Award Time!

It's been a big week(ish) for me. Let's start with the real world: I won the Bourbonators Series of Poker. Well, I'm pretty excited.


Now for the meme style:
The Charming Blog Award
"These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."
I was honor was given to me by Father of Five. Not only is he a fellow Minnesota and father, but he's a darn good writer as well. Being a father of five, he's got lots of stories to share about parenting. This time of year, he joins many of the other folks that live up here and practicing on of our oldest fall activities...hunting.

Thank you very much for your kind words FoF!

Throwing A Nut to A Squirrel

Weaselmomma at World of Weasels threw this squirrel a nut. According to her site: 
“These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.”
On a spin of what WM had to say, I really like the phrase, "Even a blind squirrel can find a nut." And I thought I was stalking her blog.

I can't imagine I have any readers not already avid fans of World of Weasels. This mom of Weasels writes a blog I look forward to every day. From the FlatWeaselMomma tour to homemade commercials...she's got the goods. While you are there...remember to click her ads. You'll be glad you did!

Here comes the point where I pick X bloggers to share this award with. Yikes. Here's what I'm gonna do. If you are in my blogroll, consider youself tagged!
