I’m Totally Flabbergasted . . .

Imagine my surprise when I cruised on over to Chic Mama's to see what she had to say today and saw that she had won an award!  I was so very thrilled for her as she is definitely deserving.

Then imagine my surprise when I read the post and realized that she had forwarded the award to me along with five others.  Me?  Little ole me? The others I feel sure are deserving; but me??  I am humbled and honored.  And also a little panicky.

What to wear?  Should I go shopping?  What about the speech?  I don’t speak well in public.  What?  Oh yes, you can’t see or hear me.  So I can do this in my pj’s and a speech isn’t necessary.  Whew!  Thank goodness for small favors.

So thank you Chic Mama for being kind and gracious enough to bestow this award on me.  I am truly humbled and appreciative. 

As I have ventured carefully out into the blog world I have been pleasantly surprised by all the friendship, kindness, inspiration, and uplifting comments.  I truly value all those I’ve met and yet to meet.  So thank you all.

Now, according to the rules (as I understand them) I am to bestow this beautiful award to five deserving blogs.  This will be the tough part – because there are so many that should have this honor. 

My picks are . . . . (drum roll please)

ThatGirl at Forty Not Out – because I love to read her blogs & tweets.  And she is a shoe-fancier as am I.

Summer at Le Musings of Moi – if you haven’t checked out her Fashion Friday’s blog you are definitely missing out.

Jaci at Ravings of a Mad Housewife – she is too funny.

Texan Mama at Who Put Me In Charge of These People? – she’s in Texas and I’m from Texas; need I say more?

Everyone over at Mad Manic Mamas – love their “community” style blog about teenagers – living with them, dealing with them and trying not to kill them.

I wish I could have awarded more – and re-awarded Chic Mama because she is a lovely woman who is stronger than she thinks.

Thanks again – and thanks for letting me become part of such a wonderful community.
