A Limited Edition

Hey Loves,

Yesterday I posted that I was celebrating my one year anniversary on WP. I was also thrilled to have 300 followers. So, today, I’m sharing with you my #300 because I can’t get enough of him. He’s mysterious, kind, open, unique, adventurous, travels and is a remarkable writer. when he writes, he not only writes from his heart but from deep down into his soul. He’s sharing so much of himself. Many of my favorite characteristics wrapped up into one package in this person…this blog. He makes me want to dive right into it for hours, days, weeks and go way back to find out more. Please go visit him and introduce yourselves. Thank you Tarnished Soul for following me and spilling so much of yourself with us on your blog. Pretend we’re drinking Manhattan’s at a pub somewhere and hold your glass up…Cheers my new friend to many more posts and to your limited edition 🙂

Smiley Thumb

While I was on vacation this week on the gulf my friend T. Wayne nominated me for a new award. The Smiley Thumb award was created by David from the Chape blog, and I was given the nomination by https://joyfulprocessblog.com/  and let me just say, I feel like I’ve known him twenty + years. He’s genuine, sincere, caring, funny and single ladies, he’s absolutely adorable! Everyone, please check him out. His music taste is superb. Thank you again T. Wayne for the nomination!

As with any award, there are rules (always rules!). The rules for this one are as follows:

  • include the photo of the Smiley Thumb award. (Done!)
  • thank the person who nominated you and provide a link to their blog. (Done!)
  • tell us what makes you smile.
  • nominate as many bloggers as you like.
  • include these rules in your post.

Okay. That seems simple enough.

What makes me smile:

  • Comments from all of you on my blog. I look forward to meeting, laughing, getting to know each of you. It means the world to me when you read/comment on my posts.
  • My hubby and mutt 🙂
  • The Beach! I hope to retire in many years to become a beach bum. I belong there!
  • RAOK – I’m a firm believer in random acts of kindness. I try to do some act of RAOK once a week. If I can bring a smile to someone’s face that’s having a shitty day, it makes me smile in return.
  •  Sarcasm and wittiness! I live for this stuff!
  • Music – I don’t know what I would do without music. It gets me through the day and has been my soulmate my entire life.

My nominees for this award are chosen below. They may or may not accept, but here goes nothing:

Another Favorite

Jon Beckett is quite talented and genuine. I love his style of writing about his day to day occurrences. If you were to ask him about himself he would comment that he’s rather boring but I think otherwise. I love a real blog that tells about the lifestyles and everyday routines. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed our conversations and his take on books, movies, techy stuff which I know nothing about. I’m sad that he’s left WP but he has his own website/blog. Check him out! Enjoy loves!

Introducing A Favorite

So, I’ve been meaning to introduce and give a shout out to one of my favorites for some time now. I’ve been slacking a bit on my reblogging, etc. lately. Call me selfish because it’s true. I get so consumed with my own issues, highs, and lows and my own posts that I don’t share enough of you with my followers.

This little jewel is as real as you can get. She suffers with mental health challenges but always tries to see the bright side. I love that she shares so much of herself with us. There’s something unusually unique and beautiful about her soul. It’s almost as if her readers can see right through her and appreciate her realness. She’s witty, sarcastic, humorous, caring, and most of all I’m happy to call her my friend.

She’s not aware of this but she’s taught me a bit about mental illness. Although sometimes I’m rushed and don’t comment or hit like I’m reading her trials and obstacles.

You know those 2015 reviews that everyone was sharing and posting? This Doll was my top viewer and commented the most on my blog. I appreciate her so much. I can always count on her to be honest and very real with me and gives me a laugh at least three times a week.

Please give her a look. She’s pretty extraordinary I must say.

Sharing Good Stuff

Seeing as I’m a bit under the weather and have been carrying around a box of Kleenex everywhere I go today I thought I’d share some blogs that I’m currently loving. Also I’ll be sharing some of my older stuff tonight and tomorrow too for those of you that are a bit new to my blog. Until I’m recovered here’s some delightful blogs you should check in on. Pour yourself a cup of coffee, a shot of tequila, maybe a sip of moonshine, a glass of wine or possibly two tablespoons of Nyquil like myself? Either way, get comfy, relax and enjoy!

#1. Jonathon blows me away. He’s real, honest, and heartfelt. He’s sharing his everyday life with you in his blog. He’s not your average daily personal blogger. His words reel you in and whether he realizes it or not he keeps you sort of on the edge of your seat wanting more. He’s the complete opposite of myself. He cycles daily from here to there and has a brilliant career, a “techy kinda guy” and has three daughters and is just very real to me. Check him out!

#2. Itsgoodtobecrazysometimes
– Always commenting sarcastically to my blogs and I love her for it! Uplifting, fun, and feels like she could be my sister? Check out this blog she posted full of inspirational blogs. I love shares obviously!

https://itsgoodtobecrazysometimes.wordpress.com/2015/12/05/inspirational-links-4/comment-page-1/#comment-2835

#3. A Pondering Mind
Come on! Did you just read those three little words above? I had to follow this guy. He is a ponderer and I feel like he’s a life long friend to me. You see, I’m not one to watch the news. The media tends to only show the negative and also sometimes blows things way out of proportion so I’m a sceptical when it comes to the news. This guy keeps me informed with pictures and quotes. I get a daily dose from him each day and I look forward to it every single day. When my notification pops up with his name I’m on it! He’s my news anchor 🙂

#4. Sepultura13
Of course I’m a huge fan of randomness as that’s one of my tags and categories that I use obsessively because I’m ping-ponging all over the place. This blog is outstanding and full of laughter, truth, quotes, and is a firm believer in “sharing is caring.”

Something Good

This Monday sucked balls….I’m over it. It’s not like me to whine, bitch, moan or complain much but I’m going to be selfish and tell you a little about today. But, I promise I’m leading up to something good.

Our system crashed at work and it lost everyone’s time from last week. That means it has to be re-entered and recalculated and so forth. A certain company didn’t show up to deliver our packages and also stated we refused packages last Friday which is a lie. My hubby is out of town so that just makes me sad because he’s my best friend and I love him and miss him. Then I settle into watch some TV on my comfy beautiful sofa and my dog pissed all over it so I basically laid in his piss not knowing. Disgusting. After cleaning it up and showering I grabbed my crack which is a secret stash of Laffy Taffy and head down here to my office to see what’s up with WP. Laffy Taffy makes everything so much better.

Let me just first say that the ultimate compliment here is when someone shares your blog. I never expect that, EVER. I don’t think what I’m blogging is really worthy of sharing but if it makes someone feel better, laugh, believe in themselves or makes them feel anything at all, it seriously makes me warm and fuzzy inside. So when I checked WP this evening and found that my sweet friend Michelle had nominated me for some Liebster award, it genuinely made my Monday that sucked balls so much fucking better!!! I’m not much on the award stuff but I am sharing her “About” below and I would love for you to check her and Moose out.

I would do this award thing but I would much rather share with you blogs that I enjoy one at a time instead of in one blog with a list. I just think when I share them one at a time it puts them in the spot light. All of you deserve the spotlight if you ask me. 🙂

For now, I introduce my buddies Michelle & Moose (Thanks Ya’ll for making my day!)

Can’t Get Enough – Addictive

Hey Loves,

Today I want to share with you a few blogs I’ve been obsessed with lately. I find myself waiting impatiently for the next post like a drug. Yes, they’re that spellbinding. Some are the opposite of myself and something new I’m not familiar with which makes it that much more exciting for me.

I’ve listed them below and there’s quite a variety. Please stop over and check them out as they definitely are captivating. I’m new to this meet and greet blogging but I’m all about sharing. Please feel free to drop a link below of your favorite blog you’ve written or if you have a favorite blogger that you would like to share here with me and my followers please do.

https://jazzyoutoo.wordpress.com/2015/11/05/joe-lovano-dave-douglas-sound-prints-sprints/

Jazz You Too – I’m embarrassed to say this but I’ve never really listened to jazz before until I came across this blog. It offers a wide variety of jazz artists and this person knows jazz. I’m hooked in the worst way. I have to listen to something from this blog every morning while I’m getting ready for work. It really sets the tone for my day. You’ll be strung out for days after hearing some of these beats…..Snapping your fingers and thinking you can scat….You’re so welcome loves! Enjoy!

https://anewperspectiveperhaps.wordpress.com/2015/11/07/morning-mantra/

A New Perspective Perhaps – This little one is a bright ray of sunshine! I just adore her and her words. She’s uplifting, encouraging, funny, quick to interact with her readers. If you follow her blog you’ll feel like you have your own personal cheerleader out there. She builds people up. I love that about her. She shares her life experiences and you’re laughing along side of her. Quite entertaining and you just feel like you have a friend on your side reading her words.

https://wordpress.com/read/post/id/101534163/52

Doles Photography – I’ve actually shared this blog before but it’s so fascinating I wanted to share it again with you. The photographs are haunting. He has an unusual way of looking at things that mesmerize me. The shots are vivid and at times eerie. They command your attention instantly.

http://aopinionatedman.com/2015/11/05/daughter-mine/

HarsH ReaLiTy – This guy….I can’t even. He is so multi-talented. He is the Mick Jagger of blogging if you ask me. I’ve told him that I’m his #1 groupie. Ha! He really doesn’t need a shout out, he has over 55,000 followers but he is A-mazing. He’s a poet, comedian, father, son, friend, and although he’s a bit grouchy from time to time he’s the most gracious blogger I’ve ever seen. He shares his knowledge, helps new bloggers, encourages us and just cares a lot. Whether he likes it or not he actually has a big heart. I love everything about his blog. Even with as many followers as he has he ALWAYS takes the time to interact with them. Follow him, you’re in for a thrilling ride.

XOXO

One Lovely Blog Award

one-lovely-blog

I don’t normally do this sort of thing but my sweet and gracious friend Wendy nominated me and I’m honored to oblige. I adore her blog. You must check her out at http://wendysharesathought.com/about/

There are three rules with this One Lovely Blog Award…..

* Link the person that nominated you to this entry/post.

* Share seven things about yourself.

* Nominate some of your favorite bloggers.

So here goes……

1.) I cry when I hear the Star Spangled Banner.

2.) If you give me gummies I will love you long time.

3.) Love, Love, Love Rap and Hip & Hop

4.) I’m a dreamer. When I say dreamer, I mean one time I actually thought my homemade cookies were so damn good I could open up a bakery. Good God! Another time, I thought I could sell handmade cards. The other time I thought I could blog, Oh wait, that’s not a dream! I’m actually doing it. Not that it’s something HUGE (In my Trump voice) but it’s kinda big for me.

5.) I’ve never seen Star Wars – Gasp, Sigh, I know….Shame on me. Where the fuck have I been?

6.) I used to do some modeling locally when I was a teenager and in my early twenties. Never made it big but it was fun at the time.

7.) Dolls freak me out. Not Barbies but Dolls. The kind that the eyes move around or the baby dolls with their lips puckered or even the old classic ones. Any kind of doll or baby doll REALLY creeps me out.

So there you have it. A little about me. My nom’s are listed below. Do not feel like you have to oblige but I’d LOVE to read seven things about you! These bloggers listed below are quite intriguing and I’m sharing their “Abouts” so that you can get acquainted with each of them. To my nom’s, if you’re thinking “Nah, I’m not interested” Maybe think again, it gives your readers a piece of you that they might not know already.
