"Look at me kids, I'm winning! Stop the music, where's my ribbon?"

They love me! They really love me! Well, at least Kaylee does. She gave me a blogger award! ☺

I'm super stoked because Kaylee is way awesome, and the more I talk to her the more I love her. I'm thinking that a road trip/meet up is a definite must in the future. Anywho, I guess I have to share some pictures/stories about my life, so without further ado...

This is one of my favorite pictures of me. My Aunt Bonnie, the family comedian, had this wig and decided that I needed to wear it. And check out how stinking cute my mom was looking!

Here I am looking super cute and super 80s in this ginormous wicker chair. We have a nice collection of pictures just like this because my parents were too poor to pay for professional pictures. Why they thought a wicker chair would be an optimal backdrop, though, is beyond me. (I wish my hair was still this blonde.)

Please excuse the awful quality, but I'm pretty sure that this is the only picture known to man of me and the little sister being lovey with each other. Also, please excuse the massive buck teeth. This was taken pre-braces. 

I don't really have anything to say about this. Just bask in it's awesomeness. (That's me on the bottom left. People were constantly mistaking me for a boy. I don't blame them.)

This picture was taken for our church directory. Once again, bask in the awesomeness. I can't get over how 90s this is. Ugh, that vest...

This is me and the sister at the Frankenmuth River Place. The store we were at had the best collection of unique glasses, and we couldn't pass up the photo op.  Also, check out how freaking pale I am. I blend right in with my white coat. 

Our family is really into Halloween, so I couldn't resist putting this one up. I am crazy in love with that old lady mask of mine. I wear it almost ever year. The little sister was clearly less than thrilled to be a part of the family bonding time, but the fact that they even got her in the photo is a miracle in and of itself. 

So maybe I'm on the fast track to becoming a crazy cat lady... 

Well, that was a little piece of my life. Hope you enjoyed. Now is the part where I nominate two other bloggers who I find crazysexycool. First is Lorraine from Late to the Party. She's my brown twin, so I have to share the love. Prepare to be blown away by her comic genius. Second is Alison from Literary Crap. I used to read my heart out as a youngin', but as I got older my (self-diagnosed) ADD grew worse and worse, and my ability to sit through a book became less and less. Alison's book reviews make me want to become a reader again.

Day 13 - A song that is a guilty pleasure:

At first I wasn't sure where to go with this. Do I add a song that's cheesy, but that I still love? Do I add a song that goes against what I believe, but that I still love? Then it hit me. Brown Skin by India.Arie. "I can't tell where yours begins, I can't tell where mine ends." Not only am I not black, but I'm so far on the lower end of the white spectrum that it's not even funny. I always feel slightly embarrassed when I sing along (and sing along do I ever), but it's just so dang good.


  1. I am totally down for a meet up! It would be a giant MI blogger love fest.

    In fact, that's what we should call it.

  2. AH!! My mom had a wicker chair! The picture of you in the wig = Awesome. The family picture where you look so PROPer = amazing.

  3. I wish we still had it. It'd be ironically amazing, now. Lol And you are so invited (obviously) to the Giant MI Blogger Love Fest. :)

  4. Aww the pictures are all so cute! My fav one is the Holloween pic :D Yeah I agree, you look super duper cute in the wicker chair pic! I need to read up on your blog still, but I am sure I'm gonna love it :)


  5. Congrats on the award!
    That Brownies picture brings back memories...I did Brownies, too.

    Which reminds me...when does cookie season start?

    Lorraine at Late to the Party is one cool lady.

  6. Bad news. Cookie season is over. Sorry if this ruins your day. ;)

  7. Ah, thanks! Reading kinda rocks, so I'm glad to know that I'm inspiring you to read!
