You like me, you REALLY like me...... sob, sniff

I would like to thank my mother, and my husband, oh and my kids and the academy.... oh wait, its not that type of award... but it is so very flattering. I would blog if no one was reading for my own sanity, but the fact that others read it, and really like it, is humbling and I couldn't be more grateful that you put up with me.

I am pretty proud of myself that I finally figured out how these work.... so here goes.....

Rainbowmummy honored me with this proximity award:

This award is given to a blog that invests and believes in PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind of bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers!


And now for the passing it on part.... I can't say it any better than rainbowmummy, who actually made me snort soda out my nose when I read her addendum... "as always feel free to ignore this if you don't want to play (I know the awards scream of chain mail-but it's not like I am saying a monkey will poo on your mums head unless you play in four days or anything), rules are meant to be broken and if you don't take it just know that you are loved and let me give your blog a recommendation."

In no certain order...

Carrie at The Story of My World
Terra at Mom of 3 boys
Melanie at The Wright Family
Clarissa at The Ridge Report
Rob at Horton Hollow

I love you all, I read you each time you post, you make my life a little lighter by reading about yours.

Thank you so very much! I must be honest... I love awards, not because I love awards but because is someone gives me an award I assume that I might in some small way be betteting their life!

You absolutely better mine!


Rob said...

Thank you thank you :) I'm honored you thought to include me on this, honest. Your blogs are a source of laughter, good thoughts, good eats, and most importantly .. your special brand of quirkiness of which I hope you never run out!

I'm a better guy for you knowing you. :) Thanks for being so very coolio!

Jennifer said...

It is so true, and I am so glad that you like it.

Jennifer said...

Clearly any man who can use coolio in a sentence deserves the honor.

I doubt I will ever, ever run out of quirkiness. I have tried to rid myself of it, but it is here to stay!

Melanie said...

Thank you so much for including my blog! I love reading yours and look forward to each new post!

No surprise to me, I've always said you're creative and a lovely woman. Getting some outside confirmation just lends me some credibility so you will hopefully stop ignoring me...Brian

Here's to honesty..(I'm holding up a coffee cup). I love your "realness". Motherhood is the best & hardest job all in one. I love when people are honest w/ the unpopular side: messy house, laundry piled high, living room "vortex". Only because I think there are more like us than not. Despite what we're told. I read all your stuff & ..I love you too man!!!
