Nina. Enough said.
And a little beauty goes such a long way...

Mariposa always makes me feel like I have had a little vacation
when I visit.
Whenever I feel like I am too busy to get anything done,
I stop by Chere Mere in her lovely new hometown
http://web.me.com/hsgray/Catching_Fireflies/Blog_/Blog_.html
and I leave feeling refreshed and like I need to get on the ball.
She has way more going on over there!
Another busy Mom who makes it look so easy...

Heather's blog is filled with brilliant ideas to keep her two boys active and happy
and I wish I lived close enough to join in!
Another inspiration for me, is Wendy..
http://zoomtimes.blogspot.com/
I take full credit for bullying her into blogging, so go see why.
She is the homeschooler I wish I was creative enough to be.
My favorite is still the giant squid..we will copy it one day.
Really..this is difficult...I am always amazed at what and how everyone of you are doing
with your children and with your lives.
I am going to end this list with another "Z"....my favorite "cat lady".
Zilla.
No one makes me laugh or think more. I am grateful every day that I "found" her.
Big hugs my brilliant friends...you all add so much to my life.
And Wendy..thank you for giving me this...I would have given it to you if you hadn't!

Thank you so much. I would give it right back to you to, but someone already beat me to it. You make me laugh with the "makes it look so easy" line. If you only could see behind the scenes, complete chaos! So much fun though. Thank you again.

What a cute meme! Thanks for the award. You're so kind. It just makes my day to think someone thinks I'm brilliant. Isn't it great to have a best friend in your dh. I feel the same way.

When you have time maybe you could post some items of your favorite shade of chartreuse. Ben Franklin has so many great quotes and interesting accomplishments.

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
