Philosophy is defined as a theory underlying or regarding a sphere of activity or thought. Well, my theory is if I can add at least 10 new books to my Wishlist and move at least 5 older Wishlist selections to my TBR list every month, then life is a ice cream sundae. And if I can find those 10 books from at least 5 new blogs each month then that's the cherry on top.


Well, I've made it almost 5 years now, so for better or worse, I continue on. I tend to blog in spurts as the urge to be creative erupts. As I don't have an artistic bone in my body, you will see very few changes in the layouts. Hey, I'm a reader not an artist like so many of the awesome bloggers I follow. I know you don't always have the time but if you stopped and looked, take a half a minute and say your piece. Recommend a book that you have enjoyed or hated for that matter. Thank you to all who visit.
Oh, and I moved my Google Friend Connect info and share this buttons to the top, as without our friends, who are we?

What is a Stiletto Award??? Check out for the full details.
There are thousands of blogs, and there are hundreds of awards. The Stiletto Award is a little different than most!
First, to understand, let us understand the Stiletto… some words that describe it…
Classy – Strong -Exotic – Demure – Extreme – Ultra – Sexy - Bold – Funky

This blog is meant to be shared, to be given out, to be bestowed upon any and ALL women who exemplify what the stiletto represents.  If you’ve received this award, here’s what you do:

1.  Display your Stiletto Badge of Honor on your sidebar!

3.  SAY THANKS! - include a link to the friend who nominated you for the award.
4.  SHARE THE LOVE!  -nominate 5-10 blogs that you feel deserve the award.  Include links to them in your post -and- leave them a comment to let them know they are nominated.
5.  DO WHAT YOU DO!  -keep at it.  Keep inspiring and encouraging and sharing your life!  We love it and we thank you!!!

Wow, here I am, a very new blogger still learning the ends and outs and only a dozen followers (true I've not exactly sought out followers as I was so inexperienced) but someone over at "The Busy Woman's Guide to Surviving Motherhood" (  thought I deserved the Stiletto award. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Well, I get to nominate some blogs that I feel deserve the award so here goes.

 5. Pamela @Busy Moms Who Love to Read
 These are just a few of the many fabulous blogs I follow and each has welcomed me with open arms. They have made me laugh (often spewing coffee all over my keyboard). And I truly believe laughter is all that gets you through some days when you would  rather just crawl back in the bed and pull the covers tight over your head.  They have also made me stop and reconsider life. Something that after over 30 years of raising the 3 greatest kids in the world, I wasn't sure that I acted in life as much as reacted to life. My baby at 20 is almost done with college and finally my hubby and I will be free(happy dance). No really, I love my kids, but with 8 years between the first two and 7 years between the last two, I thought we'd never get done raising them. It's finally our time and reading blogs and books have helped make the transition smooth. Thanks to all the wonderful and funny bloggers that have added a lift to my step and a smile on my face. I salute you!!

In case you hadn't noticed - I am also Pamela from Busy Moms Who Love to Read - because I girl's gotta have two blogs, right?

How do you keep up with two blogs and raise kids?
My one little blog baby suffers much from my fumbling attempt to keep it clean & neat. For some reason every time I turn my head "she's' fallen in a mudhole or gotten her part dress pulled sideways.

LOL - It's called be afflicted with the need to overachieve - it's sickness really!

I've never heard of the Stiletto award before. Thanks for the info. I'm glad that blogs are getting some recognition.
