Almost an Okie


At first I wasn't going to say anything because most of you are not in Oklahoma, so that means you couldn't vote for me anyway, but then I kept getting more stoked about even just being nominated for a 2008 Okie Blogger Award for best looking blog, and so soon after my arrival in my new home state, too, that I couldn't not say anything. I mean, really, that's just kind of cool to a girl like me. I'm honored. Too honored to be quiet about it. I'm starting to feel like home, like I'm almost an Okie or at least an Okie in training. Or something. And I like it here.

Just looking at some of the other nominees I'm finding some really great blogs of all kinds and have already added a few to my reader. Good stuff here in OK. There's still some I haven't gotten to yet, but I'm hoping to see them all by the end of the week so that I'm an informed voter and all that jazz.

Of course, if you do happen to be an Oklahoma blogger and do happen to like the look going on over here (and, yes, I had help making it exactly how I wanted), consider voting for me?

  1. I so wish I could! You are the third person I've read today that has been nominated. I hope you win.

  2. I suppose that I lived in Oklahoma for six months in 1986 doesn't qualify me as an Okie blogger. Bummer. Otherwise, I would totally vote for you.

  10. I would vote for you in a heart beat - but you ain't got no callouses on them feet, thar darlin'. You gotta do some barefoot walkin' and some cow chip flippin' and some road apple tossin' and then, then you'll be an Okie.
