No Worst Dressed List for Moi!

Monday, August 24, 2009....

In one fell swoop, I am going to properly accept almost all the awards given to me over the past few months. So here goes:

Sunshine Meg gave me the Love Ya Award back in June and although I raved about it, I need to be a good blogger and move it forward.

Here are the rules:

"This award is bestowed on to blogs that are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."

My 8! Dan at the Art of Panic
kk at Will Work for Shoes
Children of the Nineties
Helen at Feeding Five for Fifty
Heather at Now I'm a Grownup
The Optimist Pessimist
Tudor City Girl
Simply Stephanie

Thanks to all of you for making me laugh constantly. Love the stories that are shared each day.

Constructive Attitude at Symphonic Discord bestowed 4 awards on me. Four...can you believe it? Wow. I'm stunned and speechless. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Love Ya Award:

Green Eyed Momster
The Actor's Diet
Two Neskes

Vespa Blogger Friendship Award:

Jewels Diva

and Silly Stud if he ever decides to blog again.

Best Blogging Buddies:

Venti Issues
a corgi
Simply Stephanie
Float On


Living and Loving L.A.
Girl Inspired
Midtown Girl

I was given no rules, but would like to acknowledge 4 fellow bloggers for each award. That sounds fair.

Yesterday, Jenny Mac of Let's Have a Cocktail bestowed this on me:

Jenny also bestowed the award to Green Eyed Momster who in turn, gave it to me again. I guess there is more than one person that thinks I give good blog.

The rules for this wonderful award are to make a cocktail, pick out some of your favorite bloggers. Send this award to 4 of them. Tell them why you think they give good blog.

Since I've been doubly blessed with this award, I will sip two French Martinis (once I get the recipe down) and nominate the following 8 people.

Constructive Attitude at Symphonic Discord for opening my eyes

Whimsy for sharing such a personal journey of meeting her biological father and brother

Just Playing Pretend and her outstanding post on why mayonnaise is scary

The Peach Tart for making me laugh

Andy for his excellent reviews of Maxim and Cosmo

Chris for answering the question of what happened to baby bear and hermie the dentist. Chris was also kind enough to clear up the mystery for me of what happened to the monkeys from The Wizard of Oz.

LiLu for not only putting out great material daily, but also having comebacks to everyone's comments.

Edder She has many tremendous posts, but this one, her love of Starbucks making home delivery, had me hooked. Her excitement about having a Starbuck's barista appear at her doorstep was clear and obvious to me -- it almost made me a bit envious.

Now, I have to notify everyone...Now, I know why it is bad to hold onto awards...Now, I won't be so lazy....But, I got to wear shorts and a T-shirt while thanking the many bloggers who extended well wishes on me with these great awards and paying it forward...

thanks so much for the award! we love ya right back!


oh and i do not know of that makeup artist....

LiLu said...

That is TOO funny- I just commented on the Peach Tart and said how much I loved this one!!! You are the best, babe. :-)

Heckety said...

Whimsy said...

You have been BUSY, girl.

This is awesome - thank you so much!!! I really appreciate it.

Andy said...

Hey, thanks! I knew my desire to write about boobies in Cosmo and Maxim would pay off.

otin said...

Thank you for not tagging me!!! You are my hero! LOL!

rxBambi said...

Wow you did rack up! Thanks so much for tagging me (and I'm going to tag Otin cuz I know he loves them)!

I feel all warm and gushy inside now...thanks again

Constructive Attitude said...

I didnt write that post from Symphonic Discord. It was actually one of the co-authors of S.D. : Controlled Chaos.

But thank you for the recognition. We ALL really appreciate it :)

Green-Eyed Momster said...

I wasn't paying attention when passing out the awards and always feel bad just giving the award to a few people so I thought I'd just take the first who commented on my last posts would work. My brain was fried from having company. I will pay better attention and try not to give the same people the awards that I was given. Please forgive me. You must give the best blog of all if you received it twice!

Congrats on all of your awards! And, thank you! I'll try not to give it back to you!! he he he! :)


The Peach Tart said...

Oh thank you so much for my award. Big hugs to you because I love your blog so am honored to get an award from you. I will post it on my blog.

DB said...

Okay, I am super jealous of the Starbucks home delivery post - although part of the fun of Starbucks is actually going there. That is a great story.

More importantly, did you have cute hair for your various awards ceremonies? You know that is very important!

Midlife Jobhunter said...

Gotta like the Give Good Blog award. Congrats on all of them. Serious bling.

Living and Loving In L.A. said...
