Overdue Gratitude

Anyone else's Reader effed up today?  It has been HOURS since I've had any new posts, PLUS my morning post hasn't shown up yet on my Reader.  Thoughts?  Comments?  Feelings of distress?  

Anyway!  Reader angst aside, I have received a few awards 
this week and have been remiss in posting about them.  Jenny from Lucky in Love and Jennifer from Not Just Another Jennifer have both gifted me with the Queen of all things Awe-summmm award.

Thanks, ladies!!!  Sidenote:  several of my bloggie and real-life friends are named Jennifer.  Any thoughts to you Jennifers out there about why y'all are so fabulous?  

Anyway...I'm supposed to:
1.  List seven things that make me awe-summm.
2. Pass this award on to seven awe-summm bloggers.
3. Tag those bloggers so that they know they are now queens, too (and link back to the queen who tagged you).  

True to form, I'm going to violate the rules of this award.  I don't really want to talk about how awesome I am.  So instead, I'm going to tag seven bloggers and say why I think THEY'RE awesome!  Just...plain...awesome.  Not awe-summm.  Please refer to this post, under the letter "p." 

1.  Jenn from Jeans Friday - because she is my original blog twin.  She also has been traveling like CRAZY but still manages to blog.  
2.  Mrs. Molly Lou from Molly Lou Gifts - because she is my most recent blog twin.  Plus, she makes gorgeous stationery!  
3.  Julie from Wearing Mascara - because she just finished school!  Yay!  
4.  Jennifer from Crazy Shenanigans - because she has been dealing with lots of stuff during her boyfriend's deployment.  
5.  Kim from - because she recently ran her first half marathon!  And she totally kicked it's ass!  She is always motivating me to do my best.
6.  Brittany from Living in the Moment - because she works in the school system as well, and is counting down the days to summer just like I am!
7.  Jackie from The Northerner - because she just graduated with her master's degree!  Congrats, Jackie!!!

Whew!  That took a lot of work!  In reality, all of the bloggers I read daily are awesome.  Otherwise...I wouldn't be reading your blog!  :)

Pretty Personal Gifts gave me One Lovely Blog award.  Thank you!!!

For this award, I'm supposed to:
1) Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link.
2) Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you’ve newly discovered. Contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award. 

Oh, wow.  This is hard.  Actually, it's too hard.  I have started reading several new blogs lately - and y'all know who you are!  I am tagging whoever would like to receive this!

Thanks so much everyone for the awards.  They truly give me warm fuzzies!

Oh, you're so wonderful. Thanks for the shoutout. I have already typed this same blog post essentially for tomorrow and crowned you queen as well. You beat me to it. I like having a blog twin.

Hope your husband had a great birthday and YAY for you with the cable!

Jenn said...

aww thanks shaina. you're the best :) i will definitely post about this soon.

congrats about cable - your life can now begin. what does basic cable include? i guess all i really watch is hgtv, mtv, and food network aside from the regular main networks.

your life will be forever changed with internet at home. i don't know how you did it for so long!

have a great weekend!! xx

aww how sweet! i love your new layout!!

Wearing Mascara said...

You rock my socks off! Thank you so much! :-)

Lucky in Love said...

Jennifer's definitely rock...but I am partial to Jenny's myself :)

I have always disliked the fact that Matt and I have the two most popular names in the entire world. Of course I want our child's name to be unique (not weird...unique) and he wants something completely normal and lame. :)

Crazy Shenanigans said...

Aw, thank you!!! Thanks for the shout out. Deployments suck that's all I'm saying lol

The Northerner said...

Thanks girl, have a great weekend!

Brittany Ann said...

You are too, too sweet! Thank you for this. I really needed this today. You're timing couldn't have been better.

And yes, my Reader is frickin crazy. Has been since Tuesday. I get no new posts for hours and hours, then they flood in! No idea whats going on.
