Things have been a little crazy around here as of late...business at the shop has picked up a little lately, and I'm trying to get ready for Kate's birthday party a week from tomorrow. I've decided to hand-make all of the decorations and, while it's so much fun, it's taking a looooong time!!!! Note to self: Party City carries party supplies...;)

Anyway, a couple of weeks ago, Monica of Little Buttercup's Studio, awarded me (yes, me! can you believe it???) with a Sunshine Blog award! Yay!!! What a wonderful honor! I was so surprised! And overjoyed!

Now, like all of the Mrs. Americas, excuse me, I mean Sunshine Award recipients before me, I have a few responsibilities...they are as follows:

1) Put the logo on your blog or within your post
2) Pass the award to well-deserving bloggers
3)Link the nominees within your post
4)Share the news leave a comment on their blog
5)Link to the person from whom you received the award

So, to honor some amazing women with some amazing blogs, here goes...

*Danielle of Thompson Family-Life - girl, you are amazing & so super-talented...

*Rhonna of House of 3 & Rhonna Farrer Designs - ummm...jealous.

*Elizabeth Kartchner of Dear Lizzy - is it possible to be this beautiful???
