They like me, they really, really like me....

The Bus Driver over at Tales from the School Bus bestowed upon me this lovely Lemonade Award yesterday! Too sweet. Obviously, it was before the post from hell below!

Here are the rules:
1. You must link back to the person you received the award from.

2. You have to nominate 10 bloggers who are deserving of this award!

OK, this is NOT going to be easy, as there are just way too many blogs I read on a regular basis. But, I'll give it the old college try....

1. My dear friend, Smileygirl at Live Happy. She's the reason I started blogging in the first place. She's my cousin's best friend, and I love her to death. If you've never clicked over to her blog, do yourself a favor and check it out. She makes me pee my pants on a weekly basis!

2. My bloggy buddy, Dana, at Miles to Go Before I Sleep. Dana was the first (well, ok, ONLY so far) bloggy friend that I've met in person. I loved her even more once I met her! (I have to put a 2b here, and list her fiance, JD, at Spending Time Under Trees. You should really check out his newest feature, TMI Thursday. Brace yourself...)

3. C over at Midwestern Mama with a New York Heart. Besides her great posts, she puts the most hilarious pictures/buttons/cartoons on the sidebar of her blog. If you're a regular reader, you've seen many that I've "stolen" from her blog.

4. Persnickety Ticker. The first time I ever checked out her blog, I was instantly enamored by her. She was the first person I read who had a potty mouth equal to my own! She's a hoot!

5. Clippy over at Tales from Clippy Mat. She is originally from England, now lives in Canada, and has one of the best senses of humor! Her quick wit keeps me in stitches.

6. JLo over at Almost Famous. She's a fellow educator, so she can sympathize with my Hell-Hole stories. She's also very funny. She has the most adorable little girls. She has a generous heart, too! (She just sent my babies mittens, God bless her!) And she's the reason I found...

7. Jason at The Jason Show. Just go check it out. You won't be sorry!

8. Suz at Day by Day...My Life as a Busy Bee. She tells the funniest stories, about her kids, her dogs, her husband, just life in general. Plus, she's got a KILLER new bathroom that you must check out :)

9. The Girl Next Door at Next Door 2 My Ex. First of all, I was instantly drawn to check out her blog for the Ex Factor (tee hee). I was just in awe of her living situation, and I've been hooked ever since.

10. That Girl. I've just recently discovered her blog, and I LOVE her!! I'm going to vicariously re-live my 20s through her and her blog. Plus, she says 'fuck' almost as much as I do!

I know that's 10, but I have an "honorable mention" for Bon Don at Who Throws a Cupcake? Honestly. I actually was going to list a bunch of honorable mentions, but then I realized I would be listing my entire blog list, and that's just silly! Just look over to the right, it's already there! So, check out all my Bloggy Friends, and their entertaining blogs!
