Rock On!

Wahoo! JJ has nominated me as a Rockin' Blogger. Sweeeeet. I'm such a huge fan of JJ's that it's an honor just to be on her list. :-)

We all know how this goes, I now choose 5 of you lovely ladies who have not been nominated yet. Lemme see...

1. Can any all-star list be complete without Mel (Stirrup Queens and Sperm Palace Jesters)? As I've mentioned before, she's the center of the IF universe to me. With her newest brainchild, Lost and Found, she is performing yet another invaluable service to the IF blogsphere. AND she's a kick ass Mom to her kids, AND she works, AND she's just a good friend. Somehow she always finds time to be there to support you when you need her, and she makes you feel like you are the only one.

2a. Kami (Are We There Yet?) is truly amazing to me. In addition the fact that we suspect we are somehow related since we seem so similar, I admire her for her strength. Her willingness to let us into her thoughts and feelings during this entire donor egg process has been nothing short of Courageous (with a capital C).

2b. Can I also sneak in TeamWinks (Are We There Yet?) since these two have the same blog name? I know it's cheating, but I really had a hard time just picking 5. The grace and love she has demonstrated during her adoption of Lucky has been an inspiration. She was already a superstar for the way she was handling IF, but when Lucky got thrown into the mix, we all got to see yet another beautiful side to this amazing woman.

3. Ashley/Gabby (Vacant Womb) is a relatively new blogger, but has already shown herself to be sweet, sassy and downright wonderful. I love the way she pours her heart into many of her posts, it makes me wish I could drive to Florida and give her a big hug.

4. Waiting Amy (Waiting for .... ?) is also a somewhat new blogger, but is also one of my favorites. When you read her blog, it's almost like you're having a conversation with her. I really enjoy the way she writes, and find it very easy to connect to her story. She's traveled a long road and endured much heartache already, but she is right there to support someone whenever it's needed.

5. Rho (Nobaby Lane) is a Rockin' Chick. She's been slacking on her blog, but I suspect it's because she doesn't yet have a large group of readers. She is intelligent, thoughtful, and knee-slappingly hilarious. She too has faced many challenges in this IF journey and could use our support. So hopefully by nominating her, she'll post more often with that crazy sass and humor I've known and loved so much these past 5+ years!

Now shoo -- all of you go find 5 people to nominate.

Whoa - thanks Leah! I am honored. I will get to my list tomorrow. Tonight I am going to check out some of the other blogs you mentioned.

TeamWinks said...

Thank you so much Leah! I really appreciate it. Then again, you have been amazing during my journey. I'm lucky to be by your side during yours.

The Town Criers said...

I am beyond honoured. That was one of the nicest things anyone has ever said about me.

Waiting Amy said...

Thanks sweetie! I'm touched that you thought of me. I'll do my best to live up to the salute.

PS - you're one of my favorites too :)

Gabby said...

Ah! Thanks Leah! I am surprised, but very touched. Thanks for the kind words. Please know I feel the same about you. Your great! Your such a great comfort...and I LOVE your blog. :] It has been one of my favs since the beggining!

Hey Leah,

Man, as much as I don't want to wish this on anyone, it is helpful to know there's someone else going through the very same shit. I'm just sorry you have to be that someone. Maybe we can just root for each other rather than for ourselves? To me, your cycle seems like a sure thing, but I can totally imagine how you might not think so. So, I've got my pom poms out and am yelling


This fantabulous cheer only works if your name is pronounced Lee, not Lee-ya, of course. In case I'm wrong, I hope for Cheer's sake you'll allow me some artistic license.)

By the way, re your previous post, your are SO not horrible person because you didn't find instant joy in your boss' pregnancy. I wouldn't even fake it if I were you.

Can't wait to hear how things are going! Good luck on Friday.
