Diamonds are a girl's best friend, wouldn't you agree?

Please excuse this interruption. I [not so] recently received two awards I must give thanks for.

The first is from my friend, NYC Girl over at Discovering Me, who is just too sweet to pass along the Your Blog is Fabulous award to me. She is ab-fab (absolutely fabulous, no?) herself, and I encourage you to go on over and say hi.

How cool is that? Am I truly that fabulous? Is it even possible? I'm not quite sure. I think I am supposed to pass this along to 10 or 15 new blogs, but I'm picking my fave fabulous bloggers and tossing it their way!

* Elisa over at Diary of an Unlikely Housewife ~ I truly hope that Elisa knows, by now, that she is fabulous, but I am going to remind her anyway!

* Rhaven at Surburban Rebel Mom. Looking for someone to tell it like it is? She's your girl. I do have to add my disclaimer that I kind of know her in real life, and she's equally as fantastic as you'd guess from her blog.

The second is the 5-Diamond Award, that has been passed on to me by Erin at
The Mother Load. If you have yet to check her out, please do so immediately. She is friggin hilarious. I wish we were neighbors so I could force her to be my newest BFF. I kid you not. Go. Run, don't walk.

And as for my sparkly blogging friends, I have recently added a handful to my blogroll for easy access and to remind everyone that they're out there, and they shine in a way I should share them with you here, as well.

* The Girl With The Flour in her Hair over at Peeling an Orange with a Screwdriver. Need I say more? Her name and her blog name should be enough to get you over there.

* Tamara over at The (Un)Experienced Mom. I found her through her Fill in the Blank Friday meme, and I really enjoy her blog!

* That One Mom, over at A Day in the Life, Chronicles of an Only Parent. She is real. She is open. She is fun. And she often posts pictures of hotties. Yum. Enjoy!

* And lastly, let me introduce you to Nancy. You can find her at If Evolution Really Works ... and more recently at Life 2 Us, a new blogging community by moms for moms that she helped create. Check out both sites, and I promise you will not be disappointed!

Oh, and Erin, I'm tossing both of these in your direction, lady. You already know you sparkle, but you're quite fabulous, as well.

Thanks for the awards, and I hope those of you I pass them on to recognize how much you make me smile when your posts show up in my Google reader. Feel free to accept, give a speech, pass them along, share or don't. No pressure here. I just wanted to take this opportunity to tell you that you rock, sparkle and SHINE!


  1. How did I miss this?!?! Sheesh, I'm losin' it!

    You are the sweetest, most thoughtful bloggy friend. Thank you for my awards and for blowing smoke up my ass!


  2. Congratulations on the pretty new bling!

  3. Awww, thanks for the bling!!! It will look so pretty on my page! You're the best!

  4. Ok, I feel like such an idiot!!!!!

    I absolutely saw your comment on my blog about this and meant to come over and say thanks for the award. Only some how, it has taken me 11 days to do so! It's like I forgot and then sitting here, just now, on Christmas Eve, thought to myself, "Hang on. Didn't Andrea tell me to visit her blog for something she left for me?"

    So I am so sorry! I have a HORRIBLE case of mommy-brain! But thank you, thank you, thank you for thinking of me and passing this bling on! You're fabulous!

    Merry Christmas!
