Ok, seems like there are all sorts of "awards" that go around the blogoshpere. I see them all the time.
But let me tell you, I NEVER imagined any one of these awards would ever end up on my blog.
BUT, in the past few days, I received an award from not one, but TWO fellow bloggers! Talk about shock! And a little giddy-ness that, someone um, actually likes my lil' ol' blog!
This is the award:
Never, would I have imagined that anyone thought I rock!
I was reading a post by Trista at The Pumkin Patch. She said she had received this award now needed to give it to some other bloggers. I was reading her list - BooMama, Big Mama, Musings of a Housewife - all blogs that I read and totally deserve a rocking award. And then I saw me listed!
After I picked myself off the floor and got back in my chair - I read it again to be sure. Honestly, I was completely shocked, I mean - I knew Trista reads my blog, but to be listed among the likes of these amazingly witty and funny ladies? Who'da thunk it? (As Trista would say!)
But I am honored to receive the award and that Trista likes to read my ramblings that much!
Then, today, I was reading over at Debi's blog and SHE likes me too! Enough to give me the same award! So, I guess this means I have a couple of "fans"! How cool is that?
I am honored ladies!
So, now I'm supposed to bestow this grand award on some bloggers who I think rock.
Naturally, I'd give the award to both Trista and Debi, since I think they rock (and not only because they think I do!), but I don't think that's exactly how you are supposed to do this!
I also think BooMama, Big Mama and Musings of a Housewife rock, but I'll try to go with bloggers who haven't already received the award!
So, in no particular order:
Barb, at A Chelsea Morning - oh my, where do I begin? I felt an instant connection with Barb. She lives in one of the most beautiful states in the country (Colorado), and is well, simply amazing! She's a wonderful christian lady who shares her life with all of us, and she shares the most amazing recipes - complete with step-by-step pictures. She is so down-to-earth, talented, funny, inspirational, and I could go on and on. I can't help but smile and cry (often at the same time) when I read her blog. If you've never been to her place - go now! You won't regret it! She totally Rocks!
Karen, at Growing in Grace - such an inspirational woman! Another fantastic Christian lady, who, by the way is expecting another little blessing soon! I love to read the day-to-day stuff, but oh my can she write some stuff that makes me think! I so wish I had that gift, but as I've been told, I'm just not that deep. So I have to read what people like Karen write to get me to think beyond the surface. Yeah, she totally rocks!
Jan, at Making Scrapbooks - Jan is a fellow Georgian, Homeschooler and Scrapbooker - so we have just a bit in common! She does what I hope to eventually be doing - actually making money doing what I love! She has been quite successful. She is a TLC consultant (A director, actually - I think that's the correct title!) and is "way up there" in the company. I actually signed under her ages ago, but we won't talk about how I'm doing! She is super-talented and super-nice! I know we'd get along great IRL - we have lots in common, and she loves to have fun - and I loved talking to here on the phone! She seems to manage everything beautifully - at least from where I'm sitting! I'd love to be as organized and fun as she is. I think she totally rocks!
I could go on, as there are so many blogs I enjoy, but I'll leave some for everyone else! And of course, the two that 'awarded' me totally rock too!!
