Not bad for a fat girl

Blog of the Year


Oh I am tickled pink! The wonderfully talented Karen Mesa of Bookmarks by Karen Mesa has awarded me with a Blog of the Year award. I am beyond flattered by this kindness. Do stop by her literary themed blog soon, as there’s a little one on the way and Karen’s blogging time is likely to be diminished by this little bundle.

The rules for Blog of the Year 2013 Award are:

  1. Select the blog(s) you think deserve the Blog Of The Year 2013 Award.
  2. Write a blog post and tell us about the blog(s) you have chosen- there are no minimum or maximum number of blogs required- and ‘present’ the blog(s) with their award.
  3. Let the blog(s) that you have chosen know that you have given them this award and share the instructions with them- (please don’t alter the instructions or the badges!)
  4. Stop by and say hello to the originator of the Blog Of The Year 2013 Award via this link: http://thethoughtpalette.co.uk/blog-awards-2-/blog-of-the-year-2013-award/
  5. Recipients can now join the Blog Of The Year Award Facebook Page. Click the link here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/BlogoftheYear and share your blog posts with  an even wider audience.
  6. And as a winner of the award- please add a link back to the blog that presented you with this award (see above)-and then proudly display the award on your blog- and start collecting stars!

This is difficult. There are so many that I love, but I know a lot of you don’t do awards, and that’s ok too. Here are a few favorites you should visit when you have a chance:

The Lovely Photog: LeSha is a student, mom, wife, and photographer. She has a beautiful perspective on life, behind the lens and in front of it.

Reinvention of Mama: Mama is a poet and fiction writer, as well as mom to sweet young twin girls. She works out a lot of things through her blog, which is very real, and heartfelt.

My Year of Sweat: Nancy has been an incredible inspiration to me. She is kind and encouraging and has a work ethic I can only dream of someday imitating.

I'm a middle aged woman doing the things that middle aged women do and trying not to beat myself up. I'm living the life I choose with the man I love, the grown up son who impresses me all the time, and the most adorable pup ever rescued from the euthanasia list. We live in the heat of the Southwest, where I regularly sweat through my Lane Bryant bras.
