I Won An Award!

So I started this blog in June to start documenting my recipes... little did I know there was actually a blogging community. In fact I didn't think many people read blogs anymore with things like facebook and twitter taking over the world.

So when I got my first "follow" I was quite excited! Wow there are really people out there that read my ramblings and who think my food looks and sounds good! There are actually other moms out there who are doing the same thing as me?

Very cool stuff.

So you can imagine my excitement when I noticed I could track my stats... When I started getting over 100+ views a day I couldn't believe it! Or when the Food Files shared my recipe for Stuffed French Toast with their fans... (a measly 100k fans!)
I still have such a small blog in comparison to most of the ones I follow and read daily but I'm having so much fun building mine and making new fellow blogger friends.

Last night Sarah at Healthy Mom On The Run gave me an AWARD, so fun! I'm also super duper excited haha. ( I know I'm a dork) 

Sarah is a busy mom of 3 girls ages 12, 7, and 8 months, a wife and a teacher! Her blog shares healthy family friendly recipes, product finds, and day to day momish things. I love it! Oh and did I mentioned she is a fellow New Englander? So I like her blog even more now haha.

As for the rest of my Saturday... I'm currently treating myself to a cup of coffee (shhhhhhh don't tell) and a morning snack.

This is my favorite coffee cup this week... it's a cup I recieved in high school  for a drama festival. My mom found it in her barn last weekend. Do you have a special cup you drink your cup of joe out of ?

And as long as I don't find any messes like this... today will be a GREAT DAY!

Have a super weekend!
