Returning the love...

March 9, 2011

Tonight, I feel like this....

Did you see it?  For The Love of Blogs (FTLOB) did a little something-something about my blog (here)!  I didn't even know it until my sister told me...I think she is quite jealous!  Not about the FTLOB shout-out...but because of this...

I know, shame on me for pulling out my old photos (I wish!)....This post is not about me (yes it is!)...It is about the great site we have all come to love, honor and cherish....FTLOB!  Can I please get a round of applause for the wonderful job they are doing!

I cannot thank them enough for all the great link ups, features, and just fabulous LOVE that they send out each and everyday!  I have found so many wonderful blogs that I enjoy reading throughout the day...sometimes a little too much!

I cannot talk about FTLOB with out also saying how wonderful each and everyone of you are as well!  I  have found some fabulous blogs...laughed out loud numerous times...cried with sorrow...learned to cook...realized I am not crafty compared to some of you...and made some new "friends" that are a little bit more real than imaginary friends!

When I started this blog...I had just come in from flooding our backyard ice rink after shoveling snow for 2 hours straight.  My husband was out of town and I was home trying to get everything done around the house on my own.  As I stood there in -14 celsius (6 degrees)...I had so many thoughts going through  my head...I came in the house and decided to write them down.  Tales of a Hockey Wife was born...and slowly has evolved into a humorous look at my life...give or take a hockey mask here and there.

Never in a million years would have thought my blog would be read and commented on by so many great people...and a majority of that is all due to FTLOB and their fabulous site!  So make sure you head over and show some much deserved blog love.

Hockey Wife Tales said...

Thank you.....and thank you for being such a great support group of nomadic wives of hockey players. You were the first person I was in touch with when I started this blog...and I am grateful to have "met" you!

Hockey Wife Tales said...

Thank you....I have a quick question...how are you able to skip the email part? I ask because some people don't like to put their email address in when they comment, and I hope there is a way around that. You can tell me here (if you see this) or you can email my gmail address. I might contact you and find out for future reference via your email.

Hockey Wife Tales said...

Thanks Rancher mom.....sure would be fun to sit around a table eating cake and Dr. Who cookies with you and the cakeologist! Would love to have some of those snowd-in gals also! That could be a lot of fun!

Hockey Wife Tales said...

thank you.....FTLOB is such a simple yet fabulous site.....

Madeline said...

Dropping by from sunny Singapore. This is very funny! Love the hockey masks haha. Referring to your previous posts, I don't like blogger comments system too so I switched to intense debate =)

laura said...

I saw the feature :) It was fabulous!- and so is your blog- and obvi so are u! lol! :) xoxo

Rancher Mom said...

That would be a blast! Although we may get into a heap of trouble, but that would just make it even more fun! Not that I have ever been in any trouble with any of the aforementioned ladies...

TexaGermaNadian said...

Kuddos to you! And kuddos to your kuddos for FTLOB giving you kuddos :) Ha, or is that cooties?! But really, your pictures are too funny. I am so glad you started your blog, and glad that the traveling hockey wives of the world have such a fun and great support system. If we can't laugh at ourselves, then we are screwed, lol. Have a great day!

Hockey Wife Tales said...

Cheers!

Hockey Wife Tales said...

You and cakeologist in trouble????? Never heard of such thing!

Hockey Wife Tales said...

Why thank you!

Hockey Wife Tales said...

what are your thoughts on intense debate?

Is it true there is NO GUM in Singapore?

Cheers!

Ada said...

Many congrats on getting featured because you should.Your life can be crazy but the best kind of crazy and the fact that you can share it and have a great group behind it makes it all worth while.

LOL! Funny!

Found you on the bloghop! I'm your newest follower! http://www.mymoneytips4u.com/

Hockey Wife Tales said...

Thank you, that was so nice of you to say. I always say that although a Hockey life has it's ups and downs...in the long run we are so fortunate for all of the blessing hockey has given us...but it is always fun to make fun of the funny things!

Cheers!

Hockey Wife Tales said...

Jenny,

Thank you for the comment and the follow. I look forward to checking out your blog when I get my son down for a nap today! I will be sure to say hello!

Cheers!

Madeline said...

Hmm I like tt I can add commenting, which allows readers to add their site and it automatically
Generates their last blog post. But the system can 'hang' sometimes so not 100% foolproof u know.

Oh it's true. There is no gum in Singapore. Haha. But we get our gum fix when we travel, which we do a lot :))

Hockey Wife Tales said...

I don't think anything will ever be 100% blogging perfect...but maybe one day!

Can you get in trouble if you are caught chewing gum? Sorry...just seems so odd to me. I have had friends live there, and that is what I recall them saying...that there is no gum! I would be lost!

Big Fat Gini said...

I had a bunch to say. But then I got all fixated on the martini and forgot it all. Vodka, take me away.

Hockey Wife Tales said...

This is me giggling!

KY ✈ said...

Hahahahahah this post had me laughing - I love the photos!! and of course the Team HW ;)

KY ✈ said...

Sorry if this comment shows 88 times my computer is giving me troubles!! I love this post, you had me laughing for sure and the photos are a hoot! I especially love the Team HW ;) You deserved the feature over at FTLOB, keep up the wonderful work :)

Hockey Wife Tales said...

Thank you. Saw your Vlog today...I might have to join you in the no white diet...I think everything I ate today was made with something white....!

Cheers!

I have to agree with you FTLOB has done so much for my site! They deserve more than a round of applause! Give some love to FTLOB!!!! I thought I would also take the time to tell you that when you spelt my sites name when you where giving me the Versatile Award its Painfully Optomistic with a Opto not an Opti . That's a common typo!!
