2 Nominations. 3 Surprised Curvies -Kate writes

As Amanda shared on Friday- she was contacted by the Katie Couric show to possibly come on a future episode to discuss body image and intamacy. Though the 3 of us could do that with our eyes closed (and mouths a flappin' and some wine nearby) the show wanted husbands with us. Unless we were down with a 3 way women on women, we didn't count so it was no longer a fit. But it was an honor. And I don't say that cheesy. It was a breath taking moment that meant the world to us. We are being read by people we don't know. Not my mom and best friends. Strangers who find value in what we say along with the supportive friends we know come along on our thoughts with us.

Also this week, a fellow blogger Surprise Mama nominated our blog for a Liebster Award- an award given to an up and coming blog. The award is based on nominations from other new bloggers. It becomes a support system! It is all just lovely. Thank you Surprise Mama. That was an awesome surprise and we are grateful to you for the shout out.

In order for us to accept this we must share 11 random facts about ourselves and answer 11 questions that was asked by Surprise Mama. We are also supposed to nominate a few up and coming blogs ourselves. My blog reading has dropped off since I went back to work, but I can nominate a few and perhaps the other Curvies can as well if they know of some that fit the requirements.

Recommended:  because she is living in ALBANIA and it is a real place.  I am fascinated byt the balance of a serious-ass job and motherhood  since I have no idea what is in style and miss corduroy already this Spring  my Yogi friend, Linda, just starting out in the blog world!
