Blog Love and Friendship

Christmas time 2008 was kind to me and I received the following gifts from my fellow prestigious Bloggers.

I truly Thank You for your kind consideration in sending these awards my way.

And without much fan fair....TA DA! Here are the bloggers to whom I am passing recognition.

This first award came from A Simple Life, a close cousin to Our Simple Life. We family stick together!!


1. Put the logo in your blog.
2. Add a link to the person who shared it with you.
3. Pass this award to your Blogger Friends
4. Add your link to the list of participants below
5. Leave a message for your nominee on their blog.

Blog Lovers: 1. Soul Anchor 2. Cookie’s Corner 3. Ane of Life According To Me 4. Tales of a Pinay Single Mommy 5. A Girl For All for Status 6. A Simple Life 7. Our Simple Life!


And I am passing Blog love on to Janah at So Not Mom-a-licious. Even though she has been away for a while, she can whip up a Costco story providing superiour entertainment value.

The next lovely sign of recognition for me was from Grand Pooba who is making friends each and every day like every good Blogger does!! I am honored and glad to be counted.

And as my preschooler Wyatt recites to me almost every day, "...round as a circle you're my friend..." for friendship that goes round and round!

It is the Friendship Award which means:

"These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."

So I pass this award on to these friends that I have met through blogging:

KJmama at "The Phrase 'Working Mother' is Redundant"

Michelle at My Crazy Life With a Toddler

El at Expanding the Family

Amanda at What's Going On??

Suzi at Savy Suzi

Jennifer at Hapily-Ever-After-Land

The Mind of a Mom at From The Mind of a Mom

Maricris at Zen Ventures

Blog on ladies, blog on!!!!
