Sugar Doll Award

Thank you all so much for your kind words and advice about my doctor.

I am actually going to call her today and see what is going on. I'm a little skeptical to think that she didn't know, because after all, she did sign a note to me saying I was no longer her patient. But you never know...

In any case, I am definitely going to seek a new doctor. I am pretty sure I deserve better!

I have been so busy lately, but wanted to quickly display an award I received from one of my favorite bloggers, Melanie of Melanie's Randomness. I feel so lucky to to have become friends with this fabulous girl and even more lucky that she thought I was cool enough to receive this beautiful blogging award! Please check out her blog. She is an amazing writer!



With this award, I have to state ten random facts about me.

Here we go:

1. I was born in Michigan, but only lived there for a few months.
2. I love fries from McDonalds. I'm not ashamed to admit it.
3. My favorite television shows are The Office, Three's Company, Desperate Housewives, Arrested Development, and America's Next Top Model.
4. My closest friends are very career-oriented people who have no desire to marry or have kids any time before they are 30.
5. I'm scared that by the time I actually want children, it will be too late.
6. Up until a year ago, I used to wear four-to-five inch heels every single day to work. Now I mostly wear flats. It's just easier.
7. I have literally dozens of designer shirts, dresses, skirts, and pants which no longer fit me because I have gained 20 pounds in the past year. To see Prada, Etro, Chanel, and Burberry sit in the dark for months untouched makes me sick.
8. I don't like bottled water.
9. Sometimes I feel so overcome with work and other obligations, I wish there was more time in the day, or more days in the week.
10. I feel like a terrible blogger because without my own computer, I rarely am able to comment back to people anymore. :(

Anyway, hope those didn't put you to sleep! Haha.

I am passing this award on to all of my followers.

I just want to hug you right now. Nothing else to say. :)

(Which is pretty rare for me).

tracy said...

Just found your blog and love it! What a great name and that's only the begining!
So sorry to hear your doctor story, if that happened to me, i would be heart broken, that is soooo sad. Maybe a really sweet, youngish, guy doc this time? (describing my own!) Anyhow, hope things get worked out.
Congrats on your award! And thanks for a wonderful blog.

Congratulations on the award, darling - so well-deserved.

1) "Sometimes I feel so overcome with work and other obligations, I wish there was more time in the day, or more days in the week." I literally feel like this everyday!

2) You are not a terrible blogger - you are a great one. We know you get busy, and that you are having computer issues right now, and we understand that. And we will still be here when you return! :)

Sophie said...

Congrats! I love looking forward and working hard towards career goals, and you're obviously the same. And to be surrounded by like minded girlies is perfect. I guess they reflect where we are in life. Do you know what though? I am dreading the day my girlfriends swich to banter about kids, I have in particular who are going to be INSANE when it comes to kid speak!

Couture Carrie said...

Congrats on your award, darling! Loved reading your facts! I adore The Office too :)

Pop Champagne said...

wow what the hell is going on with your doctor? $27 is NOT THAT MUCH AT ALL considering most medical bills are 3 figures... man you need a different doctor, or immigrate to canada and you can go see all the doctors you want for free!! the catch is the wait line is usually a few hours :S congrats on the award and hope you get things sorted out!

OceanDreams said...

You are not a terrible blogger, hope your computer gets resolved soon! Congrats on your award and glad you are seeking a new doctor. Oh and I totally understand about the time thing. It is so hard to find enough hours to get everything done!!

Inspiration in Italy said...

Congrats on your award - SO deserved. I feel the same way as you do about having kids. I have NO idea when I will have the desire....and I have already been married now for 3 years! I do hope things get straightened out with your doctor too!

Congrats on the awards! Thanks for your comments! It's really great to know something about you!

Sandy said...

Congrats on the award hunny ... you TOTALLY deserve it!
And you are one of the most encouraging bloggers I've come across so don't ever think you're a terrible blogger ... you're a doll! A sugar doll actually LOL
Don't worry about the kids issue ... you may or may not ever want to have them ... and that's ok. Works great for Barry and I. And if you do ... all the more power to you.
And don't worry about 20 pounds ... you can remove them ... you just have to remind yourself that you are totally worth the effort. **MAJOR HUGS**

Treacle said...

Yay on the blog award! I love these kinds of posts; it's nice to see other sides of the author's life. :-)

I love all of your flats, but I am hooked on boots, let's go buy some heels! (comfy ones!)

MJ said...

Good luck with the doctor situation but regardless of what happens, I'm sure you'll work it out and things will turn out ok. Congrats on the award and loved reading the random facts! I kinda love McD's fries as well... and I"m the same with heels vs. flats. Most of my heels hardly get worn anymore, unless I go out at night... sigh.

Melanie's Randomness said...

Your so sweet. I'm happy I've become friends with you too. I really hope everything goes okay with your doctor. Maybe you'll get a new computer for X-mas!! Thanks dear for the compliments too! Big *HUGS*

i always enjoy reading your blog. no wonder you have a lot of fans. i can imagine how'd you feel at seeing your designers' clothes sitting in the corner. i guess, you can use it as a challenge to wear them back ;)
