Smile! You Have Style!

Oops!  This post was supposed to go up on Friday... I'm not exactly sure what happened, but here it is if a little late!
~~~~~~~~~~
I'm en route to Wisconsin today (holla Cheeseheads!) so I thought this would be a great opportunity to spread some bloggy love, thanks to Artsy Chaos, who was awesome enough to award me the Stylish Blogger Award.  I know!  I was totally floored to receive such an honor!  So here are the stipulations:

1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award.  Thank you Artsy Chaos!  You're awesome!
2. Share 7 things about yourself.  Ohmygoodness, I don't know how I could possibly come up with 7 things you guys don't already know!  But I'll try. 
3. Award recently discovered great bloggers.  Yes!  My favorite part!  See below.  But let me say this to the awardees: I'm just giving this award to you because it's fun and I think your blogs rock!  If you don't want to pass it on, please don't feel any obligation.  It's really just my pleasure.
4. Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award!  Will do.

Seven completely random things I don't think you know, but you may:
~Speaking of may, that's my middle name.  May.
~My favorite snack is chips and salsa with a Diet Coke.
~I have a weird, inexplicable sort of crush on Elijah Wood.
~I don't like it when my green beans squeak in  my mouth.
~My first pet was a hamster named Splinter (after the rat in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles).
~When I was 19 I walked from Santa Barbara to Malibu.  I got bad blisters.
~My first vehicle was a little Ford Ranger.  That I totalled 8 months after I got my license.
Edit: I just went back to my other award accepting posts and I guess I already used the middle name thing.  Sorry.  But the segue works too good for me to go back and change it now.

The moment you've all been waiting for!  The winners of the Sylish Blog award... will be announced right after this commercial:


Just call me Ryan Seacrest, right?  So for real, here are my picks for the Stylish Blogger award!
Nikki Woo- The Home Guru
Mommy Wears Combat Boots
View From the Shoe

I don't know why I've gone this long and didn't even realize you had a blog! I am a dork. Love your blog. You are funny and real and cool. I think you should have a facebook link. I like those.

Always love hearing more about people! =)

I don't know why, but I guess the way I cook my green beans makes them squeaky!

Congrats and THANK YOU, THANK YOU, TO ALL MY MANY FANS WHO BELIEVED IN ME WHEN I WAS ONLY JUST SENDING EMAILS SAYING STUPID THINGS TO MY FRIENDS AND WONDERING IF OTHER PEOPLE WOULD LIKE TO HEAR THE STUPID STUFF THAT GOES ON IN MY HEAD, AND SO I TOOK THE PLUNGE INTO THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF BLOGGING ONLY TO FIND OUT THAT NOT ONLY AM I A CRAZY LADY WHO WRITES TOO MUCH ABOUT FOOD, AND A LITTLE ABOUT CRAFTS AND MORE ABOUT HER UNGRATEFUL CHILDREN, BUT, I AM. . . .STYLISH???? I've NEVER been called that before, but I'll take it. And now that you said it you can't take it back. Jinxies. I'm stylish forever because I have an award. Thanks Jules. And I totes hate squeaky green beans too. Yuk. Give me a gray, limp, mooshy green bean anyday over a squeaky one.

Thanks y'all!
@Goofy Mama: If by dork you mean AWESOME then I agree! I would LOVE a Facebook thing but they baffle me! Do I set up a separate FB account for Ad Bits? Or link back to my own page?! Eeeee! Stressful!

@Nikki: What a lovely acceptance comment! I accepted my stylish blogger award hair in ponytail, sweaty from the gym, in a stained yellow sports bra. Stylish WHAT?!
