I'm Baaaack...

Did you miss me? Because I missed you... each and every one of you. I feel like we have a lot of catching up to do.

"Soooo....what is up? What's the 411? What has everybody been up to? What's the hot gossip? Tell me everything. What have you guys been listening to? What are the cool jams?"

The first person to tell me what movie and character this above quote is from will get an extra entry (if you choose to participate) in my upcoming contest. Yes, I DID say contest! You didn't think I was lying when I told you all I was planning a contest for April, did you? Well, shame on you if you did! Check back Tuesday, the 20th, for my first official contest. You must be a follower of my blog to enter... and you must love cheese. Okay, cheese actually has nothing to do with it, but I thought it would sound more "official-like" with two entry rules. More to come...

On the author front, my fabulous web designer, Denise Biondo, is working on my website drafts as we speak... er, type. Sometime soon my author website will be up and this blog will be one of its internal pages. If you're one of those types who's not fond of change, I'm warning you now that my blog template WILL BE CHANGING (the horror!) when my full website is up and running. Hence I may not be able to post all the various blog awards you've given me anymore (thank you for the awards!!). That said, I have several more awards that I want to acknowledge and post now, but I won't be passing any more on because there are too many great blogs to choose from, and to be honest, figuring out who doesn't already have the awards I want to pass along makes my eyes cross. For the love of uncrossed eyes, I hope you all understand. If, however, you want any of my awards, let me know, and I'll be happy to pass them along to you.

Without further ado, I shall acknowledge the awards now...

I'M SENDING BIG THANKS TO:

Medeia Sharif for the Awesomesauce Award and the Super Comments Award! Medeia also tagged me in a fun Q&A blog post which I will be participating in and posting at some point in the future...





D.L. Hammons at Cruising Altitude for the Sunshine Award



and....

Claire at Points of Claire-ification for the From Me to You award and the Soulmates Award!





Claire had to invent a fictional fact about each person she chose to pass the Soulmates Award onto. Since I won't be passing it along, I thought I'd at least share the awesome fact Claire invented about me: Amy Holder's the current Chocolate Diving Champion of Pennsylvania. To win this title she dove into 6 feet of chocolates to retrieve a teddy bear, with a time of 15.26 seconds.
Hahahaha! I love it!

Thanks again to all the wonderful bloggers who've passed along blog awards to me!

Make sure to come back on Tuesday to check out and participate in my contest!

That is so Mean Girls---Regina's Mom. I know that whole movie by memory!

I love change so I'll be looking forward to seeing the new look. Congrats on all the awards. That's a really awesome fictional fact on you. Yay, for saving the teddy bear!
Glad you're back.

Congratulations on all of your awards, and on being crowned the Chocolate Diving Champion of Pennsylvania! I can't wait to see the new look. I'm sure it will be awesome.

Ha ha! You're welcome! I'm about to quit the awards too. All the love is nice, but it's beginning to feel like the old 'forwarded email' days.

Yes, we missed you. Severely! We've been crying our eyes out for days. Weeks. Months. Years even. (How long were you gone again? lol!)

Nice to have you back.

Btw, if we're following you already, will we have to re-follow when you relocate?

PS I totally love cheese.

Welcome back, Amy. I used to be a movie watcher .. but it faded into kiddo carpools and homework and lots of other good excuses. I see very few now....and always feel like I'm missing out. Maybe someday.

Welcome back! Congrats on the awards! And congrats on the soon-to-be new web design.

Then the quote? I totally had to Google it and then had to laugh my face off because Cool Jams are a brand of "menopausal sleepwear to help combat hot flashes and night sweats". Ha, ha! Eventually down the list I did find the Mean Girls quote.


Have a great week!

Thanks for all the "welcome backs"! I'm actually out of town until Thursday this coming week, but I have better internet access now... and I just can't stay away from you all for too long!

Adriana - Awesome job! I LOVE Mean Girls and couldn't help quoting it. If you decide to participate in my contest this week, you'll be able to enter twice. Good luck!

Alissa - Does NJ have a Chocolate Diving Championship? If so, we should totally go head to head. Or maybe we could be the first chocolate synchronized swimming pair.

Claire - Your cheese comment after thought cracked me up! You always leave the best comments. Btw, I was gone for exactly seven years to the day... so that was a lot of tears shed on my behalf. :)

Tess - Movie watching definitely takes a back seat to car pools and homework... oh, yeah...and I little thing called writing a book. You're not missing out too much, I promise.

Jackee - LMAO!!! Oh my goodness! Your comment practically made me spit out my drink with laughter! Cool Jams are menopausal sleepwear?!? That is awesome! The quote was sort of random, so I'm not surprised that it didn't show up high on a Google search. Nice detective work though, on both the sleepwear and the quote! LOL! Hope you have a good week too. :)

Claire - I forgot to add that you won't have to re-follow me when my new website is up and running. I will have the same blogger account, the layout will just be changed to match my main web page. Thanks for asking!

Welcome back! I will return...contest or not. :)

Wait! You really aren't the chocolate diving champion? I'm strangely disappointed...
