I’ve been awarded two awesome blog awards by two awesome bloggers. You would think I would have a better vocabulary from all the blogging that I do, but nope! I can’t believe there are people out there that are kind enough to read the dumb things I write and take time out of their day to comment and give me love. My blog wouldn’t be as magical as it is if it wasn’t for all of you guys. Awww. Okay treasure that sentence because I’m never saying anything like that ever again.
A long time ago (July 14th to be exact) Brother Jon nominated me for the Beautiful Blogger award. At least, I think he did. There were a lot of different awards pictured on his post and I didn’t really know what was going on to be perfectly honest. So I just picked one. The one that calls me beautiful.
Brother Jon has an awesome blog full of honest observations sprinkled with a lot of faith. It’s refreshing to see someone so proud of what they believe in and not afraid to show it. I wish I could be more like you. Ps. I like your cat. PPS. Remember when you scolded me for writing “Brother John” instead of “Brother Jon” on my blogroll? Good times!
Recently (today, to be exact) Rebecca2000 at Ladyornot.com nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award. This made me super happy because Rebecca is a fairly new reader to my blog so I’m glad I made a good impression.
Rebecca’s blog is really great and consistently funny. I don’t know how she keeps thinking of funny things and observations but it’s starting to piss me off. I’m the funny one around here! But in all seriousness, check her blog out. She’s a cool chick and deserves some more views.
Whew…now that THAT’S over. I get to talk about me. I know you guys love hearing about me. I know you do. Don’t lie to yourself. Here’s seven facts about myself that I hope I’ve never told you before:
1. Whenever I say “That’s so funny!” in real life, I actually mean “I don’t really think it’s funny, I just don’t want to be rude.” The problem is, now I’ve been saying that even when I do find things funny. I pray none of you ever meet me.
2. If I like a song, and I mean REALLY like a song, I’ll put it on repeat until I want to throw my computer across the room. My newest obsessions:
The House That Heaven Build -Japandroids
Good Ol’ Fashioned Nightmare – Matt & Kim
Ho Hey – The Lumineers
3. In middle school, I used to buy weird sparkly stickers out of machines at gas stations and Wal*Mart entryways that said sayings on them like “Teacher’s Pet” or “Princess” or “Cool Kat” and stuff like that. I would stick them on my binders and I thought I was THE coolest. If I could go back in time, I would lock myself in a room for all of middle school.
4. My favorite flowers are water lilies. If anyone manages to get me a bouquet of those bad boys, I’ll love you forever. But I’ll settle with regular lilies because I’m just a regular old Lily, ya know?
5. I used to go into Barnes and Noble and flip through magazines, tearing out pages that I thought were pretty and wanted to keep. So sorry for stealing from you, Barnes. This is my apology. Kind of. My friend actually got caught for doing it when she was with me and she had to buy a $7 mag! Ooops…!
6. I’ll be a quarter of a century old on October 5th. That’s old enough for me. How early do people start lying about their age?
7. I’m pregnant! Just kidding. It’s just buy one blizzard and get the next one for 99 cents at Dairy Queen so I have a huge ice cream baby.
Everyone on my blogroll is up for these awards. And those of you that aren’t on my blogroll are also nominated. I’m feeling rather generous. It’s probably just my ice cream baby.

Thanks!! The cat says that you’re not so bad yourself. I don’t really remember ‘scolding’ you for that. It’s just not necessary to use that “H” when I’m around. We got to find ways to conserve every chance we get.
I happened to get on the news, on a couple of different stations, on Labor day. My name is Jonathan Hagar. The first station said I was “John Hager”. The second station got a little better with Jonathan Hager. Small time compared to “Brother John”.
I do the same thing with music. I actually did that with Call Me Maybe about a month ago. Those darn Canadians are catchy if anything.
Hahah I just wanted to embarrass you and pick on you and make you sound mean. Even though that’s impossible because everyone knows how nice you are. Grrr.
Haha sounds like I would be working at the first (loser) news station.
I think I did the same thing with Call Me Maybe as well! I didn’t realize she was Canadian until I was finished listening forever.
I promise there will be opportunities for you to point out how mean I am. I’ll make sure to let you know when that happens.
If you haven’t seen it yet you should check out the Call me Maybe cover she did with Jimmy Fallon and The Roots crew.
Oooo okay! Thanks for the recommendation! Okay, I’m eagerly awaiting to point out how mean you are even though I already tried just now and it didn’t really work.
Wow, when I read you were pregnant, I was like ‘WAAAAAAH She’s pregnant!’
Only to discover you lied –‘. But anyway, it’s amazing how there are still things we don’t know about each other though we’ve spent months and months together talking about ourselves. But I must say that the amount of surpriseness about these random facts gets less every time ;).
Hahah I was hoping it would trick someone! Nahh I won’t get myself knocked up for at least 2 years I think. I’m too young to devote my life to someone else, right? RIGHT!
I know, it’s crazy to learn other things about people. I feel like I have no more facts to tell! I’m glad you’re starting to know how I work. No surprises means you know me pretty well!
Of course I know you pretty well, that’s the reason I was surprised to read you were pregnant ;).
Congrats on your awards! Teacher’s Pet stickers, can you get any cooler? 😉 I think we can start lying about our age when we turn 30, and just stay 29 forever. 30 is three decades, doesn’t that sound OLD! 😉
Man, I know right? THE COOLEST. That’s a good idea. Twenties still seem pretty young. 30 is just the worst. Three decades sounds like how old father time is. Or the crypt keeper. Or someone really old like that.. 😉
Haha! I love this post! I’m feeling rather generous, it’s probably just my ice cream baby! This may be my favorite acceptance post ever.
Oh good! Man, why is Dairy Queen so good to me? Honesty ice cream is the best food evs. Glad you liked the acceptance post! I hadn’t done one in a while so it was about time.
Leave it to you to make an awards post funny, Lily. I did almost crap my pants, though, when you joked that you were preg. After Jells has her baby (any day now) there will be no more pregnancy blogs in my queue, so I need someone funny and interesting to get pregnant so they can blog about it.
Hahah good! I’m glad I scared ya! Nah, my husband will honestly poop his pants when he reads this. Giving him a minor heart attack at work. Tee hee. But yeah I think you might have to wait a couple years. But maybe by that time, you’ll be on your second child? 😉
You’re hot when your pissed off. I will have to keep posting.
You should. You must. Whether I’m hot or not. Always keep posting.
Will do. I am currently working on my WTF Friday post for tomorrow.
I couldn’t tell you the last time I had ice cream. Yet for some reason earlier today I was craving it, Dairy Queen specifically! Animal Spirits interconnecting right there.
I just realized I went straight to the food. I always do this! I had a friend who said to me he thought we were on the same thought process and we’re very close minded. He said “Are you thinking about what I’m thinking?” I wasn’t thinking anything so I thought of the word “cheeseburger.” He said to me “Are you as hungry as I am right now?” This happened only about 3 weeks ago. I hope it sent a chill down your spine.*
*This was the cofounder of my high school club FatKids United so the fact we were both hungry at around midnight should really be no shock.
Spirit animals for life. Or animal spirits as you like to say. But yeah Dairy Queen is amazing. I’m surprised you haven’t treated yourself in a while. Let’s be real, the food part of any blog is the best part. FatKids United sounds like something that I would’ve liked to be a part of, but I wouldn’t have because it’s way too embarrassing. That is pretty crazy that you guys were almost thinking the same thing.
That’s so funny! JK. It is. I can say that I was WAY less cool than buying sparkly stickers for binders. Way way way less cool. I don’t know how I made it to the other side. So what I’m saying is…I’m cool now?
I see what you did there.
You are deffies cool now. I don’t know man, you should’ve seen these stickers…they were pret-ty lame. But if we’re not losers in middle school, we wouldn’t be awesome now. All the people that were cool in middle school are most def losers now. For sure.
I sure hope they peaked that early. Because who can peak then and keep a stride all the way till now?
Congrats on the awards! Those are…unique…facts.
I’m sorry you listed them, as now I will need to find new ways to blog-blackmail you.
Nice tunes though!
You’re clearly immensely jealous of my facts. I’ll give you (and only you) more secrets so you can blackmail me. I love a good blackmail. Glad you liked the tunes!
congratulations on the twin awards, lily! just wanted to say that we share Fact # 2. i’ve been stuck on a mat kearney song for a week now. cheers!
Hey thanks! Ooo I’ve heard of Mat Kearney but I haven’t giving him much of a chance. I’ll listen some more! Thanks again!
not sure if you’d like his music. posted one of his songs in my blog recently. check it out when you have time 🙂 http://ngtolentino.wordpress.com/2012/07/31/mat-kearney-poor-boy-remix/?preview=true&preview_id=905&preview_nonce=0db8450a11
Congrats, Lily! You deserve each and every accolade…
Well, I don’t know about that! I’m just lucky I guess!
