And the Oscar goes to.....

February 23, 2010

I've recieved my very first award!! Lol...I have been waiting for this since almost the beginning of this blog. That may sound cheesy to some of you but whatevs!!

Salma over at Imperfect Stepford Chronicles has given me the Sunshine award!! Her blog is (literally) the second blog that I found here on Blogspot. In short her blog is about her and her husband trying to put their lives back together after the loss of their son by going on 100 dates in a year. When you read her entries about the loss of their son, you feel like you're right there with her and you feel her pain!! Her strength is AMAZING!

As always there are Rules to Accept the Award:

◦Put the logo on your blog in your post.

◦Pass the award onto 12 bloggers.
* I've decided that I'm going to try to pass on this award to other bloggers who don't have this one already. That may be impossible because the blogs I follow are amazing!!

◦Link the nominees within your post.
*Will do

◦Let the nominees know they have received this award by commenting on their blogs.
Gonna get right to it!

◦Share the love and link to the person from whom you received this award.

 1.First and foremost is Jamie. She brought me back to blogging after all. She's a young mother who has some wonderful ideas for making lunches fun.

When you read her entries about the loss of their son, you feel like you're right there with her and you feel her pain!! Her strength is AMAZING! She's been very supportive of my blog. She usually comments on every entry.

The second person I'm going to give this award to is Gail at Louisiana Belle. She was born and raised in Louisiana. She has a wonderful entry about telling her children how much she loves them.

Next is Julie at 47 and Staring Over. The title says it all. Her blog is always interesting!

Jamie also gave me a Beautiful Blogger Award.


 The rules for accepting this award are:

Thank and link to the person who gave you the award.
Pass the award on to 7 bloggers you have discovered and think are fantastic. Of course all bloggers are fantastic!
State 7 things about yourself.

1. I'm in the process of trying to get my GED. I'm 40 years old and would like to acheive this goal before my bithday in September.

2. I love to read. I read all for Twilight books in a week. If I'm really into a book I'll stay up all night reading just to finish the book.

3. I love reality tv. Big Brother, The Bachelor, Survivor, and all the trashy one's on VH1 and MTV.

4. I have a 20 year old son who lives in Louisiana. I couldn't be prouder of him. He works anywhere between 80-130 hours a week. He works hard and plays even harder. I miss him terribly.

5. My husband  bought me a charm bracelet. I can't wait to fill it up. So far I have 6 charms on it, they are
1. Micky Mouse hat with ears - sister in law got this one for me at Disney Land.
2. Snowman head with a scarf - my Mother in law got me this one for xmas.
3. A Fleur di lis. Because I'm from Louisiana. Hubby got me this one.
4. A Cherry. When hubby and I met online my screen name was sweetcherries. Hubby bought me this one.
5. The letter Y. Our last name. Hubby bought this one.
6. A whale tail. When we were down at the beach for our wedding one afternoon we were standing out on the deck of our beach house and I saw some "dolphins" in the water. I said "man...that's a big assed dolphin." Lmao... hubby said "That's a whale baby!" was I supposed to know? I'd never seen a whale before!

6. I'm usually great at making blog designs and layouts. For the life of me I can't figure out how to make on for blogger. It's driving me nuts. I've given up on it lol.
7. I have Fibromyalgia. I could never explain to anyone how much pain I'm in on a constant daily basis. Can you imagine what it feels like (emotionally) when a hug hurts?

Here's the 7 blogs I'm passing this award to.

Whew...onto my last award. Jamie also gave me this one. You rock girl!


To accept this award I need to list 5 things you may not know about me and then pass it onto 5 other bloggers.

Five Things You May Not Know About Me
1. I love to cook. I cook mostly cajun foods, you know...gumbo, jambalaya, that kind of stuff.
2. Hubby and I will celebrate our first wedding anniversary in April. I can't wait.
3. I'm somewhat crafty. I've started crocheting an afgan for my son. Haven't finished it yet. Then I started  knitting a baby blanket for my Nephew's son. He's a year old...I haven't finished it yet. Noticing a theme? lol..
4. I can wiggle my ears.
5. I <3 my laptop hubby got me for xmas. My IL's think I'm addicted. They may be right.

The 5 people I pass this award onto are:

Wow! I didn't realize how much work these awards are! Lol...I've tried to give them all to different people. I don't think I gave the same person two...but I could be wrong.

Instead of writing a seperate blog entry I'll just add to this one. Our wedding weekend was amazing. Other than the face that we NEVER got hot water, well ok we did get hot water in our hotel room...the morning we were checking out. We've sent "nasty grams" to Travelocity and Comfort Inn. I doubt we'll even hear back from them.

The wedding was beautiful and so damn touching. To see my big ol' tough biker looking hubby  break down during the father/daughter dance almost broke my heart. There wasn't a dry eye in the whole place. His oldest daughter sat in her chair just sobbing...which made me sob like a blubbering idiot! I got drunk as hell and ended up busting my ass outside in front of a bunch of people lol.

Hope you all have a wonderful day! My work here isn't done! Now I have to go notify all of these people that I've passed these awards onto them! Then I've got to run to the store, I'm making some gumbo for supper tonight! Yum.

Much love!
