My First!

Today, of all days - on the day I feel most like a lousy wet blanket - it appears that my blog has won an award on account that it "show[s] great attitude or gratitude" - ironic, no?

I wish I could sit here and say that while I am honored; I'm not that into awards.

Ha! I was so excited when I read that Ginny Marie bestowed this beauty upon me that I nearly peed on myself (nearly being the operative word), ran downstairs (where my husband was innocently enjoying his Saturday) jumping up and down screeching about how someone really likes my blog - the dog was jumping up and down with me, barking right along with my squeals - and what did he have to say? Well, that's not important. The important thing is that I then phoned my Mom and MIL and friends and they all seemed ... ok, you get the point.

This is so amazing because I have something like six readers - what are the odds that I would win anything? Much less an award.

Here are the rules for receiving this award, aptly called the "When Life Gives you Lemons":

  1. Post the logo on your blog.
  2. Nominate at least 10 blogs that show great attitude or gratitude.
  3. Link to the nominees within your blog post.
  4. Notify the recipients of the award by commenting on their blog.
  5. Share the love and link back to the person from whom you received your award.
Here are my nominees to receive this:

(shoot, Ginny, you took Shangrila!)
1. Casey at Half as Good as You
2. Keely at The Un-Mom
3. Nadine at Just Being Me
4. The Stiletto Mom at The Stiletto Mom
5. Jen at The Steenky Bee
(an honorary one to Jen at Sprite's Keeper - its only honorary bc i see no awards on your blog so you must be very modest- i can't imagine why you wouldn't have a ton of them already!)

You are some of the best people to stalk all day long on the internet because of your great attitudes and warm bloggy-friendship (that sounds like a drink: warm bloggy friendship). Thanks, guys... (I'm beaming at you!)

Ok, that's only five. But small parties are the best ones aren't they?

Hahahahaha...I'm glad the dog was willing to celebrate with you! I got much the same reaction the first time I got an award, except my dog is a lazy 38 lb pug who just didn't want to join in my celebration at all!

Congrats and thanks! I'll work it into a post at some point...I'd tell you I'd post it in my sidebar but I have no idea how to do that!

Sheila's so awesome.

Ginny Marie said...

I can't believe this is your first award...I love your blog!

Casey said...

Woohoo, congrats on the award and thanks for passing it on to me! I remember my first award like it was yesterday, I was so stinkin giddy. I had a similar reaction when nobody in real life cared about my new found glory.

Thanks again for the award, it was a nice surprise! Sorry it took me so long to come get it, we had a busy weekend of entertaining...

Nadine said...

Thank you so much for the award. You are so very sweet. Congratulations for winning. You are certainly deserving.

I love coming here and I'm sure you have more than 6 readers. Many people read, very few comment. If you think that for every 1 comment you get 10 people read your blog on a regular basis.

Wow! Congrats! I didn't even know that you could get blog awards. One day they may have an award show called "The Bloggies" and you can walk the red carpet.

Hi - Just found you blog and I love it. I'm sort of a newbie blogger myself. I was so excited when I found out I had "followers" It was very exciting so I am also jumping up and down for you...because, you know - I feel your excitement girlfriend!

I was given an award a while back and I wanted to post it on my blog- but I couldn't figure out how to link to the other blogs...and I still haven't figured it out. How totally lame is that????
