Sauciness, Awards and Prizes

It's a lovely start to Sunday when you wake up and realize your blog is considered a saucy one! This week I'm one of the Saucy blogs of the week on The Secret is in the Sauce (SITS).

I joined SITS last weekend when I found The Button (above) on several people's pages. It's a blog dedicated solely to help those addicted to comments. Here's the five step program:

Step 1: Check in daily to roll call (comment on the daily post)
Step 2: Visit the blog of the person who checked in before you to say hello
Step 3: Visit the featured blog of the day and shower that blogger with love (aka comments, comments and more comments)
Step 4: Visit saucy blogs of the week (like yours truly's)
Step 5: Participate on all the awesome giveaways they hold

Seriously. Why didn't I find this sooner?

So to all you new sillyheads coming by way of SITS, welcome!

Also, last night Susanna-Cole from Girl Meets NYC awarded me the I Love Your Blog Award! It's a cutie petutie one and I thank her so much for giving one to me (especially since I think her place is no less than fantastic what with those pictures and inspiring posts. She always has me thinking about my own actions).


In turn I shall give this award to curious girl, {sugarlens}, fancy feet and mindless junque (by Heather, one of the creators of SITS!)

Congrats ladies :)

And finally, I was chosen to Pay It Forward by Maki from w/ Love, Sincerely- Posh Mom's Diary earlier this week. So I in turn have to do something nice for three other people. So here's what I'm going to do:

As most of you know, I'm going away in two weeks for my solo escape to Cancun (eeeeee! Cannot wait! Anyway...) I definitely don't want to leave you guys without your daily dry toast for five days and I definitely don't want to park my butt at a computer during my vacay (Ok, I do but that's because I have problems) so instead I'm looking for guest bloggers. If you would like to write a sweet little entry about ANYTHING (so long as it's PG-13 and non-boring-as-all-get-out) please leave me a comment on this post. I'll choose a whole slew of you on Friday, provided a slew of you are interested, and will ask you to e-mail me your entries by the following Thursday, Nov 6th so I can schedule it in.

And out of those who participate, three will be randomly chosen to receive a little souvenir from Paradise and will be asked to Pay It Forward to three more people. So you get to write for me, you get to shamelessly plug your own blog/advertise whatever it is you're selling on Etsy, and you might win a little prize while I keep my readers entertained; it's win-win!

So let me know if you're interested! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday :)

  10. I am totally blogger-stupid. How in the world do you add that SITS pic as a link or whatever? They say copy and paste...but what type of "gadget" do I add it as? LOL I hate this techy stuff, I'm too old. I've decided officially.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Tooj, I leave on the 8th and add an html gadget and copy and paste the link in that box. I should just join the Genius bar, huh? I'll check in to see if it worked for you or just shoot me another comment. I'm here. I have no life obvi.

    And thanks so much to the rest of you for your congrats! I'm making the rounds to check out your blogs :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. I would love to know, how the hell did you go from having 15 followers to 21, in just a blink?
    any secrets?

    ReplyDelete
  25. "The secret is in the sauce," lol!

    No, really, I don't know. I lucked out in getting chosen as a "saucy blog" for the week and so people know I exist now, which always helps I guess.

    Clearly I haven't changed anything else. I'll always keep writing my randomness regardless :)

    I do hope any new readers will venture over to the other blogs I keep tabs on and check them out too. They're all great!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Awwwww! Thanks for the award. I heart your blog too. You are the sauciest!

  32. Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog! So, you're "Dry as Toast"...have seen you listed on other blogrolls. Nice to finally meet you!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Thanks for another award!

    And wow, 37 (38 including this one) comments. You are getting quite popular missy! I am still hovering around 1 or 2 comments per post. One from you and one from my husband. Hehe.

    Thanks for visitng my blog everyday! And don't forget the little people when you are rich and famous! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Again, thanks for the love guys!!

    christie, Yup, that's me! Pleased to meet you and again, happy bday :)

    And sugar, three (four including this one) of those comments are from me. And I always stop by your place, it's too cute. I won't forget you guys so no worries. I'm pretty sure it'll die down after a while...especially since I'm way too concern right now about the World Series to write about anything that other people might actually care about!

    So zzzzz's for everybody until the series is over (hopefully tonight!!!)

  37. Congrats on being Saucy! I guess you can use that sauce to go with your dry toast! :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Look at all the comment love!!! I'm not jealous that you're going to Cancun. Nope. Not at all. Thank you for the sweet award. It made my day!! And the fact that I'm NOT going to Cancun way easier to swallow.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Congrats to a saucy blogger from another saucy blogger. It is just too exciting!

    Oh...Cancun...I AM jealous. I love Mexico..in fact we were just checking the local weather online and hubs said he would rather be checking weather in Cabo! Have a great time. I have never been a "guest blogger" but would give it a try. I would love to do a day on "what not to wear to CANCUN!"....fabulous finds for winter that would never work in CANCUN and would most definitely also have to post a couple of DON'T pictures! (you know the ones with the black bars over the peep's eyes!) Except I'm almost sure there wouldn't be black bars over my pictures eyes! If you are going to wear it....well...be prepare to defend it baby!

    Enjoy the sauciness this week.
