I Take It Back...

OK, so Sherri didn't say awful things about me on her blog today after all. In fact, she said nice things. Really nice things. She even made me cry a little. And she gave me an award. An award! Can you believe it?! She probably just did it because she felt bad about yelling at me yesterday (and telling me I have a big butt, which wasn't nice at all...) but I don't care. I'm takin' it! She even created it for me, which is just beyond cool!
It's called the You Raise Me Up Award. Damn, but that's a serious shoe, isn't it? Sherri probably knows that if I ever tried to wear anything like that, I'd be flat on my butt in about 30 seconds flat. Which I'm sure would make her laugh and laugh and laugh (she says nice things, but I'm telling you, that woman has a mean streak). Anyway, all that aside, it's a pretty spectacular award and I appreciate it more than she'll ever know. Sherri does (far more than) her fair share of raising people up, too.

So, I officially take back every mean thing I've ever said about my pal Sherri... including the cracks about menopause I've been dishing out lately. And I'm going to leave Big Al and his new Harley to her (and not flaunt the fact that he really loves me). 'Cause I'm a good friend that way. Oh, and I'm fabulous, too (if you didn't realize that, read the post below this one). Michelle says so. And she's brilliant and insightful so it must be true.

And now I'm going to scoot out of here because I'm trying to get ready to leave for DC, where I'm going to hang out and drink beer tonight with my adorable bloggy little sister, Heather, from And Now I'm a Grown-up. How cool is that?! Happy Friday!

That's one serious shoe... and a well-deserved award.

It must be getting close to cherry blossom time in DC. Have fun, drink a lot of wine, and don't fall into the Basin. ;)

Have fun in DC!

Congrats - the post was great, the award even better. Those shoes would make me cry, but I have Fred Flintstone feet, so I'd never wear 'em anyway.

Have a rockin' good weekend. If you guys get wild and sing karaoke, please make a recording of it.

Also, if you pick up any hotties, get a photo and have a good time, and do something wild and out of character... crap! There is nothing out of character, is there?

Never mind. *leaving*

Congrats on the award. Love the shoe! I think you should have to lap the mall once in them as a kind of acceptance. You know, to show you're worthy. ;o)
Have fun in DC. Have one for me!

I love the shoe but like you it would kill me, however I do have a teenage daughter that would die for that shoe. Congrats on the award and have in D.C. (I don't drink beer so have a shot for me!)

Diane, you are so funny and so loved.;))
Please have a nice Friday and enjoy the beer drinking evening with Heather.;))
Heather has a special meaning to me as the flower bearing that name grows all over Ireland.;))

Hey Diane :) Sherri said to tell you Big Al is taken! LOL I like your blog a lot..I'll definitely be back :D

Heather said...

Yay for the award and double YAY for you coming to hang out with me!!! Just got done with my last seminar... headed out to grab a quick bite with people before they fly out. Should be back to the hotel before you get here, but call me for sure and I'll get back ASAP if I'm not!!
Bring on the beer and the good times. :)

boneman said...

hey, just find a big belt and strap a pillow on your....butt.
(should I be discussing your butt? Dang! Maybe not, eh?)

katdish said...

Hi there! You're a woman after my own heart. I'm glad I'm not the only that Sherri has for a "role model". The award title was very nice, even if those were some serious hooker shoes. Which reminds me, have fun in DC!

Maithri said...

You crack me up... Go read my comment..

Love ya, M

sherri said...

Diane- apology accepted.
I'm glad some of my peeps are stopping by!

You'd have to raise every doorway in the house for those!

San Diego Momma said...

Have a great trip to DC! You're not wearing those shoes, are you?

Cuz the beer might make you a little wobbly.

Lee said...

That's a shoe and a half, but well deserved.

Oh, and look out for the light fittings.

blueviolet said...

I hope you have a most wonderful time!

Jenners said...

I'm looking forward to some drunken blogging from you Heather my friend!

And you deserve any and all awards that come your way.

Debbie said...

Julie said...

Good morning! Just checking in and getting caught up on my blog reading! Happy Saturday!

Namine said...

That's an awesome shoe!

LMN said...

That is a great award - but I kind of wish you had the shoes. Not to wear, of course, but just to hang up somewhere as a reminder of your great blogging prowess.

And of course, I hope you have a wonderful time in D.C.!!!
