The Crud and An Award

I've been a little light on the blogging for the past week or so. We have had an infestation of what I not-so-affectionately call The Crud (that's an actual medical term, right???) at my house. I was sick all last week and by Thursday Little Ricky had come down with it too. Somehow Ricky managed to dodge the germs, but he spent most of last week taking care of us, so he didn't get off totally scot-free. (I'm a whiny patient, so he REALLY didn't get off scot-free!!!)

We are all on the mend now, thankfully, but it has put me behind in blog-land. So let's start back nice and easy, shall we?

A couple of weeks ago, Nanny Dee at New England Nanny gave me the "One Lovely Blog" Award. Thanks, Nanny Dee!!

The rules of this award are...

Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link. Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you’ve newly discovered. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

I could easily give this award to more than 15 people as I have tons of blogs I love to read, but in order to not inundate you with new things to read I will stick with the rules. I am happy to pass this award on to...

Creative Thursday

I Don't Think Prada is the Answer They're Looking For



NieNie Dialogues

Party Perfect

Petit Elefant

Pink Cupcake Vintage

Soulful Noel

Stepford Stories

What Andie Wears

As you read through these blogs, you will probably notice a trend. While these bloggers are a wide variety of ages and are in different stages of life--some single, some married, some with babies, some with older kids, some with no kids--they are all strong, creative, opinionated, smart women. Many are snarky (as I've mentioned before, love me snarky!), all grab my attention with what they write and leave me wanting more.

Check them out. You won't be sorry!

Awww, thank you. I can't help the snark, sometimes it just sneaks out.

Marisa and Creative Thursday said...

thank you Lucy!

Mighty M said...

Congrats on the award - hope you are all healthy soon!! ;-)

Karen said...

Thanks Lucy! I'm going to love exploring your faves as I'm a big fan of snarky too ;)

Seriously?... SERIOUSLY?! OMG! I am so stoked and really honored. We writers sit by ourselves day after day surrounded by discarded beer cans and cats and wonder "Is anybody out there?!" Thank you so much for this very sweet validation.

Big hugs, Jayne

Get OUT! My very first award?! I'm thrilled. Thrilled I tell you!
First I'd like to thank Lucy, my blog twin, for the great honor, for her kind words and for making my day. And of course all the other people that made this day possible. Wait - that's just me. Okay. Then I'd like to thank any of you who have been kind enough to drop by my blog and hang out with me.
I'm off to get a celebratory coffee! It's gonna be a good day!

Kristi Stevens said...

THANK YOU!!! I love love love it and will display it proudly!

Thank you so much! I am actually capable of being much, much more snarky than I am on SCS. Check out youknowyoulovefashion.com for my REALLY snarky side! I reel it in on SCS, but not on YKYLF.

You rock soooo big! I wasn't feeling lovely today, and that certainly helped. Right back at you, and I hope your household de-sicks soon.

Camily said...

Oh . . . my . . .I . . . don't know . . .what (sniffle) . . . to say. Thank you to my ever-so snarky friend! I'm honored!

Jess Noel said...

I just read this, because I've been entertaining my parents for the past few days (and have been sadly neglecting blog-world)!! Thanks for the lovely award, and I'm so honored to be considered snarky :) HUGE HUGS!!!!!

Tawnia said...

It's great to have a family of friends. We can turn on our computers read a couple of stories, have a laugh, and we are never alone:)
Love Tawnia
