BUSTED! I'm a Blog Stalker with Books! **UPDATED!**

*UPDATE! If you've already read this post, please scroll to bottom to the UPDATE! Exciting news down there!! (For you new visiting folks, please contain your excitement until you read through the posty...thanks!)

Can you see me blushing? (pink cheeks, shy smile)

I was busted. For Blog Stalking. Apparently, the word is out that I travel around blogland like a drifter in search of a bloggy place to leave my comments. I move from blog to blog littering comments here and there. And you know what? Someone out there liked that! That's right they did! They LIKED my comments and my stalking! They liked it so much that they awarded me this!


Yep! I'm a Super Stalker! A big hug and thanks to my dear sweet friend, Pam over at Country Mouse, City Mouse for sending this my way! (and I've been blogging for less than 30 days! I am honored!) Now, I have to pass this on to another Super Stalker. I nominate LORI at A DOUBLE SHOT OF ESPRESSO. She flings her lovely comments all throughout the land of Blog with joy! Now go and bestow this upon a stalker of your choice, oh Super Stalker!

Also, the very lovely Tori C. over at The Sweet Jelly Bean awarded me the Honest Scrap Award! Thank you, Tori! (here's a link to my post for the Honest Scrap answers!) I have to tell you that Tori's blog The Sweet Jelly Bean is adorable! Scoot on over there when you're all done here to check out her delicious delights! Let me tempt you with some...Not Your Mama's Snickerdoodles..mmmm...Milk Chocolate Covered Oreos with all sorts of toppings! yummmm...lots of goodies over there! Link to her Etsy shop while you're there too!


Here are the rules for the award:

The honorees are to:

A) List 10 honest things about yourself - and make it interesting, even if you have to dig deep!

B) Pass the award on to 7 bloggers that you feel embody the spirit of the Honest Scrap

Here are the 7 Award nominations....

*Kate at Home is Where My Heart Is

*Tracy at Diary of Sweet Nothings

*Lisa at Mama's Smitten

*Lori at A Double Shot of Espresso

*lagirl at Sweet Tea

*Seeker at Talk Talk Talk

*Misadventurous Mommy at My Mommy Said

I can't wait to read your Honest Scrap! Thanks again, Tori C.! I am feeling the bloggy love lately and it feels lovely!

Now, as mentioned in the title, I am a blog stalker with BOOKS! That's right, lovies...books! My bloggy buddies Cammie and Kel over at Girls With Books have invited me to be a contributor to their book blog! We will be reviewing books, sharing books we are reading, and overall just spreading our book loving joy with all of blogland! We would love to have you come over, sit for bit, read our bloggy and grab a button when you leave. (cause we know you'll want to come back and the button makes it easy for you!) Please come visit and of course, comments are very, very welcome (and followers too!) We look forward to having you over there!

Final thought for the day...what would your blog really look like if you didn't correct your typos? Mine would be a hot mess! The other day I tried to type "fact" probably 10x and I kept typing "fart"! Now for my family members reading this, that is hilarious. They know that I cannot even say that word out loud! I just can't do it! Which is why my subconscious mind probably kept making me type it over and over...that word is trying desperately to get out of my mouth! I prefer "toot" or something more ladylike. Just typing it is making me feel weird! I'm such a goofball! blog would be completely unreadable with all my typos! What about yours?

Now go and check out the linkies in this post! You'll be glad you did!

Happy Thursday! **UPDATE! I just published my first review over at Girls with Books! Scootie on over and read it!!!

p.s. Chilly...watching American Idol last night: "Minnie, are my ears bleeding?" (That's right, people! The nerdanderthal actually became evolved enough to ask me a question during Idol! Good for you, Chilly! His ears weren't bleeding, thank heavens, but mine definitely were after listening to some of those poor souls!)

For some reason I can't post a comment on Girls with Books, but....."Dead on" with your review! These books are "Fangtastic"! They are a great escape from reality which all moms need once in awile!

p.s. Did you get it? FANGtastic and DEAD on?

Just so you all know, we all know when Minnie "fluffs" because she runs out of the room in hysterics! She can't say the word, but she is human!

Just so you know, dear friends..."Anonymous" isn't so anonymous! That would be my dear sister who is the world's biggest methane offender! Can you say Aunt Eeeewwww?????

Whooo's 100?

I am! This is my 100th post!

To say I am astonished and humbled by the incredible support of my blog from fellow bloggers, friends and family would be an ginormous understatement! I am truly, deeply grateful that ya’ll stop by and visit me! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

(I had this scheduled to post at midnight, but for some reason, it didn't! I got up to check it about 1:30 am and discovered blogger's mischief! Sorry if you came by then!)

All righty then…do you have a cup of coffee, hot cocoa, tea, martini? How about a masseuse? You’re gonna need it! It’s my 100th post and by the time you are done reading it, you’ll probably feel as old and tired as Rip Van Winkle! You know me and my long winded rambley-ness! (....the giveaway is here..I promise!)

So, this is what I’ve come to know about blogging in the last 100 days….

Blogging is like taking a vacation to a place you never k…

For Gigi ... A Letter to Heaven

Today there is a happy celebration in Heaven as it would be my beautiful grandmother Gigi's birthday.  Gigi was definitely the most important influence on my life and it became crystal clear to me how deeply when I was asked to write the eulogy for her memorial service a few years back.  I decided to send a letter directly to God explaining what amazing treasure was on it's way.  It is a letter meant to bring smiles and giggles.  Thanks in advance for allowing me to share that special letter with you today as we honor her memory:)

A Wee Drop of Irish (or Cloudy With a Chance of B*tchy Part 2)

Happy St. Patrick's Day! How about a wee stroll down memory lane?  Thank you to everyone who messaged me about sharing this blast from the past again this year:)  (yes, Maureen...I do read your emails too!)  Even though it was originally posted in 2009, not too much has changed (says Dawn in her "I can't believe I have PMS every single year at this same time"  happy (think Pharrell singing "Happy") voice.  So grab a cup of Irish coffee, Jameson whiskey, Guinness or whatever suits your fancy on this fine St. Patrick's Day and let me share a tale of whimsy with you.  (and may the luck of the Irish be with you if you come my way today!  Don't say I didn't warn you!)   

Oops! What's she doing here again? Wasn't she just here a month ago? UGH! The nerve! We had so much "fun" last time she was here, didn't we? 

Well, since I have a full day of Irish activities planned, I guess I better be gettin' my Irish on....hmm...let's s…
