Dance For Joy

OMG I am soooo happy right now :)

Yesterday I was actually almost devastated ... I saw two posts go up regarding certain blogs being finalists for the SA Blog Awards. I hurriedly checked the the site ... nothing. Not a word. Just their previous message saying the finalists will be posted on Wednesday the 5th (not yesterday!). Weep. Clearly these people must've received a congratulatory email from the Award people announcing their finalist status.

Obviously mine wouldn't be arriving via my work email, so I headed to gmail to check there ... maybe I had made it? Not an email notification in sight. Bugger.

Okay, phillygirl, suck it up ... clearly you hadn't made it this year. Last year you were only a finalist in Best New Blog. And yes, you are a finalist in an international blog award right now, but maybe you just didn't get enough nominations. It'll be okay. The world does not end. There's always next year, right?

This morning, as I switched on my laptop, the first site I headed for was naturally the SA blog Awards ... just gotta make absolutely sure, like any normal person.

I made it, I made it :) I'm doing a little finger dance at my desk right now. Not only did Glad to be a Girl make it, I am a finalist in two (count 'em, 2) categories ... South African Weblog of the Year (the first category on the voting page) and Best South African Personal Blog (the last category on the voting page, a category the Expensive Mistakes & myself worked damn hard to get added to the list!)

Okay, so that has made my morning and there's not much else to say, really. Last night we had dinner at Pianogirl & Vori's ... it was Vori's 28th birthday on Sunday :) Pianogirl slaved away over a hot oven making us a truly delish spinach & ricotta lasagne (must get the recipe!) and a baked cheesecake ... now there's dinner dedication for you :)

@all - thanks guys :) I'm not expecting to win (although it wouldn't go unappreciated!) ... it's just fab ending up a finalist because the blog gets exposed to so many more readers :)

Yeah, yeah, I sounds like a miss World candidate ... it's not about winning, I just want to save the world! Pahahahaha.
