A Very Important Award Ceremony, Bring Your Lighters.

I received a few well UNdeserved awards from some bloggy friends of mine and I want to pass them on to some more deserving bloggers!

First one, is from Rebecca Jo from Knit By God's Hands.

It is the Friendship Award which means:

"These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in 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."

So I pass this award on to these fab friends that I have met through blogging:

1. Our Simple Life
2. Inspiration of the Moment
3. Nanny Goats in Panties
4. Ya Ya Stuff
5. Life Just Keeps Getting Weirder
6. The Scattered Mind of a Tattooed Minivan Mom
7. ...Der Go Yo Bizkits...
8. Have Inspiration...Will Travel

Next award is the Christmas Spirit Award. I got this award from Julia over at Our Simple Life.

Rules: You must love Christmas and so must the person you give it to. List 5 things you love about Christmas. Link back to the person who gave it to you and then pass it along to as many as you like!

My 5 favorite things about Christmas

1. Jesus cake! A tradition in my family for years. Christmas Eve we celebrate Jesus's birthday and my mom makes her famous Praline Chocolate Cake....YUM!
2. Being with family and friends.
3. Watching people's faces when they open gifts, especially my dad, he gets so excited over every little gift!
4. Decorating the tree and the house.
5. Christmas baking while listening to Christmas music.

I would like to pass this award on to:

1. INfertile Myrtle
2. 2 Girls, A Guy & a Yellow Dog
3. Knit By God's Hands
4. Cluff Family News
5. The Orr Family
6. My Journey Towards: The Fabulous Life of a Housewife

And the last award is the Butterfly Award I received from Megan over at INfertile Myrtle.

Here are the rules for this one:

Put the logo on your blog. Add a link to the person who awarded you. Nominate outstanding blogs that you follow. Add links to those blogs. Leave a message to those nominees on their blog.

So I think the cutest blogs are:

1. Too Much Information
2. My Pretty Purse
3. Jeannie's Happy World
4. Mommy Matters
5. The Journey to the Hot Tub
6. Tales From the Lunchroom

And to everyone else out there that I did not give an award to, know that I love you!

Plus check back tomorrow for a giveaway in light of the Christmas Spirit!

Awwww, thanks bloggy friend!!! =)

Your comment yesterday made me giggle.

heathersister said...

Well, thank you. I have some to catch up on. I feel honored to be there with Lizzy.

Can't wait until tomorrow.

Courtney said...

Thanks for the award. I'm such a computer-illiterate that I don't know how to link though! :(

Julia said...

Thank you soooo much for a great early Christmas present. It is awesome to get an award! Who would not be happy about it. I may be simple but not stupid! Hey I got to get on this Christmas cake bandwagon. I never hear of that before. I must be in some anti cake eating vacuum in BFE... And your chair, you're going to need to have lots of massaging after picking up all the tree particle infested cat vomit!! Auggghhh that sounds almost as good as baby barf. :)

Karin Katherine said...

OMG, I cannot believe my blog made it into COOLEST anything. I've been feeling like a loser over at my blog...and then this!

Now for the dumb question...what do I do next? Did I actually win? Or was I runner up? Or am I nominated and I have to find out if I win? Clearly I'm clueless. Hopefully I don't lose points for that.

Hmmm, too bad the Christmas cards went out and I never wrote a Christmas newsletter because this is just the sort of the thing I'd have wanted to BRAG about! LOL

angie said...

For me?! Really?! This is so exciting - thank you, thank you, thank you!

And congrats to you on all of your awards!
