Neglectful Winner's AWARDS Ceremony

Yep, that's me, I'm a neglectful winner. Some of my absolutely fabulous friends have honored me with some great awards and tagged me with memes they thought I would enjoy. What have I done to show my appreciation? I've been too caught up in arguing with college advisors, crying over that ignorant rank, and trying to get away from the constant banging, hammering, yellings of "watch out!", and worrying that my husband is going to fall off a roof. I'm such a horrible friend :-( I honestly do love my awards and memes, and I thank you for thinking of me! Just WAIT until you see this ceremony that I've been working on though. I promise you it's quite impressive... (Click "Read more" Click it! Click it!!!)

I received TWO (yep, that's more than one!) awesome awards from one of my new favorite people Ann at A Nice Place In The Sun. Ann is a writer, and I find her blog fun, inspiring, and thought provoking all at the same time! You'll be thanking me for sending you to her blog! She gave me:
This award is Mel at Monday Morning Powers new feel good award for the blogs who display winning attitudes on their blogs! Here are Mels reasons for passing out this award:

" This award seems like a natural given what my site is all about. This award is based on positive thinking and is meant for those blogs who base their existence, in part or in whole, on Positive Winning Attitudes."

I pass this award on to:
Stacey at JameeForever
Linda at Are We There Yet
Tammy at Mom Knows Everything
GiGi at Girl Gone Wild (Bible Style)
Rachel at Soulful Thoughts of Rachel
Holly at Mama Pajama
Carrie at Rantings of a Woman

Ann also gave me this cool award:
This award was created by Mark of MeAndMyDrum, who said that the BeTheBlog phrase stuck in his head from a meme Tish from TheKatHouse sent him about what it means to be a successful blogger.

To quote his words to BeTheBlog, "really sums up what a successful blogger does. And what I mean by successful is that they make it their own, stay with it, are interactive with their readers, and just plain have fun."

I want to pass this on to all of my blogging friends, because all of you work at your blog to make it what it is. Each blog is unique, and you all inspire me. However, I may get in trouble for passing this award on to everyone I know ;-) So, I'll select just a few (although I hate having to do that!)
Bradley at The Egel Nest
David at authorblog
Vic at Cariboo Ponderer
The Gal Herself at One Gal's Musings
Bridget at And Miles To Go Before We Sleep
Tammy at Mom Knows Everything

This post isn't over yet! This is an extra long award ceremony, because...well, I've been neglectful. Carrie at Rantings of a Woman also blessed me with a very beautiful award.
This one is really tough for me to choose who to pass it along to. Do you realize how many fabulous friends I have met through blogging??? I mean seriously! How can I choose?
Early on in blogging, I met and discovered great friendships with:
The Lawn Mower Queen (She's my BF who convinced me to start blogging to begin with!)
Stacey
GiGi
Jessie
Skittles
Autumn
Kara
Tammy
D
Bubba's Sis
Jolene
Bridget
and
Janice
But, it doesn't stop there! As I continued blogging, I developed so many more beautiful friendships. Like those with:
Bradley
Sanni
David
Linda
Rachel
Holly
Ann
Sandee
Christy
Claire
Smalltown RN
BeccA
Anna
Vic
Cat
Carrie
Pepper
Marcus
Stine
Terri
Bee
The Gal Herself
Maggie
JD
Travis
Katherine
Skeet
and
Mimi
(I'm sure there are many more, and I apologize if I have missed you!!! I'll be pretty gosh darn impressed with myself if I get all these links done and correct before bedtime!) There! I shouldn't get in trouble now, because I was very choosy when passing this award on ;-)

Last, but definitely NOT least (cuz she's my BBFF), Tammy at Mom Knows Everything passed this award on to me:
I'd like to pass this award on to some of the blogs that particularly inspire me or continue to evoke emotion or thought for me.
Bradley at The Egel Nest
David at authorblog
Ann at A Nice Place In The Sun
Sandee at Comedy Plus
JD at The Uneasy Supplicant
Bridget at And Miles To Go Before We Sleep
Janice at Twist & Skewer

Whew!!! How's that for an awards ceremony??? (and a little linky love too hehehe) Going to go hide now, so the award police can't find me.

Wow! Thank you! I am honored!

I've got a couple awards that I need to do a post on myself but I just keep forgetting - I need to learn to write this stuff down or tag it or something. Or just write the post!! Ah, but that's easier said than done, isn't it?

Ann

Misty, You got me! Don't you love the peek-a-boo hack? And thank you for such a fantastic compliment and shout out for ANPITS. You are one of my favorite new friends as well.

Great post and congrats, you deserve these awards. :))

Ann

Mark

Congratulations on getting the BTB award. And congratulations to those you bestowed it to. Have an awesome weekend!

Smalltown RN

You deserve every award you get...and you know...sometimes life is busy..and we do what we can...and when you can post and say hello that is great....

As far as the banner ....I think you should do a banner that reflects you and how you want others to see you.....I love the puppy...and you love your dogs...I love your flicker photos with all the horses....how about pick a theme that relfects you and change the photos within that theme periodically.....

Kara

Thank you for the award, you are so sweet! I am behind on awards, I should post them soon. :)
