holy toledo batman!

Just so you know this Friday I had a very great post ready to go about bad habits and then POOF all these awards showed up!!! So before I am accused of hoarding the awards I decided today we'd just have another fun day!! Enjoy!

Kimberly Franklin awarded me the Blogger Buddie Award! She is super awesome and if you have yet to check her blog out you should be ashamed of yourselves!!! FOLLOWER HER NOW... no pressure!


1.Nicole over at One Significant Moment at a Time is fabulous!!! An awesome Buddie for sure!!! You must visit her blog!
2.Shelley at Stories in the Ordinary is an awesome friend!! I love her!
3.Kimberly Franklin is always commenting on my stuff... it's kind of annoying! (just kidding nothin' but love!)
4.Carolyn V. is an amazing blogger and I am fortunate to call her my buddie!


Shelley awarded me the fabulous Supportive Commentor Award! Shelley is the sweetest, another must follow blog!

1.Jai Josh is an awesome commentor!!!
2.Summer is one of my favorite bloggers!!!
3.Sarahjayne over at Writing in the Wilderness always leaves me sweet words!
4.Tywo at the Purple Fairy says nothing but lovely things!
5.Crystal over at write because you must is the sweetest ever!!!
6.Shannon O'Donnell over at Book Dreaming is amazing! If you haven't checked out her blog you must!!!


Summer awarded me the Soulmmate Award!!! She totally rocks my socks off!!! I love reading her blog!


This award originated with Christi Goddard at A Torch in the Tempest and is one part gift, one part social experiment! Fun!

The rules:
1. Choose five followers/commenters that 'get' you
2. Write something fake (preferably not too mean) about them
3. Link to them, and link back to this post to comment your receipt of the award.

From Christi,


"This is by no means a popularity thing. It was hard to choose five people, but I still love everyone. But from reading the blogs of these followers, I think we share a common vibe of strangeness. That isn't a rule requirement for who they choose, of course. Maybe they choose five people that 'get' the mystery behind public shaving, for example."


Without further ado, here are some things you may not know about the following people:

1.Carolyn V. & I went to vegas and relived The Hangover
2.Kristin and I recently started a band, she's the lead guitarist and I'm the drummer
3.Lisa & Laura are belly dancers by day and ninja's by night
4.Christine won the competition for whitewater rafting last year in colorado. Prize: $10 gift card to Starbucks!
5.Summer recently had a guest spot on Criminal Minds. Dr. Reed had a serious crush on her. Damn Summer you're a lucky girl!

Yes I realize I linked the person who linked me but I couldn't help myself she's too fun!!

Crystal Awarded me the Prolific Blogger Award, The Scribbler Award and Silver Lining Award!!! Look at this girl handing out awards left and right!!! Also receiving them obviously! See I think this shows how fabulous she is! Check her out!

1.Michelle over at Southern City Mysteries totally rocks!
2.Amber never has a dull moment! Especially with her TMI Thursdays!!!
3.Talli Roland has such a fun blog!
4.Natalie at the Sound of Rain always has an awesome blog!!!
