Totally Flattered

update: after posting this, it came to my attention that when I changed up the blog, I lost a bunch of folks from my previous blog roll. I don't know where they went, but hopefully after floating off into cyber-space they'll join together and return!
All that to say that if you notice you disappeared from my blogroll, PLEASE let me know. Or, if you are new to me and would like to be on it, just let me know and I'll add you!
Also, please notice that my blogroll has a little "show all" at the bottom-it only shows the ten most recently updated at a time. So if you don't see you, click that and you may appear-magically!

Well by golly, I've received an award! And now I'm ready to pass it on!

Thank you, PsychMamma-you're too kind!
And speaking of PsychMamma, she's another one you should check out. This blog is rated E for Excellent; a wonderful place for parenting and special needs resources, and good for a few mommy stories on life with two year old Jenna.

So now I'm passing on the award lovin' to SEVEN blogs I HEART:

Love Well
on top of the world (or at least really far north)
Take 90 West
A Spot on the Sopha
Divergent Pathways
...sensible of shoe
Refracted Light
(okay now all you award winning bloggers, pass it on! I'm new at this, but I'm pretty sure that's what you do.)
I have loved these blogs since first sight and have not been disappointed yet! Give them a read--GOOD stuff!
There were some very strict guidelines for my choices. Like;
  • thought about blogs
  • thought about blogs I read
  • thought about blogs I love (heart) to read
  • typed in the first seven blogs I thought of and heart (love) to read
See? VERY strict. (I had to do it this way or I would think about it way too hard and sit here all day pondering my choices (so don't feel bad if you've been left out this time, I'll get you in my Sunday Suck Ups) and I've got meal-planning to do...yes, I said meal-planning-I'm trying not to be so scattered. But like I read on The Antics of the Three 22nds the other day, "taking care of children is laughably easy, provided you don't try to do anything else." -Fernando Moore (Parenting 2008) Therefore, I may remain scattered while having fun with my kiddos as summer closes.)

(do you like how I threw in an extra blog link there? Tricky huh?)

Sweet and all, but you still can't hide the fact that the recipients of this award have only "won" honorable mention. The true winners get the Sunday Suck-ups and/or a coveted space on your blogroll;) I fear I may come across as a sore loser, which I am totally not.....I love knowing that anything I pick off your shelf......err, blog list will be an absolutely fabulous read! Thanks for spreadin the sympathy love;)

Notice the wink. I AM totally cool with honorable mention. For real. And I mean it. Thanks! :)

You have a great blog yourself, so hopefully you get mentioned often on other's blogs!! A little off topic, but I thought it was absolutely wonderful that you made mention of the Nie site and the family's need for prayers. I have since passed on the information to many people in hopes that it will help speed their recovery and bring some much-needed help. I was truly touched by their story and what an amazing family they have. So thanks for writing such wonderful fun things to read as well as being such a good person!!

I just scanned frantically through my blogroll thinking, what is she talking about, of course she's there! Cause you were but somehow you're not. Because I made my new blog and then I did this thing where you can just choose "add all from google reader" but for some reason it didn't "add all." Ugh. There are other ones missing too, now that I looked!
AND, how do you know you won't still be a Sunday Suck Up?

joolee said...

Now I feel like a total shmuck! I really was surprised that you ever had me on the shelf with the likes of Navel Gazing at it's Finest anyway. (She ROCKS my world!) And I knew my posts had been pretty lame as of late. I totally wouldn't/didn't blame you for dropping me. But in the case that it really was an accident........I'll stop gorging myself on all that junk food behind the tupperware as consolation for being ostracized by the coolest Heather on the block;) j/k......it was only 3 or 4 Dove chocolates. No serious damage done:)

Just thought I'd mention that I, also, was on your blogroll and now I'm not. Fine if you're whittling down your list. Can't be on everyone's blogroll. Just thought I'd mention just in case, while you're checking.

P.S. I still heart your blog! ;-)

Heather of the EO said...

My apologies to everyone who fell off the blogroll! I'll be working on fixing that!
Like I added in the post, if you want to be on it, just say the word!

Brillig said...

Clearly, your blogroll is perfectly accurate. I'm there, and that's really all that matters, right?

Congrats on the well-deserved award!

Peanut said...

Congrats on the award! You deserve it. I'm also loving the new look, although I loved the old one too... I've always been partial to blue, especially the blue-grey you're living in now!!

Congrats on your award--your blog (and comments on mine and others) are always favorites. I love the way you think.

And then you passed it along to me? Cool! Thanks!

Eowyn said...

Thank you! I've never gotten an award in my current incarnation. I'm excited about it.

I enjoy your blog so it's a good combination.

Lisa @ Take90West said...

Thanks so much for the award, I am totally flattered!

Congrats to you!

(Thought I left a comment on this yesterday, but when I was reading your blog today, I noticed it wasn't there. I have no idea...blogger drives me nuts!!)
