Okay, so being new to blogging, I've never done a "meme" before. To be honest, I'm not even sure how to pronounce the word (I'm going with the French pronunciation and saying "mem," by the way, because my mother is a high school French teacher). So, here's the deal ...

Jessie from Muthering Heights tagged me with this Meme. Essentially, participants tag the authors of blogs they love to read! The rules are to tag bloggers who make your day, make you laugh and smile, and/or leave uplifting comments on your blog. You then include a link to this post, and ask each person you tag to do the same!

So, everyone who is listed is officially tagged (sorry if anyone I inadvertently leave out ....):

Ree - My friend Kimmy introduced me to your blog, because she's basically you. She's also my husband in female form, but that really has nothing to do with this meme. Anyway, I never miss your posts, because you make me laugh out loud and your chocolate cake recipe has become a semi-weekly staple in my household.

Jessie - Your interest in badgers and the way you separate small pieces of candy makes me feel a great, crazy kinship with you. Plus, we each have two little girls who are close in age to each other. And we aggressively showcase our gardens (such as they are) on the web. And, it's hard to find fellow vegetarians here in the South, so it's nice to meet ones on the web who occasionally post quick, easy, and yummy recipes (hint, hint, post more quick, easy, and yummy recipes!).

Kellan - Any woman who is 5'2" and then gains 95 pounds while pregnant with identical twins is an instant hero of mine. Plus, your blog makes me laugh out loud on a regular basis. And, you always make me feel appreciated for stopping by.

Linda - I think you're very brave for leaving everything and heading out to a new place to start a new life. I love reading the everyday happenings on your ranch, and I have learned more about horses from you than I ever knew (or cared to know ... i.e. cleaning of the sheaths, aack!).

Natasha - You're another one of my crazy blog buddies who likes to organize their candies. I love those posts on your son (sleeping on the floor, grabbing his ... er, boys in the middle of the cabin kitchen ....). Your blog was one of the first I added to my blog roll!

Kathryn - I found you on the Pioneer Woman. Just the very name of your blog got me interested in reading it. You make me laugh out loud every time (and you make me simultaneously want boys and thank God that I don't have any boys).

"June Cleaver" - I was hooked the first time I saw your delightful illustrations!!! You have another one of those laugh-out-loud-until-I-lose-control-of-my-saliva-and-drool blogs.

Tanya - You inspired me to blog in the first place. And, now I get to talk to you on the phone every day and read your blog that takes forever to download on my computer.

Wright - Haikus and photos of baby's feet. What more could you want in a blog?

Julia - I floss every day, too!!! Another laugh out loud blog that makes me snort in the middle of the night while trying to avoid waking my sleeping cherubs.

Kara - Snakes and tornadoes and a house full of girls. Sounds familiar ...

Holly - When I saw your Mother's Day photo, I called Tanya to make her go look at it! Too funny!

Okay, everybody! Tag, you're it!!!

Thanks Karen for the tag and for the nice comment - I'm so enjoying getting to know you.

Have a good weekend - Kellan

This is a new meme. I don't think I've ever seen it before. And I don't know how to pronounce "meme" either. I've been told about a million different ways so far. ;)

Thanks for the sweet things you said too. You made me laugh out loud when I read it. :)

Oh i have been out of the blogging world and didn't even realize I was tagged! I'll get to work on it right away. I love reading your blog and am so happy to have found you out on the cyber world. :)
