I never cease to be amazed by this thing called the Blogosphere. It seems so bizarre to say it, but I've made so many great friends, most of whom I've never met in real life (that's the bizarre part).
A couple weeks ago, I won a contest over at Raising A & C -- the prize was my very most favorite new mascara -- Covergirl lashBlast. That was terrific enough -- but you know what else the fabulous "mah-meeee" threw in? Check it out:
That's Godiva chocolate and you'll notice TWO mascaras. And, because that girl understands my picky eater struggles -- a box of Mickey-a-roni and cheese. She's such a great bloggy friend. Isn't she the coolest?
Then, my pal Domestic Spaz sent an award my way!
Like mah-meeee, Spaz has been a blogging friend from the very beginning. I wanted to turn right around and bestow this award on her, because I do heart her blog. But, she obviously already received the award. So, I'm following the rules and passing on the love to seven other worthy recipients:
She Just Had to Say It -- for having the courage to spill the beans (the good, bad and engorged).
Finding Me in the Madness -- because there is no one more committed to health and well-being than Heather.
Domestic Accident -- because her baby steps toward green living are so inspiring, and she's got a wicked sense of humor.
Such the Spot -- because Darcie's writing is first rate and every post she writes is well worth the read.
Just Pure Lovely -- because Lori's photos inspire me to keep trying for just the right picture.
Style for the Stay at Home Mom -- for Leah's love of clothes, books and all things Banana Republic.
Gourmet Momma -- for always having an easy solution to the "What's for Dinner?" quandry.
And finally, one last bit of bloggy love. One of my closest college friends has finally started a blog. It took Lori a while to come over to the "Dark Side" (heck, it took me six months to convince her to create a Google profile so she could stop commenting as "Anonymous"), but she's finally jumped in with both feet. Go check out her new digs over at Barefoot in High Heels. And feel free to pass around some bloggy love -- leave her a comment!
