Spreadin' the Love!

I was recently honored to receive a Versatile Blogger Award from the first person to list me on her blogroll as a "must read."  Well, other than people to whom I am related or have known for the last five years...  I am talking about the lovely Vanita at The After Bedtime Blog.  I want to sincerely thank her and send her lots of working mommy encouragement vibes -- she's a full-time working mom of four who has just started blogging and I bow to her superior time management skills.

The rules for accepting the award include graciously thanking the award giver, sharing 7 things you may or may not know about me, and passing it along.  Since Vanita is a new blogger, I decided to pass this along to several friends who are also writing brand spanking new (or pretty darn close to new) blogs:

chgomomx3 at Funny on the Internet -- She and I actually share a brain.  Sometimes we even use it at the same time, ooh!
KellyLane at Kelly Rambles On -- A funny lady with the biggest heart known to man.  *muah*
The Laughing Librarian at The Other Side of the Stacks -- You don't want to be drinking anything when you read this one, lest you spit it on your screen...
Becky at WAITING FOR OUR GIRL  OK, Becky has been blogging for longer than I have, but she totally rocks!  And she's sharing her family's adoption journey with the world.
Anna at Earn Money From Home (For Real) Anna is a stay-at-home mom who knows how to work the internet, baby.  She's checked out and participated in nearly every link she furnishes.

Why did I pick these lovely women?
Five years ago we all met in an online parenting forum -- we all have children between the ages of 4 and 5 and have been with each other through thick and thin, the good, the bad, the ugly and the sublime.  These lovelies are my online sisters, so don't say nuttin' bad about 'em or you'll have the full force of my wit with which to recon.

Seven other things you may or may not know about me:
1.  It pains me to end a sentence with a preposition.  Hence the awkward threat above.
2.  I don't like beer.
3.  I really want to cut my hair into a fauxhawk and dye it bright pink, but it's not likely to happen.
4.  My vocal range goes almost as low ans Scott's.
5.  I don't care for scrambled eggs.  For some reason, that texture makes me gag.
6.  Lilacs are my favorite flower.
7.  I could spend all day kissing Violet's plump little cheeks.  Sigh...

Eewh, scrambled eggs. Can't stand the smell. You're definitely a must read. I love visiting. You may notice that I'm strict about that list.

Ooo, congrats on your beautiful award! I love lilacs too, they don't get enough attention! Thanks for visiting me in support of TMC!
