Awards and Magic Hugs

On October 5th Glenn of Man Over Board gave me The Circle of Friends award. Thanks a million Glenn. You too have become a very good blogging buddy.

Here's what Glenn said about this award:
Yesterday I was given my very first award. It is called Circle Of Friends Award, from a stunning human being by the name of Roschelle. She devotes her free time, writing a blog called Inconsequential Logic . A beautifully done blog, whose byline is “Blogging tips, opinions on life, work and play. A hodgepodge of wonderful things!”. The reason she gave me the award is she also received one from a fellow blogger that she became friends with. So she Paid It Forward and thought of me. Now I am doing the same.

Besides Roschelle’s blog I am giving this award to 5 other bloggers, who have been a great help to this blog and myself. But more importantly they have become new found friends. I highly recommend these six blogs for you to check out and enjoy. I read each of them I on a daily basis. 

Here's the rest of Glenn's picks:

Womens Self Esteem This is a great blog to garner information on the opposite sex. Being this is a guys blog, I must tell you how much you can learn from Dorothy and her great style of writing.

Comedy Plus I love, love this blog. I start out each day with a new joke and a laugh. Sandee does such a wonderful job of making people happy. You can’t go wrong stopping by and putting a smile on your face :-)

Men’s Big & Tall Outfitters
Just as the name states, this blog is fantastic reading filled with information on how larger built guys should dress. From suits to dress down. Robert also gives you plenty of links on where to find good buys also.

Ticking The Clocks Jessica is an American in Australia . She traveled there because of love. Not only is she beautiful on the outside, but inside as well. Her blog is a compendium of her Brooklyn rants and raves, with a touch of new found air of Eucalyptus .

Inspirations for the Day Another great blog to start your day off with. This one of course is full of Inspirational thoughts and pictures. Sibel is the proud owner of this elegant site. I hope you will all find the time to stop by here and ad a comment or two. You won’t be sorry!

Here's Mary's picks:

Anna Lee of Ga'hooleTree Designs never does anything half-way, not in her jewelry or anything else. She's the head of eSmarts, the Etsy Street Team that I'm an associate of. I never quite became a jewelry seller as I'd hoped to be. But I learned a lot from hanging around Anna Lee and the rest of the eSmarts Team. They're a great bunch and most of that is due to Anna Lee.

Funnyrunner of Literally Laughing Out Loud knows how to find the funny side of life. You really will laugh out loud when you read her blog. I'm thinking of putting up a sign in my house similar to one she has pictured on her blog, "Warning....House infested with Dog Hair. Enter at your own risk!"

Kristi of The Story Siren reviews YA Books and does author interviews. She reviews all kinds of books, but my favorites are the paranormal ones. She recently did a piece on "Demon Princess: Reign or Shine" by Michelle Rowen about a young girl who finds out she's half demon. Kristi describes it as "cute, quick, fun!"

Sandee of Comedy Plus is a great gal whose blog serves up a laugh just about every day of the year. So, if you need a moment of relaxation and a chuckle, head on over to her blog. She's no stranger to Blog Awards. In fact she got at least two last month. But I don't think she has this one yet.

Shannon of Rocks in My Dryer has a quick wit and can get you laughing about real life even as she gets you thinking. You'll recognize yourself and your family in most of what she writes. I know I do.

Waxela of Spirit Mama Art and Soul is an incredible one-of-a-kind art doll maker. I especially like the look of her paranormal works. She puts so much detail and emotion into each and every one!

On October 10th Pam of Finding Pam gave me the Open Source Blog Post Award. Thank you so very much Pam. I'm very honored.

On October 12th Ettarose of Sanity on Edge gave me her magic hugs award. There's nothing better than an award from Ettarose. Thank you so much. I'm glad you think my hugs are magic.

Here's what she said about this personal award:

I have two things to tell you about. The first one is everything is fine and the problem has resolved itself. Second thing is I am VERY touched by the responses I got from you all. I thank you for your comments and in fact because inside I am really mushy, I want those of you who commented on the apology post to have this award. It is not much, but I want you to know what you mean to me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I hope you enjoy this homemade appreciation.

A great big thank you again to Glenn, Mary Anne, Pam, Ettarose and Bing. You are just the best of the best.

  1. Sandee I think you probably have every award any blogger ever thought of. And you deserve every one of them. Thank you so much for mentioning the other blogs I had given the award to, they are like you ONE in a Million. God Bless

  2. Hi Sandee!

    Robert Barr here from Men's Big and Tall. Glenn told me that you mentioned the site so I wanted to stop by and say thank you! Then I fell in love with the place! My fav read so far...? Men vs. Women!

    Thanks again!

  3. Cheers Sandee for the mention. I still lurk on here every so often although I've been a good slacker for a bit and have been a bit silent.

    Anyhoo, some girly cheers & hugs for you! :-)

  4. Sandee, I am so happy for you that you have received many more well deserved awards. Have you thought of a blog for just your awards? hehe!

    Have a great week,

  5. Congrats! and thanks for the mention. So so sweet of you!

  6. Sandee! You blog award queen you! And yes, you DO deserve them all.

    Glad you had a fun 10 days of boating ... glad you only gained like ... half a pound! Maybe one and a half. AWESOME!

    I was at 165.5 this morning. Don't know how I managed it. But tonight I made up for it by getting the BIG tub of popcorn at the movie theater WITH the refill! Wonder what the scale will shout in the morning? ha.


    I love you Sandee!


    p.s. Welcome home.

    I'm *thinking* of doing that 30 question thing.

  7. Congratulations Sandee!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. woowoo, I'd give you all those awards too. I love your spirit in the blogs!

  9. Sandee, you do really good with these awards. In case I miss when you do it, would you please someday put them all on one post. I know you have too many to put on your sidebar. Thank you.
    I would have flunked out of vet school before I ever heard what to do next time. :-) Good joke!
    I'm coming up now and wish you a HAPPY HOT DAY!
    You deserve that too!

  10. Wow! Congratulations! I know that you deserve that award! Really admirable! Congratulations to the other winners also.:)

  11. I knew I was right in giving you that award. So many people obviously think like I do. You are a very sweet and warm person and you make every one of us feel like we are your best friend when you visit. I am honored to know you.


Thank you for stopping by my little corner of the blogosphere. All comments are very much appreciated.

♥♥♥Have a terrific day.♥♥♥
