New Year's Party!

As 2009 comes to a close, I thought it would be the perfect time to host a party to celebrate the great blogs and wonderful writing that I have enjoyed reading this past year.

And just like the last party with award presentations, the same rules apply here.

All of today's recipients will receive their awards with NO STRINGS attached.  Do with them what you want, decorate your blog with them, pass them on, tell us your favorite things, whatever you want.  My party, my rules!

So everyone, pour yourselves a drink and pull up a chair!

First off, I want to thank Rabbit at RedHead Dancing for honoring me with the You Make Me Shake It Award.  I  love Rabbit's writing style and I have to admit, I'm always a little surprised at what I find at Red Head Dancing but this guy has a big heart of pure gold. You love comments?  He is smart, funny and definitely a one-of-a-kind guy who can point out the humor in nearly anything and just so you know, he can dance!

Another surprise was receiving the Gorgeous Blogger Award from Arizona Momma of Our Daze In The Desert. Talk about a beautiful bouquet of flowers and who doesn't love pink!  I mean have you seen my blog!! If you get a moment, check out this sweet mother of three and her hubby ain't too hard on the eyes either!

This Gorgeous Blogger Award is going right to Sarah of The Stroller Ballet.  Always entertaining and just a little on the edge with a great sense of humor mixed in. Love reading her posts and I know you will too so stop by her place and tell her I sent ya!

From Mama-Face at Blog Ignoramus I was honored with both the 5-Diamonds Award and The Circle of Friends Award.  Mama-Face has a brand new look so if you haven't visited her blog lately, go check out her new stylish digs!

Such a pretty award and I mean face it, who here doesn't love diamonds! So I will be passing these sparkling beauties on to Zenmom of Zen and the Art of Motherhood.  This gal leaves me laughing out loud so go ahead and check her out! If you love to laugh, this is your kinda gal!

This lovely Circle of Friends Award is going straight to Dinah of My Aimless Infatuation and Gayle of Gramme's Blog. These two ladies are just lovely, sweet and leave wonderful comments. Just the gals anyone would be proud to have in their circle of friends and I'm honored to have them be part of mine.

Just what I needed this time of year, more sugar!! Noelle of Elastic Waistbands and Comfortable Shoes, Just Another Momma at  Just Another Day  and A Mom With A View honored me with the yummy Happy 101 Sweet Friends Award.  I love Noelle's writing style and she has a great sense of humor.  Just Another Momma has her hands full now with some bad neighbors and A Mom With A View is so creative, you should see this gal's art! So go check out their blogs and get in the loop!  

This Sweet Friends Award is going to be passed on to Anita at Beyond the Diapers and Spills and Simone at Chocolate Covered Daydreams.  Both of these gals are just the sweetest, nicest, leave the best comments kinda gals. Sweet as sugar pie, if you don't already follow them, go check them out so you can see what you've been missing out on!

I was so thrilled to receive the Superior Scribbler Award from Naomi of Organic Motherhood With Coolwhip.  I've just discovered Naomi's blog and will be checking in with her on a regular basis so why not jump on board with me and see what she's all about. I love the look of this award, so cool, that little guy hunched over his desk, kind of like I am right now typing this.

This Superior Scribbler Award is going directly to Bev at Theological Musings. I love Bev's writing style and I always learn something new and exciting from her posts.  Thought provoking and the perfect read for anyone wishing to explore their New Age or Spiritual side.

Don't be shy about visiting any of these great blogs and catching up on what's going on in their neck of the woods.  Always entertaining and enlightening and while you're visiting, please be sure to press that Follow button!

So now with the formalities out of the way, please join me in congratulating these great blogs and then let's crack open the champagne and celebrate the beginning of a new blogging year!

Wishing all of you and your loved ones a wonderful 2010!!!!!
