"And the Winner Is..."

"Thank you, thank you, thank you. (blowing kisses to all my "fans") I couldn't have done it without you."

S-E-R-I-O-U-S-L-Y kidding!!

Apparently I have been awarded the Arte Y Pico blog award. Honestly, I really didn't make this up myself, although not a bad idea to occasionally just give yourself an award to make yourself feel good. Hmmm (thinking about all the blue ribbons and gold medals I am going to adorn myself with. Things like # 1 ribbon for making it through the morning without raising my voice, or a gold medal for actually finding time to shower and put on make-up!)
Oh, I digress.

The Arte Y Pico award was created to give to other bloggers that inspire others with their creative energy, whether it be through their writing, artwork or more. I was so honored with this award by a new blogging buddy, AuburnGalAlways. For the life of me I cannot figure out how in the world I could inspire a person like her for she is a far better writer than I am. So, I am very humbled, friend.

The Rules for the Award:
1. Put the logo on your blog (picture above)
2. Add a link to the person who awarded it to you
3. Nominate at least 5 other blogs that inspire you
4. Add links to these blogs on your blog
5. Leave a message for your nominee on their blog to
let them know you gave them the award

Before I present my nominations, let me just say that all five of these people have inspired me on a personal level. All five of these bloggers are real life friends, and I am so blessed to know such fine women, mothers, wives, and friends.

And the nominees are....(drum roll)...
1. JMom @ Lots of Scotts
2. Wendymom @ Mom of Eleven
3. Joni @ Jonis Joy
4. Georgia Mom
5. Just Another Ordinary Miracle

(Participate if you wish)

Hey! I'm not ignoring your award, although I'm wary of anything passed down from an Auburn fan :) It gives me hope though for the world--that they can operate a computer, I wasn't aware that they could read :) OOps, maybe I better cut out the cut downs since I can't figure out how to copy the award picture onto my blog!! Hee Hee

Georgia Mom,

I too, was worried about the "Auburn Thing", but she is and O.K. person...we won't hold it against her!...

Just right click on the picture and you can click "Save As" it to something you will know and then there you go. (Don't feel bad about this, because I asked the same question to her!!!..maybe we need to re-think where we obtained OUR degree from!!!)

Don't feel obligated to participate, but I did mean it to nominate do inspire me on so many levels.
