Bits of Awesome & An Award!

I decided to start doing my "Bits of Awesome" posts again on Fridays. They're just a fun post to bring in the weekend. Lots of awesome stuff going on:

*I am officially a Katy Perry fan. She hooked me with this song: (It's my new fave!)

* LTUE is coming up next week & I get to have lunch with Erin & Peggy! Whoot-whoot! All the rest of you better be there too. Everyone is invited! If you want more info, hit one of their blogs.

* I'm Hearing Voices Bloghop is next week too! If you aren't signed up - GET SIGNED UP! It's going to be a blast!

* AND... Hope Roberson hooked me up with the Liebster Award! Thanks Hope!!!
5 Random Things About Me Are:
  1. I'm addicted to the "BIG BANG THEORY."
  2. I don't like oranges. It's the "pulp" part. Can't swallow that crap. - Bleh-
  3. I'm the only girl - with 2 brothers. My mom said it was a good thing because I probably would have killed my sister. (Now that I'm older a sister would be fun.)
  4. I'm EXTREMELY independent & I may or may not be a little bossy.
  5. My son thinks I should become a chef, but I once messed up a fruit salad. Yeah, it's possible!
And now to pass this award on to some wonderful peeps! Might I just say... its good to see the award love flowing around the blogosphere again?

Samantha said...

I love Katy Perry! She's so cute and quirky...tons of fun :) Don't feel too bad about the fruit salad thing. I'm only just now perfecting Ramen Noodles.

I'll definitely check out these bloggers. Have a great weekend!

Jennifer Lee Young said...

Me too, I love Ms.Perry or is it Mrs? Anyway, CONGRATS on your award!!

Ruth Josse said...

Katy Perry is fun to listen to! See you at LTUE!

Cristina said...

I wish I was coming to lunch with you guys, that would've been awesome.

I have 2 brothers as well, and I don't think I would've done well with a sister as a kid... but I agree that now it would be awesome to have a sister.

Katy Perry is cool, I've just discovered her recently and really like her stuff.

have an awesome weekend!

David P. King said...

Yay! Leigh will be at the table with us! Awesome. It'll be good to see you again. And congrats on the award love. :)

Angela Cothran said...

I love how sassy you are :) I wish I was going to LUTE. I would totally be down for lunch. We will have to do it at Storymakers :)

Tasha Seegmiller said...

I'm not going to be at LTUE but, like Angie said, we have to make lunch happen at Storymakers.

Thanks for the award Leigh! I am checking out these other bloggers now!

Coleen Patrick said...

My son and I watch BBT together--I have 2 on the DVR ready to go for this weekend. Yay!

Cortney Pearson said...

Yay, awards! Your fruit salad thing made me laugh. One time I was trying to make these harvest tart things and the recipe said to "blend" flour, sugar, salt, etc. Sooo....yeah, I did. I put it in a BLENDER!!! LOL I know a LOT more about cooking now, ha ha!!! And I like oranges, but I don't like peeling them. Fun to know more about you!!

Kelley said...

Uh oh! I found something we don't agree on. But it was bound to happen :)

I do not like Katy Perry. I do like her song ET. But that's it.

Oh well...I'll just go make a fruit salad ;)

Jenny S. Morris said...

Katy Perry is my guilty pleasure. LOL. She had me hooked with her first song. I do think the idea they come up with for this video was more for cry factor than to stick with the original written story.

I don't like the little white strips that you have to peal off on oranges but I still eat them.

Have a great weekend.

Iain said...

I’m with you on the Fruit Salad. It’s tricky stuff.
I managed to burn a salad once!

L.G.Smith said...

Heheh, I'm a little bossy too. I would probably make you eat your oranges. :PP

Have a great weekend.

Jade Hart said...

Aw, I'm jealous that I can't come have lunch with you guys... I'm sure it will be a ton of fun. And messing up a fruit salad - how exactly!!
And I'm like you too - pulp, what is that!?

Mark Koopmans said...


Thanks for the comments - as always - and I'm so glad I'm not the only one with a bookcase like mine!

PS....Don't rip the ManCard from my dying fingers, but I think KP rocks, too... *love* that "fireworks" song:)

You have a very loving son, by the way, if he's advising you to be a chef, but after reading #5, I think hubby should tell you to just step away from the ruined fruit salad :)

Cassie Mae said...

So I was gonna comment, but I scrolled down and instantly got distracted by that hunk of drool-worthy Ryan Reynolds.

Something about congrats on the... Oh my gosh. He looks amazing in white!

Oh, right... the award. And Katie P... Look at that sorta smile. Dude, getting a little warm in the face.

*shakes head* I like most of her songs, but...

No, can't talk about that right now. Must stare at Ryan for the rest of the day.

J. A. Bennett said...

I grew up with 4 brothers. I got a sister, but I was 11 when she was born, so we haven't really gotten the chance to know each other until now. Oh and I love Oranges! hehe. Good luck with those Spring Rolls! You have not been helping my pregnancy cravings lady! (oops, did I just let that slip?) Anyway. Can't wait to see you next week!!

Lara Schiffbauer said...

Thanks, Cassie, for pointing out the photo of Ryan Reynolds. Don't tell my husband I ogled this afternoon. ;)

My kids love the Firework song by Katy Perry. She's growing on me, I think.

Leigh, I think you should get an award for surviving with two brothers!

twentysomethingfictionwriter said...

I have award for you on my blog! Thanks again for the one you gave me :)

Stacy S. Jensen said...

I'm an oldie, but I think Katie Perry is a goodie. Congrats on the award. Your five random things were awesome. I'm an older sister by 14 minutes. :)

Misha Gericke said...

I also adore Katy Perry's new song, and the video is so freaking sad and beautiful.

Susanna Leonard Hill said...

I confess that I also like Katy Perry, that I can also mess up fruit salad, and that I have a younger sister who can be quite bossy :) Congrats on the well-deserved award!

Cheryl Velasquez said...

Leigh congrats on your award! And liet me say I love your blog. You make me laugh and love your writing tips. Thanks for sharing.

Deana said...

I'm a Katy Perry fan too and Big Bang Theory rocks!

I so with I was going to LTUE:( Have fun!

Anonymous said...

I absolutely adore Katy Perry! I love her Fireworks and Teenage Dream Remixes. They are to die for! Gosh, now I have to listen to some of her stuff before I freak out! :)

Trisha said...

I haven't yet jumped on the Katy Perry bandwagon, but I haven't heard THAT song yet so will give it a go ;)

Congrats on the award!!

I can actually cook (basically simple stuff that only involves a fry pan or pot, no ovens for me thanks), but I don't enjoy it.

Melissa Sugar said...

I love Katy Pery also. Congratulations on the Liebster Award. I received it a couple of weeks ago, but now I think I messed up. I did not realize we were supposed to post five random facts. I guess I can go back and post them. I love reading random facts about others.

Kathi Oram Peterson said...

I'm so glad I came across your blog. Congrats on your award.

Leslie Rose said...

Katy Perry, Big Bang Theory, AND Maze Runner. You are dripping with awesomeness. I'm just finishing The Scorch Trials. You have to grab it as soon as you finish Maze.

Jennifer Lee Young said...

I just started watching The Big Bang Theory -funny stuff! Congrats on the award!!

One more thing, I just saw that I made your blogroll!!! I'm honored, I think this is a 1st for me, thx girl :)

Donna K. Weaver said...

Oh, my heck! I'd never seen the video to the song. What a bummer! That's even worse than the words alone.

Congrats on the award!
