Oh My Goodness!






This week, I have recieved 3 more awards! I cannot believe it! I am so happy, thrilled, and flattered that so many people actually read my blog, and, it seems, enjoy it too!






Thank you thank you from the bottom of my heart. It just so happens that I read and thoroughly enjoy yours too!!!







Sonora gave me this lovely award









The rules for this award are:

Put the logo on your blog or within your post.


Pass the award onto 12 bloggers.


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.

Sherri and Casey both awarded me with this wonderful award:






The rules for accepting this award are as follows:

1.Post a thank you and the link to the person that gave you the award.

2.Pass this award on to fifteen bloggers you've recently discovered

& whom you think are fantastic.

3.Contact said blogs to let them know they've won.

4.State seven things about yourself.



1. I used to Irish Dance, but I broke my ankle, and it messed me up for life.


2. I broke said ankle on the Alpine Slide in Park City, Utah. My EMT boyfriend-at-the-time told me it wasn't broken. It was.


3. I play Dungeons and Dragons. My husband is often the DM. (It pays to be sleeping with the Dungeon Master.)


4. I make fairy wings, dress like a fairy, and take pictures. All the time. Seriously. I have more costumes, makeup, wigs, and prosthetics than I do actual normal clothes...do you think I'm weird yet?


5. I would really LOVE for you to check out http://www.spoonsforscarlet.etsy.com/ to read Scarlet's story. It has a HAPPY ending, and we are hoping to help MORE children have happy endings. It would also be great for you to grab her button (Left sidebar) so that others can help us too!


6. I once had an orthodontist yank a tooth out of my mouth- it still had the roots. No, it didn't hurt, but that was probably because my nerves were too shocked to notice pain. IT bled a lot.


7. I'm a really good singer and actor. I'd love to persue the stage, but Lilly and I did that last July, and it kicked my trash- not to mention my kids trash, who had to spend many evenings up late, and with baby sitters. I can't hold a captive audience again until my kids are a little older.


Okay, so, if I were to explicitly obey all the rules of this game, I would have to find 42 blogs to award! OMG! So, I am awarding both blogs to 15 beautiful, sunshiny, spectacular blogs. And they can pass on the love. (And everyone TOTALLY needs to click on these links and check them out. I'm not giving them an award for nothing.)



1.Dumb Mom

2.Mommy Wants Vodka

3.Mommy Drinks Because You Cry

4.Rusty Southern Belle

5.The Un-Experienced Mom

6.Miss Dot's Cupcake spot

7.Come Have A Peace

8.Casey (Who doesn't HAVE to pick the Beautiful Blogger award up IF she doesn't want to- but she DEFINATELY deserves the first one!)

9.Faemom

10.Sherri (Who, like Casey, does not HAVE to pick up the Beautiful blogger award and start all over, but she also deserves, in full, the first blogging award!)

11.Grandma's Briefs

12.Janae (Who ALSO gave me the Beautiful Blogger award a few weeks ago- and so, if she doesn't want it, she doesn't HAVE to redo it. BUT, You DO have to pick up the first award!!!)

15. The Girl Next Door Grows Up

(OH! And for all those awesome people who have been asking me about the fairy pictures- go to www.thegossamerjewelbox.blogspot.com to see some- though you'll have to scroll around. They're all over the blog.)

Wow, thanks for the shout out! And really- fairies? Where are the pictures?

Casey said...

Lisa said...

Thank you, Brae! Yeah, I'm curious about the fairy costumes, too!

To be on a list with Faemom has been my dream for like days! I mean weeks (I haven't been blogging for years, but it feels like it sometimes). You gave her an award and me the same award? What the what?! I'd like to see your rubruc, Ms. NOT a VOLCANO 'cause seriously, if she's an A I've got to be an F. Or, maybe I'm the A? Anyway, point is I'm thankful and happy and stuff. I can not guarantee that I will follow the rules of said award but I might...if I'm not to tired, too hungry, or too lazy. Bet you are already regretting my inclusion!
