Dana from Life Turned Upside Down awarded me this 'Rockin' Girl Blogger' badge!! I am so honored!! She writes great and funny stuff, so head over there and check it out! (It took me a while to figure out how to post the badge-- Thanks Good Woman!!) Thanks, Dana, for the cool nomination!

Writing this blog has turned into a fun outlet and I never expected to get so excited about hearing from you and your comments and riding the ego wave has done wonders for me! I have come to look forward to reading what you have to say and I also enjoy reading your stuff, too! I might not always leave a comment, but part of my daily routine is to read all the blogs in my 'Check 'em Out' list. I love hearing your own tales of your daily lives or your walks down memory lane. I get excited for you when good things happen and I feel sad when you share your woes. I laugh out loud and get all giddy when I find someone that feels the exact same way I do-- I'm not the only one!!

Although I have not met a single one of you in person, I feel I have made many new friends. It is sort of like having a Pen Pal in a modern kind of way. I like that I can write about something I am not sure of, and then I get plenty of encouraging comments. I like knowing that I may have taught you a thing or two. It does my heart good when you keep coming back! Thank you!!

I am nominating 5 Rockin' Girl Bloggers and hope you wear the badge with pride (as you should!).

Lady M from Braveheart Does The Maghreb -- an absolute delight to read and I never miss a post!

Lindystar from Danielle is a Hor -- guaranteed to make you laugh out loud!

Suffering Summer from A Shot In The Dark -- a kindred spirit and my kind of girl!

Drunk Mummy from.. Drunk Mummy -- a funny blog that will keep you up to date on what to drink!

and last but not least: Elsie Button from Flower Fairies and Fairy Cakes -- a fun account of a first time mom!

Post the 'Rockin' Girl Blogger' badge on your site-- here's how: click on the badge and save as a picture then click 'add a picture' on your post. That should do it!

I am honored, and right back at you - I never miss a post of yours ( know I'm having one of 'those' days, but it take a migraine to keep me away!).

I agree with all your choices, great blogs all. Isn't this entire blog world amazing? I love finding so many talented and informed people with so much to say and share. I had no idea what I was getting into when I started this in May.

congratulations to you!! well deserved.

Congrats and ahh gee thanks....I love reading your blogs and I too check every day even if I don't comment all the time...seems that somedays all I have the time for is the reading!
I am relatively new to this blog world and I must say I am loving it! Thanks again!

Elsie Button said...

yes congratuations to you! - i always look forward to your posts. and thank you so so much!

ps sorry for delay, been away for weekend

Lindystar said...

EEEEEEEEEEKKK!!! How cool for you!!! And AAAAAAAH you gave one to me AND a shout out.

Consider my day made. No for real! I just got into work and I was kind of tired and feeling like I didn't have much to write about. But now I'm all geeked and goofy smiley, and I feel inspired to post.

And we can pass this on?? OH how cool and nice is that?

You do deserve it btw. Your blog is always a nice place to come and it's always a suprise as to what I'll find. Sometimes funny, sometimes just a for real mom worrying about her kids that isn't afraid to share, sometimes a frustrated woman venting it out and other times we get JELLY !! You never know when you come here but one thing for sure is that it's a nice down to earth yet interesting place to come.

Thank you for my badge I'm SOOO going right now to put it up. :)
