Lookee Lookee What I Got!!!

excellent

The faire Ivanhoe handed this to me today! How cool is that?!? Of course I’d like to thank my darling husband, my adorable and feckless two boys, my many bloggie friends, both new and old and of course, life itself for making me the person that I am and giving me the willingness to tell anyone that will listen what’s on my mind. And thank you readers for following right along – feel free to comment from time to time if the mood strikes you 😉

And don’t forget to check out Ivanhoe’s blog. She’s from Prague and now living here in the states. How neat is that??

The Rules: By accepting this Excellent Blog Award, you agree to award it to 10 more people whose blogs you find Excellent Award worthy. You can give it to as many people as you want but please award at least 10. You deserve this! Feel free to award people who have already been awarded.

I humbly and graciously pass along this E for Excellence to the following:

  • Ampersander Bound – she’s a fellow LWLer, a great photographer and is currently keeping me enthralled with her NaBloPoMo March lists.
  • Beyond the Map – her writing will touch your heart its that potent and insightful.
  • Geggie over at So…What Else, What Else, What Else? – hang round this chick long enough and you too will fall head over heels in love with Burts Bees.  And man, her cooking and the way she experiences dining out makes me want to buy her dinner!
  • Sizzle Says – she’s got a great outlook on life and well, let’s face it, who wouldn’t want her as their landlord?
  • Tears in My Coffee – she’s moving on in her life and nearly ready to leave point A for point B.  She’s got some exciting times ahead of her.

I’m going to stop at five (yeah, yeah, I know it says 10).  Most of the blogs I read lately are more business focused, so I don’t want to pass out this award to all of the non-biz blogs I read at once.  I’d like to savor it and share the wealth a bit at a time.  Plus, I’d actually like you guys to stop by and visit with these gals a bit.  They really are some cool chicks.  So I’ll add my next five sometime down the road…when you least expect it! 😉

It’s Party Time! WootWoot!

Ultimate Blog Party 2008

Welcome to my party, um the Ultimate Blog Party! I wish I could do something, oh.my.god. amazing, but sadly, I’m still a little sick *sigh* So sadly, no cocktails from me. But I can offer you a tasty cuppa tea and some chocolate chip cookies if you’re so inclined. And well, party pro that I am, I won’t let something as a three week-long headcold slow me down! Just keep reading along as the days go on. My doc assures me I’ll be better in not time flat 😉

Let me tell you a little about myself…I’m one of the few non-moms participating. Well, actually, I am a mom, but to the four-legged kind of kids – my handsome tuxedo cat and my feisty little mutt. And as to be expected, both are well loved and some might even say, spoiled. I decided to participate in UBP because I thought it would be a great opportunity to find some new blogs and make some new bloggie friends.

I’m a 30-something, stay-at-home, work-from-home, wife in the greater Los Angeles area. I’m a former disk jockey and teacher (not at the same time) and I’m in the process of launching my own business (thanks to Ladies Who Launch), so I tend to talk about that. A lot. I’m an avid reader, though most of the time, I tend to forget to mention what I’m reading. We go to a lot of concerts and sometimes I get to take pictures. Other times, I get to meet the performers – though not always. I love to take pictures and up until recently, I was a regular participant in Wordless Wednesday.

Here are a couple of my favorites…

My bloggie friend Geggie is doing 2 truths and a lie, so I thought I’d copy her play along also. Below you will find 4 true facts about me and 2 lies. It’s your job to guess which is which. Please share your thoughts in the comments. And now, a little more than you ever wanted to know about me…

    1. I’m great friends with my husband’s last ex-girlfriend.
    2. I’ve done phone sex to make a quick buck.
    3. I actually know some people that can take care of that for you (she says in euphemisms).
    4. I’ve partied with Bruce Springsteen.
    5. My husband I have invested in my best friend’s haunted, ghostie business.
    6. I’ve had a couple of my amateur photos published.

      So now I just need to find that Mr. Linky thing-a-ma-gig so I can get this show officially on the road. Keep reading along, I promise, I’m a cool chick.

      I look forward to meeting all of you!!

      ETA: Please feel free to stick around a while – I even have two good reasons to try and entice you…1) I’ll be posting the answers to my Two Truths & a Lie from above and 2) this blog really isn’t all that old and it wouldn’t take you all that long to poke around – maybe check out my Welcome! Welcome! for some more insight into this theory.

      UPDATE: You can find the answers to my 2 truths and a lie over here.  I’ll come back later today and check and see if anyone guessed correctly.  Now,  I must run…

      Did someone mention prizes??? It was hard to choose my favorites, but these seems super useful to me.

      I also think these are all fun-sounding as well: 20, 21, 36, 39, 41, 60, 67, 70, 91 – so difficult to chose.
