Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!!

My blog was awarded!!! Can I just be really honest? I'm so happy to have finally won an award. I'm sure that you're not supposed to want awards, just like you're not supposed to want followers and you're not supposed to want comments, but I guess I'm just that shallow...I want it all and I don't mind saying it. LOL!!

Sometimes (I've heard from my other, more popular bloggy friends) awards can be a double edged sword in that they come with a bunch of strings attached. You know, tag 40 other bloggers, make a list of 800 random things about you, take a picture of yourself while standing on your head, etc. But my bloggy buddies know me for the sometimes slacker blogger that I am. These awards have no strings!! Wooohooo!!!

Cynthia K. gave me the lovely blog award and the timing is perfect because I get to pass it on to blogs that I've recently discovered and I just discovered an amazing blog! Now, a lot of my bloggy friends read this particular blog, but I had never heard of her before, so she is new to me.
Her name is Angela and her blog is Becoming Me. I'm newly in blog love. I'd also like to pass the award on to:

Shanta at Life As I Know
She's a stay-at-home mom of three who knits, crochets, sews, bakes, makes jewelry, etc. She is my hero and my nemesis at the same time! LOL!!

Dori at From A Yellow House In England
I'm just totally fascinated with expats

Sandi at Lucky 13 and Counting
Sandi has 13 kids!!! 'Nough said!!

and finally

Stormy at Wonder Woman
She is really an inspiration

Stormy gave me the 'Friends' award. I want to pass this award on to people with whom I feel that I am really developing a bloggy connection.

That would be

K at Interstitial Life
Kathy B! at The World According To Me
Martha at A Sense of Humor is Essential
The Rambler at My Rambling Thoughts
Cynthia K at Crumbs in the Minivan

These ladies make blogging fun for me because it feels more like a conversation with them.
And ladies, there are no strings attached to this award. Just sending some love!

Anywhoo, I would like to thank my very special bloggy friends Cynthia K. over at Crumbs in the Minivan and Stormy over at Wonder Woman for my first awards!!! Thanks so much. I feel sooooo special!!!

  4. Awards are always a lot of fun! Especially the ones with no strings attached. LOL


  5. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! (bowing ever so graciously) :D I'm shallow too and not ashamed to admit it as well. Thank you for thinking of me. I've now had my awards cherry popped. WOOHOO!!!!

  6. Congrats on the award(s)! ;)

    And, thanks for passing some bloggy love back my way. I appreciate it!

    Here's to the continued conversation!
