Stylish Blogger Friends!

I won a blog award!  Thanks, Joanne, over at Figuring Out the Small Stuff!

This is how this fun award works:
1.  Thank and link back to the person who honoured you with this award.
2.  Share 7 things about yourself.
3.  Award 15 recently discovered groovy bloggers.
4.  Contact these bloggers and tell them about their award.
My seven things:
  1. My daughter (who is four) and I got our hair cut Saturday night. We only get it trimmed once or twice a year.
  2. It's supposed to snow here for the next 36 hours.
  3. My Christmas tree is still up.
  4. I love going to school. I've been to college twice and I'm thinking of taking a certification class online. Either teaching or technology related, or both. 
  5. I don't have a goal weight, but rather a goal size: 10! From a 14, that's only two sizes to go...
  6. My writing desk doesn't even have a pencil cup!
  7. I wish everyone in the world cared enough about Earth to want to save the rainforests.
At long last, here's who I choose to give this award to:
  1. Faith, blogger of Literary Coldcuts on Toasty Buns, a cool-looking blog that's been around since 2008. Lots of cool stuff.
  2. Alison Pearce Stevens, author of science and fiction, but not both...
  3. Alyson Peterson at Crazy Writer Girl - she is humorous and spunky.
  4. Sarah Frances Hardy at her new blog, Picture This, a fellow picture book blogger :)
  5. K. D. Anderson at her new blog for YA
  6. Mrs. P. Ripp at Blogging Through the Fourth Dimension. She's a 4th grade teacher (my favorite grade, by the way)!
  7. My Word is an Oyster - Lydia Kang talks about writing and mixes in medicine
  8. Jest Kept Secret - She participates in the Road Trip Wednesday, and interviews writers BTWP (before they were published).
  9. Coffee Rings Everywhere - Rayna M. Iyer from Bombay India, on writing and being a mother
  10. Dooley Noted - Sarah Dooley is the debut author of Livvie Owen Lived Here.
  11. The Picture Book Junkies Blog - a group of 5 professional illustrators!
  12. Picture Books and Jolliness with Heather Kephart, (master of web/blog design)... and writing...
  13. Natalie Whipple at Between Fact and Fiction. She writes YA and is repped by agent Anna Webman of Curtis Brown, LTD.
  14. Missed Periods and Other Grammar Scares - the name says it all
  15. The Miss Rumphius Effect - a teacher and librarian discusses POETRY. Lots of great blogrolls on the sidebar, too. Many famous writers and poets frequent this blog!
