4 Steps to My Infinite Bliss and One Minute to your Good Karma!

So this whole being a finalist for a Weblog Award... Is so far beyond EPIC I am still in shock!  (For those of you who do not know, I am a finalist for a "Best New Weblog of 2012" Weblog Award a.k.a. the Oscars of Blogging, a.k.a The Bloggies... Like I said, EPIC shit!)  

I really cannot get over the fact that I am a finalist. I mean, somehow First Time Mom & Dad is ONE of FIVE nominated weblogs.  FUUUUUUU....dge. Seriously, I already feel like a winner! But, I am not technically a winner yet, so its time to get my shit in gear and start whoring for votes since the voting closes in a week! March 17, 2013... Yeah, I know I should have started this Angelina Jolie leg out whoring already.... So here goes.

See it could be worse!
