WOO HOO! Vote for the Dust Bunnies!

You're not going to believe this, heck I can hardly believe it myself, but Dust Bunnies got nominated for the ViVi Awards Best Family Journal!  I'm still walking on air (or maybe its just dust bunnies, but I'm up there!).  I started this journal about a year and a half ago mostly to defy all of those housekeeping and home decorating divas, but the more I wrote, the more I realized that I'm not the only domestically challenged person out there to the point where we are actually the norm and those organizationally endowed people are actually the minority.  Over the months I have had as much fun reading the comments as I have in sharing my experiences.

Of course mine is not the only journal nominated for Best Family Journal.  There are 5 other wonderful ones well worth the clicking if you haven't already visited them.  Hmmmmm, they're probably all better role models then me, but remember, this is a contest for the BEST FAMILY JOURNAL, not the best family role model, so read the other journals, and then vote for the Dust Bunny Club!

ChaseNKids - chasenkids
LorisLaurels - my78novata
My Big Fat Greek Life - derasta
Sara's Days - sarajanesmiles
Where life takes you... - ryanagi

To all of you who made this all possible, thank you so much for this honor.  Even just being nominated is more than I ever dreamed possible... but thats not to say that I wouldn't like to actually WIN.   Judging by the other nominees, I'm a bit outclassed, but oh so happy to even be in the race!  Thank you all very VERY much.

p.s.  My photo journal, Through the Eyes of the Beholder, also got a nomination.

I nominated you for this. Oh I'm sure I'm not the only one that did, but I like to think my nomination put you in the finals. Maybe not, but let me have my moment. Anyway, I'm rooting for you! I love your family.

you don't need a VIVI to have others think your journal is great.  I read all of them.  have for a long time, and I hope to get to continue..............  cost of gas eating into my aol budget.
had to let you know with or with out the award, you are worth much more than that, I never know what to exspect from your journal. maybe a lol, love those lol's, or maybe an AHHHHHHH, or a AWWWWWWWWWWW, sometimes you have even gotten me to sob, once from loling so hard I did pee my pants, maybe I should delete the last line, but nonetheless you are defiantly award winning material,
good luck to you and peace to your family, and I feel the need to say a special thanks to the one you are missing.  May he come home safe and sound with many stories for you to continue to relay to your readers (and lurkers).

Be well,

well deserved! congrats madam dust bunny!

lreilly29 said... after checking out the other ones, I have to say I still prefer yours.    You have a wonderful sense of humor that makes me laugh - I didn't quite get that from the others, and sometimes a laugh is just what a person needs to get thru the day.   Thanks!

After many months of lurking I nominated your journal.  It is truly the best.  Anyone who likes coffee that much is okay in my book.
