In Honor of Easter Weekend!


What a perfect time to share the support and awards that everyone has been so sweet to pass along to me and I admit, I'm getting behind in saying "Thank You". Being recognized by other bloggers will always put a big smile on my face so please take a moment, visit these terrific bloggers, take a look around their place say "Hello".

And rather than hand them out one by one, in honor of our long weekend, anyone who wants to snag any or all of these awards today can BUT only after doing the following:

Stand up;
Clap five times;
Jump up and down three times;
Spin around three times;
Do five hula rotations;
Shout "Holy F-ing Monkey Balls" (this is only required for award #5)
Take a bow
Sit down, and then

FOLLOW each and every one of these great blogs

From Traci of 38 and GrowingNew Mom Over 40 (to be)Susan of Just Me And My Thoughts and Kiss Keep It Simple Sister I received the Sunshine Award and I can tell you that after the long Winter we've had, I'm happy to have it!


From GunDiva and Debbiedoos Loves Livin in the Carolinas I received the Beautiful Blogger Award and what a nice pat on the back that was - twice!


From Boobies Babies and a Blog I received the One Lovely Blog Award with all these pretty pink roses. I'm just getting to know this gal and I can tell you, she's good people and you want her on your blog roll!


From New Mom Over 40 (to be) I received the Best Blog Comment Award, Wow! Who knew?! She's a real sweetie so pay her a visit.


Tina,  Kat, and Heather all honored me with the prestigious Holy F-ing Monkey Balls Award which I have to admit, is my favorite new expression.  Just wish I had known this little "saying" when I found out I was pregnant at the age of 44!


And Susan at Just Me and My Thoughts honored me with the Sweet Friends Award and oh those cupcakes look delicious!


Linda of The Good,The Bad,The Worse gave me The Circle of Friends Award and I can tell you, this gal is a riot and I'm so honored to be included in her gang any day. 


From Suzicate of The Water Witch's Daughter I received The Golden Cup Award.  Talk about an honor! Kind of makes me feel like I ran a race or did something athletic for a change!



So everyone, please grab whichever award here catches you eye or makes you smile.  And don't forget to do the little dance number above to make it legal.

Happy Easter Everyone!

Hope you have a wonderful time with your family and if not, just think of the blogging material you'll have!

How can you go wrong with a phrase that includes the words monkey and balls?

My son's new favorite thing to do is look at me and say, "Shush, monkey." I'm guess it's from a TV show.

Jessica said...

I'll have you know, I honestly wasn't going to take any awards, but then I saw the Holy F-ing Monkey Balls!!, and I kid you not; I did all of the requirements without even thinking about it, I was so excited.
In fact, I'm still doing the hula and clapping.

My husband is about to get out the straight jacket.

AND .. I am SOOO miffed off about that blog stealing witch! Holy steam out the ears!
I just got back from MyFreeCopyright.

Who does that .. SERIOUSLY?! She better drop out of bloggy land, because if I ever come across her, I'll spam her right into obscurity and shame her for eternity.
I am floored. And THAT is hard for someone to do to me.
Good on you for bringing it to our attention.
HOLY F-ING MONKEY BALLS INDEED!!!
