Thank you to The Pioneer Woman

Ever have one of those really crappy days when you just want to step outside and scream at the top of your lungs?

Or cry your eyes out?

Or maybe you’ll feel better if you do both?

That’s the kind of day I had yesterday. Completely frustrating and discouraging,  until last night,  when I checked my inbox and read an email from Heather at The Homeschool Post.

It seems that The Pioneer Woman didn’t claim her prize for winning the Best Blog Design for the recent Homeschool Blog Awards. I’m sure she’s busy cooking those yummy Christmas cookies that she’s mentioned a time of two on Twitter. Oh to be able to cook like that…to have a blog like that…to take pictures like that…I really do love The Pioneer Woman. Do you ever read the homeschooling posts that she writes? That woman is FUNNY! I want to be a blogger just like her when I grow up. Hmmm…on the other hand, maybe it’s too late for that…

Anyway, since she didn’t claim her prize, as the first runner up, Live the Adventure has been declared winner of the 6th Annual 2010 Homeschool Blog Awards!


Haven’t I always told you that my blog designer is wonderful? Louise, from Adori Graphics took my idea and turned it into a design that I LOVE!

I hope you’ll click on over to her site and give her a pat on the back. She deserves it. And next time you need a blog button, business card design or a total blog makeover, I hope that you’ll consider Adori Graphics for your design needs.  I heart her. She is AWESOME!    

Without sounding like I’m totally gushing here, I’d like to say a HUGE THANK YOU  to Adori Graphics (just in case it wasn’t clear above),  the HSBA Post for hosting the awards, to everyone that voted for Live the Adventure and to The Pioneer Woman, who unknowingly gave this blogger a blast of much needed encouragement.

And now, bring on the prizes… :)


  1. Congratulations! I'm so happy for you and you so deserve this award. Blessings, SusanD
