Not bad for a fat girl

Blog of the Year Rounds Two and Three (UPDATE)


Blog of the Year Award 3 star jpegWoo Hoo! Twice in one week. I’m going to get a swelled head with all the kudos, but I’ll happily take them. I want to thank Darcy of yadadarcyyada for thinking I’m awesome enough to receive this award.

I received the same one just the other day and finally got around to posting it yesterday, so all the blog rules are on that post entitled, oddly enough, “Blog of the Year.”

The super fun thing about this award is that you can receive it up to six times! That’s what the colored stars are for. Pretty great, right?

Thanks, Darcy! And thanks to everyone who reads, likes, reblogs, and especially comments on the things I share on BulgingButtons. You make this blogging experience a total blast, and I thank you sincerely for that.

UPDATE: I woke up to the news that the fabulous LaSha at The Lovely Photog shot me back another star, so I’ll happily add it to the mix. I’m delighted, to say the least. Please check out her blog. She is very talented. He blog features photography, family life, and more. Many thanks.

I can’t believe that I’ve won three of the six stars in December alone. Maybe I’m silly, maybe I’m a geek, I’m sure I’m both, but I’m super excited about that. How cool would it be to get all six? Crazy, I know.

Here are some great blogs that deserve your time and visit, as well as their own Blog of the Year Awards:

Must be This Tall To Ride: This one is fairly new to me, but boy do I love it. Matt has a fresh writing style and doesn’t shy away from tough topics, especially his recent divorce. He’s also funny and real, and a pleasure to read.

Just Another F Bomb: Leslie writes about the challenges of living with Fibromyalgia. Her blog is insightful and informative but not whiny or preachy. She is fine writer and I’m glad I’ve found her blog.

The Goddess Weighs In: Cynthia’s blog is one of my favorites. She is large and in charge and isn’t about to take crap from anyone. She is also gracious, intelligent, and very helpful. She reviews products, shares her experiences, and makes me laugh. She was the inspiration behind the 47 for 47 Challenge, and the reason I work out (ok, three times so far) to a belly dancing DVD, of all things.

Vic Briggs: Vic is a writer who takes on lots of current events and also offers amazing poetry. Get comfy when you click the link, you’ll probably be reading for quite a while.

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.
