In case you haven't noticed, I have been suffering from a bit of blogger's block lately. I guess I have been feeling a little uninspired. I have started several posts that just ran out of steam. Please tell me this happens to you, too? So thank God for Coffee Bean and her 7 things meme. I will not be tagging anyone to do this, but if you choose to do it, please leave me a comment to let me know.

And away we go....

This is where I am supposed to tag 7 people. But I'd rather not. Instead I am going to list 7 blogs that are not on my blogroll (yet), but are still my faves. Check them out.

7 blogs I love and/or make me laugh

  7. White Collar Redneck

So that's my seven things. Peace out peeps. Mama's tired.

I'm so blog blocked right now. I mean, I wrote about trash!

I love Manager Mom. In my mind, she and I are married and living happily ever after. I'm going to bookmark the others you've suggested and try to visit them soon.

Finally, if I had a dollar for every time I said "Get off your brother!", I could retire, enjoy an extravagent life, and still have money left over to establish a foundation!

I'm so glad that you linked to your celeb crushes...I only knew 2! How pathetic is that???

Oh, and shouldn't that picture be on your list of 7 things to do before you die? In addition to Monica, I also think of Erin and Bunco. (*seven!*)

I loved this April, and I feel like I got to know you a teensy bit better. I'm not surprised to see that we have a couple of mutual celebrity crushes...Clive Owen, and James McAvoy - thanks for not listing Brad...I don't like to share him...(Now if I could just get him away from that marriage wrecking baby machine...)

Anywho...I was honored to see that you listed me on your 7 Blogs list. Coming from you, that means a lot. Seriously.

By the way, I love the new look - I miss the "pink" but this one rocks.
