Award Day

It's crunch time here at my household...well, I guess for just me. 6 days before Christmas? How did it happen so fast? Where did the time go? Holy mackerel, it's almost 2009? How could I not be the only one at Hellmart at midnight?

On the lighter note, I wanted to thank a couple of people that gave me some pretty cool awards on their blogs. The Bush Family and Janna @ Janana Bee are really great gals and mothers. So thanks sooooo very much.

The award states "This blog invests and believes the PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships!These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or 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."

And then I got this other one from a really talented younger blogger. I would have given my favorite purse to have half of what her fingers produce on paper. Thank you to Rhiangel at Penpusher. I am truly flattered :)

Here are the rules:

  1. Put the logo on your blog or post.
  2. Nominate at least 10 blogs which show great attitude and/or gratitude!
  3. Be sure to link to your nominees within your post.
  4. Let them know that they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
  5. Share the love and link to this post and to the person from whom you received your award.
  6. The bloggers listed below are truly deserving of the Lemonade Award for having a great attitude. They have become dear blogging friends and inspirations!
Here's my little list of some that I hope you'll find as fun as I do.

Congrats on your awareds.

I agree that Christmas was extra sneaky this year - I think because Thanksgiving was so late.

And enjoy your chocolate.

Yea!!! Thanks for the bloggy-love. Since I am in midst of Christmas chaos (why do I do this to myself every year?????), I'll get it posted as soon as I can. Promise!

kels said...

thanks for the award!! you are too sweet! :)

Janna said...

Thank you for the award love! Soory it's taken me so long to get back to this!

Janah @ So Not Mom-a-licious said...

Um, so how totally rude and inconsiderate of me. I thought I had left you a comment to thank you for this. I think at this time I was in the middle of New Mexico, and if I even open up my email it shows them as read, so if I really didn't read it I wouldn't know. However, I though I had gotten on efrom you and today is THE day that I am posting them adn thanking you! Sorry about that. I really am not usually that rude. I hope you still heart me.
