The Award(s) go to....ME!!

Okay, so, I'm kind of lame...really lame, actually. My buddy over at Don't Touch the Cactus gave me an award, um...back in April. And I was swimming in work soup, so I told myself when I got the chance, I would thank her on my blog, and then follow suit by awarding other fellow bloggers in bloggy-land. But, it is now, June 2nd...and that time did not come.

Today, I was blessed with another award from A Lil' Dash of Diva. So, this prompted me to get off my ass (figuratively, because I don't normally blog standing up), and thank my friends for my awards and pass them along. So, many of you are going to get double-awarded, YAY!

My first award is:

The description of this award is:

These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.

My second award is:

The description of this award is:

None...other than the person receiving the award is extraordinary and awesome!

And now...great people of Blogdom, prepare to be awarded!

Lil' Dash of Diva: You get the hearty one, cuz you gave me the Awesome one. ;) But, hey, I can make the rules right? So, you get the Awesome one too!

The Hills: You get double-awarded today! The stories of your boys, and your life at school crack me up!

Green Girl: Double-award for you! Becoming a black belt in karate, living with Team Testosterone, and planting a gorgeous garden that is the envy of all...enough said. ;)

Doves Today: Award x 2! Thank you for sharing stories in such a beautiful way, and many times with even more beautiful pictures to go with them!

San Diego Momma: Dos Awardos Para Ti. You're from San Diego, you speak Spanish right? ;) Thank you for PrompTuesdays, even though many of them intimidate the crap out of me. And thank you thank you thank you!!! for the VLOG or V-LOG or however the hell you pronounce it.

The Things We Carried: Two awards for you. Your entries are so touching, I cry pretty much every time I read one...sometimes in a happy way, sometimes in a bittersweet way. Thank you for sharing your life for others to read.

Vintage Thirty: Double Awards. I just recently started reading your blog, but your Open Letter to Very Important People, Part Deux, had me laughing so hard I was crying...so I am now hooked on your brand of wittiness.

Viva CookeVegas: Table for two awards please. I'm glad I found your blog through Danielle...I love reading the adventures that you have with your boys, and washing your car, and getting half-and-half sunburnt (and loving that you called it the "half and half approach")!

Don't Touch the Cactus: And then...there were 2, awards that is. Thanks for awarding me, and please excuse my delay in response, and please accept my double awards in return for my delay. I love the bluntness in your posts about life, kids, and assloads of stuff (crayons, shoes, you name it, you have assloads of it). ;) Oh, and lunch...need to schedule it...pronto.

Andi's Family Life: Two Awards for you! You are awesome Andi! I don't always comment on your blogs, but you are truly a superhero!

Phew!! I'm all awarded out, how about you?

And if you've made it this far in my award bloggy - I'm pregnant, with baby #5, totally not kidding.
