OMG...another one?!!

I am totally running out of designer gowns with all of the awards ceremonies I've been attending...

So, what a wonderful thing to find this amazing award from Elizabeth at Trenches of Mommyhood after my Tuesday night meltdown and all...

Thank you, Elizabeth!!!!!!!! Just the thing a girl needs to start her day right!

Here are the rules: Tell 10 things about myself that not everyone knows (which may be tough considering I let it all hang out on my blog, but I'll give it a shot) and then pass along to 10 bloggers. Here I go...

1. I am slightly color-blind
2. I am all kinds of freaked out about ghosts and hauntings I will not buy a house if I know someone has died there...
3. One of my guilty pleasures is watching shows like Paranormal State
4. I actually enjoy doing the dishes and cleaning the house (uninterrupted!)
5. I have 2 sisters, 1 sister-in-law, 2 brothers-in-law, 8 nieces, 4 nephews, 1 great niece and 2 great nephews
6. I would like to consider myself a karaoke QUEEN!
7. I LOVE all things HGTV
8. I met Vern Yip and the lead singer of Collective Soul (not at the same time)
9. I am embarrassed to say that I have been to 4 Britney Spears concerts in the past 6 years.
10. I'm in school full time to be an elementary school teacher.

Now that you probably respect me a whole lot less after reading #9, let's get to the 10 recipients. I'm choosing these based on the blogs I LOVE and who I want to give a little link love to...

1. Kat at Today's Cliche is My BFF in the blogosphere. We have only met through blogging and email, but we did just recently chat on the phone for hourse while she drove home from BloggyBootcamp! Her blog talks about the Cliche's that we all live and the man's perspective as well as the woman's. It's cool! Her husband writes too!!

2. My girl Jessica at Adventures of a Wife and Mom is new to blogging but her blog has grown so much in just a few weeks! We  know each other in real life, so it's all the more cool to be blogging friends!

3. Lori at Mommy Friend is one of my absolute FAVORITE people/bloggers. I have awarded her before but it's because she DESERVES IT, DARN IT! Every time I see she has posted, I race to her blog to's THAT good!

4. Dalia at Generation X Mom talks about all the things that affect us as parents in today's world. Some heavy stuff and poignant topics. A definite must-visit site for parents!

5. Kiran at Masala Chica is a new guilty pleasure of mine. I love her writing and how it flows. She's funny and she really knows what she's talking about with this whole understanding analytics stuff that makes my eyes glaze over.

6. Natalie at Mommy on Fire is just nothing short of amazing. She has such a gift with writing and her own personal story is...I don't even have the words. She's REAL and that's something I value SO MUCH! I think the world of her!

7. Mary at The Mommyologist is one of the funniest people I have ever encountered. Even when she's writing about serious stuff (like fraudulent charges on her credit card to the tune of 100's of dollars), she's hysterical!

8. Sophia's Mom (her identity is a secret, isn't that cool?!) at The Wananbe WAHM is on a quest to start her own business and is also a mommy. She's so funny and she just finished a self-imposed 30 day blogging challenge. Good stuff.

9. Heather at Theta Mom...what is there to say??? She has single-handedly created an awesome community of bloggers. She's nothing short of amazing...join her community!

10. Allyson at Magnolias and Mimosas is also a new guilty pleasure of mine. Just love her writing style. Please go visit and check out her blog!

And there you have it folks......please go give these ladies some comment love! It's SO nice to be appreciated on your blog, isn't it?


  1. Thank you so much for this award!! I am totally obsessed with the paranormal too. I wouldn't want to live anywhere haunted either!

    But I have to say. Britney? Four times?!!
    Kiran (Masala Chica)

  3. #2 and #3 are just funny together.

    You might want to keep #9 to yourself.

  4. YAY!!! Im so excited to get another award!!!! It really makes my day! I have to think of 10 things and 10 favorites! This may take a minute!

  5. Get out! I love this "Sugar Doll" award, makes me feel all cute and sassy-like. Thanks Mandy P, you know I love ya!

  6. Mandy, YOU are the Sugar Doll! Thank you so much for the award and for being so kind and supportive. I love the look of your new blog and I have so enjoyed "meeting" you over the blogosphere. Hoping to meet you in "real life" soon!
