And the Liebster Award Goes To...

Having had only a few hours sleep the night before, yesterday was a very long day.  All day I found myself thinking of how neglected my bed pillows have been this week, and how I planned to make up for it last night.  Despite being super busy dealing with dumbasses all day at work and wishing that there was some sort of aptitude test that could be given to individuals before they were given a voice box, the day drug on and on.  The clock ticked slowly, and then slower still; the sound almost hypnoticly causing a fluttery dance between my upper and lower eyelid as I struggled to keep them apart.  When the work day was finally coming to an end I had visions of going home and engaging in some quality drool time with my pillows, but my mother and a friend hijacked my evening requiring me to come eat Mexican food and drink margaritas (I know, it’s a tough life).  By the time I got home, put kids to bed, and took a minute to sit down and unwind, I was seriously battling fatigue.
Once again my pillows were calling my name, one saying “Blondie, come let me hold your head in a tender embrace as you drift off to sleep.”  My leg pillow saying, “You know how you love me between your legs.” I was clearly hearing them in my head, but was disturbed by the chiming of my phone with an email of a new comment to my blog from Roe (I LOVE comments). 

My spirits were lifted and I was refreshed when I discovered that Roe, incredibly funny author of the blog “My Upside Down Life”, had given me the Liebster Award in her pick of 5 favorite bloggers.  Yay me!  So today, feeling extremely honored, I am charged with accepting the award and passing it to five of my favorite bloggers.

I would like to thank Roe for bestowing on me such a fabulous honor, and for lifting my spirits after an otherwise long day.    Roe is a kindred spirit who’s blogs always bring me smiles and laughter.  I love her observational humor about everyday life and her quirky, sometimes smartass take on it. 

The Liebster Award is meant to be given to bloggers with less than 200 followers.  In passing the torch, I’ve been thinking and reading all morning and I pass the Liebster Award to the following bloggers:

RachRiot.  Rach is a fabulous person with a great sense of humor.  I’ve yet to read anything she’s written that I don’t find myself laughing aloud and sharing with my friends and family.

Because Nobody Likes Mondays.  Heather is very awesomely funny, and you don’t have to enter a damn captcha to comment (I hate those things)!

Who Woulda Thought.  Kevin is a 34 year old man, and in addition to being funny, has a great way allowing me to see things from a man’s perspective.

The Incoherent Ramblings of aMoose.  I just discovered this blog, but it is already becoming one of my favorites as I swear when I read her blog, I wonder if there’s a camera in my house and she’s writing about my life, or if our sons are identical twins by different parents.

Two Too Smart, SmartassMommies.  Another blog that always makes me laugh.

  1. Thanks Blondie and congrats to you!! And I removed those damn things from my comment section, I hate them, I can never figure out what they say.

    1. Thank you! I so hate those things when I'm trying to comment.

  2. Me pointing to your blog on my dashboard-See this woman? She is me and her son is you!

    Spawn- Great! A cohort to help me achieve world domination!

    Seriously Blondie, these two can NEVER EVER meet!

    Thank you so much for the award and a big CONGRATS to you, because I already bloody love this blog!

    1. Yes, our penis people must be kept apart at ANY cost. We must maintain what little bit of domination we have left!

  3. We accept!!!! First of all, we'd like to thank the Academy for this nomination . . . . Oh wait, wrong speech. Sorry, I must be wearing my gown from THAT night again. My bad. And remarkably, we even managed to get the link back to your blond self in a reasonable time frame. It should be very easy for us to narrow down the other five "micro" bloggers that really make us giggle since the entire blogging universe is just so small. Man, if only there were more of us . . . .

    1. Awesome! Thank you. I think the hard part is narrowing down to the 5. Though what I love about these awards are how they point you to great blogs you might never have discovered otherwise.

  4. Coooool! I have to say I've had a pretty shitty day, it started with forgetting my vitamins (read about it later). I accept my award honorably and say thank you to you Blondie for this!

    You like me, you really like me...on wait I'm not Sally Field...dammit now I need to watch Rambo to gain that piece of masculinity back.

    But seriously, made my day today!

  5. Wooo hoooo! Glad I could brighten your day! Now you get to make someone else's day. We'll pretend we're virtual hippees and share the love!

  6. Aww Blondie! What a nice surprise! I feel the same about you, chica! This is an awesome idea.. hmm it's gonna be a tough one to narrow down.. xo
