It’s awards time again! Over the last month I am honored to have been given several awards. As always, my procrastination in passing these on is in no way a reflection of my appreciation. Thank you to all, so, so, much!
The Lemonade Stand Award is from Naomi at Organic Motherhood with Cool Whip, and Shell at Things I Can’t Say.
I love Naomi because of her thoughtful (yet realistic) posts on raising well adjusted and healthy children. Plus, she leaves awesome, extremely positive, thoughtful comments. I have also learned lots of interesting things from her (for example, the fact that some women eat their placentas).
Shell is like my long lost sister who understands the trials and tribulations in making other mummy friends. I also like that she started an anonymous blog so she doesn’t have to worry about family/friends/neighbors/etc reading what she writes (smart). And Shell, I am so intrigued by the shot of the back of your head (profile pic). I heart your hair.
I am passing this award on to Charlene at The Balance Beam. Charlene is realistic – she knows life isn’t perfect. But she always finds a way to look for a more positive balance (hence, the name of her blog). I’m striving to follow Charlene’s example.
I got The Adorable Blog Award from Monique at A Day in the Life of a Surfer-wife. Monique is not only hilarious but is also training for a triathlon. She recently started an inspirational new blog documenting her exercise schedule (grueling, but extremely encouraging for those who are out of shape – such as myself) (http://triathletewife.blogspot.com/).
I am passing this award on to Melissa at My Life and How It’s Going. I have a minor obsession with Melissa’s cute hair cut and have tried to replicate it (not sure it’s working for me, though). I love Melissa because she posts lots of lovely pictures and funny stories on her blog.
Deb at Menopausal New Mom was generous enough to bestow me with the Gorgeous Blogger Award. I love anyone who thinks I am gorgeous (and pretends not to notice the giant pimple beside my nose. The one I just attempted to squeeze). I find it comforting to visit Deb’s blog. She is honest and humorous. Her comments always put me in a good mood.
I am passing this award on to Kiran at Masala Chica. Because not only is she gorgeous, but her blog is too! Kiran has a lovely writing style and leaves you wanting more. I may have a slight girl crush on her.
The Lovely Blog Award is from Mom of the Perpetually Grounded. Mom of the Perpetually Grounded blogs about raising teenage girls. Which scares me (but intrigues me – I will have one in about fourteen years, after all!). Thank you for the preview of my future life (and, can I say, arggghhh!).
I am passing this award on to Calgary Daddy. Calgary Daddy blogs about the impending arrival of his first baby (actually, given the fact that his wife was being induced last week, the baby has probably already arrived. Congrats!). Calgary Daddy has lots of great stories and leaves really nice, thoughtful comments.
Whew! Happy Sunday, and time for bed.
