~In the south and around the world.

In the south we have used the term schmoozin' for a long time... Now I am one?!? Forget the official blogger definition... In the south a schmoozer is someone who will 'suck up' in order to be recognised.

Here in the blog world things are different. (Thank Goodness!) "This award goes to bloggers “who effortlessly weave their way in and out of the blogosphere, leaving friendly trails and smiles, happily making new friends along the way. They don’t limit their visits to only the rich and successful, but spend some time to say hello to new blogs as well. They are the ones who engage others in meaningful conversations, refusing to let it end at a mere hello - all the while fostering a sense of closeness and friendship.”
I was tagged, not once, but twice in the same day.

I was called a schmoozer first by my friend Palma at PalmaBella'sPassions, who knows me all to well...
"Sandi, a southern gal, is always cookin' up something good in her Alabama kitchen. Known as "Bugalu" on Slow Travel, she loves to cook, bead jewelry, and travel. I met Sandi and her husband (Brad's twin) in Brevard last April. She will be joining the group in Montisi next May, so there will be zuccherino in the kitchen at the villa!"
Then Kat who is Just a Beach Kat, also said I have the power to schmooze. Kat has also tagged me with another more creative game of 'Your It'. That one I am working on, girlfriend!

Now to name 5 other blogs who have schmoozed me into submission...
Flip Flop Floozie who has gotten about every other blogger award, and deserves this one as well.

Tut-Tut who likes living Inside the Shell, but comes out to brighten my day.
Life With Cheryl in Alabama... don't be insulted by being named a schmoozer.
Sandy at Dream, Create, Inspire, who has me inspired every morning when I walk into my kitchen for a cup of coffee.
Vonda, in Germany, reminds me so much of myself as a military wife, new mother, and beginning schmoozer some 20 years ago.
Y'all have been schmoozed,

hey, it's nice to be noticed! I really like commenting and meeting (so to say) so many others. And I'm trying that peach rum sauce again today; it will be vanquished in my kitchen!
