I WON AN AWARD, YA’LL!!!! In the words of Chonda Pierce, “How stinkin’ funny is that?!?!”
My dear friend Rachel was kind enough (and crazy enough!) to send me this distinguished award! I was so excited that I must’ve left about 10 thank you’s on her blog. Whell! I was being gracious!! You guys be sure to check out her blog. She is the best caterer and cook this side of Tennessee. She’ll even give Paula Dean a run for her money! Maybe you can coax her in to sending you that “Sunday Morning Coffee Cake” recipe (more on that later!).
There are specific instructions that must be followed now in order to maintain such status in blog world though, so here they are:
1. Put the logo on your blog.
2. Add a link to the person who awarded you.
3. Nominate at least seven other blogs.
4. Add links to those blogs on your blog.
5. Leave a message for your nominee on their blog.
Here are my picks for this most prestigious award:
You guys have just got to meet my newest blogging friend, Audrey. She loves to blog and post pics of her three favorite people in the world: hubby, Aidan, and Evan. I don’t think there is ever a dull moment in their house! They love to travel and visit places in their hometown of DC. She and I even cook our roasts the same way!!
My Louisiana friend, Candy, actually discovered ME! She and I attended the same college here in Monroe and we’re still ticked off about the university’s name change (more about that on another day). I think she is one of the best Moma’s in the world because she is always doing something with her kids…outside…in the hot summer sun! What a mom!
Jess was my first true fan. She’s been following me for a while now. I hate when her computer is on the blink because I miss reading her blog. Her kids are beautiful, but beware! She carries scissors in her hands! I love her own hair by the way! Why do stylists always have the best hair?
My next friend, Melanie, has just decided to go private, so I don’t think you will be able to visit her blog. You should try sending her an email if you can because it truly is one of my favorites! Her story about how her two little girls came to be will make you cry…and smile. Melanie and I are are two fru-fru sisters in a big pile of fru-fru!!
My home-chick, Amie. Amie has been a friend of our family for a while. She and I became friends when she worked at our church’s daycare where Alise went when I went back to work after maternity leave. Alise calls her, “My Amie.” Check out her story about the creepy bed adventure! You will roll on the floor and pee your pants!
Next is mine and Alise’s very own personal jewelry maker! My BFF, Leigh. Go visit her and tell her that she needs to add her bead and jewelry making art to Etsy! She won’t listen to me!!
And last but not least is my cousin and sweet sister, Mirya. Her hubby, Doug, and my man, Wayne, are first cousins. Doug and Mirya, along with Katie Bug, live in Alabama. Wayne and I got married two months before they did and our girls are two months apart! Doug and Wayne talk everyday on the phone, but Mirya and I keep up with each other on our blogs! I love her to death! BTW, we’re all going to the beach together in September. (Girl, you’ve been tagged AND awarded! You best hurry and get that computer fixed soon!!)
Thanks to ALL my bloggy friends!! I *heart* and *stalk* you all the time!
