Wicked Cool and Wonderful Awards!

posted in: Get to Know Me 17 comments

I have so many awesome gals to thank this week!  I got a bunch of awards and it feels so great to know that this little blog is reaching some and making you laugh, smile, cry, nod or learn something!  I have great readers and followers!  I want to send out lots of love to you all!

First, while I did not win – Jill at Scary Mommy linked back to my post (Six Ways to Scary), calling it creative, when she talked about her favorite Scary Mommy posts.  With all the great entries I was so excited just to get a mention!

Stina at Parents TLC awarded me with A Strong Cup of Coffee award after reading my Scary Mommy Post (click above).  Guess all that honesty really woke her up!  Thanks Stina!  Parents TLC has tons of tips and tricks for us!

Strong Cup of Coffee

Here are my picks for this Strong Cup of Joe – 3 Daddy Bloggers!  It’s great to read these guys!

1.  Blogger Dad:  Not only did David help me with my blog design brain freeze earlier this summer (he too uses the Thesis theme) and prove he is a great blogger friend, he is actually a great blogger.  The post he wrote a week or so ago brought tears to my eyes and inspired a post I am writing now.  It is called This One Goes Out To The Ones I Love.

2.  Steely Dad:  Okay Todd is a hoot.  I love reading his blog.  This sums it up.  Tagline:  “Rantings of a Stark-Raving-Mad-Stay-at-Home-Dad.  Then – in the header – “Because it takes balls to wear the skirt in the family”.  Need I say more?

3.  Writer Dad: Sean rocks.  Great writing.  Great Tips.  Great Dad.  Funny Blogger.  And again, kick ass Thesis theme.   

Thank you Candice at Bookish Penguin for giving me the Lovely Blog Award!  Candice is a book lover like me and she is a great new bloggy friend.  She also paid me a wonderful compliment with this award, saying that this is one of the only Mommy Blogs that she reads.  MWAH!

Happy Green Babiesalso awarded me the Lovely Blog Award.  Thank you so much Green Mama!  She loves breastfeeding, organic choices for baby and making baby gear.  Awesome!


The Lovely Blog Rules:  To accept the award – post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link.  Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you’ve newly discovered and remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

Katie at Think Pink and Meg at Ecomeg awarded me with the Best Blog Award!  Well my oh my thank you – quite high praise!  Katie has some great giveaways, a love of cats (she has 3) and a gorgeous baby girl!  Meg is great because she did not pop out of the womb as a crunchy, tree-hugging green lady.  She chronicles her eco journey since starting her family and she ROCKS!  

Best Blog Award

The Rules of the Best Blog Award: In order to accept the award, please post it on your blog with the name of the person who gave awarded it, including the link to the blog. Pass the award onto 15 other blogs that you have newly discovered and think are great.  Remember to contact the bloggers and let them know they have been chosen for this award.

Here are my 15 – you incredible ladies take home both the Lovely Blog Award and the Best Blog Award!  I want to get these awards out instead of just sitting on them so while I usually write something about each – passing on 15 awards in one post is a lot so check these blogs out for some laughs, some tips and some fabulous DIY projects.

5.    Young Wives’ Tale

    You know, I was/am following you! but when you commented on my post I thought “hm, I haven’t seen her on my blog roll for a while” and after checking some how I had your URL typed wrong so you weren’t getting through.
