Welcome, SITStas!


The day has finally arrived. I'm the featured blogger at The Secret is in the Sauce. SITS is a site dedicated to supporting bloggers by leaving lots and lots of comments. Click here to find out more.


My name is Misty, but everyone in the blogging world knows me as hotpants™. I've been married to The Hero, a firefighter, for almost 8 years. We have two children. Little Man is 4. Little Bit is 17 months. You can read more about us in the sidebar to your right.

I live in Memphis, Tennessee. I'm a full-time Business Manager and aspiring photographer. I love shiny gadgets, vampires and Britney Spears. If there's one thing I'm known for, it's my love of celebrities. Every week, I post my take on the latest celebrity news in The Talk of Tinseltown. I hate to brag, but it's all the rage here in blogland. Be sure to click the link to check it out for yourself.

Here are a few of my favorite posts. I'd love it if you'd check them out and leave a comment or two. Thanks for visiting Handbags & Handguns!

Congrats on your SITs day. You have a wonderful family and your blog is so cool. Love it especially your header.

I agree, Brit doesn't buy bras at Target. Does she own any? That's the question of the day,lol.

Happy SITS Day!! I'm so happy it's your feature day!! I'm finally leaving you a comment (i'm a big time stalker). I'm not big on celebrity gossip myself but I AM too.. It's weird, I have to read the tabloids in the checkout isle, it's like a guilty pleasure! haha.

And shhh... But I like Britney too! OMG... can't believe I admitted that!

Heather @ Gerber Days said...

Hey pretty Lady! Happy SITS day! I'm already a fan and follower of your blog! You deserve this day. Hope it's everything you thought it would be and more. :)

I love your post on "How to Mystic Tan Like A Pro."
I need to do more of the mystic tan, and less of the tanning bed. My skin will thank me!

I LOVE that friends episode!! Hilarious!

Allyson & Jere said...

Happy SITS day to you, so exciting!

Love the Brittany Spears post, 'cause seriously...the boobs, ewww!

Oh and the Sela Ward post as well. Moms, they're so great for a good embarrassment, aren't they?

Enjoy your day.

WOOOHOOO! So excited to see you featured today!!

I love your blog...you cause much laughter which causes my 2 year old to wonder why I'm laughing at my laptop.

Oh and to answer a previous question...YES, I would totally watch Tori Spelling's show. I'm a little late on that one, I know.

Melissa @ Cellulite Investigation said...

I blog about celebrities on occasion, too, but only when the topic involves my specialty: CELLULITE! Did you see the pics Britney released from her latest Candies ad? She released the unphotoshopped version next to the digitally enhanced ones. Really interesting to see the changes they made (like erasing all her muscles!). Anywho, happy SITS day!!

Lori Vann said...

Happy SITS day!

I love your "hand-writing" post - I just may have to try that! Love the gossip, much better written that ol' Perez and without all the annoying ads on the side - your hubby & kids are much nicer to look at!

Clearly Sela Ward's answer was either "No", or "I'm so hungry". Which was why she merely smiled.

And the Facebook pictures? Classic. I hope and pray no one has any they'd like to post from my misspent youth...!

That Sela Ward thing is HIGH-larious! That is so something that my mom would say ... which begs the question: we are moms. Are we someday going to slay our children with an embarrassing nugget like that? Someone stop me!

Jules said...

Happy SITS Day! Since your favorite is Celeb gossip- I still love the fact Lindsey is suing over the Etrade commercial with the babies! Those commercials are my favorite! My kids and I YouTube them for a laugh and my 4 year old mimics the guy who howls like a wolf!
Peace,
-Jules
