My Awards Banquet! *edited*

I am so lucky that so many great blog friends out there have given me some beautiful awards--and I'm such a slacker and haven't posted about them yet. This is my attempt to thank everyone--and if I have left someone out--I am SO sorry!!! Please remind me if I did--sometimes if I don't write it don't right away, I forget.

Here goes:

Ronda at Ronda's Rants has given me this little cutie:
He's so cute and he's all about friendship. Thank you Ronda--you're a great friend!

Next, another sweet friendship award from Jo-Jo: of Madness and Blessings.

This one is great because it showcases coffee and tea--both of which I love! This one has some questions along with it:

1. Do you have the same friends since childhood? Yes--quite a few! Although I have newer ones too--I love the mix of the old and the new!

2. What do you value most about your friends? That they're always there when I need them and all the great laughs!!

3. Are your friends sounding boards? Yes! I don't know what I would do without my friends as sounding boards--and that includes my bloggy friends who have been so great in that department!
4. What is your favorite activity to share with friends? I love going out for dinner and laughs, playing board games, emailing and talking on the phone--basically everything!

Thank you, Jo-Jo!!

Anissa from Queen Bee gave me this pretty one:
For this one you have to list 6 things you VALUE and 6 things you Don't VALUE. Okey-dokey:

Things I value:

1. I'll lump my husband, kids and extended family into one slot!

2. My health.

3. My friends.

4. My pets.

5. My Chemical Romance!

I DON'T value:

1. Lying.

2. Slowpoke/bad drivers.

3. If I'm out of coffee.

4. Kids that bully.

5. General meanness.

6. When people are always late.
Thank you Anissa!

Anissa and Susie gave me this beautiful fall one:
And more from Susie of Susie's Homemade --also my good friend, Jen, who has a new blog What's Shakin' that you all must check out! Thank you Jen!! Thank you Susie!!

This beauty:
For this one, you're supposed to list 6 things that make you happy:

*I'm going to skip the obvious husband and kids answers--but you know that's true!

1. Gerard Way

2. Starbucks

3. Payday candy bars

4. Thanksgiving

5. The Office

6. Seeing movies in the theatre (with popcorn and Twizzlers).

Susie also gave me this one:
I love that one! Thanks again, Susie!!

My friend Mamahut from Mamahut's House gave me this one awhile back--I apologize for the tardiness.

This one is Portuguese! My Portuguese is a little rusty--but I think it says: "This blog invests and believes, the proximity"[meaning, that blogging makes us 'close' -being close through proxy]. Very cool! Thank you Mamahut!!

I just got this very nice and sweet one from Kathy of Kathalog :
Kathy has a brand new grandson--Congratulations Kathy and thank you!
And finally, Babbling Brooks and Stitching Mama have tagged me!
Seven weird or random facts!! I have done this one before--but I think I can come up with more!!

1. My hair is now bright pink!

2. I can't sleep unless I have my "sound machine" with rain sounds on.

3. I love reptiles (but not so much snakes).

4. I would like to write/illustrate a children's book.

5. I crave Pinkberry in a bad way.

6. A long time ago I had a "past life" reading done and it said I was a Russian ballet dancer with three sons.

7. If I have peanut butter-filled pretzel nuggets in the house, I will eat them like a dog--not stopping until they're gone.

Wait! There's more! I'm so sorry I left off my Down Under friend, Dee, from My Aussie Antics. I knew I would do that--sorry again Dee!!

Mamahut said...

Look at all of your pretty's! You must feel so loved. You wanna know what I did? I accidently deleted my blog roll about a week ago. Now I read sometimes at night and fall asleep reading blogs, and sometimes I read in the mornings. Either way I lost you and I am so senile I just now figured it out. I'm sorry. I am going to steal your clown K?
