Santa Loves My Blog!

Merry Christmas to all my friends, family, followers, and neighbors in the Bloggerhood! I hope you’re enjoying a lovely morning surrounded by your loved ones and a nice stash of goodies. Apparently, Santa (and my hubby) think I should keep blogging, since I found these kick ass shirts under the tree this morning. I also received an early Christmas present last week in the form of a contract with a publisher! All this encouragement may cause me to finally start calling myself “a writer” without stuttering. ;-) Merry Christmas to me! Keep calm and blog on my friends!

Will The Real Little Miss Wordy Please Stand Up?

I think it’s clear that I love to write. The more I write, the more I want to write. I am flattered to have hundreds of followers in the short time I’ve been blogging…only three months actually. I am taken aback by the kind words, the encouragement, and mostly that there are people all over the world (some in places I couldn’t point out on the map) with nothing better to do than read my random thoughts. ;-) In all honesty, when fellow bloggers think of me when it comes to award time, I feel like somewhat of a farce. I almost look over my shoulder to see if there’s someone else standing up to be recognized as the real Little Miss Wordy. There is so much talent out here that I am just pleased as punch to have snuck in the exit door when no one was looking. Shhhh…don’t rat me out! Stick around and hopefully I’ll write something that will touch you in some way. If I can make one person truly feel …

What? You Like My Blog? Piss Off!

“Nice shoes.” “Great hair.” “Love your outfit today.” All fine compliments, and all compliments that would bring a smile to our face, brighten our day, make us stand a little taller. I’m five foot two and half and I’ll take any opportunity for a little more height, but it’s more than that. A compliment is a positive thing to be shared and received in a positive light. You wouldn’t respond to any of these compliments with a “Piss Off” or a “How dare you?!” would you? Okay, well if you would then maybe you should stop reading and check out my top posts on the right side bar. In the blogging world there are awards. I’m sure you’ve seen the One Lovely Blog Award or the Very Inspiring Blog Award, to name a couple. When I first started my blog, I was fearful the blogging world would be an extended gripe session for those whose friends banned them from Facebook, a larger canvas for those from Twitter who couldn’t describe their gripe in 160 characters …

Feed your Fitness Soul…Physically, Mentally, Spiritually

Kate over at BeyondFitPhysiques.com found my blog, and asked if she could interview me and feature littlemisswordy on her site. I was thrilled given that I wholeheartedly believe fitness goes beyond our physiques. Well, being littlemisswordy, as I tried to answer Kate’s questions individually I kept wanting to say more, wanting the ladies reading this to get the full message of the importance of feeding your body physically, but also feeding it mentally and spiritually. I hope I achieved that here. FEED YOUR FITNESS SOUL…PHYSICALLY, MENTALLY, SPIRITUALLY! We all have a story, and we all have a fitness story. Yes, even you! We all have something we turn to that feeds us physically, mentally and spiritually. Fitness is about finding that balance among all of these things so as not to tip the scale so to speak. All the personal trainers in the world and all the health and fitness magazines on the stands can’t tell you what that balance is or how to achieve it, the balance for each of us being as unique …

Liebster means “favorite” and “dearest” in German…I think.

So…I didn’t make it into the Top 25 Blogs over at Circle of Moms today. Rejection isn’t pretty, but I did feel the love from all those who voted for me. :-)  I did however, get this prestigious little Liebster Award given to up and coming bloggers! A HUGE thank you to  Mom’s Eye View NYC and Adventures of a Whitty Girl  for nominating me! I am really enjoying both of their blogs and recommend you head over there and check them out. Mom’s Eye View NYC is life from the perspective of an Urban Mom in NYC. Being a Jersey girl myself, she had me at hello. Adventures of a Whitty Girl shares her thoughts on being a new mom to the cutest little Owl (her daughter’s nickname) I have ever seen! I also recommend the following blogs (Doing it here so you don’t feel compelled to have to read til’ the end. You’re welcome!): The Chatter Blog, Motherhood Is An Art, Keeping it Real, My Chocolate Soul, Inner Angels and Enemies, 1 Story a …

Real or Disney? Round One (DP Challenge)

Ever have a thought that lingers in your head for days, not losing it’s grip no matter what else is going on around you? Artists create a beautiful painting or sculpture. Writers turn it into a bestseller or just settle for a blog post. Kids…well kids just voice it in the form of a whine or a tantrum or sometimes even a song they walk around the house singing, “my sister is a little nerd. mom doesn’t like it when I say turd.” What can I say? I have a six year old boy who finds all things poop hilarious. I’m not sure what specifically sparked this one for me. Was it my upcoming Disney trip? The Presidential debate? The latest issue of People magazine? For days, I have been wondering when our society become overpopulated with Disney Creations? The online Merriam-Webster Dictionary does not currently have a definition for this term, but does define the term Disneyfication. Dis·ney·fi·ca·tion noun \ˌdiz-nē-fə-ˈkā-shən\ Definition of DISNEYFICATION : the transformation (as of something real or unsettling) into carefully controlled and safe …
