This week's Links Ala Mode- Dec. 16th: I am the IFB cherry on top!

Bloggers! Add me at IFB by clicking here.
 Life ala mode.  I am a busy little bee without the stinger and I want something sweet. It's cold as an ice cream sundae today, so of course I've been craving ice cream like a snowman craves a carrot. Imagine my delight tonight, when I discover my post "Inspiration: REAL Citizens" made it on the IFB list of readables this week for Links Ala Mode. Can I get me a holla? HOLLA! 

I am honored and thrilled to be listed among such a great group of fellow bloggers. I hope you take a moment and read them all, but ESPECIALLY mine! Ha-ha-ha. If you can't tell I'm a little bit punchy from a couple of very loooong days, so excuse my nonsense. I'll be back on track tomorrow, and serious as a mud pie.

Stylish Priorities

Edited by: Jennine Jacob of Independent Fashion Bloggers
Nothing like the end of the year to get you thinking. The holiday season is not only a time for giving, it’s a time for reflecting. Whether your giving lavish gifts or wondering if shopping takes away from the spirit of the season, or just plain having fun with all the holiday parties (it’s time to dress up!) this weeks links run the gamut from profound thoughts. Some of my favorites were how fashion has no age limit and just in time for New Year’s Resolutions, will losing weight make you happier? Of course there’s some excellent posts about fashion blogging, questioning reblogging and content ownership along and balancing your blog with your life.

You so deserve it!!!!
I tried to do a 'link a la mode' but I wasn't sure how to do it :)
It said to put the title'linksa la mode' in my "post" title, and i did, but it screwed up my blog for some reason ?
Anyhoo, maybe u can enlighten me on how to, Zen Master ;)
Also, I am trying to put together a pearls post, where we all send photos of our pearls and do a group post.
sound fun?
we can e-mail each other out images and post them as a group post!!!
let me now and I hope jury duty is being good to ya!
I miss our chats :)
I will get with you this week-end for the spotlight if you have time.

Congratulations are in order. The first time I read it, tears came to my eyes; and that means that what you wrote was written from the heart. I am not surprised that you are chosen.
Thank you for my little part.
You are magic.
