Uber Amazing

Crayl at Beyond Black & White gave me this blog award which was great because, well, I was sitting in front of a blank screen wondering what to post about. I decided to read some blogs for inspiration. Wouldn't you know, this is the first one I clicked on. It was also great because, well, I am humbled by what she said about me. "Mrs. Schnozeberry*, Living in a Fishbowl, our husbands used to work together, long ago, at a church in southern Ca, neither of us are there anymore... she is funny,a witty actor/director, a great story teller, a pastor's wife(complete with handbook) and PAPER PREGNANT, give her some love. (*name change to protect the not so innocent)." Ahhh. Gee. On this day of weeding and cleaning and packing and diaper changing and pulling cobwebs out of my hair, I needed the love. Thanks Crayl.

And now for my Uber Amazing blogs. I'd love to nominate Crayl because her blog title alone always makes me smile but I fear that would keep this rolling in some sort of inescapable cycle. So without further ado, drum roll please...

I first started reading Missives From Suburbia when I won a Starbucks gift card from her after last year's NaBloPoMo. Then I discovered that her son is just days younger than my own son and her wit light years ahead of my own. Needless to say, I've kept reading.

My mom at Empty Nest-Full Life tells crazy stories about her children, vacations and life and cracks me up in the process.

Dena at Happily Ever After has the cutest blog design and she often posts pictures of her adorable house. Once she posted a picture of the cleanest most wonderful laundry room in the world and I realized that I had arrived as an adult. I also love knowing what is going on in the lives of her sweet family members.

I've never met Kate at Our Quiverfull but I have been following the story of her little Noah for quite some time now. He was born just a few weeks after Garrett and he, together with his family, fight for his life as he struggles with some serious health issues. Through it all they continue to praise God and inspire the rest of us.

I don't know Running Wildly personally. In fact, I usually just refer to her as "Running Wildly." I did this once in front of our mutual friend who kindly offered her real name to me. I love hearing about her adventures in nursing, motherhood, and spiders as she lives in our neighbor to the north.

There are so many blogs on my bloglines that it was difficult to choose just five. If you were not mentioned, please rest assured that I also love your blog! Also, Crayl, I have no idea who Mrs. Schnozeberry is. I am Mrs. Doozleberry. But I understand, it's a tough last name to pronounce. Even after all of these years...


  1. Ya know, I almost called you Mrs. FishPork. I sometimes call your Mom Mrs. Crustationmallot.:)

  2. You made me giggle here.....just picturing you calling me Running Wildly to my friend. Hee hee. Love it. Thanks for the shout out. You are too sweet.
    One day if fate deems it so, perhaps we would actually meet in person and I'd introduce myself with my *real* name. ;)
