You mean I won?

My sweet, funny friend, Carolyn, (who apparently stalks my blog) gave me this very nice blog award. So, now I have to find some people who I feel deserve this award. Hmmmm . . .

First,Jill, because not only is she my favorite sister, she makes me laugh. And she's nice to me. And she makes me yummy treats. And she has the cutest babies I know.

Second, Kristi, cause she's just awesome. She's funny and she writes blog posts that are enjoyable to read. She is either making me laugh or making me think. And, she encourages me in my insane running goals.

Third, Melinda. She writes the most beautiful and thoughtful posts. She's also got really great taste in boots. She might not agree, but I think we have similar tastes. She's sweet and fun and I just like her.

Fourth, my dear friend and writing buddy Karen. She has been the biggest support to me, especially with my writing, even when she didn't know why. She makes fabulous veggie sandwiches and rockin' awesome chicken enchiladas.

I am grateful for all of their friendships. They will never know how much they mean to me.

  1. Loved getting to know you better, Shari. And don't worry, someday you'll have that book and those firesides/tours/panels/speaking engagements. And then you'll wonder: Did I really want to do all this? And when you see that book on the shelf, you'll say, "Yeah, I did."

  2. Yes, I am stalking your blog. Mwa ha ha.

    The kitchen sounds like a delicious place to visit over and over again. And horray for the mini-van!!! You've gotta love those mini-vans. =)It's fun to get to know you better!

  3. Congrats on your blog award! I'm a first time visitor to your site, and had a wonderful time. :)

  4. Thanks for the award! I think you have great taste! You're my friend right? :-)
