Blogs I think are Super Uber!

Seems the spirit of giving has started early, as I keep having these wonderful presents sent to me!





This one is courtesy of SophieMae.


Uber is a German word that is similar to our English word which means "super". An Uber Amazing Blog Award is given to a site which:
1. inspires you
2. makes you smile and laugh
3. or maybe gives amazing information
4. a great read
5. has an amazing design
6. or any other reason(s) you can think of that makes it uber amazing!


The rules of this award are:
1. Put the logo on your blog or post.
2. Nominate at least 5 blogs (can be more) that for you are Uber Amazing!
3. Let them know that they have received this Uber Amazing award by commenting on their blog.
4. Share the love and link to this post and to the person you received your award from.

SophieMae's blogs fit all of the above criteria for me. If you're reading this and have never checked out Sophie's blogs, then I urge you to do so.

The 5 blogs that I'd like to pass this on it are, in no particular order...

Not All Who Wander are Lost - Marc and Eliana. These friends of mine are inspirational. They both put their "normal" life on hold to take off on a cross country, no time limit, road trip. They didn't want to wait until retirement. They wanted to do it now...while they were young enough to do it all and not have any responsibilities holding them back (ie. kids!). Inspirational, fun and educational...their blog has is all!

SomeCranky Guy. Now I know SCG won't post this award or anything, but I want him to know that his blog is a daily read for me for many different reasons: He's intelligent and many of his opinions echo my own. He often has awesome photos (I esp. enjoy the "taken while driving" ones). He is informative and always makes me laugh! This Bud's for you, SCG!

Sayre Smiles. Sayre is a fellow Florida blogger that I love. Her blog is always fun to read and makes me smile. I can relate in many ways to her life. She's a down-to-Earth person that I hope to get to meet some day.

Oceanic Wilderness -Misti. Always filled with wonderful pictures of the places I want to be. She inspires me to do more and to be creative. She reminds me, through her blog, to be nice and to not get too heavy about things. (I try, but sometimes I do use my blog to vent.) Her blog is eye candy...landscapes, gardens, goofy pets, and cutiepie babies!

Sandcastle Momma. Life with the Island King and Island Boys is always entertaining... This woman has more funny things happen in her life than anyone I have ever known! One day I have to go caching with this woman...

Thank you! You're so sweet!

I've been absent from blogword for a couple of days experimenting with slipcovering chairs and couches. Trying to spruce up a little for holiday company - after helping my friend, I realized how ratty my own furniture was looking!!!!

Thank you! We are definitely going caching together one day but we're filing a flight plan before we leave because Lord only knows what's gonna happen LOL

Oh, that is so true! We'd have a blast!
