I Have Been Schmoozed!

So I opened my blog this morning and voila! - This award:

from Sophiagurl!

So, I checked what schmooze exactly meant :

schmooze or schmoose also shmooze : v. intr. To converse casually, especially in order to gain an advantage or make a social connection.

And Lancy furthers adds that "good schmoozers effortlessly weave their way in and out of the blogosphere, leaving friendly trails and smiles, happily making new friends along the way. They don’t limit their visits to only the rich and successful, but spend some time to say hello to new blogs as well. They are the ones who engage others in meaningful conversations, refusing to let it end at a mere hello - all the while fostering a sense of closeness and friendship."

Now reading that made me feel good. And it is but right that I award this award to the people who I feel have become my friends, although I have never met them, they have made me feel so loved.

1. Chrissy, who I found through the Rockin' Girl Blogger Award list was just too friendly I could not resist her! She loves the beach and so do I.

2.Amandasue and I like the same books. In fact, because of Little Miss Suzy, we ended up as blog buddies. And I can't wait to read her stories during her 9 month journey to motherhood part II!

3. Jane, Audrey and Sharon. Who would not love them? I admire the relationship they share, love their pictures and enjoy their stories.

4. Mama G. How can I not include her? Can't. I look forward to reading her blog everyday almost like an addiction, you know that, right?

5. Shoshanna. I love her. Really. Visit her blog and you'll know why.

I do have to say that the schmooze award and description from Lancy really suits you!

Hi, I came by because you awarded a fellow blogger of mine, Chrissy, this award so I just HAD to go investigating. Not that I don't think Chrissy doesn't deserve an award, in fact, she deserves BIG TROPHIES because her blog awesome.

So I'm going to visit a few others who are worthy of this award, if you don't mind!

Nice to meet you, and I LOVE the picture of you and the family at the top of your blog! Did I mention cute kids, too? No? Okay, very cute kids!

Louann, thank you. I love your blog too. I am always reading, even if blogger really hates me most of the time and won't let me comment. I get this "do you want to display blah blah" and no matter if I say yes or no, it asks me again.

And then when I go back, it does the same thing. Ughhh....next time, Iwill be smart and e-mail my comments instead. :)

Mama G said...

First off, congratulations to you!!

I've just returned from two weeks away - so I'm now off to read all the rest of your posts I've missed while I was gone.
