Fabulous Find For A Friday-----Me, Me, Me----Its All About Me

"I walked into a party, like I was walking into a yacht,
My hat strategically dipped below one eye,
My scarf, it was apricot.
I had one eye in the MIRROR, as
I watched myself gavotte.

And all the guys dreamed that they'd be my
partner, they'd be my partner, and
I'm so vain...."


OH! Sorry! I didn't see you reading there.

I know..........singing to myself......

Not that I AM vain or anything.

"Yeah, right", You quickly, (much TOO quickly) reply.

Well, these past few weeks a few things have happened that positively can "turn" a girls head, even if I do say so myself. So, I am here in celebration of MYSELF, because, 15 minutes of 15 years of fame...............has come to an end, and I need some boosting of the old self esteem, as it were!

So, on with my fun time awards! I have been graciously granted an award from some amazing bloggers extraordinaire-----from Carma at CarmaSez , I got this great award:

She is an amazing and fun blogger that blogs everyday and keeps readers very entertained-----especially when she is juggling with her son------fun-tastic!

Then from two other bloggers, Dapper Kid , who is a phenomenal writer and fashionista-----(I'm not worthy, I'm not worthy)-----and Scholastic Scribe, who is a teacher and a super writer also----(Again, I'm not worthy)-------I got this sublime award:

Then, there is this other site that I frequent, Underdogs Unite, that is overseen by the super-de-duper Kate, that gives losers like me a place to post nominations that we have done for ourselves for those HUGE blogger awards, i.e. The Hottest Blogger, Most Humorous Blog, etc., etc.
Well, she encouraged me to nominate myself for something, and I went on over and COULDN'T FIND ANY CATEGORY THAT I COULD FIT INTO! So, I complained to her and sure enough-----being the most fantastic and funny person that she is, she made up an award for moi!

It is hilarious! And I only have it for a year, so if you want to go up for it next year, just keep it in mind and take me on for this award:

So go on over and take a look at it! She is so talented, that girl----and then vote for some of the super-amazing bloggers that are up for real awards!!!

Now......last but not least. I belong to a group of bloggers, MMB, which stands for Mormon Mommy Bloggers----they are a great group of women that are pretty down to earth, but encompass even some stranger type Mormon women like me..... So, I hope you don't hold it against me, as I actually do have a spiritual and serious side----it just doesn't rear its head very much.

So, every month they pick five blogs that are nominated for the blog of the month. And,.......dear readers,.......they HAVE PICKED ME to be nominated FOR THE MONTH OF JUNE!! Wow! Is this karma or what? Cause June is one of my favorite months, and its my birthday next week and all, and well-----this was the icing on the cake! (Love cake!......ah.....focus, focus...)

What has this got to do with you? Well, I NEED you to go on over to the MMB site, and vote for me!! Yep----its that easy breezy color girl. Just go to the column on the right and vote for me----Swaneesinger!

Now, don't even be TEMPTED to go somewhere else and vote for them----uh uh-----no, not that. You may be tempted, because I am up against a woozy of terrific bloggers----I mean, they are fun and entertaining and write every day-----Sigh.
(Yeah, and I mean you, Tiburon!)

But just try to focus.

And if you are still wondering if I deserve it, check out these past posts-----where I have written lyrics to BOOB SQUISHING, given you a test to take to determine if you are A DIVA, told the world about the time that I TOOK VIAGRA IN BRAZIL

Yeah, I'm that good.

And, last but not least----in all humility, may I say that I have the most AWESOME readers in the kingdom of the blogging world. I really mean that! You guys entertain me, give me advice, make me laugh, make me cry, make me jealous, and yes, even send me blogging love!

Thank you, thank you for that.


***Oh, and I almost forgot,
I am giving the Sushi Grade Award on to several mah-ve-lous bloggers out there! Pass it on, girls, pass it on!
*Yummy Mommy
*What Is She Thinking?
*Just So
*Lynne's Somewhat Invented Life

And for those bloggers which keep on putting out amazing posts----and have such lovely blogs----I pass on the Lovely Blog Award to:
*Blonde Canary
*The Bakers
*Audrey Eclectic
*Our Life In Perfect Cadence
*An Inch Of Gray

Congrats ladies----you are all worthy of MANY awards!

Weird, last month when I voted for my cousin-in-law, I voted like six times! Now it's not letting me vote again--they must have changed it!

dapper kid said...

Congratulations on the awards! All definitely well deserved :) Haha and if you hadn't won the Best Ex-Model Who Wears Lots of Eye Shadow and Sings Like A Rockstar award, I would have thought there was some fiddling going on with the process. I voted for you on MMB! Hope you've had a beautiful weekend :)

I just voted for your blog at the mormon mommy something or other, because Hailey told me to, and I pretty much try to do everything Hailey says. Once I voted, though, I realized that I should probably come over here and see what exactly I'd just voted for. So, anyway, nice to meet you! Congrats on the nom!
