I'd like to thank the academy

I won my first blog award!!! I love blogging. Random strangers give you AWARDS because they like what you do. It's made me think how much better I perform when my efforts are applauded.  And how often I should praise the efforts of my children and my husband-- people need to know they are appreciated, right? (Speaking of appreciating my hubs, he found out today that he got a huge raise that we weren't it's celebrations all around!!)
I'd like to thank The Foodie Mommy for this award. Check out her blog. It's a blog about cooking healthy foods with fresh ingredients. She tells you things like how to make brownies with spinach. That's right. Brownies. with Spinach! Crazy! In addition to recipes she has tips and videos and giveaways. Go check it out!
As a part of accepting this award, I'm supposed to come up with my blogging philosophy in 5 words.
I have to take you through my brainstorming though process on this one:
  1. My life in blog form. (I think that's actually really catchy. Unfortunately doesn't exactly fit this blog. Steal it if you like.)
  2. I don't have a blogosophy. (But I do like to make up new words.)
  3. Read to your baby daily. (I think this is one of my life philosophies. I think our education system would be a million billion times better if every parent heeded this advice.)
  4. I like sharing great books. (Sounds dumb but does accurately describe my blog in 5 words.)
I'm a newbie blogger so I haven't thought about things like philosophies but thanks for helping me work on that. I guess I pick #3.

As part of this award (and this is the fun part), I get to give 10 other bloggers A Blog With Substance Award.
Thanks you to all of the bloggers who have welcomed me into your blogging community!!


  1. OMG I just read your comment over at my blog. Thanks so much! I wish I could give it back to you because your blog definitely has substance! You'll be my secret #1 on the list. I'll post it up tomorrow. I'm starting to love the month of July lol

    Oh, and if you don't mind, may I ask you about reading stuff later on (for my little girl)?? It's 2am here so... I gotta hit the sack or my hubz will kill me.

    My Tots Exactly!

  2. Yay! Congrats to you... and thanks for voting for my blog! :)

  3. Thanks so much for mentioning me! It's my first blog award! Congrats on all your good news! :)

  4. Thank you so much for mentioning my blog! I absolutely agree to reading to your baby everyday, I've done it with my daughter and I can't believe how much she has learned from it while at the same time just hanging out with mom!

  5. Congratulations on your award and on an awesome start to a great blog!
    Thanks for passing this award on to me. Made my day!

  6. Thank you so much for including my blog! I am just getting caught up on all my emails and was so thrilled to see your comment on my blog!! Yes, I did do a happy dance. :)

  7. Congrats! This is such a cute blog!

  8. So I am finally home from my Baby Tour 2010 AND I have no more family staying at my house so it is time for me to figure out what I am supposed to do with the award. Do I need to do the same thing you did (with the blog philosophy and awarding 10 people)? Or do I just graciously take the award and say thank you? :)

  9. great blog
