Blog Awards II

Hi! My name is Joy and I am a procrastinator... Seriously, I am. I try so hard not to be that way but sometimes it seems that the harder I try, the worse I get. Several people were kind enough to give me awards awhile ago (and I do mean awhile ago) and I am just now getting around to returning the favor. 

I received the Best Blog Award from Tanya of The Grab Bag and from CityGirlGoneCountry awhile ago (as in several months ago) and have delayed in passing them on. If you haven't already checked out The Grab Bag or City Girl Gone Country, please do so. They have wonderful blogs and I know I have enjoyed reading them.

The rules to accept this award are:

To accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award and his/her blog link.
Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you have recently discovered and think are great!
Remember to contact the bloggers you've awarded to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

Here are the bloggers to who I am passing this award:

I also received the One Lovely Blog Award from "Deal"ightfully Frugal awhile ago and also from Finding Michelle. Again I have been a little slow in passing on this honor. "Deal"ightfully Frugal is a very inspirational blog so stop on over if you haven't checked it out. Finding Michelle is wonderfully written and you'll enjoy traveling with Michelle as she finds herself.

The rules to accept this award:

Accept this award and post it on your blog.
link back to the blog you received it from.
Pass the award to fifteen blogs you have newly discovered.
Be sure to contact them to let them know they have been awarded.
Here are the blogs to whom I am passing this award:

I also received the I Love Your Blog Award from Finding Michelle. Thanks, Michelle! I am passing this award on to some blogs that I enjoy reading. Here they are:

The Stroller Ballet 
Of Mice and Ramen
Faithfully Frugal and Free

This past week I was given two new awards.  I am not procrastinating this time. I am learning. Consider this  my attempt at working on keeping the New Year's Resolution that I didn't make.  
I received this award from Turning the Clock Back last week.  If you haven't checked out her blog yet please head over there.  She has lots of great information about how we can take be more eco-friendly in our day to day lives.
Here are the rules:
Put the logo on your blog or within your post,
Pass the award onto 12 bloggers,
Link the nominees within your post,
Let the nominees know they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
Da...da...da..dada... da...the bloggers I am passing this award on to are :

To accept the "Happy 101 Award" I need to:
1. Acknowledge the person who gave it to me
2. List ten items that make me happy, and
3. Award it to ten other bloggers.

I received this award from JDaniel's Mom recently.  She has some great resources for moms and some great giveaways on her site.
10 Things That Make Me Happy:

1. My husband and daughters laughing.
2. Chocolate (Any chocolate will do.  I have a special affinity for Hershey's because of childhood memories.)
3. Umbrellas and galoshes in funky and whimsical patterns.  They make me smile on rainy, dreary days.
4. Snuggling under several blankets at bedtime.
5. Gathering with friends at our house.  
6. Traveling.
7. Shoes (There is no such thing as to many shoes.)
8. Vintage hats (my collection started as a joke and it grew with the help of family and friends)
9. The smell of fresh laundry.
10. Getting lost in a book.

Here are the bloggers to who I am passing this award:

Since it took me three days to finish compiling this list that I started awhile ago, it will probably take me awhile to get around to all of these amazing bloggers.

Have a great Monday, Everyone.  Repeat after me, "snow, snow, go away...."  Another snowstorm is forecasted for tonight.  Yippee. (Yup, that was sarcastic.)  Tomorrow is Fashnacht Day and what would it be without a doughnut run????

Wow, thanks lady! I am painfully behind on my rewards posts... I mean, like months and months and months behind. How long can I go on calling it "procrastination"?

No need to let me know - I just read it! hehe. Thank you very much, I really appreciate it! :)

CynthiaK said...

Hey, thanks! And wow, what a powerhouse award post that was! I, too, have been procrastinating...isn't that the trend these days?!

Oh, and if you wouldn't mind sending some of that snow up to the western part of Canada, where the freaking winter olympics are currently taking place and seems we Canadians can't produce snow for, please ship it up here! We must have done something pretty bad for Mother Nature to decide that this week it should snow in 49 States but not in Canada where the winter olympics are. Sigh...

Anyway, after that little rant, thanks again for the award!! :)

Sarah at The Stroller Ballet said...

Wow! Thanks for the award. And congrats, to you!!

Daisygirl said...

Unknown said...

Congrats on all your awards!

Joy@TPMG said...

Thanks, Ladies and congrats to you also!

Cynthia K-Mother Nature Nature must be confused. She forgot that it was you guys who ordered the snow. I would love to send all of our snow up your way (I must admit though our little snowstorm never happened last night-those meteorologists got everyone in a tizzy over nothing).

Sherry said...

Thanks for the award!! I'll return the favor when I get a chance. Also don't feel guilty about not taking your daughter out very much. It's hard when they're little. Mine are all 4 and up now, and I went through that same stage with them. It's so mice that then can go out by themselves now.
