Am I Inspiring?

There are many, many bloggers I follow, but there is one that has been so supportive of my little blog here.  She's never in competition with anyone else, she answers my stupid questions about blogging and the blogging community.  She was one of the first people to comment on one of my first posts.  I just came to find out that we live in the same state, merely a couple hours away from each other.

Marcia at Menopausal Mother is an amazing story teller and makes me laugh all the time.
She has given me, little ole' me the "Inspiring Blog" award!  Really?!?  I must admit she is the one who inspires me!

Thank you Marcia...  smooches
Now I have to state 7 facts about myself and pass this award along to 15 other bloggers.

1.  As you can probably tell from the title of my blog, I curse way too much.  Well, that depends on what each person thinks is too much.  I think it's just the right amount of "F" words.

2.  I only drink one cup of coffee per day. Coffee makes me poop.

3.  I love the word poop, only the word. Not sure why, but it always makes me laugh.

4. I am working on my first novel, it's taken much longer than I had expected.  I blame it on Facebook, I can hear it calling to me all day long!

5.  I used to be a total addict to T.V.  Now I'm addicted to reading. I try to limit my reading to when the kids are sleeping.  I have well rested children!

6.  I used to try to find the positive in every aspect in my life.  I was starting to make myself sick with all the sappy shit I was feeling.  Now, I try to find the humor in life.  I love it, it keeps me smiling and I'm not such a bitch. (sometimes)

7.  My boyfriend and I have been together for going on 12 years, we have 2 children.  We will probably never get married, the commitment scares the shit out of me!

Okay, here are the 15 bloggers who I feel deserve this award:

My Mom's a Whack Job

Flight Plan

Crap No one tells you

Elbow Deep in Someone Else's Shit

You're Doing it Wrong

First of All Everyone is Stupid

A Plucky Procrastinator

Can't Keep it in No more

Sassy and Sarcastic

Sippy Cups and Booze

Mommy Needs a Break

Mom's World

Chubby Chatterbox

Puzzle Me Complete

The Girl Next Door Drinks and Swears

I tried to nominate a few different kinds of blogs.. people who make me laugh and entertain me. Also, a few that I feel are really great and don't have nearly as many followers as they deserve.

If you choose to accept this award, all you have to do is leave a comment here letting me know that you received it.  On your blog, tell us all 7 facts about yourself and then, pass this award on to 15 bloggers of your choosing.

I'm out!!



  1. Awww you are so sweet!!! I'm thrilled that you accepted the award and posted it so quickly. And I LOVE the blogs you have chosen to pass it along to! Excellent choices!!! Love you lady!! XOXO
    Oh, and btw I also like saying the word "poop"--it just cracks me up!!! Now we just need to meet up one day soon and share either wine or coffer together or perhaps both!

  2. Congratulations to you as well! You totally deserve it! :)

  3. Ahhhhh...... Thank you so much....... you have made my day!!!

  4. OMG!!!!! I am so excited! Thank you so much for this award!!! I am also so excited to be hooked up with you, I think we will get along swimmingly! <3

  5. wow. I'm surprised to see a woman scared of commitment. 12 yrs is a long time. but not everyone wants to get married so it's understandable. I found your fb page and liked it. and will add you on the others. glad you came by and glad you like my blog. Looking forward to reading more of yours.

  10. New follower from More than Mommies

  11. My first visit to your site. I like you because you curse, so do I, but i call it cussing. I think you're going to inspire me to be more honest about Who I Am!!

  12. Thanks for the nice award Ellen. First I'd like to thank my mom and dad, and my seventh grade English teacher (she didn't do anything, she was just HOT!), my first girlfriend who took a chance on me, my....

    I'll play along and have something to share soon. :)


    1. You are so freaking funny! You're welcome.. Love your blog :)

  13. Thank you, Ellen! You are the first of my peers to give me a shout out. You will now officially always be special to me. ;-) The feeling is mutual! And, be prepared for me to inundate you with questions about this whole blogging thing. As a rookie, I need some grooming!

  14. Sis 1 here . . .

    Thank you so much, BWM! We (Sis 1 and Sis 2) are thrilled to have been included in your list.

    Keepin' it #sassyandsarcastic . . . .

  15. Woo hoo! Thank you, Ellen! I feel so honored...and inspired! I took some good notes while I was watching the Oscars last night, so I can be sure to bore you to sleep with my acceptance speech. 7 facts about myself? That might be tough as I classify most things as "opinions".

  16. Thank you, Ellen. My official acceptance speech:

    1. I'm not sure why my words were spaced like that. I am not talking slowly, I swear.

  17. I found your blog through My Mom's a Whack Job, and I agree with Jules--anyone who names their blog after a bad word has got to be pretty damned cool! I'll be following, for sure!

    1. I meant, "anyone who names HER blog..." DAMMIT if I'm not a stickler for grammar and it makes me look like such a nerd. But I CAN'T HELP IT. :)

  18. I can't believe I missed this! Ughh! I took a break from the pc, (I know it was a stupid idea!) And here you had nominated me and I missed it (insert sniffles, sobs and a glass of wine I will sip like a lady and not chug...kinda).

    So, because I can't just walk away even though I was late, I am going to run with this, cause there is just no way my OCD will let me ignore it. Thanks again :)*cheers* from sippy cups!


Lay it on me!
