So I won an Award.

It is kind of cool.  Its not like a Pulitzer or anything.  It is an award from one Blogger to Another.
A lot of people have awards out there….
Sometime I feel like awards are passed just from blogger to blogger – just to make someone “like” you.
I already like her – so I know its genuine. SmileSCORE!


From Cookie's Chronicles

ps. I totally made the Award Picture Bigger. SmileBecause I’m so proud of it!

So – I thought I would share some of my Favorite September Posts:

Here goes…

The first blog I’m loving this September is by Meredith @ My Journey to Authenticity.  This post HERE is and example of why I love her.  She takes 10 reasons she wishes this week was over and… well – you’ll just have to head over and read. She has a great attitude. And I love it!

Next up is my friend in real life’s blog.  She had this amazing big blog – and then stepped away.  Took some time. Readjusted her priorities and restarted a new blog, Our Little Pond. AWESOMENESS.  She is so humble – and honestly…. my sounding board for so many things.  Want an example – read HERE and I guarantee you will fall totally in love with her. But she really shows her (and her husband’s) sense of humor HERE. And trust me, they would totally do this.

I also have this bloggy friend Jen @ Its all about me.  I love her and her blog. I wasn’t going to link this post HERE because it almost seems like self promotion.  She wrote it to one of my link ups.  But the thing is… she is a survivor.  And she blogs from her heart. And she inspires me … to deal with my circumstances, feel blessed in life, and remember that it is ok to sometimes still be angry (even at people.) So read her blog – or at least this post, because it is so heartfelt.

You know the friend you have that you aren’t supposed to have?  You know… the one who says all the things you wish you were cool enough to say. Well, that is Holly @ Not a Perfect Mom’s Blog.  She is so hilarious.  In that “I can’t believe you just said that.” sort of way.  And I wish we were real friends. Because she would make me cooler just by sitting next to me. See the post that almost made me pee my pants HERE.  Remember – I warned you – reading her stuff is my dirty little pleasure.

And finally – one of my newest blog obsessions has been over at Rock the Mini.  I love her post about living and blogging found HERE, but really I love the way she continues to blog even when it is something short and silly.  I need to start doing more of that and less of the huge blog posts.  Check out her funny attitude HERE.

There. 5 + great posts to read from the last month.  I also LOVE these bloggeresses… so if you are in the mood:
Sara @ Domestically Challenged
Awn @ Imperfection Personified
Jennie @ Fond of Blond
Helene @ I'm Living Proof that God Has a Sense of Humor
MaMe Musings
Have a great time reading.  Love this – and… by the way – I totally LOVE Cookie’s Chronicles.

I popped over to see what's new with one of my favorite blogs and was surprised to see MaMe Musings! Thanks so much! I totally liked you already :-)

Off to read some of your recommendations...

Boy lady I don't know what to say!

You get an award and you go and highlight mine and other blogs!

I'd bow but my big fat head might get injured *giggle*

Seriously, what a lovely thing to do and your words mean more than you know...

Yeah, so you pretty much rock for giving me a shout-out! Thanks friend!
Personally, I love Fall because of all the reasons you stated. Except for all the kid stuff. And the husband stuff. But I'm pretty sure I'll love Fall all the more someday when those things are happening to me!

I keep telling myself I'm going to trim the list of blogs I subscribe to (200--is that bad?!), but then Sue does something like link to your blog and the numbers go up again. As far as problems go, I have to say this is a pretty decent one. ;)

Thanks so much, Kristen.
I have loved getting to know YOUR heart, all the way around.
