Coco Chanel Said...

A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.

Thanks to my new blog amie Coterie
- she thinks I'm fabulous and has awarded La Mom with:

And I'm nominating the following French themed blogs for being fabulous too. Visit them for great French decorating/fashion/cooking/lifestyle tips or wine tasting info.

La Belette Rouge
Rendez Vous With Style
French Essence
Paris Atelier
Ô Chateau Stuff Parisians Like
My Inner French Girl
Hidden In France
Papilles & Pupilles
(authentic French recipes in French)
Just Another American In Paris
The Antiques Diva(not a 100% Frenchy themed blog, but she lived in Paris and knows her Parisian antiques so that's good enough)

This fabuleuse award comes with a few rules:

1. Put the logo on your blog or post.
2. Nominate at least 10 blogs which you think are fabulous.
3. Be sure to link to your nominees within your post.
4. Let them know that they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
5. Share the love and link to this post and to the person from whom you received your award

As Winston Churchill said, “Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.”

So thanks to The Rambling Diva for awarding the La Mom blog The Lemonade Award for blogs that show great attitude/gratitude!

Here are some other great attitude/gratitude blogs:
Under The Influence - I love Kim's take no prisoners writing style and I've learned alot about the world of bare skin...oiled and ready...to be...massaged.
A Little Gratitude
Do Everything Blog
Mommy In Pink
- There is something about Kristi's blog that I find very touching. Perhaps it's her devotion to her baby and the way she expresses herself.
Cherry Soup
Place of Comfort
And finally, two très sassy blogs by two very scandalous women with whom I'd love to hang with for an evening of champagning & dancing at the best clubs in Paris:
The Scandalous Housewife
Suburbia Steph

Don't forget to:
1. Thank the person who gave you this award by linking their blog to this post.
2. Put the logo on your blog.
3. Nominate 10 blogs which show great attitude/gratitude.
4. Link your nominees to your post.
5. Comment them to tell them about the award they've won.

Honesty is the best policy right? Kim @ Under The Influence thinks so and has awarded La Mom with the Honest Scrap award. Merci!

For this award, I must list ten things about myself and then pass on the award to seven other bloggers. So here goes:

1. I'm not as bitchy as I can sound on my blog. Sometimes the keyboard has a life of its own.
2. I was pulled over by the police for speeding and I played stupid American. I pretended that I didn't speak French, had no idea what I did wrong, and just kept smiling at the gendarmes. It worked and I got off.
3. I would love to speak Italian, Spanish, and German.
4. I have a mad crush on Dr. Hot at the American Hospital in Paris. Have you noticed?
5. I hate to cook.
6. I love to clean, but I pay someone to do it for me anyway.
7. When visiting the US I'm always looking over my shoulder because I'm so freaked out I'll be a crime victim one day. My little Paris 75016 bubble feels so safe.
8. I love Daddy Sarkozy and think he'll go down as a great President of France.
9. I love following European Soccer and have a mad crush on Christophe Dugary and Bixente Lizarazu from France. David Beckham and his golden balls just don't do it for me.
10. I love Ladurée's pain au chocolat with almonds and pistachio.

Pass it on:
Sometimes Lucid Love Julia's funny stories and style.
Not Your Typical Mommy
There Must Be More To Life Than Dishes and Laundry
Feeding Kids Allergic To Food

Thanks for all of these awards. La Mom should be sent to the naughty corner for taking so long to acknowledge these and pass on the love. Another grand merci goes to Mommy In Pink for an award she gave me back in November.

Kelli said...

Merci La Mom!!! I appreciate this award and wish you a fabulous day in the city of light!

Under the Influence said...

Thanks, La Mom. I'll check out some of those French blogs - as long as they are writing in English. My French is pretty pathetic.

La Belette Rouge said...

First let me say congratulations on all these well deserved awards. And, Merci!!! Thank you for this lovely award. So lovely to be honoured like this and to have the opportunities to discover new blogs I have yet to discover. Thanks again!

Scandalous Housewife said...

Merci Blah-Blah, La Mama!
I didn't know you could give out awards on blogs, but those who read my blog know that I love to receive.

Olivier said...

Merci beacoup. I appreciate this kind attention!

All the best,
Olivier - from 'Stuff Parisians Like'

Evolving Mommy Catherine said...

Wow, congrats on all of your awards. And I don't think you sound bitchy...just honest and honesty is good right!?!

MY two favotire words CLASSY and FABULOUS

laurie said...

Ha. A link to this post came to me through my Lizarazu google alert.

I'm one of the writers of the blog on the France NT over at World Cup Blog, and I understand your obsession, at least with Lizarazu. (Dugarry not so much. Zidane, though? Absolutely. My husband and kids find all of this humorous.) I do post Liza photos and videos whenever they come my way, so be sure to stop by!


Paris Atelier said...

Thanks La Mom! I feel so honored to be in the presence of such great blogs! Merci! I just have to tell you that I love every word you post! Thaks again! I can't wait to steal a Baby free moment to post it on my blog!
Best wishes!

Mommy In Pink said...

congrats on all your awards, and thank you for passing one on to me!

Paula Mathias Fryer said...
