Yay, I got a few Awards! Y'all ARE reading about my Nutty Life

I have a few bloggy awards that I have received recently...well, one of them was almost 2 months ago. I just got another one yesterday and I figured I better get to showing off my awards as well as giving them away. I am working on getting caught up with some of the things on my list of things to do, and now I can scratch this off my list.

This first one is from Brandi over at My Three Bubs. She awarded me with the Splash Award, given to alluring, amusing, inspiring, bewitching, and/or impressive blogs. Awww, how sweet, thanks so much for the love!

The award does come with rules though, and here they are:

1) Post the award on your blog/post.
2) Nominate 9 other deserving blogs. (I actually couldn't keep it to 9)
3) Let your friends know they have been chosen by leaving them a comment.
4) Link back to the person who gave it to you.

My Nominees are:

1) Rose
2) Emily
5) Sophie
7) Krysti

My second award is from Mindy over at Because I SAID SO.... She awarded me with the Honest Scrap award given to others whose blogs you find brilliant in content and/or design, or those who have encouraged you. Thank you so much for the love!

This award comes with some rules as well:

1) Must thank the person who gave the award and list their blog and link it.
2) Share "10 Honest Things" about yourself.
3) Present this award to 7 others whose blogs you find brilliant in content and/or design, or those who have encouraged you.
4) Tell those 7 people they've been awarded HONEST SCRAP and inform them of these guidelines in receiving the award.

10 Honest things about myself:

1) I don't like hot coffee, only iced coffee, so when it gets too cold I start drinking hot tea.
2) I refuse to by coke...because it is so bad for us, but if it is in my house I will drink it like it is going out of style.
3) If I was 10 years younger and independently wealthy, I would have 5 more kids.
4) I am terrified of spiders and screamed like a girl today when I found a monster spider in my laundry room today.
5) I love my family with all my heart, more than anything in the world.
6) I love to cook and bake, but if I am overwhelmed I feed my kids cereal for dinner.
7) I wear my heart on my sleeve.
8) My favorite video game is Zelda and has been for the past 20 years when I played The Legend of Zelda for hours on end.
9) I cut my own hair, and dye it with henna.
10) My husband is 6 1/2 years younger than me.

So that is my Honest Scrap.

And now to nominate 7 other bloggers:

2) Ann
4) Beth
5) Maura

Whew, that was hard to choose from my huge list of so many great bloggers!

Fun, thanks! I can't wait to see how that hat looks on you. I'm thinking of making similar one for myself (as if I need more hand-knit hats...)

Maura said...

Thanks mama! This should be fun. I am loving your blog. I have been trying to get caught up on all that I missed. Oh by the way, I am so terrified of spiders I get nervous every time I go in my basement, even though I have only seen one down there once, and it was so tiny:)

Thank you! I am all smiles. :)

I love your blog and love reading it with my morning cup of joe. Love to you.

Maura said...

Hey I had a question. I am still pretty new at this so I am not sure how to make links to peoples blogs show up as their name. Any suggestions? Thanks so much!!

Lisa Curcio said...

Maura, I send you an email. I used the email address on your blog. I hope it helps :)

Ann said...
