My first awards for 2009 and I still can't believe I got one, let alone two! How cool is that? Especially since we all know I'm blog post and photography challenged! Have ya'll met Tardevil? She's lives in a house divided which she shares the special funny antics of a life lived with opposing college loyalties on her blog "Confessions of a 40 something mama queen"
You definitely should go by and give her a visit, she's a real hoot!

These friendship awards are for bloggers who are not into self-aggrandizement. I confess I wasn't 100% certain of the definition but I had a pretty fair passing idea of what that meant. This award is for bloggers who are more interested in establishing friendships than self promotion. I love sharing ideas and seeing bits of everyone lives, what's meaningful and special to them, sharing our trials and failures, being able to laugh and jump back in with another project. It's just a great big gab fest with your best girlfriends and that's what I love about the bloggers I call friends. They are women who are more interested in sharing and caring than selling, they sometimes deep down wonder why so many people leave comments on their blogs cause they just don't understand truly how sweet and wonderful they are. And they are always ready with with a warm wish of encouragement or a gentle scolding when needed *smiles*
So thank you Tardevil for this very special award and I'm geniunely sorry it took me so long to post and pass it along! And Miz Sweetie of Sweetie's World who gave me the second award which is for the same thing as the first, bloggers who are interested in friendships more than self aggrandizement.
Obviously there's a few people who come to mind when one thinks of friendship in a non self-aggrandizement way and those ladies whom I lovingly pass this award on to are:

The imperfectly wonderful and incomparable Darlene of Darlene's Days whom everyone knows and calls friend!

Miss Linda of Linda n Jake who shares her adventures with her sweet fur baby Jake

Miss Brandee of Very Berry Nice whom you just have to love inspite of her beautifully self decorated home because she is truly just so "very berry nice"

Miz Melissa of Little Things In Life who shares the cutest projects and is a smocker extraordinaire

and of course Miz Daphine of Just Stuff who shares her sweet wonderful adventures as she overcomes her pet related fears and raises her beautiful family

And Miz Rhonda of Scooterblu's Whimsy another beautifully self decorated home but you just love Miz Rhonda cause she's so darn sweet

The above mentioned Tardevil of Confessions of a 40 something Mama Queen

Finally Miz Sweetie of Sweetie's World who is a new friend but truly knows what it means to live, laugh and love every moment of life

I know I missed atleast 10 of friends who deserve these awards as well so please grab it and post it on your blog with love and friendship wishes from me! Please be sure to visit these ladies too and leave a comment cause we all know we live by the comment count on our blogs *smiles* I know I do!

On a personal note about my dental saga, I'm currently saving $$$ to have it removed by an oral surgeon so please pray for a speedy enlargement to my dental work fund *smiles* For now the antibiotics are working and the pain is lessening which is a blessing. And thanks Miz Darlene for the gentle scolding, now I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that we should be next door neighbors!

*blush* Thank you Miz Kitty! I don't know what to say!!!

Melissa Wertz said...

I hope you teefees get better. I hear that it really hurts when people have those problems. Gentle {{{{{{}}}}}}}

Darlene said...

Hey Kitty,

I am glad that Advil is helping and I do hope your "tooth removal" fund grows quickly. I am glad you didn't take offense to my gentle scolding.♥ Wouldn't it be the BEST if we lived near each other!?!? I truly think we would have a ball...though we might both have to work several jobs with all the shopping, decorating and running around that we could do!

Thanks so much for thinking of me for both of these awards. I am just going to add on my post today that you also awarded them to me.♥

tardevil said...

Congrats on 2 awards! I had already posted the one you gave me, but I am proud to add your name to my post on my blog! Thanks so super much! LOL!

Linda Lou said...

Congratulations on your awards-glad I recently found your blog, and I hope your teeth issues are resolved very soon!!

The Berry's Patch said...

Thank you Kitty for thinking of me! These are my first blog awards of the year...yeah!

I'm glad you're feeling better. It makes me wonder how our ancestors dealt with tooth pain. Cuz you know they didn't take care of their teeth back then. Nor did they have pain killers. Well maybe they just used whiskey. :-)

Pam at Antique or Not said...

Congrats on your awards, Kitty! Hope you feel better soon...

linda said...

Kitty, thank you, thank you, thank you for thinking of me and passing on these awards. They mean so much because of what they stand for! It is truly appreciated!

I'm so glad you're not experiencing tooth pain anymore. I went to the dentist yesterday myself. I agree with Darlene, and I just gave my husband the lecture last night...we need to care for our teeth. I don't mind going to the dentist because I know things are going to be better when I leave. A whiter smile and no teeth pain...that's what I aim for!

Lorrie said...

Congratulations on your awards, they are very deserved.

I sure hope your teeth are feeling better and you can get them takencare of really soon!

Jen - Balancing beauty and bedlam said...

You deserve them....praying for your dental fund, but isn't it just that horrible feeling like when you have to spend money on buying underwear. They fall in the same category. :)

Bella Casa said...

Congratulations on your well-deserved awards, hooray!

Sorry to hear about the dental woes, that is no fun. I don't know if you have dental insurance or not...but we do, but even with that, we have to pay ALOT out of pocket for anything except a's ridiculously expensive...sigh :(

I hope (other than your tooth) that you have been doing well and that your 2009 will be as awesome as you are!!!


Darlene said...

Hey girl,
I stopped back by to let you know that Lucy, though we love he to death, is also a little terror. Do you think it is the apricot color? Anyway, though she can be quite loving and want to sit in your lap and just be with you..when she plays, we constantly have to get on her and correct her (whether with the other animals or with us) cause she can just be very MEAN! I have commented several times that if she was a large dog we would have some problems. The poodles we have previously had have always been very kind and gentle and easy to train....not Lucy. We ♥ her anyway though.

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

I'm so sorry to hear about your dental problems. I've gotten a bit behind on my blogging because of the holidays and a surprising white Christmas! I thought about you when I was creating my post, or should I say my kitty. She is the one who posted our story. It's sure to bring back your smile.

Sweet wishes,
