Look Ma! An Award!

Wendy in LaLaLand has honored me with an award and I am thrilled. It's like when I was nominated for prom court in my high school class of over 700. It's a great honor to be recognized out of so many great bloggers and peers. Thank you Wendy!

Some of my faves were already dubbed by Wendy in her nomination (DSS) so I won't be redundant. But you'll have to check out those that Wendy listed. All great reads!

And now, the Queenly Duties are as follows:

1. List 7 things that make me awe-summm.

2. Pass the award onto 7 bloggers that I love.

3. Tag those bloggers to let them know they are now Queens too (and link back to the Queen who tagged you).

Seven Awe-Summm Things About Me (a trial for someone whose blog contains "inadequate" in the title...

1. I am starting over after seven years in a bad marriage, and despite every reason to...I didn't give up on it. And now, I am in a great marriage!

2. I gave birth to a human being. Yeah! I know! It's incredible.

3. I am learning how to shop sales after a lifetime as a snobby shopaholic. That's right, I can now admit to shopping at Kohl's.

4. I am training to run a half-marathon in October. And I'm that makes me awe-summm and stupid!

5. I often think in foreign languages. When I lay awake at night and my mind is racing, I like to translate my thoughts to French or Spanish.

6. I can say the alphabet backwards in under 5 seconds. (Something I learned to do while laying sleeplessly in bed).

7. I have gone down two sizes since January...and I am still shrinking!

And now, for the nominees for Queen of All Things Awe-Summm...

Check them out. They each have a lot to offer and are really entertaining.


  1. You are lovely! And that's so interesting that you translate your racing thoughts to other languages. Do you think it's a way of dealing with stress? It's so interesting how we all have different funny things we do in those situations.

    Thank you for the shout-out, my dear!

  2. Thank you for the nomination! You are a darling. I will work on this after the holiday. xoxo

  3. Erin, you have gotten so many followers, in so little time. I am truly astounded! =) It took me foreeeeever to get 13 readrs, and like I said, I don't even think all of them read me!

    Thanks for the award, I'll get to it.
