They say revenge is sweet...

but validation tastes better. Okay, maybe they don't say that but I just did. Which, therefore makes it true. Because if you can't trust what you read on the Internet, what can you trust, really? Anyway...back to my validation. I'm going to have to break my "October ghosties" series today because I have been tagged with my very first blog award. Okay, two blog awards! (I know right?! I was totally jumping around screaming yes! yes! yes! to an empty house because well, I'm easy to please and very excitable. Just be glad I didn't get so excited I peed down my leg or anything like little dogs do.)

Anyway...many many thanks to Amber at Everyone's Working for the Weekend for my awards. First up the Over the Top award.

  5. Congrats on your award..I'm happy for you an Im'a let you finish but Beyonce had the best video of all time!

    HHSue~ Thanks. Can't wait to read your answers. Something tells me they will be more outlandish then mine. Lol. Watch out for Kanye though!

  8. Congrats Spot! You are definitely deserving and I appreciate your tag! I will be posting my answers soon...kind of my first "almost" award. I'd like to say a few words...
    First I'd like to thank my mom and dad for having me. Without them I wouldn't be alive.
    I'd like to also thank my first grade teacher for inspiring me to dream...
    Sorry. Okay. I got carried away. Thanks again, Spot!

  9. Heather~ Thanks! And I'm also glad about the no leakage. It would be a pain to clean up and explaining it to my kids? Yeah. Frightening.

    Mindy~ Thanks for the congrats! I can't wait to read your answers. =]


  10. Hey Spot:
    You should know me well enough by now to realize I'm a wham, bam, comment, BAM!-I'm-already-outta-there-SLAM! kinda, of course I'd miss it if there was a SECOND post on the same day.

    But wait. I guess you DID know that and it's why you so kindly wrote to me and said "Um, Kathryn? You left your award at my place."

    Thank you sweetie....I appreciate it! Again, congrats to all the recipients and to YOU, for being so talented, gracious and...ya know, polite and all.

  11. Kathryn~ yes, I did check up on you! And thank you! You know you deserve it as well.
