My good friend Shannon gave me these awards a couple of weeks ago and I am finally getting around to posting them. Thanks so much Shannon!

I'm not really sure if there are rules for the first award, I've seen it around but I can't remember.

Here are the characteristics of the Smile Award:

~You must display a cheerful attitude.
~You must show love to others.
~You must make mistakes.
~You must learn from others.
~You must be a positive contributor to blogging.
~You must love life.
~You must love kids.

Here are the rules for the Smile Award:

~You must link back to the award creator. (IDK who it is! Sorry!)
~You must post the rules if you are a recipient.
~You must choose 5 people to pass the award to.
~You must fit the characteristics of the award.
~You must post the characteristics of the recipient of the award.
~You must create a post sharing your win with others.
~You must thank the giver of the award.

Wow, I get to pass on these wonderful awards to some of my bestest bloggy friends!

I also recieved this award from Patrice! I am feeling the love with all of these awards! I swear, I think I'll take a break from blogging more often if that's what it takes for people to give me awards!

The only rule for this one is to pass it on to 10 blogs I love.

I think I'm going to add a twist for my recipients. I would really love to find some new blogs to read, and I know there are a few people who read my blog that either never or rarely comment and I don't know how to find your blog. So if you read this blog and you would like to share your blog with me so I can get to know you better, please do. Leave me a comment with your blog address and I will stop in to visit (and you'll know I've been there because I will comment). I will give you all a week, and on Thanksgiving I will post my recipients of all of my new favorites! Who knows, you may get some new readers from my readers too!


  1. Congrats on the awards! I think you have read my blog but if not...... I am stuck doing this giveaway that I started at the moment but I promise to be more interesting soon ;)

  2. Hi hon! I read your blog & we've emailed a time or two, I think. But in case you haven't made it over to my blog yet, come take a peek. It's called Liz's World. You ought to be able to get to it via my profile.

  3. What a great idea! I am always looking for new blogs even though I can barely keep up with the one's I read now! Enjoy your awards :)

  4. Well, you know I'm here!

    Congrats on the awards. I've got like 5 I need to post...lazy, lazy, lazy on my part!!!

    Good idea for people to come out. I get like 200 hits and only 20 comments. Who are these people?

  5. Congrats on your awards! I've stopped by a few times. Don't know if you've ever seen my blog or not, but come by, we'll have some tea. ;)

  6. i know. i know...i never comment anymore!! but i still read!! congrats on your awards. very deserved!
