Over the Top

I have to admit, today as I was checking in with my favorite blogs and reading comments left on my blog, I got a little excited. Why you ask? Because I was honored with this award:

From The Treat Girl. No, I don't know her, except through comments back and forth, stories, words, and pictures on her blog. Check her out ~ I dare you! She is a mom like me, with 3 kids as well. She is a Pittsburgh Steelers fan, like.... well, you get the idea. Unfortunately, she likes the Yankees (like some of my other friends.... yes, you know who I'm talking to...), but I won't hold that against her, because she seems too fabulous otherwise! Anyway, thank you Miss Treat Girl ~ you have made me smile today!

Now, onto the business of accepting this award.

Here is the deal ~ Now, I get to give this award to 6, yes 6 of my favorite blogs. Then you (my award recipients) get to follow these instructions ~ like me.

1.) Thank and post URL to the blog that gave the award.

2.) Pass the award along to 6 brilliantly over the top blogs (blogs you love!) Alert them so they know to receive the award.

I'm nominating these 6 blogs:

Why you ask?

Because these are all blogs from real women. Women just trying to be the best they can be for their families, for others and for themselves. They regularly bring smiles to my face and can really get me thinking. They are funny, serious, loving, crafty and just enjoyable to be around (um... a couple in real life and the majority through my lovely friend Ms. Computer).

So ladies... HERE'S TO YOU!
