I got an award!!

And it wasn't for Horrible Mother of the Year!!! Michelle at The Adventures of Supermom sent me this:

Isn't she sweet?! Definitely check her blog out! She has such a fun sense of humor.....she has 4 kids too so a sense of humor is a definite must!! As a mother, I can relate to a lot of the things she writes about! Thank you, Michelle, for thinking of me!

Okay, so apparently, what I'm supposed to do with this award is pass on the love....here's the jist:

The rules of the award are:
1. The winner can put the logo on his/her blog.
2. Link the person you received your award from.
3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
4. Put links of those blogs on yours.
5. Leave a message on the blogs of the people you’ve nominated

Here are a few of my favorite blogs and I thought I'd write a little about each one, with the hopes that you'll check them out and find them as wonderful as I do.

The Mommy Machine ... Like me, she has twins and she has an amazing sense of humor. She also ends every post with what she's made for dinner that night (and I've gotten some great ideas!) Oh and she posts the most fabulous pics of Alaska, where she lives.

Triplets Plus One = Four times the Fun ...She has triplets and a singleton. Her posts are amazingly hilarious and I've learned so much from her about organic foods, supplements, probiotics and other healthy things for my children. She is the most awesome advocate for her kids! And she was a major lifeline for me when Cole and Bella were babies when she kept encouraging me along with "it will get easier, I promise". We even went through all our pregnancies together!

Joy's Autism Blog ... Joy has 4 kids, including a son with autism. She is an amazing advocate for her children and her love for them comes through in every post she writes. She is always so encouraging and, of course, has a great sense of humor! She's also a regular commenter on my blog and it warms my heart to see a comment from her!

Da'Gorgeouses ... Her twins were born 16 weeks early and are little miracles in every sense of the word. She is so in love with motherhood and truly appreciates the blessings that she's been given. Reading her posts inspire me to be a better mother! She and I went through our trying to conceive journey together and she was such a wonderful person to share that experience with...the highs, the lows and the in between stuff.

The Journey ... She has 3 kids, including a set of twins, and she's pregnant with her 4th child. I love reading her posts because she chats about various things, like her kids, the Olympics, memories from the past. She always writes so eloquently, esp when it comes to her children. She wrote letters to her twin boys for their 1st birthday that left me in tears!

Bringing Up Twins ... She has twins who are 1 month older than Garrett and Landon so I can always relate to her posts. And talk about someone who expresses their thoughts so well...her writing is amazing! She posted most of her twins' birth story on her blog and I was on the edge of my seat the whole time...it was like watching an episode of "Babies: Special Delivery".

Chatabox ... She's a 19-yr old girl who writes about everything under the sun. What I like about her blog is that she posts about random things, which always make me stop and think about other stuff (besides my kids!). She's in the process of moving to Australia and she writes about that too and I love reading those posts because I feel like I can live vicariously through her (I doubt I'll ever be able to visit Australia in my lifetime so I'll have to see it through her eyes!)

I'm adding an 8th one in here because I just stumbled upon this blog and I absolutely love it (plus I had a hard time just picking 7 of my favorites because there are so many)

Little Ruggers ... Another twin mom yet again (we're all over the place...don't drink the water in your town if you don't want twins!) Her twins are a few months younger than Garrett and Landon so reading her posts takes me back to that fun stage where they were learning how to crawl and find their toes! She wrote a letter from her kids to her husband for his 34th birthday that had me laughing out loud. And as required with all mothers of multiples, she has a fantastic sense of humor!

Okay, so there's my list...short and sweet (well, sorta...). Check all those blogs out...I promise you will be hooked, just like I am!

I can never seem to write short posts. But then again I'm with my 4 kids all day and sometimes this is my only way to hear my own thoughts!

Hello Helene! You know I love you and thank you so much for nominating me! Now I must continue my "vacation". (We should figure out a way to ditch the eight kids and take a REAL vacation!)
