awards :)

I am long overdue to thank the gracious people who have given me stuff, and to pass these pretty prizes on. Thank you all soooooo much!!

Premios Dardo Award from Jessi at Casual Dread , Lynda(AKA Holistic Knitter!!) at Lynda's Book Blog, and Save Ophelia, three sweet, and of course great bloggers who were well deserved of these awards themselves!!! Thank you so much!!

This is what Save Ophelia had to say, ain't she a gem?! : bethany of B&b Ex Libris - bethany blogs about books, challenges and posts gorgeous pictures on her blog. Hers is one of the most engaging blogs I’ve encountered. Almost every post has something to help readers de-lurk!

This award acknowledges the values that every blogger shows in his or her effort to transmit cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values every day.

My sweetest Veens, who got this award for the being the kindest and friendliest blog buddy is no question mine as well. Every single day she lavishes kindness on me and tons of bloggers is still honeymooning, well actually she doesn't have internet at her new home. I can't wait for you to get back girl!!
She passed it on to me saying:
Bethany - The Most Human Blogger - She reminds me of my social responsibilties, and is such a warm and encouraging soul. I remember, Bethany and J Kaye used to be my first readers.. and they inspired me a LOT! I heart You, Bethany :)

She also gave me this award on the same day!! Seriously is she too generous with me!?! ;)

My husband ate bull testicles in Germany. He'd eat anything, that man! He would have ordered lion, but it was out of season. Anyway, congratulations on your awards! And, your list is fascinating; quite adventurous!
