Oh to really be a Queen!

Erinadequate Me ( nominated me for Queen of All Things! Thank you!! You are a sweet heart. This is a lot harder than it should be. I have to list 7 things that make me awe-summm!!!! I'm not feeling particularly Awesome right now. But I will give it a try.

I am a good listener. My friends are so fun but like everyone else they have stress. I love to try to make people feel great about themselves.

I'm fairly articulate. I'm able to express how I feel in an open and honest way. But, I try really hard never to hurt peoples feelings either. You can say things in a a way that is direct without being mean.

I'm pretty sure I have so say I love my family. I know everyone does but they are such a huge part of my life. So I would feel horrible if I didn't say I love my sons, husband, parents et al!

I get dressed up almost every day. If I'm doing chores around the house, of course I'm not in a ball gown. Once I've showered I love looking polished and put together. Hanging out in lounge wear is not for me.

I'm really good about taking my vitamins and drinking tons of water. Exercise is another chore I'm consistent about. Nothing too crazy but I like a good work out in the morning to start the day. Putting lotion on my feet at night with socks and all those kind of things.

I love playing games. Gin rummy is my favorite but I love playing board games, charades etc.

I wrote a book...
And now, the Queenly Duties are as follows:

1. List 7 things that make me awe-summm.

2. Pass the award onto 7 bloggers that I love.

3. Tag those bloggers to let them know they are now Queens too (and link back to the Queen who tagged you).

The bloggers that I love are:

Petunia in Paradise
Tickled Pink Talk
The Happy Hamiltons
All Things in Moddy
Her Highness of Cute
Queen Bee Swain (I'm sure she has won this a million times but I do love her)

I hope everyone is having a terrific Wednesday!




  1. Ohhh you are completely inspiring me - I really need to be better about getting polished every day, and drinking water etc. I was just sitting next to a full glass of water for 3 hours, and I just started drinking it when I read your post! I am officially back on the train :) Thank you!

  2. I love reading your blog too! :) I have to agree about putting cream on your feet at night...its like a little mini spa in my house! :)

  3. OH WOW!!!!! I haven't been nominated for anything!!! You are so sweet!!! I love reading your blog and like everyone else has commented, you have definitely inspired me to stay polished even after mommmydom hits me!!!!

  4. merci beaucoup SC! you are most certainly articulate and I love the fact that you don't loaf about in lounge-clothes- a good kick in the rear to me to stop hanging out in my gym rat clothes just because I'm home!

    PS- there really is nothing like a good AM workout, is there? total empowerment for the rest of the day and a huge item taken care of on the to-do list!

    keep on rocking!
