Wow! I've only been blogging here for a little over a week. So, imagine my surprise when I found out that Kristie, the sweetheart from Lily's Licorice, gave me my very first "I Love Your Blog" award. If you imagined me jumping up from my chair and doing a serious happy dance, you wouldn't be very far off. *laugh* As I told Kristie, it's such a joy for me to be able to read books both on my own and with my children. To be able to turn around and share that love with others by writing reviews for the books I read is like adding a cherry to the top of an already delicious sundae. I enjoy it that much. And to be recognized for it is like, wow, at least fifty cherries on top of the sundae. *laugh* So, THANK YOU, Lily's Licorice for the incredibly sweet gesture.
Now, in true blogosphere fashion, since I received an award, I'd like to pass it along to seven others who I feel are truly deserving.
So, without further ado, here are my seven nominations in no particular order...
Amanda from mommymandy.com - I absolutely love her product and book reviews. Not to mention the girl runs awesome giveaways like crazy.
Reading Coach Online - These people have not only a great blog but an entire site that's just full of helpful articles, wonderful tips, and great info regarding helping your children learn to read.
Super Coupon Girl - This girl is just plain nuts! And oh do I mean that in a good way. I'm serious. Never, I repeat NEVER, have I met or seen anyone that could work the coupon magic like this girl. She's a real inspiration!
Sarcastic Mom - I only recently discovered this one, but she's so funny I can't help but keep going back time and time again. It's a great mommy blog that you can read and say, "Whew, I'm not alone." ;P
Blessings Abound - Jacqueline is everybody's favorite Alaskan mom. And when she's not busy with all that being a SAHM entails (and therein I can relate), she shares great reviews for items I'd never in a million years discover on my own.
My Friend Amy - Amy is one of the most dedicated book bloggers I've run across. Not only is she religious about posting book reviews, interviews, previews, and contests but she's also the one who spearheaded this year's first ever BBAW. Which, if I do say so myself, was immense fun!
Skye's Ramblings - The thing I love best about this blog is that Skye, author of the adult Time Guardian series, writes and shares exactly what's on her mind in a very down to earth manner. You never know if what she'll post about will be books, science, jokes, or more. You just know that whatever she chooses to write about, it will be geniune and fun.
The above bloggers may put the "I Love Your Blog" graphic up on their page. Link the person you received the award from. (Me) Then you get to nominate seven more blogs for the award. Put links of the nominated blogs on yours, and then leave a message on the blogs you nominated.
Happy Blogging! =)
