I'm still on holiday in Spain and this week we have gotten some friends visiting from Trondheim (Norway). This means that I actually have to DO the things I have been blogging about all summer. So now I'm out playing in the pool with the kids, sunbathing on the beach, shopping like crazy (sales!), eating at fancy restaurants, playing cards and drinking wine. This leaves little or no time for blogging!
Getting home from another restaurant visit tonight I stopped by my husband's lap-top just for a quick look and found out that I have gotten an AWARD from Samsmama at Raising Stink. She is a new acquaintance, but I love her writing and her humor. She is one feisty mama - and she will give you the giggles! (Anyone that calls her kid Stink is alright in my book!)
Drop by her blog and say hello.
(I got both of this pictures - chose which one you want to grab, or grab both - like I did!)
The rules of the award stipulate that I have to pass this on to 15 people... Sorry, that's not going to happen - not tonight! So I have narrowed it down just a little bit. So this award is hereby passed on to a few of my favorite blogs:
La Belle Mere - this one is for you! I didn't even know you a week ago, and now I'm hooked. You crack me up every time. Hysterical in every way! PLUSS, you're the only one I know that has the SWINE FLUE! That alone makes you deserving of this prestigious award!
Vale at Les Cotrions has a beautiful blog that will immediately transfer you into the heart of Italy. You'll be surrounded by lavender and french country style home decor. I love her world!
Maya at A Beach Lovers Place has one of those blogs that I just want to visit regularly. Her photos and her posts often make me smell the salt, feel the sand and hear the waves. If you are a beach lover like me, you have to go visit her!
La la Lovely things is another favorite on my blog list. This is where I go when I want inspiration or need to see something pretty. Go visit her and enjoy all the la la lovely things!
And to a few of my Norwegian blogfriends:
Nanni at Nannisverden is an excellent storyteller. Very funny, but also philosophical and wise. She's a shabby girl, of course, and will drag you along to all the little quaint stores she finds on her path. If you haven't visited her, you should!
Marit at Som mine dager er takes the most amazing pictures. She finds beauty in the most simple things and is able to "seize" the moment like few others I know. If you visit her I know you'll have a lovely time just seeing her world through the camera. There is something about Marit that tells me we would have a lot to talk about over a glass of wine....
M at Et glimt av M is another one of my favorites. She can make a simple story come alive and will often write very short posts that grabs your heart in two seconds. (I have to learn something from her! Mine are just getting longer...)
Sorry, that's all I can do tonight. I have met so many wonderful bloggers and I wish I could honor you all for sticking with it. I'll keep coming by and visiting you as often as I can. In the meantime I leave you all with this little treat:
Now, if anyone has an idea for my pink post on Saturday - please let me know!
Need some inspiration here...
