I'm in the Money, I'm in the Money!!

Soooo... Guess what?


Yes ma'am, yes sir, I have a job interview on Monday.

I'm running through the list of Do's and Don'ts in my head:
  • Don't begin the interview by saying, "C'moooon.... mama needs a new pair of shoes!"
  • Don't reach across the table and beg the interviewer for the job
  • Don't Do Don't try to bribe the interviewer with cupcakes
  • Don't tell the interviewer that I have skills I really don't have (i.e. nunchuck skills, bow hunting skills, computer hacking skills...)
  • Don't do this: 

  • Do act professionally
  • Do tell the interview how awesome I am
  • Do wear deodorant
As I think of more, I'll be adding them to my list.  Feel free to leave some suggestions ;) 

I'm really excited about it, too :) It sounds like a great opportunity and I'm just praying that it'll be as great as I'm making it out to be in my head.


In the meantime, I have recently been the lucky recipient of some fabulous awards and I want to take a minute to accept them:

First, here is the Sugar Doll Award that I received from Bibi of From Misery to Happiness in 365 Days.  If you get a chance, check out her other awesome blog: Gourmet Meals for Less (and try some yummy recipes, too, like these bad boys... *drool*...)

I'd like to pass this award on to Sammy of Surviving the Kitchen.  Keep up the fun recipes, girl!!

Next is the Happy 101 Award from Mandi of Life in Beta.  You **have** to see the fun stuff she knitsNow, this award came with some rules:
  • List 10 things that make me happy
  • Try to do at least one of them today (I'll have to do this tomorrow since today's almost over!)
  • Tag 10 bloggers that brighten my day
  • For those 10 bloggers who get the award, you then link back to my blog and create your own "makes you happy" list
♥ My sweet husband
♥ My great family
♥ My awesome friends (both real and bloggy!)
♥ ~Cupcakes~
♥ Polka dots
♥ Garlic-laden food
Kittens (OK, really any baby animals, but seriously... kittens...)
♥ A good hair day (am I right or am I right, ladies?)
♥ On the same note as the one above: being able to pull on fresh, straight-out-the-dryer jeans without doing the pants dance
♥ My home being clean :)

Before I choose the 10 bloggers to pass this award on to, allow me to accept and pass on my third award, the Lemonade Stand Award, graciously give to me by Christina from Three A's and a C.  The Lemonade Stand Award is awarded for being a blogger who shows great attitude and gratitude (yippee skippy!!)
