Who, me?

I know it may seem silly or trivial to some, but I tend to be one of those people who is truly flattered by getting an award. I think that we, as bloggers, put a lot of time and thought into what we say on here, so it's nice to know that other people think so too. My friends (yeah, I said friends) Layla and Jen awarded me with this beauty, and I. am. flattered.

I'm not going to tell you how pretty Layla is (uhhh..have you seen her?) or that she has a beautiful home (uhhh...have you seen it?). What I love about Layla's blog is that she's willing to show us all the aspects of home decorating--including those "not as beautiful" before pictures. She's diving into the world of starting her own business called The Lettered Olive, so go support her (and her mom)! As for Jen, she did not photoshop those kids in her pictures. She has five of them. They're hers. She raises them. Her blog has it all--humor, home decorating inspiration, and GREAT shopping finds that will leave you drooling. I commend her for all the balancing she does, and I'm so glad she makes time for us in blogland.

The rules are as follows:

1. Display the logo proudly on your blog.

2. Add a link to the person(s) who awarded you.

3. Nominate seven other deserving bloggers.

4. Add links to their blogs on your blog.

5. Leave a message for your nominees on their blogs.

It's 12:24am, so I don't think I'll do 7. Believe me, I could do about 60 if I had the time tonight. For now, I'll give you a few.

I took my mom to Chris's blog today, and I found myself saying, "and she did this...and this...and this...all on her OWN!". I am amazed at the work Chris does. If I ever have a project that I want done, I will definitely call her and ask her to bring all of her tools. If you see something you like on her blog, you can bet that she did it. Go check her out!

If you ever need some ideas on how to throw/decorate for a party, go visit Saucy. She has so many great pictures on her blog, it could very well take you hours to get through it all. However, the number one thing you must see is her "new" laundry Whatever it is, it is simply spectacular! Just go. Now!

What I love about Kara's blog is that you never know what you're gonna get. One day, it's some adorable pictures of clothing, the next day it's pictures from HGTV, and another it's a fabulous project she did at home. I'm new to her blog, but I love to see what she has up her sleeve. When you visit, track down her new headboard--it's fantastic!

I really could go on and on. I certainly have "my people" out there (you know I love your blogs, girls), but I am hoping you'll go visit these blogs. Who knows? Hopefully, I'll get you hooked on a blog that you didn't know about! Enjoy!
P.S. I have an "Indiana Jones" birthday post coming, but I'm still busy cleaning cake off my floor and juice boxes from out of the yard. I'll get to that post tomorrow.

Wow! Thanks! I am thrilled. Now I have to nominate seven others? Whew, that will keep me busy. I can't nominate you, can I... because you'd totally be on my list.

Congratulations! I'd be flattered too if I were you. I look forward to checking out the other blogs you recommended. As long as I can get The Son to have some "quiet time" that is!
