I Heart These Blogs

Posted on: September 5, 2008

An award!!  For ME?!?  I’d like to thank the academy . . . or rather Michelle at Life With Three.  How kind of her!!  I secretly think it’s not necessarily that she loves my new blog, but rather because if she doesn’t show me some linky love, I could tell all kinds of stories about her that she might not want others to know!!  I mean, we were college roommates, and I remember telling her that someday I would regale her children with such fun stories about their crazy mom!!  There’s a line from Beaches where Bette Midler says “I know everything there is to know about you, my dear.  And my memory is long.  Very long.”  I sometimes feel that way about Michelle!!    So thanks for the award — rightbackatcha, girl!



So I’m new to this whole blog world.  And I have a handful of blogs in my blogroll, and more in my feedreader that I’m still getting to know.   But the rule to this award is that you must bestow it upon seven other bloggers.   Seven?!    Here we go, in no particular order . . .

Domestic Spaz would be get my vote, but I know that SHE was the one who sent it over to Michelle!   Let’s still count her as one, though.  Just because.  It’s my award now and I can do with it what I will!

The Mother Tongue.  I’ve been reading Heather’s posts for a while now, and sometimes she just hits the nail right on the head!  See the very spirited comments on her breastfeeding post, and her post on the female atheletes’ Olympic uniforms.  She took the words right from my mouth!!  I found her blog from a little blurb in Parenting magazine, because Heather was a contestant on Jeopardy.  You just have to read her comments about losing on the show!  I could link to some other posts, but I don’t know Heather and have only commented a few times to her — so let’s hope she doesn’t think I’m a stalker.  Let’s move on, shall we?

Amy at Milk Breath and Margaritas.  I found her blog and had to check it out just based on the name alone!  And she is funny!

Here’s another blog I Heart and you just have to visit:  Pocketfuls of Sunshine is brand new and she’s posting away!!  Take a look at life from a mom of two under two (and only 13 months apart).  Give her some love and tell her you how you found her . . . and by the way, she’s my cousin, too.  Nepotism strikes again!

I recently found The 3 R’s:  Reading, ‘Riting, and Randomness and we share a love for books!!  Say hello to Florinda (yes, that’s her real name.  I thought at first it was maybe Linda and she lived in Florida?  But no, I was wrong.)

I’ll put one of the big-time bloggers up here, too — Dawn from Because I Said So.  I started reading Dawn’s blog during the whole e-bay phenomenon — she posted some Pokemon cards with a hilarious commentary about how they somehow got in her shopping cart when she took all 6 kids to the store!  What an internet sensation — and now she has a book deal with Guideposts, with her first book to debut around Mother’s Day 2009.  See?  Blogging CAN get you somewhere!

Well, that’s six, and we’ll count Michelle as seven, since I really do love her blog, too.   Thanks for the award, Michelle!!

For all you faithful readers (there might be 3 of you or so, including my mom — I get a lot of hits only when I participate in a carnival), go visit these bloggers, tell them I sent you, and leave a comment!  Let me know in my comment section what other blogs I should start reading, too.

Have a great weekend!
