I am officially FAMOUS!!!!

I'm so excited. . .and I just can't hide it. . .I'm about to lose control and I think I like it. Oh yeah. . . 

I'm between an eighties leg warmer, scrunchie sporting, leotard wearing Flashdance moment and a Carlton from the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air dancing moment.  Or maybe, it's more like the Carlton dance while wearing leg warmers, scrunchie and a leotard?  Either way. . .I'm super duper stooooopid excited right now.  Why, you ask?  Well, because, while I was minding my own little business at work (yes, I do alot of blogging from work.  Shh. . .don't tell anyone!), and I stumbled upon Ashley's blog at Attempts at Domestication ( where she has kindly awarded me with the Versatile Blogger award.  Can you say Yip-to the-eeeeee? 

The rules of the award are as follows:

- Thank and link back to the person who gave the award to you
- Share 7 things about yourself
- Send it along to 15 other (new/newer) bloggers and let them know you have awarded them!

This is my first blogging award so my palms are sweaty and my heart is racing but I'd like to send a great big "Shout it Out from the Rooftops" THANK YOU to Ashley at Attempts at Domestication!  Check out her cute little blog baby at and show her some blog love.  Not only is she a newer blogger but she's a fellow Richmonder so that just makes her automatic cool-ness.  Add in the fact that she gifted me my first blog award and I'd love to just fold her up, stick her in my pocket, and carry her along everywhere with me as my little good luck charm! 

Alright, in sticking with the rules of the award, here are 7 things about myself:

1. I love Mexican food.  Like really love it.  I dream about Mexican food.  I could bathe in a tub filled with that delicious white cheese that they serve.  Is that weird?  Just checking.  And no, there's no picture to go along with this one.  Sorry! 

2. I try very very hard to be organized, but I just can't stay that way.  I mean, look at all the junk that I keep in my purse (if you're interested in reading more, check out the post about it here.  One of my very first posts!)

3.  My son is my best friend.  Yep, I'm twenty nine and my best friend is six years old.  But, I can't help it.  I just love him to pieces.  He's super smart, totally adorable, and the funniest person I know.  He's literally an old wise man trapped in a little boy's body. 

4.  I love to read and I'm pretty sure I'm obsessed with Nicholas Sparks.  Not just his books.  Him.  He's a good ole' North Carolina boy who loves his family to pieces.  Since he's married, I suppose I can stick with being in love with the men he writes about in his books.  What can I say?  I'm a hopeless romantic!

5.  The Footprints poem is my favorite poem.  Has been since I was a little girl.  It still makes me cry to this day. 

BTW: I took this picture!  Those are mine and my little bestie's footprints!

6. I'm terrified about being a single mom.  But, my son makes it kinda easy. 

7.  My favorite place to be right now is at the beach house.  Not just a beach house, but my mom's beach house.  I can feel her when I'm there and it's comforting.  Plus, the whole place smells like her perfume so I can smell her too.

Now, I still need to pass this award along to a few other new-er bloggers. Since I can't just make these decisions willy nilly, I'm going to take a little bit of time to really think about this and make my selections carefully.  Deep thought and consideration needs to go into this process.  I will post soon with my award pass-er on-er winners. 

For now, I'm going to go relish in the fact that I'm a WINNER!!!!!  Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!


  1. Thanks for the shout outs! And Mexican food is my fave! Love it! Have a great weekend! :)

  3. We have so much in common lol. My daughter is my best friend too! And I love love love Nicholas Sparks books. You're right being a single mom is pretty scary and lonely. But our children make it all worthwhile!
