My first award, no wait, my first two awards!

Yesterday morning, as I frantically went around fixing a glitch on my Dee-Zigns website, I received an email about my very first award! Okay, it was from my mom, Jane at Gaston Studio, but she doesn't hand these out lightly! I must say, she follows many, more deserving bloggers than myself. But my mom has always (well, mostly) been my number one fan! I I mean, come on, there have been times in my past, when she hasn't been supportive of some of my decisions (with good reason, I might add) but that's another story.

So she awarded me One Lovely Blog ... so thank you... thank you very much (my silent Elvis impression!).

The rules are: Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link. Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you've newly discovered. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.
Here are my 15 favorites that you really should visit if you haven’t already discovered them:

  1. The Power of Housewife word of mouth
  2. One Krusty Mama
  3. Just a Girl
  4. A Daily Dose of Toni (not me, another Toni)
  5. Confessions of a Moody Mommy
  6. Be Diffirent...Act Normal
  7. City Mouse, Country Mouse
  8. Connect with your teens through Pop Culture and Technology
  9. Gorgeous and Green
  10. What I should have said
  11. Facts are strictly optional
  12. Blah, Blah, Blah
  13. KV Creative Designs
  14. Fabulous After 40
  15. A Southern Daydreamer
"Grab" these awards and place them on your own blog... and don't forget to share!

So just when I thought I'd completed my list above, I got another email that I had another award! Woo-hoo! Yes, Jane at Gaston Studio, awarded me the Zombie Chicken Award, but give her a break, I am her first born (read favorite), after all.

Warning, the following award might scare you! Ha, it did me, not a fan of "real" zombies, although I always watch movies with zombies in it. Go figure.

The Zombie Chicken award which is described as follows:

"The blogger who receives this award believes in the Tao of the zombie chicken - excellence, grace and persistence in all situations, even in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. These amazing bloggers regularly produce content so remarkable that their readers would brave a raving pack of zombie chickens just to be able to read their inspiring words. As a recipient of this world-renowned award, you now have the task of passing it on to at least 5 other worthy bloggers. Do not risk the wrath of the zombie chickens by choosing unwisely or not choosing at all..."

Crap, no wrath for me! I have enough wrath to keep me busy for a while, thank you very little.

Here are my five, and they totally deserve as do many, many others!
A Southern Daydreamer

So go forth and check out all these bloggers. Some are inspiring, some are informative, some are entertaining, some keep you busy, some are just down right hilarious, and I mean fall off my chair hilarious, not just a "lol".
