And the award goes to...


Isn't that freakin awesome?!

Let me just tell you, this has been a banner week for me. Any newbie to the blogging world knows that when things start "picking up" so-to-speak, it's super exciting.

For starters, I now have...count them...25 followers. That's right...25! I also had a personal best of +40 site visits yesterday and today...

Big things are happening!

So big, in fact...that I got a couple of awards!

Here they are:

This awesome award is from my friend Julie at DutchebeingMe. THANK YOU, JULIE!!! Hope you'll all stop by her blog and give her a little comment love...

Next...this is from one of my new BFF's Lori at MommyFriend. (I'm taking it, Lori. That's all there is to it..[little inside humor...])
Soooooo, here's what I am supposed to do now...I am supposed to link to 12 other bloggers. But, I am choosing 9. I am going to try my darndest to pick bloggers that I didn't pick before so as to bring in some fresh talent...

*Pamela at 2MuchTestosterone. Cracks me up!
*Jessica at Adventures of a Wife and Mom. She's NEW!!! Go show her how wonderful this blogging community can be!!! =)
*The Crayon Wrangler at Coloring outside the lines. Always comments. Funny stuff. One of my regular blog stops...
*Mommy drinks because you cry One word. Hysterical.
*Stephanie at Smart Sassy Mom Met her through Ezine Articles and LOVE LOVE LOVE her!
*Mary at Mommyologist She's so funny and I just think she's so cool...
*Tickled Pink Twice Funny, yet serious when necessary, but always cool!
*My niece Lindsey at Life as I know it She's new to the blogosphere...can we go show her some love?
*Kat at Todays Cliche She is very possibly the sister that I was separated at birth from...such an awesome person and I am her biggesst fan!!!!!

There you have it...Now, please go show these ladies some attention and tell them MandyP from Random Thoughts sent you!! =)
