We're totally sitting at the cool table in the cafeteria...

You know the one...

The girls are who sit there are always laughing and flirting with the cutest boys. They have a confidence that the rest of the room lacks and their certain je ne sais quoi attracts fabulousity like a magnet. But most of all, they always look like they're having the best time.

When Laura and I first started this blog we had about four followers who read and occasionally commented on our ramblings. Two of whom were our mom and grandmother. Safe to say that we were eating lunch together in the handicapped stall in the bathroom. Almost a year later we've met some truly incredible people (this is the part where I get a little teary eyed) who have become more than just fellow bloggers and writers, but friends too.

Today we were nominated for The Kreativ Blogger Award three different times, which in our mind pretty much cemented our spot at the cool table. And because we're rebels, we're going to ignore the rules (duh, we're sitting at the cool table now...who needs rules!?) and instead share a little bit about fab gals that nominated us, so you can check them out.

Weronika Janczuk is going to run the world someday. She's an actual Young Adult, (How cool is it to have a true Young Adult friend? Really cool if you're boring quarterlifers like us.) she writes like a madwoman (seriously, this girl cranks out more words in a week than we hope for in a month!), she volunteers, she takes care of her family AND she finds time to contribute to the blogosphere. Rock on, Weronika. Rock on.

Jenna Alexander is one of our newest blog friends, and she's the only person we know with an R-rated blog. No, it's true! Her blog has a tag that says you have to be 18 or older to read it. Yowsa! And she has five sisters. FIVE! We love her already, which explains the copious amount of exclamation marks in this description.

Shelli Johannes-Wells is not only a talented writer represented by a kick ass agent, she's also a marketing genius. I know, I know, it's SO not fair. But if you're an aspiring writer and you're not following her blog you're doing yourself a serious disservice. She's crazy smart and I think that if we all listen to her we'll learn how to attract agents, get an editor and sell lots and lots of books. 

Well guys, thanks for reading our randomness on a regular basis and for saving us a spot at the cool table. It's really nice to not have to rest our packages of Twizzlers and cans of Diet Coke on the toilet seat.

Make sure you have all of your rules for the cool table down, like you must wear pink on Wednesdays...
Congrats!

Weronika said...

*hugs*

Icy Roses said...

Aha. I was totally going to nominate you, but it seems like other people have already gotten there. Anyway, you deserve it, and way to break the rules, you cool kids.

Sarah said...

Nominations? When? Where? Clearly, I'm still eating in the bathroom stall.
And congrats on your nominations! You deserve it.
PS: I don't think anyone heard the bit in your speech about the Twizzlers and Diet Coke. Darn Academy - they were totally playing you off!

Ryan said...

You should throw a bone over to the stall even smaller than the handicapped one, and tell all us little fishies how to get blogs as awesome as yours.

Congrats on being nominated for The Kreativ Blogger!

Never heard of it though. (I must be at the outcast table with my black hoodie pulled down over my eyes and the headphones blasting...) *looks wistfully at the cool table* ;)

Solvang Sherrie said...

Congratulations! You totally deserve the honor =)

Christina Lee said...

aww congrats- you deserve it! off to read those cool blogs- thanks!

Katie said...

I think we're being slowly kicked off the cool table as we have LOST followers lately :-(

Waaahhhh

Eh, as soon as I break out the ole honesty posts, we're sure to be popular again!

JennyMac said...

Congrats on your awards! And I will be sure to check out your recipients as well.

Hardygirl said...

Katie--I think by virtue of being followers of Lila, we ARE sitting at the cool table. At the very least, we're licking their crumbs off the floor and that's good enough for me!

Jenna Alexander said...

You guys are definitely at the cool kid table.

Thanks for the shout out regarding my blog and our interaction. You deserve the award I gave you.

Regarding my R-rated blog…. Hmmm I felt I needed to put that since I have two erotica stories coming out this fall. So far I think someone would have a hard time finding anything on there that was questionable. I am going to try and keep it clean even after my stories are out.

But... I do swear from time to time. And I’m trying to give away one or two of my sisters. Did I mention they are ALL older sisters? Yeah, little sister syndrome x 5!!

:-)

Red bows that's what cool girls wear, didn't anyone see the movie Heathers. And CONGRATS!!!

jessjordan said...

Yes, you're definitely at the cool table. And we, "little" bloggers, are just itching to join you. (Seriously. See me there, on the floor, scratching my ear and trying to give you puppy dog eyes?)

But you girls didn't just walk into the cafeteria and throw your books on the table like you owned the place. No, you earned your spot. Which is why the rest of us don't smile and ooh and ahh to your "faces" while secretly hating you behind your backs.

We all love you. You guys are awesome. You should teach etiquette classes for other kids at cool tables.

Congrats to the cool kids from the hippie in the parking lot!

Seriously, you guys deserve every accolade.

Rebecca Knight said...

I totally agree about Weronika! :D

The other two I'm checking out now. Thanks for the linky love, and congrats, all!

Lisa and Laura said...

A few things...

1. If you read and comment on our blog you are automatically at the cool table. And dude, our table includes hippies, outcasts, nerdfighters and crazy girls who wear tiaras. We're an equal opportunity cool table.

2. Our blog hiatus is not working. At all.

3. We love you guys. I know we're all mushy and gushy lately, but you guys seriously rock. We read (and discuss) every single comment on this here blog. So thanks again. Can't say it enough.

Lisa and Laura said...

P.S.
Maybe instead of wearing pink or red bows everyone at our table shall have to wear a tiara. Not sure how poor Ryan will feel about that...Maybe we could bend the rules and let him wear a top hat?

Danyelle said...

Congratulations!

Do we get to sit at the cool table by association? O:)

Shelli said...

YOu guys are too nice to sit at the cool table.

You're probably real Bitches in person huh? ;)
