Somebody likes me!!

Can I get a Woot Woot!!

How can I be sure you ask?

(Of course you would... always tryin' to burst my bubble...)

Well, my bloggy friend Jackie (from My Perfect Little World) gave me an award...

Yep... you read that right so that's how I know for sure...

Thank you Jackie...
You know I lov ya more then Jelly Beans....
& I love me some Jelly Beans!

(PS... She went private a while back since she had some weird stalker thing happen...
So if you can't pop over to her blog to say "Hi" don't take it personal...)

Anyhow... Without further fanfare...
Here is my new award...


You read that right... I got the "A Blog With Substance" award...
I don't know that I am a blog with substance...
But I am a substantial woman who blogs...
so I'll take it!

Here are the rules...

1. Sum up your blogging philosophy in 5 words.

Ok... I'll try:
Laughter... Struggles... Real... Joy... Connection...

Laughter... Because I love to and I want to pass it on...
Struggles... Because I have them just like everyone else...
Real... Good or bad... I just want to keep it real...
Joy... I find joy in this life I have (again good or bad times)  and I hope you see that...
Connection... I love connecting with you...
When I started this I didn't realise how real the connections would be...
I love you guys... (Can I get an awwww...)

If I had one more it would have been "over-punctuation"... seriously... guys... I... can't... stop...

2. Pass this award on to 5 others:

This is trickier...
I know some of y'all don't bother with these "awards" (you're too cool or have too many followers for such things) and I just know I gonna leave someone off that will be bummed not to be picked... Seriously guys, this feels a bit like Junior High Gym Class...

Here goes...

Chelle is seriously one of the sweetest people on this planet... I'm not just saying that, she really is a bright spot in my life, and we've never met... There have been times when her encouraging words have meant more to me then she will ever know... She has tons of followers and sponsors and all, but still makes time to be kind to a small potatoes blogger like me...

Taylor is definitely too cool to accept my silly award, but her blog makes me laugh out loud daily... She keeps it real, she knows the difference between "Hola" and "Holla"... and I can say with all honesty I believe she will be the next "Superstar Blogger"... Seriously, she is the next PW guys...

Mandi is exceptionally funny... an amazing photographer... and also is way too cool for this award... (Do you see a theme here... I do...) But she keeps it real like no other blogger I know and her home improvement projects inspire me... I'm glad she doesn't list her followers on her side bar or my inferiority complex would sky rocket... (Plus she doesn't nag me about the two camera strap covers I owe her... and as soon as I unpack and hem the ends I'll send those... sorry...)

Lisa seriously inspires me... Every time I read her blog I want to fix something up... She is an amazing bargain hunter and encourages me with how much she is able to do with her bargain finds... Seriously folks, her home looks like the pages of a magazine or Pottery Barn or something and she shops at places like Goodwill... Either she has the best Goodwill in the country or she is remarkably talented... I vote the later...

Hands down, Jenn is the best bloggy friend you can ever have... She doesn't always blog a lot, (although lately she has been out blogging me) She is... Well, to be truthful, words don't describe her encouragement and loyalty... She was probably the first person I didn't actually know who read my blog and commented and I look forward to her comments still... Her encouraging and kind words have at times been like rain in the desert to me, and I'm sure she doesn't even know it... (well... now she might...) Plus she's rockin' some cute bangs these days that made me wish I was much more cool....

Be sure to drop by and say "howdy" to each of these amazing women...
(Say "Hola" to Taylor... she loves it!!)

Thanks for listening,

  2. Congrats! You deserve it! You are sooo soo so sweet to offer me this award (also this is where I should be saying that your followers are DOUBLE mine-- really). I honestly only haven't posted an award 'cause I don't feel like I deserve them. Seriously.

    Thanks for the award.

    First I'd like to thank the academy...

    Rebecca D., you have outdone yourself with this one. You are certainly a giver.

    What responsibility comes with this award? I'm not worthy, I'm not worthy....

    Thanks again you crazy gal and thanks for being my one loyal reader. You rock!
