My friend Jewel, over at Pink Ink, gave me a blog award:
This award is for bloggers that blog about real life. I'm not exactly sure what Marie Antoinette has to do with real-life blogging, but hey! I'll take it.
I'd like to thank all of my blog readers for their support and comments, even though I don't get nearly as many comments as some other bloggers I'm aware of. Still, I know you're out there reading, and it motivates me to keep writing. (And I know I'm behind at least two tags - I'll get to them soon!)
I'd also like to thank Kara, Anna, and Alyssa, for giving me lots of great topics to blog about. I'm not going to thank the van, because I don't want to blog about any more car trouble.
Now I come to the trickiest part of the award - nominating 7 others. It's not that I can't think of 7 other blogs to award - quite the opposite is true. I follow over 100 blogs, and many of them would certainly count as being award-worthy. But narrowing the field down to 7 is not an easy task.
OK - I've decided. The blogs listed below are always good for a fun, honest slice of life. I had a much longer list, and really had to work to trim it down to 7. I'm left with a good mix of family, new friends, long time friends (notice I didn't say old) and people I've met only through the blogosphere.
A Good Day - My long time friend Nicole talks about her life as an Army Wife and Disneyaholic.
Christensen Happenings - Another long time friend Elizabeth shares the fun and humorous happenings of her family.
Cranberry Corner - Jenna is a friend of a friend (of a friend?) and I always enjoy her insights and antics
Life with the Rich's - I came across Sheila and Keoni's blog while doing research for my book (I mention it here - item 2) and have really enjoyed following along. This is where I got the idea for the Activity Advent Calendar - thanks, guys!
Noreen and Allen Macbean - This is my sister and her husband. I do many fun things vicariously through them.
Wendy's Tiki Hut - I also came across Wendy doing research for my book. Wendy is an Air Force wife stationed in Hawaii, and her blog regularly makes me smile.
What is a Sundial In the Shade - Josi shares hilarious stories and excellent writing advice - two things I can never get enough of.
There - that wasn't so hard, after all. To the winners - thanks for making my life and Internet browsing just that much more enjoyable. I'm supposed to tell you to pass the award on to 7 others, but then I would feel like I'm being overbearing and bossy...
