The Stiletto Award

You have got to be kidding me!!!

My girl Jessica at Adventures of a Wife and Mom awarded me this sweet Stiletto Award. How awesome is THAT? I hardly think I qualify, but if she insists, who am I to argue??

First, to understand, let us understand the Stiletto… some words that describe it…

Classy – Strong -Exotic – Demure – Extreme – Ultra – Sexy - Bold – Funky

“Walking in extremely high heels is not something that the average woman (or man)

will need to do in their everyday life.However, there are times when this skill may be required.”

I want to salute the women who balance life, family & relationships with style & class! Those women who share their experiences with us…who encourage us, inspire us, teach us, make us laugh and basically keep us going! You know who they are! While you read this blog, your family is looking at you wondering what the heck you are laughing about so hard…or why the tissue is necessary for internet browsing. It’s the one that the kids are excited about because a new post means a new craft project or family outing. The one that inspires you to be a better mom, friend, person in general. The one that reminds you that we are all “in this life together” and you’re not the only one going through the hard stuff. The one that you secretly wish your blog was like…

“Heels this high are not meant for clubbing or walking long distances in. They are mainly used for getting from the living room to the bedroom, from the car to the restaurant, or for a short stroll along the catwalk.”

If you’ve received this award, someone out there thinks you deserve it! Be proud! Display the badge with honor! You earned it…after all it means that you brought something special to at least one other person, and really, isn’t that what life’s all about?


This blog is meant to be shared, to be given out, to be bestowed upon any and ALL women who exemplify what the stiletto represents. If you’ve received this award, here’s what you do:

1. Display your Stiletto Badge of Honor on your sidebar! Wear it with pride…
2. BRAG ABOUT IT! -write a post about your award. Include the link to this page so everyone will understand what it’s all about!
3. SAY THANKS! - include a link to the friend who nominated you for the award.
4. SHARE THE LOVE! -nominate 5-10 blogs that you feel deserve the award. Include links to hem in your post -and- leave them a comment to let them know they are nominated.
5. DO WHAT YOU DO! -keep at it. Keep inspiring and encouraging and sharing your life! We love it and we thank you!

Here are my nominations...

*Jessica, I refuse to volley this award back and forth with you, but you DO deserve this again!!!! I'm lucky enough to have you both as a bloggy friend and as an IRL friend!

*Kat at Today's Cliche. She. Is. The. Bomb. (Do people even use that word anymore?) She makes me laugh and she is such a fabulous woman who balances it all; work, family, and blogging. Love ya girl!

*My girl Lori at Mommy Friend is nothing short of a genius. I LOVE her and her blog and am often commenting many times in a day. She's a regular at these awards ceremonies...

*Pamela at 2 Much Testosterone. Friggin hilarious. I ALWAYS laugh when I read her stuff. My fave lines from her "about me" section..."If you're offended by bad language then exit stage right. I have the mouth of a pirate and will mask it for no one."

*Dalia at Generation X Mom. I love to find blogs that make me laugh and ones that make me think. Dalia's blog is good for working me all up in a lather about the crap we have to think about in today's world when it comes to our kids. She's insightful and poignant.

*Jen at Redhead Ranting. Good gosh she's so freakin funny. Even when she's just whipping out a quick post, she has me laughing. Crimany-- to be able to write like that!

and...last, but DEFINITELY not least...

*Natalie at Mommy on Fire. *sigh* Where do I start??? I think she's terrific. She's so doggone real! Her posts either have me laughing or crying...sometimes BOTH at the SAME TIME! She's for sure been dropped in my lap as a gift...not sure what I did to deserve it, but I'm not gonna hassle it! your blog these ladies a visit!!!
