Hey Becky! If you nominate more by Sunday, just leave another comment and I'll count those towards entries.

Aren't you excited about the Cybils starting?! I needed a distraction in my life and this is definitely fulfilling that need! :-)

Thank you so much for the Three Robbers nomination. I figured I'd hit up a relative to do it, and now I don't have to!
