I love my blog friends...

...and one of these days, I'm going to get around to writing about why I love to blog. But not today...for now I want to shout about my new awards!!!!! Yay!!! This makes my week because I know that even though I posted some lame little message, somebody, somewhere read it and passed an award on to me:-) The Blogger Buddy Award came from JenJen at GottaLoveMom. She is just precious and if you visit her blog, you'll see what I mean. She has 4 beautiful children that she clearly adores and this shows all the way through her blog. I hope someone other than me has realized what a gifted writer AND photographer she is and gives her a book deal...and I will be first in line to buy it:-) Thanks JenJen!

I would like to pass this award on to these friends:
1. Connie @ Tales From the Fridge
2. Carie @ The Life of Carie
3. Lydia @ Lydia Oh Lydia
4. Ronda @ Stella's Mom
5. Peace, Love & Cupcakes

...and the other cool award I got was the Queen of Awe-Summm award from Helene at How to Survive Life in the Suburbs. (How cute is that?) Anyway, Helene never fails to lift my spirits when I read her blog. She is truly the "Awesummm" one! Thank you so much, Helene!

So here are the awe-summm rules:

1.List seven things that make you awe-summm.
2.Pass the award on to seven bloggers you love.
3.Tag those bloggers to let them know that they are now Queens of All Things Awe-Summm.
4.Don't forget to link to the queen that tagged you.
5.If you would like, copy the pic and put it on your sidebar so everyone knows that you're a queen.

7 Reasons why I am Awe-Summ...or at least I hope these make me Awe-summ.

1. I am raising 2 girls in a very mixed-up world...and they are truly awesome!!!

2. I love animals and would rescue every one if I could. (well, almost every one:-)

3. Being a dreamer, I encourage others with their dreams rather than rain all over them. Enough people do that!:-)

4. People say I am very creative. I think they exaggerate but...thank you:-)

5. I am very if you are hurting, I am too.

6. I am good at "nesting"...creating and decorating a warm home for my family.

7. While I can afford to shop at nice stores...and sometimes do...I love to shop at thrift stores and bring old (or should I say vintage) things back to life.

Well, that's it. I'm sure I'll read this and say I could have done better but at 2;45 in the morning (can't sleep) it's the best I have:-)

I am passing this on to my Awe-Summm buddy, Pink Martini. If you have not visited her blog, you're missing out so visit...and follow this very cool lady:-)

And I am also passing this on to my friends who have not yet received it. I know I have many new bloggers following me. Please, please, please know that you are truly awesome and I want you to have this award:-)


  1. Congrats on your awards!!! Have a wonderful Sunday!!!

  2. I can see by visiting your blog that you really deserve these awards!!!
    We have two things in common...Im a such a sensitive person that I even want to help others I don't even know, and Im a nester too...always trying to come up with the next great way to make my home warm and inviting! :)
    Thank you for visiting me...I appreciate it so much!

  5. Thanks so much! Aren't you sweet!

  6. So glad you enjoyed getting your award! Love your list. I was amazed at how hard it was to come up with list of "awesomeness"! I think any Mom raising babies in this crazy world deserves a big ol pat on the back.
