It's award season in the blogosphere and I am so honored to have been selected to receive not one but two awards. So put on your fanciest duds and meet me at the Bloggersville Community Center for the ceremony.

Bling #1

Bling #2

Pseudonymous High School Teacher has presented me with the prestigious Hooked on Your Blog award.


Midlife Mama has presented me with the coveted Kreativ Blogger award.

I am truly amazed that anyone is "hooked" on my blog or thinks that I am creative. I came to the blogosphere like most of us, for a creative outlet and a place to put my rambling thoughts and have found so much more. I have stumbled upon a community of friends like no other. Here is a place where we can marvel at our differences with respect and find comfort in our similarities. To bloggers everywhere, I salute you. It is a good thing we are doing here.

As with all awards there are rules and they are as follows:

  1. List 6 things that make you happy. (I'm going to follow Pseudo's lead here and say that this rule comes with both awards)
  2. Pass the award on to 5 bloggers for Hooked and 6 bloggers for Kreativ.
  3. Link to the blogger who gave you the award.
  4. Link to the blogs receiving the award.
  5. Notify the recipients.
First things first,

Six things that make me happy in no particular order:
  1. Spending time with my children. Now that MHS and I are empty nesters, the time with our kids is rare and precious.
  2. Spending time with the rest of our family. We are spread so far apart that it just doesn't happen often enough.
  3. Roadtrips.
  4. Coming home.
  5. Good coffee.
  6. Our loyal canines.

And now the drumroll, please..............

I would like to present the Hooked on Your blog award to:

I would like to present the Kreativ Blogger award to:

Allow me to be the first to congratulate the bloggers listed above. They are all unique and entertaining in different ways. If you see one that you haven't visited, run on over there and check them out. (A warning to the faint of heart or easily offended, Slick sometimes gets a little rowdy over there. Consider yourself warned.)

Oh, hey, thanks! I appreciate your acknowledgement and try to provide interesting content on a regular basis. As they say in my Mom's west Texas side of the woods, Y'all come!

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I've got my fanciest duds on (that would be velor sweat pants instead of the normal cotton) and I'm headed over to the community center right now. Did I say thank you? I'm really honored and truly appreciate that you thought of me for the award!I'd also like to say ditto to your six things!!

Tricia said...

Some of the blogs you awarded I'm not familiar with...Slick Sumbich and Swampwitch. Now, this could be fun!

Smart Mouth Broad said...

Nana & Tricia- Congrats, you deserve it. Your blogs are awesome!

Tricia-I think you will like Slick (when he's behaving himself....and maybe even when he's not) And Swampy has a great blog too.
