I Heart Blogging!

I just posted my 100 post this weekend, and I have to say I LOVE THIS BLOG THING! This is actually my second husband set me up with one while back, but I guess at the time, I just wasn't ready...I only made one post in one year...haha!

Well, this time, I was ready, and I am so happy I stuck with it. I used to go onto the internet and not know where to look. I would go to 2 or 3 celeb gossip sites, and that was it. Until I discovered the blog community...I never realized that there are SO MANY talented people out there that we can all learn from. I am so impressed every day with all of the great ideas I see and learn, and in turn use for my entertaining.

Now there are some blogs that I can't wait to read everyday. Here are some people I want to give a shout out to:

LITTLE ANT DESIGNS: Denise at Little Ant is so creative! You have to check out her blog. I LOVE IT!

GOOD THINGS: Life of a Martha Stewart Wannabe: Anyone that knows me would know that reading the title of Claudine's Blog...I AM HOOKED! Claudine...I Heart your blog! :)

GESTURES: Now you might think I am biased, but that isn't true at all. Louis is my baby brother, and he is one of the most talented people I know! He is one of my best friends and his ideas are so great! Anyone that knows him, LOVES HIM! :)

LIVE.LOVE.EAT: Stephanie posts awesome recipes and sweet stories about life with her family. Love it!

I also want to say Hi to Johnny Love at THE LOVE MANOR. I started my blog because I could never find the stuff I was searching for. I am big on Halloween, so when I discovered Johnny's site, I was so excited. Photos of food, displays, how you set things up...that is all so helpful, and Johnny took a lot of time photographing everything he displayed for Halloween. You have to go to his blog and check out his Flickr site. Thanks for sharing your great ideas, Johnny!

I think the best part about blogging is the feedback...just like I love to see my friends reaction when they see the real thing, I love to hear what you think! Getting a comment in my inbox is like Christmas everyday! Thanks so much to all of you who leave me comments! You make my day! People like my friend and fellow blogger, Dena at Written In Thread...and I have to say that Jennifer at Another Online Mom is so wonderful! She always says the nicest things! Just yesterday she made this post about me:

The award says, "This blog invests and believes in the proximity!" i.e., the closeness that we have in the bloggy world. It's really hard to narrow it down to one person but I think I will pass this one along to of my new "daily must haves"---Marcie at A Life Made By Marcie. If you have never seen her blog, please take a minute to check it out her great recipes and decorating tips!"

How nice is that?! Thanks Jennifer! :)

I guess what I am trying to say is THANK all of you. Everyone is so nice and I am so happy to know you, even if it is inside this blogosphere! You all make me smile!

wow, thanks Marcie. You're right about it feeling a but like Xmas when you get feedback. It just feels nice to know when we put something out there were not just talking to ourselves and we're touching someone in some way, however small or big. So, getting your shout out was like a present to me as well. Thank you for that!!!!!! You're also right about Jen at Another Online Mom. She's one cool chick!!!!

As for those pork sandwiches, I PROMISE these are the way to go. Picture my dainty MIL who never finishes just one sandwich. Well, she had two of these and they were NOT minis :)
