The Versatile Blogger Award

I am channeling Sally Field at the moment. I feel like I should be clutching my award and saying to you all...
"You like me, right now, you like me!"
 But I won't {again} I will just get on with it...

The SassMaster at Don’t Come to My Circus and Try to Wear the Top Hat  gave me the Versatile Blogger Award this week! I must admit that I while I am grateful and excited, I am feeling a bit guilty… A little over a year ago I was given another blog award and did nothing about it. I suppose I should list “lazy” below, but I prefer to think myself as ‘distracted’ and ‘busy’ raising two toddlers rather than 'lazy'!

I never win anything... but to be given a blogger award by a peer… And to be given the same award she offered up my blogging hero Allie Brosh…AND she listed me above Allie {see for yourself}… Very cool! So Thank you, I will try to do you proud! 

The rules are:

Thank the person who gave you the award.

Thank You Ring Master Sass!
If I could nominate you I would. But you already received this award and deservedly so. Don't sell yourself short! Congratulations!

List 7 things about yourself.

Pass on the award to bloggers you've recently discovered.

Seven Things About Me:

  1. I tend to leap before I look… Like racing to Arizona when I was pregnant and now we’re stuck…here… in the ‘Wild West’. And believe me, AZ is the ‘Wild West’
  2. I don’t like to talk religion or politics… Unless I am with my two other liberal girlfriends, who also wonder how on earth we ended up here with the conservatives and their rogue Sherriff.  
  3. I love watching people’s reactions when I answer that “My girls are 18 months apart, to the day.” 
  4. I sometimes wonder what happened to my days of shoe shopping, pedicures, manicures, and Happy Hour – But wouldn’t trade my life as a SAHM for anything! 
  5. My girls’ laughs make my heart swell – Their laughs could pull me out of the darkest place! 
  6. I don’t miss working {a paid job} at all and would give anything to stay home with my kids forever! 
  7. I desperately want to be the next Erma Bombeck, even if I know in my heart I will never be that brilliant!

I would love to nominate some people for this award, but fifteen (according to official rules) is more than... Well I could scrape up 15 but don't know I I know fifteen that deserve it!  So I am officially awarding th following brilliant bloggers: (some of whom I have been admittedly following for a while - sorry!)

Congratulations to the five bloggers above! 
Thank you for doing what you do! I love following your blogs!

I follow a ton of brillinat, funny, entertaining blogs. If you are wondering why I didn't nominate you {and I know a few of my besties might be} it's out of respect for your family's privacy. I felt keeping your home and children's locations off of the information super highway was more important than a blog award! But I love you all!
