Overdue Thank You!

I have some thank you’s I need to get out to my dear bloggy friends who have awarded me. My apologies for not getting to this sooner, I feel like such a jerk! I have been in a mood all week, and being gracious is just the medicine I need. Thank you again, I really appreciate it!

If there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s that I never want to hurt anyone’s feelings by not picking them. Heck I never posted the “25 things on facebook” when I was tagged because I didn’t want to hurt anyone by not tagging them.

I’d like to pass each and every award to everyone on my blog roll, and I mean that. You are all so talented, and I appreciate all the effort you put into your blogs! You deserve all the recognition and more. Btw…..I expect to see these on the right or left hand side of your blogs saying they were awarded to you, because they were!!!

Thank you to The Pampered World! 🙂

Welcome 2009!

Last week, my good friend Callie of Grayson gave me the “I love your blog” award. I am so excited about this, and thought I would use this as my first post of 2009!!! 🙂

Thanks Callie!

Thanks Callie!

The rules state that I’m supposed to pass this onto seven people. I’m never good at this because I want to pass it on to everyone. I’ve done this before, and I’m going to do it again….if you’re in my blog roll, please accept this on my behalf.

Happy New Year!!!

I <3 You 2!

Wooohooo I am so excited to receive this award from my buddy Callie, of Grayson: a different shade of grey. Callie is awesome and has inspired so many posts, especially my floral posts! She has to be one of the most positive people I have ever met, and I’m privileged to call her friend. Plus she has a Weimaraner!!!!!!!!! 🙂 Thank you Callie!

Sweet long lost sister of mine, Katie of She’s Lump awarded me with another wonderful award this past week. Thanks sis!!! 🙂

I am so blessed and thankful to be awarded by my peers that I ❤ and respect so much!

This award states: This blog invests and believes in the PROXIMITY – nearness in space, time and relationships!
These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or 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 who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.

These people are near and dear to my heart. Thank you for all that you do! Your blogs are fabulous, and deserve all the recognition in the world!!! Not only are they phenomenal bloggers, but they’re wonderful people to who’ve assisted me, and left footprints on my heart!

Six Things I LOVE!

1) This weather we’re having in Northern California. It was 77 today. I wore a sleeveless dress and sandals. Doesn’t get much better than this!

4) Word Challenge on Facebook. I recently started playing and am pretty addicted.

5) Christmas decorations. We didn’t do Christmas for a few years….a few of you know why. I’m proud of my family and I for doing our best to forget the past so we can do what we do best….decorate for the holidays! It feels good to love my favorite holiday again 🙂

My favorite movie, National Lampoons Christmas Vacation!
