Its Award Time Here At GATAB!
Phew! That was one seriously busy holiday weekend! The temps were up in the 90's with humidity to match, but I swore that after the long frigid Winter we had, I was NOT going to complain about the heat this Summer... Mr B and I did make some headway around here in our slightly late Summer preparations, so it was good all around. OK.... Let's move on to some happy, happy news, shall we?
Yay! I've been given the very lovely "Good Blogger ~ Pay It Forward Award", by one of my bestest blog buddies, The Frisky Virgin! I'm so thrilled that she chose me as one of the people she wanted to pass this on to!
If you don't already know FV, you really must go and pay her a visit. She's a sweet southern chick with a mighty sassy streak and she's a devoted (and I mean devoted) sports fan when it comes to all of her home state's teams! She's an accomplished slayer of all myths about single girls and she rocks it every time.
Her blog is warm, funny and smart, but is also serious and socially conscious when the circumstances call for it. This Texas truly gal has a heart as big as the state she hails from! So stop by and say Hey! to my BBF Frisky, real soon. I promise... You'll be so glad you did!
So.... On to the hard part. As much as I love receiving them, I'm always a little anxious when I'm given a blog award. As with all awards, there are rules that come with them:
1) Name the Blogger who gave you the award. (see top of post)
2) Link to their blog. (also, see top of post)
3) Pay it forward to 5 Bloggers.
OK... So, number 3 is the part that tends to make me a little anxious. I have such a hard time deciding who to pass them on to. Not because I can't think of anyone who is deserving... Quite the contrary, actually. I have many dear friends here in the blogosphere, and it can be extremely difficult to choose just a few to pass an award on to.... That being said, my friend Frisky handled it so well that I'm going to steal her approach. (I don't think she'll mind) So, here's the deal. I've chosen 5 great blog friends that I'm listing here, but because I love you all so very much, I'm respectfully putting this award out there for everyone!
The 5 bloggers that I'm passing this on to... (in alphabetical order by their first name)
Cheri at Cheri Quite Contrary
Liza at Middle Passages
Mary at Food Floozie
Shawn at The Beckers
Sue at Aeracura ~ A Blossoming Life
Please take a few minutes to pop in and visit these 5 lovely ladies when you get a chance. They're some of the nicest people you'd ever want to meet and they've all been super-duper blog friends to me. Let them know I sent ya! Using my name might not win you a big fancy prize, but it will win you some fantastic new friends! I guarantee it! :~)
