My Heart Goes Pitter-Patter

I have received awards! Plural! Yesssss. You people like me. You really, really like me. Finding My Weigh has awarded me The Beautiful Blogger award and One Lovely Blog Award (blush, blush)! You must check out Finding My Weigh if you haven’t done so already. She is a fabulous writer and speaks from the heart.

As part of the Beautiful Blogger award, I must state 7 things about myself. Which I will do, even though you know many things about me possibly on a TMI-level (that is teenager/texting/modern-speak for Too Much Information in case you’re like me – a Carrie Bradshaw of modern technology).

1. I am freakishly tall. The last time I was measured by a nurse, I was 6’1”. I usually just tell people that I am 6 feet tall, but you better believe that I use that extra inch when I need to enter my weight on a BMI calculator.

2. Now that my child is getting older, I am learning to love my cat again.

3. Now that my child is getting older, I am trying to figure out the New Me. You are on this journey with me. Isn’t it fun?!

4. I think that very often people take themselves way too seriously.

5. I believe that all the people in your life exist to teach you things about yourself.

6. I think that one of the funniest words in the English language is “fart.” (Come on, admit it, you just chuckled.)

7. I do not think the world is going to hell in a hand basket. I think that everything is going to be alright.

Now I will award these awards to 15 bloggers in order to pass on bloggy love and build good on good. (That’s the way the universe works, people. Or at least, that’s a secret I’ve been told.) I will award this to people I have not yet passed awards on to, but if you have already received this award, forgive me and just bask in the love. These are all blogs that I have greatly enjoyed discovering and reading!

I thought you would give your brother's blog, Scott & Stupid Cat, an award! =) Congratulations, Kristy. I miss you. Mom

Kristy said...

The first anonymous comment must be. . . Natalie? :) Mom, I considered putting "My brother, Scott, is an asshole" as one of my 7 things, but then decided against it, because it is, after all, all about me. :)

You are a very funny, sweet, lovable woman! Mom

Krista said...

Hey... we have something in common... my brother is an asshole too! LOL! (maybe yours has a hidden meaning... mine doesn't. he's just an ass. LOL!)

Congratulations and thank you very much!!! :o) *basking*

Sarah said...

Wow!!! Thanks sooooo much! Totally basking in the love! :) I particularly love factoid #2 - my husband teases me about not loving our dog anymore now that we have a son. I'll let him know that I now have proof that one day I will once again feel warm fuzzies for our poor, poor pug. ;)

Veronica said...

Thankyou so much!!

Marilyn at live first, write later said...

Thank you Kristy. Kisses to you! I found a rejection letter in my inbox this morning, then your message, and you've totally redeemed my day!

I will follow the rules when I get a chance, also looking forward to checking out your other recipients' blogs. Have a beautiful day.

Lady Mama said...

Thanks for the award! I like the one about people in your life existing to teach you things about your life.

Zeemaid said...

thanks so much. hey I wish I was that tall.. my husband is 6'4 and loves to put everything on the very top shelf and then laugh at me... yup. ;)

Lori said...

awww thankyou so much!! I don't think the world is going to hell in a hand basket either- I'm a member of the "Keep calm and carry on" brigade.

Rita/Fighting Off Frumpy said...

Wow, thank you Kristy!! :) I LOVE awards - they make my day! I've proudly displayed the awards and a link to your blog in my sidebar "trophy case" and someday - SOMEDAY - I will do a thank-you post for the awards I've received. (I'm so behind.)

And for the record ... I TOTALLY agree about "fart." But I guess seeing as I have three boys, that's a plus. :)

MommieDaze said...

Thank you so much for the award! I agree with you about people taking themselves way too seriously. You gotta be able to laugh at yourself, and everything around you to get through life.

So Now What? said...

Hello!! Thank you so much for the award. For some reason, my comments sometimes go to Junk mail and I totally missed this. When I get my shite together, I will find those 7 things. Love your blog too. It is beautiful and yes, I think the word fart is hilarious. I was never allowed to say it as a kid, and even though I know it's wrong, we use it with out kids all the time. A lot of farting goes down with 5 of us in the house and one toilet :)

Michelle said...

Aww...you're so sweet! I loved learning more about you.

Thanks for the awards. I realized today while cleaning out my email box that I never made it over here in the midst of my SITS day, cross country travels, sister's wedding, and kid's spring break. So sorry! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I truly appreciate it!

Its such as you read my thoughts! You seem [url=http://www.longchampsacpliage-fr.com]prix sac longchamp[/url] to know so much approximately this, like you wrote the e book in it or something. soldes longchamp [url=http://www.longchampsacpliage-fr.com]piscine longchamp[/url] , I believe that you could do with a few p.c. to drive the message house a little bit, but instead of that, that is wonderful blog. A great read. I'll definitely be back.
