Fashionably Late: Stylish Blogger Award!


I'm such a bad award-receiver. I've been given this award by at -least- 4 people in the past few weeks and have neglected to blog about it. So, Thank you to Miss Bossy, The Ninja, Betty2Tone and Georgiane for this lovely Stylish Blogger Award!!
 I'm supposed to share 7 things about me but I'm terrible with these things and  I can only think of 5 at the moment so here they are!

1. I like cheese--a LOT.
All kinds, all colors, all textures. My husband and I often go to import delis and randomly select a new cheese to try. I don't drink milk because it freaks me out that it will solidify in a day but I guess really hard, stinky milk (aka cheese) is okay. I once bought "cheese food slices" by mistake. It' not really cheese. I don't know what it is! I tried to melt it in the microwave and it would NOT melt!! It just got a bit softer. Pj came in, put some in a spoon and tried to melt it with a blow torch (because I do have blow torches just laying around) and it still would not melt! The spoon became white hot but the cheese got a little softer, a bit warmer and eventually burnt. *shudder @ cheese food*

2. I'm an eyelash fanatic.
 I can leave the house with messy hair, no lipstick and a crazy outfit but I don't go out without mascara. My all time favorite mascara is Maybelline Full n' Soft. I'm slowly starting to experiment with false lashes, even though I feel a little like a drag queen in them but if the queens can look that good in them, I guess I can too!!

3. Speaking of Queens, I have "Drag Queen Movie Marathon" days when I'm at home alone, my chores are done and I'm bored or sewing something.
I have a pretty good little collection of movies featuring drag queens so I watch Connie and Carla, The Birdcage, Priscilla, Queen of the Desert and To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything: Julie Newmar.  One of these days, I'm going to go to the Drag Queen pageant in St Louis. The year before last, I just had Olivia and the year before that, I was on my honeymoon that weekend but I will go some day! I would LOVE to go back stage and get my hair and makeup done and figure out how they walk SO long in those heels. How awesome would that be?! p.s. I feel a drag queen movie marathon coming on!

 4. I hate when people tap on the glass at aquariums and zoos.

 Seriously. I was at Red Lobster a few weeks ago and saw a kid, about 10 years old doing it and I told him he needs to knock it off. Getting chided by a perfect stranger freaked him out and he stopped, thank goodness or I would have had to tap on his head. My parents would have killed me if I tapped on glass as a kid!

  5. I'm a picky tea drinker.

I only like unsweetened tea- hot or iced but no sugar. If a pitcher of iced tea has one teaspoon of sugar in the whole pitcher, I can taste it. My southern relatives would disown me if they knew this!

Now to pass this on to 7 Stylish Bloggers. I've been reading a lot of crafty blogs lately, so I'm passing this one on to bloggers who create with style! :) I hope you are as inspired by these talented, creative ladies as I am!

  1. nice to know some additional things about you!

    I am a cheese fiend too,although it's pretty easy in the UK, we have some great cheese and of course we're not a million miles away from France too, YUM!

  2. This is the second post in my feed that has mentioned dragqueens! :D You should rent the movie "Kinky Boots"

  3. I love "To Wong Foo"! I haven't seen it in ages! :o

  4. congrats to you for receiving such fine recognition by your peers, Well Done!

    I too love cheese. I had a girlfriend years ago who would say to me " How can you that stuff, it looks the same on your thighs as it does on the plate" Ouch! Did'nt slow me down...much.

    I would also like to commend you for correcting a poor ignorant child about glass tapping. I am hoping this is a lesson heard by his parents but now reinforced by you, it will sink in.

  5. wow, that bit about the cheese food is pretty disturbing. how can my stomach digest something a blowtorch can't melt?!
    anyways, I'm a huge lashes person, too, it is the item I don't usually leave the house without. I don't like to wear fake lashes, just b/c it's too much time, but I've heard individual lashes are the way to go.
    that's funny how much glass tapping annoys you.

  6. I feel ya on the iced tea, thankfully so does about half of my southern family. In fact there is such a divide that we have to have 2 pitchers at family events, one sweet and one unsweet.

  7. Lovely to read these, I'm also a completely obsessed cheese fiend! xxx
