Holy Blog Awards Batman!

Monday, June 15, 2009

Did the word get out that my birthday is coming up? Seriously, I can't think of another reason for the inundation of awards I have received lately. I am so thankful and just plain flattered that I have visitors, much less that you think I deserve an award for this!

I owe a debt of gratitude to Elizabeth at Family Life to the Babler Family for the Kreativ Blogger Award. Wow, is she a busy momma and a great blogger to boot! Thank you Elizabeth, for thinking of me :D

This award goes to the bloggers at:
Parenting Pink
It's A Beauty Filled Life
Why Bother?
Babas Farm Life

I also need to thank Chris at The Mommy Journey for this sweet one. It surely made me smile. She has a wonderful blog that I enjoy reading. Pop over and say hello to her.

I'm passing this one on to:
Frump's Findings
Mamahood Among Other Things
Aimee's Land
Mommy Momo
More Than Words

Valerie at It's A Wonderful Life tagged me with The Honest Scrap Award. I have seen this button around, but didn't know the scoop on it. Thanks Valerie, I have enjoyed getting to know you and visiting your blog :D

Here's the deal:

When accepting this auspicious award, you must write a post bragging about it, including the name of the misguided soul who thinks you deserve such acclaim, and link back to said person so everyone knows he or she is real.

Choose a minimum of 7 blogs that you find brilliant in content or design. Or improvise by including bloggers who have no idea who you are because you don’t have 7 friends. Show the 7 random victims’ names and links and leave a harassing comment informing them that they were prized with “Honest Weblog.” Well, there’s no prize, but they can keep the nifty icon. List at least ten honest things about yourself. Then, pass it on!

My 10 things:

1. I used to be a clown. Yes, 'tis true. A first job.
2. I studied ballet (lived, breathed, loved it!) for 9 years.
3. I am and have always been totally self conscious about my horribly ugly nose.
4. I was hospitalized for anorexia in my teens.
5. I have a sweet fang and eat cookies and/or ice cream pretty much every day.
6. I can't nap. Never been a good napper even if I'm exhausted.
7. Before I was married with kids I owned nearly 300 pairs of shoes and bought a new pair almost weekly.
8. I HATED school from day one in K through graduation. Didn't like college much either.
9. Though I'd love to be able to carry a tune. I can't sing. My kids cover my mouth if I try.
10. I have traveled from Maine to Florida & New Orleans, and through much of the midwest, but I have never been west of Kansas City. Would love to visit out West and explore the rest of the country.

Because I'd love to know these bloggy friends better, I choose to pass this on to:
Our Chaotic Life
My Spot on The Shore
I'm Heading Towards My Destiny
Keeping Up With the Kellys
Pak Adventures
The Simple Gourmand

Last but not least, I was also awarded the Friends Award and One Lovely Blog Award by Buckeroomama at Mamahood Among Other Things. She's one sweet mama with a fabulous blog. I love her insights and that she teaches Baby Sign. Cool huh? Stop by and give her some luv!

I would love to pass these on to all of my commenters and subscribers. You gals and guys rock! Wear it proudly :D

Congratulations on all your awards..you are deserving of each one! It was interesting to read your list of 10 honest things.

Lorrie said...

Oh Melissa...you use to be a clown? I'm scared of clowns...even writing the word really took some courage. Congratulations of the awards and I love reading your blog as well...very deserved. And thank you as well.

OK #3 - I hated my nose until I found a cousin on campus freshman year at college...because our noses matched.

#5 and 7...Can I plead the 5th? (I needed shoes to go with the clothes.)

#10...I've been within 120 miles of NYC...I'm still trying to get there.
