One Lovely Blog Award

Wow, not only did we have a great family weekend, we found out that Nicole at http://nmnphx.wordpress.com/ awarded our little family blog the One Lovely Blog Award.  Nicole is a versatile blogger, she writes about personal experiences as well as her opinion on what’s going on in the world.  I have to save when I first came across Nicole’s blog, I was interested in the name, NMNPHX, it had me curious of it’s origin.  It’s really quite orginal…look her up to see how it came to be and take a peek at her posts, I promise you won’t be sorry you did.

As I am learning, most blog awards, have a few rules and this one is no exception:

  1. Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them.
  2. Reveal 7 items about yourself.
  3. Nominate 15 other bloggers for the award.

So here goes……

Nicole, a very heartfelt “Thank You” from all of us….. for liking our family blog enough to send this award our way.  When we started this blog a few months ago I never thought anyone but family and close friends would follow our adventures.  We are honored you selected us as one of your nominee’s.  http://nmnphx.wordpress.com/

Reveal 7 items about yourself (Can I copy from another award criteria?  Just kidding.)

  1. My little family has been through a few rough spots over the last 5 years, friends and family are waiting for me to stop answering the phone with “What’s wrong?”  I’m sorry guys, I’m working on it.
  2. If I could visit any place in the world it would be Italy…Tuscany, Rome and Positano
  3. If I could have an endless supply of food it would be any type of pasta with sauce (whites sauces are my favorite)
  4. I am a horrible passenger in the car….Papa Walt is very close to making me walk (just kidding about the walking part – at least I think he is)
  5. My ideal job would be one where I am self-employed (with employees – my children) so that I could have time with my grandchildren.
  6. I used to be a compulsive cleaner….since our grandchildren came along it became a lot easier to say “I’ll do it another day, it can wait.”  I do….an it does.
  7. I hate anything last minute…..I am not spontaneous and don’t like surprises.

Following are my nominations for the One Lovely Blog Award.  They are not listed in any particular order and are all blogs that I enjoy looking forward to daily.  Take a peek I think you’ll like them to:

  1. Thank you so much for the award.
    I love that you thought of me.
    However, I am a really lazy Granny….
    Not only lazy but I don’t know how to do the links etc. 🙂

  2. Thank you very much! And congratulations to you as well! 🙂 As I was looking around your blog for this award post — I saw a whole slew of other award posts — wow! Your blog looks so nice and I can’t wait to check it out when I return from my summer blogging break. For now, I wanted to take a moment to say thank you for thinking of me, and wish you a happy rest of the summer.
