I am embarrassed by this post. And, if any of the people who awarded these to me want to take them back, I'll understand. I deserve it. I started this post back in . . . april. I deserve absolutely NONE of this love. FORGIVE ME!
Beth, our resident farm diva, from Around the Funny Farm gave me this fantabulous award!
I would like to pass this along to Karen at A Day in the Life, the Canadian mom of two super cuties. Her words drip with honesty. And, just so you know, my love for her does not mean we are having an affair . . . so Ian need not worry.
Stella, Mountain Momma. I don't think she has any idea how often I read her. I read her like I read a novel. I'm completely drawn in and focused on each and every word. I love hearing about her beautiful children. She is an inspiring, honest, caring, and REAL mom.
Krissy, Firecracker Mom. Ok. She makes me laugh. Those of you who read her know this to be true. She is raw. She is honest. BUT, would you believe it isn't just her S EX talk that keeps me interested, it is the fact that she is so up front and honest with who she is--her struggles, her beliefs, her health, her family, her job. She doesn't try to be anyone else. She's just Krissy. The "new age Dr. Ruth."
Jules a new (she was new, but since I wrote this FOREVER ago, she's an old friend now) bloggy friend from Just Because passed along the New Blogger with Bling Award! What a great idea! This is for all those newbies "who make you smile, sing, laugh or cry, or those that just need someone to tell them, once in a while, that they are special."
Please swipe this award and help a newer blogger start their bling collection.
I received this award from CC from If Only I had Super Powers--is a brilliant speech pathologist and mom of two children. She writes about every day life, her kiddies (duh), and awesome teaching strategies. Hop on over there and visit her--you won't be sorry!!!
I pass this on to Holly at Anglophile Football Fanatic. Her observations kill me! She has a rather witty way about her (when you're smart, wit apparently just happens ). And, I'm hoping to get an invite to her wedding to Burgh. I've already picked out your gift. By the way, she's giving stuff away, so go and visit already!
Pregnantly Plump because I am just addicted to Elvis. Addicted. And, of course because as a mother of a baby boy, I can relate to just about everything she writes.
Tara at If Mom Says OK. Her posts are always thought provoking, riveting, and/or touching. She's in my "not to miss" list.

Kami from Kami Khlopchyk gave me this awesome award. This busy Polish beauty is a mom to two uber cuties and an absolute MUST READ :
I pass this on to . . . well, you.
* The ones who hang out at Twitter (where I drop in occasionally, the commitment phobe I am, after having to scroll back six pages to catch up).
*Those of you who come by within minutes of my posting to leave me a comment. I love the comment, but the fact that you come at all, that is just awesome.
*Those of you who e-mail me, reaching out and trying to make a real connection.
*Those of you who respond to my e-mails (without worrying that I'm a freaky stalker--I swear I'm not . . . for the most part).
*Those of you who make me smile, make my eyes leak, make me go "hmmm," make me choke on my Swedish Fish with laughter.
Yeah, to all of you. You know who you are. Thanks!
Oh, and feel free to pass these awards along or just keep 'em and yank 'em out whenever you're feeling blue.
Now that the housekeeping is done . . . let me just update you on a few other things.
- I have a contract/freelance writing job. It has been great so far, as long as I can contain the OCD/perfectionist beast, I should be OK.
- J is teething. We had just one crooked tooth, now it appears we have won the tooth lottery. It has been a joy in the house. Just an utter joy.
- We bought J this (yeah, I know his birthday is coming up, but I can't help myself):
- But he only wants to play with these (I could have saved myself $50):
- J finally got to do this:
NOTE: Not responsible for errors. It is 2 a.m. and I desperately need to push PUBLISH and go to bed.
