fleur


i feel so honored that you all shared your favorite baby names with me. let's please do it again. when someone tells me what names they like, i'm able to see into their soul. so, not to make you uncomfortable or anything, but i can see into your soul.

if i was really oprah, you all would have won and that would have been a relief for me. everyone deserves a new dressssss! screams abby, fist-pumping erratically.

the real winner is randomly chosen comment #37, jenfra! also known as jen. i'm delighted she won. she and i were on the same floor freshman year and she was such a sweet friend to me, especially considering freshman year was without a doubt the most depressive year of my life. that's saying something because we all know how 2010 went down. thank you jen! here, have a dress! (you also have my utmost respect because i LOVE the name fleur. i'd never thought of it before!)

as a lame consolation prize for the rest of you- here, look into my soul: dolly and sal. (pretend you're surprised if i ever really use those.)

and go read the nameberry blog, which is the coolest place to discover names and read comments from fellow name dorks. you will love it.

and thanks shabby apple!

Notice the lack of comments on this post. We're all sobbing quietly that we didn't win:)

But, YAY for Jenfra! May her good luck continue:)

it took me a minute to figure out who is pictured in that photo.

i saw miss dolly at the jay leno show awhile back. i was sitting on the front row, and she winked and waved at us. niiiiiice.

you would have a lovely dolly. i like the names dixie and dottie (dot) as well. :)

The girl from Spanglish is Fleur!

i'd probably hate jenfra right now, if fluer wasn't such a good name.

what??!! a giveaway? i missed it...darn it. cripes. that's what i get for looking out the window all day at the freaking snow i'm too scared to drive in.

nobody suggested kainoa for a boy? probably because (as I am finding out) nobody knows how to pronounce it:( awwww...

Michele said...

oooo that nameberry blog is a fun site. I am really liking so many names. What fun! Now i just need some things to name...

Sarah said...

Leslie said...

dolly is a cute name...but i will probably greet her with "hello dolly, why hello dolly...it's so nice to see you..." actually looking forward to that. :) abs. i. must. see. you.
here's a look in my soul: jane ;)

Maybe I should have put my kids real names (Elliot, Astoria, and Rou), since those are obviously my "real" favorites since I used them. Not that it would have swayed the odds in my favor. :) Besides I don't look good in orange anyway (sour grapes)

But seriously, Fleur is a lovely lovely lovely little name. Good call Jen. :)

Pinterest doesn't have a feed? How am I supposed to follow you in reader?

kate said...

i just want you to know i'm not okay with how little you blog.

communikate. said...

but seriously. where are you?!

i've resorted to reading your past archives (kidding. sort of.)

i'm going to tell shabby apple you're not blogging enough.
