Awards Wednesday

Let's get right to it.

Summer Ross at My Inner Fairy presented me with the Memetastic Award:


Balloons, stars, confetti, and an out of control teddy bear. What's not to like!

If you haven't visited Summer's blog, give it a go. Make sure to read the great quote in her header.

In order to accept this award, I have to tell four truths and one lie and pass the award to others.

  • I'm a Texan.
  • I have two furry children.
  • Three of my best friends are former roommates.
  • It took me four tries to learn to juggle.
  • Five things I love: Mexican food, the smell of rain, mockingbird songs, a good massage, the beach.

I'm passing the Memetastic Award to:

Laura Eno at A Shift in Dimensions
Donna Hole
Tara at Feel of Something New
J.L. Campbell at The Character Depot
The Rainy Day Wanderer

From the multi-talented VR Barkowski I picked up the Happy Blogger Award:


Go visit VR. You'll be glad you did. Good stuff there with every post.

LOVE this award :)
I like sunflowers.
I like the total look of it
I LOVE that I don't have to do anything with the award to accept it!

I'm passing this award to these bloggers because visiting their blogs never fails to make me happy:

Elspeth Antonelli at It's a Mystery
Lydia Kang at The Word is My Oyster
Manzanita at Wanna Buy a Duck

Thanks for the awards. I hope all the recipients have fun with them.

Go visit. Have Fun. Meet some new friends.

See you Friday!

Joanne said...

Hm, I'd say the juggling is a lie. I'm just not seeing it ...

But Congrats on your Awards, and thanks for the links :)

Carol Kilgore said...

Happy Whisk - Thanks!

Joanne - You win the prize :) Some days I can barely walk and chew gum at the same time.

Linda Kage said...

Congrats to you and your winners! Does your happy place have anything to do with getting a massage on the beach while listening to mockinbirds and eating Mexican right before a nice rain shower? Yeah, I thought so!!

Laura Eno said...

Congrats on the awards and thank you, Carol! Out of control teddy bears are the best!

Summer Ross said...

Congrats on the awards :) I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday and I'm not sure what you lie is- I'll have to guess- hmm it didn't take you four tries to learn to juggle?

Carol Kilgore said...

Linda - You caught me :)

Laura - I thought you'd pick right up on that.

Summer - Can't juggle :)

It’s the juggling! Congrats on the awards.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Congratulations and thanks for reminding me I have an award I'm still hoarding...

Talli Roland said...

Look at you and the awards - congrats! I am the original award hoarder. I must get on that!

Carol Kilgore said...

Holly - Yay! Of course it's the juggling. I actually have tried. It was a disaster. Darn near killed myself.

Alex - No problem :)

Talli - If I don't do them within a few weeks, they get lost on the list.

Manzanita said...

Congrats on your awards, my Texas Gal. Well deserved. You honor me by passing on the Happy Blogger sunflower. Love that flower. I think there are 2 of us who like to be happy. Thanks.
PS.... I had trouble getting this on. Hope you don't get 3 of them... Ha

The Words Crafter said...

Awwww, thank you for thinking of me :) And congratulations on these lovely awards!!!

There are a couple of bloggers I'm not familiar with. I will come back tomorrow and check them out. My energy spurt from yesterday has worn me out, lol!

Have a great St. Patrick's Day!

Carol Kilgore said...

Manzanita - Only arrived once. Happy is good :)

Words Crafter - Happy St. Paddy's back!

Arlee Bird said...

You would have to mention juggling. I wish you could since the world needs more jugglers, but I think that must be the lie.

Tossing It Out

Carol Kilgore said...

Arlee - Juggling is definitely the lie. I'm the world's original klutz.

Clarissa Draper said...

Do you love TexMex or actual Mexican food?

I can figure out a code but you had me stuck on "furry" children. It took me a few minutes to realize they're pets. They are pets, right?

Congrats on the award.

Carol Kilgore said...

Clarissa - Both. And Southwestern. I draw the line at some things, though. Like menudo. And a couple other more exotic items.

Yes, they are pets. My sweeties :)

Tara said...

Congrats on the awards, and thanks so much for passing one on to me :)

Carol Kilgore said...

Tara - My pleasure :)
