What? You mean you want quality writing with good, interesting content and beautiful pictures and savvy enough to add fun little captions in the sidebar? Oh well, then- nevermind.
Well , apparently all I had to do to get an award was visit Christy everyday, agree with her in my comments, and read her archives! Geez, I could have saved a lot of time and humiliation had I known that! So thanks Christy! It brightened my day to get an award and
This award has inspired me to actually try to figure out this tech stuff that I hadn't been able to, UNTIL NOW (notice all the links- not so dumb after all, eh?)
In the true spirit of the award, I will now follow the directions and pass them on accordingly...
Although I am trying to follow the rules, and after much consideration, I am giving these out to people that I would pretty much want to hang with and have a drink with. Don't get me wrong, they have great blogs and that's what keeps me coming back, but the content is like something I would expect from some of my live and in-person friends.
1.)Jen at Cheaper than Therapy- first of all, I know she has recieved this award at least once, but I got to be honest- she's the one that gave me the tutorial on Blogger to figure out the linky thing. Sweet- one word that sadly will never fit me- is the perfect word to describe her. She is everywhere and comments all the time, has kind words, a warm smile, and pictures that look like postcards! She's a waaay better mom than I am, too.
2.)Jill at The Perlman Update, again, I am not the first to bestow this honor on her, but she is still much deserving! She and her gorgeous family are moving to India after having been in Israel for some time (for her husband's job). I am completely sheltered in middle America and I find it fascinating to learn about their cultural adventures and live vicareously through her. She is also a waaay better mom than I am.
3.)Momo Fali - she doesn't need the love from me, but she's gonna get it anyway! She is FUNNY- no two ways about it- I have found myself belly laughing at comments she has left at other blogs- funny just ooozes out her pores! She has a knack for telling a story- short and sweet and, did I mention, funny? Oh yeah, she is also a better mom than I am.
4.) Sarah at Tales of Wit and Charm. She's very cool, close to my age, but doesn't have a house full of kids and husband dragging down her coolness factor- like me. She tells it like it is and doesn't hold back. In a parallel universe, this is who I would have been- I mean, come on we both have sunflower tattoos for crap's sake! Although she's not a mom, she is STILL a waay better mom than me because she treats her pug, Daisy, probably better than I treat my children!
5.) Sue at Happy Meals & Happy Hour. Again, FUNNY! She's very cool too, but is weighed down by the kids and husband like me- so I really get her. She isn't afraid to bash
