Wouldn’t It Be Nice…

The hilarious Jess at Oh, the Joys and the cool Nap Warden both surprised me with a Nice Matters Award. Thank you ladies! And yes I know…I’ve posted twice in one day. Crazy! I’m behind on some memes I’ve been tagged for so let’s get this show on the road.


Do you think this blog banner is early Victorian enough? Where are my lace doilies?! I need a cameo broach, stat!

Kidding, KIDDING! OK… I am nice. There is another blog button floating around for this same award depicting a practically nay-ked (as Miss A says) woman in black undies and a bra. I’m not really sure what that is all about, but I thought I’d use this button as my mother reads my blog. Besides, the UPS guy is already giving me suspicious looks because of the DVD packages I’ve been receiving with special attention to my blog name. I’m sure he’s wondering what kind of seedy operation I’m running under the guise of a mommy blog.

Now on to the meme business.

This award is for those bloggers who are nice people; good blog friends and those who inspire good feelings and inspiration. Also for those who are a positive influence on our blogging world.”

This was tough because most everyone I meet through blogging is definitely “nice,” but I wanted to pick some bloggers who had not already received this award. And some of you I thought of had already received this award. Hmmmpf.

I’d like to pass along some bloggy love to the following seven bloggers:

Nashvillian GingerSnaps, who gave a recent shout out to my hubby’s business.

Fabulous Mommy Fussypants, a homeschooling hottie from Nashville who is expecting baby #5. That’s right. I said FIVE. Dear God someone please hand me a fan.

Jen at Thirty One Style (from whom I won this cute monogrammed lunch tote.)

Mari at BookBelle, who is a busy teachin’ mama with two kids.

Nancy at Mom Ma’am Me, who is a fellow working mom to two little girls.

Liza at Liza’s Eyeview in Hawaii, who my mom also reads and who has pointed out some blogs for my mom to enjoy.

and Mrs. Flinger, who I’ve been reading worshiping from afar since I started blogging two years ago.

    Congrats on the award! I recently started reading Thirty One Style, too..and love it. That was a darn cute lunch tote you won.

  2. Liz says:

    There’s no need for, “Hmmmphf-ing!” – it’s the thought that counts – congratulations on a well-deserved bloggity award!

  3. Liza's Eyeview says:

    Congratulations – you are NICE, so you deserve the award.

    And thanks for giving it to me also. I love receiving these bloggy bling blings – makes me feel important and loved…. (yep, I need to feed my self- esteem once in a while 😉

    …and I too prefer this Victorian button over the practically nay-ked chick 😉

    From afar my ass! We’re tight! 😉 Muwha to you, Jamie. Thank you for thinking of my (enter lame excuse for not blogging here) self.
