Exciting News | A Thrifty Mrs

Bonjour, how art thou? I have some exciting news – I’ve been shortlisted for a Cosmopolitan Blog Award 2012, eep! I didn’t ask for nominations this year, so I was baffled and more than a tad chuffed to find I’d been shortlisted, meaning some kind souls had nominated me. Thank you, thank you, thank you! You’ll never know how grateful I am just to be shortlisted.

I shan’t bore on about this (too much) but I will celebrate with a KP Choc Dip and a good episode of Gilmore Girls, the high life if you will?

cosmo blog award shortlist

My nomination is in the Lifestyle section along with some ruddy good blogs I read on a daily basis. If you’d like to vote for me to win all you have to do is nip over here and fill out the form (it’s easy – just click my blog name). If you do vote for me I will of course give you a kitten named Albert and a packet of After Eights…that’s a lie…woah politics gets nasty huh?


P.S. This bloggy political broadcast was brought to you by EXCITEMENT.

P.S. There will be no kitten. Or chocolate-y-minty goods.
