" ... absolutely ma-am, I would love to sign your baby ..."

"Dear Eight Pound, Six Ounce, Newborn Baby Jesus, don't even know a word yet, just a little infant, so cuddly, but still omnipotent. I want to thank you for letting me get a
'Kreativ Blogger' Award
Danyelle at 'Myth Takes'!

Danyelle is one of the writers I've gotten to know who I wish lived near me so I can have writer friends to sit and talk with. She's a soft spoken, sweet ball of puffy cotton candy whose "writing voice" bursts onto the page with power and sharp contradiction to her real life demeanor. If you are a writer and looking for someone who will encourage you as a writer as well as expose her trials and process, go read some of her posts-In moments, you are not a lone writer-you have an incredibly talented authoress to share the journey with!
Thank you SO much for choosing me, D! I'm all warm and bubbly inside! I love you!
You are sunshine and Skittles! :)
Here are the rules to the award:
1. Thank the person who nominated you for this award.
2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
3. Link to the person who nominated you for this award.
4. Name 7 things about yourself that people might find interesting.
5. Nominate 7 Kreativ Bloggers.
6. Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate.
7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know they have been nominated.

Now Ya'll Know TOO Much About Me...You are now a National Security Threat!
1) This is my FAVORITE cupcake of all the ones I've seen!(It's from Pink Cake Box) My next baking adventure will be trying to make gum paste flowers like this peony!
2) I'm a little obsessed with watching videos that revel the "insides of Scientology"!
Here's Tory Magoo-She was a Scientologist for 30 years, and you should go watch her videos where she talks about what happened to her in there! It's SO interesting!
3) It makes me SO angry that I can't wear what I want at work. I really feel like all of my personality is drained out. I like wearing CRAZY awesome heals or saddle shoes with shorts and a fun sweater(like my Snoopy sweater) or a really cute vintage dress. I like fun purses too-I have a vintage 'transversion' bag I got at a resale shop in New Orleans that has sequins all over it and they make a scene with flowers, a sun, and butterflys-black bags are sad :( My life NEEDS to be in Technicolor like Katy's!!
Here's what I wore today for work. LAME!
I want to wear THIS!
And THESE!4) I hate ketchup and ALL seafood.
5) I miss Jasmine during the day. I've never been like that with a pet-I physically feel sad when I'm out, and when I get back-I go right to her and hug her cuz I think she missed me. She's a strange cat-Half tabby/half siamese. Siamese are kinda mean in my experience, so I thought she'd be that way-She's NOT! She's a "Lap Whore"-meaning she wants to sit with everyone, but is never annoying or mean about it. She fetches just like a dog, and her fur feels like very soft down feathers. She will turn the faucet on-drink-and then turn it OFF!! AND- She always smells like sweet tarts- I dunno why... Here's a VIDEO of her when she was little!

6) When I lay down at night, I bring my laptop and watch youtube videos of boring people cuz they help me fall asleep. Here's a link to one of my favs-He looks CRAZY, but his voice is like vocal NyQuil!
7) I LOVE Chelsea Handler! I watch her show, 'Chelsea Lately' every day!
And now...I nominate(Again-I don't live by rules, so I'm doing 3 noms instead of 7! ...cuz I say so! that's why! :)
1) DrollGirl - The random inner workings of a sour cherry flavored wonderwoman! Sometimes she does posts based on colors, sometimes they're about movies...or Fabio...or the debate over Rob Stewart's hotness...or way TMI nakedness...or Barbies in a vice! Lovin it, D!!! You rock my F*%$ing LIFE!!
2) Midtown Girl - Carrie Bradshaw level fashion majesty?! CHECK! Unprecedented peeps into dating life in the INCREDIBLE city of New York?! Check! Sass enough for the entire cast of 'Gossip Girl'?! Check!
MG- You are all that is Fashionably Fabulous!! :)
3) Newlyweds - If I could afford a personal chef/baker, I'd hire HER! Not only does she post pics and recipes of the INSANELY complicated recipes I could NEVER even attempt and make it look like just another Tuesday at Martha Stewart's House, she plants gardens and hatched two ADORABLE baby boys!! (Fun Fact: She's also RELATED to my BFF in real life- Kaylynn!! YAY!)

LOL You always make me smile. First, your work outfit is NOT lame. That's my style all the way. *snicker* You would think I'm a very boring dresser, trust me. Snort! But you looked very chic, imo.

Also, your kitty sounds wonderful!!!

And that cupcake lookes SO delicious. Yum!!!

Congrats on the award!! You deserve it and you're right, Danyelle is a really strong writer. That's how I started reading her blog, when she won (on here?) a little contest for her writing. Anyways, Congrats to you both. :-)

Penny, you know how to make a person feel wonderful! I love getting to know you better. You are one of the most amazing bloggers I've ever had the privilege of knowing. :) And a wonderful friend to boot. TX isn't that far from PA, right? ;-)
