards willy nilly.
In order to be worthy of these awards I must list 7 things about myself. Here ya go.

1. I spent 12 hours in Nicaragua, because when I saw a bug the size of a small child outside my motel room, I had to flee the country.

2. I proudly display my Cher doll on my desk, although her shoes went missing decades ago,

3. I prefer eating standing up.

4. I don't like to shower unless I've worked out.

5. I have to feel the weight of a blanket, or my boyfriend, on top of me in order to fall asleep.

6. Collecting passport stamps is a badge of honor, and like these blogger awards, makes me feel important and popular.

7. I have no idea what the difference is between the old and new testaments. (Oh, yeah, my parents are proud)

And now, I'd like to share a side of me that I don't think a lot of my new readers have been exposed to. The Pilates Instructor. Here are a few posts that take you through my Pilates journey. C'mon, it'll be fun.

AND now the most important part. Awarding my fellow bloggers and sharing the love.

You definitely deserve the awards. Love your seven items and will have to read your pilates posts, but first, I have to check out the writers you selected. Bask in the glow just short of blowing a jock. (you did say that...and I guess I did too.)

Thanks Annie. They're pretty little awards.

Bella said...

Lady, first off, congratulations on your award! And secondly, thanks for the love, sister! Did you find the jock yet or should we both go out and look? bwhahaha! You crack me up! Big time! Thanks for including me in your list. I've done a couple of victory dances today but I still have energy to do one more! If you don't see me post in more than four days, it might mean I fell to the ground unconscious. Please call 911! The Significant Other and the Son will more than likely just step over me! hee hee! :)

Laura@Catharsis said...

Oh my gosh, thank you!!! Soo exciting! And also, if I saw a bug the size of a small child, I'd definitely leave the country, too.

Michael Ann said...

Congratulations and I'm happy to meet you. I'm a friend of Laura's and saw her post. She is a pretty strict teacher so I figured I'd better do my homework assignment! This was a fun one though so I didn't mind. I look forward to visiting more often!!

thegirlfriendmom said...

Bella- Glad I could make you do a dance.

Laura- thanks for being in agreement about the insects.

Michael Ann- so nice to meet you and I hope you'll keep stopping by.

Kathy said...

I've gotten some award before but I feel extra special to be awarded one from you my dear friend!! So glad I can bask in your popularity!! Not so sure I'm up to the other thing, but hey, that's life!! As always you make me laugh, and I can really use one now, so extra thanks!! Love to you, and congratulations!!

thegirlfriendmom said...

Nothing makes me happier and fills me the utmost joy than making a friend laugh or smile. I think we can all use a little extra this time of year. And the challenges continue and strengthening the spirit. Love to you.

Deanna @ The Unnatural Mother said...

Now I FEEL popular!!! Love it! Love your blog...
