So…how cool is this – two birds with one stone people!?!? Gotta love when the stars align for a minute or two….
TIme to Audition for BLOGGER IDOL!
Yes, you read that correctly. Blogger Idol. Blogger Idol is this amazing contest where bloggers new and old throw in their hats and 12 are selected to blog until the DEATH. No…not really. But there’s an elimination contest and over the course of 12 weeks of blogging assignments a winner is chosen and amazing prizes are awarded (click here to see the LIST!). But more than that – you learn more about some seriously wonderful bloggers. I found blogs I hadn’t yet discovered and now follow. The judges …. other bloggers.
Now…besides Blogger Idol auditions….
More of the many reason fall is my favorite season….(well…it was until I learned to snowboard….now it’s tied with winter) warm soups for dinner, bread baking (as long as I can find a good GF recipe), BACK TO SCHOOL for the spawn, the gorgeous colors of the trees along the river, and football for Eldest Spawn. I admit it – until he started playing, I was not too interested in professional football. I grew up in Iowa – where you cheer for the Hawkeyes or the Cyclones. Or maybe the Panthers. So college football held my interest but not professional. Now…8th grade football has me engrossed in everything from well, 8th grade to the Packers. And even more…I love the fun family and friend gatherings to ‘watch’ football (READ : eat whatever is brought). And running. I love to run outside in the fall. The crisp air. The clear roads. The pretty trees to distract me from wanting to die before I get to the end of my route.
