Last week was a terrific week for me! I was so surprised to receive three great awards and I'm so tickled to have been chosen at all being so new to all this. If you read my post on Blogging for Dummies, you know that I'm a bit (or should I say VERY) computer challenged. If I don't link properly or mess this post up BIG TIME, please cut me a little slack. I'm learning!
So now it's time for me to pass (or should I say, TRY to pass) along these fabulous awards.
First one received was the Best Blog Award from Kimi at So Many Kids So Little Time . By the way, if you haven't checked out her blog, stop right now and go check it out! And if anyone knows of the "Sweet as Sugar Pie Award", Kimi deserves it for being such a sweetheart to help me with the technical mumbo jumbo so I can attempt to pass these awards along to other deserving gals. I promise Kimi, if I manage to figure out how to create an award, this one is at the top of my list just for you!
I know there are rules but I've selected five recipients instead of the traditional 15 for this one, hope no one minds, I'm still learning my way around here and these are the five blogs that I think are absolutely terrific:
Gals, do what you like with them but this award goes out to:
The traditional rules are:
*post this award on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award and his/her blog link.
*Pass the award on to 15 other blogs that you have recently discovered and think are great. Remember to contact those bloggers you have awarded to let them know they have been chosen to receive the award.
The second award I received this past week was the Honest Scrap Award and it was received from both Modern Mom and Kimi. Again check out Kimi's blog and be sure to stop by and see what Modern Mom is up to!
The Honest Scrap Award comes with some rules too. In order to accept it you must list 10 honest things about yourself and then pass the award along to seven other bloggers.
So here is my list of 10 things:
#1 I am almost completely computer illiterate (which will explain any errors you note in this post);
#2 I dated every loser within a 200 mile radius before settling down with one of the nicest guys I've ever met (BTW, this process of elimination took me nearly 30 years!);
#3 We had our wedding in Napier New Zealand which may not sound exotic but for a white-trash gal from Eastern Canada, it was a Big Deal (no step kids there to ruin it either!);
#4 I am a white-knuckle flyer who looks perfectly calm on the outside while practically wetting my pants (did I mention I flew all the way to New Zealand and back to get married?);
#5 I love anything 1950's except maybe the greaser hair;
#6 I watch Coronation Street every week night alone after everyone has gone to bed;
#7 I have worn my hair in a ponytail every day since my daughter was born;
#8 I love popsicles and always have a box ahead in the freezer, even in Winter;
#9 I love my daughter more than anything even though I have been spotted smiling ear to ear while dropping her off at Early Learning School;
#10 I have a huge crush on Steven Tyler of Aerosmith (yes Steven, sadly you have been around so long that a lot of your fans are now in menopause);
So would the following terrific blog writers please step forward and take a bow while receiving both the Honest Scrap Award and the Lemonade Stand Award that follows:
I received the Lemonade Stand Award from 2 Toddlers and Me which is a terrific blog so be sure to check it out!
This awards comes with a set of rules too:
Put the lemonade logo on your blog or within your post.
Nominate at least 10 blogs (I've chosen the same 7 as the Honest Scarp) with great attitude (I think this is why I received it) or gratitude
Link the nominees within your post
let the nominees know they have received this award by commenting on their blog
link to the person from whom you received this award
Whew, think that about does it! Raise your glass to these great gals and congratulations everyone!!
