My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

PenofJen was nice enough to award me this little award a couple of weeks ago. It's my first ever, and may just be my last. See, I've been fighting with my conscience ever since she gave it to me. Here's my dilemma. All the "girl" bloggers who I would award it to have already gotten it, some of them many times. So it seems to me like the award is just making the same rounds thereby making it obsolete. However, there are 6 "guy" bloggers that I think rock big time who (of course) haven't been given this award as of yet. So, blame the headache medicine but I'm going to BREAK THE RULES.

First I must gratefully and (somewhat) graciously accept the award as given. Y'all need to go check out Pen of Jen as she is one cool lady. And yes, I must say I DO rock. Twice a day, every day; once before nap time and once before bedtime. Usually with 2 little boys in my lap ;-)

Now, for the 6 that I am going to name as Rockin' Girl Award Winners.

1) Blowin' San #1, written by Subvet. He's rocked my world ever since December of 1998. He writes a great blog mostly about political absurdities with some comedy thrown in. Always entertaining.

2) Infantry Dad. He's got a son in Iraq and shares funnies and frustration alike while supporting not only his son, but anyone else with family members overseas who stops by. His blog is fun to read and often there is more going on in the comments than the actual posts. He definitely rocks.

3) The Chief over at Smoldering Embers in a Mohawk Campfire. I've no idea why he gave his blog such a long name but he's one very funny guy. An ex-Marine who takes great wildlife pictures, especially of birds pooping on rear view mirrors. Some of his stuff is 'R' rated so take off your goody too shoes before you go over there. He is one rocking blogger.

4) Cookie at The Cook Shack. Now, Cookie and the Chief keep stealin stuff from each other so sometimes you get a double laugh if you visit both. Cookie not only keeps me laughing but he will also put up some delicious recipes. He's an ex-Sub Sailor and he usually gives a warning before the 'R' rated stuff comes up. I've always loved his motto "Never trust a skinny cook." He rocks, as a matter of fact, he can probably cook rocks and have em taste good.

5) No Apology. This guy writes a lot. Most of it has to do with either current politics or homeschooling. His posts are always informative and thought provoking. I enjoy visiting him when I want a good non-fiction read. He rocks too.

6) Big White Hat. This is one of the good guys. He writes many inspirational posts along with some short stories. It's great to read about his kids and the encouraging way he deals with the trials of parenthood. Another thought provoking rockin blogger.

So there you have it. I've broken the one and only rule attached to the Rockin Girl Blogger Award. Go ahead and take away my birthday...I've had enough anyway. But be sure to visit these guys, they are very good bloggers!

Does this mean I can finally get in touch with my feminine side? Uh, what are the other rules, MightyMom? I mean the ones you didn't break? I'm just askin'.

And tell Subvet I may ask him over for tea.

Seriously, this is cool.

Congratulations MightyMom on this Award!!!!!

Cookie..... said...

Thank you MM fer this very prestigious award...but I dasn't show it to my wife or I'd never live it down... ;-)

Pen of Jen said...

I love this. Thanks for thinking outside the box!

You deserve this for so much more than rockin a few times each day with the babies!

Cool choices! *clear my throat* good job, men...i mean rockin' girls!!!!

MightyMom said...

Thank yous and You're Welcomes and Cookie, I'm gonna CALL your wife and tell her about it :-) heeheehee.

No Apology. So far as I know, the only rule was to give it to women bloggers that you think rocked. Also, you were supposed to give it to 5. (Guess I broke that one too)

I knew you guys would have fun with it rather than be offended....

Infantry Dad said...

Aww shucks "blushing" Gee I don't know what to say!! Accept you put me above Cookie, and the Chief.. lol I'm sure that was an oversight, as I truly am not worthy.
Thank you Mom.
Lots of love to you, Subvet, and the kiddos.

I have absolutely no idea what I'm going to do with this thing.

There is a male counterpart to this floating around out there.

You just wanted to see how we would react. Well, I don't know how to react. I may hang back and see how some of these other fellas do.

MightyMom said...

BWH Actually, I didn't know there was a male counterpart.Remember I've only been in blog land for a month. You want a fantastic reaction?? Check out the Chief's site. I've read it about 10 times and I still roll on the floor every time I read it!!
I truely did mean it as a compliment.
I enjoy your blog. I just wish you posted a bit more often :-)
