Your Mommy Blogger of The Year Finalists...


Alllllrrriiggghhhttyyy Then.....

Now In my utmost professional manner had in my head that no-one aside from the finalists would know who was chosen until Saturday....

However...as with most first time trials...I forgot one important thing....(to tell them it was a secret until Saturday).....Whoops!!!

That is totally okay...as I myself have an incredibly difficult time keeping any kind of secret that involves making people happy!!!

So Without Further ado.....

but first can I just say HOW extremely difficult this task was....I had NO idea that my two fellow judges and I would really struggle with who to pick....we even past our deadline of Monday...with our finalists finally being chosen Yesterday...and Because there were a couple that just couldn't be counted out....Our ToP 10...has become a TOP 12....Hey if Idol can do it....so can we....

How this Next Phase will Work:

Starting Saturday, you'll see a snifty-difty little poll on the sidebar of this blog....that's where you vote......Each Day...a new finalist will have her day in the sun......I have asked each some very provocative questions.....and links to their favorite posts....


All I ask....show these ladies some love......leave comments under their days....if you LOVE them...and want others to vote for them...tell us why.....

Voting ends August 31st.....Winner will be announced ON Sept 5th



So.....NOW...Without Further ado....in NO particular order....your Top 12 Finalists....
