Blog Luuuurve! TMI Blog Award

I had a little brain meltdown yesterday. I was nominated for my first ever blogging award. I had to sit quietly for several moments taking it all in, wondering if this was some crazy blog prank. But here’s the thing, it wasn’t. It is all perfectly real.


The TMI Blog Award honors those blogs that discuss everything in detail and do it well. These bloggers aren’t afraid to discuss their most awkward, embarrassing and intimate experiences with honesty, humor and little to no filter. 


  • Thank the person who presented you with award.
  • Link back to the blogger who presented the award to you.
  • Share an awkward, embarrassing and intimate in 100 words or less.
  • Copy and paste the blog award on your blog.
  • Present the TMI Blog Award to 5 – 10 deserving blogs.
  • Let them know they have been chosen by leaving a comment at their blog.


So, I am humbly and graciously accepting the TMI Award from the gorgeous Lauren from Viciously Sweet. Not only was she the co-creator of the award, she made the hot award badge (I’m assuming the girl in the shower is based on her??). Thank you Lauren!


Um…this took me ages. Deciding on which awkward story to share was hard as there are so many. And how awkward do I go? I decided on a little story that may help to paint a much larger picture. This is typical me.

Several years ago I worked in a big, fancy hotel. I was the Business Centre Secretary. I sat at a little desk and customers of the hotel would come to me for their business needs. Typing, photocopying and general secretarial type activities. One day a VIP came to me for such aid. She sat in the comfy chairs in front of my desk whilst I typed her blah blah blah up. She kept a keen eye on me.

Typing is thirsty work, any typist will tell you. So mid sentence, I took a very large sip of hot tea. Have you ever taken a large sip of any drink, only to get a little bit of it go down your windpipe? Uh huh. So I couldn’t swallow it because I was choking. And I couldn’t spit it out because, well, we live in a civilised society where people just don’t go around spitting hot tea over everything. I sat there for a few seconds deciding what to do. My cheeks swollen with tea and my temperature rising. Well sorry civilisation…it was spit out my hot tea…OR die. I spat it out all over my computer monitor, in front of the VIP, with dramatic flair. I made a very dramatic noise too. That ppppffffffffftttttt noise.

How do you recover from that? It’s easy, you don’t. You just wipe everything down and keep going.


Here are my nominations. I hope it turns your day into a kick ass one like it did for me.
