Why, thank you Mrs. C at Next to Heaven for this lovely award! Its my first and only, and I'm very excited!! Here are the rules:


1) Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link. (Done.)
2) Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you’ve newly discovered. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.


There's only one problem: I don't think I follow 15 blogs yet, and some of the ones I do follow already got this award. So here's what I'll do: I'll list the blogs that I follow compulsively, and when a new one pops up that I can't tear myself away from, I'll add them later. I know this isn't part of the rules, but its all I got for now. You'd think that someone as bored as I would spend all day reading blogs, but I'm behind on my Oprah lately, and there's just a lot of pressure!!


Here are the blogs I read, in no particular order, who haven't, to the best of my knowledge, received this award: Check 'em out:

Bridget Jones Has Nothing on me I root for her and her peen counter

Little Miss Hadley Updates on the life and times of a two-year-old I've never met

Middle Age Biker Her kids are grown, and I get great perspective from the other end of the child rearing continuum.

Someday I'll Get There who may have already gotten this award, but I haven't seen it.

Dooce This is the lady who was on Oprah and supports her whole family by blogging (and, y'know, writing books) and I love the daily pictures of her ever-patient dog, Chuck.

The Merc Shop This is a friend who has started a business, and I like to shout out to the housewives that are trying to make a buck and still have dinner on the table (or call in the pizza order, in my case)

CakeStarr Because I just joined her book club and I love cake.


That's it for now. I know, its a short list. I'll get on it, I swear! Stay tuned for before and after pictures of Perry's summer hairdo!

Oh thank you! For some reason however, the picture of the award is not showing up.

ALso, did you just take down your picture because it's not there anymore...I guess I answered my own question, huh?

I have an idea for a new picture, and I just hate that stupid blanket!!

Thanks!! I'll pay it forward - but the image doesn't seem to be there? Can you re-post or send it to me in an email?
