Keep Quiet, but go ahead and grab some chocolate...

I woke up this morning and went to work. Because that is what I do...I work at ridiculously early hours in the morning...it's crazy, but I do it because I have to and because I want to be HOME during the day to chill with my kids.

I get home and get on my site to post my latest How I Imagine Heaven to Be...only to start hearing things. I quickly turn around to see where the sound is coming from...to tell you the truth, I'm a bit freaked. There is nothing behind me or in front of me and I am still hearing the "ssshhh" and the "Don't touch that" and "Wow, that really DOES look like chocolate". I'm thinking, "What in the world is going on here, am I getting PUNK'D? Is someone TeePeeing my blog? Because I know how much this blogger LOVES to TP..." Hmmm...I wonder
Then I spy...a line of field trippers from Camp Candid Carrie's site, which can mean only ONE thing...MY SITE IS THE DESTINATION FOR THE FIELD TRIP!


I was filled with elation! I couldn't believe my luck...after hounding, pounding, and stalking; Candid Carrie decided to give me some love after impersonating her here (Second video down...can't miss it, I look and sound exactly like her) I have felt eternally bonded with her...I continue to involve myself with her Foto Finish Fiesta and have loved the new friends that have come over to my site because of it! (One Crazy Chick and Kritta 22...I'm talking about you!

So Field Trippers...WELCOME...go ahead and roam around. I have posted labels down at the bottom that you MIGHT be interested in or maybe not or if you just want a good laugh, it usually involved me and my embarrassments. Besides my acting in the post just following this one I am a want-a-be movie star...well exercise video star...which I totally bombed and look like a fumbling idiot...but it's incredibly funny to watch and read about...

Oh and don't mind me showing off my ONE and ONLY blog award...yes, I feel I deserve more also, but for some reason people aren't spreading the blog award love to me...I know, boggles my mind also! But my good friend's husband, who I consider my friend also, Spencer, gave me this award...so THANK YOU Spencer...I'm sure we would have been great friends and maybe even soul mates if you weren't already married and soul mates to someone more sexier, cuter, nicer, funnier, and probably smarter than me...yea we might have had a go of it...Oh and if you grab the award...you have to award it to 7 other people, let them know you gave it to them...thems the rules, so don't break it!

So the first 5 bloggers who arrive on this site deserve this lovely award and so I am allowing you to "take" something from this blog! Go ahead...spread the love! I'm saving two of these awards to give to Natalie from Happy Havoc and The Bayou Belles and their Beaus because they reminds me of myself and I love their comments and feel connected to them somehow...

The rest of you can go ahead and take one of the Hershey Bars that I have lovingly cut letters out of and put in my header...don't worry about my header...it will survive. I mean, it's not EVERYDAY that CampCandidCarrie comes over to visit and I want to make your trip memorable! And NO I don't have the chocolate letters because I ate them...SORRY!

p.s. The only thing that takes away from my elation, is that CANDID CARRIE insists on referring to my age when we chat or email together in terms like, "Okay Juvenile Delinquent" or "Youth is wasted on the Young" and I want to reply back, "Fine Grandma" or "talk with you later first generation of EVE" but I don't want to be disrespectful because my parents taught me to respect my elders.

P.S.S. The Unword of the Day that I personally go and pick from the Unword Dictionary daily...totally describes my obsession with the internet...just wanted to get that off my chest...the first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem right? So I am offically calling myself a webaholic...anyone want to form a group?

My name is Kandace and I'm a webaholic!

Here for the field trip...a little sad that my mom forgot to pack my lunch but glad you are handing out chocolate!

The Bayou Belles and Their Beau said...

You're a sweetie. I'm honored you thought of me. Just for that, I'm adding you to my blogroll (because you know I'm so popular and I'm tired of looking for you through my bookmarks). I'll have to think about who I can award this too. Most everyone I know has tons of awards, so I'll have to give it to those who don't have as many and deserve it.

Your site is some much fun! We love coming on these field trips! However, we will pass on the chocolate. It doesn't come out of our fur very well.

Wow--there are alot of us Southern girls that blog. Is blogging only a Southern thing??? No, Candid Carrie's not-so-undisclosed location is not in the South. That disproves that theory.

Glad I found you on the field trip. Camp CC is so much fun!!!

Lauren said...

Carrie sent me over. Fun blog, cute kids and family. I have a semi-fun blog, no cute kids yet or hubby of my own...but I am trying!

Megan said...

My hand shot up when I saw the webaholic definition... Chocolate and the web. Yum! :)

Shannon said...

Hey A field trip to a place I visit alot. Though you have certainly spruced up the place for the group. Also thanks for pulling out the chocolate my blood sugar was getting low since I had to skip breakfast to get the kids off to camp. By the wa, Love your acting.

Candid Carrie said...

Wow, You are the most besterest hostess with the mostest! Look at you! I took a tour of the White House a few years back and they weren't nearly as gracious as you are today ;)

I am pleased that you took down the velvet ropes and let the public mingle. Do watch out for monkey poo, it is very difficult to remove that stain if it sets too long.

Michelle said...

Okay, so I tried to be a good camper and follow Carrie's warnings, but when I got here I saw chocolate, and all sorts of other fun stuff and I jumped right of my seat on the bus. Now I'm roamin' all around the site without any regard for personal safety. Ssshhhh don't tell Carrie. I think I can make it back to my seat before she sees me. Oh yeah I almost forgot, I too am a 'webaholic'. Don't tell anyone that either please.

Candid Carrie said...

Too late, Michelle. Don't worry though, you are among friends. We've only lost one blogger so far. Well, and a badge was stolen from Outnumbered2to1.

Hi,
Thanks for the chocolate but I think I ate too much, I have a tummy ache, Can I use your bathroom?

Shelle said...

Leezee52...yes you can use the bathroom but I can't be blamed for what it looks like...okay I can, but I'm not taking the blame...My husband could help out around here...sheesh!

Shannon--I'm so glad you noticed that I pushed everything in and under things...I mean spruced up the place for ya'll!

Megan--I just plain love what you have to say always...so I'm glad that you are right there with me...we can be webaholic's together...along with the others that have joined our group...I am a chocolate lover also...yum!
Michelle--I was totally with ya all the way...never one to tattle tell...but it's like Candid Carrie has eyes in the back of her head! It's creepy right?

Candid Carrie said...

I knew you were going to say that.

Mamahut said...

AND thanks for thinking I am sexier, cuter, nicer, funnier, and probably smarter than you :) I love a good compliment like that--however WRONG it may be!!! ♥

mrsb said...

Congrats on your award! And for getting a field trip to your blog. How cool!

You'll have to give me the tomatilla ranch dressing recipe. Pretty please? Sounds delicious!

And, yes, the sad little blueberry plant made us laugh, too. It was either that, or go drag it out by the roots and run screaming, lol!
