I'm always late at this... sorry.

Elyse from Following Him, and Linny from A Place Called Simplicity both sent a Sisterhood award my way. Thank you sisters!

I have to admit... sitting down to my email after a long day and checking the comments and emails from y'all... that sure feels like sisterhood. From across the miles, I get to laugh with you, cry with you, and pray with you - and I would love to one day be able to return the favor in person.

Here's the rundown. Though you know I'm really iffy with rules, so I might not get the number right...

1. Put the logo on your blog or post.
2. Nominate at least 10 blogs which show great Attitude and/or Gratitude!
3. Be sure to link to your nominees within your post.
4. Let them know that they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
5. Share the love and link to this post and to the person from whom you received your award.

Please go check these Sisters out and I bet you'll find some new favorites!

Pam from Life By the Creek - is a new friend who feels like an old one. I mean, a longtime one. Not that you're old Pam. Sorry. Her blog is refreshing and encouraging and I wish we lived next door.

Pam at Twenty Little Piggies - she is a HOOT! This girl can write and I love reading her comments. Serious exercise in bladder control when she's on a roll. I know she stays busy, but it's a real treat when she knocks out a post. Umm... can I have TWO Pam's for neighbors please?

Mimi at He & Me + 3 - everybody knows (and loves) Mimi right? This girl gets around to leaving such sweet comments on everyone's blogs... she must have lightning fingers! And she already got this award, but I'm sending it on again because her attitude/gratitude exactly fit it!

Melody from Slurping Life - this woman has had me in tears more times than I can count. Go read... I guarantee you'll be touched by the depth of her love for her boys. She's like my RESET button for attitude... I love you Melody and am so glad you're back to blogging.

Jenny from JennyKate's Spot - the ironic thing about Jenny is that I found her a long time ago (I think I'd saved a post about a great idea for a kid activity), but had never commented. Then out of the blue one day, she left a comment on our blog and it came full circle! She's a fun chick who also does a weekly "Thankful Thursday"... how encouraging!

Elaine at Matters of the Heart - her recent "love fest" was a terrific way to break out of the winter doldrums. It was perfect for remembering all the things we're grateful for, even when life isn't easy. And talk about cute kids!

Dana from Chaos to Grace - you know how you can have emails that turn into books because you can talk about any and everything? That's Dana. Sometimes friends just fit. Want to talk gratefulness? Head over and read her posts. Oh and... (ahem) she's the one who prettied up Itty Bit's iHeartFaces shot - she's the best!

Toldya I was no good with rules. Thank you to all you Sisters!

And just for kicks... here's my In Real Life one.

Yes, she's taller than me, and will probably use that to full advantage in the beatdown I'll be getting after she sees this picture. Love you Ju.

Better late than never :) Glad you got it least you remembered too :) Hope your having a great weekend!

Mr. Daddy said...

You shouldn't be letting everyone see your sexy side like that DEAR....

You know how jealous I am, and how pictures of you like that drive me wild!!!!!! Better be watching your back......LOL

Rachel said...

Oh, you are SO busted Mister!

You only posted that to get a reaction and you are gonna be hurtin' for certain! :)

Yes, it worked, ya big lug.

Pam D said...

Awww, my sister.. I don't have a real-life one, just a stinky ol' brother. So, I'm thrilled to be your sister! :<) And, you have the distinction of awarding me my very FIRST blog award... thank you! Ummm..Mr. Daddy... I'm not quite sure WHAT to say, other than YOU might be the one who needs to watch your back after that comment... lol! Bad Daddy.. BAD Daddy.....

Pam said...

I'm trying hard not to lose my temper with my child. I was finishing up my original comment when a neighbor popped in to return something to me and Caroline seized the computer and erased everything. Argh!

Note to self: Try to remain calm. Plus, no kids on computer for the remainder of the day.

Getting back on track, however, I would like to thank you for another lovely award. We are indeed a sisterhood of great friends. I'm so glad to have found your blog and so love getting to keep up with all of your "goings on" out there.

You are too kind. Seriously! Thank you for passing this onto me. I so wish that we lived closer so we could hang out. Our boys could do so much with Sharpies together:)

Shanda said...

Congrats on your award! Your dialogue with your hubby cracked me up!

Loving the text messages! :)

And sis, thanks for adding me to the sisterhood.

Love, me.

Rachel, you are the sweetest, and I am so glad I found you. It has not been that long, and I already love you. I just want to spend a few days going back and reading everything.

Thank you so much for the sweet award. I am really bad and always late at re-posting awards.

I loved that last picture with your sister, it made my night.

I'm already for Tuesday, can't wait.

Have a good night,


Lisa said...

LOVE the picture with your sis! You guys look ALOT alike! She needs to work on how far she can stick her tongue out, though. You SOOO have her beat. LOL

Pam D said...

OK, my dear, dear friend.. I have posted my award with great pride! And I found an unexpected blessing in doing so; as I listed my award winners, I realized just how very fortunate I am to have so many friends.. I suppose THAT is real reward that you get from this award! Thank you again....hugs...

Oh my child doesn't EVER play with sharpies either. Ever. And we would NEVER laugh so hard when she call them TATTOOS! HAHAHAHA! And I don't especially love it when she 'tattoos' Daddy's legs and then he goes out in SHORTS forgetting he has sharpie all over his legs. ;) I'm such a loving wife...

Thank you my dear! I, too, wish we lived closer!! I LOVE MiMi's blog! She is hilarious! I also simply ADORE Pam's blog as well! She just makes me FEEL BETTER, yk?
