Oh Yes, There Is Another Shawn

A few months ago, I got a comment from a Shawn.

What? I thought. Another Shawn? A woman? Wow!

So, I went on over to her blog to check it out.

Of course, she is gorgeous, talented, has a hunky hubby and a great family AND did I mention that she is a dog lover? Well, yes she is! As well as many other animals..... She also has some great BFF's that she spends time with sometimes-----and yes, I am jealous, yes I am.

So, I immediately started following her blog-----and a few weeks ago, I got another comment telling me that she had an award for me.

"For lil' ole me? (this said in a southern accent, of course----I am constantly going in and out of dialects.) Wal, I am shu-ah flattahed." (And no, Shawn, this is not because someone thought that you sounded like you had an accent----trust me----you didn't!)

Here it is!
(although I don't really understand what that means in small lettering...hmm)

And that's not all!! No, this amazing woman is doing Swaps! I, of course, participated in a swap before and got some lovely things----of which I forgot to post about, but I PROMISE that I would NEVER do that again! So----if you are interested in this fun swap----or just want to go by and read some of her fantastic posts. Go on over to Seriously and check it out!

I have found a lot of great gals in this blogging world.....its like opening up a whole new world of pen pals, right?

As for the award-----I have chosen to share this award with some other amazing bloggers-----I believe that the rule is 15, but since I am brain dead these days, I am going to go with 10. Sorry if you have already gotten it, but you are all so creative and super-duper bloggers, that its fine to get it again, right?

1. Melissa at Thats What She Said----its her birthday tomorrow and she thinks that she looks old---but she runs and bikes and does marathons---(and I'm jealous) and is gorgeous----Just sayin, M-Cat.

2. Mignon at This Little Miggy Stayed Home---she just moved into the coolest historic house, and has a cute family, does amazing crafts for her Etsy site and I love her taste in furniture!

3. Anna See at An Inch of Gray----she is quite funny, with some intimate details as well as great ideas for crafting, decorating, and just getting through your life!

4. Carma from Carma Sez----what a fun person, with her cheeseballs, her juggling and having exciting activities with her son!

5. Jennie at Beehive and Birds Nest----she was one of the first bloggers that I came across---from someone elses site. She is clever, beautiful, a great mother, and she lives in Texas----with her adorable children!

6. Dapper Kid at....well, Dapper Kid! He is a young fashionista that has a heart of gold, and loves sunsets and romantic evenings, and his writing is fantastic----and he lives in London, to boot!

7. Lynne at Lynne's Somewhat Invented Life----she was one of the early bloggers that I adored---with her wit and recipes and fun insight into the world----we even had lunch together once and she is delightful!

8. Christy at A Lil Welsh Rarebit---she has a baby with the most enormous blue eyes---so adorable---is working on doing her first triathalon----more than I could do, for sure, and seems like the sweetest person!

9. Mrs. Organic at Positively Organic---she is wanting to change the name of her blog and is willing to give away a quilt or two to some lucky person that comes up with a better than best name! (she didn't like mine---I Read Because I Dream, I Cook Because I Taste, I Sew Because I Feel Naked---go figure)

10. Cadance at Our Life In Perfect Cadence----she is truly gorgeous---inside and out! She just came to a gig of mine last week, (of which I am going to tell all about next week!) and she and her hunky hubby are the coolest ever. I am looking forward to when we can get together again---this time, hopefully, to spend some more time together!

There you have it, my lovelies. Go visit and see why I am STILL reading these blogs!

Can I say that I love the music you have on your playlist. One night I just let it play me to sleep on the couch (shhhhh, don't tell hubby).
