Awww...My Very First Award (The Friendship Award)

Wow...I feel so special. I've been blogging since April of 2008, and I just received my first award. I'm uber excited. Michelle over at My Crazy Life with a Toddler sent it to me. I came upon Michelle's blog through Entrecard, and I couldn't be happier to call her my blogging friend. Go visit her blog and get a good laugh. She won't disappoint!

The Friendship Award means:"These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in 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, without further ado...here are my nominees (in random order) for the Friendship Award. I'll drop a comment to all of you to let you know to come pick up your award! Enjoy the fame and status. :)

1. Laura over at The Neil Family. Laura is my neighbor and dear friend. I just love her to pieces, and I'll be sad to see her move at the end of February. But -- I know that we will forever be friends.

2. Tracy over at Confessions of a Semi-Slacker Mom. Tracy and I grew up together, and I love looking into her family through the voice of her blog. She has such a way with words.

3. Debbie over at A Day in the Life of a Crazy Mom. While I've never met Debbie in real life, I feel like I know her. She has twins that are just about a month older than Micah, so it's been fun watching them develop through her blog.

4. Jenny over at Charity Mom. Again, I've never met Jenny in real life, but I feel like I've known her for years. I came across her blog during hir firstborn daughter, Allie's, fight with leukemia. She really pours her heart out, and I really enjoy reading what she has to say.

5. Sasha over at Barely Keeping It All Together. Sasha is another blogging friend (nope, we haven't met either). She is such a hoot, and she tells it like it is. I've also picked up some blogging tips from reading her site...go check her out.

6. Karen over at Hohn Happenings. Karen and I met while teaching at Westside Elementary, and we quickly became great friends. Our husbands also became friends, and we were sad to see them move (the air force moved them to a different base). She inspired me to start a blog because I loved keeping up with her family by reading her site.

7. Haley over at Love, Life Family...and Then Some. I stumbled across Haley's blog through Entrecard, and I really enjoy reading and learning more about her family through her blog.

8. Tara over at Kidz...A Connection for Inspiration. I met Tara through The Secret is In the Sauce. Her blog is such an inspiration, and she is fabulous for what she is doing. Go check out her blog and find some inspiration.

Okay, there you go. Now, I'm off to leave comments so you all can pick up your award!
