stylish blogger award

I found this great food blog called Miz. Helen's Country Cottage. Her site is packed full of great recipes, she makes a mean pot of chili, and she hosts a weekly linky party Full Plate Thursday.

When Miz. Helen emailed me to let me know that she was giving me the stylish blogger award I felt a little bit like a rock star. As I sat in front of my computer in my sweat pants and tee...I felt pretty cool.
