Fabulous Blog

Kweenmama passed on this Fabulous Award to me yesterday.

I'm gonna be selfish and not pass it one for once, but I will tell you about my five fabulous addictions:

1. Shoes. I know, not really surprising or shocking... unless you realize that my mother and I actually had an entire closet in our old house devoted entirely to shoes. And the only real fight we had when I moved out of her house was who was going to get the peep-toe Michael Kors. She kept them, but I went over there a few weeks ago and "borrowed" them.

2. My Yorkshire Terrier. I love to spoil my dog, Panther! He gets carried around in a designer bag with his fleece blanket and leather collar. We went Valentine's shopping today, and he helped me pick out a few things for his dad and a handful of cards from Hallmark. He really is the best shopper.

3. Baking for other people. I don't care if I ever get to eat any of it, I love the feel of a hot oven and the smile from people who get my baked goodies. I especially love making treats for the guys at the precinct - I think because they always tend to appreciate it more than most.

4. Reading. I love to read! It's so relaxing, but exciting at the same time. I try to read a book a week. I could spend hours in Barnes and Noble.

5. Being creative. I really feel that I do have some talent when it comes to marketing. When I'm allowed to really brainstorm and be creative, I believe I can come up with some great ideas. But I practically shut down under micromanagement and can't work to my full potential. I enjoy finding creative ways to make money, promote things, or plan events. I think my talent will really shine at mine and the cop's wedding later this year.

Note to Self: I really have to say that I have some of the best readers and blog friends, and I feel like you guys must definitely like me too considering how many awards you've given me!

I too love to bake goodies but have hesitated lately because I am not good at resisting them! Moment on the lips a lifetime on the hips!

Congratulations on your latest award, MJ! You really deserve so many more! Your blog is fun and entertaining. I always enjoy myself over here. Sorry I've been scarce by the way. I'm having a hard time playing catch up after being away from the computer for a little bit. LOL.

I have a friend that has six Yorkies...

MJ said...

Rachel - LOL. True. I do pretty well, but do have to taste my wares naturally. I wouldn't want to send out anything that tastes bad right?

Teeni - Thanks Teeni!

Alison - :)

Franco - Flowers. But it kind of does look like popcorn now that I think about it.

VE - God bless them. I can barely handle one.

Will you dis-own me or kick me off of your followers list if I tell you I have never heard of the shoe designer you speak of....

However...we are taking a weekend to Nashville to where my only goal is to come back with a kick butt pair of calf high boots....

Any suggestions that won't break the bank?
