Ok, now that's done.

On to the Top 5 Tuesday topic: this week is going to be...Your top 5 places to shop, and why of course.

Awards time!

Carol reminded me that it was Rach@Mommy learns to blog(sorry Rach it's been a long hard week) who gave me my award, along with Wendi, at Because Wendi Said So!.

Ironically, they gave me the same award on almost the exact same day! I guess great minds really do think alike.

So this's the Arte y Pico award.

It has rules.

Here they are:

1) You must pick 5 blogs that you consider deserve this award, based upon creativity, design, interesting material, and that also contribute to the blogger community.

2) Each award must have the name of the author with a link to his or her blog to be visited by everyone.

3) Award-winners must show the award and put the name and link to the blog that awarded it.

4) Award-winners and the one who has given the prize must show the link to the Arte y Pico blog, so everyone will know the origin of this award.

5) These rules must be included in your post.

Now I have to choose 5 people. I'm not even sure it's possible to find 5 people that don't already have this award (believe me I've looked).

Here they are:

  1. Beth at A Real Anti-Supermom

  2. Wendy @ Let the Dog in

  3. Auds @ Barking Mad

  4. Kelli @ Writing the Waves of Motherhood

  5. Monica @ The Barnes Bunch

Well, blogger jacked up my post while I was working on something else I had to add, so I'm out of time. I will have a suprise for a couple of other people coming up soon, but now I have to go to bed!


  1. I totally forgot what a great movie SWAT is. Thanks for the reminder.

  2. I think I've been tagged for this one before, I'll give it a look-see!
