Thank You Mother Hen!

What a great start to my day!!

I woke up a little early, so I broke my rules about not getting on the computer until after my morning routine was done...oops! But look what I found when I logged on!

Jenny aka Mother Hen @ Ship Full of Pirates had given me this award! Aww, I'm so honored. Thank you Jenny!! You should definately go take a look at her blog if you have a large family!

I started this blog for myself and figured that probably no one but family or close friends would read it. When I started getting comments from people I don't know, I thought "Wow, someone actually IS reading it."

So I decided to put on a counter on Sunday. Every time I see the counter going up I'm seriously shocked. It's just so much more fun to write these posts when I know someone might actually READ what I'm writing...Ok, so maybe SKIM is a better word, but that's ok too!!

So I'm really excited for someone to think enough of these ramblings to give me an award.

Here are the instructions that came with the award:
This is what you need to do…Thank the person who gave the award to you, post the award on your blog or on a post, nominate up to 10 blogs which show great creativity, link to the people you chose on your post, and comment on their blogs to tell them about the award!

The ten people I'm passing the award to are:
An Unfinished Mom
Kristen@ Frugal Antics of a Harried Housewife
Kim@ Just a Southern Girl
Amy@ Life With the O'Shields In South Carolina
Miriam @ My Country Cupboard
FishMom @ Life As Mom (had to nominate her JUST for those cakes!!)
Phoebe @ Cents To Get Debt Free
Karen @ Homespun Simplicity
Jamie @ I Am A Money Magnet
Shannon @ The Grocery Weekly (because of her I am saving more $$)

Congratulations ladies. Now you pass on the awards to those that you think are most deserving.
