Two Posts in One Day?

Yes, a second post in just a few moments!

I have lovely news, my first follower, Penniless Parenting has offered me an award, apparently I make her smile! That makes me incredibly happy-enough so to nominate me for the Sunshine Award!

I hate to copy her words in any way, but doesn't that flower and image as a whole make you just SMILE? It is still bleak and wintery in Minnesota and that is just a pep I have needed!

So, apparently, it is now my task to nominate 12 other bloggers, who, to accept the nomination must post the flower in their sidebar or a post, and nominate 12 others! Than just link back to the person who nominated you.

I absolutely love this concept!

So, here is my list:

My Mommy's Place This is a lovely blog who writes in photos and haikus, very cute and lighthearted.
Life After The Fire This blog is absolutely inspirational to me. She is actually the woman who first got me even reading blogs. Just over a year ago, while in her third trimester of pregnancy, she lost her home and nearly everything she had in a house fire. This was than followed by being diagnosed with Bell's Palsey. She has really worked hard to keep a semblance of normalcy and even at times some humor in her life. She is simply amazing.
Under $1000 Per Month Emily works hard to keep her life expenses down, and for it takes a TON of flak for her decisions, yet stands fast. She is able to at times take often harsh words from others and help her family's life improve with them.
Penniless Parenting Ah, is it so wrong to nominate she who nominated me? I think not! I love her ideas and suggestions she has helped bring to our lives.
You Paid More Than Me Her title is so cute and witty! You Paid More Than Me is a blog of interior decorating-on the cheap.
The Happy (Atheist) Homemaker Again, a witty title! I love this blog, she is humorous, honest and frugal. Also, being of an alternative faith, I absolutely love that she brings that forth instead of trying to hide it.
Crystal Clear Reading I love Crystal's book blog. As you will likely find out over time, I love to read. It is imperative in my life. Crystal reviews books and often gives some away!
Better Than BoogersIn parenting, there is nothing better than to live life with humor. Especially when you have a toddler and a young child. This woman lives by that philosophy and blogs about her sons' untintentional humours!
Baby CheapSkate I didn't want to do a "bigger blog" but really, I used this website constantly, especially when our daughter was on formula. She always lists the best deals as well as parent reviews.
Clever, Crafty, Cheap She does not post often, but when she does, I find myself smiling with her ideas.
The DIY Showoff I love her! She features inexpensive ways to redo things in your home.
Claiming Our Space She also DIY and refinishes items to make her home more comfortable for her.

That's it! I strongly encourage you to check each of these bloggers just may find something you like too!
