My sidebar has new bling

I enjoy blogging. I started doing it to help quiet the activity in my brain, to figure out my feelings about being a wife and mother. I didn't expect to meet other bloggers, to have a daily dialogue with some of them, and to look forward to reading about what was going on in their lives. I've cracked up over some posts, and felt sad over others. The best thing has been people telling me I motivate them to work out, when they motivate me just as much.

So I was given a few blog awards these past few days, and here they are!

Alicia at One Chic Mommy gave me the Lovely Blog Award for a second time! Alicia is awesome, she's taking part of our Get Active Challenge, posts healthy recipes, and photos of her chic kids. Then Ronnie at But Such is Life gave it to me as well! Ronnie is also a great blogger, she's Getting Active, writes about her family and food, and makes you think about politics and religion.

Another blog friend is Momma Such, at Raising My Four Sons. She's blogs about the antics her crew gets into, I still can't get over her recent post about finding a mouse in the leg of her jeans....well she just gave me the Best Blog Award. To accept, you need to post who gave it to you, along with their blog link. Then pass it to 15 blogs you've recently discovered that you think are great. Well, here goes:

Sheila at Living Smart
Amanda at Lunchbox Limbo
Girl with flour in her hair at Peeling an Orange with a Screwdriver

Now this last one is from Amanda at Lunchbox Limbo...she comes up with the coolest ideas for kids lunches, you need to check out her photos, and her ideas on how to go organic. After accepting it, you pass it to six others,

Alicia at One Chic Mommy

Momma Such at Raising My Four Sons

Susan at Fobes Family Formula

Wow! This has been a busy week. (I am a little behind on blogging because I have been messing around with the appearance of my site-still not satisfied...) Thanks so much for the tribute. This really means a lot to me!

Hi Molly,
Congrats on all of your much deserved awards!!!

Janie B said...

Thank you, Molly! I appreciate the award. I already have that one, but it was really sweet of you to pass it on to me.

I started blogging just for myself, too. Well, and as a way to communicate with my two daughters. But, the friends I've made have made blogging so much more. What a wonderful feeling!
