Let's Get The Party Started!

Another great couple of weeks blogging and oh I love it when awards come my way.  There is nothing better in bloggyland than receiving recognition from fellow bloggers.  Puts a big smile on my face every time I get that thumbs up.

Just like the last award show I hosted, the same rules apply here.

All of tonight's recipients will receive their awards with NO STRINGS attached.  Do with them what you like, flaunt them on your blog, pass them on, tell us about yourself, whatever you want.  Now that I'm in menopause, I get to make my own rules and after all it's my show!

I was tickled when Erin from The Mother Load honored me with the 2009 Friendly Blogger Award.  If you haven't visited Erin's blog yet, go and check it out! Erin is the mother of twin girls and I guarantee you, there is never a dull moment at her place!



I would like to pass this lovely award on to Kalynn of Kacklin' with KaLynn.  Check out her blog the minute you get the chance,  always something interesting and KaLynn is full of surprises!


I get a real kick out of Zenmom and was tickled to receive the From Me To You Award from her.  Who doesn't appreciate a pretty bouquet of flowers and I can tell you, I never get them from hubby!  If you aren't already following Zenmom, here is her link,  Zen and the Art of Motherhood.  She is funny and clever and worth the visit!






I can't think of anyone I would rather give a bouquet of flowers to than my sister Bev at Theological Musings.  If you love New Age and exploring your Spiritual side, Bev has a very thought provoking blog. Always on my list to check out the minute I see a new post.  Sure hope this bouquet makes up for at least a little of the trauma you have endured for being my sister!

Bev has a fantastic sense of humor and I hope I can convince her to let loose some of it by doing a few guest posts for me!  I'll let you know if I can talk her into it, might take a bottle of wine or two but well worth it if I can get her to play along!


Tara at The Life of a Newly Wife thought I deserved to be recognized with the Kreative Blogger Award, I love the pretty roses on this one, thanks Tara and I hope everyone will take a few minutes to visit Tara and see what she's been up to!






This lovely award will be passed on to Anita of Beyond the Diapers and Spills.  I love her thoughtful posts and she gives the best comments.  Make sure to check her out and don't be shy about pressing that follow button while you are there or while visiting any of the gals mentioned today!

It was so cool to receive the Lemonade Award three times!  F 8 Has It,  Noelle of Elastic Waistbands and Comfortable Shoes and Lisaloo at One Step at a Time all honored me with this award and I hope if you are not already following these gals that you'll jump over and check out their blogs!






This lovely little gem will be passed on to Respectfully Yours of  Here Is What I Think.  I'm proud to say that she is a fellow Canadian and so hilarious.  Definitely someone who has learned to make lemonade from lemons!  Witty, charming, clever and oh so funny.  Please check her out, I promise you will be laughing out loud!

Another cool award I received is the Kacklin' with KaLynn and if you haven't discovered KaLynn, go check her out.  Want to Kackle?  Don't let those leggings and broom scare you off, go on over! By the way KaLynn, I'm loving the boots!






And lastly, Maureen of Island Roar honored me with the Best Blog Award! BTW, if you haven't been over to Maureen's place, be sure to click on the link and check out what's shaking!

Who wouldn't blush when receiving this little beauty!  Love the recognition and like I said before, nothing better than getting that thumbs up from my blogging buddies!



Lee, I know you have this a gazillion times but you really do have the best blog!  Love reading your posts and I check for them the minute I get that morning cup of java poured!  How else could I manage to get near the top of your comment page on a regular basis?  I want you to accept this award and just do whatever you want with it. After all, you are the Queen and here is one more jewel for your crown!  BTW, if any of you don't know Lee, check out her blog Hormones Headaches and Hot Flashes and be sure to click that follow button.  I promise you will thank me!!!

And that wraps up another terrific award show.

Turn down the lights, pour yourselves a drink, crank up the tunes and let's dance!

Deb, what a nice surprise this morning when I did a quick check-in!
Congratulations on all your well-deserved awards, and for being a sweetheart by passing one on to me and the others!
Blogging has become so much fun for me; and I know you and the others can say the same.
I've been busy all day, and have somewhat of a full day tomorrow, too, but I know that I will find time to check out some of the ladies you awarded. A couple of them have visited me already!
Everyone is so different, but yet we all have this "thing" in common.
I'm a little pokey, but my awards will get posted soon. Thank you! :)
