In other news, I was contacted by Jason from http://pocketchange.become.com/, one of the biggest shopping blogs out there. He told me that I have received the Editor's pick award/creative chef award from their site. I was pretty excited about this! So here's my pretty badge!

Have a great Tuesday night, Y'all!
