Lemonade Stand and Sunshine Awards

I was so honored this last week to receive the Lemonade Stand Award, not just once, but twice, first from Julie, at Just Playin' Around, and then from Ticia, at Adventures in Mommydom, and I want to thank both of them.

The rules of the accepting this award are:

  • Put the lemonade stand logo on your blog, or in your post.

  • Nominate at least 10 blogs with great attitude, or gratitude.

  • Link the nominees within your post.

  • Let the nominees know they have received this award by commenting on their blog.

  • Share the love, and link to the person from whom you received this award.

I also received the Sunshine Award from Tinkr at Living With Fairies.

The rules for accepting it are pretty much the same as for the Lemonade Stand Award, minus the bit about attitude, and gratitude.

I was concerned at first, as to whether I was familiar with enough blogs, who had not recently received these awards themselves, to pass the awards along to. Then, I realized the answer was in my side bar, with my 51 wonderful followers. You people make my day, and have added a lot of sunshine to my blogging experience. Some of you are new in the last few days, and some of you have been hanging around for a while. I appreciate so much, the fact, that at one point or another, you've found this blog interesting enough to follow. Thank you!!!

Some of you followers of mine do not have blogs, and some of you have inactive blogs, or I couldn't tell which of your blogs to link below. And finally, some of you have just received one of these awards yourself, or I gave you an award within the last few months. If you don't fall into any of these categories, then I'd like to nominate you for one of these awards. You can pick the one you want, or take them both if you like.

If you follow this blog, and don't fall into any of the above categories, and I missed linking you below, then please know it was purely by mistake. I consume large amounts of caffeine, and sugar, which offer no assistance in the area of concentration. So, if you don't see your blog, and you should, let me know, and I'll fix the oversight immediately. Or, if I missed it, and you just received one of these awards, then I'll leave it up to you, if you want to pass on it, or pass it on.

Also, I'm very aware of the chain lettery quality of these awards, so if you'd rather not accept one, don't worry, it won't hurt my feelings (too much). But, whether you take the award, or not, I hope you'll accept my gratitude for your presence on my side bar.

The nominees in no particular order are:
