Woot woot, friends! The Toque Girls received some great news this weekend. We’ve been nominated for some amazing blog awards!
But, maybe you already knew that.
It seems that we are among the last to know. On Saturday morning, we met up with our lovely friends Malwina Gudowska from Sweetspot.ca and Kelly Doody of Daily Ink for breakfast at AKA Bistro. Over giant quinoa waffles, we talked about life, blogs and other things. Then, someone (Kelly, we think) said, “You guys should tell people that you’re nominated for best Canadian blog. You should get people to vote for you.”
To which Malwina said, “You should tell people! I already voted for you.”
Michelle and I stared, stunned for a few minutes with maple syrup running down our chins. We burst out laughing. Apparently, we’re quite inept on the blog marketing front. It’s a wonder that any of you readers come back day after day. (Thank you for doing so!)
And then, to really drive home our ineptitude, on Sunday, someone else told us that we’ve been nominated in three categories in a completely different competition, The Canadian Weblog Awards! We’re nominated for Best Weblog about Fashion, Style and Design, Best Life Weblog and Best Written Weblog. A jury will choose the winners in this competition and the winners will be announced in January.
As for the Canadian Blog Awards, please help your inept Toque Girls out and vote for us! We’d be ever so grateful. And, it might even help you out, dear readers! For real. If our site grows, we could host more giveaways for things like fuzzy sweaters and booze giveaways. And wouldn’t that make you happy?
We’d be ever so grateful if you could vote for us here.
(Side prayer to the writing fairies: Our dear writing fairies, please spare us from silly grammatical errors over the next few months. Thanks, C&M)
Please vote for us. Remember, this could mean fuzzy sweaters and booze giveaways.

PS – Here we are stunned and quinoa-filled after breakfast:
