Fresh and Fabulous

Clearly, spring break with 4 children home, a 40th birthday and the Husband away is a recipe for Armageddon.

You'd think it would also be a recipe for some blogging moments but sadly, it's only a recipe for blogging moments on an anonymous blog.

Hence the quiet around this blog.

But I can report that something happy came out of last week....the week that was also known around these parts as, "Why SHOULD I go in the shower, we're not DOING anything anyways!" by one of my dear children who was a tad miffed our family was not having the time of our lives in Disneyland.

My little blog was given this:

If you want to go and experience what you could have turned out to be had you been paying more attention during home ec in high school, head on over to The 6 o'clock Stitch. Not only will you be inspired to create, but you'll be dragged into the world of Etsy. You'll need several hours. And your credit card. Don't say I didn't warn you.

So now, I have the honour of passing on The Fresh and Fabulous Award to two other blogs I think have that F and F quality.

Firstly, I am bestowing this award to Tentative Equinox , who is witty and thoughtful and writes about life as she sees it. She also writes about Aspergers, learning disabilities and her children's success with Fast ForWord. The great thing about her blog is you never know what she's going to write about. It's like opening up a box of Cracker Jacks. You never know what the prize is inside.

And I also bestow this award to Bake at 350. Because I love baking. And she makes scones. Lemon scones. You have to go see her blog just to drool over the pictures. I do. Although I'm pretty sure I could never recreate any of her baking wonderfulness, she writes like she thinks I could. I love unpretentious baking blogs!

Have a great day.

And make yourself a cup of tea before you go clicking on those links.

Consider yourself warned.

Thanks for stopping by. How funny that our blogs have such similar names. I got a chuckle out of some of the "hubby" comments. I do so relate.
Have a blessed evening!
