This is my Red Carpet Moment

I would first and foremost like to thank my mom, without her, this would not be possible......my husband, for his constant support.....my agent....oh, wait, I don't have an agent...never mind. Sorry, I got carried away. Caught up in the moment so to speak.

I have had an exciting week so far...and it's only Tuesday. I received two awards this week for my blog. That is so super exciting to me. I have seen so many people's blogs with awards, and well to be honest, I so wanted one to proudly display on my blog. Amazingly, not only did I receive one, but two this week.

The first one is so cute and colorful.This is the super commenter award. This was given to me by Patty at Pipstitch. What a wonderful award to accept. I love reading comments, and think it is important if you are going to take the time to read what someone has to say, you should leave a comment. It becomes part of a permanent record. That is important to me. It becomes a part of history, for future generations of readers.
Oh, am I getting carried away again? Sorry.
Thank you so much Patty. I am honored. Take a minute to check out Pipstich. I just love her header, it's an adorable little donkey. She enjoys things vintage, aprons, sewing, and animals...dogs to be exact. You will find her delightful.

I can not even explain my excitement in receiving this next award which was presented and given to me by Sally from smilingsally. This was so exciting, coming from a special lady. Check out her blog, she has a marvelous sense of humor, her post are most refreshing and I love all her "clean" jokes and cartoons she post weekly. They always bring a smile.

I have seen this award on many blogs I visit, and thought it looked quite regal. What a wonderful thing to be awarded such a lovely trophy. I could hardly believe she thought my blog was worthy of this recognition.

This is the Arte Y Pico Award.

What does that mean? I found this explanation over at Arte Y Pico blog. This seems to be the origin of the award. Here is the explanation or translation she gave.
What is the meaning of the expression: And basically, ironically, it translates into a wonderful phrase in Mexico, “lo maximo.” LOL! It will never find its counterpart in English, but if it HAD to, it would be something like, Wow. The Best Art. Over the top.
How wonderful it that? And how lucky I am that Sally felt my blog worthy of such an award.

Along with accepting this award, comes a few rules.

1. You have to pick 5 blogs that you consider deserving of this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and which also contribute to the blogging community, no matter what language.

2. Each award has to have the name of the author and a link to his/her blog so that it can be visited by everyone.

3. Each award winner has to show the award and put the name and link of the blog that presented him/her the award.

4. The award winner and the one who has given the prize have to show the link arte y pico blog so everyone will know the origin of this award.

5. Show these rules.

I would like to pass on this award to the following people, and they are in no particular order.

headcookandbottlewasher ~ She seriously has some great recipes and cost cutting ideas on her blog.

Tootsietime ~ She has won this before, but her blog is a wealth of information for gardeners. She deserves this award again.

farmchick ~ This lady is a delight, she has wonderful recipes, and I love reading about her life on a farm. Among other things, they raise sunflowers, and she has some great pictures on her blog of the beautiful sunflowers.

the7msn ~ I really enjoy this ladies blog. She has some great stories to tell about living among all things wild. You will enjoy her stories.

Lit and Laundry~ Even among the laundry, there is humor. This mom always brings a smile to my face. Her tales of motherhood bring back so many memories of when my kids were young. She is talented, refreshing and you will enjoy reading about her life.

I could only list five, so these were my nominees for this great award.

Thanks again, Patty and Sally for awarding me with these gifts. I will treasure them. You will find them proudly displayed on my sidebar under awards. {how exciting}
I now feel a little more important. Notice I said "feel". I know I have not risen to "rock star" status.
Just keeping it real.

Now in case you are wondering where all the paparazzi are, and why they were not taking pictures of me during my "red carpet moment".
I have to tell you. Someone forgot to warn me and I was not prepared.
Also, it may have something to do with the fact that I am sitting here at my computer, in my gown, sipping Pepsi, hair askew, no makeup, and barefoot to boot. No designer duds here, no expensive shoes, no loaned jewels, no spray on makeup or fancy hairdo. In other words due to fact I was not prepared, I think they decided to skip this ceremony. Thank goodness.


  1. Oh MY!!!! I am so underdressed to receive this wonderful award!!! Do you suppose that sweats and a t-shirt will cut it for now? lol

    Thank goodness the paparazzi are off looking at someone else!
    I am honored to receive this award from you...Please stop in and pick up the tootsie award (you mean the world award...and the love your blog award that I am passing out today! It will be on the tuesday extra post...and the other will be on the side bar...

  3. HMMM.... looks like someone is getting a big head LOL!!!!

  4. Thank you so much for the award and the sweet words about my blog! I really, really appreciate it! I will post my award when I get a chance!

  5. I am so proud of you and I know you deserve every award out there ---you deserve them all !!! You are GREAT!!!!

  6. Aw, shucks. Thanks, Coloradolady from Texas, for the award and those nice things you had to say about my blog. I always enjoy your comments - you are truly deserving of the super commenter and the best art award. Thanks again!

  7. aw yay foryou!! you write a very cute blog! you deserve them tiger! Sorry I had to throw tiger in there because I used so many exclamtion points that I felt a like a tee ball coach!

    but really...congrats! you earned 'em!

  8. It is very fitting that Coloradolady's blog friends recognize her talent. She spends a lot of time, which she does not have, making her blogs a joy for all to read. Each of you also do good jobs, it's she is special.


Sometimes someone says something really small, and it's like it fits into this empty space in your heart!

Thank you for stopping by and leaving your thoughts here, they really mean a lot to me!
