Wow! Just WOW! (For Thursday, January 28)

*Song of the day: I Won't Spend Another Night Alone by the Ataris

I feel like I need to stand at a pulpit or something, and pull out my list of names of people to thank!

"My hubby, for buying me my net-book, and reading countless vampire/werewolf (excluding the "Twilight" series) books while I type away into the wee hours of the morning, my children, for watching a lot of television and putting up with mommy's "me time" that lasts WAY longer than it's supposed to, and thank you to all my readers who don't really know me, but still suffer through my long and tedious stories about my little fingerprints on this planet, and.....the list goes on....."

For real, though, thank you to Janae at Pink Moss for this award, for your support, and for your comments! You are the best!

Maybe it's just that I'm new to the blogging world, and, in reality, I never win ANYTHING, but I feel like I've accomplished a lot. And I feel like what I am doing must mean SOMETHING to some people out there.

Seven Interesting Things About Myself:

1. I have several irrational fears. One is gray aliens. They make me cry. One is Kiwi fruits. they look like Tarantulas.
2. A fear I have, that I don't consider to be "irrational" is Mediocrity. I am afraid of just being 'ho-hum'
3. I would rather stab myself in the eye with a fork than throw up.
4. I once almost made out with the lead singer of the Ataris. I didn't because I was 'in love' ~eye roll~ (HE wouldn't have done the same for ME.) and I should have. It's my almost-claim-to-fame.
5. I have spent the last 3 years working as a model for an annual Vintage style calendar.
6.I have stood on the front steps of the place that Henry David Thoreau once lived. (Camden New Jersey is a very dangerous place, BTW.)
7. My house is now completely doused in my next blog to find out why!

As far as giving this nominating other blogs for this award, I have to freely admit that there are probably 50 I would love to present it to. Unfortunately, I may only give it away to 7 others. So the choice is hard.

1. Michelle at All Home Cooking. All Year Long because I literally sit and drool over her blog every day. Here is a domestic goddess. A woman who blows my mind with her ability to create delicious, beautiful, home cooked meals. Every Single Day.

2. Mean Mommy University because this is a woman I identify with in just about every sense of the word. I nod as I read her posts, muttering to myself "Yep! Yes! I do that too!"

3.Ciara at Milkmoon Because this blog hits that spot in my heart that craves poetry, and peace, and freedom. She has a beautiful, poetic way of blogging (not to mention, gorgeous pictures) that is just like a breath of crisp fresh air.

4.Organic Motherhood With Coolwhip because she is clever, and hilarious. I laugh out loud when I read her blog. Again, I relate to her entirely!

5.Ginny at Lemon Drop Pie Ginny has an amazing, tough, and compassionate spirit, and an exceptional life story. She has conquered much, and I admire her greatly. This is a woman who may very easily end up one of my heroes.

6. Helene at I'm Living Proof That God Has A Sense Of Humor Once again, I relate. (And I desperately want twins!)

7.Jamie at Stalling Jamie is an old friend of mine, and she is also a sensational writer. I love reading her blog because I am never sure what I am going to find. She is very funny, and has a perfect helping of sarcasm to wash it all down. She's also shown ME a lot of support and I appreciate it a lot.

How funny! Just came on over to let you know you have a couple of awards at mine:


Ciara said...

So nice to meet you! And thanks so much for the award!

Love what I've seen here on your blog. Sometimes, because we have two older ones too, who pull me in a different direction, I have to remind myself that we are also still at that stage of loveliness, the life~with~little~wonders stage, when everything is still magic and wondrous. It's so good to pause and see things through their eyes. And I hate that I have to remind myself!

But *gasps* EXcluding Twilight??? Why!!!!! :-o

Michelle said...

I'm honored. :*) Thank you!!

I'll post later...after the kiddos leave for school.

Ginny Marie said...

Oh, my goodness, I'm blushing! Thank you for the award and the kind words! You do have a beautiful blog, and I love reading your posts. Blogging is addicting, isn't it? Congrats on the award! You deserve it!

Jamie said...

Wow thanks! I'm glad someone enjoys my random ranting and pointless observations of meaningless things. :) I'm not sure I even read 7 other people's blogs... I like to keep the blog reading mostly to people I know in real life.

Ciara- LOL, I, Personally, LOVE Twilight! I've read them all. Brandon started, but it just wasn't his 'thing'- however, he has bravely and manly accompanied me and my church class of screaming 10 year old girls to the New Moon movie, and I think I've talked about it enough that I think the knows it inside out. LOL

To everyone else- good job! I look forward to your posts in the future.

Organic Motherhood with Cool Whip said...

Thank you so much for the award! You are too sweet. The things you said about my blog are so nice. I really appreciate the support! And as you know, I think your blog is beautiful, hilarious, and magnificent!!! Congratulations on your award--you are AWESOME!! XOXOXOXXOXOX

PS That's funny that you think kiwi are scary. I'm afraid of papaya. Maybe we were separated at birth?

Camryn said...

Wahoo! Thank you, thank you!
I'm blushing--I'm so excited! Thanks for making my day! I'm grabbing your linky button too and posting it on my blog. Thanks girl! And after reading through your stuff--yes, we are alike!
(And I type into the wee hours of morning--"mommy time" is crucial--or else someone is gonna get hurt!)

Camryn said...

Oops. I thought I would let you know that I'm having a slight problem with your button. It's not linking back to your site. I don't see a web address on it...
It can be so tricky! If you need help, feel free to email me.

I'm NOT a VOLCANO! said...

Camryn- It is working for me- I'm not sure what's wrong. Did you copy the ENTIRE html?? Let me know if it's still giving you problems.

Helene said...

Thank put a smile on my face!!!
