I Know Cool People. At Least, I Think They're Cool- You Should Too!

Holy Hell! I didn't die! I just ran away for a while. Sorry about that, to anyone who looks at my posts and wondered where I'd gone.

"So, what were you doing?" you may ask. Well, I went on the adventure of a lifetime. I won the lottery, pawned off my children on their grandparents, and my husband and I spent weeks having sordid adventures around the world. The details are just too shocking to put in a blog.

Yeah, not even a little.

The real answer is: life? I got consumed reading some books. I do that from time to time, and it never ends well for anything else in my life. And then my husband left on temporary duty assignment. He was gone for two weeks going to bars, going out dancing, drinking with friends, hitting the casinos... and I guess there was a little F-15 flying in there somewhere too... But that means I had Rugrat 1 and Rugrat 2 all by myself. It was sort of a crazy house around here.

But I'm back! And I'm back with some awesome news! Not about myself, of course. Please remember, I only try to be cool. But I do know people who are cool in real life!

Instead of the "normal" posts I've done thus far- outfit recreations, crafting ideas, organization ideas, etc- I'd like to make a post to brag on some extraordinary people I happen to know personally who are deserving of massive amounts of praise and adoration. Do they know I'm blogging about them? Nope! Will it creep them out? Maybe, though I hope they see it as complimentary instead of crazy-stalker-fan-girlish.

First and foremost, I would like to congratulate a very talented young writer on signing with the literary agent of her dreams! After years of hard work and perseverance, she has finally been rewarded for her amazing skill!

Who is she?

My very own flesh-and-blood cousin, Molly Lee!

 For a full account of her great accomplishment in her own words, as well as a fantastic giveaway she is running, you can check out her blog here.

Sorry Molly, I happen to adore this photo of you. You look like someone who'd kick my ass and make me thank you for the experience!

Everyone watch out for her- you won't be disappointed!!!


Next on my Awesome People List comes a guy I've known my entire life. He's gone from a small-town sweetheart to a badass musician!

Chase Ryan is a guitarist for the band The Virgin Wolves. Recently, he's released a new single, Walk Down, which I am LOVING! Check out the band's page on Facebook here and show them some love, his fan page here, then listen to his new song here.

Well, that's it on my brag-fest for the day! Again, mad props to you both!!!

As always, please feel free to comment. I've yet to receive a single one, and it's getting close to hurting my feelings!!!

'Til Later!
