My First Award!!!


I am so thrilled! I got my first blog award. And the funny thing is that I've been such a slacker for the past week or so. But I am deeply honored by Trudy at Third Time's A Charm who gave me this lovely award.

True confession time: When I started this blog in February, I was looking for a way to improve my writing skills. I was also hoping for instant "success" with a following of a few thousand people. I was hoping for cash bonuses.

Well, that hasn't happened so far. But what HAS happened was completely unexpected: I have made some awesome blogging friends! I have discovered that there are many other people out there who share my struggles and triumphs.

And so I humbly pass this award on to these fabulous bloggers. Check them out and see what these beautiful bloggers have to say.

Essie at The Accidental Mommy

Annie at One Mother's Day

Lerin at Beautiful Chaos

Jen at Harried Mom Of Four

Colleen at Martin Family Moments

Cris at Peters Peapod

Amber at {ae filkins}

Jenn at Tatertots and Jello

Please pass this award along to other bloggers who have made their way into your heart.

  1. Looks like some great blogs here...I'm excited to go check them all out!

  2. Thanks Jen! Wouldn't it be nice if we could all meet in person?!?!

  3. Hi Jen! Congratulations on your award! and thanks for passing it along to me :) You have a couple others listed there I'm not familiar with, I'll have to check them out too. Have a great day!

  4. Way to go...I know I got so excited when I received my first award also!

  5. Hi Jen! Thanks for the award. You are so sweet. I am so glad you started your blog. I have really enjoyed getting to know you. You are awesome!


  6. So sweet of you...thanks for the blogging friendship. I clicked on your FB profile, look for me over there.


  7. Thanks! You are flying along as a blogger. You are a delightful writer and I'm always disappointed when there aren't any posts! Little did I know when we worked together for a whole year! But, maybe we are both more interesting now! :) Actually, we may both express ourselves better through talking than writing.. I don't know.

    My particular delight has been seeing you and your soul-sister Accidental Mommy "discover" each other.

  8. Thank you, my friend!!! :) I'm glad we met via blogspot. I only wish you were in MY neighborhood!

    I put up a post, but basically says that I am way happier than is probably healthy to get an award!!!!


If you leave a comment, you will make me the happiest blogger in blogdom!
