And the award goes to...

ME! That's right, two awards have been bestowed upon yours truly. Woohoo! My lovely friend Lynn has honored me by calling me both beautiful (I'll take it) and versatile. I guess that last one is because of the wide range of things I talk about here: poop, stimming, weather, and more poop.

There are rules for receiving these awards. I have to pass them on to seven other bloggers and I have to reveal seven things about myself. Well, since one of my many talents is breaking the rules, I'm only doing six of each. Yes, I could probably come up with seven of each, but rules schmules, ya know?!

So, here are the six bloggers I'd like to bestow both of these honors on:

Lady of the Arts
Leelee News: All about Katie
The Gentle Giant
The Quirk Factor
To Kid or Not to Kid
Ticky and Mimi

Listen, if you don't have time for this stuff, I get it. No worries. But at least know that I think you are ALL beautiful and versatile :)

Ok, for the 6 things about me...
1) Often times I think in lyrics - occasionally in Yo Gabba Gabba lyrics (I know, FML)
2) When I'm in Michigan I call Los Angeles home, but when I'm in Los Angeles, I call Michigan home. I'm lost.
3) I am super open and honest here, often fearless sometimes, and even though I love when people I know in my real life tell me they read this shizz (a girl needs a boost sometimes), I get really shy about it.
4) I switched schools every two years beginning at 7 years old. And by "switched schools" I mean "was expelled"
5) I married my high school boyfriend's best friend. That ex-boyfriend was a groomsman in my wedding.
6) I count some of the Autism/Special Needs moms I've met on the interwebs among my biggest inspirations and closest confidants.

Congrats on the awards! (I never follow their silly rules either)

Lynn said...

You are so deserving! I thought the same thing about the versatile one...my humor spans all the way from charcoal to black.

If I ever give up the ghost on this blogging thing, I would still read yours so you must never stop.

How the hell did you get expelled so many times? Let's hear those stories...

Heather said...

Congrats Dani :)

It's always funny to hear others describe something that you relate to- that happens often on your blog for me- but that little part about being excited yet embarrassed by finding out people read your blog- that's my reaction every time as well!

Congratulations! Can I call you inspirational on the account that I am now compelled to start a blog for the sole purpose of receiving awards? Or is that just shallow and presumptuous? Whatever.

IJTWATJM is one of the top blogs in my repertoire, and I have a big repertoire. You deserve both of those awards and more.

Thank you! <3

Will try to crank something out when I am able. Currently living in a freakin' hotel of all things because our crazy landlord flipped out... ugh, I suppose it could be worse.

And I totally think in lyrics too! :)

Ticky and Mimi said...

Oh my gosh. You are so deserving! I love your posts. Keep up the great work!

Thank you for the honor!!
