**Welcome to my Awards Ceremony**
I don't know if there are rules on what day and when you are supposed to DO this - but I guess frankly - I don't care ;-)
I've never been a rule follower anyway =)
one of the luxuries of being the single mom in the house: I'M ALWAYS the boss.....I guess that carries over into every aspect of my life! (ha ha)
Anyway.......without further adieu...
I have only been blogging since September - that's only really 2 full months of blogging - and let me just tell you how pleasantly surprised I have been by
#1 - how addicted I am to reading your blogs every day;
#2 how supportive and friendly and fun and sweet (really...I could go on forever here) all of you have been; and #3 how grateful I am to be able to share my life with you and thankful that you share yours with me!
So - over the past few weeks I have been given a few awards (tears again) that I would like to say THANK YOU again for and pass along to some of my favorite blogs too =)
So.............let the fun part begin!
**First of all, from Holly I received the Over The Top award. Thanks Holly!!! bunches! I love your blog at 504 Main and also Holly - don't think for one second that I'm not stalking your wedding blog too. As a single (maybe forever?) girl - I love to look at the pictures and ideas and tips on your HipWeddings blog!!! Thanks again! mwahhh
I would like to pass this award on to:

**Next award is: 2009 Friendly Blogger Award
Thank you two so much for this award....
This one is especially special by virtue of name! Thank you Holly & MJ. I really feel I have gained some MUCH needed friendships via blogger and as I said before - I just never expected this much in return when I started blogging!
So I want to lovingly pass this award on to those women (and one man!) who have already touched me (noooooo, not like that!) in ways that they may never fully understand =)
Scope @ Scope-Tech- one of my FEW male commenters (actually I'm not even sure he's a follower? yeah - I called you out - hee hee) Regardless, Scope - you made a comment on one of my blogs about lightening striking that made me smile! Congrats on your recent engagement - and good luck to you and yours!
Allyson @ Pink Flip Flops & Wine - WOW girl! You are fabulous.... you and all your pink sweetness! You are precious and all your comments and posts are filled with smiles ;) I love that!
Life Laugh Latte - you girls are FABULOUS! Filled with joy and hope and love AND your funny on top of that! LOVE your blog and your comments :)Lee @ HH&H - Girl - where do I even start with you!!!!!! Thanks for all the comments and just for your blog in general.... many days you put a smile on my face that wasn't there otherwise. mwahhhhhhhh!
Leigh @ Leigh vs. Laundry - YOU my friend are precious! I love your blog and all the real life YOU that you instill into it :) Thanks for making me feel normal - ha ha ;-)
THANKS to all of you for being my little friendly bloggers!! =)
**And for my last award... I received this one from Leigh. I just raved about Leigh but I can't go on and on enough about how much I LOVE to read her!! SHE is the epitome of "Honest Scrap"
I would like to pass this final award along to....
Candice @ Life According to Candice.
If you have not visited her blog - and you want to laugh your butt off about REAL LIFE - just stop by! I love the topics (you really never KNOW what might be discussed there) and pictures and comments that happen over there. Hilarious!!!! And if you want blatant honesty - you will read it there! ha ha
According to the rules (blah...rules...I'm playing along....), I should tell y'all 10 things about me.
1.) I had very few "girl" friends growing up; ...always been a "guy's girl"... never got along with the girls! Today I have very close girlfriends and I don't know what I would do without them!
2.) My mom and I did NOT get along when I was growing up. Today - she is the first person I go to for advice! She is the strongest person that I know..besides me! ha (Although I AM still a daddy's girl!!)
3.) My biggest fear is losing my boy... not physically, but more so his respect. He is a great kid and I hope that never changes.
4.) I was REALLY mean to both my baby brothers growing up...I once put a booger on a banana and made my middle brother eat it - ouch! I love them both so much and we are closer now than ever! (my baby brother just got engaged!) *proud big sister*
5.) I am probably the most loyal person you will ever meet...I always put others before myself, it's just who I am. I get it from my mama! Oh and I can't do ANYTHING half way; always above and beyond - ALSO thank my mama for that one!
6.) I am more bark than bite!! People get the impression that I'm mean - but I am the MOST tenderhearted person ever! (well - unless you betray me ..snarl....) Seriously...more bark!!
7.) I did graduate high school - but I did not walk the line. Biggest regret...it broke my daddy's heart :( I did however walk the line at WKU last December.... my daddy's proudest day ;) Now if he could just find a good man to take care of me - HA HA!!!!!!!!!!
8.) I have a very hard time admitting that I'm wrong or saying I'm sorry. Seriously... serious issues with both...
9.) I am very independent and can take care of myself; however I hope that I don't have to forever. It's the simple things in a relationship that I most look forward to... my best friend and a partnership...someone to share a life with =)
10.) I love music!! It's so powerful and my favorite thing to do is drive around with the windows down listening to music! It's what I do when I'm mad, or sad, or lonely, or happy, or just in the mood to sing!!! :)
MAN - that was hard.
This award ceremony has worn me out!!!
Congrats to everyone and I hope you all have a Fabulous rest of the week!!!!! (it's Wednesday - my favorite day!!!!) YAY!
