It’s my SITS Day!

SQEEEEEEE!

If ridiculous is as ridiculous does, I’m most certainly ridiculous today, because I am so completely ridiculously excited that TODAY IS MY SITS DAY!

That means Southern Spark is being featured on SITS, a fantastic blogging resource from which I have learned so much and connected with so many talented bloggers. I’m grateful and honored to be mentioned, and it feels great to be commingling with a site I love so very much.

If this is your first time stopping by, please take a look at my columns from my local paper, my recipes, and if you are local to the Charlotte, Charleston or Asheville areas, there are tabs for restaurant reviews.

A relatively calm moment in life with the Frat Boys.

While you are at it, enter to win this adorable monogrammed hat from The Palm Gifts. For your summer travels, check out my packing lists made pretty by Polka Dots Stationery, the most recent of which is for blog conference attendees. Anyone headed to Type-A Con and/or BlogHer this summer? I’ll see you there!

And if you would like to see what gigantic nerds my next door neighbor and I are, take a look at the video we submitted to be on the Just Sweat Dream Team for Ubisoft. Cross your fingers and pray to sweet Darius Rucker that we get chosen so you can see more of those sweet dance moves.

Thanks for coming by. I’m flattered and humbled. And millions of internet kisses to the SITS Girls!
