My New Gold Card

I apologize up front for my lack of blogging. I enjoy all efforts that come with posting something every day, and it's bothered me all weekend that I've been putting my blog to the side. But sometimes life happens and it's all you can do to keep up with it. I'll get to the events of the weekend later today or tomorrow, since there are pictures to be added.

For the moment, I think it'd be nice to spread some bloggy love out into the world. Thanks to my lovely friend Jamey of Walking by Faith, I have a chance to peak your interest in some other bloggers that I think you need to get to know.

Without further ado...

Jamey was kind enough to adorn my blog with this:

Thank you!! What a sweet thing to send my way, and even more fun, it's a new one! (To me, anyway.) I like the rules for this one, and I'm glad to abide by them. Please follow along with me.

The terms for this cool BFF Gold Card are described as follows:

1. Only five people allowed

2. Four have to be dedicated followers of your blog.

3. One has to be someone new or recently new to your blog and live in another part of the world.

4. You must link back to whoever gave you the award. (Done -- I linked back above.)

Hopefully, nobody listed here will be offended that I consider them 'dedicated followers' of my blog.

Jen the Mom -- If you're not reading Cheaper Than Therapy already, then you're missing out on something great. In person, this friend of mine is known to be very quiet and shy, but her personality truly pops on her blog. Give yourself the opportunity to know the real her -- you won't be sorry.

Ali -- Home of the Lazy Dog was one of the first blogs that I started following - partly for the recipes, and partly because she's a Husky owner, too. She always leaves wonderful comments, and is someone I'd love to meet IRL one day.

Susan -- Who doesn't love a single mom who is working her whatsits off to raise two daughters on her own? Susie Wears the Pants is a great dose of reality with a lot of humor mixed in. Don't miss out on her!

Tasha -- She likes me! She likes me! My favorite Las Vegas blogger loves showgirls, Girl Nights Out and, apparently, reading my blog. (I didn't mean to imply she just loves girls -- she loves her hubby, too!) Read The Housewife Diaries and you'll see why she's so much fun.

As for a new reader -- I'm happy to point you towards Mrs. Staff Sergeant at Married to the Military. I originally went to her blog out of interest in her blog name, but quickly fell in love with her and her beautiful family! (Two boys and a girl on the way!) I also really enjoy her input about living on a military base. I've done a lot of that in my life, but not as a mom, so it's interesting to see her perspective. Take some time and get to know her.

Aw Merrie, you shouldn't have! But I love you for it! ;) You are well deserving too and you are exactly who you are in person and in, witty, and fun!

Merrie said...

Aw shucks. :)

Love you, too!

Woo Hoo!!! Thanks Merrie!

Awww, that's sweet of you! Thanks :)
