winner, winner chicken dinner

so, i gotta give a few shouts out to the peeps who've been pimping my blog lately. i recently received a blog award from cute jordan at mean mommy academy.







she gave me this award:



i feel so unworthy. my blog is not that lovely. quite plain, really. and so i am quite flattered. i now get to nominate 15 people for this same honor. and so, without further ado, i nominate the following:



  1. aMAYzing: Wonder Woman taking on the world

  2. An Eagle's View

  3. The Misplaced Americans

  4. Trying to Stay Calm!

  5. if i were really skinny...

  6. Talkaholics Anonymous

  7. Little Grumpy Angel

  8. Mere Motherhood

  9. Fairly Fishy

  10. Smushed Goldfish in the Cracks of Life

  11. Life is to be enjoyed!

  12. ...Of Toddlers And Teens

  13. Come. Sit. Enjoy.

  14. Everyday Miracles

  15. The Frosted Cupcake

these are all awesome blogs. check 'em out. pass on the award if you like. if not, be sure to brag about it.

and then, cute trina had this giveaway:


and i won! so trina brought it to me this week. and i love it! and my house smells all yummy.

have you used scentsy stuff? i love it. and my fave scent is *flirtatious*. i recommend a visit to her scentsy site, and then order something from trina.

last item,

this is a tradition that i loved and looked forward to growing up. on the morning of every day of the last week of school, my mom would hide a number for each of us kids to find. and then, when we got home from school that day, we would have a surprise waiting for us: candy or some special treat. it was magical.

monday begins our last week of school- and the children can't wait. so, since there are only four more days of school after today (thursday is the last day), monday morning i will hide #4s for my kiddos to find. and then when oldest daughter gets home, they can claim their prize. it's magic. magic, i tell you.

happy friday to you all!

Thank you so much for the award! I'm not worthy! I'm not worthy! But sure am glad you thought of me!!

Elizabeth said...

Love you cute new scentsy warmer :) Thanks for the idea about the last week of school- we may just try that one out next week!!!

Chris said...

I don't get it dear. I post and it takes me all day to get three comments. You post and within minutes you have three comments, and more on the way, I'm sure.

What gives?

Cynthia said...

Scentsy stuff is so fun. I love mine. Unfortunately, my hubs doesn't.

wonder woman said...

Well, thank you, TruBlu! I do think you have a loverly blog.

Love the countdown idea. You must have had a fantastic childhood -- there are so many traditions you pass on to your own children! Here's an idea for a post if you're even in a slump: your family traditions. Then I'll bookmark the page and have a cheat sheet for my own family!! Ü

That is a really cute prize. I love it. Congrats on your prize and your award. You are so deserving.

Nathan said...

It was cool enough to be mentioned in one of your posts, but even cooler to get an award. I don't even care that it has flowers on it. I guess it helps that I've publicly admitted liking the Barbie movies.

Thanks!

Courtney said...

I just discovered scentsy as well!! I love flirtatious but you have got to try Beach!

Congratulations on the award and winning the giveaway. So pretty. I must check out Scentsy. I am rather late to this awesome party.

And Gosh! Thank you for sharing the award with me. I am most sincerely honored.

Shannon said...

Thanks! That was so nice of you. Brightened my day.

Mrs. Fish said...

thanks for the blog love. i am honored. i totally wasn't expecting this award, so i don't have an acceptance speech prepared. so i guess i'd just like to thank the lovely couple who were the first to make my family feel welcome in a new ward one sunday a few years back (umm...that's you, in case you were wondering).

Randibee said...

Thank you for the award! Especialy since I have had a blog for, oh, ummm, all of a week! And your blog is the best! And our mom is the best!

Merrianne said...
