Oops, I Must Follow the Rules!

So I’m reading along…yada yada and I see that these awards have “rules”.  I notice that I didn’t do what I was supposed to do!  Chalk it up to a newbie mistake.  here ya go:

Versatile Blogger Award:

  •  Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy: Check.  Of course, did that in my previous post.  I’m MORE than grateful!
  •  Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out how to do it: Check.  Got the name linked up in previous post.
  •  Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. ( I would add, pick blogs or bloggers that are excellent!): Here are my daily favorites

Fear No Weebles – She keeps me quite entertained and laughing with her humorous posts.
Daydreaming Disney – I didn’t think anyone would love Disney more than me!
A Clown On Fire – Pure hilarity
Donkey Whisperer Farm Blog – Because before I found this blog, I didn’t know there was anything such as a Donkey Whisperer.  Oh, and I love Donkeys.
Super Flat Cycling Photos – My dad is a cyclist and I try to be sometimes….I love these photos, they are amazing.
Momentum of Joy – One word, Inspirational.
The Kit-Kat Sisters – Their posts are simple, but meaningful
Stefan’s Gourmet Blog – Because he cooks like me and I love every single, solitary recipe that he posts.  I want to BE Stefan.
Making Time for Mom – I’m an ex-extreme couponer but still love a great deal
Vegetarian Ventures – Loving anything that has to do with vegetarian recipes so this blog is a go-to for me.
Putney Farm – Their photos and recipes make me drool.
One Veg World – I want to eat everything they post.  I’m definitely planning to pay the restaurant a visit next time I’m in the area!
Carr Party of Five – Because I think her life is probably as hectic as mine.
linda vernon humor – Side splitting humor and charming wit!
Thoughts Appear – Probably one of my absolute favorites I try to visit every day.  She almost makes me want to be a cat person…..almost.

  • Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award:  OK, they are hereby nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award  (wave of wand and sparkle of light)

  •  Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

Out of all of this, I’m sure this will be the most difficult….here goes….

  1. My “dream” was to be a Broadway star someday…or a music teacher…one of the two.
  2. I have a serious man-crush on Gerard Butler and David Beckham – it’s a sick fixation.
  3. I can’t scrub carpet.  Ok that doesn’t sound right…I mean I can’t stand the sound of any material rubbing against carpet.  Makes me want to throw up.  If the dog peed, I have to blot it up with my shoe.
  4. I’m deathly afraid of heights.
  5. I used to “collect” (capture) little worms as a kid and make houses for them out of index card boxes..furnished and everything!
  6. I cannot walk in heels.  Seriously, anything higher than a few inches and I’m face planting it on the ground.
  7. I’m addicted to Dexter (the TV show) and really wish there was one in real life…

There are a few other bloggers out there that I wish to award with the Beautiful Lipstick Award because like Lorna said, they are the ones you want to plant a big hug and kiss on.  These bloggers comment on my crazy posts all the time and I thank them for their support!

Irene @ Me Myself and I
Chancy the Gardner
Mary @ The ME-gan Lifestyle
Easy Blog
Diane @ HomeToGo232

There are several others but just know I didn’t forget you — I will catch you the next go-around.  I appreciate ALL of you!

    That is so cute! Thank you very much! I truly do enjoy reading your blogs – they’re interesting, funny and good reading! xxoo’s – thanks again!


  2. Chancy and Mumsy says:

    Congratulations on the well deserved awards. We love your blog. Thank you for thinking of us and nominating us. We will formally recognize the nomination the next award blog we put out. We appreciate you thinking of us. Hugs and nose kisses


  3. I’m right there with you on the high heels thing. I actually managed to break my foot (extremely badly) doing nothing more than walking up some stairs in heels. Haven’t worn anything vaguely near a heel since then. I’m one of those people who are always managing to do the silly thing that everyone around them is thinking “thank goodness that wasn’t me”. Oh well, at least they get to laugh.


    • I’m good with “fat” heels…big clunky ones. Wedges are ok too but skinny heels any bigger than 2″…it’s baaaaad. I just can’t do it and it stinks because I am only 5’2″. There are so many cute shoes out there that I would love to own but I’d have to take a “how to walk in heels” class just to get use out of them!

    I love seeing my name nominated for an award! I’ve often been nomintaed for the AVN Adult Movie Awards, which I don’t know why, I have kids, but it doesn’t make me a porn star… Anyway, I’m really honoured to be declining this award! But I am not an ungrateful clown… I’d like to nominate you for the most awesome and magnificent award… The Alan Smithee Blog award. Yes, Jen… It’s all yours to do what you want with it. A tattoo? I think so: http://clownonfire.wordpress.com/the-awards-circus/alan-smithee/

    • You made my morning. I couldn’t be more honored about having an award turned down, so for this, I thank you. I’ll be snatching up my Alan Smithee award faster than you can say supercalifragalisticexpialidocious and proudly display it on my blog. In all truthfulness, your blog totally gives me the giggles and I might….just might take you up on that tattoo suggestion but would rather have it say “Long Live Le Clown”. 🙂


    • That saddens me. I am 100% a Dexter addict! I thought maybe, after seeing this season’s trailer that they decided to make this the last season instead. I just don’t know how Dex will get himself out of this much trouble this time! Oooh I can’t wait for it!!


      • Me either. I don’t have a TV but my son and his wife record them on their DVR and save them for me to come visit. Only fair they were the ones who got me hooked in the first place by buying me season 1 so I would have some thing to watch when I gave up the TV


    • Yeah Christian is a cutie as well, you should see my man montage on Pinterest I have some good ones of him on there too. It’s my favorite board and I’ll look at the pics I have there whenever I’m having a bad day. Never fails to put a smile on my face!
