Have You Ever Had a Hot Sauce Moment??

Laura took notice of all the craziness and just plain silliness going around the blogosphere.  She decided she was going to create a special award just for the people that couldn’t handle a joke, got irate, hid behind their monitors to be anonymous and those of us that have been the “victims” of these people and more.  Each week, she takes nominations for “Hot Sauce Moments”.  She then links to those moments and creates a poll.  The winner each week is awarded the “Hot Sauce Award” shown above.

If you’d like to learn more about the “Hot Sauce Award”, make a nomination, vote or any of that good stuff, check out Laura’s post on the award or to view her blog.  Remember, she awards this each week, so bookmark her blog or add it to your favorites so that you can keep up with the latest “Hot Sauce Moments”!!

BFF Award

I just came across the “Blog Friend Forever” award. 

“This award is presented to awesome BLOG owners who keep their readers excited about their posts. Their blog posts are interesting (NOT spammy) and worth reading and keep their subscribers looking forward to each and every post.”


I realized in a hurry that I had a couple “blog friends” that this applied to.  I had to check the rules to make sure I could grab it to share.  Then I had to check and recheck to make sure that there wasn’t a bunch of tagging to do.  None of that stuff.  It’s just about exactly what it says!!  I thought awhile about this and decided….”yep, I really want to do this one”!!  So, here it is.  Without further ado, I want to present this award to a couple women who I absolutely have to read daily.  I not only have to read them, but I honestly feel like we’re friends, although we’ve never met.  My “BFF” is:

1.  Laura at Still Crazy After All These Years – I’ve known the longest; we met in a group over a religious education question and have much in common; hope to know for a very long time to come

2.  Debbie at Almost…Daily Brain Farts of an Airhead Mom – met in the groups as well and can tell she’s a good person; just enjoy her sense of humor, her posts and want to know her for a long time to come

3.  Elaine at What the…WHOA This is Atypical – a Canadian and kindred Elaine that I just enjoy reading; she’s so different than me, yet I find her interesting and fun (and I feel like a blog big sister!!)

4.  Tammy at A Day to Share with Tammy– a blogger who writes with depth, love and intellect; we’ve shared a few private convos and I just enjoy the depth of her blog and the feelings and insight that she always shares

So that’s my short list!!  I don’t have this award, nor was it presented to me in any way.  I found it, read the rules, saw that you’re allowed to grab it and just really wanted to share it.  And ladies, there’s nothing more that you have to do to receive this award.  However, if you feel compelled, you can share it with 1 or more other fellow bloggers that fit the description of this award.

EDIT (UPDATE):  My blogging kindred namesake, Elaine, has returned the BFF Award to me.  I truly appreciate it and am honored that she feels that way enough to share it right back to me!!  Thanks Elaine!!

One of a Kind Bookshelf Award

A dear blogging friend has left me and several others a one of a kind blogging “award” bookshelf.  Tammy at A Day to Share with Tammy has received quite a number of blog awards.  Tagging people became overwhelming for her.  So, she did what you’d expect her to do.  Tammy created her own “one of a kind bookshelf”.  It is a bookcase of all the awards she’s received.  And she’s passing it on to several of us.

She made the rules simple.  Tagging is optional!!  Therefore, I don’t have a list of rules or names with sites to post here.  I have the option to share with others, but I think I’m going to wait on it.  I’m going to wait to see what other recipients of this one of a kind award do.

My gratitude goes out to Tammy for creating something so unique and special.  I encourage you  to read her blog.  She’s deserved every award she’s gotten and it’s an honor to have her share it with me.

Bloggy Award and a New Widget

My online gal pal, Laura, at Still Crazy After All These Years has honored me with another award and proved just how insane sweet she really is. 

I’m very honored that she did this….again!!  We’ve known each other quite sometime online.  I read her blog on a daily basis.  Ok, it’s more than daily, but it is as time permits and that usually means getting caught up late at night!!  HAHA  She’s the one I feel is deserving of the “I love (heart) your blog” award!!

Now it’s my duty to share the blog love.  The rules of this award are:

1. The winner can put the logo on his/her blog.

2. Link the person you received your award from.

3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs.

4. Put links of those blogs on yours.

5. Leave a message on the blogs of the people you’ve nominated.

So now with the rules of blog love posted, I must list my nominees.  This is never easy for me.  However, without further ado, I’d like to share the blog love with:

1.  Annette at Under the Loupe

2.  Christina at Mustard Seeds

3.  Tiffanie at Three Peas in a Pod

4.  Lorri fellow Army wife at The Mac and Cheese Chronicles

5.  Angie at Many Little Blessings



HHMMMM  Ok, I’m going to have to break the rules just a bit!!  LOL  I’m going to leave it with those 5, unless I can narrow my choices down even more.  My problem is that I like too many blogs!!

{Thanks my fans and Laura…..takes a bow and walks off into the setting sun….}


Oh crap!!  I forgot about my new widget!!  HAHA  If you check out my side column, you’ll see a new widget over there.  It’s called ShoutBox.  If you get the notion to “talk” to me messenger style, just click that link and it’ll open up to the chat box.  Feel free to leave me a message and I promise to get back to you as soon as I can.  NOTE:  This does NOT replace the comment love that I so do adore and thrive on!!  So, give me a SHOUT!!

….And We Have a Winner!!

3rd Place at the Geography FairWell folks, we have a winner!!  The Geography Fair is finally over and all the judging has been done.  Miss K walked a way with a tie with another student for 3rd place!!  WooHoo  We’re so proud of her.  I selfishly prayed all day that God would give her the strength and confidence to impress the judges and that God would give the judges the insight to see what a good kid she is.  I guess this is one of those answered prayers.  She’s a little disappointed in herself because she thinks she choked a little bit on her presentation.  We’ve told her that she did just fine.  A tie for 3rd place is nothing to shake your fist at!!  As a whole, the class did great.  There was many winners in the class and several ties for all the places.  One of her best friends had a tie for 1st place.  We’re so happy for him too!!  We don’t know about 2nd yet because they ran out of ribbons, however, we do know that there were a few who got that.  Now that it’s all over, we can all breath and relax.  YAY!!

CONGRATS Miss K….we’re so very proud of you!!
