I talk about food a lot. And other stuff.

But mostly food.

Stiletto Award

A few weeks ago (on my daughter's birthday, actually), I was given a Stiletto Award by Siri at siriouslydelicious. I know, right? That's some fast recognition for someone who had only been blogging for 14 days at the time the award was given. Today, on day 31, I am writing about it, and giving out my own. I know, I'm a slacker -- but I'm new; gimme a break. Here is what the Stiletto Award is all about. I am grateful and humbled to be given this award, especially by Siri.

I only know Siri through the magic of the internet... and the greater magic of food. Her blog makes me laugh, makes me hungry, makes me inspired, and sometimes makes me wish I knew her when I lived in Santa Monica so we could hang out and drink wine and make food and eat it together while our kids played. She also writes another blog where she writes letters to her son. It is also amazing. You should all go visit siriouslydelicious and bask in her loveliness. Thank you, Siri!!

It is now time for me to give out some awards. Here we go:

My first comment from someone I don't know was from Jennifer, A Self Confessed Foodie. She lives in Minneapolis, loves food, and sometimes invites you to play along with her in her "Your Turn" posts. I think we should probably hang out and eat some food together, seeing as I live in Minneapolis, too.

Baby Barto chronicles Sara's adventure with her son, Turo. I went to high school Sara's husband, and though I have never met her, I love keeping up with this family through her blog's honesty, sweetness and gorgeous pictures. She has a secondary blog, A Toddler Lives Here which encourages submissions of photos of the random stuff you find around the house you share with a toddler. It's brilliant.

Kate, of From the Mixed-up Files of the Siegels fame is a library-working, geek-loving, awesome-kid-having, grave-visiting, celebrity magnet. You'll like her.

Finally, I Like Your Face. This is written by my lovely and talented cousin. She is an art teacher in an elementary school. This blog is all the amazing and hilarious things that her students say and the situations that she so gracefully, lovingly and good-humorously witnesses and guides them through. She is one of my favorite people on the planet. For reals.

Congratulations, ladies. Flaunt your award. I did. It's fun!
