Please report to the Cafeteria for the Awards Assembly!

This week I was blessed to be given not one, but two blogging awards! Whoohooo!
I'm pretty excited about these because
A. I just like being given things.
B. This last week sucked.
Also, since they are fellow blogger given awards it's extra nice as we all sort of nurse our wounds and dust our shoulders off as one of our fellow bloggers has *ahem* misbehaved and that is always upsetting. This week was rough as I was quite worried about the little boy up in the balloon that wasn't, and the baby that wasn't taken by the TSA, and I would just like to say for the record : Don't embellish on my account, 'kay Ladies?
My favorite blogs are the slice of life blogs, people with kids, without em...I don't care. 
You went shopping? I want to know what you bought. Took your kids to the pumpkin patch? I want to hear about it! Kid lost a tooth? Pictures please! Your husband lost his job? Mine too, man that sucks.
It's the internet equivelent of looking in your living room windows, but with your permission and not creepily illegal. And it makes the world a smaller place. Reminds us that at the heart of it all, we are all the same. 
And while I would like my emotional distress back please, I promise not to get bitter or distrusting. 
I will believe you when you say you need prayers for your child. I will be outraged on your behalf if you've suffered an injustice. Of course I will be pissed if someone has lied to me, but hey! call me gullible (for reals, I don't leave the house on April Fools Day for a reason) but that's just who I am. A believer.


And now the goodies! 



I received this from Amo over at where a woman shakes her tablecloth . I'm thrilled to receive it as I think her blog is a great read. She is funny and insightful and very relatable. Added bonus: She has her very own Baby Max. (And who amongst us can resist a Baby Max? I sure as hell can't!) 
Both of the blogs I am passing it on too crack my hist UP, and these lovely snarky women always take the time to visit and to comment on my little corner of the world and I have truly appreciated that. 


The Obnoxious SAHM

6. Maneuvering Motherhood


Each one of these blogs resonates with me in a different way, I adore them all and look forward to their posts! Naked Jen is brave and strong, Yvonne changed her whole life and found a passion, calling and a career traveling and eating well, Jennifer has such insight and I adore her wit, Speaking from the Crib makes me laugh and then sucker punches me. The Shabby Tiara? Gives me the 'I Wants'. And Maneuvering Motherhood taught me to spell maneuver. I kid, but really? It's a great blog about motherhood and loving kids and not loosing yourself in the process. 


By the way, has anyone seen me? 


And that concludes a very long awards assembly. You are now excused. Off to study hall kids. No running!
