PLEASE NOTE: If you are struggling with infertility or are currently trying to conceive and you DON'T want to read about my pregnancy (which I totally understand), I recommend starting at the beginning of the blog (March 2010) and reading from there. I find out I'm pregnant in June 2011 so there is a lot of trying to conceive posts in between that you might find funny, helpful or relatable. Wishing you all the luck in the world!

Versatile Blogger Award: You Like Me! You REALLY Like Me!

The fabulous and brilliant Slackie O. of “MY LAZY OVARIES” ( has honored me and my blog with the Versatile Blogger Award!

You like me… you really like me!

As I understand it, this is how the award works in three steps…

ONE: Thank the person who gave you the award:

Thank you very, very much Slackie O. I’m incredibly honored. You make infertility glamorous you sexy kitten you!

TWO: Tell 7 things about yourself that readers may not know.


1. I have an unhealthy obsession with Splenda. I steal them from diners, restaurants, coffee shops, etc. and I use WAY too much of them too often. I know, I know… it’s a problem.

2. I secretly wish I were from England. I love their shows, movies, their land, their monarchy, their dry wit and pretty much everything about the UK… with the exception of their food.

3. I absolutely can’t sleep unless I’ve showered first. I just can’t tolerate the thought of sleeping while I still have the day on me (so to speak). Ick.

4. I’ve never done any drugs nor have I ever been rip roaring drunk. I find life hard enough to navigate without any uppers or downers, thank you very much.

5. I feel guilty pretty much all of the time for pretty much everything. Sorry about the oil spill everyone. My bad.

6. I could not survive without cover stick (for the dark circles under my eyes) and Blistex Lip Balm.

7. Believe it or not, I don’t find Brad Pitt all that attractive. Yeah, I said it.

THREE: Pay it forward by nominating 8 bloggers you’ve recently discovered:

I would like to bestow the Versatile Blogger Award upon the following:

1. The Big Girl Blog by the Plus Size Princess Named CeCe at

2. The Art of Love and Intimacy by Jennifer Jones at

3. Bouler Architecture by Nadine Bouler at

4. The Sassy Curmudgeon by Una LaMarche at

5. Do I Have To Be a Dink? by KeepOnTrying at

6. The Honey B. by Honey B. at

7. The Infertility Doula by the The Infertility Doula at

8. Infertility Blog by Dr. Licciardi at

Thanks again and happy reading!!!

Whoa! I steal Splenda, too. It's totally a compulsion. I always have at least 6 packets in my purse and I haven't had to buy Splenda in about a year.

You cracked me up on the oil spill one. I, too, accept the blame for things that are far beyond my control. Love this post, and I'm glad to know more about you!

I am the exact same way with numbers 2,4,5. BBC America is one of my most fav channels and I wish I could shut my brain off because I'm always beating myself up or worrying about something.

I don't find Brad Pitt attractive, either. Oh, and I also feel guilty about EVERYTHING. I apologize for everything, too.

Honey B. said...

I'm with you, I NEVER buy Splenda...the local coffee shop is my supplier! lol

The Infertility Doula said...

Thank you for the award!! What a wonderful surprise and honor. I will thank you in my next entry and pay it forward.

Haha! I totally agree about England. BBC America is on constantly in our house, and I don't find Brad Pitt that attractive either. I'm glad I found your blog!
