Just when you start to think one thing,

you realize you've probably got it all wrong.

Today, celebrations are in order. I received my first blogging award nomination from Hellooooooo Gorgeous!

It's funny because when I first heard of blogging awards I thought, "Cool...that person must have a ton of readers and how in the heck did they win that award??" I quickly realized that in this friendly blogosphere, we're allowed to nominate and bestow upon each other our own awards. The coveted awards however, are those given by the Blogger's Choice Awards with categories such as best humor blog, best food blog, etc. Someday, someday...

Anywho, just as I was reminding myself that I need to write what comes to me and not censor it because the reader might not enjoy it or it shows a weakness of mine, I get this beautiful surprise.

So on to following the rules (I guess this means you win the award if you follow the rules??).

1. Post the logo on el blogo.

2. Add a link to the person who awarded you.

3. Nominate at least seven other blogs.

4. Add links to those blogs on your blog.

5. Leave a message for your nominee on their blog.

Gracias Gorgeous! Even if we are writing these blogs for ourselves, it's always nice to know someone else is interested in listening.

And my nominations go to...

1. Magda because she's so honest, heartfelt and a great writer.

2. Kayla for her newly renovated blog that has some awesome work, office and interpersonal tips we could probably all brush up on now and again.

3. Heather who also shares my love for running and is impressively persistent with those posts.

4. Joy the baker because her food always looks so good that somehow I end up with all the ingredients to her most recent recipe in my shopping basket and it's all yummy from there. Take tonight for example...more to come on that.

5. Laura because somehow in the midst of running a marathon every weekend or so and a crazy busy job, she manages to post these in depth recaps of her races or her newest raw vegan diet that are pretty intriguing. Not saying I'm going raw vegan anytime soon, however...

6. Martini because even after someone ratted her very real, and oh so humorous blog out to her at the time sorta bf, she managed to erase it, get back up, be honest with the man and start a new blog that is almost equally hilarious.

7. Margarita because her persistence to become healthy for herself is overwhelmingly inspiring and impressive.

8. Chrissy because she's doing an awesome job as a single mama and proving to women that while sometimes we'd like to raise a kid with the father, it's not impossible to go it solo and be successful to boot.

9. And Hope, I don't care that you were already nominated. I double nominate you. Your blog is so real, well written and straight from the heart, it's like poetry. Thanks for sharing with us.
