Love the kids! So cute! This is quickly becoming my favorite thing on here. Love the reader photos!

Ms. GRiP said...

Where's the "I told ya so post' for Katy & Russell. I love this damn blog :)

Aimée said...

Ahh i'm #3 ^_^

And i know we all saw it coming a mile off, but i'm still a bit gutted about Katy and Russell. Oddly i was debating last week whether to send in that photo of me or my photo with Katy, it would've been so relevant.

Chrissy Buns said...

#7, what coast are you on? Looks very Pacific Northwestish! My goodness, what a bunch of purty readers we have!!!

RenoBlondee said...

Love these pics!

Cindy said...

Aimee, your pic looks like an Aimee -- that doesn't happen too often. And I agree about Katy and Russell, I was pulling for them, they were so cute together. Now I'm sad :(

Lots of love in the reader's photos today, I like it!

DixieTheNoble82 said...

I'm my favorite/lucky number - #6!

JayElle said...

Yes!!!! I'm #1... go me. HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!

Jessi said...

Number 4 here. Happy New Year to all!!! Can't wait for the reveals!

HOOKER said...

big shot outs to RENOBLONDEE, BLUEBONNET MOM, and other cdaners who prayed for me, had kind words back in the summer and/or chose not to judge.

i am safe and well and keeping positive about 2012.

i'm also in the pics today.;) have a happy, healthy and prosperous new year!

signed, HOOKER cathouse worker no longer!

RenoBlondee said...

@HOOKER
I am so glad you are doing well!
Happy New Year to you too and hope to hear from you on here every now and then!
Continue to be well!

Meg said...

I'm Team Russell - she never really seemed to get the whole idea of marriage. She seemed like she just wanted to go out and party all the time. Sure he has a womanizing past, but that was also (at least partially) due to his addictions. If he's clean & sober, then he may have been faithful. People are so quick to jump on him - but she's definitely not a goody-goody either.

JasonBlueEyes said...

Hello Rock stars.

JayElle - you going to stop the heart of every male reader here.

Aimée said...

@Cindy i've never been told i look like an Aimee before, it sounds like a good thing though lol :D I always have to spell my name out to people, i end up telling them, "It's the awkward spelling..." My aunt still spells my name wrong on birthday/Christmas cards.

I'm Team nobody, i've been a Russell fan for around 8 years, but after meeting Katy a couple of months ago, i think she's lovely. I'm still kind of hoping they work things out, but i doubt it.

Rita said...

Hey beautiful reader.

@DixieTheNoble - you don't look like no damn door mat to me! You're a cutie pie!

DixieTheNoble82 said...

@Rita <3

I've been waiting to see if I see your name pop-up in reader photos, but shh - that's a secret.

Rita said...

I'm in the first batch today. What's the shhh for?

DixieTheNoble82 said...

I tend to agree with you @Meg. I like both Russell & Katy but I can just imagine this is how things went down:

They had a fight and did some yelling. Katy cried divorce one too many times. Russell comes home & files. No heads-up needed for Katy in his mind, she asked for it. Again.

I tend to have a vivid imagination / and or project onto others.

DixieTheNoble82 said...

One more thing - @Jason, don't be too quick to say #1 is stopping only the MALE readers hearts. :)

DixieTheNoble82 said...

Are you? I didn't see yet, then! Must go look!

The 'shh' was my attempt at veiled humor. Not very good at any type of humor. :D

Jasmine said...

Yay! I'm the blonde in #15 being slobbered all over :)

This is my aunt who hasnt seen me since I was 4. She said before the reunion that kissing me was on her bucket list. This pic was taken literally 5 seconds into seeing her again- she just leapt at me! haha

It's an honor to be among such gorgeous readers today ~

DixieTheNoble82 said...

@Jasmine - your photo oozes happiness. I love it.

christine8car said...

wow! what fun to see the reader photos, all you beautiful reveals! so glad I got off work at noon today and stopped by my fav. blog. We had a quick snowstorm blow through and now it's clearing to blue skies again. That's Alberta!
@jasmine it's wonderful to know the back story in that photo, I could see you were glowing! ~Happy New Year everyone!~

libby said...

Dixie---I'm a HUGE Ben Folds fan!!! I would have totally hit on him. Why not have a few months as wife number......11? He's HOT!

chopchop said...

Dixie I love your photo!!!!! I absolutely love Ben Folds ... I'm super jealous!!!

DixieTheNoble82 said...

@Libby - lmao. Don't think the thought didn't go thru my head. I could live with being a lyric in one of his songs.

He was INSANELY cool. This photo was taken in 2009 at the House Of Blues in San Diego after his show. There was about 15 of us but he spoke to every single person in the room. And I mean had conversation.

I tried to play it cool when I talked to hi but I think I ended up telling him I thought the released version of 'Way To Normal' sucked & he should of released the b-side (or whatever he called it) version. Shockingly he took it well and said he felt the exact same way but sometimes you get pressured to do that which will make more money.

I also told him he should play 'Wandering' in concert. He said he had forgotten about that song but that it was "a good one". My sister actually called me from a Ben concert a few months later, practically in tears - all I can hear is him pounding out Wandering on the piano in the background and her screaming "My sister told him to play this!" over and over.

I mean that entire trip was a blast. I entered a very short version of it into his fan contest on his FB page. The one titled "I'm Getting This Tattooed On Me". There are at least 4 no-joke, write home to dad, stories about that trip.

Geezus this is long. Sorry.

DixieTheNoble82 said...

Also - I totally stalked the readers photos of previous years (since this is the first end of year for me, reading this blog) and you guys have had some seriously great photos.

@Libby - yours being one of the most memorable and favorite of mine. :0]

DixieTheNoble82 said...

OOPS! I should of @ you too, chopchop. I didn't see you there!

Seriously guys - he is a gem. I have about 15 more pictures with/of him from after the show.

libby said...

OMG, Dixie---"Wandering" is one of my top 5 favorites, for sure! It epitomizes what i really love about Ben---He writes always from a completely male perspective, KWIM? That is, he'd rather have a great, meaningful TRUTHFUL song than have some wussed-out hit. He really doesn't pull any punches with his feelings. He'd probably have much more money if he wrote songs that little girls could relate to, but he NEVER does. His honesty rips my heart open, as a straight woman who has dated many an all-male man.

In fact, "Wandering" describes PERFECTLY a few of my ex-boyfriends (usually those in their late 20's), "Ready to but never could."

I'm rambling, sorry.

Chrissy Buns said...

@Dixie, i ADORE your tat! And Jasmine, your pic gave me warm happy fuzzies! Aren't we all just a buncha happy Cdaners?!?

DixieTheNoble82 said...

@Libby - you really summed up a lot of why I mentioned 'Wandering' to him. He is definitely a lyrical genius in my opinion.

Girl, I could ramble on for hours about Ben. By far my favorite artist.

DixieTheNoble82 said...

@Chrissy Buns - Thanks! I've had a lot more artwork done since this photo.

libby said...

Btw, Dixie, this pic is so old. My hair now is shoulder-length and my natural color (dark blond). It won't grow any longer, and I'm thinking of cutting it off again, but I'm 40 now and don't wanna look like a soccer mom.
(No offense to any gorgeous soccer-mom CDAN readers out there!)

DixieTheNoble82 said...

^I think it's fabulously real & beautiful. I love to see all types of people in all types of poses and situations - armpit sniffing not to be discluded (totally a word, spell check.)!

DixieTheNoble82 said...

Man, anyone else wish we had a chat room at times? LoL.

Aimée said...

@DixieTheNoble82 I always wished CDAN would have a forum (Again), a chat room would also be brilliant :D

If anyone cares though, i'm on Twitter: voose_lagina ;D

DixieTheNoble82 said...

I followed you Aimee. :0] I'm WrixieDecked82

Between this blog and Twitter - I rarely do much else on winter break.

Hayley said...

Off topic, but has anyone heard from RocketQueen lately? I feel like I haven't read anything from her lately.

Hogfan said...

Omgosh, I startled myself when I scanned down. Hahaha I knew I submitted a pic, but still felt weird actually seeing it. Isn't my little guy handsome?!? :)

Sincerely,
CDAN Fan pic #2

DixieTheNoble82 said...

@Hogfan - Same here! Your little guy is very handsome, such a lovely photo.

It's been said before and I'm starting to agree - this is becoming one of my favorite parts of CDAN.

Hogfan said...

@Dixie -- lol. Your "little guy" is not too shabby himself. :) I bet that was a fantastic night for you!

DixieTheNoble82 said...

@Hogfan - You've taught me that Saranac beer does not taste as good when coming out thru the nostrils.

Maja. With a J. said...

I love all the photos, but especially #15...because I totally KNOW her! *L*

Jasmine said...

LOL Maj- you're so silly and I love you:>

Did you submit a pic this year?

MizCaramel said...

@Hogfan you are channeling (and I mean this in a really nice way) Angie Harmon! Gorgeous!

I love all the reader photos, you are the best looking most fun group of peeps ever! Sign me up for the forum or chat room :)

sent mine in last year or the year before but maybe next year I'll send another one.

EmEyeKay said...

I've been wondering about RocketQueen as well - did she have her baby? Is that why she's been gone? I hope she's okay.

Love all your pix, everybody!

Sylvia said...

Love the readers...All good looking :D

reppiks said...

Yay I'm #10 from sunny Daytona Beach! Enjoying the 80 degree weather today. Happy New Year blog readers!! :)

Chrissy Buns said...

I'm glad someone else has been thinking about RocketQueen...I hope she is ok!

JasonBlueEyes said...

I've been wondering about RQ as well over the past couple of days. Maybe she'll pop in for reveals day.

Happy new Year to everyone here. Here are some safety tips: Try not to drink as much as a Lohan, tell your boss off and get your ass fired like Charlie Sheen, cheat on your spouse with some bar skank like Ashton Kutcher, don't cheat on your wife with your ugly housekeeper like Arnold did while you're at it, don't get your naked pics you carry on your cell phone stolen and posted on the internet, don't tweet pictures of your junk to anybody either, don't resurrect and update old stupid television shows from the 1970's and most importantly don't marry anybody and divorce them 72 days later because then everybody on earth will hate your ass. Also if you're a single young woman in the U.K stay far away from Russell Brand's house. By the stroke of midnight tonight that place will resemble the orgy scene from "Eyes Wide Shut."

See ya in 2012.

Hogfan said...

@MizCaramel -- thank you so much! :) I've never heard that before, but I love Angie Harmon. I'd love a forum or chat room....this is my favorite site.

@JasonBlueEyes -- Love it!!! Made me laugh :)

@reppiks -- 80 degrees?!? Holy cow

Comma Chaser said...

Happy New Year all. Be safe, and if you plan to drink on the town, wherever you are, take a cab or designate a driver among your group!

Seachica said...

@Jason - Love your post!

I've become spoiled by Enty posting 7 days a week...feels odd to have a dark day, even though we used to only get posts M-F. I'm waiting in delicious antipation of a day of reveals. I went out and bought chips and dip for tomorrow, and I plan to spend the day reading, posting, noshing and cooking. Yay! Happy new year's eve everyone!

Chrissy Buns said...

Have a happy, fun, safe night tonight all! I plan to watch the ball drop from the safety of my living room stone cold sober with my kids. I know, I'm a total party animal ;)

I am DELIRIOUS with excitement for reveal day tomorrow! See ya on the flip side!

GladysKravitz said...

Hi Jasmine! You and all the readers look amazing.

RQ is alive and well. Just not commenting a lot right now. Kinda like me. THis blog is just so great that it goes on whether we're here or not--and, for instance, even though I read it every day faithfully, my life and computer situation doesn't lend itself to commenting as regularly as I did in the past. Same with RQ right now.

Rita said...

@GladysKravitz - great to hear from you and RQ! Hope the pregnancy is going well.

To all CDANers, HAPPY NEW YEAR! 2 more hours before the reveals. I've got a feeling the site will explode wit comments today!

Rita said...

@Seachica - don't forget your bloody Marys to go with those chips!

Jan. 1st is National Bloody Mary Day. THE drink to cure your NYE hangovers!

Anotheramy said...

Happy Reveal day everyone!

EmEyeKay said...

Yes, happy reveals! I'm so excited! And happy new year, too. Since I'm on vacation I didn't have much time yesterday to be online, I looked quickly and found my pic in a previous post. Going to have to fight another family menber for internet access this morning.

reppiks said...

@hogfan yes 80! It was 82degrees @ Christmas didn't feel like Christmas, but that's Florida for you! At least today it's in the 70's (79 to be exact, lol!) I'm excited for this week because the highs here will be in the 60's with lows in the 30's. Typical Florida weather sweating one week and freezing the next!

x.sophie.x said...

I'm in the UK, and its 4pm here.... Enty, the suspense is immense! Happy reveal day everyone!

Vicki Cupper said...

I can't wait!!!! Hurry it up Enty!!

Rita said...

This year might be Epic. Everyone is all ready and gearing up for the reveals! Happy New Year all!

BTW, for Beyoncé's baby, he/she should be born on the 7th. 01.07.2012=4.

Kim's World said...

Happy New Year

Anotheramy said...

I was always under the impression that Beyonce was pregnant just supplementing her bump so it would look good in dresses. Lately Im thinking shes not pregnant at all. Oh and that store video? Everything in the picture is wider.

strawberrygirl said...

I'm super excited for the reveals. I anticipate some good ones!

Seachica said...

I don't like bloody Mary's -- yes, it's sick, but I think harming a beautiful tomato by processing it is mean. I don't like tomato sauce either. bUT, I will break out some baileys. Does that get me back into the cool posters club? :-)

Rita said...

^Seachica uncool? Never! You do know you can juice your tomato though, don't you?

Cheers to all then. Come on Enty, I can't wait to see the first one.

RenoBlondee said...

5 minutes late! EEEEK! You're scaring me Enty!

EmEyeKay said...

So I snaked the internet modem thingie away from my stepdad (we're on holiday on the Oregon coast) and I'm waiting, impatiently, for reveals! Morning Rita!

@Seachica - Baileys? So early? ;)

Rita said...

^he said 9:15 PST... Unless i'm wrong..?

Rita said...

@EmEyeKay - morning!

BAiley's is quite good with strong black coffee! But the Bloody Mary is for the over-indulgence. And it is Nat'l BM day.

RenoBlondee said...

@Rita
Thank you! I thought it was 12 on the dot and something was wrong. Phew!!! :)
Happy New Year!

Vicki Cupper said...

@Rita, *whisper whisper* BM *whisper whisper* bowel movement *whisper whisper* barf

Rita said...

@RenoBlondee
Happy NY to you too! And hope it'll be a great year!
Funny, I had the same reaction last year, thought something was wrong, and Enty was late:)

RenoBlondee said...

12 Eastern time I meant of course!

Rita said...

@Vicki WTF! starting the NY on the throne??

RenoBlondee said...

@Vicki
i'm sorry girl, got some alka seltzer?

Vicki Cupper said...

Rita, LOL! You said today is National BM Day. Whenever i hear "BM" I think bowel movement, because that's what my mother used to call it.

Ick.

RenoBlondee said...

^ Oh! LMAO

Rita said...

@Vicki - the best is gatorade!! If you have any, will stop the "marathon"

Rita said...

@Vicki - is up and kicking!!! LOL!

Vicki Cupper said...

LMAO!!!
