Blog Botox and Awards!!

You may have noticed my blog got some botox.  It got infused with my favorite color, a new header and a cute as a button, button.  It is all thanks to one of my best-bloggy-sista-friends, Jackie at House of Sarager.  She has awesome links on her blog to great how-to-sites and if you are a blog moron like myself, word on the street is, she will work to support her Amazon habit.  Thank you Jackie!!

I have been putting off an award ceremony for awhile.  I was hoping to lose a few pounds before I walked down the red carpet again.  But those dang Lindor chocolates are just too good.  So I am accepting these awards in a dress I borrowed from Kirstie Alley.  She seemed to have lots of different sizes and they already had chocolate stains.

First thanks goes to Sarah at No, Don't and Stop!...The shenanigans of a single mom... who bestowed me with The Versatile Blogger award.  Sarah is a cute mom and awesome blogger.  Thank you Sarah!!

And to inflate my already over inflated bloggy ego, Lourie at CA Girl gave the Sunshine Award!  She is a Calif. mama, and a bloggy sista from another mother.

So I guess I am a "Versitile-Ray-of-Sunshine"  Bwahahahaha.  Almost got that out without laughing.    

Awards usually come with rules but being the Kayne West of awards that I am, I will make up my own rules.  I am supposed to share some things you may not know about me.  Hmmmmmm.....Not much I have not spilled to my readers...

1. I am kind of a "granola" when it comes to childbirth.  One epidural in six births and 
that was a c-secion.  Last one I had at home with a midwife.  But yes, I shave my armpits. 

2. I want to be a contestant on "So You Think You Could Dance."  
My speciallty would be 80's line dances.  

3.  I love my dog.  His love is unconditional.   

Okay, that's all you are getting from me right now.  Now I get to bestow these awards onto some of my favorite bloggers.  Yea there are two awards, so you can choose which one you like best or the one that matches your blog.  Whatever.  Just take it and run before I change my mind.  So in no particular order...

Cheeseboy at Blog O' Cheese.  He was the first man not related to me, to comment on my blog.  He is a dad and teacher.  And he is funny for a boy, that also blogs. 

Lisa at Blue and Shoe.  She is cute, funny and you NEVER know what is going to come out of her mouth.  She is an awesome blogging friend and we hope to get drunk on Dr. Pepper together at CBC. 

Leanne at From Chaos Comes Hapiness (love the name).  A mommy blogger with a cute as heck disposition and blog.  

Lisa at Reasonably Chubby.  The name says it all about her sense of self and humor!  You never know what you're going to get!

Serene at Serene is my name, Not my life!  She was one of my first followers that was not related to me and gave me my first award.  She is not only the cutest mommy and blogger AND an amazing artist.  Poke around her blog a bit!

Okay, I am tired (which in this case means I don't want to type up anymore links!).  Please go give all these blogs a look-see. 

I am going to take off my gown and go work out with Kristie.

GET OUT! (no - don't really go anywhere...cause I'd miss you terribly...) But GET OUT! You are giving ME a blog award?!?! My heart skipped a beat when I saw my name listed - because, I happen to think that YOU are awesome. So coming from you - I feel EXTRA blessed. Thanks so much for the mention and good cheer! Your comments always brighten my day, and I constantly enjoy visiting your space here. (TRIPE LOVE the botox blog job - so jazzy fun!) Thanks, again, Linda! O Happy Day!!

Cheeseboy said...

I am so very honored to be given an award from See Mom Smile. See me smile (because of the award and all) is more like it. "Funny for a man, that blogs" is perhaps the greatest compliment I have ever received in my life.

(I live a shallow life.)

And I was the first guy ever to comment on your blog?! That must have been before the girly makeover.

Sincerely, thank you. I will probably respond on the morrow...

MrsDixon said...

Love the bloggy cosmetic surgery! Looks great!

Hey Linda! My Lord, I feel famous all of the sudden...I'd like to thank the academy, and Linda for noticing and mentioning my blog. :) Thankyou so much for the award!! I'm reinspired to share with the world my junior high angst, and other important details of my life whether they want me to or not.

Unknown said...

YAY! So glad you like!

Kristina P. said...

Look at your new bloggy house! It looks awesome!

Vanessa said...

You're all pretty in pink! I didn't have an epidural with either of mine, but that's just 'cause I'm terrified of needles. I lived though! And if I had another, I probably would do it without again!

Charlotte said...

The new design looks great. I love the tag line "6 kids by choice, insanity by default." So, so true.

Lourie said...

I LOVE your new look! When it loaded up, I went, "WOW!" Congrats on your awards.

Serene is my name, not my life! said...

Lovity love your new blog look! Such bling!

And ah shucks... *sniff* thanks! I feel so honored!
I just wish I had worn my sexy heels for the occasion!

Karen Mortensen said...

The new look, looks great. So cheery. I am in the process of getting a new look too. Can't wait.

Would you PLEASE tell me how to give and get blog awards? I would like to give some out. Thanks.

I love your bloggy makeover!!!! Congrats on the awards too!

Krista said...

So you think you can dance? See Mom Dance - kinda catchy. Thanks for not giving me an award - I have been inundated with them and to come up with another speech would have just about drained every creative dust spec I have left. Bwahaha! (Remember the "If I laugh, that's YOUR cue to laugh"?
