The Classy Blog Awards: Coincidence, I think not!

Last night I sat before my computer, the kids were in bed and the husband was watching baseball, so I logged on for the night. I started to think of my next blog post and realized that I had not awarded anyone the Classy Blog Award for the month of May. Opps, May is almost gone. Awards give me a warm fuzzy feeling and I love to spread them around.

In all honesty, I have been so busy re-vamping my personal photography website, taking care of three kids, and enjoying the Spring weather I have fallen behind on many blog type duties.

You can help me out on this one by:
A) Attaching your email to your blogger profile. If yo
u have commented and not received an email from me. Your email is not attached, but you still crack me up. Attach your email, so I can let you know how awesome you really are.
B) Check out my neighbors tab and make sure you see your blog there. If you do not, kindly shoot me an email to classychaos at gmail dot com right now. Most new visitors of mine, check out my neighbors tab first and if you comment here I want you to be represented.
C) Realizing that as much as I love to read blogs I am a very busy mother of three extremely active, not in school, and not napping children and can only get to so many each night. I love to read you. I really really really do. But I also love my husband and children very much too. Actually, I love them more than your blog.
D) Do you buzz or twitter? I try too. Find me ,
OHmommy, there too.

Okay. Back to my post.

So I was in the middle of composing my Classy Blog awards post when my sweet friend Rachel e-mailed me. She wrote... " I have a present for you. <3"

Shut up. I thought. She in Texas and I in Ohio and we were both thinking about each other that very same moment. Sweet. Weird. Whatever it might be, it was not a coincidence... we are truly very much alike.

I was writing about her the same moment she was writing about me. I puffy heart the internet and all my new peeps. Rachel from, A Southern Fairytale gave me her monthly award and I blushed out loud....


Her blog was one of the very first I checked out and was so intimated by, I didn't comment on for months. She was sassy. She was smart. She was... oh so very classy. She was everything I wanted to be as a blogger.

So not in return, but very much on (coincidental) purpose, my sweet Southern Rachel is my Ms. May of CLASSY BLOGS.

She joins the rankings of my very first two non-family-related readers: Ms. January Lunanik and Ms. February Huckdoll You guys are my firsts and forever in my heart. And Ms. March, my very own BLOGHER roomate in San Fran Don Mills Diva, eeekkk I am so excited to meet you. And the sweet Ms. April Amy from Memories and Musings my third reader.


With June only a couple of days away, I would like to present my next Classy Blog award to Tootsie Farklepants of Vintage Thirty. If you have not checked her out already, you are really missing out. She is hysterical. She is a mother of three. She is a blond beach skater babe from California and a writer extraordinaire.

This is a bit weird but that photo on the left in your profile looks just like my dad's cousin (when she was younger) who i was so in love with when i was little, i thought she was the GREATEST. Soo pretty & sweet & fun & very, very classy. You'd love her.
