I'm Just a Square Peg Trying to Fit Into a Round Hole...

And I got awarded for it! Granted it was from my husband, and he probably did it to get some nookie, but it still counts DAMN IT!

I don't know if I am more excited that I got the award, or that he did. I pleases me to no end that he has been accepted into our bloggy family. Although, he did have me to pave the way for him, but that's what I'm here for, to make things easier for the ones I love.

2008 has been an incredible year for this little blog. I decided to go back to blogging at the very end of 2007 after a hiatus and I just posted and posted my little heart out. I can't believe that in the short time of a year, it just took off like it did. I know I'm quirky, but I am not afraid to let my freak flag fly, and as it turns out, it's entertaining as well.

I also got to meet some wonderful people and read some wonderful things through their blogs. All of you guys have really raised the bar, and I really hope I can hold my own.

I'm suppose to give this away to 3 worthy bloggers. And I'm all...THIS IS HARD!!!

Pooba - This girl kills me, she really does. Very, very entertaining and check out her aprons!

Knit By God's Hand - This is not because I'm trying to suck up to try to get her to make me a scarf (or teach me how to make my own) I truly love her blog and her spirit!

Tales from the Lunchroom and "This is the Day..."PS118:24 - They are a two-fer! I can't possibly choose between these two sisters.

Minxy Mimi Unplugged - I'm new to her blog, but she is fabulous! Trust me, you'll love her!


On to New Bidness.

Kimmy over at Our Life's Journey does some thing called Fabulous Foto Friday, I want to participate. I don't have too many new pictures from the week, so I went through some old ones and here's what I came up with...

Emerson showing Vivi a caterpillar.

Congrats to the winners!

That picture of the girls is absolutely gorgeous.

Thanks so much girlfriend. I love your freak flag!! Did you do this just to get some nookie? lol

Really, I am honored. I will post my pics on Sunday or Monday. I have to ponder it for a bit. I love Pooba too. Her blog cracks me up. That baby smasher.

I am off next week and am gonna be in bloggy heaven. The kids will be in school but I am off for exams, so no lunches. I plan on visiting a lot of different blogs so I will check out the picks you and Mattyflower (love that) posted.

And, that picture is precious.

Congratulations on your award! You totally deserve it, nookie or no nookie.

I can totally see Vivi reaching out to put that caterpillar in her mouth! She didn't do it, did she?

Heather said...

Aww, you are just too much! This is definitely one award I will proudly display!

I think it's awesome that you and Matt both blog. Joe is gonna be a guest blogger here soon, and while I'm a little nervous (you should hear the things he's threatening to write...) I'm also glad for him to join me in this (addiction) of mine.

You totally deserve this award, the both of you. I LOVE coming over to your blogs, and more often than not, Michelle and I are calling each other, laughing our asses off over something one of you said!

Now that's a sign of a great blog!

Cammie said...

excellent award. now go put out.

R Susanna said...

Congratulations on the award and congratulations to everyone else! That is such a cute picture of your girls. AND at least someone is getting some around here ;)

Call Me Cate said...

Oh, the tactics men will try to guarantee some nookie... If Joe ever sends me a blog award, I'll see right through it.

You are totally deserving of the award. Yours is a blog I look forward to each day because I'm never sure exactly what I find when I click but chances are I'm going to enjoy it.

Grand Pooba said...

Congrats on your award! And thank you thank you for passing it on to me! It's the best one yet because of the cute puppy. Awwwww! Dear to my heart!

You must have a wicked camera, that photo is awesome.

And the award counts double if your hubby gave it to you because he knows EVERYTHING about you and still wanted to give it to you!
