Wow. I'm amazed and humbled.

I feel so honored to have people reading my blog. It really is kind of amazing to me that there are people interested in the thoughts and trials of this Unfinished Mom.

Several times over the last few months some wonderful readers have given me an award. The latest one came from Joshlin at Saving Moms Sanity.  It surprised the daylights out of me, because I just don't think of myself in that way. So, thanks to Joshlin for this honor.

The Best Blog Award rules are:

1. To accept the award, post it in your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award and his/her blog link.

2. Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you have recently discovered and think are great! Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

Okay.  Confessions: I don't think I'm going to have time to find 15 new blogs to pass this along to. So, I'm going to join Joshlin in her rebellion and pass it along to 8 other bloggers. Please, if your blog isn't listed, don't take it as an insult, it just means I ran out of time.

I will pass this award to:

# 1Caroline at QAMom
I love the peaceful theme of her blog and, though she's new to the blogosphere,
I think she's off to a great start.

#2 Erin at Closing Time
I keep running into her blog when I visit various memes. I am enjoying getting to know her. I've also gottten some really good tips from her.

She's new to being a Stay at Home mom and learning so much about how wonderful it is.

#4 Mikki at The Not So Perfect Housewife
Mikki is also kinda new to blogging. I think we're going to find that Unfinished Mom
and the Not So Perfect Housewife have a lot in common.

#5 The Frugal Girl
Okay, so this one isn't new and it isn't even new to me. I've been reading her blog for a few months and I've really enjoyed it. I think she's the one that inspired me to actually shop at a thrift store for once in my life.

#6 Mother Hen at Ship Full of Pirates 
 She blogs about her oh so unusual (for me) life in Texas raising 5 boys and a girl (oh my!)

 #7 Amy at Mason Dixon Magnolia
She's a friend IRL who recently began her own blog. She's already posted some really great frugal tips and some great inspiration for this mom.

#8 Jennifer at Saving and Giving
Amy actually introduced me to her. This is where we found the tip for peeling a potato in 10 seconds. I also discovered we have similar tastes in blogs - our blog rolls are very similar!
