Finding your G-spot and a Stylish blogger award

So... Thank you so much Sandy Lee for coining (at least for me) the term G-spot to refer to that magic place that people with the band are always searching for.   It's a combination of the Green Zone and the Sweet Spot... and of course she came up with G-Spot. 

Of course there are things that it has in common with the other G-Spot...

Women and smart men go searching for the G-Spot - Bandsters; both women and men, search for the G-Spot.
The G-Spot is hard to find for some and right there; front and center for others - The G-Spot can be found in a few weeks or it may take a year or so.
The G-Spot can make you scream at the top of your lungs - the G-Spot can make you scream with joy.
The G-Spot can lift your body straight off the bed - The G-Spot can make you feel as though you are lighter than air.
The G-Spot will leave you good and satisfied for a long time - The G-Spot will leave you satisfied for a good long while.
The G-Spot will bring you happiness, peace, and joy - The G-Spot will make you happy you can only eat a small piece of an Almond Joy
A good experience involving the G-Spot can leave you limp like a noodle - The G-Spot will let you eat a limp noodle.

So, while at first I thought Sandy Lee just had a dirty mind, (which is obviously completely the case) I totally think she's on to something here.  From now on, I'm totally calling it the G-Spot.  I can't tell you how much I love that.  (and it's good to know there are others out there - Sandy Lee - that have a dirty mind too)

And now onto the Stylish Blogger Award.  I've never gotten an award before and I was given the award by both Fit By 40 and Libby over at This One Time at Band Camp.  I can't thank them both enough - how completely fun for me, but I must dedicate this award to Ricky, my MIL, without whom this wouldn't have been possible.

For the Award I'm to:
Thank the person who gave you the award, reveal seven things about yourself, and nominate 15 bloggers who you have recently discovered or love. Then leave a comment on their blog letting them know they've been nominated.

Seven things - this could go in a lot of different ways....
  1. I go out and buy all the things I need for a hobby before I ever get around to trying it out. I, therefore, am ready at a moments notice to make a basket, build a clock, make any kind of jewelry you could want, do some scrap-booking, decorate a multitude of mirrors, paint, decorate clothing, sew, make a mosaic… unfortunately I could go on and on.
  2. When I entertain, I have a disease where I have to have enough of every single thing I serve to satisfy the crowd if every person only wanted that one thing – consequently leftovers are a constant in our home. Luckily my husband has grown to accept this of me.
  3. I am a stricter parent than my mom was, but I think having given my boys room to "fly and be free" is one of my greatest accomplishments.
  4. I have been misunderstood my entire life, people have assigned motive and meaning to my actions that couldn't be further from the truth - I've learned I can't do anything about what people think.  Along the same lines, lots of people are or have been afraid of me (their words not mine). It used to really bother me, now I mostly find it amusing.
  5. I am constantly amazed that I survived my youth relatively in tact and scared witless when I look at my friend's teenagers and think back to what I was doing at their ages - because they are WAY too young for drinking, smoking, getting high and sex.  (this terror does not extend to my own kids (mostly) because I am in deep denial)
  6. I am totally stumped as to why gay marriage is a big deal in this country.  Love just can't be bad.  I believe Jesus died for my sins, but I believe God created us all.  When we got married the first time it was by a Justice of the Peace and all we were doing was entering into a contract with the state and bada bing we were married.  I get the idea that certain churches might not want to perform the ceremony (well I really don't get that either but I'm closer there) but why so many people in our country spend time and money and energy that it's wrong for two people who love each other to marry is and forever will be beyond me.
  7. Whenever anyone talks about the time space continuum or time travel (and it's usually my husband and/or older son) I get a little light headed and want to flee.
And now for the 15 bloggers to nominate....  Well that's going to be a tough one as I follow and love about a million, so I think I'll send it out to some of the ones I have just recently found.
  1. Amber from Jewel in the Rough
  2. Dawnya at Evolution of a Black Butterfly
  3. Lisa at The rest of my Life
  4. Bones at Long Lost Bones
  5. I have to give it back to Fit by 40
  6. And also Libby over at This one Time at Band Camp
  7. Silverhaired Goddess from Lapband and Beyond
  8. Susan from Diary of a Lapband Mom
  9. Angie from This Banded Mommy's Journey (who I had the pleasure to meet recently)
  10. Rachel Thin Within-Life with my Lapband
  11. Stephanie and She's in there Somewhere
  12. Kellie from Something about Kellie
  13. Becky from Prudence Rising
  14. Liz from Tales from the Band
  15. Christina from Memoirs of a Daegu Fatty
  16. S over at This One Time at 'Band' Camp
Wow, that was fun!  I hope everyone has a fantastic G-Spot and G-Spot finding day!!!

Libby said...

OMG! #1 is totally me. I had so many craft supplies that I finally had to admit to myself that I was never going to get around to doing them all. I ended up donating most of the stuff to the craft room at The Gathering Place - a drop in center for homeless women and children here. I'm still not allowed in a Michael'e or Hobby Lobby. Too much temptation.

Love the list! Too funny!

And AMEN sister about gay marriage!

Sandi said...

Thanks Read, truly honoured!

I am with you about Gay marriages...Love is Love!


FitBy40 said...

Thanks for the does that mean I'm supposed to do it all over again?!
TOTALLY with you on the gay marriage thing. Why do people care so much about what other people are doing with their lives? And do we really think that God gives a hoot about what we do in our bedrooms? What, with world hunger, civil wars, epidemics and all, is he lookin down here saying "Oh, that Jack and John are at it again!". Sheesh.

Susan said...

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT! Thanks for the award. I am thinking now and have to post. . . been crazy in our house with all the snow days.

Sandy Lee said...

Ha Ha! I knew you could take something so innocent and make it truly worthwhile to read. Gave me a bit of a laugh on a day that is truly sad for me. Thanks. Will have to prime you with a few more jewels.

Drazil said...

You called Sandy a pervert little Miss Mind in the Sewer all day? LOL Where's the picture of the calendar? I'm dying to see it. I'm afraid to admit it - but your #1 could be mine.

Perfectionist Overachievers Unite!

Amber said...

Thank you so much for the award and I am truly honored.
I am so with you on #1. I get all my supplies, then never do anything because I feel like I have to know everything and then I think I'm going to eff everything up so I just don't start anything. All my supplies just sit in organized drawers...haha. ;)

Liz said...

Thank you soo much for the award! I am going to go back and read your blog from the beginning :)

Hi Read

I tried to comment yesterday but my internet went down and only just came back on.

First thank you for nominating me for the award :)

Lisa (at least I think it was Lisa) sent me directions on how to add it to my blog but now I have to go and find them (the directions that is) - since my desk is a mess it will take a while.

Also, I would like to say again how much I enjoy reading your blogs and I really think you would be successful if you decided to write a humorous novel - you have such a wonderful way with words and descriptions - :)
