A veritable outpouring of love

I have some awesome bloggy friends who have been so sweet to pass along some very sweet awards to lil' ol' me. Thank you! I'm touched. And now to show off my goodies, mwahaha!

The incomparably talented Three Under Two at Lit and Laundry was kind enough to bestow this on me:

The rules ask that we link to the giver, link to the original post here, and pass it along to 5 more bloggers. So here goes:

1) Ronnica at Tale of a Kansas Girl

2) Laura C at Laura's Mommy Journal

3) Theresa at Boston Dish

4) Snickollet

5) WriterDad


Bloggy award number two, from the very sweet and wonderfully prolific poster Melodie at Me & My Girls:

I'm not sure how creative I am, though my spelling is certainly kreativ from time to time!

I have to list six things that make me happy, and then pass the award along to six more bloggers. So, here goes...

Six Things that Make Me Happy:

1) My family: TK, the boys, parents, grandparent, siblings, all of them.

2) Reese's Peanut Butter cups (darn this Halloween candy! And how come the wii fit doesn't have "Halloween candy" as one of the choices when you have to explain why you've gained weight?)

3) Good books

4) Friends

5) Crisp, cold, sunny days like today

6) Heroes (yay Mondays!)

Okay, some of that was a bit shallow. Ah well! Now to pass it along:

1) Nancy at The Zimmer Zoo

2) Epicurean at Joie de Manger

3) Goddess in Progress

4) Amnesia at Loss of Memory

5) American in Norway

6) Mary Ellen at Snacks, Please


And last but not least, another award from a fun and unbelievably prolific poster (gosh, I struggle for NaBloPoMo to post once a day, where do you get the ideas for multiple posts a day???), Nancy at The Zimmer Zoo. Thank you Nancy, even if it took me weeks to post this!


The award is written in Portuguese. Since I only know a little bit of Portuguese, I’m going to have to trust that this is an accurate description of it. ;)

The Snazzy Blog Award

This blog invests and believes the PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships!

These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.

Can I tell you how much I love that it's "cleverly-written" text? Well, here goes the awarding:

1) Three Under Two at Lit and Laundry

2) Melodie at Me & My Girls

3) Two Moms and A Baby

4) Giovanna at Giovanna Diaries

5) VP of Domestic Affairs

6) Rhonda at Hannah & Sophie: Watch Us Grow

7) Multiple Madness

8) Epicurean at Joie de Manger




Current NaNo Word Count: 39,404. I know, I didn't make it to 40k last night. But I did watch Heroes, so it was a fair trade.

Current NaNo Attitude: Starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel! I'm hoping to reach 50k by the end of this weekend. We'll see...

This was sweet - thank you!! Things have been rough around here lately and this brought a smile to my face. Ahh, life. Kicks the crap out of sometimes, and is nice at others. No tellin' how each day will play out...

Can't tell you how special I feel that Family made it ahead of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups on your Happy List! And you DO love those PB Cups!

LauraC said...

Thank you! I will be passing this along once I get over the fact that it snowed here today.

Theresa said...

Thank you for my award!! You are too sweet! Now I have to figure out how to add it my blog! I promise I will! :-)

Ronnica said...

Thanks! *blush* I think this is the second time I've received this award, but I forgot to "accept" it the first time. Oops! Maybe I'll remember to do that soon...

Mary Ellen said...

Thank you! LOL (You know, lots of love...)
I'm in serious awe of your almost-40,000 words, especially since I can't even get my act together on a few hundred every few days!

American in Norway said...

Wow, when it rains it pours! Thank you for the award...(blush) Sorry it has taken me so long to get over here & grab it!
