Homies....

Oh...hello monday.

So..i woke up this morning to an email that my little blog had been nominated for an award....

seriously i thought...

an award?!

I actuallly thought this was a joke...

but apparently it's not.

First of all....i'm up against some seriously good blogs....

i mean...really popular blogs...

and i am not offended in the least that i wasn't put in the category of

home cooking

nope.....

not offended in the least....

cuz hey....

its an honor to be nominated at all.

So...read all about it below and then head over

here

to vote.
p.s. The $50 prize might help off-set that parking ticket i got....just saying.

xo

Shelter Bloggers Rule!
There are awards for all sorts of blogs, but no one ever pays enough attention to the shelter blogs, so we started The Homies. It's our way of surveying the blogosphere each year for the best new home design blogs and sharing what we find. It's not so much a competition as a celebration of the richness and awesomeness of shelter bloggers around the world. Join us, share your favorites and check out the ones you don't know.
There are five categories and none of our blogs or past winners are eligible. The prizes? $50 to the winner of each category and lots of traffic as we publish the five winners in a big congratulatory post across our network on January 6th. We want to elevate good home blogs, see who you love and gain awareness for the home niche.

Suh-weet!! Congrats to you, you totally deserve it!! Awards just plain rock don't they? They also say something like, "You, my friend, are nominated for an award because somebody somewhere thinks you're a SOMEBODY too." I love that.

It's good to be a "somebody."

can not believe my home was not recognized. Is there a "used furniture that is really ugly and given to you and you took it because you have no money to buy anything you like category?" Or maybe there is the "you home is filthy and ugly as shit and the kids colored on the gross rug you want to get rid of" category...or perhaps someone can nominate me for the "your kitchen is the smallest ugliest thing I have ever seen" category???? BEcause I would win. For sure. Especially the "you are almost 40 years old with 4 children and your home looks like a dorm room" category...THAT I would win for sure.

Congrats to you and your lovely home.
Excuse me now while I cry into my ugly pillows...
