~FOR SHAME PEOPLE...FOR SHAME! ~

I truly wanted to pull together a post about my vacation. But I've been so blasted busy catching up on all of the posts that I've missed, that I simply haven't had the time. It's all YOUR fault really...If you people weren't so dang interesting I'd have not gotten caught up in reading your blogs, and I would have time to get my crap together. I hope you all will take a moment to hang your heads and repeat after me......"I (state your name) will try to be less interesting and not so distracting". Now send me cookies and all will be forgiven...unless there are raisens in them and then you'll be in BIGGER trouble than you are in now!

Since I already pulled this post screen up...I guess I can fill in some of the space.


Ya know how everyone is doing that "crapper snapper" thingie. You know...ya go to somebody else's potty and take creepy pictures of yourselves...then Sheila the dear one gives you an award for being weird....errrr....brave. Well I'm sure not gonna be left out! There was only one little problem.........



HEY is it my fault the mirrors are so freakin high in New York..they must think I'm a center in the NBA...I tried...really....it's just not my fault I'm vertically challenged. Do you think Sheila will give me a pass on this one? Probably not since I was too worn out by my WHIRLINGDERVISH MOM to even comb my ratty hair. How pathetic is that! But I was exhausted and I barely had enough strength to hold up the camera in my chubby little hands. *SIGH*

Now on to more serious matters. Check out this cool award. Artie and Cindy were oh so kind and bestowed it on me! YAY!

Now I know you all know Artie over at "Color outside the lines" He is one very cool, very classy guy. Just having him know who I am makes me feel special. If you haven't been to his blog...oh wait that was just silly ...of course you have, everyone goes there! But in case you're just not that hip and happening...you should go say "hey" to him. You'll fall in love with him just like we all have! And maybe if you're really lucky he'll put you into one of his hysterically funny stories! Thanks so Much Artie!!!


And Cindy at "just another day in paradise" is another one of my favorite bloggers. Not just because she has a wonderful blog and does these really thoughtful posts that make you think, and not just because she sent me these really cool Utah Jazz pens I use everyday at work, but it's also because she is kind and wonderful and I consider her my friend even though we've never met. Go visit her and you'll see exactly what I mean.


And then Tracey over at "I am me" gave me this award. Tracey is an animal lover like me. Although she has about a thousand cats and I don't have any. She takes these wonderful pictures of her sweet pets and I always look forward to seeing her blog. She's kind and has this really big heart...and she makes me smile! Please run over there and check her out! Now I've already gotten this one before...but I'm greedy and will be more than happy to take it again.

The Berry's Patch said...

I never thought mine was that interesting to begin with. Just decorating crap. I just thought you visited me out of the kindness of your heart. Like you felt sorry for me or something.

Congratulations on your award. Oh and you have a beautiful head. :-)

Tracey said...

forgot to say..."crapper snapper"....LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You are so funny, I am so glad you are back :)

Insane Mama said...

What is this creepy photos thingy in other peoples bathroom that you speak of?

dana said...

You'd better watch out! You will be buried alive in cookies! Geez, what a terrific way to go----hmmmm.

LOVE your Crapper Snapper---isn't blogging fun?

I have been busy, too, and have really neglected my favs. I miss my cyber buddies when I have to stay away--so I do know what you mean! I have lots of catching up to do, too----I am looking forward to a post from you about your vacation! Take care!!! Dana

French said...

You almost got it get that cute little head of yours up higher so we can see you;) I am sooooo behind in commenting I am embarassed! But you have been duly added to the soap opera;) French

Smilingsal said...

I had the cookies all wrapped up and ready to take to the Post Office, and then I decided I'd like a little snack. And, I wanted to be SURE that I had made them so that they tasted good.

Anyway, when I bake another batch, I'll send some. BTW: they tasted really good!

Raxx - A day in the life said...

Nikki!! LOVE what I see of you so far................. dont be shy! You are forgiven, we've all been there, I too have been unable to blog at times becuause I get caught up in reading other blogs!

Look forward to your vacation post though!!

jeanne said...

Nikki, now you did make me laugh already this morning. Your snapper diva photo is a hoot. I had a terrible time holding the camera and getting a good photo too. My first photo was just like yours. I hope Sheila will see this. No one has heard from her since Ike. She lived just a couple of blocks from the sea wall in Galveston. She got out of there we know, but haven't heard a word since. We are all worried about her.

Congratulations on your awards. You sure deserve them. I too love your blog. smile.

Hugs, Jeanne

Justine said...

Hi Nikkie!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Don't you just deserve those awards so much? Yes, you do my friend! me loves your bloggy!!!!!!!!!!!!

Justine :o )

Sincerely Yours said...

Morning Nikki! Too cute! I'll never join in the "crappy snappy" photo shoot - never never!!!!lol Thanks for the comment on the wall quote; my husband has learned nothing lasts around here for long so he rarely even looks around!!! I'm not even sure how long this will last!lol Have a great weekend - Jeannette

Brown-Eyes said...

Yea...Nikki is back! Blogville will be FUN again...LOL Sorry about the cookies I was going to send, but mine had raisins in them (I hate raisins & that keeps me from eating them-sometimes)...you crack me up...crapper-snapper diva!
;-) Bo

squawmama said...

Hi Nikki, Your blog is wonderful and deserves the awards... I love reading what you have to say and just as I found you, you took time off.. Glad your back on...

Hugs'
Donna

bj said...

Sorry, I had a whole cookie jar full of cookies but...they ALL have raisins in 'em....tuff luck, lady.
ok, now...next time you take a pic of yourself in a high mirror, stand on someones shoulders, girl!! I nearly broke my neck, trying to see you in this photo...
hope your day is great!!

Big Hair Envy said...

Hahahahaha! I am going to be saying "Crapper Snapper" all day. No, it doesn't take much to amuse me.

BTW - the top of your head is really cute :)

Bridget said...

Nikki, You have a very youthful looking forehead and eyebrows. I wish we could see more!
I am not going to share in the guilt because I know I have not been that interesting but I will share my cookies because they NEVER have raisins in them!
BTW, cooking dinner would be preferable to recovering from knee surgery...I actually miss the routine of making family meals. Hopefully I will be back at the stove very soon and then I can complain about making meals all of the time. lol

Darlene said...

Isn't it funny how we all get so caught up in everyone else's blogs?!? It's like they are your personal friends and you can't WAIT to see what they have to say or what they have posted!!! It really is CRAZY and I LOVE it!!! Hope you have a great weekend and get to relax a bit!

Deb said...

Hi Nikki, I see you're joining the bathroom divas, I took a picture when I was out once but it didn't turn out right, so I'll have to try again one day. Congrats on your awards you deserve them so. Deb

niartist said...

Hey Nikki! You deserve that award for sure, and thanks so much for all of the kind things you wrote about me. That means the world.
Artie

Neabear said...

I do the same thing. Get caught up in everyone else's blogs and don't get to doing something with mine. I am rapidly running out of time to do anything this morning, because I am having fun with all the others. But it does feel like I am visiting friends so that is a good thing!

onlymehere said...

Bribery by cookies? Hmmm, if there were only some way to send you some frozen cookie dough from my son's work! We buy it but I don't know how I'd ship it. The cookies are the best eaten the same day they're baked (hey aren't they all?)! I had a hard enough time finding a way to ship squeaky cheese to Justine!! I had to hit the post office right before closing so it would be in a cool truck and airplane most of the way! Maybe I'll just post some yummy cookies and you can virtually eat them!! LOL!! Congrats on both awards, you sure deserve them!

Melissa said...

Cute, I love your picture. That's how I would have taken one of myself, too.

Melissa

Linda said...

LOL so blame us for not posting huh?? LOL I was going to say it's all my blogging friend's fault that I don't get to more projects around the house! You are so much fun to read!!

Congrats on all the awards!!

Hey you look great from the eyes up!!

Raxx - A day in the life said...

Thank you for the birthday wishes Nikki, glad you came over to party too!

Bella Casa said...

The crapper snapper, lol ;) I actually took one at a festival last week, but have still not submitted it to Sheila, doubt I ever will ;) I had to laugh though because you can't see my face, stupid camera is in the way, lol...I'm obviously a novice!

Marie said...

LOL -- I have not even heard of the crapper snapper -- so much to learn for someone new to blogging :-)

gingela5 said...

You are just so dang popular. Look at you with all your awards! I've never heard of crapper snapper but it's a great concept! haha And I know my dogs are SO interesting so I will stop writing stories about them!

AJ said...

You crack me up:)

Charli and me said...

LOL I think we are all addicted to blogging :>) Congratulations on your awards. I will check out the sites you mentioned. Love your picture, but ah, I think you need to take a stool with you next time LOL You have such a wonderful personality. I love your blog!

Joy said...

Oh boy do I have some catching up to do! Look at how wonderful your bathroom and guest room look!!!! Now will you come to my house and help me with my projects???
Congrats on the awards! And I love the top of the head pic. Too funny!

I got the rub on decals at Walmart when I bought the stuff for the monogram project. I just finally found something to put them on. I've seen other bloggers use them on the center of white plates. It looks pretty cute.

Have a delightful weekend!

Mrs. B said...

Congratultons on the awards! I'll have to check out those blogs. Was the mirror really that high? Wow! "Crapper snapper" LOL!

Cheryl said...

Nikki,
You make me laugh every time I stop by to visit. Thank you for cheering my up. Psst.... send me your address, I have a little something to send you!

jeanne said...

Nikki, I just stopped by to thank you for your visit today. Thank you for your comment about my pitiful little yoyo project. I saw that Friday was the last day for a yoyo project, so I got myself in gear and made the yoyo wine bag. Don't laugh, the wine bag fell on the floor in my closet when I was looking for some fabric. lol. It was a gift out of the blue. It gave me the idea to put very 'few' yoyos on it and call it a project. I am going to be ashamed if I win that quilt. But not too ashamed to take it. Now you know my dark side. Smile.

Hugs...Jeanne

Suzann said...

Somehow I missed this "crapper snapper" thing. Not sure I'd be taking a photo of myself in any bathroom (LOL). But, quite a shot of the top of your head. - Too funny!
