Better than a Leg Lamp

(sorry Leigh, I had to steal it...)

Leigh over at General Ramblings gave me this:

Not only does this awesome blogger make my day daily with her antics (she always has a great story to tell)...she has great taste in music and can take some kickin' photography (which for those of you who don't know, I'm trying to learn more about).

Thank you Leigh for giving me my first award! And like yourself, I have looked on at others awards in envy. Saddened that I was not cool enough, not witty enough, not popular enough to warrent an award...BUT NOW I AM! WOOT!

Part of the award is passing it on:
(I feel like the batchelor..."and I give a rose to _________, because she makes me laugh and brightens my day." Sadly, I don't watch the show, so this is the only thing I know from it!)

First up: Butcherfam...gotta give it up to my sister (soul and sole). She keeps me updated on her kids when I haven't seen (well, one of them...EVER!) in awhile.

Secondsies: Huckfam...She doesn't post a lot, but when she does, she'll make you wet yourself. She's just like that. And she continues to be a quiet, sweet, Christian influence on me.

Thirdly: Erin at Peach Livin in the Everglades...cause she is a transplant like me and has introduced me to some great blogs on her blogroll.

Fourths: Is Rachd over at Life with Hannah and Lily. One of the blogs from Erin's blogroll. This woman has a great spirit. Her story is touching, hard, unbelievable, and basically full of love. She doesn't know me...but I want to know that she makes my world a brighter place.

And I give my last rose to....can you feel the tension...I should give it to anyone who reads this post (cause, all 4 of you have either given me the award or are already given one....)...So I officially give the last rose to Katherine at Raising Five. I always look forward to reading her post. She talks about hard issues, is going through a big move right now, and seems to have this fun-indelible spirit. She is a big deal in the blogging world-cause she has gotten many very legit awards, but hopefully she can squeeze this one in the back of the pod.

I hope you all have had a great week, I am sorry that I haven't posted a lot. Work is going crizazy. But more on that later!

You are definitely cool and witty, but I doubt that's what this award is about! You deserve this because of who you are and because you do a great job sharing your unique perspective on your world. Congrats!

I enjoyed catching up with you and learning more about your husband. He sounds like a great guy, and you should hang on to him, because it just gets better and better. When Dennis and I first got married we had a Dalmatian - your mini version is so much smarter (SO CUTE, TOO!). We were young and dumb, and didn't mind sweeping up white dog hair back then. ACK!

Thanks for thinking of me - I appreciate your sweet words so much. You made my week (and there's plenty of room in the pod...).

Thank you so much! RachD is the best! She is such an inspiration to all who read her!

Thanks so much! I hope you have a fabulous day, and weekend!
