Wow! I am totally feeling the blogger love today. After receiving three blog awards over the weekend, I am still blushing. So thanks girls! I am truly humbled.

From This Crazy Thing Called Motherhood (a seriously funny blog about the trials and tribulations of being a mommy)According to her blog, "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."

So, the eight people I nominate, in no particular order are:
  1. Life as a MOM
  2. The Cannon Family
  3. Dayona's Daily Dealings
  4. Lillian & Lucas: Lovin' Life
  5. Another Day in Paradise
  6. The Davis Kids
  7. The McDowell Family Blog
  8. Newberry News

The second award (and a ridiculously cute one at that) came from Dawn over Dawn's Diversions (another Oklahoma blogger whom I seem to have quite a bit in common with).

According to Dawn's blog, I am suppose to list five of my addictions and then pass it along to five friends.

So my addictions are (again, in no particular order and excluding the obvious things like my family, etc):

  1. Pepsi
  2. Blogging/Writing
  3. Photography
  4. Reading
  5. Cooking

And I am passing this award on to :

  1. The Happy Mom Blog - a fellow shop-a-holic with impeccable taste
  2. What a Wonderful World - a friend from college, a budding photographer, and the mother of two adorable little girls.
  3. Stevey Wonders - he totally deserves this award after his designer shoe excursion
  4. Knit Purl Girl at Scrap Paper Scissors - this lady has three different blogs and all of them are wonderful but I am in love with her cute recipe cards that she makes on this particular site.
  5. Suburb Sanity - one of the funniest blogs I have ever read.

And last, but certainly not least, I received this next award from The Happy Mom Blog (head on over there and check out what this fabulous shop-a-holic lady has found and reviewed today).

I am passing this award on to: Dawn's Diversions and This Crazy Thing Called Motherhood (click on over to their sites and leave them some lovely comments - these girls are truly some of the nicest people you will meet in blogger world).

Again, thank you so much ladies for thinking of my blog when handing out these awards!

Thanks for my award! I am so excited. I appreciate you thinking of me but I really, really appreciate the compliment. I'll have to post it next week as I am hitting the road and have some posts already set to go in my absence.

Newberry said...

Thank you so much, Melinda! I didn't even know people gave awards on their blogs--what a fun idea! Anyway, it means a lot that you gave one to me. It has been fun catching up with you on our blogs and getting to be better friends. I had no idea when I started a blog that I would enjoy it so much and that it would connect me to so many people. Hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Daniele said...

Thank you so very much, I am glad someone enjoys reading my craziness! Now I am going to have to find some blogs to give awards too. Oh, the choices to make.

I am just finding Oklahoma bloggers all OVER the place today! LOL I found you through Daniele's blog who nominated me for an award that linked me back to YOUR blog! LOL How cool is that?

And I'm finding it REALLY odd that of 5 of your addictions, I share 4 of them...except cooking....that's just unholy. ;) LOL
