Spreading Holiday Cheer!

In keeping with the Christmas Spirit, I've decided to host an award show rather than do my regular WTF Friday post. To be quite honest, I just couldn't find anything to bitch about and what better way to celebrate the holiday season than to give.

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

All of today's recipients will receive their awards with NO STRINGS attached.  Do with them what you please, flaunt them on your blog, pass them on, tell us about yourself, whatever you want. With  menopause comes the right to make my own rules and after all it's my show!

So let's get this party started!

First up is Corrie from Just Because My Pickle Talks Doesn't Make Me An Idiot who honored me with the My Friends Award. So bright and cheerful and by the way, so is the award!  Any of you who haven't dropped by Corrie's yet, don't wait, and doesn't the name of her blog make you just a little curious?

This lovely little beauty is going to be passed on to KaLynn of Kacklin' with KaLynn who makes me smile. Need to Kackle? Then drop by KaLynn's place!

The next recipient of this little beauty is Noelle of Elastic Waistbands and Comfortable Shoes. Don't even pretend that you can't relate to the title of this lovely blog so take a minute and check her out.

I received this lovely little teacup running over with fruit and flowers from both Tamara of Over the Homespun Hedge  and Holly at 504 Main.  The Heartfelt Blogger Award,  so feminine and pretty, just like these two lovely gals.

This delicate little teacup will be gracing both the Chocolate Covered Daydreams blog and Gramme's Blog. Both these gals are so sweet and leave the nicest comments. Go ahead, check them out!

I was tickled to receive the I Love Your Blog Award from both Tami at Hearts Make Families  and Janie of Life Not Wasted or Lost . Both these gals are so fun and entertaining so please go on over and tell them I sent you.

This little gem is going to be passed on to Bev at Theological Musings.  I really do love this blog, seriously makes me think and I have always been a fan of anything New Age. Bev's posts are entertaining and interesting so drop by and check it out for yourself.

And I have to pass this award on to Erin of The Mother Load. I love reading her posts about the challenges of raising those darling twin girls of hers. They just turned 4 and are certainly keeping momma on her toes!

Connie from Living My Glamorous Life thinks my blog is Over the Top and some days, she's right! Some crazy stuff goes on around here and I'm always taking notes so I can blog about it. Go visit Connie, man this gal can cook and she knows how to live!

I have to pass this on to Mama-Face of Blog Ignoramus.  She cracks me up and I can never be sure just what I'm going to find when I drop by. Over the top, definitely!

One other blog that keeps me laughing is Zen And The Art Of Motherhood so she is also going to receive the Over the Top Award because most days, she is!

And Lissaloo of One Step At A Time honored me with the Hot Shot Award and I have to say I love the vintage look this gal has. Nothing like a pretty dress and a shotgun to make a fashion statement.  Lissaloo is always cooking up a storm of goodies and I think I've gained about 5 pounds just drooling over those sweets she bakes.

I love reading Modern Mom of How to Survive Life in the Suburbs and if anyone can appreciate this Hot Shot Award, it's her! Go ahead and stop by, her posts are hilarious!

I also want to pass this one on to Matty from Matty Thoughts. This gal in high heels holding a shotgun is gonna look great displayed on his blog!

And finally Erin from  The Mother Load passed along this cool 1920's looking gal of the Remarkable Reader Award. So cool and Art Deco!  Love displaying these beauties on my page and if you haven't stopped by Erin's place, don't wait, she is the mother of twin girls, talk about a house full of fun!

One of my favorite blogging buddies and the first one to find me out here is Anita from Beyond the Diapers and Spills and I wanted to pass this lovely Remarkable Reader Award on to her.

The other recipient of this lovely award is going to be Stacey of Stacey's Respite. Her posts are so thought provoking and so inspiring, I just have to pass this on to her.

Everyone, please join me in Congratulating everyone and their terrific blogs.

Applause Please!

Now with the formal part of the show out of the way, let's turn down the lights, get ourselves a drink, crank up the tunes and celebrate!

Happy Holidays!

Anita said...

Hi Deb, I'm a little late getting my feelings on this post, but from the moment I saw my award from you, I've reflected on how much I like blogging, and a lot of it is because of people like you. :)
Obviously, I like writing, but I couldn't have imagined when I started, how much I would like reading the blogs too.
Even though I had a handful of readers before you, I was really kicked into gear when I started hanging out with you. :)
Thank you for the award which has prompted others to visit me, and the post, that will make me visit some new folks too!

Congratualtions everyone!
