And the Nominees Are...

Last week, Shanna nominated me for this award! I am so excited as it is my very first blog award! YAY! Thanks Shanna!

The award comes with these rules:

The winner can put the logo on their blog.
Link to the person you received your award from.
Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
Put links of those blogs on yours.
Leave a message on the blogs you've nominated.
Write an acceptance speech in the style of the Academy Awards, thanking everybody’s mother, father, sister, brother, aunties and uncles and the kitchen staff at your favorite restaurant!

First of all I would like to thank Shanna, without whom my blog might have continued to be one or two posts a month, and might have even dwindled into nothingness. By sharing her blog with me, it got me addicted writing again. And, I would, of course, like to thank her for this award, because, it just makes it all worthwhile (sniff). I would like to thank my
4 little boys for just being their crazy, little selves, and giving me more blog material than I could ever actually put into writing. I would like to think my husband, who is understanding about my blogging habit, even if he does tease me about being addicted. And of course, I'd like to thank every single person who takes the time to read this blog. It means so much!

Now for the nominees.

1. Sue at My Party of Six... She makes me laugh, she makes me cry. She is a great writer with a flare for making the chaos of this mommy gig FUNNY. Here is your award Sue!

2. Jenny at Desperately Seeking Balance... She has two adorable little girls and I hope to hear lots more about them soon. But the posts she has written have been fantastic, funny, and I think she has lots of grace dealing with surgeries and such for her little one. Here's your award Jenny! For what it's worth, I think you are doing GREAT with everything that's been thrown your way. AND your writing is awesome!

3. Crisa at Dear Lord... Two kids, lots of humor, and great ideas for crafts that she has done with and for her kids. Crisa is another great blogger that I rush right over everytime I see that there has been a new post! And here is your award Crisa...

4. Kellan at On the Upside... I'm so glad I found this blog! Always fun, always uplifting! I love her positive spin on life and all the awesome stories about her family! Kellan, here is your award!

5. Caroline at Take Two... This is Shanna's niece and I LOVE that she has a blog. I think it is toooo much fun and hope she posts more soon!

6. I am probably not supposed to do this, but I just can't see how I can do this and NOT give Shanna the award again... You don't have to do the nominees and all that again... But Shanna, your blog is awesome! Your kids are awesome! YOU are awesome... so here you go, even though you already have one!

7. And, I know she has not a clue who I am, and her blog has already received countless awards, but I have to extend this award to Tootsie Farklepants at Vintage 30. I love to laugh and I can't remember a post over there that doesn't make me giggle, and even spit out my diet coke laugh out loud.

Whew, that took FOREVER! Thanks again to Shanna for the nomination!
