Yoo-hoo! YOO-HOO!!! IT'S MY BLOGOVERSARY!
Did you hear? DID YOU HEAR??? It's my second blogoversary.
That's right, exactly two years ago today, I wrote my very first blog post. Wow, time sure does fly when you're havin' fun.
And now my friends... kick back in your seats, have a little nip of the nip, indulge in the fanciest of the fancy feast and let's have some fun 'cause today is a day to celebrate, for sure. 'Cause did I tell you? IT'S MY BLOGOVERSARY!
Wow, so much has happened durin' the past two years. Too much for me to mention everything here but there is one really, really big thing that I wanna celebrate 'cause it's the epitome of celebratory... celebratory... stuff to celebrate.
MOUSES! is a word. Could you believe it? I've invented a lot of words over the past two years but only one - so far - has made it into the Facebook and Blogger spell checks. Unfortunately, I am still waitin' to hear back from the peeps at Oxford and Websters about gettin' MOUSES! into their dictionaries but I haven't given up. I'll never give up. I'll get MOUSES! in there eventually even if I have to teleport over to their offices, myself! MOUSES!
So, in keepin' with the whole MOUSES! theme... we're gonna celebrate my blogoversary, MOUSES! style.
First of all, I enlisted the help of the peep to create a brand spankin' new award just for the occasion and you guessed it... the name of the award is... MOUSES!
Acceptin' the MOUSES! Award is super easy. Easy peasy, as they say. You just have to do four things and they're all easy peasy things to do.
Firstly, you need to thank the blogger who gave you the MOUSES! Award. Secondly, you need to post the award somewhere on your blog. Thirdly, when acceptin' the award, you need to use the word MOUSES! in a sentence. For this requirement, you may also choose to use one of the many variations of MOUSES! if you so desire. You know... like... mousin', mouses, moused-up, etc... Finally, you need to pass the MOUSES! Award on to two or more bloggers. You can pass it along to as many as you like but please try for at least two so that the award is spread around the blogosphere and doesn' fizzle out or anything. And you'll wanna pass the award on to bloggers whose work you read regularly and would therefore, sure as mouses recommend. See what I did there? Yup, you spotted it. I used a derivation of MOUSES! in a sentence. Lead by example, I say. Lead my example...
Allow me to now announce the first ever recipients of the new MOUSES! Award. PEEPERS... drum roll, please...

WE'RE HAVIN' A GIVEAWAY!
That's right, I got the peep to whip up some knitted mice along with a couple fabric biff bags and she's in the process of stuffing 'em with nip as we speak. Ol' Peepers used autumnal colours and they're really quite pretty and, of course, the nip is of the highest quality available. Totally organic and everything.
Now, who out there would like to win some mice stuffed with the nip? I know I would. What's that Peepers? Oh yeah... I'm not eligible to win 'cause I'm supposed to be the one giving them away. MOUSES!
Anywho... I know there are some cats out there who would love a selection of paw-made nip mice so let's get this giveaway started.
The contest is open to all cats (and dogs, bunnies, peeps, etc...) WORLDWIDE. You don't have to be a blogger to enter. ANYONE can enter. All you have to do is leave a comment on this blog post with your name, making sure I have a way to contact you if you're the winner.
You can earn extra entries, too. Yoo-hoo! YOO-HOO!!!
