Feeling the preppy blog love!

I won an award! Three to be exact. And I am in no way shape or form kidding when I say how delighted I am. And I'm going to tell you why first so reading my "facts" will make it that much more interesting. I've been waiting with baited breath, I'm not joking, to get another award. With all of my preppy fun and book launches I've been busy. But what I've been really busy with is keeping a list of truly interesting "facts." When I first entered blog world and received these awards I would try to do my "facts" from the top of my head and they were SO BORING! I even didn't want to read my own blog award blog, it was THAT BORING. So I started keeping a list, in a journal, next to my computer of truly interesting things (as they came to my head I would run and write them down) cause I was like, no one--not even me is THIS BORING. So I'll do my list first and the award later because I'm SO EXCITED to share it!!!!!

1. I had brunch with and at Olympia Dukakis' house! details: my bf (at the time) grew up with her son. It was his birthday brunch. I saw her Oscar and she gave me a pie to bring home to my Mommie.

2. My photograph appeared on The Sartorialist! details: my gf and I had just had lunch at the 4C's in NYC and he stopped me for my picture and handed me his card. Now he has a book deal. I bet my picture won't be in the book-oh well.

3. I went to college with Nate Berkus. The designer on Oprah! details: we were a year apart and lived in the same dorm one year. We were friends...not great friends but we hung at the same parties. He was nice.

4. My bff, also from college, is royalty. details: I always ask her opinion because I know its ROYAL

5. Wife Swap, as in the show, wanted my family to be on. Husband said "NO!" And my parents agreed so I did not do it.

6. I sent in an audition tape for the 1st Apprentice. And although I was not selected they showed my tape on Access Hollywood and Donald Trump commented about my fire place (I sat in front of it during the audition tape). Donald Trump said, when asked what he thought of me, "She seems fine but I should have that fire place in my house!"

7. You know that book "Don't sweat the small stuff?" I LOVE worrying about what to wear, and all things small. If I actually worried about "big stuff," I would have a nervous breakdown. So I guess I am boring and shallow but maybe just maybe Nate Berkus will invite me to The Oprah show!

  3. Girl, so how the heck can ya'll call your life boring? This Ozark gal stares at cows. Lots of 'em. The most exciting thing I've done today was to chase the Henrietta the roadrunner off the carport. See, I name wildlife.....do you really know anyone who does that?

    I have no name dropping like Olympia and Nate in my repertoire although Pinky Lee once kissed me and gave me a hat and a picture.

    Congratulations on your well deserved awards and have a terrific day enjoying them!

  4. you totally should have asked The Donald if he was interested in purchasing your fireplace! I would have... and then I would have tried to mess up his comb-over!!! I am SO glad you didn't participate in Wife Swap... you could have been Pigeon Boy's mom... WORSE... Pigeon Boy's father could have sent your kids up... to the attic! As for both Nate and Olympia... HOT!

  11. Wow! FUN, interesting stuff. I've been thinking about this a lot lately. Sometimes I'll get in my "I'm so old and my life has been unexciting" mode...and then I'll remember some of the awesome experiences I've had and there are so many. I've been wanting to do a post about it for quite awhile now. You've inspired me!

  19. Wow, congratulations on your well deserved awards! And what an interesting list. You certainly have had some exciting friends and experiences. I enjoyed reading about it. I love Tickled Pink and Green's suggestion. I could do an "I'm so old..." meme, as well. Ha! Yes I could.

    Wise husband to say no to Wife Swap. Those programs NEVER show people in their best light...

  44. Great list!! Someone in the town next to us did Wife Swap. I love that show, but the people we know looked like fools on the show...It could have been Embarrassing …or it could have been really fun! Ha. My husband WOULD NEVER agree to that either!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Congrats on the awards! I love that cutie Nate Berkus! Your list sure wasn't boring. :)
