And the Award Goes to ME

Okay a couple of days ago, or hell it could have been longer than that my memory has been slipping lately, Jane awarded me a chore of some sort, somehow thinking that I would appreciate said award. Here is what she told me I must do, list 6 things that I love then pass the award onto 6 other deserving blogs that I love! Hmmm…If I were a good person, (which I’m not saying I’m not, just pointing something out) I would give the obvious choices of Hubby, C1, C2, C3, God and my Country… BUT, that would be too easy and not as fun. Who am I kidding, this isn’t fun at all? Uh, THANKS Jane.

Six things I love:

I love coffee. I prefer my coffee with loads of French vanilla cream or a trip to Starbutts for a cinnamon dolce latte with whip cream, which only happens when I am felling generous to myself. Actually that happens quite a lot like at least 4-5 times per week.

That must mean that I love ME. Yes, I do, I love ME! Why? Who the hell knows, but somewhere along this journey of life I decided that I should be the Head Diva, the Queen of All and I deserve everything I want. It is all about ME and I love being ME.

I love my high thread count (forgot the actual number, that memory thing again) damask sheets that I practically stole from Target for $39.99 for a king size set. I love them so much I went back and bought extra sets so that I never have to sleep on rough sheets again. Remember it’s all about ME.

I love when we get to fall back and change our clocks in October. Is this non-daylight savings time? Hmmm… Anyway, I love that when I get home it is dusk and then shortly thereafter DARK and I don’t have to feel guilty about putting my pajamas on the moment I walk in the door from work. I mean being dark at least justifies the fact that I have my pajamas on at 5:30 pm every day...

I love shoes. I am a certifiable shoe-aholic. I don’t even care that some pairs sitting in my closet only get worn maybe once a year, they are cute and they are mine. Imelda Marcus had nothing on me!

And finally, I love Eskimo Pies. Not the imitation ones, nobody can match the mouth watering sensation and smooth, creamy ice cream of an Eskimo Pie. Not Blue Bell, not the store brand, not even Dove. They all suck in comparison to the Eskimo Pie.

Now for the six blogs I love. Honestly there are so many more than six, how do I even choose six? This is so unfair and unjust to make me pick six when I love so many. This rule sucks. To solve this problem, I went to my trusty method of making my trusty assistant draw them out of a hat. I wrote all of the blogs that I follow and LOVE on little scraps of paper and told her to pick out six. I bet sometimes she thinks I am just a demented total weirdo when I make her do these things when she has absolutely no idea what I am doing.

So here they are in no certain order:
Becca, Jaysey, mommaof4, MIA Betsy, Meg and Joisey.

You forgot to mention the FOUR pillowcases that came with our beloved sheets!
See that wasn't so hard, was it? Because you are nothing if not Kreativ... whatever that means.

I'm such a slacker.....I still haven't done mine. You really are a diva, aren't you? Nice sheets, 5 lattes a week and tons of kick-ass shoes. Maybe someday I can be as "diva-ish" as you are!

Hawkeye Chick said...

You're pretty damn giving for being so in love with yourself. I am with you on the nice sheets though.
