“Of course awards matter.” ~Frank Ocean


I was honored and surprised on Friday when I got a notification from Claire Tomelty, a fellow amazing blogger, that she nominated me for the Liebster Award.

Most of you probably already know the rules to this award, but in case you don’t, here they are:

1. Thank the blogger who nominated you for the Liebster Award, and link back to his or her blog.

2. Answer the 11 questions that your nominator asks you.

3. Post 11 random facts about yourself.

4. Nominate 11 bloggers of your own, with under 200 followers, whom you think are as awesome as you.

5. Create 11 questions for your nominees.

6. And finally… Display the Liebster Award logo on your page.

To start with, I’ll answer Claire’s questions.

1. Is gluttony a real sin? Yes. Why? Because when I’m gluttonous, everything else goes out the window. I turn into a lazy, fat cow. Maybe if I loaded myself up on fruits and vegetables (ugh – as if!), it wouldn’t be so bad. But I don’t binge on those things. Nope – I stuff my face with things like french fries and brownies and bacon. Mmm, bacon…

2. What is your favourite character trait in another person? Honesty, by far. I don’t care how good looking and funny you are if you’re a liar. And what really gets my goat is people who lie about stupid things that nobody cares about to begin with. Grrr.

3. When you think about dying how do you feel? I don’t know really… I’m not scared of dying (I don’t think) since we all will at some time or another. Now with that being said, I’d rather not die some horrible, painful death, either. And I’d prefer not to die while my kids are still young and depend on me fully.

4. What makes you supremely happy? My kids and family. And Starbucks Hazelnut Frappuccinos.

5. Which fragrances stir up memories for you? I can’t pinpoint the actual smell, but there is one fragrance that I smell every once in a while that takes me back to the exact table I sat at in my elementary school cafeteria. And that, of course, makes me think of third grade and Greg Panagiotopoulos. He was my boyfriend even though he didn’t know it we were only eight. I wonder what ever happened to him. Hmm…

6. What colour best describes your personality? Purple. I have a deep need for emotional security and to create order and perfection in all areas of my life. I also have a deep need to help others. You can check your personality color here. It’s pretty darn accurate.

7. What is the most reckless thing you’ve ever done? Aye – I hate to even think back to my most reckless [translate: “stupidest”] moment because I can’t believe I was ever that dumb. Way back before I was old enough to drive, my sister and I used to walk the 1½ miles from our house to the beach, while our parents were at work. One day on our way back some older guys, who looked like they could have been in college, stopped and asked us if we wanted a ride so that we didn’t have to walk back. Like idiots, we accepted the ride. Thankfully, they actually took us home – well to the clubhouse in our neighborhood because I wouldn’t show them exactly where we lived. Yes, I now understand that we would have been killed, raped, stabbed, or any combination of the above. Yes, I also now understand that our decision was moronic. No, I will never do that again.

8. Have you ever broken any hearts? Yes, sadly. But not on purpose. Believe it or not, I haven’t always been such a cold-hearted bitch. I actually used to be a huge people-pleaser, and I have always hated saying no. So this guy back in high school really liked me, and I wasn’t attracted to him at all, but I didn’t want to hurt his feelings, so I never really told him to back off. I guess now I realize that I sort of strung him along by not just telling him that I wasn’t interested. When he started buying me jewelry for my birthday, I knew I had to finally do it, and I “broke up” with him even though we were never really dating. Awkward, I know. Needless to say, he was heartbroken, and I felt like a complete witch.

9. What is your karaoke song? I don’t sing much karaoke, but I do love Rock Band, and my favorite song to sing to while Gerald plays the drums, Ronald plays the keyboard, and my brother-in-law plays the guitar is Free Bird. I mean, who doesn’t love singing that song?!

10. Which fictional character would you most like to have drinks with? Atticus Finch, from To Kill a Mockingbird. He is far more moral, upstanding, and non-judgmental than most real-life people I’ve met. We all have a lot to learn from him.

11. Do you enjoy your own company? Ha ha – yes! You should hear all the conversations going on in my head at any given time! It’s like I’m having a party in there!

Now, for my 11 random facts about myself…

1. I have an oral fixation. [Get your mind out of the gutters, pervs.] I always need something in my mouth… ice, gum, candy, something. I’m not sure why, but it’s just one of those weird quirks. Come on, you know you have one, too…

2. I don’t like pizza. If I have to eat it (because I don’t feel like cooking), I prefer thin crust with black olives and green peppers. Those at least help mask the taste of all that cheese.

3. I’m a Conservative. I’ll stop there, so as not to get on my soapbox. (Chillax – don’t be so sensitive…)

4. I love the smell of rain.

5. I also love the sound of rain. Usually. After three months of nearly non-stop rain, however, I am beginning to enjoy the sound of no rain.

6. I love the dentist. There’s nothing like that feeling right after you’ve had your teeth cleaned.

7. I’m grumpy today because I didn’t get nearly enough sleep last night. And it’s Monday. And it’s a full week.

8. I hate orange foods… oranges, sweet potatoes, orange juice, carrots… Yuck!

9. I still watch Full House nearly every night. What?! Don’t judge…

10. I love to cook. But as you already know, my OCD forces me to follow recipes to a T; therefore, I don’t experiment very often.

11. I love cop and prison shows like Cops, America’s Most Wanted, Scared Straight, Lockup, etc.

Here are my 11 nominees for the Liebster Award.

1. RoxyUncut – She’s a motivational speaker and loves people. That means she is, by far, a better person than I’ll ever be!

2. The Leaking Boob – She, like me, was crazy enough to think that she could single-handedly change the world by becoming an attorney. Only she had the balls enough to do it! She’s my hero.

3. Sarah’s Life and Thoughts – She writes thrillers – my favorite!! And she, too, has OCD, can be impatient, and moody. She’s right up my alley!

4. Beauty And Fashion Scribbles – She understands girly things, like fashion, that I never will.

5. E’s Blog – I like that he writes about controversial issues and isn’t afraid to voice his opinions about said issues. That’s what blogging is all about, right? Free speech?

6. SandStorm Click – We both love photography, and I admire anyone who appreciates the beauty in photos the way I do.

7. mummy flying solo – She’s a single mom, which makes her awesome, and she’s now published because she won a writing competition! Go MFS!

8. Valley Girl Gone Country – We have a several things in common… a southern gent, four kids, a crazy ex, and a love of blogging.

9. msCandaceMarie – She’s got an adorable five-month-old son, and I love reading all about her adventures in mommyhood!

10. sassypanties – I love reading her blog, as she never fails to make me laugh. She has a pre-teen and a teenager, like I do, so she fully appreciates any second away from them, too!

11. Little Bits & Pieces of Life – As the mom of two boys, she can appreciate the organized chaos that can control one’s life! She’s also creative, which is a trait that I can only ever dream of possessing!

And finally, here are my 11 questions to my awesome nominees:

1. Favorite TV show?

2. Why do you blog?

3. Pinterest: Brilliant or Nightmare?

4. Best place you’ve ever visited?

5. How do you like your potatoes?

6. Favorite chicken nugget dipping sauce?

7. Song with great lyrics, but a terrible beat?

8. Do aliens exist?

“I’ve won many awards and I want more. If you want to call it hunger, then I’m hungry for awards.” ~Shahrukh Khan


Shine On Award

Shine On Award

Yep, that’s right.  I’m the proud winner of another award.  [Patting myself on the back.]  I’m not trying to be arrogant about it, but I’ve already told you that I base my entire self-worth on the number of awards I’ve won and my stats.  My stats aren’t too hot; therefore, this award is what’s keeping me from sinking into a deep despairing pity party for myself.  Okay, I’m exaggerating a little bit.  But anyway, this one came from one of my very favorite bloggers, Danielle, from TheLifeandTimesofaMom.  She nominated me for the Shine On Award.  It certainly can’t be because I’m always such a bright ray of sunshine, but I’ll happily accept it anyway!

Here are the rules:

1. Display the award logo on your blog page.

2. Link back to the awesome person who nominated you.

3. Tell seven things about yourself.

4. Nominate 15 other bloggers who are deserving of this award.

Okay, I’ve gotten the easy ones out of the way.  Now for the hard part – seven things about myself that you guys don’t already know.

1. My favorite ice cream is Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Monkey.  I loooove banana ice cream.  Other than that, I’m not really a big ice cream fan.  Except chocolate soft serve.  I love that.

2. I have a massive celebrity crush on Nick Lachey.  If it wasn’t for that gorgeous witch Vanessa, I’d totally have a chance.  [Think Dumb & Dumber here…]

3. I’m very anxiously awaiting the start of the next season of Sons of Anarchy.  It’s my new favorite show.  I remember swearing it wouldn’t be my thing, but now I’m completely hooked.  I can’t wait to watch Tara plot her revenge against Gemma…

4. Unlike most women, I don’t collect purses.  Instead, I collect bathing suits.  I don’t know what it is I love about them, but I could probably wear a different one each day for an entire month.  Regardless of how many I have, though, I still have one favorite… (and yes – those are rhinestones people!)

5. My favorite food – besides bacon, of course – is potatoes.  Except sweet potatoes.  Those are disgusting.  What’s even better than potatoes and bacon?  Potatoes WITH bacon.  Yummmm.

6. If I could go anywhere in the world, I would go to Africa.  It’s #1 on my bucket list.

7. I love puzzles and mind games.  Regular puzzles, crossword puzzles, logic puzzles, number puzzles… Anything that gets my brain working overtime.  One of my favorites is Shut the Box.  Warning: It’s addictive.

And now… My 15 nominees – I’m trying to not pick the same people that Arden and Danielle picked:

1. E’s Blog – Every new blogger should start off with an award.  It’s quite a boost of confidence.

2. TalktoDiana – She’s thoughtful, giving, and selfless.  And she likes quotes as much as I do!

3. The Jogging Dad – He lives in Sydney; he’s a runner; he’s a dad… what’s not to love?!

4. Cowboys and Crossbones – She’s the most fun-loving, easy-going person I’ve never met, and I’d love to hang out with her for a weekend.

5. Cordelia’s Road Trip – Every single post she writes has me laughing.  Seriously.  Read them.

6. this is lemonade – She is wise enough to know that when life is pummeling you with lemons and is pouring on your parade, you make lemonade and march on.  She’s an inspiration to me.

7. bwthoughts – He’s humble, has defeated cancer, and has a great attitude.  He’s a fighter.  I love fighters.  Oh yeah… one more thing – He’s going out to buy a purple shirt!!!

8. Jennifer’s Journal – She’s the proud mom of a successful, beautiful girl, whom she had when she was only 18.  (I can relate to how hard that is.)  She’s a great writer and photographer.

9. HeySugarSugar – I love her randomness.  She writes like I think.  And she says what’s on her mind, which you all know, I can appreciate.

10. Dadicus Grinch – Dadicus has been married for 12 years.  That makes him my hero!  Also he wears parachute pants, which definitely makes him awesome!  😉

11. Mollytopia – Seriously, y’all… she’s my long-lost twin.

12. Getting it Together – She like me, has a goal each day of just making it out alive!  Her adventures in raising little strippers are quite hilarious!

13. suzie81’s blog – I love her honesty and transparency.  For example, see this post.

14. Breathing Space – I love her blog because she’s an amazing writer.  I’m pretty sure she’ll break the rules to this award, but definitely make sure you check out her page!  😉

15. The Happsters – Their whole point is to bring people happiness!  I love that!

Thank you again, Danielle, for this awesome award!!

I’m so thankful to frustratedreader for nominating me for the Liebster Award because now I don’t have to think of something to blog about today.

This award is given to bloggers with less than 200 followers, who then share their favorite bloggers with their viewers.  Unfortunately, I still have less than 200 followers, but maybe by the next time someone wants to nominate me, they won’t be able to because I’ll be way over 200 by that point.  Yeah.  That sounds about right.

The rules for this award are:

1. Thank the blogger who nominated you for the Liebster Award, and link back to his or her blog.

2. Answer the 11 questions that your nominator asks you.

3. Post 11 random facts about yourself.

4. Nominate 11 bloggers of your own, with under 200 followers, whom you think are as awesome as you.

5. Create 11 questions for your nominees.

6. And finally… Display the Liebster Award logo on your page.

I’ll start with my answers to “Fusterated’s” questions.  (I love this happy accident, by the way.)

1. On a scale of 1-10 (10 being the highest) how much do you enjoy blogging?  Ten, without a doubt.  Blogging is better therapy than anything I know of.  And it’s introduced me to other amazingly abnormal people who are much like myself.

2. How do you choose which blogs to follow?  I always look to see who my favorite bloggers are following.  Their taste in bloggers is pretty impressive.  I also read other bloggers’ comments – they tell me a lot about their personalities.

3. Do you prefer green or blue in general?  Blue.  It’s actually one of my favorite colors.

4. Do you believe in soul mates, why or why not?  I don’t.  Every time I think I’ve met him, I’m proven horribly wrong.  As I’ve shared before, it amazes that a person as intelligent as myself can have such bad judgment!

5. If you could travel anywhere, all expenses paid, where would you go and why?  To St. Croix.  Who ever said Disney was the greatest place on Earth?

6. Would you rather live by a body of water or on the Plains?  WATER!!!  I’m a beach bum and could never live anywhere that’s not near the beach.  Be jealous, Don.  Be very jealous.

7. Why did you choose WordPress?  Haha.  It was the first blogging site that popped up in my Google search.  I knew NOTHING about blogging.  Nothing.  I’m glad The Google did, though.

8. Are there aliens?  Yes.  And they steal socks from my dryer.

9. Do you believe in a higher power?  I do.  I’m a very unapologetic Christian.

10. Do you expect to blog for the rest of your life or is it until you get super burned out?  I plan to blog until my smart phone becomes smarter than I am, and I can no longer figure out how to use it.  I can’t imagine ever getting burned out.  If I stop blogging, I’m likely to kill someone…

Now it’s time for 11 random facts about myself.  You all already know I’m kind of crazy, so I’ll skip that one.

1. I’m addicted to those ridiculous ghost story shows.  They’re like a train wreck that I can’t look away from.

2. When someone adds me as a Facebook friend, I stalk them look through all of their photo albums.  Just to make sure I know who I’m becoming friends with, of course.

3. I hate peanut butter.  But Nutella is an entirely different story.

4. I can’t whistle.  Not even a little.  It just sounds like I’m trying to blow out birthday candles.

5. I love love love long-sleeved t-shirts.

6. I played the trumpet in middle school.  (No band nerd jokes allowed…)

7. I ran track in high school.  (Thus, the reason I now have amazing legs.  Just saying.)

8. You make me feel like I’ve been locked out of heaven.

9. My favorite TV show is Sons of Anarchy.  And Jax is my boyfriend.

10. I love graphic novels.  (They’re not comic books, you a**hole!)

11. I will only drive a Ford.

My nominees for the Liebster Award:

1. The Girl Who Blogs – I love everything about Kaela.  Seriously, there’s not a post she’s written that I haven’t loved.

2. RePrEsSeD ExPrEsSiOnS – She’s always so positive, and I love that she takes the time to recommend her favorite bloggers based on your interests.

3. journey FULL OF LIFE – Little Braxton is a miracle, and Vanessa does an amazing job parenting a child with special needs.  She’s an inspiration to all parents.

4. Dad, it’s OK! – I can’t wait to watch as his little family grows and to hear all about his upcoming adventures and changes.  The only thing I don’t like is the fact that he’s a Puppy Dawg fan.  Arden, I bet you love him already!

5. Andrea’s Metamorphercise – She runs and runs and runs some more.  It’s amazes me.

6. bringing words to life – He’s a self-published poet.  I couldn’t write poetry if I tried.  He was also in the Royal Navy.  That’s pretty badass.

7. Fierce but Cute – Dog pictures… what’s not to love?

8. hippie cahier – She’s a former English teacher, so that automatically makes her cool.  She’s also reached the point in her life that she’s not a raging ball of irritation like I am.  I hope I can reach that point some day.

9. Koke’s Journal – Filet mignon and brownies?  Yes, please.

10. Life Happens – Her favorite food is watermelon.  Mine too.  Yu-uu-umy!!!

11. The She Chronicles – She’s brutally transparent.  I love that.

And now, for your questions:

1. What’s your favorite animal?

2. What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done?

3. Favorite song lyrics?

4. What’s your favorite game show of all time?

5. East coast or West coast?

6. What’s your favorite website?

7. Thunderstorms: love them or hate them?

8. Do you remember your dreams?

9. What was your first car?

10. How do you like your eggs?

11. What are you scared of?

Thank you again, frustratedreader.  You’re the best!

“You don’t want to be flattered and become big-headed by getting awards. But, well, I am.” ~Johnny Vegas


Dang it, don of all trades… Why’d you have to go and do something nice like nominating me for the Liebster Award?  While I love recognition (who doesn’t???), I don’t love having to do all the work that comes with it.  Kidding… relax.  I’m not an ungrateful witch all the time.  Seriously though, I’m honored that a blogger like myself, with a sad, sad stats page, has been noticed by ‘The Man.’  (That’s how ardenrr and I refer to you, by the way.  You’re our dookie fresh blog hero.)  So, without stalling any further so I don’t have to keep working on this difficult blog, I thank you!!!

Okay peeps, here are the rules to this award that recognizes new bloggers (with less than 200 followers) who may perhaps be as obsessed with their stats as I.  Whoa!  Wait a minute!  What the heck??  Way to remind me of the fact that I still have less than 200 followers.  Hmphh.

Okay, wait – my insecurities are getting me sidetracked.  Where was I?  Oh yeah.  The rules.  Here they are:

1.  Thank the blogger who nominated you for the Liebster Award, and link back to their blog.  Don’t harass her and give her a hard time like I did to my nominator.

2.  Answer the 11 questions that your nominator asks you.

3.  Post 11 facts about yourself.  Now you’re beginning to see why my thankfulness over this whole nomination business was a little iffy, right?

4.  Nominate 11 bloggers of your own whom you think deserve to be put through the same torture that you’re in right now.  Remember – their number of followers has to be nearly as pathetic as yours.  Comment on their blogs so they know they’re the chosen ones.

5.  Create 11 questions for your nominees.

6.  And finally… a simple rule: Display the Liebster Award logo on your page.

I’ll start with my answers to ‘The Man’s’ questions.

1.  If you could introduce your husband or boyfriend to someone and had to tell his occupation during the introduction, what would you want that occupation to be?  The Tootsie Pop mascot.  (Give it a few minutes… you’ll get it.)

2.  Pancakes or waffles?  Waffles, hands down.  With blueberries and pecans, please.

3.  Favorite professional sports team?  The Gamecocks, of course.  But if they don’t count as professional, then J-E-T-S JETS JETS JETS!!!

Party Like a Cockstar!!!

4.  City in the USA not named New York, Boston, LA, Dallas, Chicago or Miami that you’d like to visit?  D.C. – Believe it or not, I’ve never been there.  (Don’t judge me.)

5.  Vacation time!  Where do you go if it can be anywhere?  St. Croix.  My favorite place on Earth.  [Sigh… I wish I was there right now…]

6.  If you could…if Jesus insisted that you murder one person, who would it be (I’m excluded please) – Well, murder is such a strong word.  Let’s use “whack” instead.  There are two people in front of Ex #1, but for fear of massive amounts of hate mail, I’ll keep those two to myself.  (Hint: One is a douche bag’s politician’s wife, and the other is a crybaby quarterback.  I strongly, strongly dislike both.)  I also want to whack all the people who do these things [link to pet peeve blog].

7.  What’s a regret you have that sometimes eats at you?  That I didn’t go to law school right out of college.  I told myself that I didn’t want to miss the boys’ football and baseball games and stuff like that, and I promised myself I’d go eventually.  Well, you know how that goes… I’m freakin’ 31 now [gasp], and the longer I wait, the harder it is to talk myself into taking the LSAT.  I guess for now I’ll just keep doing all the work while the attorneys make all the money.  :/

8.  You can change one thing about your husband/boyfriend.  What is that thing?  Hmm… In light of question #7 above, I’ll just stick with the safe answer and say that I would change the fact that he’s a Gay-dor fan.  (Go Gamecocks!!!)

9.  When’s the last time you were drunk?  Sadly, I don’t have much of a social life, and my life’s not quite so pathetic that I feel the need to drink alone.  So really?  I can’t remember.  [smh…]

Source: someecards

Source: someecards

10.  What would you do for a Klondike bar?  Don’t get too excited… I wouldn’t do much.  Not a big fan.

11.  Best thing you’ve ever eaten?  Wow.  This is tough.  Probably the shrimp and grits from Bubba’s Love Shak.  But I ***love*** food, so I love a lot of what goes in my mouth.  [Go ahead… Get it out of your system, perv.]  And no…In case you’re wondering – I’m not fat.  Or even slightly overweight.  So there.

Whew!  Now that that’s over with, I can think of 11 ways to try to make you like me.

1.  I have terrible judgment.  To be so damn smart, I apparently can’t make a wise life decision if it kills me.  Go figure…

Source: someecards

Source: someecards

I’ll be the QUEEN of experience at this rate…

— Oops.  I’m supposed to be trying to make you like me.  Fail. —

2.  I sleep naked.  Seriously.  I hate waking up with my pants all bunched up around my thighs and those weird creases all over me from my pjs.

3.  I’ve only flown twice.  Once to Buffalo and once to St. Croix.  How pathetic.  (But I loved it and wish I could fly everywhere.)

4.  I love amusement parks.  I’m like a big kid when I’m around roller coasters and funnel cakes!

5.  I really really REALLY want a boob job.  Badly.

Holy crap, am I really only on #5?  Ugh…

6.  I love all things football.  I yell at the TV during games, I jump up and down, and I love to talk trash to Cowgirl and Clemsux fans.

7.  Sometimes, when I get nervous, I stick my hands under my armpits and then I smell them…

8.  I love BINGO.  Sometimes I take my Grandma to go play just so I can use her as an excuse for my obsession.

9.  I put both socks on first, and then I put my shoes on.  And I tie my shoes with two bunny ears and not that stupid loop-around thingy.

10.  I’m left-handed.  That automatically makes me cool. And smart.  And funny.  And talented.

So, what do you think?  Do you love me now?

Now, for the moment you’ve all been waiting for… (drum roll, please…)  My 11 nominees for the Liebster Award are —

1.  “Normal” is the New Boring – We have a ton of stuff in common – She loves her son, Bob Marley, photography, southern cooking, caffeine, and reality TV.  It sounds like she could be my long-lost twin!  AND… she’s a great mommy! 🙂

2.  Just Another Canadian Gurl – She’s a fighter, and when life knocks her down, she punches it in the face, gets back up, and keeps on truckin’.  And best of all, she actually used the phrase “killer vajajay” in one of her posts.  That, folks, deserves an award!

3.  My Fair Diary – She gives life lessons.  I need life lessons.

4.  Vintage45s Blog – Who doesn’t love old movies and music?

5.  The Cutter Rambles – He almost fought a goose once, he devoted an entire post to why M.C. Hammer is better than Vanilla Ice, and he watches Wrestlemania.  What’s not to love here?

6.  Brickhouse101’s Blog – I, like her, am hopelessly guarded and am surrounded by walls.  I respect her already.

7.  This is Me – I must admit that I’m a little jealous of her, and I plan to live vicariously through her travels.  I can’t wait to hear about all the amazing adventures she has in store for her in this newest chapter of her life.

8.  here and there – Other than the fact that she went to Alabama, her life is pretty fascinating.  The photos from her time in the Peace Corps are amazing.

9.  The Irrefutable Opinion – No one can argue with death by sedatives over being eaten alive by zombies, right?

10.  Where Words Fail… – I, too, am a lover of music and believe wholeheartedly that there is no emotion that music can’t reach.  I also love most of her favorite things.  Except cats.  I hate cats.

11.  whiny baby – She’s all the things I’m not.  That’s awesome.

And finally, the part for all you awesome blogger nominees.  Here are your questions:

1.  Why did the chicken cross the road?

2.  M&Ms: plain or peanut?

3.  What’s your favorite joke?

4.  Best pick-up line?

5.  Early bird or night owl?

6.  Freddy or Jason?

7.  How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop?

8.  Favorite pizza toppings?

9.  Favorite smell?

10.  Can money buy love?

11.  What song is it impossible not to dance to?

Again, thanks to don of all trades for the nomination and to all of you for holding your applause until the end.
