I was reading through the comments from my last post, when I came across Sharon's (from Pinks and Blues Girls) comment and sat at my computer in awe. Apparently the "girls" think I'm a ...
Here's the sweet little shout out they gave me on their blog.
Now I am to pass along the honor to 5 other Rockin' Girl Bloggers! This is a very tough feat, as I read sooooo many really cool blogs by sooooo many really amazing, intelligent, witty, hilarious women!

Here goes:
Ms.Mamma- a truly amazing, inspiring, talented mamma. I just love, love, love her and her blog. She's beautiful, funny, and straight to the point and real. She takes the most gorgeous photos and she's got the most adorable little bambino named Snowflake and the cutest canine babies too!

CanineCologne- she's spunky, she's fun, she's got great taste in music, she takes great pics of the world around her...and she's one of my favourite foodies!!

Lotus- I fell in love with her blog. She's sooooooooo intelligent and always has so many interesting things to write about. She's another one of my fave foodies. I also love the fact that she is trying to 'share her love of food while trying to tread lightly'.

CuriosityKiller- She's hip! She's wild! She's fun! She's talented and creative! She's a friend of mine in real life. Blogging is our way of keeping in touch while she lives the cosmopolitan life (a la Carrie Bradshaw) in Hong Kong, while I've nestled into cozy country living on Manitoulin Island.

J- always has topics that make you really think. I love her style of writing and her wisdom. She always seems to have a logical response to any question or dilemma a person could have. She's got a wealth of information and I'm glad she is willing to share it! She's got great taste in literature and I love what a wonderful relationship she has with her hubby and her daughter.

Of course, I think that there are plenty of other Rockin' Girl Bloggers, but I was to only choose five! Jane, Audrey and Sharon...I wasn't sure if I could choose you since you chose me. I totally would have chosen you! Kim, Mist, GirlieMonkey, Karen and the rest of you are all wonderful and I check out your blogs every day too! :)

Keep on rockin' and pass on the linky luv to 5 more rockin' girl bloggers!

Congrats! Came over from Pink & Blues blog!

Lotus said...

Chrissy, thank you so much for the compliment. You're too generous. Seriously. I'm really quite a dumb ass. Sometimes a smart ass. But usually an ass of some sort...

Can I request some pix of the garden? I'm dying to see what you have coming up...

Cherry said...

I like the CuriosityKiller and will definitely come back there frequently :D

Chrissy121875 said...

Thanks! I checked out your blog too! I'll be back again!

LOL! You are so funny! You know how some people can't stand it when people write "LOL"? Well, your comment about being a dumb ass/smart ass/an ass of some sort really made me laugh out loud!

Yes! I will certainly post some garden pics. I am embarrassed about my corn though! I planted 30 friggen rows of corn...yes, THIRTY! It looks like only 15 or so plants are up though! I wonder if any animals have eaten the corn or if I got some seeds that were duds....I guess I'll never really know. I replanted where the corn didn't come, so hopefully I'll get some more. I love corn!

Yes, Curiosity Killer is hilarious, isn't she? We were friends in Toronto, but it was only when I moved away to the island that we really became close. Isn't that funny?? She's come up to visit me every summer since I moved. We have a blast together. She's a fun girl. Curiosity....I hope you're reading this! LOL! ;)

Cherry, I think YOU are a Rockin' Girl Blogger too! I figured that J would choose you for her 5 though :) I love your blog! I'm off to see if you've got any more wedding pics posted!!!

japanmanpete said...

If I were a girl, would you choose me as a rockin' girl blogger too?

Karen MEG said...

Congrats there girlie! You are totally rockin'!!

Ms. Mamma said...

You know how to make someone feel the love, Sweet Pea! The feeling is mutual!

louann said...

COngrats! THanks for stopping by my blog and I am happy I found yours too :)
Yup!!! I am from Baguio as in Baguio longanisa. But I prefer Vigan LOnganisa - that is my fave! So happy I found another Pinay!
I also have a lot of relatives in Canda - Toronto and Oakville (?)
Hope you won't mind me adding you to my list of daily reads!

BeachMama said...

Congratulations! You definately are one of the 'Rockin' Girl Bloggers'.

Dan said...

Congratulations! Someone gave me cat Lulu one of these. I'm serious!

I think I'm going to get a sex change operation so that I can get one for myself. :)

Chrissy121875 said...

If you were a female and if you had a blog, I most certainly would choose you as a rockin' girl blogger! LOL!

Thank you! You are too! :)


Chrissy121875 said...

Congrats to you too! Ohhhhh...I'd be honored if you added me. Thanks! I'll do the same! Oh, and what a small world! BTW, what's the difference between Baguio and Vigan langonisa? :)

Thank you! You are too! :)

Well, you get my vote for a rockin' boy blogger! ;) LOL!

Curiosity.Killer said...

Just when I thought no one loves me!

(dissolves into false hysterical tears and clutches huge shiny award with pride)

Thank you, Chrissy for your kindness and your friendship! You're definitely a rockin' girl blogger!

Thank you, Cherry, for mentioning me!

Thank you, Ms.Mamma -- It's such an honor just to be in the same category with you.

Same with Lotus -- she's such a classy and sophisticated blogger. I'm paled in comparison.

Curiosity.Killer said...

OH MY GOD, How can I ever FoRGET to MENTION J!?!?

Well, thank you all! Thank you!

Chrissy121875 said...

LOL! You're hilarious! I can actually picture you saying this! :)

total-spender said...

Hello from Korea.

Always a pleasure to read about life in the *real world*.

(You really do have a great group of commentators on your blog which I think answers your own question, i.e. you don't need to rethink you blog's direction. Just keep doing what you're doing).

Karen MEG said...

I HEART YOU TOO Chrissy - sorry I missed the comment about my "rockingness" first time around- luv ya!

caninecologne said...

we got back from vacation this wednesday and i'm just starting to catch up reading my fave blogs.

thanks for your kind words - wow, i'm a rockin' girl blogger! and to be in the company of other kick-ass chicks!

thanks again and i'll post some pics of my PUNY garden!(only 2 raised beds)

by the way, lotus is NOT a dumb ass! far from it!

Chrissy121875 said...

Thank you! So, are you all caught up on your Korean? Can you read/write in Hangul? I enjoy reading your blog. You remind me of some of the guys I taught with in Japan years ago!

LOL! I heart you too! Happy Canada Day! Hope you, the hubster and the little ones enjoy the day together! What fun! Are you doing anything special today?

Chrissy121875 said...

Welcome back!!! Sounds like you guys had a great time in NY!

LOL! Yeah, I thought Lotus was funny when she said she was a dumbass, because I know that she is anything but a dumbass! She doesn't strike me as a Beavis and Butthead type ;) LOL!

Can't wait to see your pics, Canine!

caninecologne said...

the beavis and butthead type would be ME! ha ha!

caninecologne said...

btw Chrissy, happy CANADA day!!!
