The “Write” Reward  


I did not call my blog Mommy Gossip because I thought it was catchy, cute, or because it was the last one on my list not already taken JK. And, I didn't even name it Mommy Gossip because I like to gossip. Because, when you look up the definition of the word gossip, it usually includes another word—scandalous. And scandalous does not define me or my blogging philosophy. Nope, I named this lovely site Mommy Gossip, because I love to share stories. I love to chit and to chat, because I have found it is one of the best ways to see that the greener grass is right between my very own toes.


But, gabbing wouldn't mean anything if it weren't for all of you mommy babes in blogland who gossip with me—who share your stories and the shade of your own green grass, whether it be in the winter or summer of its lifecycle.

So today, I want to thank several people for bestowing awards on me. This blogaritaville sugar is the purest and sweetest variety there is. I'd also like to spread the love by giving these awards to many mommies I call my friends.


This award comes from Elizabeth at Parenting Pink and Parenting Pink. (Nope, I didn't accidentally repeat those. Click on each link to see how this amazing mommy can multi-task.) Then, visit these sites to see who my blogging BFFs are.

Candid Carrie—Let the Healing Magic Begin literally made my cheeks hurt from OD-ing on laughter. I didn't think it was possible, but Carrie showed me it could be done.

Posh Point of View—The two Jennifers (see below) definitely deserve this award. I always wanted to be BFF with a homecoming queen. And these two are some of the finest—and competitive—you'll ever meet.

Happily Ever After Land—(See above.)

Decisionally Challenged—Georgie is hilarious. Visit her site and then read her guest post on Postcards From the Edge to get a good laugh.

Can't Hardly Wait—Georgette is brave, bold, and candid in her posts. She's tough and tender all at once. Love this girl!

And speaking of Georgette at Can't Hardly Wait... Her and Melody at Pennies in My Pocket took me international with this award. Drop on by to get in on the goods. And remember, I am guest posting at Following in My Shoes today, so make sure to comment where you are there.

A Cowboy's Wife—Just dropped by here today for the first time. Love this site's design. Plus she has another site dedicated to food. What's not to love?

Following in My Shoes—Rachel is hilarious and her Little Lady is adorable. What a combination.

Bloggedy Blog Blog—You will want this gal to decorate your house, take pics of your kids, and eat lunch with you. Love this site.

Moms, Ministry & More—I've got nothing on her public restroom experience. Go to Following in My Shoes to see mine and link here to see hers. All I can say is WOW!

On the Flip Side—Love the current yet sensitive topics addressed and the differing opinions expressed here. Check out today's post that deals with pornography. It's G-rated. Don't worry!


Postcards From the Edge—Deb is spicy and keeps great company with Jill Jill Bo Bill, Amelia Bedilia, and Georgie. Add some flavor to your browsing pleasure by visitng her site.


Classy Chaos—How could you not love someone who describes herself as a stilhetto ho and a dentist's wife?

What next?

    Holy Scomboli! I have never been here before, never applied for membership, never auditioned for anything and yet I was given a gold card and this is so cool! I am guessing this is what it must be like to be popular in the real world.

    I print each award on to photograph paper and then use a shrinky-dink kit and make charms for my bracelet! Yippee for me because I am shallow like that and I want my non-blogging friends to see that there are real people on the internet and not just robots and perverts.

    Anyway, I saw your remark about cellutlite and how comments can assist with that and I wanted to let you know that I am leaving a very large, long comment because I've got years worth of dimples that need some spacklin' so I don't know what you plan to do with this particular comment to turn it in to cellulite-cure-all but remember that I should get more magic potion than the other thirteen people because my comment was longer than any of the other comments. I mean, not like it was a competition because I already won something cool.

    I am glad you were able to feel pain in your cheeks after reading about my D.C. trip! Yup, because my lady biz was numb for a long time so you just be glad you had feelings!
