3 New Awards!

Somehow I have not been posting awards that my lovely blogging friends have been giving to me. I swear I had a nice post about them, but poof it's gone. I may dig them out over the next month or so, so that I can hand out some bloggy love!

I've gotten 3 nice awards lately.

From Denise at
Sunflowers, Chocolate & Little Boys, I received this sparkly fun Queen award.


Here's what it says:

List 7 things that make you Awe-Summ and then pass the award on to 7 bloggers you love.Make sure to tag your recipients and let them know they have won!Also link back to the Queen that tagged you.You can copy the picture of the award and put it on your sideboard letting the whole world know.....YOU are The Queen of Alll Things Awe-Summm!

1. I am a great mother.

2. I am pretty funny in person.

3. If I love you, that's it. Your doomed to have me love you forever!

4. I'm a good writer.

5. I'm very crafty.

6. I'm a good cook.

7. I can set up a 10 person tent, alone!

That really is harder than it looks!

I'm gonna send this on to:

Diane at

Mimi at

Joy at

I love this from Carey at
Life in the Carpool Lane. She gave out an "I Respect My Mama" award. Carey did a great job promoting living green during Earth Week, so thank you Carey for passing this one on to me!


Last but totally not least is the Let's Be Friends Award, from Brittany at
Food For Thought. She is one of my new bloggy friends & I really appreciate her reaching out with this sweet award.

"The Let's be Friends" award stands for this: These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind of 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."

So this one's for

April at April Showers

Jessica at Pudget

Carey at Life in the Carpool Lane

Deb at Sweet Tea

Mrs. M at I've Changed My Name To Mommy

Kim at The Un-gourmet

Karen at Still Magnolia

These are ladies I've just started to get to know & look forward to learning more about!

Mrs. M said...

Thank you so much for visiting my site and for the award! Though I don't know if I'm against self aggrandizement entirely-since I do so love when people visit and leave comments, and I am always hoping more people will stop by-my blog is mostly for sharing stories and making friends.

Thanks again-I hope I see you around often!

I love your 7 things! It's so hard for us to admit those things and I'm glad that you are proud of all of that!
Thank you for my award! I'm not sure if I have graduated to Queen of anything yet, but as long as you think so then I guess I'll believe it!

Mimi this is sooooooo cool. I love your list and thank you for honoting me. I'm out of town and having problem getting email to work so bear with me. As for 10 cents of hamburger, a lot of my grans and mother in laws recipes were the same, a nickel or a dime's worth and I actually researched old grocery ads in newspapers at the library and 9/10 times it translates to a pound! I love the old cook books too though and the conversions make it so handy on can sizes. Thanks again for the pretty award. I will get it passed on when I return.

Carey-Life in the Carpool Lane said...

I think I'm losing my mind...I was at your site earlier today waxing poetically about lilacs and completely missed this post in which you show my award and passed me a great friendship award. Smack! (That is the sound of me hitting myself in the forehead with my hand.)

Thank you!


Oh Wow! Thanks for your encouraging words. I am revved up and ready to blog right now. Have a great weekend.
