Fabulous Friday - A day late!

Better late than never, right? The last two days have been absolutely crazy! Thursday morning I was up at 4:50 and down to the hotel gym by 5am. I worked out for an hour, got ready, repacked, checked out & was on my way to deliver my Time Manag*ment session. Once done, I was on the road to Boston to fly home.

Have I ever told you that I've developed some sensitivity to oysters? Can't eat them. Well, I can eat them, but I just can't, um...retain them. Le sigh - and I used to LOVE them! It seems that I've managed to develop this sensitivity to lobster. I wasn't completely sure until Thursday when in Logan I had a cup of lobster bisque. Bad move on my part. I felt it coming on as soon as I had eaten 4 bites. No more lobster for me - and it was so good too!The worst part of my airport dining experience? The man next to me who decided he needed to be on the phone the entire time, speaking super loudly even after his steamed clams were delivered. Which smelled awful. Which made me hurry up and leave to get to my gate. Where I proceeded to fall asleep to the grumblings of my stomach. Finally aboard the plane, I got settled into my seat & prayed for an uneventful flight. Yeah, not so lucky. The stomach was twisting and turning, my ears were awful (I've been congested & flying is never fun when you're like this) and the pilot decided to very, very slowly descend - pain on ears. Finally home, I collapsed in bed, exhausted.

In the office yesterday I was slammed - getting ready for next week's trip to New England. I had every intention of doing Fabulous Friday, but never had a chance! So, without further ado, a shortened version of Fabulous Friday.

Amber over at Life As We Know It gave me the Splash Award. Thank you Amber! If you haven't been to her blog yet, you simply must! She is a Tiger fan - GEAUX Tigers! She's also absolutely beautiful.
The Splash Award is given to alluring, amusing, bewitching, impressive, and inspiring blogs.

I like to think that I'm all of these things, but like most women, I'm not so sure. Thanks Amber for the much needed self confidence boost!

When you receive this award, you must:
  • Put the logo on your blog/post.
  • Nominate & link up to 9 blogs which allure, amuse, bewitch, impress or inspire you.
  • Let them know that they have been splashed by commenting on their blog.
  • Remember to link to the person from whom you received your Splash Award.
In following along with the rules, I'm passing this on to the following bloggers:
I'm highlighting this as part of Fabulous Friday since I think all of these women are fabulous & I adore Amber for passing this on to me!

Sarah of It might seem crazy but we call it Life was my swap partner recently. She is totally on the ball & my scarf was waiting for me when I got home from New England! Sarah, yours will be in the mail this week - I didn't have a chance to get out while I was away. She sent me a simply wonderful teal blue scarf & included a tube of her favorite lip gloss. I can't tell you what her's will be, but I hope she'll love it!

So for this late edition of Fabulous Friday (on a Saturday) I'm highlighting fabulous bloggers. Make sure you pop over to each of these women's blogs - they're simply FABULOUS!!

PS: I apologize for my lessened commenting - I was just slammed last week.

Yuck, I hope you feel better soon! I think we develop food sensitivities as we age? I'm going to the allergist next Friday because I think I'm developing a sensitivity to certian grains and dairy products. We'll see!

Glad you got home safe and sound, and even with a treat to boot! I can't wait to get my scarf!

Geaux Tigers is right! Did you go to LSU? Crazy game yesterday!

Amber said...

I'd be so sad if I became sensitive to any kind of seafood! It's kind of a staple here.

You totally deserve the award and I'm glad you were able to pass it on to some other amazing bloggers :-)
