‘Tis the Season

Those there bloggy awards are sure coming fast and furious. I had to go to the dry cleaner to get my red carpet dress pressed. What a dilemma to have. So, as was so eloquently done before me, I shall share with you who I am wearing as I strut down the red carpet. Joan Rivers, if you will:

“Heligirl is all aglow this evening. Look at how the young men stare.  Is that a three year old Petite Sophisticate t-shirt with moch sequins accenting the print? Why I believe it is. And those slightly too big Old Navy kacki capris show a little skin in a way that says it’s not meant to doesn’t it? Those old New Balance sneakers just scream don’t mess with me or I’ll kick you lilly white ass. Personally, I think the pony tail and fresh, natural makeup free look top off the entire ensemble.”

Aren’t you glad this isn’t a photo blog?

This time around I was honored with the Versitile Blogger Award from my buddy Stacie at Pullups and Pedicures (don’t you just love that name?) Check her out if you’ve got a moment. She tells some fun stories.

Now, on to the rules!

1. Thank and link back to the person who gave you this award.
2. Share seven things about yourself.
3. Pass this award along to five bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic for whatever reason!
4. Contact the bloggers you’ve picked and let them know about the award.

So you want to know seven things about me? OK, here goes my attempt to be as random as possible:

1. I’ve been in my house 5 1/2 years. It’s the longest I’ve ever lived at one address in my 38.5 years.

2. I lived in Glasgow, Scotland for seven months after college.

3. My first date with my husband was to see a basketball game of a team that no longer exists (Seattle Supersonics).

4. I chose my daughter’s name when I was 12 years old.

5. Jobs I’ve had in my life include (but are not limited to) McDonald’s slave, cave attendant at Sea Lion Caves, video store attendant, nanny, newspaper reporter, helicopter pilot, tour guide and public relations manager.

6. I hate red and green peppers. They’re the food of the devil. Yucky!

7. I played the flute in middle and high school, and I’ve never been to band camp.

And the winners are:

I pass along this amazingly cool award to the following incredible bloggers:

The Life or Rylie … and Bryce too! – our kids are close to the same age and I really enjoy see how much we’re dealing witht the same stuff on opposite sides of the country. Literally, I’m in Seattle and she’s in Florida.

My Life as a Libra – one balanced chicky-poo. Get it? Ha, ha. Seriously, she is.

The Mother Load – she’s super fab. You should see what she can do in a prom dress.

Lauren from Texas – One FUNNY ass writer. She’s a closet Team Jacob member. Like me.

Not Just Another Jen – I love her name, and her blog.

I hope you enjoy visiting these new blogs if you haven’t already. My favorite part about the bloggy awards is meeting new bloggers so I hope you’ll join me. Just don’t tell them what I’m wearing.

Why thank you so much for the award, I’m honored:) And also for calling me balanced because trust me, I totally don’t feel like I am;)

Yeah, but it’s all about attitude. Or you can be like me, proudly off balance. Comes with the hip replacement. Perhaps I can make that my new theme!

LeeAnn July 13, 2010 at 9:38 am

Thank you so much for the award! And trust me, I’m wearing just about the same ensemble on the red carpet. LOL

Dude! I SO wish I could be a helicopter pilot!

Heligirl July 15, 2010 at 8:24 am

He he. It has its perks.
