me? surrrrreously?? dang ya'll.

sooooooo Kate, over at She's Lump gave me... an award!!!!

thank you, thank you... i am so humbled.... (HA!) anyway-

This award states: This blog invests and believes in the PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships!

These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.

so with this award i am supposed to link to EIGHT other bloggers who are genuine, kind, warm people and also? peeps i got thru bloggin' that totally send my heart a-pitterpatter whenever we twitter or they update. bc really? blogging has become a really awesome release for me. a place where i can come and be honest and lame and goofy and snarky and? no one will tell me i'm wrong, or stupid, or say i'm wasting their time.... bc all ya'll (or as Marchellem says, ya'll'll) that come here? you want to be here. that means so much to me. more than i can tell you, bc really? i'd have to video myself sayin' THANK YOU for you to understand my level of gratitude that all of you listen to me moan and groan and laugh and be silly all the live long day.

anyway. so!!! let's get to it. the eight people i picked are: (in no particular order)

Melanie at The Little Gray House bc reading her is like a breath of fresh air. she is a hilarious mom to surfer skating downhill racing boys in southern cali and she always makes me laugh at her posts- whether they're small, random, all-encompassing, moving or just everyday livin'.

Jenn, bc she's a workin' mom, wife and above all a hilarious and fun woman. i twitter her all day long and honestly she's just one down-to-earth, cool chick.

Tweak, aka Melissa, bc she's as she likes to describe herself: a tweak!! she's a coffee lover (to extremes, my friends, believe you me) and she is just so caring and hilarious. she has SUCH a huge heart and she's always there to pat my back and give me a hug when i need one. well. virtual pats and hugs, i should say.

Ash over at Gone Parenting , bc she is just a snarky hilarious mom of two who does such a good job at being a wife, a mother, a career girl AND a kickass girl to boot. she cracks me up and also encourages me to get up and do something... she's just a year older than me, folks!! and she's already got it together.

and okay i may be bending the rules here (as i am want to do) but Stephanie at Live. Laugh. Love. deserves another shoutout even if she DID just get one today. bc really? she seriously has THE SWEETEST family. and she is just so peppy and upbeat all. the. time. you almost want to kick her, but you can't, bc she's just so gosh darn nice!!! and beautiful, and sweet, funny...i could go on. but go read her instead :)

i know i've tagged her before, buuuut.... T5M, aka The Five Moores, bc she's a hilarious mom and has such, SUCH a huge and giving heart and seriously? she honest-to-God pushes me to give more to those that are in need bc it's just what you do. no questions asked. she's very generous person, not just with monatary possessions but with her love, heart, humor, and good will.

Linda, at Fat Cat Crochet, bc hellllooo she just kicks ass. she's fun loving and daring and has such a big big heart (see a trend starting here?) and i just think she's the bestest. :)

and last but not least... She's Lump , bc hello? no other words needed: back atcha, hot cakes.

T5M said...

Lo! You're the bestest! Thanks for the award nomination!

You totally deserve the award! You are so real and so raw. I just get the sense that reading your blog is like reading your mind, just uncensored and transparent, and I appreciate that so much!

You said such kind things about me, I'm going to have to stop blogging about my "hatin' antics" and move onto something more inspirational soon, so that I don't make a liar out of you!

Thanks for the nomination and the kind words! Keep blogging!
