The time has come, my friends, to pass on the flurry of awards that have made their way into the award closet in the last month or so.
It goes without saying that I HIGHLY ENCOURAGE you to visit all these fabulous blogs. Why else would I spend so much time and effort hyperlinking everything?
Newbie Bestie Award from the wonderful Jen Daiker at Unedited
Thanks, Jen! You absolutely rock...and this is one of the prettiest awards I've seen come my way. I'm giving this to:
Leigh @ That's Write...except for her love of Yo Gabba Gabba, she's pretty darn cool.
Wendy Ramer @ On and on and on (and on? how many ons are there?) She's busy packing for her trip to NYC--pity I couldn't have moved my trip back a week, I would have loved to hang out in the city with her.
Shannon McMahon I heart Shannon. She makes a mean Shepherd's Pie and always makes me laugh. And I'm stopping right now before I go all fan girl.
The Lovely Blogger Award from Carolyn Abiad at Serendipity, Christauna Asay of Art 'n Writin, and Nicki Elson from Not So Deep Thoughts
Thanks, Carolyn, Christauna & Nicki! I'm so flattered you shared this one with me.
Let's see, we'll give this one to Commenters # 1, 3, 5, & 7 from yesterday's post.
The Versatile Blogger Award from Talei Loto of Musings of an Aspiring Scribe
Thanks so much for this Talei!
I'm going to give THIS one to "K" bloggers.
The Happy Award from Mason Canyon of Thoughts in Progress
Thanks, Mason! You have so many great interviews and give aways - I don't know how you do it!
This one I shall pass on to....Carols
The Strange Award from Kristi from Random Daily Thoughts
Thanks, Kristi! Yours was one of the first blogs I found waaaay back in April, I think!
This one I think I shall pass on to some J's
Leigh you are single-handedly responsible for keeping Yo Gabba Gabba in my keyword searches forevermore. I'll find a way to get even, you know.
Mary - thanks for thinking of me!
This one, I'm going to pass off to the MEN. I probably (in retrospect) should have done the last award to the men, but it's late and this has already taken a loooooooooooong time to put together!
Okay, my hand is a cramped, gnarled mass after all that linkage. I may never link again. Happy Thursday everyone!
