Congratulations, Ladies!

And while we're talking about awards...I would like to discuss the evolution of a particular award. The award is called the Premium Meme Award and I received it in August. I forwarded it as the instructions stipulated and someone who forwarded it on confused the name of the award with the person who sent the award. Um, that would be me.

So, much like one of our favorite childhood games, Telephone, the award took on a new look and a new name. I was alerted to this by a friend who said, "Why is there an award called the I Shoulda Been a Stripper Award?"

Excuse me?

Needless to say, I wasn't the one who originated the award and I'm a little miffed that it's making the rounds in blog land.

Am I being petty? Mmmm...probably. But I'm guessing that most of you would be mildly annoyed as well if there was an award floating around with your blog's name on it.

In all fairness, I contacted the person who made the original error and I do believe her when she says that it was an honest mistake. I asked her to replace the award on her sidebar with the original one and I'm confident that she'll do the right thing.


  1. Another award. Nice work. :)

  2. Congrats!!!

    Yes, I'd be a little upset if I were u as well. I hope she changed it!!

  3. Congratualtions on your Over the Top award!
    I like that picks peoples brains. And I'm amazed that I already knew some of your answers! Go figure!

    Your passing it onto ME just lets me know that you want me to put MY brain out there on paper. Thanks tons, Chrissy.

    Love ya'!
    And thanks for the award!

  4. Congrats on another award. I can tell you now that I nominated you for the Nobel Peace Prize this year. Sorry you didn't win.

  5. Congrats on the award! And as far as I'm concerned, there's only ONE PERSON who shoulda been a stripper... and that's you, Chrissy, only you.

  6. @Matthew,
    Thanks so much!

    Thanks, Jessi!

    Sorry, ya gotta work for this one, baby/

    @C.Andres Alderete,

  10. First of all...congrats on the award, my friend!

    Second of all...maybe this is a sign that you should create your OWN I Shoulda Been a Stripper Award!

    Hey, funny you mentioned Dillards because when I lived in Florida, that was one of my favorite stores to shop at. We don't have them here in Philly.

    And congrats to your award recipients!
