Thank you Libby at An Eye for Detail for this Stylin' Stamp of Approval.
Last week she gave me the Stylish Blogger Award.
I am totally flattered because Libby is a big time decorista.
Not only should you stop by and check out her blog but read her bio.
She is a fascinating woman.
This award, like others that I have seen out here amongst bloggers, asks that I reveal seven things about myself.
Do you know it is kind of hard to come up with seven things about myself that at are all interesting?
Maybe I will go the self-deprecation route.
1. It is 12:26 and I am still wearing the clothes I wore yesterday.
I slept in them
and no I am not hung over.
It's not that I slept in late either.
I was up by 8.
In my defense Mr. Rosie had to go to bed early. I didn't.
Because he was already sleeping I opted to not make any more commotion than necessary and so I slept in my clothes.
Truth be told, I sleep in my clothes a lot. I am not the pulled together person you think I am.
I will never measure up to my mom.
2. I Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, New York and occasionally New Jersey are my mindless guilty pleasure.
I can't be bothered with Atlanta.
No, too many IQ challenged skanks that just make Atlanta look bad.
Really? This is Atlanta's Elite?
Check out the ego on this one. She arrives at the She by Sheree fashion show in a freaking Cinderella carriage!
Trash with cash. I can't be bothered.
I can't wait for RHNY to start though and did you see the Beverly Hills Reunion last night?
I know she and Kelsey Grammer deserve each other but at times I feel a bit of pity for Camille... until I remember she is getting like a gazillion million in the divorce settlement.
Too bad she is vowing not to come back next season.
Even if she does misuse the words pernicious and Machiavellian.
She is so much more interesting in her kiss- other- women's- husbands -on -the- mouth and I have four nannies for my two children kind of way than this sniveling igmotard.
Moving on. This is supposed to be about me. :)
3. I am 5' 10"
I won't tell you what I weigh though. Actually I don't even know because I haven't been on a scale in years. I turn my back when I have to get on the scale at the doctor's office and I forbid them to say the number out loud.

I usually like being that tall but sometimes I do feel like a bit of an amazon around my petite friends.
So I lie too and tell them I'm 6 foot four. Gee-sch.
4. A lot of people ask me what color my bedroom is........
I hate to admit this but it is beige and I love it.
I know. Really? But it is the one place where I am happy to be devoid of color.
I like a calm uncluttered zen look in that space.
Why haven't I done a post on that room? Because it is in dire need of an update.
The problem is I have more pressing spaces calling to me in this big old money pit we call home.
5. My best post was the one I wrote after my dad died in October of "08. Sometimes, when I really need it to happen, the right words just seem to come to me. I believe God had something to do with that one.
6. I have never cooked a turkey.
I never intend to.
Our Thanksgiving dinners always come in a box and fully cooked.
7. Another true confession: I have faux flowers in my house.
I can hear your shrieks and wails from here.
They aren't THAT bad.
They aren't the cheesy plastic kind that screamed fake from across the room, but never-the-less, I have them.
I do promise to not buy any more.
I hope Libby doesn't want her award back.
The second part of receiving this award is passing it on to ten other bloggers.
How do I decide?
Everyone I follow is worthy of this.
Some of them I have given an award to before so in an effort to share the love I have chosen these not yet BeColorful picked sites for their content, humor, writing and/or photography.
I hope you can find the time this cold January weekend to give them a look see because they are all worth it.
In no particular order:
1. Room Remix
7. kfd designs
10. The Creative Paintbrush - just because she's last don't overlook this one. Her most recent post blew my socks off.
Happy reading and thank you again.
