I’m accepting awards…FINALLY

I’m so terrible at accepting awards. I get them, I say awwwwww, how sweet, save the pic of the award then forget to do anything with it.
Jennifer of J.Leigh Designz is a super sweetie and my new buddy.

I’m jealous she has a boat and she’s jealous I go to the beach LOL
She gave me the Most Wonderful Favorite award!!!!!
“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.”

Then my good friend who I miss dearly, Lauren from 4 Baby and Mom gave me the One Lovely Blog Award. She’s a strong woman and great mom and a loving wife and I wish we lived closer.
Thank you fantastic ladies for the great awards. I promise I will pass them on.
love ya! (if you gave me an award and I haven’t accepted it please feel free to bash me on your blog)

It’s Award Time

I’m so loved! The famous Sandy is so wonderful to me. She gave me some awards. When does she have time to hand out awards? Between her review blog, her organizing blog and her family blog and all the other projects she working on and her job and her 8 kids we all should be giving her awards.

I’m giving awards too.
Marianna at Green Mama Pad

Susan at Life in a House of Blue

Mamas you deserve these awards and so much more. Thanks for the awesome reads and sweet support.

The Love Ya Award

I’m touched, seriously I am. I’ve been kinda blah all week so this was a great boost.
Erin from The Mom Buzz has awarded me The Love Ya Award, here is what she had to say
“I knew Melinda would be an awesome blogger when she started just a short time ago. She has a knack for finding the freshest, coolest stuff for moms and kids”

Here is who I’m giving The Love Ya Award to…

My friend Sandy of Organize with Sandy has given me an award! I’m so glad I have blogging buddies who show so much support for other blogging mamas.

In order to accept this award I have to pass it on to other bloggers who I feel deserve it. These blogs deserve this reward as a thank you for the support they have shown me and other mamas whether is was for some tech support, blogging questions or a for a boost of confidense.
