Blog Awards from 2009

I received a few more Blog Awards towards the end of 2009, but didn't have a chance to post them due to so much going on between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Well, I'm finally here to post them. I would also like to apologize to the wonderful ladies who passed them on to me....I'm so sorry it's taken me this long to share them. we go!

The first one was awarded to me by Rae over @ Caffeine and Romance. It is the "One Lovely Blog Award". Thank you so much, Rae!! Isn't it pretty?

Once I receive it, I'm supposed to pass it along to 15 other deserving blogs. Since I've passed this one on before, I'm choosing 5 blogs I've recently discovered:

1. Jacki @ Random Thoughts of a Blessed Mommy
2. Vicki @ Bink's Buttons 'n Bobbins
3. Cinnamon Spice @ Spice Up Your Gift Giving...
4. krenae27 @ My Mental Enigma
5. Verlina @ What You Reading Now?


The second one was awarded to me by Katy over @ A Few More Pages. It's the "Lemonade Award"...which is a new one for me. I love it ~ the colors are awesome! Thanks so much, Katy.

This award is passed to bloggers for showing great Attitude and/or Gratitude (you know the old saying, "making lemons into lemonade"...). Which I truly needed during the stress of being expected at so many different places for the holidays! :)


And last, but not least, I received the "Circle of Friends Award" (another new one for me) from TWO great Blogger friends! Thank you so much Ashley @ After All.....Tomorrow is Another Day AND Rae @ Rollers, Ribbons & Rouge. You gals are the best! I'm so honored to have received this award from you both. {{hugs}}

By receiving this award I'm supposed to list 5 of my favorite things to do...then send it along to 5 fantastic blogs.

5 favorite things:

* Reading (of course)
* Swap games on PBS
* Blogging with my friends
* Spending time with family
* Eating out at my fave restaurants

5 fantastic blogs:
