who me? stylish? you must have the wrong girl.

today i got an award from the exciting and always entertaining lady estrogen over at adventures in estrogen. we just discovered each other recently, but i like her, even though i can't be certain that her stories are safe for reading when the wee one is lurking about.

How this works...
1. Thank and link back to the person who honored you with this award.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Award 15 recently discovered bloggers.
4. Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award!

and here's my list.
1. i could live on cheese and potatoes for the rest of my life.
2. sitting down onto a warm, recently vacated toilet seat is like accidentally eating a piece of popcorn that someone else has sucked on & then spit out. gives me a bad case of the shuddering yucks.
3. i chomp & chew on gum like an agitated 12 year old girl all the time.
4. i love watching holly hobby movies with my daughter.
5. when i was a kid, i had a rabbit named bunz and he died from having too much diarhea. i guess his buns were rotten.
6. pepto bismol is a tasty treat to me. i can drink it like a smoothie and if i eat with too much abandon on those cheese & taters, i need it.
7. my idea of exercise is a good, brisk sit.

i don't know about 15, but here are the blogs i'd like to award this time around because for most of them, i just found them recently & i like them. now go & read & show them some love!

for those of you who are getting this award from me, feel free to do nothing with it unless you want to. i just wanted to share some love, not push you into a post you don't feel like doing.
happy hopping!


  1. I know what you mean about chewing gum. Funny list.

  2. I LOVED reading this about you. You are too funny! I love cheese and potatoes but don't eat them near enough, but have to say you loving the Pepto makes me shudder as much as the recently used toilet seat- I hate medicine! ha! Hope you had a great weekend!

  3. I am going to have to check out these blogs.
    I love cheese. I wish I could eat it all the time, but my body tells me not to.

  4. Love your list!!
    I've switched to Pepto Cherry and I could never look back.

    I agree with you last point as well - my coaster at my desk says, "Exercising is great but accessorizing is better!"


  5. Oh my gosh your list is HILARIOUS!! Thank you so much for listing me and thanks for the laughs this morning :) I will definitely do one!

  6. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR MY AWARD!! You rock as always!! Your list is great and I love this idea too great way to share new blogs!

  7. Wow thanks for mentioning me on your blog, I needed that. Right at the moment I was feeling pretty down in the dumbs about some trivial(ooooohhhhhh not so trivial)
    Let just say I still feel pissed off.

    Anyhow having somebody appreciate me at this very moment was awesome..(sniff sniff)

    AND the biggest and best hug to you because you let me off the hook. That is so cool of you.

    I really did not want to post anything about myself right now.

    Love ya for it!

  8. Oh and chewing gum makes me mad. I have no idea why, I feel like I need to chew with vim and vigor!

    Gee you might think, I am a real weirdo angry pshyco..but I am not.

  9. Congrats on the award; love the list. Cheese fan, here, too.

  10. You are hilarious! I love your post! I too am a lover of cheese....and I happen to live in a mecca of cheese making in Monroe, WI. The high school team is even known as the "Cheesemakers".....and we had "Cheese Days" last September (I have a post on that one!).

    Love your blog....and love that your sweet daughter is expressing herself in hers too! how cool is that!?

  11. I'd like to thank you, one of my greatest commenters, and my husband for supporting me, and my 2YO for giving me things like boogers and poop to talk about.

    lol! I'm a nerd! Thanks for the award!

  12. I have an award for you. Please come check it out at R.O.A.R

    I know you've been awarded with this already, but I still wanted to share it with you.

  13. if i ate potatoes and cheese all the time, i would much be like bunz and would keep that toilet seat really nice and warm for you!

  14. Well, HOLY WOWZA, my first award actually. Thank you so much for thinking of little ol' me.
    seriously, I do appreciate it.
    I am about the least "stylish" lady out there.
    NOW...if we were talking red neck and classless...that would be me (well, I guess NOT really)
    I have my moments of what would be known as British properness...or however you'd want to say it.

    your list of things about yourself were great. Rotten buns....that was funny.
    Cheese and Potatoes......the Kiss of Death.


don't let me be the only one doing the talking around here. spill your guts!
