Aw Shucks … (Blush)

By , September 4, 2008 9:05 pm

Here is a catching up, but grateful post:

On August 5th, Arwen of Walk Beside Me kindly bestowed upon me a Brillante Weblog Award! Thanks so much and I am sorry I didn’t officially “accept” this sooner. You must all be tired of hearing me make excuses for my summer…but it has been busy (really).

Anyhow, thanks so much Arwen. The longer I have this blog, the more I really appreciate nice comments and gestures like this one!

Here are the rules:
1. The winner can put the logo on their blog.
2. Link to the person you received your award from.
3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
4. Put links of those blogs on yours.
5. Leave a message on the blogs you’ve nominated.

I am going to nominate seven of the great many nice blogs that I have “met” via my Unplugged Project. I have “met” so many great blogs through the project that it is hard to pick just seven!

Julie K in Taiwan
Bella Luna
Raising Explorers
Learning Through Living (Explore Academy)
Homeschooling Fun
My Family Loves It
Bare Baby Feet

Thank you again Arwen, it was a lovely surprise!


Kate from Homeschooling in the Garden State just sent another bit of blog love my way, an I Love Your Blog Award.

Her writeup of all her nominees was so well-done! I don’t know that I can be as entertaining, but I’ll try.

These days real life tends to get the better of my time and I don’t get around as much as I would like, but when I can, I enjoy Celtic Mommy and her projects, delicious recipes and cheerfullness. I have been following her blog with interest since its very beginning, and she is always delightful.

Again, I don’t stop in often enough, but I enjoy reading about Greenemother and her adorable daughter Emma. The Owl and the Pussycat is one of those lovely, relaxing blogs, and the photos are gorgeous!

I also like to visit Becky of Boys Rule My Life who blogs about life with three boys (well, four I guess, if you count her husband). She is raising funds right now to walk for ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) research. If you can help her meet her goal, that would be terrific. Having had an aunt with ALS, I know it is a horrible disease and a very worthy cause. Here is a link to her ALS Walk fundraising page.

Finally, whenever I need a large dose of reality accompanied by a laugh, I know I can always stop by Jen at Never a Dull Moment. She says it like it is!

Thank you Kate, you made my day!

    Aw, thanks! It’s my first blog award. I’m so excited. Now, I will have to think for a couple days who I want to pass it on to.

    In the meantime, I tried to return the gesture and tagged you to reveal 6 unspectacular quirks about yourself.

  2. Thanks for the award! Now I have to get around to nominating some others. Hope you are doing better. Looking forward to a “soft” project this weekend. Haven’t gotten to it yet but it is a fun one!

    Thank you! That’s my first blog award! :) I feel honored, because I admire you. I read your “Fears” post, and I started to cry when you got to the part about what you’re thinking about when you’re picking up the floor. I already knew that you weren’t perfect, I can hear in your tone that you know that you (and all of us) are flawed. You are a good, strong (you’re a pilot afterall), opinionated woman, and it’s wonderful to read about your life. In a work-related analogy, I see your blog as sharing “best practices.” Being unplugged works for you, and though I’m not unplugged, I admire those who aspire to do it. So if you have to, keep hitting the “delete” button and know that you have friends!

    Thanks! I’m too tired to put it up though so don’t be insulted (plus I always forget how to do those things)! Did I mention I’m tired, can being 32 weeks pregnant be my excuse for everything? I doubt we’ll get to “soft” this week unless I can nap and take a picture of my pillow!

    Thanks so much, this is my first award and very unexpected! I’ve had so much fun checking out the other winners as well. It’s been a long week, and I’m hoping to get to soft, but who knows…
