I got an award!!!
Well Hot Damn!! I got an award!!
It caught me totally off guard, I might add…
There I was, strolling along, minding my own bees-wax and reading through my bloggie friend Stef's blog at Mom-pirational and BAM!
There I was in big red letters…Jenn's Blogspot - My Daily Jenn-ism
An award!! Yayyyy!!! Damn good thing I showered AND brushed my teeth so I could pretty up for this award!
So, what to say – what to say?? Speech?? Hmmmm…. I’m not good at planning – so let’s just say how honored I am to even be considered for an award… and in my best Sally Field, “You LIKE me! You REALLY LIKE ME!!” Thank you for this Laine Blogger Award for Beauty. (Blushing)
I’m not good at rules – but I will follow them, since they are here and they’re actually pretty simple.
(1) answer the following 5 questions, and then
(2) pass the award onto five more amazing and beautiful bloggers, who I feel are beautiful in the blogging sense.
1. What is Your Current Beauty Obsession?
Beauty “obsession?” I’m not sure I’ve got one, to be honest. I see myself as a giant fashion faux pas. Since I have been asked & I am actually thinking about it – I’m really liking the specific to eye color, eye make up. I’ve got green eyes & I love that they now POP!
2. What is the One Beauty Item You Wish You Owned?
The one beauty item I wish I owned doesn’t actually exist. It’s a figment of my imagination… They are magic scissors. I can cut the fat off of my belly or my thighs or my butt and magically there is no evidence of a cut – only a perfect little tummy, thighs & tushie. No surgery, no needles – magic scissors! Yeah… That’s my wish. Doesn't it sound absolutely dreamy???
3. What is Your Favorite Topic To Read About?
I like suspense. Something that keeps me turning the page & on the edge of my seat. I really like James Patterson. He’s a quick read – he keeps me interested and I always love the story lines. A little nookie nookie, but no 50 shades of anything - a little murder, a little suspense. It needs to feel real to me. No flippin’ inner goddess or foil packets.
4. What Inspired You to Become a Blogger?
I love to write. I’ve been writing since elementary school and actually have a few unfinished books (yeah, I know – FINISH THEM). My girlfriend, Carrie, started a blog for her cook book (she is my first awardee below) and after much discussion, I decided to follow suit in my own direction. She encouraged me to get started & to stick with it. Thanks, Car. xxoo
This is mostly therapy for me. I went through some crap a while back & I noticed that writing it out made me feel better - all of it, the good, the not so good – the crazy. It was good to see it all out there in black and white, to see it as it was then get a grip on reality.
I enjoy knowing that my life experiences – no matter how incredibly screwed up some are – can actually touch and help another person. That to me is just awesome.
5. What nail polish are you wearing right now?
The almost perpetual French manicure. I just started getting my nails done again about a year ago. After several years of babies & housework, etc, I deserve it. It’s something that makes me feel pretty – even when I’m unshowered & have no make up on.
And now ....Drum Roll Please....
I pass this high honor onto....
Carrie’s Experimental Kitchen
Mod Mom Beyond IndieDom
Food Thoughts of a Chef Wannabe
Every one of these amazing bloggers has caught my eye for one reason or another... I wish I could send out 500 awards instead of just 5...
Thank you again, Stef!! Smoochies!!
