Third Funniest Blogger, Baby!

I’m still positively shocked that anyone other than my mom thinks I’m funny. I mean, I occasionally make myself laugh, but sometimes I think I’ll eventually wake up. But, I don’t think this is just a dream, guys. I was voted 3rd Funniest in the Annual Bloggers Bash Awards. That must mean it’s really true. I’m kinda officially funny.

I’m so incredibly honored and excited to have made 3rd, ya’ll.

I was so excited and apprehensive the night before the awards (that happened in London, btw), I had horrible nightmares all.night.long.

They ranged from your usual holy-shit-I-forgot-pants-and-I’m suddenly-on-stage-in-front-of-a-room-full-of-people to the nightmare that I didn’t place.

See, these awards mean so much to me. Like, so.much. The excitement and anticipation leading up to the event was even better than a cupcake high.

Not only does winning an award help validate the fact that I call myself a humor blogger, the ABBA originated from the U.K. My Anglophile self is geeking out big time.

Not only do I feel pretty dang proud, I feel so lucky to have the readers I do. This was all thanks to YOU.

To those who took the time to vote for me, to those who take time out of their lives to read my words, to those who have liked, commented, shared, spread the word, THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

I’m immensely lucky for you all.

I also want to say a huge thank you to the ABBA committee. You have spent an immeasurable amount of time, heart, and thought into putting these awards together. Not only that, you’ve created an event that so many people have to look forward to and be excited about. So, thank you.

This is how I celebrated. Maybe I should be Fatty McDonuts.

For Shame, Fatty: The Annual Bloggers Bash Awards

Yesterday, the Annual Bloggers Bash Awards nominations were announced, and I legit had to take a Xanax before bed, because I was so keyed-up and excited. Not only was I nominated in the category for Funniest Blogger, but so many of my fabulous blogger friends were also nominated in the various categories. The excitement was palpable. It was electric-I could feel it through my phone as I checked various social media outlets for all of the posts about the nominations.

I am over the moon. The nomination in itself is enough for me to be happy for the foreseeable future, but I’d be lying if I said I wouldn’t love to be “crowned” the Funniest Blogger.

To make things easier for anyone potentially checking out my material, I thought I’d link to some of the posts I had the most fun writing and sharing with my readers.

Without further ado…

Because you need to know who I am:

It’s All About Yours Truly
