Hark Go The Blog Awards!

I have two utterly amazing blog awards to give thanks for and to pass to other wonderful, deserving blogger buddies.

First, I know I am so far behind on blog reading--between everyday life, my seemingly perpetual sentence in Singletonville, cooking a Thanksgiving dinner, and worrying about my mom 24/7, I've had little time for much else...other than sleep, which I have tried to squeeze in when possible...but I do believe I'm taking on a zombie-like quality. Please forgive me.

Okay, first award: I'm A Shiny Turkey. No, really, I am. And I cooked one, too (yeah, I know, lame joke).

My wonderful friend, J. Day, over at The Ramblings Of Charlie Brown (Check out her blog--it is vastly entertaining and she is just a truly wonderful person) awarded me this yummy award--thank you so much. *hugs*

The rules are simple: Pass it to 3 or 4 bloggers and tell a story relating to any of the following--intoxication, food, kitchen, cooking/baking, or holiday.

Well, I reckon my recent Thanksgiving cooking adventure qualifies...especially the part where I inadvertently burned up my mom's stove top, rendering it completely useless. Or, maybe, I could talk about the time we had an ice storm in Dallas during the Christmas holiday. Ice storms happen in Texas, but for it to happen just in time for Christmas was pretty cool.  Hmm, maybe I could talk about friends. You know, how REAL friends call to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving. My BFF called first thing at 8:30 a.m. Wasn't (who is quickly turning into He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named a.k.a the snake-like Voldemort) doesn't. Nope. Pretty revealing, if you ask me. Heck, I wish everyone a Happy Anything every year--it's just...polite...and nice...and the human thing to do. Anyway, I digress.

Here you go fellow bloggers--a turkey award for you (I figure it still counts because turkeys are tradition throughout the whole of the holidays): Juliana, Alessandra, Ms. CabooJewels, and Martha

My second blog award comes from another dear blogger friend: Average Girl (Tracy) at It's An Average Life. She is such a sweetheart and whenever she comments or blogs, she just makes my day a little brighter. You will want to visit her blog. This award is called...are you this...The Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award. Thank you so much Tracy. Um, is it wrong that I really want a piece of that strawberry pie?

There aren't any rules that I could see with this one, so I will do what Tracy did and pass this forward to three bloggers (though I could pick everyone!): Yvonne, Jen, and Rebekah

Two yummy, delicious blog awards that, quite frankly, are making me hungry.

Thank you again for thinking of me. *hugs to you both*


  1. Thank you for the Turkey Award! What a great way to start the week!

  2. You deserved both yummy awards! That strawberry one . . . I'm kinda hungry . . .

    Hope you're able to catch some rest so you stop trying to join the zombie world.

    And I agree, I have a tendency to wish most people a Happy Anything as well. And those that don't take the time to be bothered by wishing someone they consider a "friend" a Happy Anything, aren't true friends. You're true friends will take 5 minutes to call, even if they can't talk long. Or at least send you a text message. LOL

  3. Those awards fit you perfectly! :) Congrats! :)

  4. Thank you so much my dear for my second shiny turkey. I'm not exactly sure what one does with a shiny turkey...but I love it! :-)

  5. Yay! Congrats on both of your awards and thank you so much for mine! I am so honored and flattered that you thought of me when deciding who you would pass this on to!! And Bravo! for preparing such a lovely Thanksgiving dinner for your family, in spite of the glitch with your mom's stovetop.

    Just so you know, it might take me a bit to get to the protocols with all of the computer woes I'm having at the moment, but I'll give it the old college try! I'm trying not to take too much time on hubby's laptop, since he needs it in his search for a new job.

    Thanks again sweetie! You made my Monday!


  6. Thanks for the turkey!!! And, ummm hello? Where can I get one of those strawberry pies?

  7. Thanks so much for the award!!! LOVE it! :)

  8. Mmmmm. I'm hungry... *drools* :P You def. deserved these awards! Your writing is tasty and oh-so delicious. And thank YOU for the yummy award!! :D (Okay, I'll knock it off with the food jokes.)

    And I completely agree--people who really care will wish you Happy Tuesday! One of my friends texted me as soon as I got into work with that message. He said "I dunno. Tuesdays are hard so I thought I'd make it a holiday." Haha.
