It's a small world after all

With all the anonymity in the world of blogging it came as a surprise when I learned the author of a blog I recently started reading, as a child lived only a few miles from where my husband grew up, rode the very same school bus, and who's parents know my in-laws. These days she lives with her family next to the town my dad grew up in. (Go Truckers!)
It's been fun getting to know Esther (Mommy Diaries) these last few weeks. She even gave me a bloggy award today. Thanks Esther! (and because I was once a Cheesehead - Go Packers!)

Here are the rules for the award:
1. Put the logo on your blog
2. Link to the person you received your award from
3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs
4. Put links to those blogs on your site
5. Leave messages on the blogs you’ve nominated

I'd like to nominate these lovely ladies:

Lindsay at Our Lives in a Nutshell - I love opening up blogger and seeing that Lindsay has a new post up. They are always funny, witty, and many times exactly what I'm thinking, but don't know how to put in words. Oh, and she has a new kitty that looks an awful lot like ours.

Brittany at 4 Little Men and Girly Twins - I've been following Brittany's blog for well over a year. I know that when I go to her blog I will find something that makes me smile - whether it's pictures of her beautiful identical twin daugthers or a well written post on nutrition (a topic near and dear to my heart).

Kelli at Gohn Crazy - I think I stumbled onto Kelly's blog during International Babywearing Week and now I'm hooked. Check out her one of a kind template and you'll be going back for more too.

Jenn at Knee Deep In Munchkin Land - I have been reading Jenn's blog since my early blogging days. She has a heart for the Lord and her family that shine through in every post. Her family has an exciting couple of months ahead of them. I'm thankful for the opportunity to follow along.

JMom at Lots of Scotts - Another blog I've been reading since the beginning. JMom has triplets that are six months older than Sam. Without fail her wisdom reaches deep each time but hits a light note too.

MckMama at My Charming Kids - MckMama's the reason I even know what a blog is. We are In Real Life friends. Her miracle son, Stellan, is a living testamony of the power of prayer.

Jennisa at The Princess Diaries - An In Real Life friend of MckMama's, we've been blogging buddies since I started blogging. Her youngest is three weeks younger than Julia so it's been nice to have another friend who's parenting a two year old.


Ethan, Zach, and Emma's Mom November 22, 2008 at 9:27 PM're so sweet! Go Pack Go! (And the Truckers too!)

First of all congrats on the award! I did not know that you were a Wisconsinite. I totally got your "Truckers" cheer! Mine would be Go "Foxes"! (yep, somewhere in NE WI too.) Still WI now even though we care for the packers because they kept my husband employed for over two years (he did the renovation... the fireplace and other stone work that they do shows and interviews at Lambeau field... my husband did that! along with other stuff but that is the most recognizable).
Happy day.

Thanks for the award and the nice words! Sweet - I now have some material to write about this week! LOL.

Jenn @ Munchkin Land November 23, 2008 at 7:20 PM  

Thank you SO much for the sweet award! You've definitely humbled me... Hope you have a blessed Thanksgiving this week!
