I'm a Rockin Girl Blogger and He's INDAHOUSE!

yes I am - my sweet friend June told me so. She nominated me for this wonderful little award at her wonderful blog Simply Elegant Paper Crafts and i cannot tell you how tickled i am. Looky at this cool icon i get to put on my side bar

It took me a little while to find the source of the Rockin Girl Blogger - but if you're interested check it out - Roberta Ferguson Now I get to nominate 5 of my favorite girl bloggers. Fortunately for me, June already nominated the fabulous Jean (of Snap out of it Jean There's Beading to be done! - once you start reading that blog you'll find it is impossible to not smile or laugh out loud) so that leaves me still with five choices. so here are my five (i know so many more but i only have the five):

  1. Donna at Under the Red Roof

  2. Barbara at Smith411

  3. Sue at Wandering Star

  4. Michelle at So Listen Up!

  5. Joan at Drawing on Nature
All you ladies can now nominate 5 Rockin Blogger Girls whose blogs you love to read

oKAy - now onto other big news - he's indahouse

My husband came up the stairs and handed this to me and we both smiled - REAL BIG! The final Harry Potter book - arrived just as Amazon promised. My daughter and I decided we wouldn't be going to the Borders to pick up our copy of Harry this year. We read an article in the Washington Post a few weeks back. The article said it had become some people's idea of fun to go past book stores upon the release of the newest book and shout theeee most important revelation in the book at the folks waiting in line to purchase the book. We figured we weren't takin any chances! We love these books. We're both hoping things work out the way we want them to. We both have our theories as to the outcome of Harry and friends. Anyway, the book arrived and Eliz and I just had a little ceremony of sorts - opening the box etc. She gets the first crack at the book. She's finished reading her assigned book for the summer (As the Future Catches You: How Genomics and Other Forces are Changing Your Life, Work, Health & Wealth

that sounds like fun doesn't it - well i told her she had to get on that this week or I was getting first crack this year! She didn't let me down LOL!) so now she's got it and she never reveals anything until I've finished reading. Right now I'm re-reading HP and the Half Blood Prince to refresh myself of all things Harry so i'll be prepared! Okay i really gotta move on for the day!

Heeeey Tracy! Thanks for the award! I'm honored you'd think of me. :) The new HP book was the talk in the office yesterday. Everyone was abuzz. LOL. I've only read the first 2 books ... I need to get cracking! Thanks again!

June Houck said...

So are you next in line for the book or Joe? Doug started re-reading book #6 last night, and he is over 1/2 way. He gets first dibs on #7, while I re-read book #6. I can't wait!!!

Tracy said...

Joan - the beauty of waiting to read the books now is that you don't have to wait in between books like we did!
June -I am definitely the next one to read - Joe isn't the fastest reader and i'd probably kill him before he was done. Since he doesnt have a lot of time to read either i've gotten him the last 2 books on cd - since he's commuting to Baltimore 3 days a week - the cd's made his trip more enjoyable and he got to "read" that way!

Will said...

Well, I knew this and forgot about it. I'm not sure I know how to get that rockin' blogger image into my post. I'll work on it.
