Talk about PRESSURE!!!

Don't you just love surprises? I know I do!

I got a really nice surprise today from Cheryl, as she chose me as one of her favorite blogs to read (Thinking Blog Award). I can't say that I remember ever being "awarded" anything. Some people may not think of this as a big deal. But for those of us who are serious bloggers, this ROCKS!!!

Being one of the "award winners", I was put to task to choose 5 of my own favorite blogs to read. Talk about pressure!!! I love reading ALL of the blogs that I have linked on my site. As well as the few that I frequent that aren't linked (they're just in my favorites on my browser). Now let me just say, that I enjoy ALL...and I do mean ALL of the blogs that I read on a daily basis. However, it seems that I'd better set a good example and do as the "rules" indicate. So without further delay, here's my top 5.... (in no particular order)

~B.E.M. - Hopefully, B.E.M. won't mind (this time) if I use her name, Melanie. I have totally enjoyed reading Melanie's blog over the past several months. She often has thought provoking topics on there as well as fun and interesting writings about herself and family. I enjoy seeing pictures of her adorable daughter, Little C. And I must admit, sometimes I find myself pretending that she's reading her posts out loud...in her English accent (she's from London...LOL). Be sure you check her out...it's worth the read.

~Let's give it up for Jude! Oh my goodness, I love reading Jude's posts. Although I wish she updted her blog more (something about being pregant and tired keeps her from doing it more often..lol). But I'll tell you, everytime I read her posts, I'm just cracking up laughing. I love her wittyness (is that a word?) and her humor. I always look forward to her saying something funny. If you like laughing, check out Miss Jude. It'll be worth your time.

~Next we have Miss Susie Q. - Susie has the cutest and most welcoming blog. Everytime I go to it, I almost feel like she's opening her door & heart and welcoming me in. She posts some yummy sounding recipes and tells the sweetest stories. For a warm and cozy blog, check out Miss Susie Q.

~Ok, I know I'm not supposed to choose someone who has already been chosen. But I can't help it in this case. Cheryl's blog has become another one of my favs. I love that she almost always has pictures to share. I love pictures. Not to mention, it comes across so clearly that she truly loves her family and loves to share all the goings on in her life. Stop by and see Cheryl...you'll be glad you did.

~Last, but definitely not least, is my new blogging friend, Lynilu. Oh my, talk about an inspiration. I've only been visiting her blog for a couple weeks. But Lynilu has become one of my daily reads. She comments often that she can't understand why I say she's such an inspiration. I'm not sure I can answer that in the time that I have here, nor in the times when I leave her comments. But just reading about how and WHERE she lives her "BEAUTIFUL" life, just inspires me. In this short period of time, I've learned alot about Miss Lynilu and how she got where she is today. Believe me, her blog is a joy to read. So if you also want to be inspired, go check her out.

Alrighty, that'll do it for me. And for those of you whom I've chosen as my favs, it's now your turn. The "rules" state that you must now do the same and chose your top 5 favorite blogs and post them on your blog. Everyone else, feel free to do the same. I'd love to hear who your favs are and why.

Thanks again Cheryl, this was fun.
