Okay so last week Toni had a post with a mosh posh of awards that she nominated a group of 30 blogs to ‘accept’ or whatever…and since I’m so behind on so many things, I’m just going to post ’em all and then decide what to do…Oh, what to do! 🙂

First is this Award:

Here are the rules for this one:

1. Mention the blog that gave it to you and comment on their blog to let them know you’ve posted your award.
2. Publish these rules.
3. Share 6 values that are important to you and 6 things you do not support.
4. Grant the prize to 6 people.
5. Mention the blog that gave it to you and comment on their blog to let them know you’ve posted your award.

Six Important Values/Beliefs (I hope you don’t mind, Toni, but you wrote exactly what I would have written, so thanks for doing the typing for me, you’re the best!):

2. Honesty, sometimes you only have your word to depend on so it should always be good
3. Loyalty, if you want others to be loyal to you you have to be loyal to them
4. Help others in need, you never know when you will be the one in need
5. Believe in yourself, if you want others too you have to believe as well
6. Respect, to get respect you have to give it.

Six Values/Beliefs I do NOT support:

1. Treating others badly
2. Talking about people and then being nice to their face
3. Hate
4. Hurting another to further yourself
5. Racism
6. Harassing people/Threatening people

The 6 I pass it onto….see end of post

Next is the Marie Antoinette Award:

1) Please add the Marie Antoinette award photo on your blog
2) Place a link to the person from whom you received the award
3) nominate 7 exceptional blogs to receive the award
4) put the links to those blogs on your blog
5) leave a message on their blogs to tell them they are the chosen ones!

Here are my 7…no, wait – see end of post…

And here’s this cool Rockin’ Award:

Now I must pass it on to 5 people……wait for it……see end of post.

OK, so she also had some ‘tags’, but I’m going to bypass those for now… 😉 Besides, I’m playing hide-n-seek right now, not tag! So that means I’m getting off a lot easier than she did, since she had 30 people to pass along the awards and tags to…I only have to pass ’em on to 18 people! (grin!)
And finally, I received this cool award from FireflyShop – if you haven’t checked her out, you really should, she’s a sweetheart!

Like the others, this award comes with its own set of rules:

  • Display the award on your blog or your post.
  • Nominate 10 blogs that have great Attitude, and or Gratitude.
  • Link your nominees.
  • Live a comment on your nominees blogs, so they know what’s happening.
  • And as always link back to the blog who give you the award :)

So now my ‘count’ of people I’m supposed to nominate and all that totals up to 28…holy moly! 28 incredible bloggers just waiting for their awards! Or are they…?

Because it’s such a busy time of year, I’m going to do the unthinkable…I’m not going to list a bazillion blogs (well, 28) to receive these awards…I know, I know, I’m hearing a collective gasp amongst the blog community, but I don’t want anyone to feel left out, so if you’re reading this post, and you know who you are, I nominate YOU! Ha! Gotcha! Now you have to go and put these awards on your blog so you can show ’em off. If you want to link back to me, that would be way cool, but if you don’t or don’t have time or whatever, I’m not going to hold it against you. You can just leave a comment to this post, and I’ll be sure to stop by your blog and give you lots of accolades! 🙂 I am, however, giving a huge hug and great big thank you to my two hilarious and dedicated blogger friends, Toni and Firefly for thinking of me when they bestowed their awards, and am definitely linking back to them because they deserve it! 🙂 Thanks so much for the awards, ladies, I really and truly appreciate them!
