New Blog Awards - I Feel So Blessed!

8:42 PM

I do not know what to say to all of the wonderful ladies who are honoring me with these great blog awards. I have never really fit in anywhere before and to finally be able to make connections with women as great as these, is truly and honor! I have been blessed enough to get three more awards for my little blog. All I can say is wow! I am truly astonished that anyone would pay my blog and thoughts any mind, but I am so happy to know that someone is listening out there and I am not just talking to myself as usual.

First up, Melanie, a fellow mom of of four over at My Side of Life has given me another sweet "Sunshine Award" to add to the list and I can't thank her enough. I hope everyone will go over and say hi to her!

I would like to pass this Sunshine Award on to the following bloggers:
To claim this award all you have to do is make a post thanking the person who gave it to you and passing it along to 12 other blogs that bring Sunshine to your life.

Next up are the Versatile Blogger and Sugar Doll awards. These were both bestowed upon me by the great and mighty Melissa over at The Life of a Sippy Cup Mom. Now, she was a cheater so I get to be a little bit of a cheater too. :-P I love her blog though and you should run right over and love it too. Thank-you hun!

The rules of this award are as follows:

1. Thank and link back to the person who gave you this award.
2. Share seven things about yourself.
3. Pass this award along to fifteen bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic for whatever reason!
4. Contact the bloggers you’ve picked and let them know about the award.
 The rules of the Sugar Doll award are:

1. Thank the person who gave you this award.
2. Share 10 things about yourself.
3. Pass the award along to 10 bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic!
4. Contact the bloggers you've picked and let them know about the award.
However, in an effort to save my poor hand some typing and in following with the lovely lady who gave me these two awards, I am going to tell you 10 things about myself and pick 15 bloggers who will receive both awards. So, 10 things about me:
  1. I cry at everything. The Simpsons, Hallmark Commercials, you name it and it probably makes me cry.
  2. I am totally and undeniably afraid of birds. (Yes, I know it is crazy.) 
  3. I worked as a cab driver for about two years.
  4. I adore Chinese food and could eat it 24/7 if allowed. 
  5. My mom is my best friend.
  6. I procrastinate far more than I should when it comes to important things.
  7. I love to watch Spongebob
  8. I was kicked out of 1st grade. (It was the only time I ever got in  trouble though.)
  9. I can't stand the heat, but have lived in Florida my whole life.
  10. I taught my boys to use the bathroom sitting down and have no idea how they learned to do it the manly way lol.
The 15 blogs I want to pass these two awards on to are:
Meggie over at Hoosier Farm Babe proves every day that even farm girls can be absolutely fabulous! She was kind enough to pass on the Blog With Substance award to me and I hope you all will stop by and say hi to her too. Meggie, you are the sweetest thing and I thank-you kindly for the award.

The Rules:

•Thank the blogger who awarded it to you.
•Sum up your blogging philosophy, motivation, and experience using five (5) words.
•Pass it on to 10 other blogs which you feel have real substance.

My Blogging Philosophy, Motivation and Experience in 5 Words:

"When one must one can!"

The 10 blogs that I will be passing this wonderful award onto are:

The last blog award, but certainly not the least was given to me by the ever so frugal Keli over at Feeding Four. This amazing lady strives to feed her whole family on only $25 a week. How amazing is that? Stop by her blog and see how she does it! Thank-you so much Keli, I truly appreciate the award.

Guidelines for this award are:

1) accept award
2) Post award image and a link back to me!
3) Award six bloggers this wonderful award and let them know they got it!

The six bloggers I have chosen for this award are:

Again, I want to thank all of the beautiful women who gave be these awesome blog awards! I don't know what I did to deserve them, but I certainly do appreciate them. Even if it did take me two days to write this post. :)
