And I'd Like to Thank All the Little People...

First, I'd like to thank my parents for giving birth to all 10 lbs 7 ozs of me. (Technically, my dad did not give birth to me, but thanking my parents for conceiving me somehow seems inappropriate.)

And I want to thank my mom for finishing college and getting her degree in English. This has facilitated my writing skill and infused me with a vocabulary of big words.

I'd like to thank my dad for teaching me how to use a computer, including spell check, since I got his spelling skill which means that I am unable to spell any of the big words I know how to use.

Most importantly, I'd like to thank Laurie from My Priceless Treasures who gave me this award.

Laurie is a friend of mine in real life and her blog is awesome. (It is, unfortunately, private since her husband's line of work has something to do with drugs.) Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Please picture me wearing a (modest) $8000 red dress with $800 red and white pumps. Picture me clutching a microphone, shaking slightly with excitement. And while you're at it, picture me looking like Halle Berry.

Does anybody else have a problem with the "s" in this award. It appears to say "Your blog is a treasures" which is odd. Whoever designed this, wasn't from around here...

Jenna, you looked beautiful accepting that award! And your speech was great! Loved it! (And the s bothered me also but I figured it was just me!)

Very cute format --love it. It definitely thought it looked like an "s" only I thought it said TREASURS- with no E. Still cute though. Congrats on the award. And by the way you look stunning in that dress! Oh and Halle Barry is pregnant now which you are not anymore-- so I'll picture the non-Pregnant Halle. When you picture me please picture...someone like Reese Whitherspoon.

Congratulations! Well deserved.

Jenna said...

Liza, You are so right! There is no e. Fortunately it has a really cute design.

I'm aghast! I forgot Halle was pregnant. Please picture the non-pregnant Halle or perhaps Jennifer Aniston.

Congrats!! You're a babe! And yes, the font and spelling on the award look a little funny, but still cute.

Please picture me as anyone of the following tall(-er than I'll ever be) and much more slender (than I can dream of being) beauties-- Salma Hayek; Penelope Cruz; or Jennifer Lopez (I LOVE her long luscious locks!!)

Jennifer Aniston has your hair color-- that works, I like it!
