***IT'S A BLOGATHON***

I've had several people ask me about this button on my sidebar.





Well today is the perfect day to introduce you to The secret is in the Sauce...or SITS as they call it. It is a blog that encourages everyone to leave comments...lots of comments on others blogs. We all know that "comment love" is the best! They also have some amazing contests with REALLY cool prizes! And they spotlight a special blogger each day who gets to be QUEEN! They link you to the best 3 posts by that blogger and give you a chance to meet somebody new. Today is their BLOGATHON which is a special day to introduce others, not only to SITS but to some of your favorite bloggers that you met there. We're supposed to each do 5 so here are mine....


The first is Anne Lefler....she blogs at "life just keeps getting weirder" I found Anne very recently...and I'm telling you people....you have GOT to go see her. Just a warning though...never NEVER EVER eat or drink anything when you read her blog. Because you will either suck the food and beverage into your lungs...or spit it out all over your keyboard. Trust me you are gonna be LAUGHING! This woman is nuts and in a good way...she is also the only lady who can make a mustache look chic!


I also met Gingela from "my dogumentary". Again...a very very funny lady. I guess I gravitate to blogs that make me laugh. I just enjoy the exercise laughing gives my tummy...it also is my excuse for not having to go to the gym..."hey I laughed today...whew what a workout". Gingela makes me laugh. And I love that she loves dogs! Hop on over there and say "howdy"...you won't be sorry.


Then there is a lady I know some of you already know...that would be Elizabeth over at "Thoughts from an evil overlord". It was actually Elizabeth that introduced me to SITS on her blog. The cool thing about her place is that she does all this research on blog sites and places that have great give-a-ways and other stuff you'll be glad to know. She does all the work and then shares her vast knowledge with us. She's very generous that way. She's also a really amazing lady who has lived through some trials with bravery and class. Quite an inspiration I must say!


One more blog I just recently discovered is called "Even the nice ones" It's another one of those blogs that make me spitlaugh. I'm embarrassed to say that I don't even know the creator of this blogs first name. To me she's just "The nice one". I'm a doofus and she can slap me upside the head next time she leaves a comment. But dang woman...put your name in your profile!!! Go visit her anyway! And ask her what her name is and then come back and whisper it to me. She does these really funny posts that make you squirm a little because you just know she's talking about you...well at least I did when she talked about "big hair". She's great...you'll love her!


You gotta go see Cheryl at "blue berry buttons" Not only does she have a beautiful blog. But this woman is the most generous lady on the planet and has a heart of gold. She makes these incredibly delicious dog treats! (well according to my dogs...I haven't tried one...yet...) Crumpet has asked her to marry him but he hasn't gotten a response yet. Check her out!


And now I'm gonna cheat just a tiny bit. I found one more new blog....kinda sorta through SITS...even if she isn't a member I'm gonna mention her anyway. Like I said I just love blogs that make me laugh out loud....and Jill over at "Jill jill bo bill" is that kind of woman. She is Hysterically funny. So funny in fact...I can even forgive her for being a dog hater! Go give her some comment love anyway. You'll be glad you stopped in.


And I know what you're thinking.....CRAP the last thing I need is more dang blogs to visit...my list is already a mile long and I haven't fed my kids in 3 days! I know...but let the little buggers scavenge for themselves...these ladies are worth a little family starvation!

Happy SITS! Your blog is so fun! And I always enjoy meeting fellow LDS members!!

Heather said...

Mrs. de Miranda is going to think I'm stalking her - she has been the commenter riiiight before me on the past several blogs I've popped in on for the blogathon today!

I share your disease of reading and reading and reading books, too, by the way - I read 3 or 4 books (other than the ones I read to my 5 year old, I mean) each week and also enjoy mystery thrillers! :D

Cheers and happy Blogathon day!

Ronnica said...

I just went by Anne's blog and she's HILARIOUS! I'm so glad I found her through SITS! I'm afraid I'm going to have to move her into a category of her own in my reader just to remind myself not to read it during my lunch break!

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

I am not doing a SITS post today as I am celebrating my 100th post. Please stop by and enter my giveaway.

Natalie said...

I've read your blog several times as I always seem to find my way here through the blog chain, lol. Never realized you were a SiTSah, too! Happy Blog-a-thon!

Sincerely Yours said...

Morning Nikki! Thanks for the info! I usually keep going back and forth checking out blogs that my favorites visit all the time but it is embarrassing if they have live feed cuz they see me clickin on and off their blog when I'm going down their list of favorites!lol So recommendations in a post are easier!(did any of that make sense?? 1 more cup of coffee please!lol) Have a great day. Off to check your new friends out! Til later - Jeannette

Happy Blog-A-Thon!!

The Blonde Duck said...

Can anyone just join? I'd love to meet some lovely ladies!

Beverly said...

Okay, I am going to look, but I do believe you're going to be in trouble with me.

I just found you, and you have made me love your blog. And, now you're going to compound it by "forcing" me to go fall in love with more blogs.

I'm going - kicking and screaming and protesting. I guess actual sleeping is over-rated anyway - right?! And, spitting helps with weight control - right?! ;-)

Aleta said...

It's a little scary, this blog world. I jumped in without thinking what was out there. Lol. I just thought, "Eh, sounds like a personal journal on-line to share with family and friends"

What little did I know ~ so many friendly folks out there in this world. Ok Ok... I've seen the SITS thingie 5 times today - something is telling me to get thee over there!

What A Card said...

Ha! Love that last paragraph!

I'm popping by via SITS...fun, fun!!

Big Hair Envy said...

Fifi Flowers said...

You are HILARIOUS... who cars if the family eats... momma's gotta blog! LOL... I think my kids would say that about me!

Bella Casa said...

Kewl!

You part about the kids scavenging for themselves made me lol...did you see Desperate Housewives on Sunday? Hilarious! The 2 moms toast and tell each other they are great moms...then the kids come down and ask for food and the one mom says, 'get it yourself and bring mommy some ice for her drink!' Too funny ;)

Bella

Carolynn said...

*snort* You read my mind! The last thing you wrote was EXACTLY what I was thinking! Where am I going to find the time to add more blogs to my list of favourites in this all consuming, crazy addictive, blog habit I have? I'm going to have to start a group therapy club or something, soon. Bloggers Anonymous.
Must. stop. now.

Nanny Goats In Panties said...

You're awesome!!!

Talk soon!

Cheryl

Heather said...

*ahem*

My sincerest congratulations on your big Blogathon win, you luckiest woman in the whole, wide world!

No, really, it isn't absolutely killing me to say that. I swear. I wasn't ready to sacrifice my kid (and quite readily also my husband, cat and the kid's evil carny goldfish) to win the one prize that you won. I wasn't making bargains with the Giveaway Gods, offering them my very soul for that one, teensy thing that I coveted more dearly than the blogosphere itself. Honest.

I must be off now, to dismantle the shrine I'd set up in anticipation of my win. Ah well, I suppose it is more appropriate to display Kiddo's art on the fridge, or at least more traditional..... ;)

Enviously yours,
Heather the heartbroken



Seriously though, *many* congrats and ENJOY your prize! :D

Cheers!

Elizabeth said...

WOO HOO for You! Congrats on being the big winner!

Sandy Toes said...

How Fun! I will check these blogs out!!

I know what you mean...I have so much to do..WHERE am I? at the computer!!!!

It is addicting! Do we all need an intervention??? They should do a reality show on BLOGGING!!!
-Sandy Toes

Nancy said...

I will give them a visit! Thanks for sharing them with us. Nancy

Molly said...

Congratulations on being the grand prize winner! I am highly jealous as I heart George Clooney, so if you want to get some martini stuff from me as a trade, just let me know!!

Heather said...

*whistling innocently*

Oh, I love t-shirts.

Yep, that's what it is. I don't, you know, have a specific post label for George Clooney on my blog. Nope, I'm a HUGE t-shirt girl. That's the ticket.

Okay, well, I am HUGE at any rate.
:D

Cheers!

Christie said...

congrats on winning the grand prize!

mommaof4wife2r said...

u r the grand prize winner!!!! woot woot!

Heather said...

Congrats on the grand prize! I love the song you have going with this post, too cute!!
BTW, you've been tagged!

Fifi Flowers said...

OMG... you are the GRAND PRIZE WINNER... CONGRATS!!!!!!!

TMI said...

Congrats on your fabulous win SITS-ta!
