I'm trying to be better at this!

Y'all know what an award slacker I tend to be...always flattered to be selected, but lazy when it comes to posting and passing them on! So...I'm trying to be better!

First up, I was honored to receive the following award from Shortmama. I love that girl...she is funny, and true to herself and her beliefs, and if you've never visited her, well, you really need to!

There aren't any particular rules to this award...so I'm just going to pass it along to Kari at U Create. It really is the Best Blog for amazing ideas and tutorials. She trolls through blogland and when she see's something awesome...she blogs about it and directs you to the blog where she found it. I have gotten so many amazing ideas from this awesome blog!

And I have to also pass this to my adorable friend JennyKate. She seriously rocks. She shares my deep and abiding love for NKOTB, and that is just the beginning of her awesomeness. I'm giving her this award because I LOVE and MISS reading her blog! Her posts are getting too few and far between, and I'm hoping this will bully her into posting more often, because she truly is hilarious and adorable!

Next up, Christie from The Kings gave me the Splash Award. I love Christie's blog. It's about life with just her and her little boy, who is seriously The. cutest. kid. ever. I'm not kidding...go check her out!

The Splash Award is given to alluring, amusing, bewitching, impressive, and inspiring blogs. I'd like to pass this award to Amanda at Imperfectly Beautiful, and Shawn at Seriously . Amanda's blog is so alluring, almost making me believe I could make beautiful things and make my home a lovely place to be. Her ambition and ability to visualize something and then make it a reality is so impressive. You really need to go check her out if you haven't before. If any of you know Shawn, well you know how amusing AND bewitching she is...I just love her! If you want to laugh out loud, and wish you were in Florida hanging with a cool chick go read her blog!

Next up, I received the following award from MiMi at Living in France. MiMi has got to be one of my favorite people I have met through blogging. I feel like I know her in real life. I feel so lucky to have found such a neat friendship ...all through blogging. And it doesn't hurt that she makes me laugh every. single. day!

This award recognizes Unfailing Eagerness to Comment On Even the Smallest of Blog Posts.

I'd like to pass this award to Vivienne at The V Spot and Cadance at Our Life In Perfect Cadence. 2 more awesome friends I have made through blogging. If either of them miss a few days due to their very busy lives, they always make sure to go back and get caught up with commenting on any posts they've missed. Makes me feel special! Vivienne is Hil. ar. ious. No joke...and she is the BEST story teller! Cadance has the most adorable, sparkly personality and it shines through in all her adventures that she shares. Not to mentions the both of them are 2 of the most organized people I have ever "met"!

Last, but most certainly not least, I was given the Uplifting Blogger award by both Heidi at Blue Eyed Blessings, and MiMi at Living in France. I've already told you about MiMi, but let me tell you about Heidi. I am always so impressed with everything she does in her household and for her family. You wouldn't believe how many things she does that she lets her little girl be her "helper". When I would be like "get out of my way!" she makes it a fun time to share with her daughter. She also has a little boy who is just getting old enough to be a "helper" too, and like I said, I am so impressed with the way she makes room in her busy schedule to have them involved in her activities.

The Uplifting Blogger Award is given to bloggers who uplift the readers of their blogs. I am so flattered that anyone finds my blog uplifting! I'd like to pass this award on to the following bloggers who never fail to uplift me!

Both of these bloggers I also consider true friends. I make it a point to never miss a blog post, even if I have to go back if I miss a few days, because these 2 are always amusing, inspiring, REAL, and I always leave their blogs feeling uplifted.

Thank you to everyone who thought of me. It really means a lot, and I'm sorry I'm not better at getting these posted! Also, some of you may already have these, or maybe even all of you do! No need to pass them along unless you want to...I just wanted you to know I was thinking of ya!

You are so sweet! Thanks for thinking of me!...I know...I'm the same as you with awards..it feels so nice to be thought of...but I have a problem at getting around to posting and handing them out too...and to be honest they remind me of the movie "Office Space" did you ever see that with Jennifer Aniston....remember the "Flare"??? That is what I think of with blog awards...and it makes me laugh out loud...I think I'll have to post about that! ;)
