What's the big deal about Young Living

SQUEAL!!!

I was just clicking through my stats when I sat, staring, stunned at what I saw.

Then I ran into the kitchen, where The Smockity Bunch was congregated around a chocolate cake MaddieLynn had just finished frosting.

Me: “Y’all are NOT going to believe this, but I have been nominated for a Homeschool Blog Award!”

Them: (smack, slurp) “What does that mean?”

Me: “I might get A HOMESCHOOL BLOG AWARD!!!”

Them: “Will you win a Wii?”

Me: “Well… no I don’t think so…”

Them: “Will you be the president?”

Me: “NO!”

Them: “…oh…” (more with the smacking and slurping)

I am nominated in the Best Cyber Buddy Blog category (number 17), and I know this next part will strike you as astonishing, but I am tied for, get ready for it, brace yourself, DEAD LAST!

Since I KNOW I can’t count on those cake consuming vultures to vote for me [directing Stink Eye at the family] will y’all please go directly over there and rock the vote for Smockity? Come on, now. Your my posse. My peeps. We are tight.

Join Us at the HSBA!

The Best Cyber Buddy Blog is described as, “A blogger that you haven’t met, but you think you would enjoy meeting and hanging out with. She/he is a person that you would love to co-op with or live next door to…”

So, go ahead and ignore that nagging feeling that if you really did live next door to me you would be all, “Dude. I wish they would keep it down over there. Those Smockitys are all kinds of loud.”

Remember, if you don’t vote you can’t complain.

(I have no idea what that means, but I read it somewhere recently.)

  1. Hey yo! You’re only second to dead last now!! Peace out homey.

  2. “The Best Cyber Buddy Blog is described as, “A blogger that you haven’t met, but you think you would enjoy meeting and hanging out with. She/he is a person that you would love to co-op with or live next door to. Who knows, maybe one day we will get together somewhere at one of these bloggy meetings I hear about. I’m so jealous!”"

    Well, when you announced you were moving, the first thing I asked JunkMale was, “Do you think they’re coming closer to us? That’d be so cool!” And out of those listed for this award, you’re DEFINITELY my choice. So one more vote for Connie. :-D

    Linz,
    Word.

    Now I know how John Edwards felt. Having the best hair just isn’t enough to win. (sniff)

    Harmony,
    I already know the songs we’d sing! 728B, I’ll Fly Away, This World Is Not My Home, I Will Call Upon the Lord

  4. Congrats – you’re up to 5th place. ;-)

  5. Oh how exciting!! I looked at that list yesterday and somehow missed that you were on it! On my way to vote right now!!

    Congrats!! You’re a super blog to be put in the award, definitely! :)

    Blessings!

  8. Way to go!!

  9. Just voted and you are number 1 homegirl!!

  10. well, if you lived next door to me, you would be saying, “i wish that boy next door would quit kicking his soccer ball into our yard every single day!”

  11. Um, don’t strangle the kids in your enthusiasm, but you are definitely No. 1 now! P.S. I voted for you because I’d want to live next to you and your “guest blogger”…that girl’s posts are fantastic and I use them to inspire my own children to think about the world around them. Between the two of you, you provide tons of food for thought…thanks!

  12. Connie,
    I will gladly cast my vote for you! Your blog is really the only one that I read regularly (which is amazingly irregular — me, not your blog ;-) You are certainly someone I enjoy thoroughly, I love seeing what the little ones are up to and what’s new in the Smockity Household.

    If you ever come out to Californy, just let me know!
