On the road again.... (and my first blog award)

In just a few short hours Superman and I are hopping on an airplane and heading east!  No, that is not a typo, I didn't leave someone out...hubby is staying home for now (and joining us in 10 days).  TEN DAYS!!  I honestly can say that I don't have any idea what I am going to do without him for 10 whole days.  The only thing worse than this would be ten days with out Superman....sorry hubby, baby trumps husband right now. So why am I leaving the love of my life for 10 days?  Well, I am going to visit my parents (and a great group of fabulous friends that are still my friends despite being away for so long)!  I grew up in upstate NY and I haven't been back for a whopping 4 years!  I am going to blame my parents for this because they keep visiting me here (are you buying this? no? yeah I wouldn't either).  Now that I am home full time I figured there was no excuse for not going and actually staying for a little while...okay there is one excuse--->my husband since he needs to work.  BUT, since I have the most understanding husband ever, he told me to go and he would meet us for the last week.

So what does all this mean to you?  Well, basically I have no idea when I am going to post next.  I am not sure what the internet connection capabilities will be at my dad's house so I am not making any promises...and besides? I think it will be good for me to step away from the computer for a little bit (and it isn't like I have been a very frequent blogger lately any way...so we are really just talking about missing 4-8 posts at the most). 

A few pieces of business before I leave:

West Metro Mommy gave me a shout out with her "Notable Blogs of the Week".  She said some real nice things about me and it would great if you could swing by her blog and check her out.  Thanks!!

On almost the same day that West Metro Mommy posted about my blog, I also received my first blog award from Jackie at Ready.Set.Read!! (It also happened to be the day that Rebekah from Mom-In-A-Million post her own award that I was totally going to steal.)  So it is the "A Blog With Substance" award and I am so stinking honored, I don't really know what to say.  I mean, I want to share my story and if other people can learn from my experiences that is freakin' cool.  I want to pay this award the respect it deserves, so I am not going to rush and try to get my post done before I leave....so this is one of the posts that I promise to write in the first week that I am gone will be about this award and passing it on to other great bloggers.  So please stay tuned!!

Congrats on your awards and on your new lil one!! Happy 6 months to him and you! They are fun at this age. I have a mommy blog myself and I was wondering if you would be willing to do a mommy interview for my blog? You can see what completed mommy interviews look like on my blog. If you are interested I would love to hear what your answers are and you can email me at theloveofmylifewearsdiapers@gmail.com
Hope to hear from you soon!
