~January Awards, Memes and Tags~

It's award time! I feel so honored every time I receive these awards and I really appreciate every one of them! So lets get to it~ Lemonade award~ given to me by one of the sweetest ladys I know in bloggy world....KD over at Southern Whimsy. Oh, and while I was doing this award post....I received another Lemonade award.....how bout that....this time it comes from The Hamilton Family....Thank you so much!!!! She is new to me...so as soon as I am finished with this post...I am heading over there to check out her blog! Thank you so much Mrs. Hamilton for this award! How's that for timing! A big thank you to both ladies....I feel so honored! The purpose of this award is to give it to someone who is showing gratitude or a good attitude ("if life hands you lemons, make lemonade") within their life or blog. The rules:1) put the logo on your blog2) nominate at least 10 blogs that show great attitude and/or gratitude.3) have your 10 pass it along to 10 more! That's the hard part....having to pick only 10....I just don't think that is fair! I usually just leave these awards open for anyone to pick them up....but because this one has a special meaning...I am passing it along to the following~
1. Vanessa at Lawsy Mercy~ You deserve this award with out a doubt!
2. Dawnie at Dawnies life if by the Sea ~ Another deserver of this award without a doubt!
3. Bo at Blinks 'N Winks From Brown Eyes ~ She helped me with something that only she knows! Thank you Bo!
4. Beth at I am heading toward my destiny ~ I admire this lady for everything she has been through! She is incredible! She is beautiful on the outside and inside. A true inspiration!
Okay, that's not 10 but I am stopping at this point.

This award is just fabulous! I was so thrilled when I finally received it! It came from Beth at I am heading towards my destiny....Thank you Beth! I will decorate my blog with this beautiful Southern Lady....she is southern....right?
I will leave it for who ever wants it! Please take it and accept it from me.This Proximadade Award, comes from Carrie at Carola Nativity Gallery, which translated from Portuguese means, "This blog contributes to and supports or believes in close friendships."
"This blog invests and believes the PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or 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."

8~ Okay I really don't like to choose like this, but okay~

1. Can't do it! If you want it....pick it up and please accept it from moi!

Next, I received a meme from Vanessa at Lawsy Mercy....Love this gal! She is a great Blog friend and a neighbor too! Okay, Can someone tell me, what in the world is a meme? Anywayz, I get to post 6 things about moi~that y'all don't know....And good for you, I like to talk about me....lol ;)

Here's the rules~ Link to the person that tagged you~ Post the rules on your blog~ Write six random thing about yourself~ Tag six people at the end of your post and link to them~ Let each person know that they have been tagged and leave a comment on their blog~ Let the tagger know when your entry is up

Y'all ready?

1. I got married at 17! I don't recommend that! Sarah~ you listen to me!!! Don't get married till you have a college education!!!! I don't regret it....but that's all I will say... ;)

2. I use to be a very shy person....now, you can't shut me up... :) just ask my hubby...he will be honest.

3. I have an obsession with Kiefer Sutherland...and 24! I can't help it! He is my weakness!

4. I am not a morning gal! Don't talk to me before 11:00 a.m.! You and me might regret it ;)

6. I was a substitute teacher at our church daycare and school, for 7 yrs. It was not uncommon to have the 2 yr olds one day and before the day was over be in the 12th grade...talk about transition....sometimes I miss those days and sometimes I don't!

Now, I have to pass this along to 6, but I am breaking this rule too! Most all of us have received this meme.....but if you haven't then please take it and let me know when you do it and I will tell about it on my blog....how's that. Fair enough!

If I have left out any awards and I do think I left out one....from Sue, I have several blogs of Sues....all I wrote down was Sue...I didn't put a blog name with it...bad blogger I am...hey, is there a bad blogger award...I need one! .....Please forgive me....if you will let me know...I will add it in asap!

haha. im not getting married at 17....im getting married at 18!! ha! i won't regret it either, i can manage alex and school, i don't really plan on going a big college, i could never afford it, and i dont have the grades... but i want to be a bail bondsmen/bounty hunter so i am going to go into criminal justice. hopefully i can also go to beauty school too, i am REALLY into makeup and hair, more makeup though. and i like living in the south, i just really love cold weather! it is too sunny for me! i am allergic to the sun, so it is kind of hard in the summer....i am making my own parasol soon though, i will post a picture as soon as i am done. have a great weekend and god bless you too.
