Tag Archives: I Am a Hoarder


Soooo…over the last ::cough…4 or so months…cough:: Trinity River, Ring Finger Tanline, Choc Chip Uru, and West End Singleton gave me the Versatile Blogger Award. Thank you, ladies!

And because I’m a hoarder, I’m just now posting.

Here are the rules.

  1. Thank the award giver.
  2. Share 7 things about yourself.
  3. Pass the award along to some of your favorite bloggers.

Let’s start with the 7 things about myself. I write a lot about the desserts I eat, but now I’d like to fill you on another food I enjoy.


Behold my favorite cheeses. I have a versatile cheese palate.

  1. Cheez Whiz (Yeah, I said it!)
  2. Extra Sharp Cheddar
  3. Feta
  4. Gorgonzola
  5. Blue Cheese (only the cheese, not the dressing)
  6. Mozzarella
  7. Swiss
  8. Nacho (not your) Cheese
  9. Cream Cheese

Since I’m super late posting, I gave you some extras. And because I couldn’t choose between them.

Now for the nominees…

Go Commando…It’s Creative

Roll call! Is everyone present and accounted for? Did anyone blow up while playing with fireworks? Kiefer nearly took out a car and a neighbor’s house before he decided to leave the fireworks to the professionals.

Not Kiefer’s fireworks….

Anyways…Somersaulting Through Life bestowed upon me the Creative Chaos Award. Thank you!

Now I need to…

  • Thank the person who gave you the award. Done!
  • Take your best shot at 3 tasks listed below.
  • Nominate some other bloggers and recent followers.

What are 3 weird things you do?

  1. Pick the white seeds out of a watermelon. I heard they make you pregnant with watermelon babies.
  2. As soon as a DVD movie starts, I get up for drinks or snacks. Why I don’t get them during the previews baffles me.
  3. I usually only hiccup twice.

Why do you look at the “glass half full” scenario and ask, “What? No coffee?”

I don’t drink coffee. So I’ve never said that. But if a glass is half full of something yummy, like a milkshake, I may ask, “Who the hell drank half of my milkshake?”

You find yourself in a desolate place when the car breaks down. You have no phone service, no Wal-Mart, and only a candy bar for food. It’s 150 miles to the closest town. What color are your underpants and why?

What makes you think I wear underpants?

I’m passing the award along to a couple recent followers as well as some bloggers who I think will have interesting answers to these questions, not just the underpants one. Annnnnd…I probably just scared off my recent followers…. 

Favorite Comment From Last Post: “The key to get crazy people to stop talking is to be even crazier than they are. So she says she threatened her boyfriend with a butcher knife? You say that you killed the last guy who cheated on you with a cheese grater. Then enjoy your relaxing massage in stunned silence.”—KaysFairyTale

Isn’t She Lovely?

Yes, I’m lovely. And I’m wonderful, too. At least Lindsey over at Happy or Hungry thinks so.

She passed me a blog award. Thanks, Lindsey!

Here are the rules:

  • Link back to the blogger who nominated you.
  • Paste the award image on your blog.
  • Share some facts about yourself.
  • Nominate some other blogs.
  • Post a comment on these blogs letting them know you nominated them.

Thoughtsy Fun Fact #1: Kiefer and I had our first date at a beer fest at this stadium. He won me over when he agreed to go in the moonbounce with me.

Thoughtsy Fun Fact #2: I don’t like beer.

Thoughtsy Fun Fact #3: I get awful motion sickness. Sometimes just swinging on a wobbly swingset will upset my stomach. Moonbounces, however, are fine.

And here are the nominations:

I’ve been hoarding a lot of awards lately, but I’m working on passing them along. So if you gave me one, stayed tuned.

What’s With Today Today?

On Monday…

Kiefer: What do you want to do on Wednesday?

Me: I don’t know. What do you want to do?

Kiefer: Ummmm…is this a trick question? Wednesday is your birthday.

Me: Ohhhhhhhh!

Happy Birthday to me!

Today I’m showing you the first birthday present I received this year.

You may remember my obsession hoarding collection of flavored vodka.

I have Cake, Coconut, Marshmallow, Cotton Candy, Orange Whipped, Cookie Dough, Cherry Whipped, and Gummy flavors. But I was missing a flavor: Key Lime Whipped.

To find the elusive Key Lime Whipped vodka, I visited liquor store after liquor store after liquor store.

No Key Lime Whipped vodka.

Then…Misty and I met up for dinner. We sipped Key Lime Pie martinis as I opened my birthday present and saw the elusive Key Lime Pie vodka.

Thanks, Misty!

Now I know what to tell Kiefer I want to do tonight. Have him make me Key Lime Pie vodka martinis.
