An Early Birthday Present

I am supposed to be packing right now, but I had to type a quick post that will hopefully convey my excitement and gratitude over receiving this cute, pink award from Izzy:
Do I deserve it? Well, I’m not sure how ‘rockin’ I am anymore, and I feel a bit more matronly than ‘girl’, but I do blog, so I humbly accept. I’ve really enjoyed this blogging thing since starting in October, and the fact that anyone chooses to read and comment on what I’ve written is truly an amazing feeling.

I am now supposed to ‘tag’ five other ‘Rockin‘ Girl Bloggers‘; I’ve seen the award around so many places, I’m not sure who is left, so I’ll try to pick a few that I think are deserving:

1. First I nominate The Cleaner Plate Club, a blog described as “one mother’s search for real food”. This issue is near and dear to my heart right now, and I soak up her suggestions, challenges, recipes. . .she is truly on a mission, and I love that.

2. Next, I’m passing this on to Nuttnbunny, a crafter from the other side of the U.S. Those who know me well will laugh, because I’m about as crafty as my cats. There are times I have no idea what she is talking about, like when she talks about ‘casting on’ or ‘spinning’ or posts a photo of yarn. But, I still feel like she is a kindred spirit, and I adore her projects, her stories about her son and the cool sculpture in her backyard.

3. Whirlwind is one of my fellow New England Mamas, but I’ve been reading her from about the time I started my blog last year. She always has great stories about her three girls, and her photos are gorgeous too.

And, a couple homeschooling folks:

4. I’m certain Chris has received numerous awards for her ‘main‘ blog, but I’d like to give props to this one. With seven, yes 7, children, she is a treasure chest of information; information that I soak up like a sponge. Mainly, I want to come sit in her lovely house and watch her get through a typical day, especially when it comes to homeschooling such a large group.

5. I also really enjoy reading Mom is Teaching because she exposes me to so many homeschooling issues and topics; she is relatively new to me, but I look forward to reading new posts as soon as they come up.

OK, NOW I need to go pack before my husband leaves without me!

Happy Weekend!


  1. Whirlwind says

    Aww… Thank you.

    Have a great trip!

  2. nuttnbunny says

    Right back at ya, Sister Sledge.

    btw – most times even I don’t know what I’m talking about 🙂


  3. Why thank you!

  4. I love posts like this. I discover all kinds of blogs that I love to read when I find an awards post. It’s like a referral of the best kind.

  5. I can’t wait to hear all about the big birthday weekend.

    I still look at this weekend on my calendar every year and think, LOON POND LUAU.

  6. Oh, The Joys says

    Oh, you are MOST rockin’!

  7. Hey, thanks! Being on DIAL UP (grrr…) means it sometimes takes me a while to see these things, but I oh-so-appreciate that you think I’m anything resembling rockin’!

    We have near-ish B’days – I turned 37 on the 18th. And this year? My hubby and I both forgot our anniversary, too, until that day. It is love when that happens, and you can laugh about it!
