Clappy Hands! I won an award!


Special thanks to Army Mom's Place for declaring me a Beautiful Blogger! It's my first official blog award, and while it's clear that it is definitely a chain letter networking tool, it's still cool, and I accept with full honors. Plus, I think the badge is pretty and I want to put it in my ever growing, suddenly overflowing sidebar.

As with every chain letter networking tool, there are rules. And here they are (edited slightly, but the spirit of the chain letter award is still there):

Here's what we have to do to own the award:
1. Thank, then link to the person that gave you the award
2. Pass this award on to 15 how ever many bloggers you want to that you've recently (or not so recently) discovered and who you think are fantastic
3. Contact said bloggers to let them know they've won.
4. State 7 Things about yourself!

And the award goes to.... 
  1. Alexis at The Well-Read Mom because she's truly awesome and funny and I love her. Even though we haven't seen each other in person since she was about 10 years old. 
  2. Amber at Because Babies Grow Up because she posts cool ideas of things to do with your kiddos.
  3. Barbara at Barbara's Beat because she has the longest, scrolliest sidebar ever! Heck, this award might even be in it somewhere.
  4. Anna at abdpbt even though she probably won't repost it. She's cool. And I like her. You are beautiful Anna! The dooce looks like an alien next to you!
7 Things About Me:
  1. I cannot, I repeat: CAN NOT sleep in a bed unless it has been made. Even if I have to make it right before I climb in for the night. Beds must be made or I can not sleep. 
  2. I love to shovel snow and I greatly miss doing it. Even though I live in a land of snow and ice, it is just not possible to effectively shovel snow with just one hand. (See this post for reference). 
  3. I love cats, but I never ever ever ever want to own one of my own. 
  4. I am an EMT Basic. For about another 30 days, when my license will lapse - unless a miracle happens and there is a free 24 hour medical refresher happening in my living room sometime in the next two weeks. 
  5. When I have a cocktail, I like a Maker's Mark Manhattan, straight up. 
  6. I have been to Kathmandu.
  7. Most days I wear yoga pants or some variant of sweat pants. What can I say, they are comfortable.

You're so sweet and funny. I am still learning, and as soon as I can get some of my sidebar onto a free-standing page it will be gone so my page rank wil move faster as will my front page. LOL. But, I love blogs, a lot of blogs, and blogging.

I wear some variation of sweat pants or yoga pants most days, too. Even when I actually get dressed up, it's just for a small amount of time, and then I go back to the yoga pants as soon as possible.

Thanks so much the blogging award, it makes me feel great when somebody likes my blog enough to recognize it.

Thank you so much for the award, I will put it up as soon as I get a chance to make a decent post about it.

Amen to the bed thing, even Lizzie's crib gets made up after each nap! Ka-Ray-Zee!

Ooo, thanks for the award. I love what you said about my blog. It's the message I hope comes across. I'm glad it does for you!
