I had no idea when I started this blog that I would meet the fantastic people that I have.

That I would feel such a sense of accomplishment

That I would learn to go with the flow and not to look at numbers

I had no idea how therapeutic it would be.


I was not ready for the giddiness that would erupt from a blog award!

Thank you to Robin from Farewell Stranger!

She has presented me with the Versatile Blogger Award!

I’m supposed to list 7 things about myself, but I just did that when I received the Sylish Blogger Award.

I’m so not doing it again.

I will, however, present this award to some bloggers!

Surferwife – versatile? Oh yes…and hot! Like Whoa

Kimberly at All Work and no Play Make Mommy Go Something Something – Kim writes about her PPD honestly, she’s relatable and she’s HIGHlarious. Go get you some!

Lady Estrogen – umm…go see! Read her blog…she’s plenty versatile

Galit BreenThese Little Waves. Galit takes my breath away with each post. She’s a writer I look up to.

I’m Stylin’


I’m standing at the podium.

My hands are shaking, the spotlight is shining in my eyes, my spanks are so tight I might faint.

I didn’t prepare a speech because I was SURE that tramp Angelina would win AGAIN this year.

Guess what?


Amy over at Spread a Little Thin presented me with this award and I’m bursting with appreciation.


There are rules.

1. Forward on the Award to 10 other Bloggers

2. Tell you 7 random things about myself

3. Charge a $5 fee for the information.

Okay that last one I made up.

Here’s the deal.

I have already been the recipient of this Award once before. I KNOW RIGHT! So I don’t want to bore you with 7 annoying things about myself.


Yes I do.

1. I hate the colour orange. I’m not kidding. No I won’t get over it.

2. I eat a tub of hummus more than once a week.

3. I never wear anything sleeveless because I hate my armpits.

4. I find a weak handshake frustrating. Like a dead fish. Strengthen that shit up.

5. I want to be the kind of parent to my daughter that my parents were to me. I’m afraid everyday that I won’t be.

6. I love being in a car. Driver/passenger whatever. The drive to the destination is the best part.

7. I am rarely intimidated.

Now… onto the 10 bloggers.

I am going to cheat.


Yeah, I so am. Sorry, Quality not Quantity people.

Because she’s my sister from another mister and I love everything she writes Leigh Ann from The Twin Spin

When I go crazy I go to her for comfort, Chantelle from Mom Went Crazy

She is part of the “Pack of Leeanne’s” but her name is Kelly and she can write so go see her at Dances With Chaos

A dedicated writer who’s passion shines through in her words, Leanne from Ironic Mom

A woman who’s words blow me away each time I read her blog Jessica from Four Plus an Angel

And one of my very first blog friends and supports, Robin from the beautiful blog Farewell Stranger

Thanks again to Amy!

I am flattered.

And The Award Goes to…


On Jan. 17th I was presented with a Stylish Blogger Award by Kristy from Pampers and Pinot and found myself in a foggy dreamlike state, full of gratitude and pretend parties in my honour, there were so many photographers! I’m ashamed to say I forgot to pay my award forward!!
I’m now sober and am paying it forward to 7 bloggers and revealing 7 things about myself… SCANDALOUS!

1. I love coffee… no not the way a normal person loves coffee, pouring it into their “give me coffee or else” mug in the morning.. I drink coffee all day, everyday. When I go out I buy coffee, the hotter the better.

2. I hate to shower (I do it but I hate it).

3. I make lists for everything, I make lists for my lists, I have journals for my journals.

4. I hate it when people drink the left over milk from their cereal out of the bowl like its a cup.. ITS NOT A CUP! Its a bowl, a bowl with cereal spit in it.

5. I sometimes give the finger when my baby isn’t in the car and its liberating (and sometimes when she is).

6. I have a bulimic cat, for real, and have to clean my carpets with a steam cleaner once a week. Despite my hatred towards her retching and screams of “this barf will be your last!” while I clean up after her I really do fear she’s going to die from her disease and that I’m her enabler.

7. I love Jersey Shore – I know you’re disgusted… me too
