So today while reading through my list of blogs.. I came across Erika at Chambanachik's post about the Military Blog Award nominations currently going on here.

As she puts it so well:

"To those outside the military blogging community, you might not know what that means-
it's kind of our version of the Oscars!"

Needless to say you can guess how excited I was to get to page two and see I had been nominated!  (Thanks Rachel!!)

It is pretty simple to vote.. click the little thumbs up next to the nomination on this page.
If you want to nominate a blog, leave a comment with their blog name, link and a link to their about me.

I guess you could say this is me shamelessly tooting my own horn.
This lady is one happy blogger!


Today is one of those days.
Those **sigh** I love life days.

If you don't live in Kansas, don't keep up with Kansas happenings or you are not friends with someone who is in Kansas, you probably don't know how GORGEOUS the weather has been lately.  A week ago I thought mother nature was going to pull a quick one on us and totally skip spring.. but nope.  It is here, and goodness gracious it is more than welcome.  After seeing my nomination, I came cruising home from work floating on a cloud.  I stopped and picked up my favorite broccoli cheddar soup (Jason's Deli), I jammed to the best country music ever and I didn't even yell at that one person that always merges WAY too late.  I opened the windows, turned on the fans, switched all my Scentsy's on and took the dog outside.  And now?  Now I am settled on the couch with a full belly and some GREAT DVR'd TV shows lined up for the evening.  To top it all off, tomorrow I get to sleep in.  What did I say about being a happy blogger?

I was going to photograph the hot air balloons.. but they showed up as little dots.
Instead you get ANOTHER picture of my fur child.
P.S. Look at that green green grass.. it rained for a week straight and that was the result.
The only thing that might have made the day a smidge better would be if the opportunity was there to do "redneck" things with my husband.. such as fishing, BBQing with beeeeer and cruising with said country music blaring.. wait, those aren't redneck things?  My bad. :)

I hope each and every one of you gets the chance to have one of these days too.
