Thank You! Thank you very much!

This post is a bit overdue. I've got a few saved posts that I have been intending on publishing, but never seemed to have time. Well, now is as good a time as any, since I'm stuck in bed for the rest of this pregnancy! It also looks like I'll be able to participate in NaBloPoMo this year after all!

Thank you to the following bloggers for awarding me with a few more blog awards.

D'Rae from Slices of Life gave me this award:

Here are the rules:

1.The nominated person is allowed to put the picture on their blogs.
2.Link to the person who awarded you.
3.Nominate seven other people and link to them.
4.Leave a message on those people's blog to make them aware that they're nominated.

I'm passing this award onto:
Mrinz- I love her and her blog. She is such a thoughtful, caring person. Her posts are always interesting and her posts and photos really me want to get on the next plane to New Zealand!!
Sharon- A truly lovely, lovely person. Sharon is always full of wisdom and encouragement. I really, REALLY love her. (How many times can I use the word "love" in one sentence?) She and her daughters also run an amazing business. I'm a true fan of their site. For all things baby/family/pets check out!!!
Louann-One of the sweetest people out there! Read her blog and you'll see why I love this gal!
Rosie-Not only is she a great blog buddy, but she is also a wonderful friend in real life. This woman is amazing! I don't know how she does it all! She's amazing with computers and website building, she's a fantastic photographer, a wonderful wife and a great mom to seven kids! I love this gal! xo Rosie, I meant to give you this award the other week, but didn't get around to posting this until today! :)
Audrey-Another one of the sweetest people ever! She's always so full of positive thoughts. It's clear to see that she has a lot of her mom's great qualities :) Thanks for being such a great friend, Audrey! xo
Jane-One of my favourite people in the world! Jane is one of the most thoughtful, sensitive, caring gals around.
Karen-I LOVE this gal! She's got so much energy and she is sooooo funny! If you ever need a good pick-me-up on a bad day, go to Karen! She'll make you laugh...guaranteed! ;)
This next award was given to me by Rosie at Telling Mom.
Here is the wording for this special award: To translate the gift from Portuguese to English, it means:”This blog invests and believes, the proximity” (meaning, that blogging makes us ‘close’ -being close through proxy) “They all are charmed with the blogs, where in the majority of its aims are to show the marvels and to do friendship; there are persons who are not interested when we give them a prize, and then they help to cut these bows; do we want that they are cut, or that they propagate? Then let’s try to give more attention to them! So with this prize we must deliver it to bloggers that in turn must make the same thing and put this text.
The recipients of this award are:
J- is one of the most thoughtful and intelligent (and thought provoking) writers around. I always enjoy reading her posts. Just by her writing, you can tell what a beautiful person she is inside (oh, and out! J is absolutely gorgeous)! She's an avid reader and always has great book reviews! She also posts amazing recipes.
Cherry-If Cherry lived closer, I think I'd hang out with her A LOT! She is such a cool person and a great pal. Oh, this girl can bake!!! If you see photos of her creations, you'd rethink whatever diet you were on! I'm not much of a sweets/desserts fan, but I'm sure Cherry's baked goods would change that!
Starshine-She's beautiful, radiant, sweet, talented, and such a positive person.
Autumn's Mom-makes me laugh all the time! She really knows how to turn a frown upside down :) She's one of the funniest people I've never met...yet! ;)
D'Rae-always thinks of others, despite her busy, busy lifestyle! I always enjoy the surprise e-mails from her. They always seem to come when most needed! :)
Trish-is just a beautiful person all around. If I were to describe Trish in but a few adjectives, I'd have to say that she is loving, caring, and thoughtful. Read her blog and check out her adventures with her adorable twin boys. So cute!
Ellie-is such a great friend to have. She is so thoughtful and full of encouragement. I treasure everything she shares with me. I am blessed to know her.
Lisa-is another thoughtful blogger! If you check out her site, you'll know why I love her. You'll also be dazzled by her amazing photographs! Lisa has an eye for detail and composition. I really enjoy her photos.
This last award was given to me by the lovely and talented Sharon from Mom Generations. Thanks, Sharon! You always know the perfect things to say and you are such a positive and encouraging friend to have around! Love ya!

I'm supposed to pass this award onto 7 other bloggers whose blogs I love. There are so many wonderful bloggers and blogs out there. It's so hard to just narrow it down to 7! Here goes:
Jeanna- I LOVE Jeanna's blog (and Jeanna too!). She's got a wicked sense of humour and says things as they are. If you love candy, Jeanna's blog is the place to visit! This gal really knows her candy! She's also been a great pal. Love ya, Jeanna! xo
Ms.Mamma-I have been frequenting her blog since I first began blogging in 2006. Ms.Mamma is one of the coolest gals around. She's super funny, witty, and a fantastic photographer! She's also got a gift for writing. She's all around amazing. Check her out!
Fancy Pantsy- is the friend who got me into blogging a few years ago. I love Fancy for her honesty and great advice. Not only is she a well-read, well-informed lady, but she is one stylin' mama too! For all things cool, check out her blog!
Canine Cologne-I love Canine and her blog. She's been a great friend and like Jeanna, she has got a wicked sense of humour! Love it! Lately, Canine has been posting about lots of amazing spots to eat in her neck of the woods. Totally makes me want to get on a plane to go restaurant hopping with her! Ummm...Maybe someday after "Junior" is born! ;)
Lotus-Love, love, LOVE Lotus and her blog too! Every time I check her posts out, I all of a sudden begin salivating! Seriously! This woman can cook!!! I would LOVE to hire her on as my personal cook! Her hubby and daughter are soooooooooo lucky!!!
Beach Mama-One of the loveliest people in the blogosphere! Fantastic photographer, amazing baker and cake maker, cute baby hat knitter, and Mom extraordinaire! That's what she is and more!
Momisodes-If you read her blog, you'll see just why she has soooooo many readers! Funny, articulate, a great photographer, and all around sweetheart, Sandy is one of my fave bloggers.
Okay, I think this is the most I've used the word "love" in one post! I'm outta here! xoxo


Autumn's Mom said...

XOXO You are such a dear and deserve all of these awards. Thank you for sharing :) I promise to keep you laughing, but not so hard that junior comes shooting out. K?

Cherry said...

Ha! AM is a hoot isn't she! Remember to keep your legs shut when you read her blog.

Thank you for the kind nomination my dear! You have attracted so many people to your blog by the warmth and honesty that comes out in your writing. And if we did live closer, we would indeed be hanging out! I'd come sit with you during this resting period you are on, and entertain you the best I know how.

We're going to New Hamshire for Christmas and I looked up how long it would take to get to you. Sadly 15+ hours was too much. But someday!

Jane - Mom Generations said...

You are clearly loved, and for good reason! You are one of my most favorite people, too, C!! THANK YOU for the award! It means a lot coming from you. Much love to you, hubby, Junior, Chance and all the animals!! :-)

Thank you Chrissy! I am very honoured indeed to receive this award.

Every day I am thinking of you having to be in bed all day!
I hope that time is not dragging by too much.

FancyMomma said...

Thanx Chrissy. It'll take me a while to pass it along.

Momisodes said...

Oh sweets. Thank you so much! I LOVE your blog, too :) I hope you're having a great day and taking it easy.

p.s. Have you tried Twirl on facebook? ADDICTING! I played that while on bed rest for hours ;)

p.s.s. Thank you for translating that Portuguese award. I've been wondering that it meant.

Sharon - Mom Generations said...

You are soooooo loved and for soooooo many reasons! I love reading your blog each day. It is, to me, my little vacation each and every day. You are always there... like the sun each morning and the moon each night. You are a warm breeze and the sound of the leaves rustling. I can smell the delights from your kitchen, and touch your precious land. You are a great big virtual hug!!!! You are a perfect friend...

Anonymous said...

Thanks, Sweets. I'm so glad you have a laptop as well. I was wondering about how you'd be able to just lounge with the web carrying on! YAY! XOXO
