Saving my behind (in other words, Getting Caught Up)

Whew! After the last week or so, I've got awards piling up. I'm definitely honored. I've got more bling that Puffy or P Diddy or Sean or whatever the hell that guy calls himself.

First off, Cami wants to get me in bed. I mean she invited me to a slumber party. What fun THAT would be!

To the party, I would also like to invite:


Lisa- we actually had many a slumber party in our day. And what fun we had.


and


Veronica- since she's up anyway.



Next, Cami also gave me this lovely piece of bling



I'm not sure that my skillz are that good, but I try.


I'd like to pass this one on to:


Ingrid- who has mad writing skillz.


and


Meghan- who has mad photography skillz.


and


Stephanie- who can create anything out of fabric. Seriously! She had J's b-day dress and a quilt for her when she was born. This woman is TALENTED!



Then, Dixiechick gave me this award, because I enjoy pimping out my friends.




And then she gave me this:

Which I would like to pass on to:

Sybil- Since she had a few extra bananas at one point.

and

Casey- because that woman can cook!

Whew! I feel better now.

But, there's one more thing. That lovely tattooed woman also tagged me for a meme. So, here goes:

first of all, no one, even the creators, will figure out windows vista before they die. this is an impossible standard. more achievable is understanding liza minelli in her entirety. she's much less complex.

secondly, is ass a bad word if you leave it in a comment? what if you say ass in a comment whilst talking about your husband? is it still a bad word?

;)

Rachel said...

LOL @ Holly's responses.
You go with your purty blog bling!
I'm so glad that Dixie passed the award on to you and that you're passing the banana on, too!!
Wonderful!!
You crack me up!!
Have a lovely day!
