Eeeeeeee is for Really Excited.

What a great way to start a Monday!! I wake up, make my breakfast and coffee. Check my email...see I have a comment on my blog (my favorite thing by the way, I know people tend to just visit then float off into another blog, but if you ever think about leaving a comment..I READ THEM ALL and I LOVE THEM please leave me more!!)...whee!!

I get a huge smile going as I read the comment, from FifiLaCupcakes. She has nominated me for the E for Excellence Award. I am SO flattered. Thank you Miss Fifi. I love your blog by the way...and am so glad you delurked to that now I can read you all the time.

So...then I had to look up this E for Excellence thing. Apparently, I nominate other bloggers as well. Well...the one downer about nominating people is that I have like 25 blogs setup on my RSS Feed which I peruse daily...I love them all. How to choose?

Well.. there ARE two blogs who are quite special for me. Both of these ladies were SUPER helfpul when I was getting my own blog up and running, answering all my crazy questions and still maintaining their own amazing blogs. So here ya are. Thanks ladies! XOXO.

Gigi Cakes: love her photos, her extensive knowledge & her perfect layer cakes & How To Eat A Cupcake, where I often find a recipe i want to try her experimental nature and candid comments

and two of my favorite real-life gal pals with sites I have visited almost daily since the day they launched..keep up the fab work.

Honeyed sweet friend who got me started in blogging and is my favorite Texan Martha & Stripey Dots, who is quickly up and coming with her fab crafty blog & etsy store.
