Beaucoup Awards

Wednesday, September 23, 2009

They say bad luck comes in threes but in my case, it's not bad luck at all. I was presented with THREE awards in the last week. Sorry I haven't acknowledged them before now, ladies, but here they are.

It's been a while since I took French, but I think it says, "I love your boobs" or something like that. Thank you to Nancy at f8hasit.

The rules for this award are simple. I must pass this on to 2 deserving blogs and tell you 10 things that I adore today.

First my list of adorations in no particular order...

1. My beagle, Bernadette (Bernie) I haven't been blessed with children so when I finally bought a house, I decided that I needed the pitter patter of little paws walking around. Most think I treat her a little too much like an actual child but my therapist says that's okay.

2. My amazing friends: For my lack of children, God has doubly blessed me with incredible friends. They're supportive, funny, smart and know too many of my deep dark secrets to ever get away.

3. The autumn season: I know everyone is whining that summer's over but I'm thrilled that the weather is cooler and the leaves are starting to turn.

4. My sense of humor. Now before you take this wrong. I'm not saying, "Ha, ha, I'm so funny." I just mean, thank goodness I was raised to not take myself or life too seriously. I can always find the humor in any situation and it's been my saving grace through some dark days.

5. Ice cream. I would eat it for every meal of every day if I could. Chocolate syrup a must, whipped cream optional.

6. Mascara. I can leave the house without a stitch of makeup (on the weekends only, of course..what am I? Nuts?) but I can't leave the house without my mascara.

7. My bed. your mind of the gutter. For sleeping. I ADORE sleeping. I can fall asleep anytime, anywhere but prefer the comfort of my own bed with 5 pillows and a ceiling fan lazily rotating overhead.

8. Air conditioning. Hands down, best invention ever.

9. Black pants. I don't need to explain this one, do I ladies?

10. My blog. I've been blogging since January and I love the creative outlet. All the friends I've made are just the icing on the cake.

And the award goes to...drum roll, please..

Daniel Knight at Knucklehead

Oscar and Maisie at Oscar and Pals

This fabu award came from my friend Collette at My Babcia's Babushka.

The requirements for this award are to post the award on my blog, linking it to the presenter. Next, I must list my 5 (yes, only 5) biggest obsessions. Lastly, I must pass this award on to 5 other worthy bloggers. So, here are my 5 biggest obsessions, not in any particular order:

1. Diet Coke. I don't drink coffee, so first thing in the morning, I have a can of Diet Coke. And then I just keep drinking it two or three times a day.

2. Blogging. Reading other blogs, networking, posting, commenting, replying to comments. I love it all!

3. Becoming a Blog of Note. Kathryn, Congratulations on achieving this wonderful honor but step aside,darling, your 15 minutes are up.

4. Losing 20 pounds. This obsession used to be losing 10 pounds.

5. Winning the lottery. People win every day. Why not ME? I really believe it's possible.

I forward this to the fabu people below:

Kathryn at From the Inside...Out

Theresa at An Officer and a Garbage Can

Chloe at To Ruminate About my Life

Jessi at Jessi, Bob and the Monsters

Travel and Dive Girl at Journey and Adventure

I just like how dirty this one sounds. It came from that little minx Stacie at Stacie's Madness. I'm passing this to my naughty pal below:

Ron at Vent
