Blogger Choice Awards

Have you seen the Blogger Choice Awards? Have you been nominated? Do you want to nominate your favorite blog?

These web awards have fun categories such as Best Geek Blog, Hottest Mommy Blogger, Most Obnoxious Blogger, Worst Blog of All Time, Freakiest Blogger, Hottest Daddy Blogger, Best Celebrity Blogger and many other great categories. If you're nominated, you can grab cool little "badges" to put on your site letting the world wide web know of your nomination and to go vote. Go on, grab that badge and stand tall! If you have been nominated, let me know because I want to go take a look and gather all my facts before making my votes.

I have yet to be nominated, but if you feel I fit into one of the many categories of the Blogger Choice Awards, then please (I'm begging you *wink* ) go nominate this blog. Even if you don't like it, there's categories for that too.

Nominations and voting take place now through 11:59pm on May 22 and the winners will be announced at PostieCon. If you're going to PostieCon, then by all means get the word out for people to vote for your blog so you can accept your award in person! How neat would that be?

Don't let your favorite (or your least favorite) blogs miss out on winning these great awards because you didn't go nominate and vote for them, so do it now!

R.M.S Titanic

95 years ago today, the R.M.S Titanic sank. The passenger list has been put online here, free for a limited time.

Shipwrecks have always interested me. The "what-ifs" are so huge. What if the Titanic had narrowly missed that iceberg? Would all those people have been spared their lives?

According to this site the last witness to the sinking of the Titanic died in 2006. She was 5 years old when the ship sank. I can only imagine the horror that little girl went through. I hate to imagine what my 5 year old would have to go through if something like that happened.

Photo Hunters

The theme this week is Hobbies. Two of my hobbies (flowers & photography):

Oh, these aren't my tulips, but I did take the picture. Hopefully by next year, I will have tulips looking like that. :)

I'm Beat

I just spent the last two hours outside pulling the weeds next to the driveway. They're "vine-y" little suckers but luckily have a shallow root system. It takes a while, but (I was going to say it's not back-breaking work, but my back is killing me. lol) they're not too hard to get out. I still have probably two more hours to get it all done.

There was also a branch that had come off our tree laying beside the driveway. It's been there since our first big windstorm many months ago. I finally got out the saw and sawed it into about twenty pieces. Go me!

Now though, I'm relaxing. I'm weak. My legs feel like Jell-O and I can hardly type. Don't know what's up with that. I had the Princesses get me a lemonade, so now I have sugar in my system. Woohoo!!

Spring Fever

I'm getting antsy. I want to plant flowers. I want to go browse through the garden centers. I think we'll put in petunias along the front wall again. They always do well and add nice color. But, before we do that, we need to edge the grass.

I also want a bleeding heart (to go with my bleeding thumb LOL!) Seriously though, isn't this pretty? We're also going to get some tulip and daffodils in the fall for planting.

Shrimp is one of my favorite foods. You can
Have as much as you want because it is
Really low in fat and high in protein.
I like shrimp enchiladas and I may just have to
Make some tonight and
Plan for another shrimp dinner tomorrow!

You can get some great Shrimp Recipes online! Try one tonight! There's even a recipe for Shrimp Twice Baked Potatoes! I'm going to try that one real soon! Yummy!

The girls and I busted our butts today getting the house cleaned. It's really amazing how much better I feel when the house is cleaned up. If someone stopped by right now, I wouldn't be too embarrassed by the state of my house. ;)

I hate to admit it, but the table was clean so the last couple nights, we've actually sat down as a family and had dinner. Usually, we just plop down in front of the TV. The girls told us they enjoy the family dinners. We're going to keep it up!

Wordless Wednesday

I've had some questions about where this is. It's actually at Animal Kingdom in Walt Disney World. I was standing on the bridge looking towards Expedition Everest. :)

Working From Home Made Easier

When I had my at home business, it would have been nice to have a separate phone line. If GoSolo Virtual Office had been around then, I could have had my very own number!

GoSolo provides a toll-free number with automated answering and a messaging inbox that can be accessed either online or over the phone. Cool deal! So easy to stay connected!

Silly Girl

Youngest Princess and I are watching Dancing with the Stars and she says to me.... "You should dance with Daddy like that!"

Bahahaha, that would be a sight to see! Craig, by his own self-admission, has no rhythm LOL!
