I first owe a huge apology to Lisa from Lisa’s World of Books and Ellie from Books, Fitness & Other Stuff.  They each have presented me with an award and I am just getting to post about them.  As some of you know that I have been having some personal issues that has had to take preference above everything else..  But, by all means, it doesn’t lessen how appreciative I am and what a warm feeling I get, that 2 of my fellow (or should I say Gal) bloggers think that my blog and I deserve these awards. 

The first warm and fuzzy was presented by Lisa from Lisa’s World of Books.  A very BIG Thank you Lisa for sharing your award with me.  And for those who haven’t met Lisa, please stop by and say hi.

And now for the criteria and passing the torch (am taking a little liberty here as we all know that we love receiving awards but it is time consuming and takes away from reading time, so I hope you don’t mind, if I change the rules a bit)

2. Pass the award to 15 3 other blogs that you’ve newly discovered.

Passing it on to (in no particular order):

Hubby is going to be very happy today because I can turn down the thermostat, more warm and fuzzy feelings.  Ellie from Books, Fitness & Other Stuff passed this new one on to me.  A very BIG Thank you Ellie.  I have never seen this award before

Photobucket
I will also be taking the same liberty with this award.
Criteria:
As a condition of my acceptance of this adorable award, I have to share five three things about myself.

In those five things, four must be partially fictitious, or enhanced realities (read – kinda true, but kinda not), and then one full factoid. I also must pass this award along to seven 3 other awesome bloggers. Feel free to make guesses about which one is the completely true one, I’ll post the answers later in the week!
1.  I wear contacts.
2.  In high school I travelled to Spain, Italy and Africa

It is freezing here in New England, and as I sit at my desk dressed in sweats AND a sweater, with a Yankee Candle burning (today it’s Sparkling Vanilla–hubby’s favorite), surrounded by my books, the heat cranked and I still feel like an ice cube

until a few minutes ago when I received a comment on my blog.  Have you guessed why?  Yup…that’s right…it’s that warm and fuzzy feeling when one of our peers inform us that they have an award for us.  And not only has Zakiya from Butterfly Feet Walking On Life has presented me with this honor, it is my first award for 2011 !!  If you haven’t visited her blog before, please take a minute, stop by, say hi and tell her CMash sent you.  The award is:

Thank you so much Zakiya!!!  I still get excited as much as I did when I accepted my first award!!
And now for the criteria: (which I will be taking some liberties with, as we all know that accepting and passing on awards take quite a bit of time and with Challenges just starting, we should all be reading  lol).
1) Thank the person who gave you the award, and link back to them in your post.

2) Tell us seven (7) 5 things about yourself.
3) Award 15  5 super-stylish bloggers this award :D
4) Contact those bloggers and let them know they have won.
OK…Warning…Boring part coming up…you have my permission to skip this part!!!
  1.)  I am a homebody at heart
  2.)  I hibernate in the winter..I despise the cold.
  3.)  As stated above, I do my part by keeping Yankee Candle in business.  I have a candle burning every day.
  4.)  It amazes me that hubby and I will be married for 30 years come April, where did the time go?
  5.)  We thought we would have a hard time accepting the fact that we were going to be empty nesters, that lasted about 3 days and now we are loving it  lol.
And now I pass the torch to the following, in no particular order:

It has happened again….and the feeling never changes.  I still get excited and feel warm and fuzzy when someone leaves me that little message…”I have an award for you”.   I guess it’s because I still can’t believe there are people who really like my blog, a blog that began as a personal journal.

Teresa, from Diary of a Domestic Goddess (don’t you just love her blog’s name….I do!!!) presented me with this award on Friday.  If you haven’t visited before, please stop by, visit a bit and say hi.

Now for the criteria that comes along with accepting this award, however, I am going to take a little liberty and make some changes.  (am running out of things to tell you about myself lol)
Here are the rules:

Share 7 5 things about myself
Pass the award to 15 5 bloggers recently discovered
Notify the blogger recipients
Link to the blogger who gave the award

1.  The happiest time of my life was during my boys’ childhoods.  Our house was always the “house to go to and hangout”.  During the summer, their friends were here every single day having fun in the pool (hubby couldn’t understand why the grocery bill was so much money but had to have pickies, pizza, soda, etc etc.)  I loved it!!!!
2.  Always wished I could sing4.  I am terrified of heights

3.  I’m a crier..happy, sad, whatever the situation, I cry.

5.  I am a Nervous Nelly and worry too much…working on changing that!!

I am now passing the torch to: (in no particular order):
