My First Award: “Bouquet of Three”

Bouquet of three award

What a happy day to wake and see a post with MY blog listed as a “Bouquet of Three” award nominee!  It truly is the little things in life that bring happy smiles to my face and being nominated for my first award brought a big one!

Thank you to Atlantamomofthree for this award. I am honored that you enjoy my posts as I think highly of you and the support that you offer to so many people.

Here are the rules:

  1. Display the Award Certificate on your website/blog.
  2. Announce your win with a post. Make sure to post a link back to me as a ‘thank you’ for the nomination.
  3. Present up to 15 awards to deserving bloggers.
  4. Drop them a comment to tip them off after you have linked them in the post.
  5. Post 7 interesting things about yourself.

Things about me:

  1. I eat popcorn anywhere from 5-7 evenings a week
  2. I love everything about coconuts
  3. If I could be anybody in my next life, I would be a lead actress in a Broadway musical.
  4. I once took a shot of vodka with a preserved human toe floating in it
  5. In every new apartment, house, or hotel, I always look for the perfect “place to have my coffee” but rarely ever use it these days.
  6. I am guilty of exclamation point overuse and have to watch myself that I’m not accidentally yelling in my writing.
  7. My favorite color is green, every shade and hue, but I strongly dislike the color burgundy.

And the nominations go to (suspenseful pause):

Momtimes4-I love her humor in her drawings; their simplicity captures so many elements of parenting that one could write or talk about for hours.

Chasing A Daredevil and Twins-The stick figure drawings matched with her matter of fact writing gives me a good laugh. She seems to take life with 3 kids with a grain of salt and not get bogged down, I need more of that!

Littlemissperfect-Her writing is poetic and funny but also meaningful and scratches far beneath the surface of everyday life. I really enjoy her writing style.

Everyone is Welcome-I love Ms. Vee’s beautiful, honest poetry. It hits a nerve and gives me goosebumps and tears quite often.

Misplacedmysassy-First of all, I love the name of her blog. She’s pithy and funny and I feel like we could have a lot of fun over a bottle of wine.

Rantings from the Lunacy of Motherhood-I love her hysterical and slightly self-deprecating style. Each post gives me a giggle and I can relate to so much of what she describes.

The Fortunate Artist-I just came across this artist/writer. I am very impressed by her creativity and her talent to write fables about stranger’s photographs. They are beautiful.

Scottishmomus-Wise, beautiful, thoughtful poetry.

Modernmanofthecloth-I love hearing his views on parenting. It is refreshing to hear the male perspective when I read and talk with so many female friends. So very relatable and his positivity is infectious.

So there you have it; there are so many blogs that I really enjoy reading, but these stand out to me now.

You may accept the award if you choose and I won’t be offended if you don’t.

Thank you for the pleasure of your posts!

  2. Congratulations again! 😀 I love how these blog awards can make our day!
    LOL, wow, that is a lot of popcorn! Do your kids like it too? I used to work at a movie theater and then couldn’t stand the smell of it for YEARS. O_O
    I use too many exclamation marks too. 🙄

  3. Thanks for the nomination. 🙂 I am definitely going to check out the other nominees. I am the queen of elipses… … … I think I have several in every blog, and have noticed that I can’t post on facebook without including one…
