I never would have thought...

Well, it seems I've been nominated for the Thinking Blogger Award. I never thought a post about poop would lead to this. Twice. I am so honored. :) Thanks Amanda and utMommy for the nominations!! I feel special.

Now it's my turn to name 5 blogs that make me think:

Stepherz is an awesome momma! I found her, after she found me, a few months ago and I am hooked! You can just feel the love oozing when you read posts like this. She constantly reminds me that the kids grow up too fast- I need to treasure these years! She also inspires me with her baggy pants!

2) Suzanne is another great thinker. I actually get to meet her next weekend. YAY! Every Tuesday she does a gratitude post and sometimes the things she list are so simple that I'm like "DUH!" She makes me look around more and see all the wonderful happenings in my life- even if they are small.

BlackEyedSue isn't blogging regularly right now, but when she does she always makes me think! Her last post was about guilt and by the overwhelming response to it, I think she made more than just me think! She's been a little busy, making babies and all, so I hope she has the chance to see that I was thinking of her!!

4) tara at
La Vie est belle is awesome. She was a guest blogger here and the post is inspiring and really informational. She is also an amazing mom who just wants the best life for her kiddos. All the bad stuff out there that worry moms, worries her too!

Mel rocks. She's a great mom and inspiring. When she write about her daily life I am in awe. Her kiddos are learning sign which I am a huge fan of. Her son, Crew, is an amazing little boy with a strong mommy that everyone can to look up to.

The participation rules are simple:

1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think,

2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme,

3. Optional: Proudly display the 'Thinking Blogger Award' with a link to the post that you wrote.
