I rock, and so do you!

I was so excited to find that I have won my first blogging award! The title was bestowed (or perhaps inflicted, as she puts it) by Jill of Twipply Skwood. Her exact words: Cute kids and likes to laugh! Plus, you can get to her site by googling "What's going up wassa".

And now I am guaranteed the first hit on the page if anyone ever decides to Google that again. It could even be the secret code for my blog!

Speaking of Google, I love it when people land here as the result of a search. Not only because I get a kick out of the bizarre things that can direct people to this blog, but because of all the many people who Google things like "overstuffed lalakme" and "Bria Chloe overstuffed" and "Lara Neves overstuffed" and other terms that are obviously referencing yours truly. Tickles me pink, actually, to know that people want to read about my overwhelming life.

But I digress. Part of my honor in receiving this prestigious blogging award is to bestow it on other Rockin' Girl Bloggers. Five of them, to be exact. This was a hard decision as I read upwards of 60 blogs, most of them written by women. So, after much thought and deliberation and the risk of hurt feelings, I have made my choices:

Hilary of Pulling Curls. For being my best blog buddy and for writing an excellent blog. She is funny, thoughtful and educational all rolled into one.

Kerry of Curly Girl. Perhaps I just have a thing for curls, but she is quite entertaining. She has an extraordinary ability to find humor in her daily life, which is something I appreciate. Mostly because I can count on a good laugh every time she updates her blog.

Shannon of [Ramblings] Snapshots of my Brain. For being an excellent writer and an amazing photographer. I am a religious lurker/non commenter on her site, so she may be surprised for this little bestowal of honor, but hers is honestly one of my favorite blogs, and it should be one of yours, too.

Kayla Aimee of Tongue in Chic Journalings. Again, I mostly just lurk there, but if I'm being honest, hers is basically one of the best on the net. Another guaranteed daily giggle. And she is a fellow excessive italicizer.

Lara of Lara's Welt. Hers is a photo a day type blog, but she is an excellent photographer and mainly showcases Romania, a land which is close to my heart. She is also a superb person with the best name in the world.

So, rockin' girls. Your turn...lets hear who the rockin' girl bloggers are in your blogsphere.
Lara Neves
Lara Neves

Lara is mom to three daughters—two teens and a tween. She loves to share her parenting and homemaking triumphs and failures here at Overstuffed! She was diagnosed with Lyme disease in 2015 and has been fighting it ever since. When she isn't working on her mother of the year award, you can find her reading, singing, or taking photos.


  1. ooh, very very cool! ty!

  2. Well I had to google it a couple times just to make sure! :-) :-) :-)

    Totally agreed on Kelly/Curly Girl!!!!! I *wanted* to go with 15-20 instead of 5, but the instructions said five & I'm so *obedient*!!!!!!!! Not really, but figured if it were really multiplying by 5 each time, someone else could bestow/inflict the rest! :-)

  3. A fun list. . .off to lurk. . .

  4. People with curly hair are obviously amazing.
    It's a fact (I just wrote it's a fat... teehee)

  5. OH that's so GROOVY!!! good for you girl.. you deserve it!!!!!!!!!!

  6. OMG!

    Thanks Lara! I see I'm in good company.
    You rock my friend.

  7. First of all, congratulations on your award!
    And second of all, Thank you for mine! :) I feel all warm and fuzzy inside that you think my blog is a nice place to go, even if I hardly update it anymore...
    Off to go check out the other girls!

  8. ooooooooooh, most obliged! It's an honour to be in such lovely company! thanks for your visits, for nomination, and for inspiration! many many hugs from Romania!

  9. ps: totally agree with "the best name in the world" :D

  10. Wow-you are now blogging royalty! I am several years behind you now that i am an official blogger. Actually, I never even posted comments either because i didn't know how, even though i've had a google account for years. Ask Joel why we had just got Atari when everyone else had Playstation?

    Love ya!
