I learned a new trick, so give me a medal

I learned how to do links today, so I'm going to practice by linking you to some of my most favorite things ever.

My brother has a blog of his own, where he writes the first drafts of his poems. I really liked this one because it reminds me that when Tom decides something, it will happen.

My friend Coby has a blog that inspires and makes me laugh. She takes me back to my first job, where we would laugh at each others' brilliant observations all. day. long. She's my taller, prettier, wiser twin sister. I'm mean, check this out.

Yet another friend, Nikki, got me started on this whole blogging thing. She was my mentor at the community college, back when I was gainfully employed. She had her baby in June. I had mine in July. BOTH of our babies were full-term, and both spent the first week or so of their lives in the NICU. Seriously, what are the odds?

She also blogs, and is hilarious. If I didn't love her writing so much, I would be consumed with envy. Check out this memory of a fine day from her reckless youth...

Paul doesn't get my interest in the site Cake Wrecks. Yet, I cannot get enough of wacky cakes like this or this.

Finally, I would be remiss to not mention Amalah, a blogger that inspires me, yet drives me to drink most days because I will never be that good. Check out "Hat Trick." Ex-actly.

I must stop now. There are many more blogs that I love and I follow, but the baby has awakened, and life marches on...

Nancy, this is great! Congratulations. I hope you continue to have fun and learn more about blogging. Learning to link is on my list of things to do.

Thanks for the props (yo).

Seriously, what did your mom eat while she was pregnant to turn out two amazing writers?

A steady diet of The Mammoth Hunters and Danielle Steel.

Not really. We all just read a lot.
