I've been awarded!

AnneK gave me such a sweet honor today. Besides letting me know that someone actually reads my blog, she gave me this:

Anne found me when I left a comment on another blog. She checked out my site and has been reading ever since. I've also been regularly reading her blog ever since her first comment here. We obviously saw something we liked in each other!

In the spirit of this honor, I'm to nominate a few others whom I find to be "rockin'."

Cathy is a friend I've known for a while. We met on a bulletin board a few years ago. I learned early on that we may have differing beliefs regarding religion, but that doesn't mean we don't have plenty of other things in common. She's just an all-around interesting person, and her blog is positively fascinating.

Meredith probably barely knows who I am, considering her blog is highly visited, and I'm just one of many. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if she's been named a Rockin' Girl Blogger numerous times already. However, I would be remiss if I didn't mention her. It was actually her blog that first piqued my interest in blogging. Her site is still one of the first ones I visit each day. Her philosophy of contentment and living a life of frugality and beauty is a daily inspiration to me.

Carrie has a great site. I can't even remember how I ran across it, but it's become one of my favorites. I enjoy reading about her daily life, and she seems like someone I'd love to hang out with if we ever met in person.

The Frugal Homemaker is an impressive woman. It was nice to meet another SAHW (no kids) online, and I've enjoyed reading about her life of frugality in order to pay off a student loan and the mortgage. Even though she's now working outside of the home, she's still trying to live as frugally as possible. I can't help but be impressed!

Mercedes has an amazing cooking blog. She has my undying gratitude for creating and sharing a wonderful meatless recipe that my husband loves! (He has kidney disease, and we really need to cut down on his consumption of animal protein. It's rare for him to really like a meal without meat.) Her blog is filled with creative recipes, lots of pictures, and the ability to incite the desire to cook.

I found your blog through AnneK's and I had to come over and say hi! I too am married to a Star Wars fan. We are headed to the Stars Wars exhibit at the museum. He is so excited!! Anyway, I look forward to reading more of your blog!

Thank you so much! I'm touched!

Thanks to all of you who have been reading. :-)

Kyla, I hope you enjoy the exhibit; it's small, but good! Ruf has been up there multiple times, including last weekend, to be a stormtrooper. The people really seem to enjoy having the characters walking around and interacting. The guys joke that they're rock stars when in costume because everyone wants to take pictures with them.
