Blog Award party

I have been remiss in my thank you’s. My mother would be so disappointed. She DID teach me better.


Thank you to Pediascribe and Temporarily me for the I heart your blog award. And a long overdue thank you to Canape, What works for us, Twist & Skewer, and the Zen of Motherhood for the Nice Matters award. To Running with Books for the Inspirational Blogger Award, to Meanwhile… for the Creative Blogger Award, and Like a Star for Rockin’ Girl Blogger award.

I hope hope HOPE I didn’t miss anyone. If I did, I most humbly apologize.

NOW… all these awards got me thinking.

First, there’s a whole lot of really nice people out there reading my blog. But I already knew that.

The thing is, I’m supposed to pass along these awards to other deserving blogs.

BUT rule-breaker extraordinaire and Photoshop junky that I am, I decided to do things a little bit differently.

I decided to create my OWN awards. So… here they come… I hope you like ‘em…
