I GOT AN AWARD!!!!!! THANKS AMANDA!!!!!!!!

I received my very first bloggy award..........from my good bloggy friend Amanda.....she is mommy to Brooklyn and their blog is listed on my right blogroll under "learning to breathe"......Brooklyn is 3 days older the E Squared. Since this is the closest I will ever come to winning and Oscar I would like to thank........God......just kidding. Get it......an acceptance speech!!! Along with the award comes 4 questions to answer and then I have to pass it onto to 4 blogging buddies.........so........
1.) Do you have the same friends since childhood? I AM still friends with some of my childhood girlfriends....my friend Cynthia and I have been pals since we were 5.......and let's see dare I say that's nearly 30 years......phew we're getting old. My friend Letha and I were in the Brownies together.......also around age 5.......we lost touch through most of our childhood though and reconnected in college.....
2.) What do you value most about your friends? I have many friends and I love them all for different things......but my few "best" friends.......wow there are many things that I value about them......they are there WHENEVER......we can go months without talking and pick right back up where we left off.......the friendship is always understood to be there and if we need each other we are there understanding that often life gets in the way of frequent talking and/or visits......Kristin, Letha, Yvonne, Theresa......thick and thin!!!
3.) Are your friends your sounding boards? ABSOLUTELY!!!
4.) What is your favorite activity to share with your friends? Well that depends on where we are......if they are visiting me here in CA....of course wine tasting, eating, touristing........it's wine country after all.......if I am with them in LA......eating, drinking, just being......

Now for my chosen 4......I read ALOT of blogs so this is hard......I love them all otherwise I wouldn't follow them EVERY day right?????? But to stick with the rules....I will pick 4. Of course, if I had not gotten this from Amanda she would be in the list.......keep in mind that I STILL haven't learned how to link in the text but I will put the name of the blog and you can click on it in my blogroll to the right.........

1.) Sara at "gasspasser aka UUer".........she just had a beautiful itsy bitsy baby girl named Brynn....she is a nurse as well.....but does anesthesia hence the name gasspasser. She had a challenging pregnancy with a fabulous ending. Sara rocks!!!
2.) Erica at "mommypix" listed as Ava Brynn in my blogroll........ she takes awesome pictures and will be doing our 1 year pictures when we are in AL for E Squareds first birthday...and no I am not showing favoritism because she is family.......check for yourself she IS talented!!!
3) Danifred at "sippy cups are not for starbucks".......She too just had a beautiful baby girl......named Bean sister to Tot...she is very funny and an extremely talented writer.......also a little on the wild side.........just in the fact that she has a toddler, a newborn and will soon "fingers crossed" begin working on her PhD........NUTS!!!
4.) Missy at "two little monkeys"........she is a very talented seamstress and mommy to identical twin girls........abby and emma!!! She is also an Alabama fan.......so she has Jons vote. She makes the most creative dresses and tote bags and bows.........check her out!!!
