What a surprise!

I visited blogathoner Anjuli's blog bhulbhulaiyan today, and was surprised at the end of today's post. She was awarded the Liebster award, and passed along to me!

I agree with  Annette Gendler that Anjuli deserves it - I love her blog (and her name!) This award is intended to connect bloggers, especially those with less than 200 followers.

In accepting the award, I must :

* Show my thanks to the blogger who gave me the award by linking back to him or her.
* Reveal my top 5 picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
* Post the award on my blog.
* Bask in the love from the most supportive people on the internet—other writers.
* And best of all – have fun and spread the good will.

Ok, so my five picks... this is the hard part! 

Depression Cookies - Written by Tia Bach, coauthor of the book with the same title. Yes, I've mentioned the book a few times lately. Well, it's a wonderful book! And by reading the blog, you'll see why. She shares her mother, her daughters, and her writing process with us.

The Traveling Fridge - Midge and I "met" through Twitter, and she is just as fun in person as she is online. She takes fun vacations, too, and posts really cool pictures on her blog.

Ph.D. Candi - Denae, until recently, was on my TV as a local news anchor. She is another local Twitter-friend. Through her tweets I can "experience" lots of fun local places that I won't get to any time soon but would love to try. I'm building a "must-visit" list, though! She is now working on her Ph.D. in Communication (thus the name of her blog). Check out her Etsy shop, too (linked on her blog) - she has some fabulous vintage finds!

Love, Life, and a Baby - I found Joonluv's blog way back when we were both members of the February 2010 birth club on She is the force behind Fit Mama Club.

Let's Talk and Walk - Yet another local Twitterer! Glenneth is a real fitness inspiration. I get tired simply reading about all she's accomplishing! You will find fitness information and inspiration on her blog, and eye candy every Wednesday. Can't beat that!


  1. I'm honored. Thanks so much. I will let you know when I get my acceptance post up! Have a wonderful weekend.

  2. I finally posted about this... thanks again!
