Wasn't it Sally Field who said at the Academy Awards one year during her acceptance speech something to the effect of: "You Like Me, You Really Like Me."

Today I'd like to adopt those infamous words of Ms. Field because there's at least one person out in the blogosphere who likes me and it's Caffe over at Caffeinated OC Mommy!  Thanks, Caffe for awarding me this:

Of course with such a prestigious award comes some rules.  And although I've been known at times to break the rules, I'm going to be a good girl and follow these.  

So here are 7 things you don't know about me:

1)  I love to gamble!  Whenever I go into a casino and hear the "ding, ding, ding" of the slot machines, I get all giddy inside!  
2)  In high school I had a picture of Adam Ant on my bedroom wall and if you entered my room without knocking, you might have just caught me up on my dresser giving that poster a smooch or two.
3)  I have three tattoos...not telling you where they are though!
4)  I used to do theatre sports and was the only girl in an all guy theatre sports troupe.
5)  When I owned cats, I actually took them to the SPCA Photos With Santa...(whaaat? The pics are cute!)
6)  Way back in the early '90s a girlfriend and I took a vacation to Jamaica to a resort called "Hedonism"...  (we had no idea...seriously!)
7)  I've had various jobs so far in my adult life:  bank teller, court reporter, display stylist, barista, cruise consultant, office manager, and most important of all:  MOM!

I know, fascinating stuff!  And now I'm going to award 15 Mommy Bloggers whose blogs I love!

1) Diaries of a Grumpy Grateful Mom
2) The Preppy Girl In Pink
3) Things I Can't Say
4) a belle, a bean & a chicago dog
5) Mommy 2c
6) Buried With Children
7) Sellabit Mum
8) Dear Mommy Brain
9) Kludgy Mom
10) The Crunchy (Grouchy) Mommy
11) The Twisted Mummy Chronicles
12) Coffee Lovin Mom
13) Adventures In Extreme Parenting
14) Beautiful Spit Up
15) Airing My Dirty Laundry, One Sock At A Time

Phew!  That's a lot of links.

And remember to check out Caffe over at Caffeinated OC Mommy.  She's always brewing a fresh cup of controversy.

Oh girl you are too sweet! Thank you sooo much for the awesome award! Your 7 things list cracked me up. You seriously didn't know what Hedonism meant?? Haha... That's hilarious! I'm honored to be among the awesome Blogitas I do know and can't wait to checkout the ones I'm not yet familiar with. I'm always down for making new friends! Thanks again! :^)

Great blog! Yes, Sally Field did say that. I use that catch phrase on my blog for my followers.

The Preppy Girl in Pink said...

WOW! Thanks so much! I love awards!!!
First and foremost I must thank my husband for his support on my wish to start a blog. I must also thank my two daughters who helped me come up with name. And last but not least...all of the wonderful blog friends who stop by and show me love and support!
Now where is the after party?! ;-)
Seriously, thank you! I love this blogging world!!

Thanks for thinking of me!

So what exactly is a theatre sports group?

Grumpy Grateful Mom said...

Thanks girl! And congrats on your award. I do really like you! And I just happen to be a big fan of your awarder too. :) Theatre sports sounds interesting and hard. I used to love acting, but I was never very good at improv.
