It's a proud day for me, folks. So let the festivities commence!
1st: I've gotta say one nice thing about a man in my life. Since no virtually no dudes read my blog (except for Goodfather and we all know how awesome he is since he's the one who gave me the award - also all you lurker dudes can correct me if I'm wrong) I guess I'll say something nice about Ian. He's a really good friend of mine and he's an excellent husband. SO THERE!
2nd: I've gotta list six ways I measure success in my life
1. My baby doesn't get sick
2. I grocery shop under budget during the week
3. If I get showered and ready for the day before noon, that's success.
4. If I keep up on the dishes means I'm successful
5. I make an effort to get together with friends during the week = SUCCESS
6. Frankles sleeps in his crib for at least 1/2 the night is great success
2nd: Now I've gots to nominate 6 other bloggers who "measure up" to my high standards. I choose the following:
Derek, my real life friend since elementary school
Nicole, not only is she family but she's one of the funniest bloggers I know.
Nicole 2, a brilliant photographer and designer and a good friend.
Joy at Joys of Home. She's got a great blog and was my inspiration for all my furniture rehab stuff.
The Daily Stranger. This is a blog by my friends Derek (above) and Jeremy. It's always fun to read.
Katie, she's a great writer (and my 1/2 marathon training partner!).
So that's it! Oh! And all you nominees you can go ahead and nominate 6 blogs you feel "measure up" to receive that little award. Or not, and hog all the glory for yourself. You can also list 6 ways you measure success in your life. Stay tuned for more mediocrity.
