Adorable Blog Award!

Fabulous blogger extraordinaire (and my roomie for BOOBs 2.0 in Chicago), Stephanie, nominated me for the Adorable Blog Award.  Thanks Steph!
Rules of the Award
*Thank the person who gave you this award, and link back to them in your post.
*Tell us 10 things about yourself.
*Nominate your bloggers.
*Contact these bloggers, and let them know they received this award.

Ten Things About Me:
  1. I have secretly been wanting to mix a packet of crystal light into my Greek yogurt to see what it tastes like.  Then I saw that LeAnn just tried it with great results! I'm going to give it a try.
  2. I have another blog that I don't update very often called "Adventures With Pemberley".  It's just photos of my spoiled rotten cat. Yeah, I'm a card-carrying member of the crazy cat lady society...all I need is the bath robe covered in cat hair.
  3. I have a youtube channel.  I think videos show a lot more than the written word can show here on blogspot.  Give it a try.  Make a video and post it...pretty please?
  4. I still wake up every morning thinking the Fat Fairy waved her magic wand over me while I slept and I'm back to my pre-op weight of 256 lbs.
  5. I am counting down the days until Big Brother debuts on CBS in early July. It is my annual guilty pleasure of the summer.  Oh the drama!  By the way, anybody watching the Bachelorette? That's a hot mess.
  6. I am starting to rediscover my self-confidence and come to terms with my invisibility cloak being gone.  Someone said to me yesterday "you are someone who is not afraid to be who you are."  Yep, that's the old me that I remember...hopefully she's back for good.
  7. I am confused by the fact that the spell check feature on blogspot does not recognize the word "blogger" or "blogspot."  Go figure.  I highly recommend that spell check option by the way.
  8. I wish I was in Orlando, FL this week...I could visit family and also attend the Annual American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) conference - the big shindig get-together for alll the bariatric surgeons.  Think of all the questions that I could ask!? Talk about a target rich environment!
  9. I am going to save so much money $$ on air conditioning this summer.  With my "fat blanket" gone, I'm always cold so I haven't had to turn on the AC once yet...and it's been in the low 80s here.
  10. I love the color pink. My iphone has a pink rhinestones cover..bling!  My Macbook has a bright pink cover. My fingernails are fuchsia pink.  It's time for a 12-step program intervention.
My nominees for the Adorable Blog Award:


  1. I absolutely love your cats name. I'm a huge P&P fan.

    I am not brave enough to do the vBlogs yet, though we'll see once I lose a bit more. Plus I think I'll need a better video camera for my PC.

    I'm so glad you're feeling more confident again with the lack of invisibility cloak. My support meeting tonight's topic is about coming to terms with your changing body. I think it will help.

    You are truly my inspiration. : ) (not to sound like crazy stalker chick)

  2. Wowowowow!! I'm getting all blushy here - thank YOU for the nomination for this wonderful award!!!

    And, you're not alone in your "pink-ness".. I'm sending you this comment with manicured pink nails - on a pink Dell computer! Haven't gotten the bling for my phone yet tho!~

    Thank you again!

  3. I'm hopelessly addicted to pink as well. All shades. Pale pink, hot pink, and anything in between. I will hereby confess I'm thrilled to hear there will be a new BB this summer. It's a guilty pleasure of mine as well. I usually can't watch it while it's on TV but after my boys go to bed I'll watch it on my laptop.

  4. I'm still laughing! Thanks for sharing Ten Things!

  5. Thank you so much for nominating me for the blog award. I appreciate it so much! :)

  6. "all I need is the bath robe covered in cat hair"

    I have several I can send you! Want a few "fuzzy" blankets too? :)

    You are going to be so busy dating before long (or taking martial arts classes to beat back all the suiters) that your cats are gong to miss you!

    In fact, what are those dummies waiting for? Have they not seen you?
