I’d Like To Thank The Academy….

Not to brag or anything, but I just got an award.  This was a really nice surprise, as I was just starting to wonder who you had to blow to get one of these flattering acknowledgements.  It turns out I just had to connect with someone who appreciates my warped sense of humor.  Thank you so much Lora for giving me my very first award!  Ever.  I highly recommend checking out Lora’s extremely funny and relatable blog f-words!  If you know me at all, then you know that the name of her blog alone had me hooked.  There’s a bit of everything on her site and it’s all well written with humor and wit.  She’s very entertaining, and as of now, on account of this award, she’s my favorite person that I’ve never met!

This award comes with some rules.  It was a little work for me, as I’m technologically challenged.  I didn’t mind figuring this whole thing out, though.  I was tired of taking care of the kids anyway.  Chocolate chip cookies for dinner today, Mommy’s got some blogging to do!  So here are the rules.  You have to:

  • Thank your Liebster Blog Award presenter on your blog.
  • Link back to the blogger who presented you with the award.
  • Copy and paste the award onto your blog.
  • Present the Liebster Blog Award to 5 bloggers with less than 200 followers.
  • Let them know they have been chosen by leaving them a comment

I’m not sure how many followers some of these blogs have, but these are my favorites.  (If any of them happen to have more than 200 followers, does that void my award?)

1.  haphillips  – This guy is laugh out loud funny.  He tells great stories that both my husband and myself can relate to.

2. Ramblings From Jewels – A very inspiring blog to read, Julie is insightful and loves to garden.

3.  Gravitas, baby! – I just found this guy last week and I’m so glad I did!  The things he writes have me cracking up randomly throughout the day at the most inappropriate times.

4.  Every Now And Then – This site is very peaceful and charming.  A visually stimulating blog with inspirational quotes and thoughts.

5.  Saving it All –  This blogger writes about clever ways to save money.  She also makes me smile with her great sense of humor.

I also want to mention Jen at Insert witticism here….  She would have been my first pick to pass this award to, if she hadn’t already gotten it.  I literally look forward to her posts the way a five-year old looks forward to Christmas morning.  She makes me laugh until I pee myself, and my mascara is running down my cheeks.  I recommend checking out her blog as she is one of my top favorites.

Thanks again Lora!  This has been a lot of fun!

  1. Pfft. No brainer. You’re like the funniest person, ever.


  2. I feel like I’ve been awarded all over again! I also feel completely outdone in my own honourable mention to you. Oh the shame. Is it too late for ditto?
    FYI, your cheque’s in the mail.


  3. Lisa, I am going to thank the shit out of you in my blog, you just wait!!!!!


  4. OMG! You mentioned my blog in your blog! Thank you! I will post the award thingy somehow, but I’m technologically challenged, so it may take a minute. I just got a smartphone and sound 80 regularly…”what does this gosh darn button do? How do I turn this thing off????!” Your blog is the only one I read every time it comes to my inbox. Others are sporadic…I know yours will always make me laugh, so thanks for that!!! 🙂


    • Of course I mentioned you! You have a great sense of humor and some clever and much needed advice on saving money. Take your time posting the award thingy. I feel your pain. 🙂 Thanks so much for the huge compliment! It’s nice to know that you look forward to my posts. It makes me feel appreciated and puts a big smile on my face!


  5. You’re hilarious even when accepting an award ~ “I was tired of taking care of the kids anyway.” lol! For the record… Lora isn’t the only one who appreciates your “warped sense of humor.” I do too! Immensely! I always look forward to your blogs because I know I’ll get a good laugh out of them. You sincerely deserve this, congratulations! And thank you so much for mentioning my blog, I am honored!


    • Aww! Thanks Jewels! I’m so glad you “get me”. And you’re welcome for mentioning your blog. You have inspired me to start a small flower garden with my daughter. (I’m not a big fan of vegetables. In fact, I have to plug my nose and chug a spicey V8 just to get any kind of vegetables in my system) Planting the garden was fun! My daughter and I thank you for the inspiration.


  6. Thank you so much Lisa, I appreciate this more than you know. And thank you for making me smile, I was having a really shitty day up until now..
