Award from Northwest Texas…

What a nice surpriseI came home from a day of fun with friends.

Decided to quickly check my blog before hubby got home for dinner.

To my surprise, Dana from:

Northwest Texas button

http://northwesttexas.blogspot.com/

Had passed a blogging award that she had received onto me.

Thanks so much Dana!  I really appreciate it!

blogger award

Honor comes with responsibility, and here are mine~

-Thank the person that gave me the award (Dana) and link to her post.

-Tell 7 things about myself.

-Pass this award along to 10 recently discovered blogs.

7 things about myself:

1.  I always cry at sad movies.  Even Lady and the Tramp

2.  I love caramel much more than chocolate

3.  I make my bed almost immediately after I rise

4.  I laugh at slightly shady jokes

5.  Love getting my hands into dirt

6.  Love the smell of freshly cut grass

7.  Always kiss my hubby good night and good bye in the morning.

Now, the 10 blogs I will pass this award onto: (In no particular order)

1 .Kris at Simplify

2. Joanne at 10 Minutes 2 Breathe

3. Bunny at I'm Just Sayin

4.  Lynn at Poppi Linn Studios

5.Christine at Stonehouse Living

6.Ceekay at Thinkin of Home

7.The Arm Chair Housewife

8.Sheri and her daughters at Red Rose Alley

9.Diane at Diane Writes

10.Chloe at Lheure Bleue at Home

These are just a few of the many blogs I love.  Many of them are ones I just recently found.

You may remember that I received this award one other time from:

Tracy at http://cottonpickincute.blogspot.com/

Receiving this a second time is just as sweet as the first.

It just ‘tickles me pink’ that there are women out there that understand me.

You know, ones that don’t think I just ramble on about so many different things.

My hubby said the other night, “What happens when you run out of things to blog about?”

I replied, “I don’t think that’s gonna happen. I have three things in my head right now that I can’t wait to post.

Hey, if noboby else gets excited, at least I excite myself.

Like that’s hard, doesn’t take much to excite me.

Dana is a new blogger, be sure and go visit her.

Looking forward to getting to know her better.  Think I’ll pop in on Tracy (From Cotton Pickin Cute) right now.  Haven’t visited her in a while.

See, isn’t blogging the best?

Tootles!

p.s. Don’t forget, my B.L.O.O.M. banner give-away will end on Aug. 30th.

Not too late to enter. Click on banner on my sidebar.

Look at you girl, getting all kinds of awards while you were out playing today. I do love your blog and so glad that there are so many others that love it too. I make my bed as soon as I get up too. It is just better that way.

Hi Jann. First, congratulations on your award. And second...thank you so very much for thinking enough of my blog to pass it along! However, I have a new way of accepting, if you will, these blog awards. I accepted the first ones, and played along, nominating others to share the award, but then they began to come more often, and I just couldn't see my way clear to keep passing it. So, here is what I do instead, and I hope this is suitable for you. I take a moment to mention other blogs that I find inspirational or meaningful in some way, and worthy of sharing. But I don't post and/or pass along awards anymore. I do so hope you understand Jann. And thank you again for giving me the honor! I make my bed immediately upon waking as well. My Mom used to say that my bed was made before my feet ever even hit the floor!!!
