I'm a GEM.......(truly outrageous, truly, truly outrageous)....

(Just ignore that nod to my 80's childhood...I loved JEM!!!) Now down to business,

THANK YOU!!! to the lovely Joyce at Making the Best Joyce and the fabulous Zoet Moet at Le Chateau de Chiffon for giving me an award......(I love both of their blogs and highly highly recommend checking them out if you have not already!!!).

"This award is for the special bloggers who take the time not only to read my posts, but also leave comments, respond to comments, form blog friendships with and support others, answer blogger questions, etc. . . . the ones who are "a real gem" in the bloggy world! The bloggy world wouldn't be the same without you! The only rule for this award is to accept it, display it proudly on your blog for all the bloggy world to see your greatness, and/or pass it on to other bloggers as you see fit. So, to the following bloggers I say, "you're a gem to me" and here is your award!"

So I would like to nominate the following bloggers/blogs because everytime I visit I learn something new:

Dina at My Superfluities -- I love her bubbly personality, colorful outfits, and adorable kids!!

Summerilla at Sum Sunshine -- I love her candor and great fashion sense!!

ABC at A Bigger Closet -- She's just beautiful inside and out....and her JCrew clothing collection is to DIE for!!
